Wow, so they really *are* built like Soviet cars. We should start called him Comrade Musk.
Sure, we might have scorpions and snakes in Arizona, but at least we don’t have ticks?
Every red-eye flight I’ve taken recently has been both expensive *and* completely packed, so your mileage may vary in regards to that.
The unfortunate side effect of all these options is that it makes it quite difficult to find a Porsche with your preferred specs in the used market.
I mean, I’ve owned plenty of BMW’s with tire sizes in the 35/40 profile range, like 245/40/18 + 275/35/18 and I’ve never had tire or wheel damage from it. Granted, I live in the southwest where the roads are generally good and potholes are largely a myth. If I lived somewhere like NYC or Chicago I’d probably go back…
Serious question— why do you still live in Michigan? You’re not tied to any particular area geographically since you work from home. You could easily move somewhere nicer where the winters aren’t half of the year, where rust is just a concept rather than a reality, where decent cars can be bought cheaply without…
Looks awful, honestly. I’m not a fan of flat-bottom steering wheels at all... they’re completely pointless on a street car where you can adjust the steering wheel. Make steering wheels round again!
Yep. My grandma’s town is Pyatigorsk, which is not super far from Georgia and Armenia. Lots of JDM cars there too. I think a big part of it is that Russian domestic cars are pretty crap, and European/American cars are still pretty expensive, whereas used JDM cars are brought in for pennies on the dollar (or ruble, in…
I feel like I get a lot of those features in a Range Rover of the same era. My 2003 Range Rover was $800 and I’ve had to put maybe a few hundred dollars in parts into it whilst abusing it regularly with heavy towing, triple digit highway runs, and off-roading, all in 115ºF weather in Phoenix. I’ve got the air…
It is a little awkward indeed
So it’s basically a modern Gameboy/DS? Talk about reinventing video gaming, haha
Japanese RHD cars have made it further than St. Petersburg, they’re all over Ukraine too. The really funny thing is when there’s a Japanese bus with the door on the wrong side— passengers get unloaded into traffic. I experienced that a few times in Odessa, it was quite funny.
And here I was about to get excited for the return of giant, naturally-aspirated V8's with manual transmissions. But alas, it was not meant to be. *goes back to browsing for V8 hoopties on Craigslist*
By Craigslist standards, CP. But on BaT? That’s a whole different story. For the right person, $40k could seem very reasonable. Especially given how well E30's have been selling on there in general, with bone stock ones going for $15k+.
I’ve always liked the hood strut setup that BMW’s been using for the last few decades. The hood struts are fairly compact so they don’t get in the way, and they make lifting the heavy hoods fairly easy. Yes, they do wear out after about 20 years, but they’re only like $20 a pop to replace.
So much for draining the swamp...
Great, so now you have to worry about junkies stealing all the copper every time you park it outside... /s
I mean, I don’t care about EV’s at all, but I guess I’m not most people.
As much as I’d love to get off Facebook, it’s the best place for cheap deals on cars nowadays. Craigslist used to be that place, but then they started charging $5 to list a car so a lot of the cheaper cars disappeared from there.
Expert level: do all of this but with a manual transmission
