Weird Cars I (Really) Want

Hey, y’all. Today, we’re talking about cars again. Good thing they’re super neat! This time, we’re going to discuss 5 exceedingly strange cars that I want to own. I should clarify that these cars were not necessarily ugly or strange at the time they were released, but they’re not particularly pleasant to look at or own now. So, let’s dive in.

Fiat 126

This car is absolutely abysmal. It’s been covered by a lot of big YouTube channels, and it is so ridiculously underpowered that I can’t help but admire it. Having 2 cylinders in a “proper” car is hilarious to me, and I would love to see how terrible the acceleration is. I also enjoy how basic and barren the interior is and that the engine is located in the back. You can tell that this car was not made for Americans. I know that it’s probably a very deadly ride, but I want a 126 regardless. There’s no helping it. The desire will not go away.

Is friend.

PT Cruiser Convertible

To begin, I am not a Chrysler fan… or a PT Cruiser fan. That said, there’s something so delightfully terrible about the concept of a PT Cruiser convertible that I (for some sick, twisted reason) really want one. It’s an old lady car that I’d love to roll up to events in. The only particularly special thing about it is how ugly it looks, but that’s enough for me.

Who actually bought this??

Toyota Previa

I first saw one of these things in Breaking Bad and holy mackerel, it’s hideous! It’s a bizarre egg of a minivan with (you guessed it) lots of quirks and features. There’s something so weird to me about mid-engine cars, and using this design in one of the goofiest-looking minivans of all time is weirdly intriguing. It’s impressively freaky, so it’s earned my respect. Side note: An Oldsmobile Silhouette would also fill the Previa-shaped hole in my life.

Hey babe, wanna go on a date in the space egg?

Honda Accord Wagon

This one is less ugly than the Previa and PT, but it’s not at all pretty. I’m very used to Accords being sedans or coupes, so an Accord in a wagon form factor is extremely unusual to me. They’re also very hard to find on the road, which I suppose adds a bit of mysterious allure to this odd nugget of automotive history. Above all else, I think it would be the perfect partner for my 2009 Accord sedan. I NEED it.

I’d name him Steve.

Pontiac Aztek

I saved the ugliest for last. Damn, this thing is hideous. I’m not an SUV (or GM) guy by any means, but the Aztek is an exception because it manages to combine utility with freakish design like no other. Sure, people may think that I’m one of Albaqurque’s biggest criminals if I get one, but it’s also the king of the nuggets. I want one so badly… If only. :’(

Actually terrifying, it haunts my dreams.

So, that’s my list of quirky cars that I’d love to own someday. If someone wants to make a charitable donation (wink) of one of these buckets, do not hesitate to contact me. Just keep in mind that I’m broke, so it would be a DONATION, not a purchase. I know that no one in their right mind would actually do that, but with that said, I hope this post was at least mildly entertaining. Thanks for reading.

Update: When I was making this list, I completely forgot to mention the first generation Honda Insight. I’ve seen one around lately and I want it almost as much as I want an Aztek. I am very sorry for excluding this absolute legend of a car, and I hope you’ll forgive me.

Late 2014 Mac mini in 2022 - Still Worth Buying?

About a year ago, I reviewed the 2014 Mac mini on this blog. Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that it was still an excellent machine for productivity tasks, but it could also handle some more intense things you threw at it. Thus, it became my daily driver up until I upgraded to a 2017 MacBook Air a few months ago. That being said, I’ve still been using it some, so I thought I’d briefly share how it’s holding up these days. Here are my thoughts on this miniature Macintosh one year later! Performance  Over the last year, I’ve been impressed by how much this Mac can handle. It’s rocking a 2.6 GHz dual-core Core i5 with 8 GB of RAM and a Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB SATA SSD. What all that jargon essentially means is that it’s a moderately powerful little computer, although it certainly isn’t going to put newer Macs to shame. Regardless, I’ve been able to do lots of coding, video editing, and schoolwork on this computer, and it has generally worked pretty well. Granted, it can take a while to

Violoncello for Windows is finally here!

Hi, everyone! Ever since I first started working on it over a month ago, I have spent countless hours creating and perfecting Violoncello for Windows. Featuring a slick and minimal UI, lots of customization options, and support for Windows versions going all the way back to XP, I am very pleased with how the Windows version of Violoncello has turned out. As a result, I am very excited to announce that Violoncello for Windows has finally been released! Violoncello for Windows is packed with features, some of which are found in the mobile version, and others that are not. Some of these include: Open in main browser: Easily open the page you are currently viewing in Violoncello in your default browser! Custom search engine: Choose from Bing, Google, DuckDuckGo, Wikipedia, or set your own. Lots of customization: Change the background and text colors, and choose a font. Bookmarks: Easily manage and visit bookmarks. Jump to top: Quickly jump to the top of a page. (0, 0) Those are most of the

September 2023 Photo Dump

Hey, everyone! It's been a while! I'm glad to say that I am not dead; I have been going to the gym, doing school stuff, and taking a bunch of photos. I recently acquired a Canon Rebel T7, and it should be no surprise that I have been using it a lot lately. I have taken it around my hometown, on a trip to Elk Rapids, Michigan, and to the neighboring town to get some pictures of some friends' cars (2011 Camaro & 2017 WRX). So, for the first new post in forever, I wanted to share some of my favorite recent photos. Sit back, relax, and enjoy! Shot with a Canon Rebel T7. Lenses used: Canon 18-55mm EFS mount lens (the one that comes with the T7) and a Canon 75-300mm lens (EF mount). All pictures were shot in manual mode.
