I never considered this angle, but it makes a lot of sense.

My father-in-law is a little too aware of the trim level - if anyone refers to his car as an Accord he gets mad and insists that it is a “Honda Sport.” <suitable emoji>

Leather < Fabric. Admittedly that doesn’t change any of the facts, just saying.

Plymouth Volaré... 1977 wasn’t exactly a high water mark for cars.

It makes no sense, but I can see the Midnight Purple being more valuable even though it is objectively less car. GranTurismo Effect and all that.

Weighing harder classes makes sense; an A in AP History ought to count for more than an A in P.E. But that being said, couldn’t they have made that rule change beforehand? And made it public? Just badly handled all along.

shhh, Biden is much more likely to get this passed if people think it will benefit those who are already wealthy.

Yes, training is an issue for all drivers - it is just that the impact is much much greater when people drive condos on stilts. Same reason you don’t have to have a license to ride a bicycle or walk.

Would I take Ms. Roof’s job at $1,200/hr? It goes against all I stand for but I have a hard time imagining turning it down.

This is great! And I am so impressed that they had the good taste to restore it to original early-90s condition and didn’t do a bunch of “upgrades” or too shiny paint. A remarkable effort. Read more

I am, if anything, even more confused than Joan. But then again, that’s a car in my avatar.

Pretty sure Rayce was pointing out one of the underlying problems, not in any way saying that it was a Good Thing.

Word. It’s another one of those cars that non-car people invariably feel the need to talk to me about. I have never driven one but I don’t imagine I am missing much.

STRAITS. Straits, not straights. It refers to a narrow passage of water.

An older relative of mine started his ‘53 Beetle deep in the Norwegian forests this way on a canoeing trip in the 1960s. Battery drained (6-volt system) overnight and he was way out in the middle of nowhere. He was, however, smart enough to do it by wrapping a rope around the wheel and tugging.

I would like to also remind you of Mossadegh and Arbenz, both in the 1950s.

There’s a nice Twingo for sale for $7,950 in Washington State right now.
