Euro Brews: Cars and Doggos

by Michael Chandler

I started this past weekend off by not really sleeping in, and going to Euro Brews for the first time in a while.  I managed to show up before everyone (hooray poor time management!), and watch a bit of Petit Le Mans.  Then everyone showed up, and conversations were had.  

There was also a very good doggo who showed up in a 2002.  Good dog!  

Also this fancy lookin hybrid sports coupe made an appearance.  A decent amount of people came out, so here’s a gallery of that.

And Here’s A Snowy GTI

by Michael Chandler

This weekend I was helping my girlfriend move into her new apartment.  Hooray for a change of scenery!  Unfortunately, we had that monster storm.  I was confident it wasn’t going to be that bad.  They said 1-3 inches!  I can deal with that, even with the sub-optimal tire setup* that’s on the GTI.  Then I woke up, and looked out the window.  

GUH!  That 1-3 inches wound up being over 6.  That much snow would be too much for the GTI, but it wouldn’t be that much of a problem for the Nissan Rogue that was tucked in the garage.  I just had to get it out, which meant moving the GTI, which meant I’d have to clear the driveway of all that snow.  All that heavy, wet snow.  So heavy and wet that it rendered my little snowblower useless.  Normally, I’d have another cup of coffee and fire up the old Playstation; however, I had made a promise, and damnit I was going to keep it!  I grabbed the shovel, and got to digging.

And dig I did!  It was not fun, nor easy, but I did it.  And I saw some of my neighbors challenge the hill that is my street.  Everyone made it, but my God were some sketchy.  Have you ever seen a Mercury Mariner do a tank slapper up a snow covered hill, with a nervous teenage guy at the helm and his scared girlfriend hanging on to anything in the cabin for dear life?  I HAVE.  It’s pretty damn scary when you’re in the killzone, funny in hindsight.  Anyway, I managed to get the GTI moved, the Rogue out, and helped my girlfriend moved.  Expect a weird review of the Rogue here in a little bit, I have some thoughts on that crossover.
