I took my 2004 Mazda 6 wagon in to the dealer for an airbag recall. They went through the car thoroughly and presented me with a $4585 quote for fixing all the miscellaneous quirks.
Tragedy has struck close to home. Yes my 4 year old son has attached a hood scoop to his La Ferrari.
My 4 year old son was sitting in the back of my car while we were waiting at a light:
Here is something to think about next time you see a snide remark about senior citizens or their driving abilities. William Henry Downing (my 3rd great grandfather) was born in 1821 and died in 1922. He would be almost 200 years old if he was alive. Below is an article that was written about him shortly after…
I got pulled over for having no front plate. Fortunately it was only a warning. The previous owner attached the front plate at a slight angle with 3 mismatched screws. It was driving me nuts and I had to take it off. Now I am not sure what to do.

I have a upcoming business trip from Austin to Houston and back and was thinking of renting a car for my boss and I. Hertz has some cool options available. Which would you pick and why?
It's pretty cold in Austin this morning (22 F) but we have a different kind of snow - it's called cedar. On Sunday I was bragging about my clean car; now it is covered in a disgusting blanket of pollen / tree sperm. My head is aching and I can barely think.
... the Plant Handling Package.
... and got it dirty again (just a little)!
I was at a vintage toy store today; I totally forgot that Jazz was a Martini liveried Porsche! And not a Pontiac Solstice that got killed by Megatron in the first movie. Now that Pontiac is defunct maybe they can bring him back.
