I Dream of Speed has Moved!

It's official: I Dream of Speed has been moved to its very own website!

Blogger has been very good to me over the past year that I've been here, but it's time to move on to something more professional.  I have been working vigorously on a stand alone web page with a very talented web designer, and it's finally ready.  Head over to to see my blog's new home!

I have yet to determine if I will keep this version up to preserve my previous entries or if I'm going to migrate them over to the new site, but all future posts will be on there from this point forward.  Thank you so very much to all the people who have taken the time to read my blog and leave comments, that means so much to me. I hope you'll stick around and enjoy the new and improved edition of I Dream of Speed :)

If you have any questions or concerns with the new site, shoot me an email. I would love to hear feedback.

See ya around!

Spotted - Twin GT-Rs

GT-R Twins
Riverside may be out in the middle of nowhere, but it's been a bit of a hotspot for supercars lately. Last week I saw two Aston Martins which unfortunately escaped me but my discovery monday morning more than made up for it: a set of GT-R's posted up in the far lot on campus.

CNC Motors Open House

CNC Motors Open House
Being in Riverside most of the time, I don't get to experience exotics or supercars as frequently as some of my fellow enthusiasts out near LA. Fortunately last week I discovered CNC Motors, a luxury/exotic dealership out in Ontario and heard they were having an Open House event. After perusing their inventory online, I knew this was an event not to be missed.

Spotted - 2013 Nissan GT-R R35

2013 Nissan GT-R (V-Spec?)
On Thursday nights Bernie & I tend to hang out at a meet or two, but tonight we were late to the party & missed out. Just as we decided to call it a night & we headed back to my apartment so we could drop me off, we spotted this GT-R in the parking lot. Thrilled, we headed over to check it out and so I could grab some photos. I feared not having a tripod would produce useless images, but I was happy to find most of them came out. But they still don't do the car justice.

"Gotta Catch Em All!" My New Love of Car Spotting

Pretty Blue
As I mentioned on my Facebook page about a month ago, I've finally acquired my first DSLR, a Nikon D50 with an 18-55mm lens.  Words can't describe how excited I was to finally have a real camera to improve the quality of my photographs and my skills as a budding automotive photographer.  I look for every opportunity to use it. So lately, I've been compelled to carry my camera with me everywhere I go in hopes of catching some good cars in the wild.  I've now taken up an interest in car spotting.

Folllow Up: Josh's Scion FR-S

Josh's FR-S/86 Xenogear
My feature of my friend Josh's FR-S was pretty popular, so I decided to write a follow up highlighting the modifications he's done since I wrote it. He's been slowly acquiring new parts and doing all his own work, so it's been awesome as a friend to watch the process unfold. Here's what's new...
