I did a couple hours with this guy before I bought my first manual car. He's a good teacher, and having the experience was definitely reassuring when I got behind the wheel of my CTS-V for the first time.
I really liked the wagon, and it was super cool...but I fucking love the GT350. Lighter, more communicative handling, easier to drive smoothly. The GT350 feels more luxurious - my V was a 2014 but the infotainment would've been shit in 2009 - Sync3 by comparison is really nice. The GT350's power is more usable, it comes on more progressively than the CTS-V, where I felt like I had to fight to keep it under 100mph. And then there's the noises. Oh god the noises this...
My CTS-V wagon was totaled last week - some asshole rear ended me. So, last Thursday, I picked up this:
Hi - This is a pair of completely brand new with tags Stevenson Overall Co La Jolla 727 in black. Unfortunately, the fit just doesn't work for me (not enough room around the ass). I bought them from Snake Oil Provisions in Long Beach, CA without realizing they don't offer refunds. I paid $115, so this is a $200 discount for entirely new jeans (shipped to me from the store yesterday). USPS Priority Shipping is $10. Measurements are as follows: Waist ...
My pair of Antonio's elephant chukkas on my feet. Loving them so far. The color and skin together have the look of red earth that I wanted. The double sole and slightly toned down shaping of the waist and heel matches the rustic quality of the leather, but the shoe still looks sleek. And I really like the antiqued brass buckle Antonio found for the shoe. After two hours of wear I'm optimistic these are going to fit really well once broken in - planning on taking my...
I don't think I've ever had a wine where it was too tight/massive/concentrated to be interesting the first night but evolved into something interesting the second or third night. I've read about that in Cellartracker notes but never experienced it myself. However, if the wine starts off good then I've found it interesting to see how the wine softens and transforms on the second or third night.
Now, on the other hand, I'm not proud of this, but there have been a few times (just a few) where someone won't get out of the left lane and is being a complete jerk about I pass them on the right when I finally have a chance, pull in front of the slowpoke in the left lane, and then slow down in front of them until they get out of the left lane. I'm pretty sure that marks me as a douche.
I never thought of this as douchey... If there's someone clogging the left lane, I pull up behind them - not right on their ass, but the slightest bit closer than I'd usually follow. I wait maybe five-ten seconds to give them a chance to move without being prompted, and if they don't, I flick the high beams at them (no honking).
Thoughts on using Dormeuil's 10oz 90% mohair/10% wool Tonik fabric for a navy blazer?
Antonio posted pics of the upper of my chukkas - I'm psyched about the color:
