Inflammable means flammable? What a country!

I strongly support any photo dump that starts with a Peugeot.

When I first glanced at the sign, my initial thought was, “Who in the hell drinks hot Dr. Pepper, other than serial killers?” Read more

The motorcycle aspect doesn’t really bug me too much. I never rode seriously, just for fun every once in awhile. And even then, almost never sport bikes because my previous unrelated back injuries left me with terrible spasms after long rides. And big hogs were never my thing. So I mostly just puttered around on my Read more

Same deal for me. I don’t hate the sound as much as I hate that my neighbors have to hear it when I come home from work at 1:30am.

Haha, I figured at least a few other folks here could relate. It isn’t something totally irrational like telling me I can’t ride a skateboard or get on a plane.

I definitely want to at least get her out to watch a few autocross events. Hopefully it will sway some of the decision-making. But like I said to someone else, my desire to get back into racing of any sort is less important to me than my desire to continue a happy and overall fulfilling relationship. She’s really an Read more

The perfect solution would just be to buy another vehicle and keep the Vette. But alas, we live in a city, and there’s simply no room for another car/truck. Read more

I don’t see it as toxic. I see it as a give and take. I’m sure I nitpick things she does or wants to do. I didn’t mean any of this as a way of saying I’m unhappy with the relationship. Quite the opposite, as the last seven years of my life have been some of the happiest. Read more

I was given a hard NO on that. No, as in, I will no longer be welcome in the house. Bummer, I know.

Yeah, a pickup with a camper shell would technically do the trick.

Hmm, perhaps you’re right. Just got to change out the headlight gear motor to fix that awful grinding noise, then it’d be all good to pass along to a new owner.

Nah, I don’t need Charlton Heston yelling in my ear today. But those front-loader people-scoopers were pretty cool... Read more

I wish. She has severe driving anxiety, and being a passenger isn’t much better at times. She has also told me she will leave me if I ever buy a motorcycle (I had stopped riding before we met). Even 50cc scooters are a no-go, which is a bummer, because I kinda want another Honda Ruckus.

Lots of great trails around me (northern California). So I would definitely get a lot of use out of an off-roader. I do also quite like the Lexus GX. Good call.

I believe I am. But I’m keeping the mid-calf white cotton socks. After all, I’m getting up there in years.

Oddly enough though, in a film about that very thing, the inversion doesn’t happen as often as you’d expect or like. It becomes more and more prevalent as the characters learn more about it, leading to a finale that’s fully told in both directions, but somehow by that point, it’s underwhelming. Almost as if the movie Read more

Do they even sell tofu at Walmart?
