I managed a shop that had the fleet service account for the post office (it was directly nextdoor), and let me tell you... they’re absolute garbage. The chassis is a modified early 80s S10 Blazer, the front was chopped and narrowed to give it a better turning radius. Front suspension is S10 blazer as well, so I Read more

CHMSL - pronounced “Chim-sol”, it’s the proper name for a 3rd brake light. Stands for center high mounted stop light. My mother was an exec at a big 3 auto manufacturer (long since retired), she used this several times before I finally asked WTF she was talking about.

First of all a vehicle isn’t an investment it’s a depreciating asset (which I think is what you were trying to get at) but you’re looking at this far to 1 dimensionally. If you can finance that purchase and retain capital for use in other investments that will yield a higher return it’s a win-win. Read more

Charger Hellcat owner here... I’ve said the line “look at the car I drive... if you think I’m packing heat downstairs you’re sorely mistaken.” But dammit if I don’t enjoy the hell out of my vehicular penial extension. You can also be damn sure I’ll be replacing my 2014 Charger R/T AWD daily/winter car with a Trackhawk. Read more

Unfortunately I have a family emergency and I’ll be over in GR tomorrow. I’m really sorry it’s so last minute, if anything changes I’ll post here.

There’s also a 300C Touring SRT8 as well as SRT-line. You could get a 300C Touring with the SRT body accoutrement AND a diesel. I’ve often thought about importing one, but they’re fairly hard to find. I’ve found a few around in the past, but at current all my 10 min of Googling came up with was a standard 300C SRT Read more

I used to be pretty heavily involved in tires, I was a national sales trainer for a large chain of full service repair shops, and before that I worked at the same chain as a service manager. Not to toot my own horn, just wanted to lay out some credentials... Read more

Count me in, I’ll bring the grilling tools, charcoal, and lighter fluid. I need to double, triple check that I’m not supposed to be out of town that weekend, but I’m 90% sure it’s a different weekend. I can verify my travel schedule on Monday. I’ll also bring a cooler with some Miller Lite and water (aren’t those Read more

I know I’m a bit late to the party, just now saw this post... Detroit Wheel and Tire does fantastic work. I’ve had one set of wheels refinished/painted on my 69 Camaro, and I exchanged the OEM rims on my 2014 Charger R/T for the same wheels but in satin black. I’ve toured their facility and it’s top-notch, I don’t Read more

Also excluded from the original report was gender and age... they gave the information they had on-hand. I’d rather they omit something in leiu of providing misinformation. It’s far too easy too look back on a rapidly developing story like this and find things that could’ve been handled differently. Hindsight is 20/20.

It’s pretty nice, I bought a smaller unit (600 square ft.), I’m installing a lift and I’m looking forward to having a place to store and work on my cars. The 6 hours of track time per in-season week is a big plus. I drove the track a few times last year, it’s a great track. They also have pretty stellar Read more

I’m in for sure. I don’t post on Oppo (or Jalopnik) much anymore, but my credentials are in order. I rode the ferris wheel at Le Mans this past year with a fellow Oppo and his fiance (and swiped them some water, and much needed coffee from the hospitality tent I was a guest in...), if I could remember his username for Read more

I teach a similar class put on by the Michigan State Police, easily my favorite part is scaring the bejesus out of them on the skid pad... and teaching them proper vehicle handling etc... but seriously, not many people know what it’s like to be in a car that is 100% out of control and I think it’s something very Read more

Seriously? Why?!? I was astounded that the Uconnect (FCA Vehicles, QNX designed) in-car wifi service (that cost $35 per month, which is silly) is painfully slow 3G... i know in the case of Uconnect it runs on, correct me if I’m wrong, a Linux base and QNX built the system off that... how hard would it be to implement Read more

I second the Dodge Charger... as a big guy at 6'2" and 250 I love mine (I’ve got the last of the V8 AWDs cause I’m a yank and have winter to deal with), it fits me and 3 additional big friends without issue.

Speaking from first hand experience, if he’s in as bad of shape as I’m lead to believe there’s a very good chance his family also feels that he’s essentially dead. In my case it was my uncle who suffered from early onset alzheimer’s (I forget the true medical name, but that describes it best), he was in his 50s and he Read more
