Using the word comet next to what is quite clearly a galaxy? It seems the automotive marketeers have been bastardizing the meaning of words for far longer than I realized. I expect better of a company named Mercury.

Looking at the backdraft website, it looks like the choice of brakes and front Mcpearson strut setup is a bit of a letdown, but that looks like a way better car than the ones based on mustang bits. Despite the lure of the big block, I think they’re better balanced (and lighter) cars with a high compression, aluminum

Philly is also an exceptionally bad airport. Absolute miserable people working there. My brother had two TSA workers get into a fight with each other there once.

Everyone wants that George Clooney money. Metallica even came out with their own whiskey, Blackened.

Buy a machinist’s handbook (even the student versions will do), in which you will find tap drills for just about any thread ever, including the different options for different thread percentages.

Modern manual cars - the ones that are left anyway, post 2011, or thereabouts? - have hill start assist now. So no more futzing with e-brakes, which are now electronic and don’t have any direct linkages the rest of the car like manual parking brakes used to.

Thanks for the advice - I was contemplating a freeze, but at this point Walmart hasn’t told me what all is needed to try and open a phone payment plan. If my SSN is required, I’ll 100% place the freeze. Honestly, not planning on buying anything big anytime soon, so maybe I’ll do the freeze regardless.

You shouldn't have to fear driving your vehicle. If you see him again, keep your cool. If he wants to lose his poop again, let him, but be the better person. It'll make him look worse in the end if you take the higher road, so to speak.  If he gets out of his car and rages on you again, get it on video and take it to
