I’m sorry, I know I was flaunting my privilege with that comment!

Gorgeous guitar. My old man is shipping me my Ibanez acoustic that I stowed in his basement after I graduated college. Interested in seeing if I remember any chord progressions after an 8 year hiatus. Doubtful.

There is undoubtedly a massive sense of nostalgia during the stay-at-home orders many of us are under. I think it’s given us all some extra time to reflect on and enjoy things we did years ago while life has slowed a bit. Hell, I’ve watched 90s Motorweek’s, damn near every past Chicago (sans Cubs, Go Sox) playoff game Read more

If it’s not under $4,000 with an LS swap it’s not for the common man!

The last 4-5 episodes of TST podcast Farrah has made several comments about the sheer lunacy of the new Turbo S’s acceleration and speed. He’s also brought up the whale of a speeding ticket he landed in it. I’ll give Matt the benefit of the doubt to blame the car this time around... lol.

My old man’s boss in the 80's drove a white on white slant 930 cab with a white on white Countach to match. I don’t think the phrase “good old days” is a misnomer.

I’ll check it out for sure. All too familiar with the entire Jeep range through the years and always looking for more related stuff to read.

Certainly agree that is a void that’s really opened up in the past few years. Speaking of Lotus, a V8 Esprit has a reserved spot in my dream garage

My sentiments exactly - I’ve replaced most of the time I once spent on the FP with Bring a trailer. If you’ve got a better alternative for automotive news, I’m all ears.

When I was high school, my dad and I were rebuilding the brakes on his ‘79 911SC. At one point, we realized we were missing a tire that we’d set aside while the car was on jack stands. I stepped outside the garage just in time to see the rubber wrapped Fuchs wheel zipping down our extremely long and steep driveway. Read more

Dealer here wants $367 and a very reputable Euro shop down the street from my office (A+ for convenience) wants $320. Yikes. I’m going to shop around for quotes a bit more, may just have to go with the $320 indy due to proximity to my job.

If my living situation was any different (i.e. garage/driveway) I no doubt would be doing it myself. Unfortunately, I only have a tiny parking spot I pay through the nose for at my building and wouldn’t be able to get it done there. Not to mention like you said, wrenching in the cold sucks immensely. Thanks for the Read more

I live in Boston proper but the GFs family actually lives in Fall River/Tiverton... I’ll keep them in mind. Thanks!

Stock wheels on my GTI. They might be the most susceptible-to-curb-rash wheels ever produced and I personally think 18s are too big for any hot hatch. I consider myself an average to above average parallel parker and I’ve chewed up a couple of my once pristine wheels. People always compliment them and are shocked when Read more

Thanks for the link. I’ll pick up that along with the PB Blaster. I always kept a can in my old Jeep and I think it’s just good to have around anyways.
