CP! A friend just picked up a Rubicon TJ - it might even be a 2005 - for I believe something around $1,500. It’s no beauty like this one, but it runs, is safe, everything works, it’s registered and inspected and he’s been off-roading with it a bit already, too. I believe his teenage son is currently driving it.

I’ve driven one of these, and sure it was slow but it basically defines classy. Great choice, keep it up and it’ll keep running, it sure as shit won’t depreciate.

I’ve gotten to drive there a few times, with Fiestas, Audis, Subarus, and my own BMW wagon. All good fun. I kinda felt like that about my wagons, too, especially the first one. I beat on that car pretty hard, and it never let me down. I was a lot nicer to my blue one, it was nicer to start with too.

I’d love either one but the V70R would actually fit all my needs right now. It’s perfect in every way, except needing a third car for when the R is in the shop.

A friend had a V70R manual and I definitely appreciated it. But a) it was lowered, so, strike one, and b) he thrashed it so I didn’t want to buy it anyway and then c) he crashed it.

Team O’Neil had a fleet of them that they got any way they could, then they thrashed them for YEARS as teaching tools. Could still be running some of them, although there’s a ready supply of beater Subarus and now E46 bmw’s both RWD and AWD, so they may have finally retired the Audis. I drove one as a student there, Read more

I got very, very good at backing up trailers when I worked at a marina. Very satisfying to do it well in front of others who are struggling with it, e.g. at every public boat ramp ever. Even now, I can look at a space and see the movements required to make certain moves with a truck and trailer, before even starting Read more

What blew my mind was one day seeing a chain with like 4-5 padlocks at the end making up the last bit of chain all together. I was like “why would you do that” until someone said “that’s so multiple different people can open it without having the same key” which, while I feel like you could just buy a padlock and get Read more

We have a bunch, and call them Take-apart-inators because Phineas and Ferb... every invention of the villain of that show is some kind of “-inator” it’s pretty funny actually, some good jokes that the kids don’t pick up on.

lol I think I’d buy a car with SCCA stickers before one that said “never raced in swear to God also new clutch and transmission”

Could be, I honestly have no idea! The 4 cylinder is fine. FINE I tell you! It is a Honda, so it will rev happily if you want to push it.
