Interesting concept.
We don’t normally pay a huge amount of attention to a car’s oil system, and especially not when the car in question has as many alternative sources of excitement as the Aston Martin Vulcan, the $2.3 million 820-hp track toy aimed at thrill-seeking billionaires. Yet one of the most unusual things about the Vulcan […]

That last paragraph is compelling, and sickening.

Well at least I know the above wasn't about me since YOU wrote it 2 wks before I wrote to you. We did miss seeing you but I was so tired getting ready for the 6am flight to Florida the next morning. Hope we can see you before the next race.

Mazda shared a nice little video of the new Miata "Coming to America". If you're wondering why so many of them are red, it's because the Launch Edition is red.

Took a little ride last night just before dark. Less than an hour from my house in the city to this beautiful vista of small lakes and ridges. I love Tennessee.

This is how I prefer to view America; from the table of a diner in some far-flung small town while I gaze out at my VFR. Life on a VFR means finding the best curves in another state, and Mabel the waitress remembering your order even though you're 300 miles from home.

Ahh.. That was our break time after riding Deals Gap (The Dragon). Good day that was.

Here's the same buddy's bike again in the background, but this time in the foreground is my beloved 2007 ABS that I bought new. We're parked just outside Deal's Gap as we prepare for the 318 curves in 11 miles at the Tail of the Dragon. It was a good day.

Proud to know these guys and to have played a small role in helping them get their bikes (pre-runner and race bike) acquired and prepped. What an adventure!
Jared Wingfield was about 70 miles from the finish line of the Baja 1000 when he and his Honda CRF 450X motorcycle overshot a turn and tumbled down a small hill.

Better than the typical Ken Block videos.
BJ Baldwin blasting his 800-hp Chevy through the empty streets of Tacoma, Washington is the zombie apocalypse we're hoping for.

These are the first five barrels of whiskey to be distilled in Chattanooga, TN in 100 years. I was one of the original Kickstarter supporters of Chattanooga Whiskey, so I stopped by their new distillery location a couple of weeks ago to have a look. They'll be off to Indiana soon to rest quietly in a rickhouse. The owner told me if I could pick one up that I could have it. I tried! No cigar.

This makes me weak in the knees. MotoGP for the street (well, for a very few riders).
It’s the nearest thing to a MotoGP bike with lights any factory has ever built, and a week ahead of it being wheeled out at a showcase event at the Catalunya MotoGP round, the factory set the finished

Well, it happened today. My Mazda dealer called and said they had received the ND (2016) order specs and wanted to know how I would spec my MX-5, were I to want one...So there's a Crystal White Club with Smart Key and manual/LSD in the pipeline somewhere. Maybe, just maybe, she'll be mine.

Testing out a new VFR800 demo thanks to Southern Honda Powersports. My buddy's (repainted white) 2006 is along for the ride and comparison. The result? The new VFR is a bit quicker, it seems, but the VTEC transition has been lowered and smoothed to where it's no longer really noticeable. The LED headlights kick ass, though!

Very good, just short of excellent. Consistent food, great wine selection, good cocktails. Service is fairly consistent.

I'm a Chattanooga native. I've lived here my whole life and consider myself a Chattanooga evangelist. I love everything local and unique about our great city, and heavily favor local restaurants. I last ate at 212 Market in 2001. I vaguely remembered it being slightly overpriced and undergood. Recently I attended a local tasting which included 212's lobster bisque. Wow! It was amazing. You could bathe in that stuff and be content. I also had seen their folding sidewalk sign showing their focus on fresh, local ingredients. Sounds intriguing. Fast forward to tonight. My wife suggested 212 as something new to try for date night. Great! Recent encounters with the restaurant were positive. Then I actually got there...the hostess was somewhat confused (by a table for 2?), and the service was slow and overly familiar (took about 8 minutes to put in a drink order after intial greeting). The lobster bisque was not nearly as good as at the tasting and it is actually better at the City Cafe (a local greasy spoon). The bread had no flavor and my wife and I joked nearly in unison that it was a complete waste of calories. The entrees were lifeless and bland. The wine list was nice, but the cocktails merely okay. We didn't even bother with dessert. The restaurant was filled mostly with tourists, and many of them were small families. Tourists, please, I beg that you try any of the other wonderful restaurants of this town and avoid 212. It smacks of ineffective management and a chef lacking abilities. Maybe I'll try again in 2031. On the plus side, the valet was nice and the art was very interesting and pretty.

This property restored my faith in the Starwood Group. After a poor experience at a Starwood (Sheraton) in Chicago just three days prior I was reluctant to stay at the Westin, but it exceeded my expectations. Nice decor, excellent rooms, waterfall showerhead and handheld sprayer, competent staff, great beds, very clean, super soft towels, and a FANTASTIC hotel restaurant. Really, the food in their southwest grill is good enough for a good-quality standalone restaurant.

This is the nicest hotel at this price point I have ever encountered. Fantastic rooms, marble everything in the bathroom, a separate glass shower and a bathtub, a TV and a swing-out lighted shaving mirror, competent counter staff, huge new LG TV in the bedroom, and a massive room with distinct relax/work/sleep areas, etc. Will definitely go back; totally worth not getting my typical chain-hotel loyalty points.

The views were great from a Luxury King room. The cleanliness was great, the TV was large and modern, the bathroom was luxurious, and the bed was good. Only very small things hold it back from being truly superb in my eyes such as a lack of bottled water for guests and somewhat slow wifi (although this might be a function of the relatively remote area). It's a 92/100. Very nice, feel confident staying there.

Decent but aging hotel in a good location. The staff is friendly and competent.

Definitely a fun time. The new remodel is very nice and spacious. 5000 slot machines, 1000 seats for table games, and 8 or so restaurants. 3000 seats in the auditorium for good B-list acts. The only downsides are that you have to pay for drinks and the comps are stingy, but the odds are good and the rules lenient. I would put it ahead of some casinos in Atlantic City and ahead of Biloxi. Better than a few on Fremont Street as well.
