I hate fall.
Day two of fall term Of my senior year and my previously flawless and amazing 2 year old HP Envy laptop has bricked itself. The charger was only putting out .2 volts, so I swapped it out to one that was putting out a proper 19.7 volts. Still bricked.
Rise and shine, take a swig of Studebaker Packard motor oil...
What’s everyone's take on these? Is there anything that makes this better or worse than a Caravan, or is it exactly the same in every way aside from the badge? I like the looks, and the are plenty around me for cheapish. It could make a good wife car.
A pretty red ‘57 President built by Studebaker of Canada. It was super pretty, and had a gold maple leaf on the dash where mine has the Studebaker crest. The Stromberg side draft 2bbl had been phased out in the USA by ‘57.
I’m in Tacoma with my dad for the Studebaker Driver’s Club International Meet. Tomorrow is the big car show, but today we walked around the swap meet (it was kinda pitiful. Dad found some parts for a ‘57 Packard Clipper he’s restoring, I found nothing for my President) then checked out the LeMay Museum.
I want a new wallpaper image muh fawnceh new head unit. I want the classic bumpy letter Suburban badge slightly subdued over a plain black background.
So I was going to get the Sony XAV-AX100, and when I left home this morning I told the Mrs to order one I had found on Bestbuy.com on an open box special marked down to $300. After dropping the kiddo off at daycare I thought I’d stop by Fry’s electronics to peruse their selection of kitchen appliances. While I was…
Aaaaaaand I'm back to not being able to upload images on mobile. Good.
Much has been done, much remains to do
I’m in the market for a double DIN head unit with inputs for a backup camera for my Suburban. I’m tired of dinging my bumper when hooking up to trailers. I also use an iPhone and listen to lots of podcasts, so CarPlay seems like a logical idea. I like the idea of a volume knob versus buttons, I hate the shitty shiny…
New dryer cord: $21. Receptacle to make the one I already have work: $6.
First time I’ve ever hired movers out of the 16 times I’ve moved in my adult life.
Plus, I’ve owned it for about a year now. I’ll probably do a recap of the ownership experience in a few days if anyone cares.
Is biglier than it looks.
I bought a new phone yesterday... Nothing fancy, just an iPhone SE to replace my iPhone 5 that still somehow worked.
I scored a set of ‘05 Yukon XL Denali seats this week! the second row buckets came from a Craigslister in Seattle, which worked our perfectly since I had to make a trip to Tacoma on Tuesday. The fronts came from a junkyard near my work. MonkeyB ST gave me some guidance on cleaning up the leather with easily obtained…
I seent this pretty F-100 on in the parking lot (I-205) a few days ago. Enjoy a terrible picture of it.
I snagged a decent set of Yukon Denali seats for my Suburban, and since the old seats were f’d, I didn’t really take care of the leather like I should. These are nice enough for me to care. How do I clean them and get rid of the shiny-ness without ruining the finish? What kind of conditioner should I use? I’ve tried…
