My wife and I are considering a 2003 Camry as a replacement for her Echo. It’s nicely loaded, has around 170k miles on it, and looks to be in great shape for around $3500. It has the 2.4L four cylinder, which should get pretty decent mileage. Yeah, it’s a Camry, and thus not exciting at all. But for my wife’s usage,…
The nearest large-ish town around me is about to get a brand spankin’ new Northern Tools store. We’ve had Harbor Freight, Lowes, Home Depot, Menards, and a few other high-priced tool places around for quite some time, but I’ve never had a Northern Tool near me before. How do they compare to HF?

My wife’s 2001 Toyota Echo hit a nice milestone today. Certainly not an exciting car, but it gets great gas mileage and has been very reliable.
Gotta love it when my wife sends me pics of cool cars she sees in the grocery store parking lot. I just wish I’d seen it in person.
I have a co-worker in need of a 4x4 family hauler. He is fighting the age-old battle of “take on a car payment and get a newer, nicer vehicle (and a car payment) or buy an older one with cash, drive it until the wheels fall off, rinse, repeat”. He is capable of some repairs on his own, but with two kids and another on…
