2 of 2: So Dad and I got the OPTIMA Batteries Yellow Top DH6 battery into my Ford Motor Company Focus RS. It was one of those fun bonding experiences that make you feel warm & squishy inside.

Dad had a rough 2020 & it didn’t stop this year but he’s doing better. He wanted to dive into this project headfirst & I had to convince him to let me do the heavy lifting.

Once the battery was wedged in there, I asked Dad do the honors & start the car first. It came to life without hesitation.

I owe all my knowledge & love of cars to this man. It may be a routine task for a mechanic, but this was the biggest car project we’ve done together & I’ll never forget it.

1 of 2: So I ordered a Yellow Top DH6 battery for my 2018 Ford Motor Company Focus RS from OPTIMA Batteries. Customer service was great & they recommended a place to charge it. I took it along with the old Motorcraft battery for disposal.

Together these batteries must weigh at least 120 lbs. - the stock Focus RS battery is a beast.

I put them together on this adorable tiny hand truck, which handled the load just fine. But I somehow managed to get my finger caught underneath in the parking lot, which took the full weight of everything for a second. I didn’t even want to look at the damage as I took the batteries inside the place. Dr. Dad would later pick gravel out of my crushed finger & clean & dress the gash.

Following all this I dug out the family socket wrench set. It’s 25+ years old & from a company that no longer exists. For the first time I organized all the bits & was shocked to find that not a single piece was missing. We did misplace the inner foam that held everything in place but mom & I fashioned a replacement out of cardboard.

Next time: Installation.

Last month I tried starting my 2018 Ford Motor Company Focus RS & all the gauges went crazy. The needles swept back & forth & all the idiot lights came on. One of the wipers moved beyond the windshield & tried to hit the garage wall. It was a car possessed! 😈. We tried a few fixes & jumping it but in the end just disconnected the battery.

Today we removed the factory Motorcraft battery. It’s not very difficult but also not as straightforward as some other cars. Had to remove the air box to get it out.

Thanks to Jim McIlvaine for the informative YouTube video. And thanks to @ndtechny for the help.

Next week we’re dropping in an OPTIMA Batteries Yellowtop battery & K&N Filters air filter. The car also needs a service & inspection.

Like my Rocky II tiger jacket? I’m lucky I didn’t ruin it or get it dirty. It started as part of a Halloween costume & now is a daily wear.

Can’t wait to get the Blue Bomber back on the road.

This 1936 Lincoln Zephyr Recalls a Time of Neon, Art Deco, and Martinis

This 1936 Lincoln Zephyr is a throwback to NYC in the ‘30s and ‘40s. You can find it parked outside the similarly inspired Hi-Life NYC on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

NewYorKars stopped by Hi-Life Bar & Grill & spoke with proprietor Earl Geer. We got the history of the restaurant & car, both of which are neighborhood staples.

Aside from some mechanical modifications done for safety’s sake, this black ‘36 Zephyr sedan is stock. The car was produced from 1935-42 & introduced for the 1936 model year. The original engine was a 4.4-liter V-12 that could propel the 3,300 pound car to 90 mph. The base price in 1936 was $1,275.
🚙
Earl’s had this car since 1993 & has no plans to let it go. More here:

This 1969 Chevrolet Nova Has Been in the Family for More Than 50 Years

This 1969 Chevrolet Nova has been passed down in one family for more than 50 years. It has its factory 230 motor & Powerglide transmission.

1969 was the year that the entire Chevrolet II line adopted the Nova nameplate. The ‘68 Nova introduced the new body style & longer wheelbase.

Many powertrain choices were available. This car’s 3.6-liter straight 6 produces 140 hp & 220 lb-ft of torque.

Aside from a paint job & passenger mirror & rear seatbelt installations, this Nova is stock. The original bill of sale and owner’s manual are in great condition.

This American classic is a driver’s car with more than 100,000 miles on the clock. More here:

The 2018 Ferrari GTC4Lusso Is an Exotic Shooting Brake for the Family

The 2018 Ferrari GTC4Lusso T is a shooting brake with room for 4 & a prancing horse badge. This seemingly unlikely Ferrari can trace its history to the Italian carmaker’s beginnings, however.

Ferrari’s grand touring aspirations go back to the birth of the company - the 166 was introduced in 1948 as the first true road car to leave the Maranello factory. It had a folding rear bench. A long line of GT cars followed.

The 2011 FF replaced the 612 Scaglietti with an all-new design but retained the rear seats. The GTC4Lusso followed in 2016.

This month’s featured ride from Oloi, Inc. & NewYorKars has 4-wheel steering & a turbocharged V-8. 602 hp & 562 lb-ft of torque are sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

It’s Friday the 13th! It’s also been exactly 3 years since I picked up my 2018 Ford Motor Company Focus RS.

I spent months debating which car to get. My decision was guided by 2 must-haves: manual transmission & all-wheel-drive. This narrowed down my choices to the Mitsubishi Motors USA Lancer Evolution, Volkswagen Golf R, Subaru of America, Inc. WRX STI, & the Ford Performance Focus RS.

It wasn’t easy to find new examples of these cars to look at, let alone drive. I did manage to test drive a used Subie & RS.

The Evo X was out of production & it only had a 5-speed, which made it drop down on my list. It was sad because I found a Final Edition languishing at a dealer lot & they were willing to work with me on price to get rid of it.

When I drove an RS, I was surprised how smooth & well-equipped it was. My last car was a 2007 Subaru STI & that was a pretty barebones car.

The RS was the fastest & most powerful of the bunch. I loved the RECARO seats & new Quaife Engineering limited-slip differential. Best of all, this was the last model year for the RS & just 1,000 units were made for the U.S., making it a pretty rare ride. I found out about the Limited Edition RS by accident.

You know what you should do is check out the story here: https://newyorkars.com/garage/2018-ford-focus-rs-review-story/

This was my first car to own, having leased all my previous vehicles. Those included a 2000 Jeep Wrangler, 2000 Nissan Maxima, 2004 WRX, & 2007 STI. It had been 7 years since I returned the Subie at the end of its lease & I didn’t drive much afterwards, having moved to Manhattan.

This car is everything I want in a car. Fast, fun, loud, flashy, immature. It reminds me of myself I guess.

All the images in this post were taken on November 13, 2017. Happy anniversary to the Blue Bomber!

This LEGO Batman Batmobile from the 1989 Tim Burton - Official Page film with Michael Keaton, Kim Basinger, & Jack Nicholson was one of many sets I got just before the pandemic hit NYC hard.

There are many intricate details & small touches that connect this vehicle to the film. The obvious ones are the pop-up machine guns, sliding canopy, & beautifully shaped tailfins but you’ll find more if you look closely.

The steering works, though this is not Minifigure scale. I do love the minifigs that came with it though. Look at that Nicholson grin on the Joker!

It helped to have something to keep busy. I built two sets over a few months, taking my time to extend the builds. I have a Star Wars set to post next, among many others.

I only recently got back into Lego thanks to my youngest nephew. I get him sets for his birthday, Christmas, etc. & end up building half of them with him. I still have some of my childhood bricks but the highlight is a Black Seas Barracuda from 1987 complete with box! Those are worth a pretty penny now but I’d never part with it.

11/06/2020

Unicode's emoji version 13.0 release comes along with a pickup truck 🛻. It makes sense, considering one of the bestselling vehicles of all time is the Ford Motor Company F-Series. Pickups from the likes of Toyota USA, GMC, Chevrolet, Ram Trucks, & Nissan also account for about 20 percent of vehicles currently on the road in the U.S. Do you think it resembles any truck from those manufacturers or perhaps others?

The hauler emoji joins passenger road vehicles such as the automobile 🚗, sport utility vehicle 🚙, motorcycle 🏍, & motor scooter 🛵. Commercial vehicles include the delivery truck 🚚, articulated lorry 🚛, & tractor 🚜.

Then there are the people haulers: bus 🚌, minibus 🚐, taxi 🚕, & auto rickshaw 🛺. Emergency vehicles include the ambulance 🚑, fire engine 🚒, & police car 🚓,

And who can forget about the racing car 🏎.

The depictions look different depending on your device & operating system, & some have undergone changes throughout their history.

Which is your favorite? As a hot hatch owner, I like the 🚗. Wouldn’t it be great if you could change the paint colors?! Get on it, Unicode!

Screenshot taken from the Emojipedia site. The above emoji labels come from the CLDR short names but you can type in other words to find them.

The 2022 Volkswagen Golf R Keeps Its 6-speed Manual & Adds Drift Mode

The 2022 Volkswagen Golf R is coming to the U.S. with a standard 6-speed manual transmission (hurray!), torque vectoring, & drift mode. A 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic is optional.

This is the most powerful Golf ever produced, with 315 hp & 310 lb-ft of torque being sent to all four wheels via VW’s 4Motion Haldex system. The Germans took their flagship R to the Nürburgring for some “final tuning.” Surprised?

The understated looks of the previous R variants carry through. The Mk8 Golf launched abroad late last year while the Mk7 has carried over in the U.S.

The Mk8 Golf R, along with the new GTI, will arrive stateside towards the end of next year. These are the only two variants we will be getting for the foreseeable future. The last VW Golf R’s MSRP was just over $41K including destination, so expect the new one to be a bit higher than that.

The R’s his story can be traced back to the 2002 VW R32, though you can dig deeper & argue that it all started with in 1986 with the 4-wheel drive Golf Syncro.

On a personal note, I seriously considered getting the Mk7 Golf R.

Best of all, this was the last model year for the RS & just 1,000 units were made for the U.S., making it a pretty rare ride. I found out about the Limited Edition RS by accident. You know what you should do is check out the story here: https://newyorkars.com/garage/2018-ford-focus-rs-review-story/ This was my first car to own, having leased all my previous vehicles. Those included a 2000 Jeep Wrangler, 2000 Nissan Maxima, 2004 WRX, & 2007 STI. It had been 7 years since I returned the Subie at the end of its lease & I didn’t drive much afterwards, having moved to Manhattan. This car is everything I want in a car. Fast, fun, loud, flashy, immature. It reminds me of myself I guess. All the images in this post were taken on November 13, 2017.
