Window tint laws in NY have always said no tint on driver’s or passenger’s front windows, but this was a seldom enforced law. Every vehicle I’ve had since 1993 has had limo tint all they way around (except windshield), and I’ve only ever gotten two tickets for it, and both times the tint probably wasn’t the reason I…
...get out from under the hood!
I was on my way home last night and the mrs asked me to stop at the grocery store. From where i was at the time, I figured there had to be a better route than driving all the way into town then back out to the store (i was basically parallel to the store as the crow flies), so I googled it on my phone and had my…
What’s the strangest vehicle in your town? Does your neighbor have an IROC Camaro on a one-ton 4x4 frame? Does the guy two roads over DD an old milk truck?
what the f*ck is this sh*t?
relative to how long they’ve had their driver’s license?
Oppos, help me find the cheapest C5 Corvette in the US! I’ve decided to buy a dedicated track toy and I’m going with a ‘vette.
My new Launch scan tool is on my front porch, according to my Amazon app. My old OTC scanner is only updated through 2008 and Amazon was nice enough to email me and tell me the Launch was on sale for 20% off the other day. Can’t say no to that deal.
My wife has given me the green light to build my dream workshop. I currently do all my wrenching in a 3 bay garage, which is nice but not really big enough to do a major project and still have room for the daily drivers. So next spring the 40x60 pole barn goes up behind the house. To put that in perspective, the shop…
People do not know how to be a good passenger. I wonder many accidents have been caused by passengers. Here is a list of things passengers do in my vehicles that drive me nuts.
It’s a 2016 IS350 F-sport. Due for its 5k, which pretty much is just a gallon of washer fluid and a free car wash. Oil is synthetic and not due until 10k, and it has staggered tires so no rotation needed. But it’s free and it looks good for the warranty so what the hell.
...for a track day car. LT1 6 speed. OPPO, convince me it’s a good idea or talk me out of it.
...if you had a $30K budget? Rules are: must be a model not sold in the US (euro spec versions of USDM vehicles disqualified- sorry e36 M3), must be older than 25 years so it can be legally registered and driven, and must be LEFT hand drive, because some of us go to ATMs and drive-thru windows every now and then.
...that isn’t an M3? any model year, must have been comparable in price when new. US market only!
This happened a couple years ago but someone just posted an Infiniti rental car so it reminded me of this story...

Just got the email saying “Out for delivery”. Anyone else love the sound of a UPS truck?
Dinner conversation the other night somehow got on the topic of my 78 Trans Am i had in high school. I told my wife i wished i still had it, to which she said “so buy another one.” Um, OK, twist my arm. So commence the hunt! Criteria are: must be V8/ 4 spd. Don’t care what V8 as it will probably get an LS swap. But…
So i’ve gotten to the point where if i want to make my street car a better track car, it will start to become a poor street car. I do not want to remove interior, add stiffer bushings, modify fenders for wider tires, etc. So it is time to buy a car purely to thrash at race tracks.
Last friday night I picked up my new truck. Yesterday i got the survey in my email, so I went online and completed it. While I was generally pleased and chose to do business with them because of good experiences in the past, they didn’t do everything perfectly and my scores reflected it. In fact, the exact truck i…
