My siblings and I got a modest allowance as kids, probably $5-10 a week each. Once my older sis and I had reached our early teenage years we took a page from the UAW playbook and collective bargained for $20 per week, which our younger sister surely appreciated. Read more
Every one of these fools, including Lil Pump n Dump and Lil Weenie, are being laughed at by the GOP in backrooms nationwide. They don’t care about Black America, and the fact that they had years to create a plan but only revealed this *immediately* before the election should have been a warning flag bigger than the… Read more
The things I miss are all car events. Well, “hanging with my crew” events that just so happen to revolve around cars. Things here in Portland like the Vintage Racing Festival, the All British Field Meet where we usually get to take whatever new Land Rover model through the dirtbike course, and slalom the latest… Read more
Dat Tailgate Life! I swear it’s just about my favorite thing on any auto, and you know what has the very best tailgate experience in existence?
I always tend to notice any specialized vehicles, they are like the last of the coachbuilt era in many ways, especially hearses. I have spotted a few of the AM General MV-1 type disabled accessible vehicles here in Portland over the years and always wondered why they never got more traction in the market.
That’s clearly for street poopin’.
Welcome dude! I love the part about Hodge Automotive, did much the same when I was a kid but I never got as far as interiors and the details you went into. Too bad they are lost now, that would make a cool article on it’s own. Read more
Fukkin cool man! I mentioned in a message to you that I daily a 100-series LX, but we also have a black GX470 in the driveway. I love the mass and size of the LX, and could never surrender my tailgate (hell, it’s just about the primary reason I bought the damned thing), but I wish it had the design language your… Read more
I have elected to tip 20% minimum presently for all food orders, but so many of my local favs have now shutered entirely for the duration that I no longer have that option. Generally tho, I say tip *as much as you can* even if it’s 50% for small orders. We’re all helping one another and if you can afford to spend a… Read more
It’s most likely because they don’t want to commit to their lies in writing where it would be legally enforceable. When I sued (and won btw) a local Toyota dealer they tried everything they could to get me to call them to talk each time, and the only time I did there was a team of 5 people on the phone who started… Read more
Oh man I am sorry to hear all this. I hope venting did help a bit, no worries here my friend. It sounds like the best thing you could do is to do anything in your power to move yourself out of that place when July renewal comes up. Prioritize that for your mental and physical well being. This line really struck me, “I… Read more
Same here, and got to relive that experience back in 2010 when I was back in the Midwest, tho the branch I went to was closed shortly after because the employees were dealing drugs through the drive-up window. Read more
You say it’s your house, and while many places have non-eviction clauses on the books, if you’re state doesn’t or even if those statues don’t apply to home rentals like yours, you may want to dangle the carrot that you don’t want to evict them at a time like this but due to their continued disregard for your personal… Read more
Thank you for the further detail, I had no idea how this worked and will now pay special attention to the labels. I hope you find relief soon for your family.
Thank you for the kind words friend. Absolutely, one reason I bought this one is because it was a driver and was always registered, never off the road. That is exactly what kept her in good mechanical shape. Wishing you the best on your drives and stay safe!
