I once rented a GMC C6500 U-Haul (The largest they had at the time). 7.4L Vortec V8 and a 5-speed stick. That clutch was so heavy I thought my leg was going to break when I was done with it. It was a mid-90s truck that was long past its prime, and the girl who handed me the keys at the U-Haul lot even said “I wouldn’t… Read more
Like Nissan does with their “Midnight Edition”. Although I think Nissan charges you like $2k for it.
A 1980 Moto-Ski Mirage Special that was bought new in ‘80, then parked in a barn in ‘82 out in Elmvale, Ontario and forgotten about. Guy said he wanted $300 for the sled, and that the motor turned over. I drove up there, paid the $300, brought it home and spent 3 months trying to get it running and riding. Along the…
Round 12 of the 1998 BTCC season, at Donington Park. It’s a shame all the videos of the event have been taken down from YouTube because it was one hell of an entertaining race from start to finish. There was even a video of Mansell, Cleland and Leslie all smiling and joking around about it after the finish.
This GM Dealership wasn’t Addison, was it?
Cobra because of it’s beautiful noise, and I am a sucker for how nice a car sounds. Also I enjoy cars that are raw, and scary.
The 2017 GMC Terrain I have as a rental right now has a touchscreen that takes 7-10 business days to respond to my input. Granted it does have physical buttons you can use to control it, but they’re poorly placed and almost recessed within the console, so they’re hard to find while you’re driving.
I had a 1998 Dodge Neon in high school (about 11 years ago). Yeah it was cheap, yeah it was falling apart, but it was tough as nails and reliable as hell. Admittedly I beat the ever living crap out of that car but it never let me down. I finally sold it for $500 at 400,000kms. I hold a soft spot in my heart for the…
Haha it’s weird little things like that on cars that I find give them some character. I’m just as guilty for having a bulky set of keys. I can only imagine how much I’ve added to the previous owners wear in that respect.
The area on the center console you say looks like it’s been melted seems to be inline with the marks on the panel beside it. That wouldn’t happen to be right below the ignition would it? My 2013 Frontier has similar wear patters in a 180 degree semi circle below the ignition from the previous owners keys swinging… Read more
