I am a car guy, we here are car people, most of us, and included in that ecosystem are super/hyper car fans, wagon boyz, Jeep, off road and overland enthusiasts and any number of other car/truck/bike and internal combustion/electric and even solar powered vehicle fans.

It’s been a few months since I carried on my OPPOolitics thread and there were some very solid reasons for the wait. First, some of you weren’t waiting and didn’t care anyways!

I’m sick right now and there is nothing worse than having to get out of bed and try and operate a FUCKING PRINTER, and get it to do simple things for you so you can just get on with your day or go back to bed.
That thing looks cool, doesn’t it? The VW-NGH.
The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse, in biblical terms, refers to: Death. Famine. War. Conquest. Or as the rest of us call it, the American experience!
