I had an 89 Thunderbird Supercoupe. They used platinum plugs in those because the factory service procedure was to drop the motor to change the plugs. Read more

I did this in my “I’m so glad the bitch is gone” 97 540i6. One odometer bulb went, then another. $3 in bulbs and all was right with the odometer, if not anything else. Read more

NP for sure.  In my area,I am not sure I can get an LS for $2500, let alone getting one with a Porsche for an extra thousand.

This is easy - my 1997 BMW 540i6. Incredible car that felt smaller and more nimble the faster it went. Until I needed to replace the cats...and the cats again. And the intake manifold gaskets. And the timing chain guides. And the freaking odometer lights. And repair the trunk wiring harness. And fix the sunroof. And Read more

This brings back memories 9f my dad’s 1972 Ford Ranch Wagon (aka “The Hearse” or “The Raunch Wagon”). Ex police equipment car, so it had all of the heavy duty goodies.

I could have a lot of fun with one of those as a hot rodding platform. Five speed swap, Mustang handling/braking/performance upgrades and some interior work, and one could have a very mean looking 80s luxo toy.

The person who stole the truck had a decent start to their plan, though according to what LAPD told CBSLA: they rode to the dealership on a bicycle, which he threw in the bed and then took the truck. That’s a very green way to steal a massive truck, you have to admit.” Read more

Sorry, but I have to disagree with you here. I have done some stupid stuff in cars over the years, driven them when I shouldn’t have, and I have learned that it is bad to take your car’s brakes lightly.  Fix them right, with quality parts.  Stay safe and don't ram any minivans unintentionally.

Just a question, but have you ever considered POR-15 or getting it rustproofed every year?  Like actually trying to prevent it from getting worse?  Asking as a guy who had two cars with similar rot issues.

I have to go Toyota Sienna on this one. Easy enough to get in and out of, and the front seats at least are excellent when my back is giving me issues. Read more

For a while after I bought my first and possibly only ill-fated dalliance with BMW, I had my SVT Contour sitting on my property waiting to be sold. Read more

Buttons are one thing.  This truck has a damn T-roof.  I was alive in the 80s, and heartily endorse this development.

And what happens if a cop tries to pull him over?  Is it evasion if you literally are unable to stop the car because YOU’RE A MORON, SITTING IN THE PASSENGER SEAT, LETTING YOUR TESLA DRIVE ITSELF IN TRAFFIC?!?
