The Mirthmobile was a Pacer.
Counterpoint: I don’t want people having easy view of what’s in my car. Also, tinting the glass means the greenhouse (as you put it) feels less like a real greenhouse after the sun has been beating down on my car all day.
isn’t this what we want?
I converted my Trans Am from automatic to manual last month with the help of K-Roll. Swapped out a 700R4 that was missing two of the four gears for a Borg Warner Super T-10 that came out of a ‘79 Trans Am. Bought the full manual swap parts from that ‘79 parts car, everything from the manual specific radiator to clutch…
This generation of Celica are fairly fun with the manual even though they are under powered, but not with the automatic. If you are ok with a nostalgic slug then, fine. The auto makes this a no-go for me.
I’ve also run in to the issue that when I had time I didn’t have money and when I had money I didn’t have time. It’s maddening.
I hate these companies more than anybody I know for clogging the sidewalks and turning a blind eye to the behavior of their riders, but even I draw the line at cut brakes (and yeeting them into bodies of water with aquatic life, for that matter—these garbage-piles are pretty toxic!).
You get insurance for what you are trying to do. Motocross is insured for motocross incidents and injuries, autocross is insured for autorcross accidents. You have a car accident on a motocross track and their insurance is going to tell them to get fucked. Same with crashing a bike at an autocross.
The rules exist because of lawyers. It’s hard enough to find a venue and insurance so when you are able to get an event going the restrictions put in place by the insurance and venue are the law. You let a vehicle with a high enough COG to pose a rollover risk run and it ends up rolling, you get shut down.
Those are clearly speed holes. And you call yourself an auto-journalist, pfft!
Yeah, $50 a bag. Makes total sense.
The Broken Windows theory applies to cars too. Once you let little things go, things go downhill at an very quick pace. If you stay on top of repairs and maintenance, you end up with a car with 200k miles that looks brand new. If you neglect small stuff and let it snowball, soon you are selling your car for scrap with…
Absolutely, it did. I had an Accord listed at $4000, sure it wouldn’t make that but was looking for $3000. A few potential buyers showed up to kick tires. One was pretty keenly honest, said he’d just come out from a few weeks in the jail and was looking to turn things around, told me he would need to make payments.…
Whatever. Eating in cars is not civilized.
Like some of the other commenters, I’m not great with eating while driving. (Drinking, okay. But crumbs and greasy hands and the awkwardness...) So I stop once in a while to take a break. If you pass through Maryland, stop at a Royal Farms gas station/convenience store, and order a fried chicken club sandwich. Some of…
A cup of iced coffee i guess. I dont eat in the car, like a savage.
Stephen Colbert and John Oliver are the only people worth watching on television at all.
Neither of The Two Jimmies are funny, talented, or watchable. I can’t stand Kimmel or Fallon. They’re both an embarrassment to watch. And James Corden is almost as bad.
For me, being in the U.K. Not a chance, Crack Pipe.
