Time to drive the Corvette!
One thing I like about Oppo is that we support each other. I think that extends to the greater Jalopnik community. I think it would be cool for Jalopnik to run a countersteer asking for their readers stories of meeting other readers.
My morning rating: 2/10. Hot water tank broke again (no damage). Gotta shower with freezing cold water though. Not a good way to wake up.
Temperatures are falling, weather is starting to get worse. I know that my time this year with the truck is limited. I will make a post later asking for advice on storage for both the truck and ST.
Hell yeah. This guy’s a champ. So much car spotting to be had in my village.
Well, today is the first full day of Autumn. I thought I’d do a summary of my summer adventures and experiences. I went through all my photos and here are my favorites.
My new job requires me to drive a ton. Hence the Kia. I think I’m going to to start gathering photos of interesting things I find on my travels/investigations.
Finally drove it again after at least 2 weeks. Also, today marks the first time I drove all four cars in the same day.
I haven’t driven the truck for a couple weeks. I need to remedy that tonight.
Drinking an Earl Grey IPA and playing Sid Meier’s Civ 5 with my wife. What are all of you drinking and doing?
So, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I paid for my brand new 2018 Kia Forte (*vomit*). It was listed as $17,330CDN/$13289USD on the window sticker. I walked out having paid $11,720CDN/$9019.86USD. Plus taxes, levys and fees.
Fucking touchscreens man. This is in the CX-3
So a lot of Oppo’s have made comments about my car insurance costs both on Oppo and during Oppo meets. I thought I would make a post that explains why BC is an expensive place to insure a car.
Now that I have 4 cars, I wish I could afford a detached house to keep them at. Sadly this infographic shows the median house price and the income you’d to buy it.
This is my Kia Forte LX. It has a 6 speed manual and not a whole lot else. It’s pretty comfortable, at least compared to the ST. Driving dynamics are for shit. Manual is in my opinion is terrible. I am glad I have this, I essentially drive in a 3rd world country (Surrey, sorry Haadoke) so wanted something that I…
I bought that 2018 Forte. Fun times. No pics....it’s a 2018 forte
So, keychains are dying out with push to start and all that. I bought one for my ST yesterday and had one for my D100 already. Show me yours!
I’m likely buying this thing. It’s fine. No AC (whatever, I have 2 others with it) no keyless entry (it unlocks like my D100!), no auto headlights. But it is a nice car, comfortable with an awesome price and warranty.
So, this price has to be a fuckup right? $10,161CDN/$7716.11USD on a brand new Honda Civic EX trim. MSRP is $25,120 (CDN). The dealer is closed Sundays as it is firmly in Jesusland (Chilliwack, BC).
First off, hug your significant other, kids, pets and cars. I saw some serious stuff today. I’m no soldier or first responder, but Christ. I came home and cried. Now cars!
