If you have been watching my YouTube channel your probably now that my engine developed a weird noise and failed. It’s time for that information to hit the blog and I tell you the long story of my engine’s failure.
Finally got to do a road trip with my Toyota MR2. About 240km of driving in total. Visited the beautiful city of Mostar and used the trip to calculate my MPG. Continue reading Road trip + 4age mpg

I always thought that summer is my favourite season. This year I am having my doubts. Continue reading Spring, I love you
As the year comes to end, many of us look back at what happened and make new year’s resolutions. Does anyone even make those anymore? Or have we all become aware that they are just empty promises that we forget 20 min after 12:00 on the 31st of December and only serve as feelgood booster during the fireworks when we lie to ourselves how awesome the next year will be? Continue reading 2016 – the year I drive my mr2!
Here’s the reason why I haven’t done much lately on the MR2. We are carless. Henceforth I can’t drive to the garage where the MR2 sits.

Before we dwell deeper into my story I first have to give you some background.
Getting my dream car is a bigger deal for me than for most people. Yes I am a car guy, but I haven’t always been one. I wasn’t one of those kids reading car magazines and car encyclopedias and what not. I spent my childhood days busy with other things (more on that later). I didn’t know or care much about cars.
Now I notice every single one of them on streets and can tell the make and model just by seeing a small cropped shot of a headlight.
When did it all change? Continue reading A bit of background
