Surprise! lol my only new post is that I’m parking the car for the year… And this was like two weeks ago. I’m really falling behind on car things lately. I still look at car parts, but I find that I put them on the back burner longer than usual because I end up getting a little more excited about adult things. LAME
Also, the older the kids get – the less time I want to think about working on my car or buying car parts. I just find myself wanting to spend more time with the kids than wrenching in the garage lately… They grow up so damn fast, and it seems like for every moment I’m off doing something car-related, I miss something and I hate it… Where as the car will remain in exactly the same state that I left it and I think I’m OK with that.
Although, it was a sad thing to have to put the CTR away as it is every year. It doesn’t matter what car I’m parking for winter, it’s always depressing because you know winter is coming, snow is coming, cold is coming… and a whole 7 months of it too. It’s pretty miserable. I really wanted to paint correct and apply ceramic coating before I put it away, but it’s probably better that I do it next year. Just took a couple photos of the sad event…
The last time the CTR saw the light of day with Diana’s RAV4…
Swapping the winters on. Originally, I had the all-seasons on it because I thought I was going to be driving it before I sold the FRS. Then when I ended up getting the CTR as quick as I did, I was hitting myself because I knew I basically swapped the winters to the all-seasons for nothing. Now I had to do it all over again lol
Had to swap Diana’s tires over too… Such a dreadful task the older that you get. LOL
Done. Those are Rota’s btw lol – I know some people were sending me heart eye emojis thinking they were RE30’s. I’m not gonna front – they even have last years dirt on them. It’s just to get me through this god-forsaken winter.
Sometimes I think about replacing this because it’s so damn boring but it’s just so damn reliable at the same time. Plus, it just gets beat on and put through so much shit that I don’t know if it’s worth it. Not for me anyway – I wish I was made of money haha
Doing the last few touch ups on the CTR before putting it away…
It’s only been 2 weeks but even looking at this now makes me miss driving it. 😦
Still a booty that I can appreciate.
I still think about what’s left to do on this and there isn’t much on my list to be honest… Aesthetically, I’d like some new aero but don’t know what yet. I’m undecided if I want to Varis this bitch and then have to be paranoid about it all the time. I like having this as a daily driver and not having to worry about dumb things but I also want it to look bad ass LOL.
Power wise, it’s more than enough but I also want to at least get Hondata and maybe an exhaust… Still contemplating…
Either way, I have a long 7 months to think about it… Hopefully I’ll at least have something cool for next year. Until then, my winter posts will probably be of kids and my boring ass life. LOL happy hibernation!

Hey man! Do you think there’s a way you could move the archives tab and search bar to the top of the page? Would make navigating things a little easier, but no worries if not! Also just wanted to let you know your amuse shift knob post from a few months ago inspired me to get a tommy kaira hebi bebi knob haha
I actually just tried – the format of the theme/layout doesn’t let me move it up there unfortunately. Thanks for the feedback though!
And congrats! I always kinda wanted a tommy kaira knob but wouldn’t be right on any of my cars hahaha
