Time to change things up a bit…

Despite the fact that hardly know any of you, I’ve been feeling like a charlatan lately. And it’s time  I owned up to that.

It’s as if I couldn’t be bothered to pursue the goals I set for this site… and by some  measure, real life.

To be blunt, there is no sense in claiming to be a learned enthusiast of automobiles and then half-assing every expression of said enthusiasm.

From this point on, then, there will be no more spur-of-the-moment pic posts.No more gratuitous reblogs. Everything here has to matter, beyond being trendy.

If that means sacrificing quantity for quality sometimes, so be it.

It’s time to do this right. With a sense of purpose, to produce something of substantive and genuine value.
