Figured this would make a decent Sunday night discussion topic. What’s your favorite little detail on your car? Maybe it’s a design detail, a little badge, an interior feature, just something small you like about your car.
Rotated the tires on my dad’s truck, plus checking the fluids because the water and power steering pumps are seeping and I’m going to start driving it for a while. 35 inch mud tires are heaaavy, especially when you’re doing it on jackstands in the garage.
I just realized its been over a year since the Safari drove away and never came back. I wonder if the years of neglected maintenance after my mom got the Vue ever caught up to it.
It makes bumps look like jumps.
The horns on late model Grand Prixs share a connector and a bracket. So I now have two sets of Grand Prix horns behind my front bumper aimed at the ground. It echos. Shoddy Instagram video below filler image.
I’m armed with a socket set and list of cars that use the same connector as my truck. Top priority goes to the Buicks, since they always seem to have louder horns than anything else. The Cobalt is a last resort since they have more wimpy horns.
I was happy to oblige after we washed it.
Now, it might be the fact that I got to cruise around with the roof down in beautiful 75 degree weather when I did the pre-delivery inspection on it, but it’s a pretty nice little drop top. I feel like if it was a little cheaper (or at least offered cheaper trims) we’d sell a whole lot more.
Huh, maybe I should’ve aimed my horns slightly more downward to allow water to drain better... or not spray water between the gap between the headlights and bumper while washing the truck?
Outside enjoying the very un-August like weather, waiting to do mine, AMA.
But my truck looked really nice parked in the yard at my uncle’s new house (on 3 acres, beautiful house, pool, and it’s in the middle of nowhere.)
Mostly sparked by MotorWeek posting a retro review of a 300ZX Turbo.
No problem found with exhaust system. Would instead advise customer to stop driving vehicle immediately.
I’ve now seen more imported GTRs at work than at Cars and Coffee.
While I had my truck on the lift at work replacing my dead TPMS sensor after 4 months, I decided to remove the stupid front air dam these trucks get from the factory.
The headlights are noticeably whiter than before, which of course I don’t have a before picture of.
They aren’t perfect, but they look a lot better than what I started with. Plus it was a DIY job, I wasn’t expecting perfection.
Considering it involved driving a Cadillac V they only made 2,500 examples of.
On public roads, with other people.
