Hard to say. The reason you don’t overfill an engine is that the level gets up the crank at some point and the crank spins it to foam. But I doubt you would get to that level with just +1 L. So how far are you planning to drive before you drain it back? Read more

Precarious? In India and Southeast Asia that’s just the daily commute.

It’s funny... Almost everybody I know who is pro-gun-rights, including myself, feels this way when you talk about it. But it plays out so differently and at the extremes in the political realm.

There has to be a higher barrier to entry to getting a gun than filling out a 4473 and being on your way. Even something as simple as an online course and test of basic “dos and don’ts” might go a long way in limiting some of this egregious behavior. Read more

I wasn’t aware of the name change, but I gotta say I’m happy you were brave enough to change it. I’d never thought of the ramifications of the expression “crack pipe” (not a native english speaker), but I do agree it’s negatively charged and references a very sensitive, racially charged subject. I can see the backlash Read more

It’s a difficult line to walk when it takes racism to recognize racism. One must equate crack with a particular demographic to understand how it can be equated to same. Read more

I suspect this would make someone’s mechanic, whose behind on his boat payments, very happy.

Seriously! Folks are scared of the world. You’d think that the population of the U.S. must have decreased by hundreds of millions from the advent of the automobile until the advent of airbags the way folks react. Read more

A cracked block is the evil we do not name. I really, really hope it’s the heads.

GM X-frame with an inline six. Rust was acceptable, that design’s crashworthiness never was and the way the I6 mounts in the rails makes it even worse for an offset.

It wasn’t a rustbucket, but it also wasn’t representative of anything but other GM X-frame cars of the era.

Motorcyclist here. I’m used to having even less safety equipment on my bikes. For cars, especially daily drivers? I’ll take whatever I can get. I’m olde, so I’m attracted to this kind of car, but in real life, I’d like to have more protection than they offer.

Well done, and what a beauty! My only comment is I hope she has good A/C for those brutal DC summers. Just got back from there yesterday, my balls are still dripping wet, LOL. Read more

I used to daily drive a 1967 Plymouth Fury III. A land behemoth like that gives you a great appreciate for braking distance and maneuverability. I’ve carried the lessons from that the rest of my life - every other driver is an idiot trying to kill me, so I drive accordingly. Read more

Another alternative would be to go the Washington Football Team route and call it “Nice Price or The Answer Indicating Disagreement with the Value Proposition of this Vehicle”

My dad daily drove his matching numbers 350ci 1971 Corvette in Montreal from Spring to Fall because he couldn’t decide on what to buy as a daily driver. This was about 15 years ago. No power steering, no power brakes. The more he drove it, the harder it was to decide on a new car. He still has it and still drives it Read more

I think the statistics are that people are generally enduring longer (duration, at least) and more congested commutes now than they were 20 years ago, let alone 30-40 years ago. There are a lot of people who are not inclined to work the clutch for 45 minutes of stop and go traffic twice a day. Read more
