I hope someone buys it, fixes it, and brings it to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival.

It’s been a while since I did the research, but I was thinking ‘53 still had straight eights, or at least in some models. But yup, Dynaflow. Because who needs acceleration when you’ve got smoooooooothness?

Doing well! I made a post about coming back over the weekend. Maybe I should link that again for the weekday crowd...

It sounds to me like you drove an entirely different car, so I’m not really sure how to address that. As for the seats; I really don’t know. I’m 6'2" and 170lbs, and they’re fine for me. Not as broken in as my ‘96 Grand Prix, whose seats I love, but I wasn’t uncomfortable. Granted ours has the cloth interior; the Read more

If you’re expecting Mercedes S-Class levels of luxury and refinement, you’re bound to be disappointed. We enjoy our TourX and are happy with how quiet the cabin is (it really is dead quiet; so I’m not sure what was up with the ones that left you with that impression. Maybe they didn’t have the ContiSilent tires?).

We Read more

It’s been there with me for a lot of life events, haha. And despite what it might sound like, I actually had to put a bunch of work into it in the first few years or so with the big points being that the engine immediately died when the head gasket let go a month after I bought it. A lightly used engine and Read more

It was such an underrated/underused platform, even with all the concerns about Big Brother Google that some people had (and yet people flock to Facebook, so...).

MeWe is actually not too bad though. At least now that I’ve figured out that I need to be looking at my Groups tab and not the main feed, lol.

They are quiet though, haha. But yeah, we’re planning on putting winters on it next winter.

I still can’t decide if I like the “Smoked Metallic Pearl” that we went with more than the Rioja red that you have... I initially wanted to find a Rioja red one, but I like the one we ended up with too and we got a great deal Read more

It’s my father-in-law’s car, so I don’t have access to it all the time, but this is probably the closest you can get to a ride in it without actually being in it. Also don’t yell at me for not coming to completely 100% full stops at the stop signs, it’s fine and the wide angle distorts how fast I was actually going.

This is almost car guy poetry. I like it.

If there’s one thing that’s always a certainty, it’s that Oppo is always just about to be on the chopping block. It’s been almost a decade since I heard that rumor swirling for the first time. I’m not too worried.

Ohhh, that makes sense. I think I had just assumed you were the same person and thought, “Huh, did he actually have an E90 back then too?” lol. Glad you’re enjoying your E90.

This generation of F-150 marks the end of the great truck era, IMO. I like it. My dad had one similar to this, except I think it was standard cab and was blue where this is teal.

Man, that’s awesome. It almost looks fake-retro with all that styling, but I bet it looked great in whatever Shell station it was in.

Wow, that thing looks incredible for that kind of mileage. Could be a great bargain if it doesn’t need much more than basic normal maintenance.

The price is hard to argue with. I just would rather pay similar money to buy an older car that is nicer from the start and with no higher mileage. We bought our ‘05 Subaru Legacy GT (we have 3 cars at the moment since we just got the TourX to replace the LGT recently) for $5500 in 2015 with under 100k on the Read more
