Stage 8 was canceled on monday for bike and quad classes due to the death of Goncalves.  I expect that skipping the stage means that they don’t get the ride time but were moved to the next bivouac and began from there.

That makes WAY more sense. So Currie missed being the first American to win by a matter of minutes, but still his overall time was way more than Brabec.

That was a weird way for them to write that, but what they meant was: Currie wasn’t too far behind the bike in the final stage. Read more

I think the Supra was more of a wall poster nostalgia for our generation.

yes it is. I was born in 1991 and remember telling my dad to buy one instead of the Avalon he got in 1996 or 97. he didn’t listen to me and has since owned a Sienna, a Prius, and a Highlander Hybrid. But he loves driving my FR-S.

This is in fact an awesome junkyard. US Auto in Sterling Heights is similarly fantastic.

The Acura is a great choice. This generation’s design is my favorite TL.

I can’t wait until I have a new job and I can put my experiences as a dealer employee in writing. There are many, many stories. Names will have to be changed to protect the innocent, not so innocent, and the extremely stupid.

One trick I have developed to keeping older cars is to just fix them when they break and to just replace worn out parts. I don’t know how many people I’ve talked to that are thinking about replacing their car because it needs shocks and struts. One guy said he wanted to get a new car because his current one needed Read more

I would add, educate family and friends on how to be in your car. As a younger millennial, most of my friends have never been in a car of the same vintage as my truck.

Worst part of winter car camping (and winter camping in general) is dealing with the moisture buildup. It takes a lot of heat to keep things dry and shaking frost off of sleeping bags gets pretty old quick.

Literally watched this last night and was literally thinking about this video when I loaded Jalopnik. Fantasy vehicle for this would be a Sprinter 4x4.

I also don’t like having a delta in temp between my bedroom and the outside, but as CA residents (I’m NorCal), we are more than a little spoiled this way. When I lived in Tahoe ... not so much, especially that one time I was traveling for 2 months and (pre-online banking) forgot to pay my gas bill. 42 degrees inside Read more

Yep. And he could get a nice one and add some nice mods for less than $10k. Actually, I’ll sell him mine for $9k. Here it is:

Wow people have some pretty lofty goals in here. In the last year or so I’ve sold my Bronco, Mustang, and old 4Runner.. and I bought my wife a nice car. I’m driving another 4Runner but I miss having a fun car. My simple goal is to get myself a fun car this year. Read more
