Payless wasn’t fooling around with their car classifications this time. They handed me the keys to a 2018 Kia Rio Quinto and sent me on my way.
Gonna spend two weeks down in Puerto Rico checking on a rental home down there, and hopefully spot the elusive US-spec Kodo Mazda2. Spirit, 'cause it was cheap and non-stop, and also not Frontier.
I’ve seen this car at the parking lot of the shop where I bring my cars for annual inspection and occasional tough jobs. Yesterday I got to hear it idling. As I expected, it’s owned by one of the techs working there. I didn’t get to ask him what kind of work he’s put into it, but I think the sound tells most of the …
I don't have a map for this, so have a truck instead.
I'm quite certain that the tram cars here have run over more obstacles than the monster truck off the boardwalk.
Apparently my wife has decided to get into the habit of taking in unwanted vehicles into our garage-less, driveway-less household instead of the more typical stray animals. Thus, we’re now the owners of a U152 Explorer.
FC Kerbeck must be hoarding a bunch of C7s in anticipation of the boomers complaining about the commie mid-engined C8.
Marquise (a.k.a. Kiki) is a big girl, but she definitely can’t stand the heat. A short walk at the park in dry 80° weather had her panting something fierce. Some parks near my house have dog-level water fountains, but unfortunately this one doesn’t, so we didn’t stay long. She enjoyed it, though, what with all the …
Marquise is staying with me this weekend while her humans travel out of state. She’s already proving to be a very good girl. I think I’ll take her out on a ride tomorrow.
Life is like a parking lot, you never know what kinds of cars you’ll find there.
Nifty hardware on display at the Independence Day parade in town today.
Stickered-up Mazda 2 down in Manayunk, I salute you.
A lunch has been had. That is all.
The driver of this Bimmer at KPHL’s short-term parking lot felt the need to leave the towing bolt installed, I guess in case it needs to, you know, get towed.
First time spotting a Gladiator in the wild, at the local Target parking lot. Looks nice, I think, but for the price I'd go with a Colorado.
I wonder if Mergio wouldve gone through with it
Super clean first-gen Town Car. Not my cuppa, but not bad at all.
Back home. Arrived all tired and stankerous, so I headed straight for the shower and will have a beer shortly. The Miata did its job competently, or at least did what I asked of it.
Needed to do a job that requires bringing my tools. Can't take wife's car because she has things to do and is manuél-challenged. What do? Stuff the smaller gear wherever it'll fit - trunk, parcel shelf, passenger seat, the tunnels under the parcel shelf - and hang the big naughty bits off the backside. Aerodynamic…
This X7 showed up at our office complex recently. If not for the ugly grille I’d have thought it’s a VW.
