Gravel road driving cons: nicks in the paint. A paint pen and half an hour should fix it. Although I realized my tires are not great for gravel.
And thus begins the trend of obnoxiously parking by performance cars and acting like I belong with a Civic Type-R or a GT500.
Small towns are always great for car spotting.
Hot take: after driving a CVPI, I can see some of the appeal of them as a fleet vehicle, but holy man do I not understand the praise as a personal vehicle, minus them being damn near unkillable. I'm happy I didn't buy one when I thought it was a good idea.
Behold, the Jolly Rancher. My first car.
Looked absurd and cool. I love it.
Seen in downtown Stoon, prior to doing a test drive of a different car. It’s minorly embarassing to stall a car on a test drive, but considering I last drove stick two years ago, that’s not bad.
The transmission is weird at slow speeds. And kilometres per litre is a weird way to measure fuel economy. Any questions?
What do I need to know about the 2015 Fiesta ST? Because I am 60% certain I’m going to look at this one on Friday. Any pointers? Am I nuts?
A 2013 WRX STi with 108k kilometres for $26.8k CAD, or a new 2018 Elantra GT Sport for roughly the same price? One has a warranty and a lower finance rate, one is a rally car with all wheel drive. It’s getting to the point where I’m going to know where I’m moving to, so it looks like the car purchase is going to be…
So there you have it. I can get one once there are a) kids and b) leather seats.
Why can’t this happen when I drive my actual car?
Ask me anything. Here’s a quick breakdown on the 2018 Buick Encore I have as a rental:
Every number sucks. I have four months to figure out what I’m going to do. My wallet disagrees with every opinion. How’s Oppo doing? I’ve got a few hours to kill.
Well, eight months after arriving in Saskatoon, looks like it’s time for me to leave. I’m packing up today and moving tomorrow. Which is great, because it’s for reasons I’ve spent the last eight years working towards.
Because that seems like a heck of a lot of money for a dash cam.
“Yeah, you could get one.”
I think the Dart looked good, but had the unfortunate nature of being an FCA product. The prices are starting to drop, but I don’t know if it’ll ever drop to a point where it’s considered a nice price.
