right after I’m through with this cloud!
Millennials - soon to be screaming at Gen Z to get off their lawn.
Millenials are Gen Y.
FINALLY! GenZ is starting to be blamed for shit going wrong in industries, we’re almost out of the woods fellow millennials!
Should an adult really need to be told not to take a customer’s car for their own errands?
I mean, the schlub at the bottom used her truck for a Lowe’s run. He deserved to be fired.
Wow, the dealership took responsibility. I did not see that coming.
Are we calling engine swaps "bolt-on" now? I mean, you may not be notching the frame or welding new mounts, but it's still a damn engine swap.
As a manager of a small “skunkworks” I approve this message. We get hired by big companies with huge engineering departments and resources and do what they can’t in fractions of the time they would take to even agree on a spec. Why? Big company inertia. When everyone with a “C” title and their hangers on gets to have…
As someone who works for a large company, (non auto industry) I can confirm this is pretty much exactly how this works!
This. I remember hearing that at IBM in the early 80s it would cost them something like $2000 to ship an empty box with the corporate structure in place. This was one of the main reasons that the PC division was kept separate and used mostly off-the-shelf components instead of keeping it completely in-house like they…
Shareholders (or Wall st. brokers, pick your poison) value short-term gains over long-term stability. Investing in the future doesn’t put money in their pockets right now.

Jason, I usually like the stuff you write and it’s mostly smart and funny. But lose the profanity. It doesn’t add a single bit of humor, and it’s no longer shocking or edgy. It’s just a crutch for inadequate writing. You’re much better than that.
Reminds me of the old joke about how Rolls Royce never published power numbers, preferring instead to state simply that it was ‘adequate’.
I would totally drive a car called the Adequate. I have no idea why
If you lived in Oakland, it would still be a coin toss whether or not you could make it home without breaking down.
This is the ugliest vehicle I’ve seen all day. And I read that CT5 preview.
I don’t have this problem with cars, but musical equipment...oof. Over the course of my adult life, I found a few ways to get around some of it. The first was working in a mostly vintage-and-used guitar/hi-fi store in my early adulthood that had a small demo studio. I got stuff at cost, sometimes for free, always had…
it is, its how it starts to change when you have a kid
