Something new..

Not a lot of news... yet. there are some good things coming for sure in the car department.

but today, I decided to take a nice day out with an angry russian and some guns. I'd wanted to do some trap shooting, but alas, their pidgeon launcher was broken or something. God damned lazy pidgeons.

this is probably how it works

So anyway I spent the day shooting my 1911 instead. Did really well at 7yds, and did alright at 15. I'll let you decide though. Pistol shooting is pretty tough with my eyes and especially since my 1911 has no semblance of anything close to high visibility sights.

Still I love that sidearm. Everything about the 1911 is how I want it. Single stack mag, so its narrow. Decent capacity (most mags are between 7-8 rounds, with larger ones available) and utter reliabilty. I bought the GI issue-style gun because I like things simple. Or because it was fucking cheap. Either way, its a fantastic little tool. Yes a tool. For those not in the know guns are TOOLS just like anything else. I could kill you  with a shovel if I want to, but I don't have to wait 11 days at Orchard Supply to get one. But I've digressed. I love my 1911. It's not for everyone, and its not going to be a carry gun until the apocalypse because its fairly inconcealable. But when SHTF, this gun is the one I want to have around. Besides...

I shot my friends .40, I can't remember the namer of the model, but its a Berreta somethingwithanxanda4 i think. Anyhow, it felt alot nicer in the hand than the last .40 I tried, the Springfield XD. The XD was nice, but wasn't as ergonomic and had a lot more muzzle climb than the Beretta.

And also, I've been stressed out for a few weeks, my family's been telling me to go get a massage or something. All I have to say is fuck massages. I feel fucking fantastic.

Back in the day

Before I started to go to school for artwork, I used to have a shit ton of spare time. Naturally I spent a great amount of that time drawing, particularly cars (gee, I wonder how that happened) like a boss.

Anyway the real issue here is this, I used to do a lot of Car-icatures for commission back in the day, and hell, why not start again. If you have any interest in one, leave a comment.

Also, some of you may have noticed that tight as button on the top of the page that says donate. I would like to introduce a new little game, involving said button. At the end of every month there will be a random drawing of those that donated. It can be as little as a dollar or as much as you want, but the winner will get a high res car-icature  of whatever car they find most pleasing. I'll still accept private commissions as well, but I thought this might be a fun way to get started. And now, for your viewing pleasure,

So I recently heard

The absolute greatest news in current supercar events: The new De Tomaso Pantera.

I cannot bring to words how much I've wished to see those words glowing at me from an LCD screen. The god damned Pantera is coming back! I (oddly, I suppose) never really bothered with fancy Italian supercars when I was younger. I know it sounds strange, but it ill what it ill. That is, until I saw this car at a car show for Fords back in high school.

I mean just look at it!

And the best part for a muscle car obsessed 14 year old was they used the Ford 351 Cleveland. My bloods always bled blue, so to me, this was the pinnacle of exotics. And hell, they weren't even all that expensive compared to most. I remember a guy at the show saying he;'d picked up his fiery red one for just thirty grand. Well out of reach for me, and it still is, but a thirty grand car these days is a Mustang or low end 3 series. I'd Much rather have that fire breathing Pantera

It's not the fastest, craziest or most radical supercar ever made, I think that's fair to say, but it was everything I ever wanted in a car. The Pantera was perfect.

In closing, I'd like to leave with you with this fantastic video of the camo'd Pantera leaving its factory. Enjoy.

Now if only they stuff one of these bad boys in there.. hehehe...
