Hello everyone! First off, I’d like to thank you for taking time out of your day to check out my blog. If you’re here, you may be a bit curious about who maintains this blog.
Slice of my Life
Well, my name is Brian and I work in software development as a QA Engineer. I was born and raised in the Southern California region and have lived in San Diego County for the majority of my life. Growing up I had a strong interest in cars, multimedia, and technology.
“So, Brian. What do YOU drive?”
My first car was a silver 1989 Nissan 240sx SE. After an accident, I picked up a 1991-1993 front clip that happened to be off of a “chuki” 180sx. The car encompassed everything I loved about late 90s drift culture. I decided to move on from this car in 2012 after my motor seized when I was not aware that debris on the I15 dented my oil pan and blocked the oil pick-up. (FML)
My second car ended up being a gold 1996 Nissan 240sx with an S13 SR20DET red top that I picked up in 2008. After realizing that all the abuse at the track was not preferable for my daily driver, I ended up picking up my s14.
As of October 2013, I’ve officially made the jump over to Mazda since I wanted something fun with a huge aftermarket with CARB legal parts. After a long search, I ended up picking up a supercharged Laguna Blue 1994 Mazda Miata. Since then, I’ve been bit by the Mazda bug and I don’t plan on switching unless somehow Nissan comes back with a new S16 or Toyota puts out an irresistible FR-S model. My car is pretty much complete and the only changes I may make will pertain to the tune; I’ve been playing with the idea of bumping up boost and going to a complete ECU replacement.
