I think it’s just because towing something back on a flatbed doesn’t exactly make for interesting reading.

Is that the Facebook equivalent of ending every sentence with “Gnomesayin”?

Because they know that most of these probably won’t see anything more off road than the gravel parking lot at soccer practice, aside from the occasional dad who’s going to go “HuRr DuRr It’S FoUR WhEeL DrIvE I CaN HaZ RoCK CraWLeR” and try to drive over a boulder on a camping trip and either flip it or break shit and Read more

When I worked at Firestone this good ol’ boy getting into his Chevy saw me getting into my Corolla and informed me that I needed to support American jobs and buy an American car.... I told him my Corolla was built in Fremont, California, in a GM plant by American workers, and his “American” truck was built in Read more

I would love to see some basic stripper cheap ass cars. Something like a basic commuter car with vinyl seats, vinyl floor, manual transmission, crank windows, optional A/C, but like, just basic point A to point B transportation. I’d also like to think they’d print money if they offered a similar minivan, pickup, and Read more

Growing up my dad had a 32 Ford hot rod, looked just like the car in American Graffiti, 289 hi-pro, pretty sure it was manual too. Loud AF, two year old me HATED it but when I got older I was like Dad, why didn’t you keep it???

I’ve seen a VW Beetle with an IO-360 hanging off the back of it, not sure how well it actually ran/drove since from what I do know about aircraft engines, they don’t have a very high redline etc... and don’t really do well in automotive applications, or so I’ve heard... But with everything polished/chromed and/or Read more

I feel like a lot of that cost is parts, not sure what the labor rate for aircraft maintenance is compared to average auto maintenance, but seems to me like parts are 3-4x or more as expensive as their automotive counterparts, like $50 a pop for spark plugs? Forgive my ignorance if I’m wrong though lol

I feel like this should have come from Southern California, and the Canadian flag was painted over the Mexican flag that used to adorn the tail end of the truck :-P

The 164 to get is the 164 Q4, had a gear driven all wheel drive system that could vary the power delivery from 100 front 0 rear to 0 front 100 rear, with gear driven LSDs at both ends, and a Getrag 6 speed manual, alas only 5 or so were exported to North America.

I have a pair that’s made from a set of lug nuts welded together, and being they are heavy equipment nuts, one of them is left hand threaded so they’re stamped “Left” and “Right” :-P I also had 3 or 4 in my toolbox that were the “left” nuts by themselves, so whenever someone in the shop said the’d give their left nut Read more

Once upon a time in Wyoming I had an 87 Civic Si hatch, wished it was a CRX but it was in pretty decent shape. Got it for free (!) from one of my instructors who was moving out of state. It had up and died on him one day and him being an old-school carbureted engine kind of guy, had no clue what made it crap out. Read more
