AREA DESCRIPTION

podFASTERJune 20, 2015The official podcast of Goingfaster.com
1986 PONTIAC FIREBIRD TRANS AM November 23, 2012   The restoration and ownership of a now extinct breed of classic American high performance grand touring sports coupe.  Come back to a time now almost three decades in the past when Pontiac really did build excitement and a time when there actually still was a Pontiac Motor Division of General Motors ... gone but not forgotten. 
THE 1986 PONTIAC TRANS AM DIARYFollow along with the ownership of my rare Firebird.  She's a garage queen, mostly, but a well pampered bone stock one and when I take her out cruising she always turns heads like a pole dancing nun.
1988 HONDA VF750C SUPER MAGNA
POWER CHOPPER PROJECT
June 1, 2019
  If you're going to ride a motorcycle, ride a real motorcycle and not some neutered, chrome plated, open piped dildo yacht that has all the grace of a spastic yak on roller skates, the sound of a flatulent elephant and more accessories available for it than Mattel's Barbie.
THE 406cid LINGENFELTER SBC V8What's it like to own a totally bad ass big cube V8 built by high performance racer and legend, John Lingenfelter?  I know what it's like because I've got one of his engines ... one of the really rare Lingenfelters and like G. Gordon Liddy once said ... "I've got a Lingenfelter and let me tell you what!  That thing is a Moon Rocket!"
 ANGST + SPEED January 28, 2016 My blog: updated semi-infrequently and nearly sometimes.  Deal with it.
AMERICAN ANGST January 18, 2016
Harleys aren't real motorcycles and the people who ride them aren't real bikers.  I've been making fun of these flag-slathered, trend humping, fashion lemmings since 1987 and for good reason, too ... they're a bunch of ignorant posers.
BLACK VAULT November 18, 2017   A collection of original fiction novelettes, award winning short stories, haiku, partial fragments and dark poetry spanning several decades.
DARK THOUGHTS December 23, 2008   An optipessimistic view of life in general ... I look forward to seeing the dumb in people.  Pretty much never updated anymore because while I was making fun of the world the world just went and got weird in a pro kind of way.
DATAPULSE December 27, 2009   Fast and furious 21st century tactical ground combat in the world of Metagaming and later Steve Jacksons Games' OGRE and GEV microgames  ... circa 1977.
THE LAST FLIGHT OF THE "ICARUS"  May 4, 2016
America's first interstellar mission and its remarkable failure.  Studying and extrapolating the spaceflight technology behind the classic Planet of the Apes movies.
THE MARCH OF THE TWELVE BACKSA long time ago, in a childhood far, far away ... STAR WARS toys!  From 1977 to 1980 Star Wars ruled my life as a kid.  I've still got a lot of my Star Wars toys ... do you?
"A SLIVER OF CHILDHOOD REMEMBERED" May 11, 2013   A decade long personal quest to track down, learn about, meet the artists of and acquire several vintage pieces of 1970's iconic science fiction art.
THE LIBRARY OF THE IMAGINATIONA more than three decade long personal quest now to track down and reacquire all the science fiction novels, art books, etc. of my youth.  My personal library from when I was a kid, the books and magazines that lit my imagination on fire.
"STEREODESSY - TALES FROM THE DRIVER'S SEAT" November 18, 2017
Real life tales, humor and stories from the street and from my life, submitted for your entertainment.  I've had a very, very interesting life so far. 
TERMINATOR : 2029 AD - RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINES April 5, 2011   "The Machines rose from the ashes of the nuclear fire ... "   Continuing James Cameron's epic tale of Man vs. Machine as originally told in his 1984 blockbuster movie "THE TERMINATOR" .

"You can't stop
Or I might pass ya
If you slow down
I will out last ya
But when you're down
You won't find me laughing
Just one question I might ask ya
It might sound like a disaster
Can you make this thing
go faster?"

- The Black Crowes - "Go Faster
