Was going through and cleaning out old drafts. I found these two links that car enthusiasts might appreciate.
Preserving A Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III — a great read for those still driving around their old enthusiast cars.
Massive power is doable on any platform, but a few simple touches to refine what was there from the factory seems like a really good approach for long-term preservation.
This is also how I see myself modifying my car nowadays. More of a OEM+ approach for longevity, rather than modding for all out performance. It is especially important now as new car prices have gone through the roof, and replacement parts for my Mazdaspeed3 have become scarce and costly.
Life Lessons From A Monk & His Tuned Mini Cooper S — here's another good read. Yes, you read that title correctly. It's about a monk and his tuned Mini Cooper S. I didn't even realize monks can own cars, more so a tuned/modified one at that. This was an eye opening read for me. But more important is the monk's thoughts on finding a balance in life and how that affected how he modified his car.
