Hey, you do you, my friend. And, if doing you means wearing comfortable attire, then wear it with pride and drive whatever the hell you want. Rock on!

To paraphrase the old Bard, I came here to give proper sendoff to the Flex, not necessarily to praise it. However, even as someone who appreciates the wagon aesthetic, I do think that the Flex has more going for it than just being the last man standing.

That’s a Foxstang. I’d wager with some sort of 5.0 under the hood.

Watch the YouTube channel Hackaweek about rebuilding/modding old Hondas. It will make you want an old bike even more!

I don’t know what else one might do with a Boxster or Cayman with an engine that has packed it in. I think that while a junkyard 911 mill is still going to set you back a hefty sum, it’s likely not going to be that much more than a replacement 2.5. There’s more stuff here, but it’s hard to say how old all the mods are Read more

So, a coprolite is a piece of fossilized feces, literally stone-cold shit, and yet paleontologists get frothy excited when one is found. It’s not how foul a thing is, it’s how good an indicator of an era or experience it is. The Trabant is possibly the worst car ever foisted on the car-buying public, and yet today Read more

I’ve even seen people use this stuff right over the existing patina as some sort of protector. Crazy easy to use too.

This is eff’d up. You’d think a state known for their peaches would also have a streamlined way to deal with automotive lemons. And yes, that was a stretch for a pun.

I, on the other hand, want to make the bears work for their late night meals and hence appreciate the loft-like sleeping perch/buffet table.
