I know one of my 10mm sockets dropped down a funnel-like cavity in the dashboard of my Lexus. It completely went out of sight and no looking with flashlights or fishing around with magnetic grab-its ever recovered it. That car got wrecked and went away with my 10mm socket somewhere still in it. Sigh.

If people have the money to pay for a car to drive and park in the city, then what makes people think that making public transport free would incentivize them to stop doing that? Presumably, the fares are already cheaper than what they are doing now. They are chasing a market segment that they don’t appeal to anyway. Read more

I could could probably scrape up the cash for this, but my daughter would have to come home from that pricey private college and enroll in junior college. C’est la vie!

You have seen Gumball Rally?  Rolling pitstop in the back of a rolling semi-truck.

Impala? When I saw that render, I immediately saw Chevy Nova.

I had a 2006 RX400h (Toyota Harrier) V6 and it went very well to 160K miles when a kid ran into it and destroyed it. I never even changed the brake pads as they just didn’t wear due to regenerative braking. The hybrid system never gave me a lick of trouble. The only problem I had was a front wheel bearing, and I do Read more

It says right on the data sticker. 24 VAC on the secondary. I’m guessing its for his attic-mounted HVAC system. Thermostats and HVAC controls run on 24 volts AC. I’m guessing the red switch is the reset switch for some internally mounted breaker. It’s in the ceiling of the closet so he doesn’t need to go into the Read more

Go talk to one of those billboard personal injury lawyers. They will tell you in the first consultation if anything is there that money can be gotten out of. You don’t want to sue this guy on a fee basis or on your own. Its such a G-D hassle to do it yourself, and you’ll never collect anyway.  I got hit by an Read more

Buck up! You’ll be 76 before you know it and have another streak to brag about.

Both cars exist essentially in the same weather conditions. Hot summers kill batteries and they don’t die until it gets cold.

It looks like its a referral payment scam.  In its most efficient form it would harvest phone numbers from ads and message them to buy a vehicle report through the link provided.  The URL redirects to another site where the scammer is getting a referral payment.  My thoughts anyway.

The problem with microcars is that they are so cute that they don’t get any respect, but that can be remedied.

I had an RX400h, and the longest I let it sit was for 3 weeks so probably not a good data point. The battery will charge to a full charge by just idling it, but like any car its probably better to take it for a little drive. In my time of hybrid ownership, the oddest thing I found was that the car wouldn’t start if Read more

I rented a John Cooper Works edition in Portugal a couple months back. Now, I’ll say that I did not get a chance to drive it with much spirit, as it wasn’t the car I had planned on renting. I would be taking 4 adult sized humans and a boot brimming over with luggage on an Iberian adventure of many miles of highway

Yeah. About 10 years ago the MINI dealer had a burger place inside. People said it had good food, but I never wanted to chance it. There also was an indoor gun range that set up a deli inside, also from about the same time. I guess it was a thing.

My uncle bought me something very similar to this many years ago, its brass but isn’t a Snap-On. That and an old Schwinn high-pressure pencil gauge are my 2 go-to pressure measuring devices.  I’m old so I like old stuff anyway.

With that front grill, I figured it was a future Plymouth.

Yup. My first CD ‘deck’ was a specially designed Sony CD Discman player that ran on a cigarette lighter 12V plug and had a motion damping spring mount that taped down to your dashboard. You’d pop the cassette adapter into the cars tape deck and presto!, you had CD in your car.
