Dirtfish has some BUILT rally cars, these aren’t just Subarus with a few bolt-ons. I’ll probably pick a BRZ to gain some insight from the pros on a rwd chassis. Sti’s are available as well. So, any takers? It’s not cheap, but the packages are all 20% off right now, and I'm guessing this is the kind of experience that…
I’m really tired of the pickup bed being full of 50 bungees that catch on everything and take forever to get loose. Crews don’t care in the slightest about their work environment, and that attitude has made me a lot less willing to spend extra time coming up with things to help them out. But... That’s the wrong way to…
Give me your worst. I deserve it.
If a certain Miata-loving opponaut was to consider starting up another service-based business, he’d probably want to start off with a compact Ranger-sized pickup, and an 8ft bed. Lower the better. What options are there?
There is hope! Compared to last spring (last few years really) the prices have taken a pretty massive tumble. Still not *cheap*, but waaaaay better.
I’m hanging out on the windowcleaner forums, specifically in the build threads for work vehicles. This thread combines so many of my favorite things. I really need to build a work rig for myself...
So far not too much luck. The closest thing I’ve found is this telescopic industrial ladder that earned an 8/10 review on some painter’s website. Oh yeah, but it has a tendency to COLLAPSE WHEN YOU’RE ON IT. Is AVE the only guy with any integrity in the review business?
Used Grom’s go for the same amount of money as brand-new ones so it seems like a no-brainer? Talk me out of it Oppo
With any kind of high-strength glue? JB weld? Or is that asking too much? it’s a garage door spring for a manual garage door.
Maybe the fleet needs something a bit more modern.... Somehow I find myself lusting over E90 M3's. They’re cheaper than I was expecting
Some of you wanted updates on my budget Amazon bed liner. Here you go!
And then there’s spending 4 hours coming up with a proof for why the first player to get hit is much more likely to lose a game of chopsticks, and trying to apply that in a way that allows you to come up with an equation to find the ideal chess move at any time based on the board-state.
And the verdict is..... Meh. Too sweet
I deeply regret not taking the entire week off and going on snowy day trips, alternating between the Miata and wagon. Some snowboarding, some hiking... Ah well. Off to work
it’s no Miata, but the Volvo did pretty well carving through the snow and dirt on it’s first spontaneous day trip. We drove 200 miles round-trip, and averaged 28mpg!!!
Also known as “car-shopping with AIM”. Yeah yeah, I know. But look at these options!
I’ve ascended to a higher plane of existence. It’s time for a manufacturer appreciation post! I hope you’re ready for some hot takes.
By the end of the conversation I had their info and scheduled them for interviews as soon as they finished their shift. They’ll be coming in for training later this week. -2 door-to-door salesmen in the world. +2 potentially solid employees for me. Everybody is happy.
I had zero experience with enthusiast cars. The fastest car I’d driven at that point had been a Ford Probe. The CTS-V? It blew my mind. Ever since, I’ve lusted after these, but now it’s the coupes and wagons that really rev my engine. Look at this beastly thing. Aggressive, but not angry. Angular, but not overdone.
This might have pushed me over the edge. I forgot how good Joe Haley is. That riffage... That solo.... Oh man.
