Sometimes when the you get real bored you do dumb things. Winter in the prairies are conducive to this type of behavior.
These have to be the hardest working Work wheels I know (pun intended). In the short time I’ve known these wheels, they’ve been on whirlwind trips all over the western part of North America. The first time I saw them was in Seattle following a FD event. Since then, they’ve been back to my hometown of Regina and then taken on a long trip to All-Star Bash in California. These CR 01′s are usually found bolted up to Jordan Hall’s now-infamous Miata.
This is the one time of year when, for a few brief moments, I can stop thinking of what I need to do and look back at what I’ve done. I was really lucky this year because I got to see and do a lot of cool things. So here’s a simple list of the things I saw through my lens this year.
I got tired of there not being a Monday Morning Rundown. It’s Monday morning and people want an escape from doing real work. Old man Dave has been too busy being a grown up to come through for you guys, but don’t worry, I will never be a real grown up.
It is Monday morning once again so that means it is time for one of these Rundown things. The thing I can ultimately tell you is that the time is running down quickly before DODOlogic’s annual departure to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Let’s talk a bit more about SEMA and I will see If I can scrape the bottom of the barrel for some other stuff to talk about…….
This past Sunday was the second annual Fallout meet. Car enthusiasts in Saskatchewan only have about 5 months of good car weather…. if we are lucky. So even though it is not Fall yet, we decided to do it early before we ran out of good weather. So we got together with Taylor Scion, Valet Auto Spa and a couple hundred of our favorite people and did car stuff all afternoon.
Welcome to the Tuesday Morning Rundown. Long weekends are always a good time to sit back and reflect how great it would be if the 4-day work week was to be made standard. I can tell you from experience that it is pretty sweet. Now that we have talked about a completely unrelated topic to cars, we can talk about cars. Let’s begin…….
I’ve just gotten off the phone with Jordan, hes given me the directions to his place (Hotboyz headquarters) and we’ll be there in about an hour or so. We’re hungry and so is he, perfect.
I’ve worked with Jordan and the rest of the DODO crew for just over a year now. Its funny when you see someone on Facebook, you talk to them through chat and share content with them but you have never truly spoken a word to one another. Needless to say meeting Jordan and the rest of the Hotboyz crew made me feel like I was going on a blind date.
Driving up to the house I can feel some excitement forming between my friends and I. We’ve seen the photos of the beige beasts and who the heck wouldn’t be excited to see a miata with an SR20 in it? After exchanging some firm bro-style handshakes we follow Jordan and his girlfriend Kyla to a local eatery that is highly recommended, Memphis Blues. Poutine smothered in immense amounts of pork and gravy to pulled pork sandwiches that will make you consider ordering seconds. We were more then satisfied once we left. Back to the Hotboyz headquarters to meet the rest of the gang.
A beige Toyota Cresta rolls through the back alley and parks. A tall, skinny guy steps out, its Jack Connelly. You can’t miss Jack on the track, he’s slingin’ his saloon with his Stig style helmet at every DU event and has been coming out here for a long time. His friend Eric Zapata can’t be missed either with his 1JZ powered 240SX these three are sure not to disappoint any crowd.
Now enough with the chit-chat, watch this video to get a good look at Western Canada’s fresh grassroots drift crew. I promise they’ll get you all hot and bothered.
