Harvey’s Homecoming

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | July 2, 2019 | 0 Comments

With his travels around Virginia soon coming to a close, no adventure would be complete without checking out a little bit of fun in his own home town. Harvey visited the Mathews County Farmers Market this past Saturday to spread turtle crossing awareness. Harvey the box turtle made many new friends and had some fun…

Harvey takes action against cars hitting turtles.

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | June 28, 2019 | 0 Comments

Harvey decided survival was not enough and while he got lucky many other turtles never get a 2nd chance. It’s his time to take action! He decided that it was time to go straight to the State Capital with his grievances, Richmond VA. The plan was simple. Find a good place to stay and search…

IROC Z 28 Camaro for sale

Delightfully Trashy! – 1989 Chevrolet Camaro IROC 5.7

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | June 18, 2019 | 0 Comments

Nothing says “hot rod” quite like a red Camaro with shining paint, a fancy interior, big back tires and rumbling powerful V8 under the hood. Unfortunately, this Camaro has none of those things. Instead, we can offer you a delicate balance of faded red paint, dents, ragged out interior, and an overheating engine. Picture yourself…

Once we made our goal of getting our trusty 300ZX to the Spirit.jp event for our debut in the VIP parking section last month, it was time to start refining the car and getting her ready for drifting. We’ve been pretty busy. I’d been driving the car to work a couple times a week and…

Update on Harvey the turtle: the bandage is off and there is no bleeding. Seems to be healing and the turtle is acting much more normal now. We currently have Harvey with us in Stuart’s Draft Virginia. Harvey likes the rustic mountain terrain! Next stop is first landing state park before we return to home…

This bold little fella caught our attention as we were heading to our families next adventure. Due to an injury, he will be coming along with us until he is healed but will be returned (to the exact same spot) as soon as we get back in town. He is quite a rascal.

Misadventures of a Drift Newbie, Part 6: Chizuru’s Debut.

By Tim Kondas | May 20, 2019 | 0 Comments

This was a big week for us! On Friday Nate came over so we could do some more work on Chizuru the 300ZX to get her ready for the public debut. He replaced some of the broken and duct-taped-together rubber bits in the intake plumbing, which cured a lot of vacuum leaks. She’d been pretty…

Chizuru has left the driveway! Teammate Nate and I have gotten the Z31 up and running enough to start making short ventures out into the world! The maiden voyage was last Monday to the the Autozone still within my neighborhood. The battery light on the dash was on and we wanted to see if the…

Thunder Turd Turbo Poop!

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | May 7, 2019 | 4 Comments

Everyone’s favorite ford to give a funny name. There really is not much here to make fun of. This 1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbocoupe is actually in fairly decent looking shape. It seems to be all there too. The automatic trans is an absolute tragedy but since we don’t have a key we won’t have to…

1974 Ford Pinto Yard Find.

1970’s Style, unreliably packaged

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | May 6, 2019 | 4 Comments

If you are like us you appreciate vehicles that exhibit a perfect balance of quality, performance, reliability, comfort, and style. Here at Roscoe’s, we don’t have that vehicle. What we do have is this Ford Pinto, and for $750 this shining example of why so much of the ’70s was just bad and needs to…

By Tim Kondas | May 1, 2019 | 0 Comments

Last Sunday my teammate Nate came over, and we set about rousing Chizuru from her slumber with the help of a new fuel pump. We thought it was going to be just a matter of removing 2 screws and popping off that access panel in the trunk floor to get at the pump, only to…

Sharing less than 5 minutes of your time can change the whole world for a little turtle trying to cross the road. It may seem as tho they are suicidal or just plain stupid but this is not the case. All too often whats occurred is a road has been built between where they normally…

Misadventures of a Drift Newbie. Part 3: Work Continues.

By Tim Kondas | April 22, 2019 | 1 Comment

Work has been continuing on the Z31, slowly but surely it’s coming along. Since the last post my teammate Nate and I have removed the carpet and headliner, and many of the other unnecessary interior parts. It should weigh less and smell better inside now! We discovered a bit more rust than we’d like to…

“Stumper” an explanation for the jeep rat rod thing in the corner of our shop.

This whole project started a few not so short years ago with a relatively simple idea: “After years of wishy-washy feelings towards modifying this car or that, I decided that I may have more motivation and better results making the whole car, more or less… Goals: Handle and stop like a Vette, Look like a…

Misadventures of a Drift Newbie. Part 2: Chizuru Arrives.

By Tim Kondas | April 5, 2019 | 0 Comments

So in my last post, I talked about how I fell in love with drifting in the not-so-distant past, and how I planned to start doing it myself. The crucial component is a car in which to drift, so here we are! The fine folks at Roscoe’s had this forlorn 1985 Nissan 300ZX in the…

The drift event through my eyes

By Darden | April 3, 2019 | 0 Comments

The drift event was spectacular. All age groups are invited. I saw people from babies to older people there. Of course, the babies had ear muffs and some other little ones had them as well. All different styles of cars where there. Some rusty and duct taped together and some shiny and sparkle. There were…

Hi, my name is Tim, and I am addicted to drifting. It all started back in November of 2018 when I was bored and needed an excuse to get out of the house. Spirit.jp Drift Series was holding their first event at RIR, which just happens to be about 10 minutes away from my house.…
