David "Derpy Drift" Adams

A New Look, A New Location, A New Start!

So we’ve had some interesting times in the Derpy Drift project, yeah?  There have been some crazy years, we’ve gone from heavy blogging to no blogging to heavy blogging to vlogging. It’s been insane! HAHA!
Well, I’m sorta back, and we’ve got a LOT of updates. Firstly, Derpy, as she was known previously, is no more. Much of the livery has been removed and while we understand this will disappoint a lot of viewers, it’s strategic. In pursuing a more focused approach to racing, this move will help open up a platform for support and representation that we feel many will appreciate. Also, the newly-fashionable “stickerless” look is worth giving a shot.

Don’t worry, I’ll leave a nod or two on the car for those who know how this car became a spotlight vehicle in the first place. I have not and will not forget my fans and friends I’ve made over the years. Just because the vehicle is changing doesn’t mean I am.  Time helps us to evolve, not change.

 

I have, regrettably , had to part ways with a few vehicles. The RX7 is sold as is the F-150. Not a fun decision to have to make and it wasn’t for financial reasons, but for space and convenience purposes. I am now located in Carmel, IN as part of some unexpected life turmoil but am doing quite well for myself, so that’s good!

 

My newest toy, to live life with Octavia (my 2013 Buick Verano), is a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata. Her name is Audrey and she’s an absolute BLAST. Every little twist and turn of the modification-wheel makes this car infinitely better than it was before. She handles like a Miata, goes like a Porsche. It’s tough to explain how this car makes life and how well she fills the void while Derpy undergoes surgery and awaits her next event.

I’ll update the blog with pictures and videos as they come to fruition. Hopefully it can be a constant thing again, yes? HAHA!

Anyway, pictures and video!

Some pictures:

Derpy, as she sits now:

Derpy as she sits now. Large vinyls removed, the remainder will happen once she’s up here so we can pick and choose, then she’ll get painted 🙂

 

Coilovers installed, brakes (obviously not shown) are installed as well. So she handles and stops better!

 

The cage now has door bars and is fully welded in. There will be a rear cross section added in addition to this.

 

 

Here’s Audrey:

Here’s how she looked the day I bought her

At the dealer the day I picked her up!

 

 

Here’s how she looks now! Not much different but a few additions.  Video first, then pictures ^_^
