I believe that Hotblack Desiato may be looking for a new ride, as his old one was stolen at the Restaurant at the End of the universe.

Let me offer the perspective of someone who went there two years ago, about a week after the first article was published, in the effort to buy his grey 16v scirocco:

I called him wednesday that week to ask if he still had it. he said he did. we negotiated a price of $800 and i told him I would be there between 1-2pm on Read more

And the unexpected thing is that the two pistons aren’t quite in phase with each other.

This movie feels like a weird time displaced artifact of 1995, complete with a manic Jim Carrey, the completely out of place use of Gangsta’s Paradise, and the “THE VIDEO GAME GETS REAL” vibe of the whole thing.

It’s like from an alternate reality where the Super Mario Bros. movie was a mega hit and Sega, desperate to Read more

I also enjoy doing my own oil changes, although I use ramps (no lift).

There are things I will happily do on my car, but oil changes are not one of them. Not this car, anyway. It’s 100% worth it to have someone else clean up the mess.
