Weekly Roundup: Here Comes The Mom Blogger (And Others) Edition

Let me begin by thanking all of you for your patience. Last week, I asked any contributors who had not heard from me lately to shoot me a reminder email. Every one of the more-than-a-few emails I got was extremely polite and not at all hateful. Thanks for that. I’ll be spending the next few weeks putting your stories, reviews, and motorcycle pieces into the system. I appreciate all of you more than I can say.

One of the contributors who has been waiting too long for her time in this relatively dim sun of mine is East Coast autocrosser and lady-about-town Ryan Cheek, pictured above. She and her 5.0-liter Coyote Mustang, affectionately nicknamed “Hank”, have been pulling some impressive PAX finishes in her SCCA region for a while now. This September she’ll join me and 223 other drivers in the SCCA Time Trial Nationals. Two weeks ago, we had a chance to sit down at a Biscuitville and talk about our motorsports dreams. I know you’ll like her first contribution to Riverside Green, which should go up later this week.

Alright. As the real Alanis used to say, “enough about you… let’s talk about me for a minute.”

For TTAC, I reviewed a truck and offered some tough-love-style advice.

Brother Bark continued the Buick Death Watch.

    On the Aston, I wonder how much Ford and now Kuwait ownership has weighed on the prestige. The cache of actually being built in a blacksmith shop by a cast of characters out of Dickens just does not survive being monetized out of the Ford and now Chinese parts bin. Rolls and even Bentley managed to keep a handmade car going, if only for show and residuals. The Virage barely lasted a year or two into the parts bin DB7 Aston era.

    Enjoyed the linked articles and looking forward the new ones here. And tell Bark I’m in for the Buick Encore Groupon, as long as I can use my promo codes. My Chase Freedom card’s reward category this quarter is nearly orphaned divisions from recently bailed out US companies with significant Asian revenue.

    TT Nationals looks like a lot of fun and is pretty much the perfect format of an event for an autocrosser who finally has something with a roof. Unfortunately this is also the year I’m not traveling for events due to the arrival of a little one.

    I’ve been meaning to visit NCM anyway though, maybe this is a good excuse to backslide.
