Someone has created an account mimicking my Kinja name, except with a smart apostrophe. This is their only comment, replying to me.
Wednesday is the first day of spring, and coincides with the end of freezing weather in the forecast and the start of a dry spell. This must mean it’s time to start removing Jeep parts!
This Scrambler on BaT is my LJ’s spiritual ancestor. A longer wheelbase that retains the classic 2-door Jeep look, yellow because all the best Jeeps are, and the classic Dana 300 transfer case make this a verrrrry interesting auction.
Fairly confident I’ve never seen one of these in person. Shame most modern cars lack this kind of character. Looks rather European to me. $6500 on CL.
I’ve never cared enough about German cars to, well, care. Every time I see the Mercedes-Benz logo I have to mentally picture BMW’s logo in order to remember which manufacturer it belongs to. (Yes, I’m really that oblivious.)
I first posed this a few months ago but I’m still perplexed and keep seeing this so I’ll ask again. Does anyone know whether some cars will compensate for a failed running light by turning on the brake light instead?
Haven’t actually watched this yet but looks interesting.
Were I to take a poll, Die Hard would be at the top of many/most people’s list of best Bruce Willis action flicks. Unbreakable isn’t really an action movie, but it certainly would deserve to be considered. My choice is neither of those.
Want to rent a Vancouver mansion for dirt cheap?
And, damn, he’s got a winner. Anyone need a clean, manual, 2-door XJ?
I’ve tried not to inflict more boring stories of chasing people with failed brake/tail lights, but today saw an odd coincidence, so what the heck. You’re always free to ignore these, and I’ve been quiet for a while, so deal with it.
I know a fair number of you don’t pay attention to Jalopnik, so I wanted to share this interesting tidbit. I had no idea there was a tracking site watching the progress of the first Tesla in space:
I’ve been thinking about designing a personal business card, but this popped up on Twitter and now I know I need to wait a long while before trying, so I don’t try to compare mine to this work of art.
I would expect the union to say they negotiated a strong deal, but at least FP content should keep coming.
I don’t know much, nor honestly care much, about German cars...but this blue gets a big thumbs up.
I’m a bit of a broken record, so it should be no surprise my first post was about Jeeps. I haven’t reached my first Oppo anniversary yet, so I suspect most people reading this already read that one too.
Just spotted these in a parking lot outside a small town auto repair shop.
It’s a shame we can no longer share comments directly. On FP there’s a short post about Mitsubishi, and someone posted a metric shit-ton of Delica photos that make me rethink my priorities in used car searches.
Currently Australia, Italy, and France. I can’t evaluate any of the above, but looks like a cool site. Updated with link to discussion.
