I dunno. I’m weird. These pencil irons with the pointy plated tips (I guess that’s what they are) just don’t do it for me. For 30 years I’ve been using a 25-watt unregulated soldering iron with a solid copper chisel point tip. I like cleaning and filing off the detritus of previous work and then tinning the fresh

Yes. I own a 2014 Pilot myself. Its not a truck and not particularly rugged as anyone knows who has crawled around one may realize. It does suit the family needs and I so wanted to get away from the swollen egg styling of all the crossovers.

Similar thing happened to the Honda Pilot.  I liked boxy better too.

Sorry. I don’t care for the shit-eating grin on this guy’s face and certainly not for the douchebaggery he is involved in.  I would hope the Honda driver got a significant payout.

These insurance companies are really shitty about claims these days. I got a complete denial from the company that insured the car that the teen who totaled my Lexus was driving. While it was his car and he was driving it to work, the company claimed that the only insured driver was his mother and he did not have

My long gone TA had a repaint. I did remove every last vestige of the UNLEADED FUEL decal, but over the years that thing had disintegrated and left pieces of the letters behind, while other parts pulled the paint off leaving the urethane bumper exposed to the weather. When it got back from paint, you could still read

My brother got one of those for US$300.  He got some use out of it before the transmission failed.  This price seems high.

I don’t see how this movie can be any good. The subject matter is just in such poor taste. Remember “Life is Beautiful”? While many people loved the message, others couldn’t get past the backdrop of Hitler’s final solution.

It’s the Co-Tanger antenna from Disk Smith Electronics!

Honda Pilot?  Its essentially an Odyssey that looks like an SUV.

Something English.  Jaguar or Land Rover.  They can be had for pennies on the dollar off of original list price.  Keep a bunch of money in reserve for repairs.

Nope. For awhile stations were trying this HD radio thing (AM and FM) which used parts of the signal to transmit digital data programming which was supposed to be higher quality. Not sure if its still a thing.

If you don’t have a whip antenna, where are you going to put your Jack-In-The-Box antenna ball?

I’ve got my old speaker from my ‘79 TA around the house somewhere. I pulled it out and put some Jensen 6x9" Triax speakers in back in the day. I left them in the car (what else could I do?, they were sunbaked and in need of replacement) when I sold it, but I did take my Alpine cassette deck out and put the original

How could I forget that it was Kid Rock?  That makes it a music video right there...

I looked real hard but couldn’t quite find a music video with my exact car. However, it was in a movie. Remember the bad guy’s car in Joe Dirt?

I just got back from a vacation in Spain.  Imagine my surprise that I was able to pull up to the pump at the Repsol station, fill my tank, and then go inside to pay.  It was like it was in the USA 30 years ago.
