Very meta. It’s probably a hipster who drives it ironically
I’m a big fan of cars’n’coffee. Car people of all persuasions and biases can mingle, enjoy our hobby, and then go on about our day. This is in contrast to the old school car shows; you know, bring your lawn chair and sit by your car in the heat all day, yell at that kid to keep his grimy hands off your upholstery, and …
Cadillac was so interested in gaining social media exposure that they sold a base Escalade to Enterprise, probably at cost, so that I could rent it with airline miles and go to Yellowstone National Park!
We survived our tour of Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Have some road photos to celebrate with me!
Just leave me here in the grass, watching the birds and getting the occasional tickle from a field mouse crawling my nether parts. Bonus cafe sign for your time:
Cadillac wanted me to review the 2018 Escalade so much they sold a base model to Enterprise, waited until I had enough airline miles to rent one, and then upgraded me because the Suburban wasn’t available. So far it has carried me to Missoula via a McDonald’s and a Holiday Inn. Full review to follow!
I was invited to a work function at the local country club. Between the fat-cat Jags, Range Rovers and Mercedes emBezzlements I found this sweet 60’s Chebby pickup. And a Jetta, cause the staff have to park somewhere I guess.
Hour Rule, and What’s-Oppo-Drinking?
I have finished my through review of the annual Car d’Alene Car Show and Cruise in Coeur d’Alene. I’m not a judge or anything, but thought the participants would appreciate my unsolicited opinions.
MM54 and Long_Voyager were right and have been awarded one “I told you so” point.
If you have watched MASH, you know what this is. If you haven’t watched it, you should.
I have not met the driver of this truck, but here is what we know about him (or her):
Who needs all that Fancy Japanese bullet train tech? Just give the contract to Boeing. Or maybe recycle all those decrepit MD-80’s American was flying up until just recently. Jet trains!
The flying saucer spare tire cover on the WifeJ Cruiser is in sad shape. I don’t have the air compressor for a real paint gun, and don’t want to buy a new replacement from the stealership. I’m planning on prepping it and using this Plasti-dip. I hope it will match the black plastic bumper and black roof rack. Maybe…
I have a grand plan to drive to Denali next summer (2020). Actually “plan” isn’t accurate, as that implies thought beyond “I’m totally going to probably do that”. Since I don’t own the slammed Outback pictured above, I need to choose a vehicle to coerce into my delusional adventure. I’m a little hesitant to take the…
Good thing my wife bought this lifted FJ. The parking lot at the trail head had some formidable potholes, and it was easier to find in the Costco parking lot.
My wife has been hating her Crosstour since I bought it a few years ago. Abbreviated version of the story- we were moving back from overseas and I picked it out on CarMax so she’d have a car on arrival- and like some of my other gifts, it was not a hit. Live and learn. At least she kept the engagement ring- so far.…
Quote from an article about local car thieves targeting Subarus: “whose 2000 Subaru Impreza went missing Feb. 7 out of the Vapor Lounge parking lot near the Shadle Walmart.”
I took my youngest son to the local manufacturer auto show this weekend. Lots of drooling over the M2, RS5, Cayman GTS, and an R8. Nissan had the prime position by the entrance, and you know what they had?
This is even the ultra-desirable V8 model.
