Oh wait... I live in Portland.
You’re the smartest bunch of people on the internet, so if you can’t help me I’m doomed.
I’ve heard people occasionally get nails in their tires. It’s an easy and cheap fix, and they’re back on the road. I wouldn’t know anything about that, as any time I ever have air loss from a tire, it’s catastrophic and expensive. Seriously... Any time I’ve ever bought a car with good tires, one inevitably gets…
Because other than being a wildly practical small car, I don’t get the attraction. Yet, here we are 3% of the way through 2019 and it’s already practically the Oppo car of the year for 2019. Is it some sort of automotive best-kept-secret, or just a Versa that doesn’t suck?
Here’s a reminder that Libya still has eight C-130s sitting in the back forty at the Lockheed plant in Marietta, GA. Built in 1972, and never delivered because of political tensions between the U.S. and Libya.
Loewy, Schmoewy... I know how to make this car look TOTALLY RAD *snorts cocaine*.
Facespace shows me this photo on this day every year. It’s one of my favorite places on Earth- a remote point North of Navarre, FL only accessible by a capable 4x4 or boat. It’s miles from anything and completely serene. It also features my faithful old Jeep.
Took the kiddo up Mt. Hood to build a snowman and give Mama and baby some peace and quiet.
Since I’ve been working my butt off for months and college classes are starting back up on Monday, the Mrs. gave me a free pass to do whatever I wanted to do this afternoon. A couple hours at the Tillamook State Forest OHV area (a.k.a. Brown’s Camp) was just what the doctor ordered.
They’re needlessly complicated, expensive to repair, and they provide about half of the light of a halogen headlight. I’ve never driven a vehicle with HIDs and had a thought other than “these headlights are shit”, and I’ve never had a car with HIDs drive towards me and had a thought other than “those are like a laser…
With the rest of the house now livable, it’s finally time to give the garage a little love.
We have here a beautiful 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk, complete with its original Paxton supercharged 289. This car would easily be worth $22,500, especially in this nice of condition.
We have here a 2002 S60 T5 with ONLY 202,000 miles. It features Flowmaster intake pipes, IPD fuses, a 3.1 pound turbo (not that stock 2.3 pound junk!), JDM Enthusiast Equipment (whatever the hell that means) and “artwork”. As with most automatic ‘00-’02 Volvos, it needs transmission work (super cheap and easy, of…
My favorite gifts: some tasty hooch, a hub puller, and new fog lights to replace the borked ones on my Suburban!
One turrible photo of a seckseh Swede.
That time I over loaded the snot out of a single axle 6x12 cargo trailer, hooked it up to my ‘05 MRT with bald rear tires, and dragged it from Florida to Oregon through torrential rains, gale force winds, and a freak blizzard. I even had to remove the rear bumper cover to make the weight distributing hitch I had to…
It’s been a few weeks and I’ve put about 1,500 miles on commuting, so how do I like it?
