Yeah, I mean, that’s certainly a point.

That’s what I did when we moved 6 years ago. Rented their biggest trailer for a week (which I even got a discount for), parked it in the driveway, and took my time to load it. It’s a much, much better way to do it.
Plus, they don’t seem to care much about their trailers. I’ve probably rented one from them a dozen… Read more
It’s very amusing to me that people happily shell out so much more money for the trucks out of, I assume, a total fear of towing. I’ve been moving my dad’s stuff after he passed, and it’s a 100 mile round trip to his place and back to mine. I save so much money renting their big trailers instead of a truck, because… Read more
Why? What possible purpose is there to watching the debate? Whose mind isn’t made up already? Could someone really be on the fence about voting for Trump? There’s really only four options in the upcoming election, none of which hinge on the outcome of a debate. 1) Trump is your perverse demigod and nothing will change… Read more
Tax evasion. It’s going to get all the Trumps. Or at least, I can only hope.
There’s nothing quite as unlivable as a open-diff rwd car in the winter. I had a Ford Aero minivan I bought from the post office fleet and I have never driven a vehicle that performed worse in the snow. Full on dangerous. Everyone’s solution of “just add weight” works to a point, but it also amplifies the pendulum… Read more
It’s a ludicrous and unsustainable goal. California already has grid problems, with routine rolling blackouts during heat waves. How are they going to deal with that even with only 50% of their cars being all-electric. While you can physically build a nuclear power plant in five years, you’ll spend another five years… Read more
Are all Harley riders deaf? I mean, it makes sense. But my god the loud music over the loud pipes is insane. I’ll be sitting in traffic within 20 feet of one and the music actually hurts my ears...
Someone made the point the other day that it’s about the “extreme” looks that the entire line of cars now has. When the standard car has as much trim, detail, and absurd aero work as it does now, when the M3/M4 whatever come, they have to look EVEN MOAR EXTREME. And you end up with the ridiculous head/taillights to… Read more
He was actually very good about it and had pre-checked that I did not want any extended warranty, and assumed I wasn’t interested or I would have asked. Then for shits and giggles, I actually asked, because I was curious to what degree of a rip off it was. And honestly... it wasn’t that bad. $1,500 would have gotten a… Read more
A friend of mine had this car when I was in high school. It was only 10 years old then, so it seemed a lot more appealing then. It was an absolute blast to drive though. In a car that only weighed 2,400 pounds or so, 130 hp felt like a solid amount. It handled pretty well, and we had a lot of fun in it. At $1,500 I’d… Read more
I just bought a used car cash (although it was a $11k car) and still had to talk to the finance guy and push off the extended warranty. They are the ones that finalize all the paperwork, so you always have to talk to them regardless of you financing or buying outright.
Here’s a dumb question for you: how do you get the thing up there? I have a Forester, nowhere near as tall as an SUV, and I found it obnoxious and way too much effort to ever even semi-routinely lift the 100+ pound loaded roof box up on the rack and then get it back down. Loading it up with stuff once I got it up… Read more
Lol. Well, as far as phones prices go these days, mine was actually pretty cheap! I bought my LG V60 around 3 months ago and paid $799 outright for it. I now pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $60 a month for unlimited data and voice. Although I only get that price because I have two phones on the plan. It certainly… Read more
Ridiculous argument. Yes, phones are expensive now. But they do an incredible amount, and we demand constant perfection from them. And largely, they deliver. I use my phone for work. I tether my laptop to it for internet while on the road. When I was still in law school I used a bluetooth keyboard and MS OneNote and… Read more
You want six grand for a 21 year old, 270k mile BMW apparently held together with duct tape? Hard pass fam. ND.
US Route 20, the longest highway in the country, has a pretty amazing range of scenery, going 3,365 miles from Boston, MA to Newport, OR. I haven’t done the whole thing, but big parts of it on the east coast, and it’s a great (slow) way to cross the country.
Every Sunday since June my wife and I pick somewhere within two hours to go to and explore that area. We’re lucky to have done a lot of awesome international travel prior to the pandemic, and we miss it. But, we live in midstate NY, so there’s a whole lot of amazing variety within a two-hour circle. It’s been a lot of… Read more
This intermediary thing is bonkers. I sold on eBay for years, but stopped maybe five years ago. My Father passed away and had all sorts of interesting things to sell, but I marked no international because I ALWAYS had headaches with it. Well, little did I know, one of the shipping places was an intermediary which then… Read more
I guess any progress is good progress. But, it reeks of virtue signaling. FIA holds races across multiple dictatorships with long, long lists of human rights violations. So to call this a “human rights” issue and then ignore other human rights issues, well, it becomes problematic. But Mercedes knows that by and large,… Read more
