I would have preferred the MR2 if it was running. I've honestly not had a chance to really drive it til I was tired like that, but it broke down right as I got it all set up for autocross. I've driven it about 10k miles total.

The TDI is very forgiving and my driving skill in snappy RWD cars is in heavy development, so it's probably not a bad thing that I was in the VW for my first drive on that road. I've never been on a twisty road with no traffic for so long. It actually became quite a chore. Generally I'll get stuck behind a line of cars after a few corners and just yearn the rest of the drive. This time it was seriously deserted though. I think I saw 6 cars come the opposite direction, and really only got behind one along the whole 209 route.

After I warmed up the first couple miles I got into a trance-like rhythm and was floating from corner to corner til I got stuck behind a pickup truck about 20 miles in. He was seriously getting it though (way in the other lane through turns...) my tires were still making noise going through the corners (in my lane) as I was following him. I'll definitely be going back in the MR2 after I get an engine in it

replaced the coolant expansion tank on the cayenne and that fixed all my cooling issues! was worried it might be the dreaded coolant pipe issue but temps held up in bumper to bumper holiday traffic on a 90+ degree day, so I'll called it fixed.

will replace the broken motor mount I discovered in the process and convert the headlights to LED bulbs and probably add a new tow hitch (who puts a class 1 on anything?!)

Worked on the 2001 camry grocery getter. Replaced the brake pads and hammered out and replaced 2 wheel studs while I was at it. Topped it off with an oil change and she's good to go for a while.
