Spotted way in the back at Costco, actually more towards the gas station, so this was probably an employee. Color me impressed.
Right now I have a tiny 8'x8' garage door that leads from my shop out into a gravel service yard. 8' wide is barely wide enough to get a pickup truck through. Forget it if you have telescoping mirrors, so it’s currently screwed shut. I’ve decided to enlarge this door so it can actually be used.
Dropped the transmission pan on my ‘11 Sierra to change the filter, gasket, and fluid in the pan. 101K miles, and not too much gunk on the magnet. Decent amount of towing done in that time-frame, but also lots of highway miles.
Imagine my surprise when stopped in front of my local VW dealer and happen to spy the Saab logo still prominently displayed on their sign. And yes, this sign is front and center (or rather, right on the corner), not on some back access road despite the name on the road sign. That’s the huge showroom in the background…
Since I dropped cable, I thought I’d share a couple of Netflix recommendations.
Since we’re on the topic of identify scraps of cars in the Maine woods,I submit this door that is somehow lodged under a gigantic boulder. Any ideas oppo?
I’ve been trying for several days to set up a time to go look at some vehicles from a Craigslist seller. He’s retired and lives about 45 minutes away from me. Despite the fact that I work, and he is retired, he seems to have the more restrictive schedule. I finally got him to commit to meeting me this morning at 10:30…
It’s amazing how often I run across cars I’ve never heard of before, much less seen on the road, even when they were brand new. Who knew Buick made a hot hatch back in the 80s? Also, does Buick have some of the best model names in history? Skyhawk, Wildcat, Invicta, Riviera, ROADMASTER!, Electra. Name a brand with…
If they didn’t get crap like this in the mail. Looks official? Might be something important! WRONG!
I just completed the 95K mile oil change on my 2011 Sierra, which means the 100K mile service is on the horizon. I use this truck for work to pull a 7,000lb trailer as well as haul material up to 12' long in the bed. I’ve owned it since new, and I have no plans to buy a new truck anytime soon. In other words, I want…
After pouring 2,240lbs of concrete this morning, I decided to crash on the couch and play a little Xbox, especially since my wife took the kids & my MIL shopping and won’t be back for about an hour. After firing it up, I get the dreaded update screen. 20 minutes later and it’s still not done. Sigh.
So one of my customer makes huge marine cranes, and they were scraping out their paint booth today when I stopped by on a delivery. I talked to the forklift operator who was hauling these chunks of dry paint out of the building. He said it was about 6 months worth of build up. Too bad cranes aren’t painted more…
I need a diagnosis.
Calling all die cast collectors.
TTAC has an article out about a slip-up on Buick’s website that seems to indicate we will be getting a GS model and it will be available with the V-6. Probably only in Sportback configuration. This would be a welcome change to the GS trim since the current version is basically an appearance package.
that the Buick Regal wagon is supposed to be revealed tonight. For those not in the know, it’s basically just the Opel Insignia wagon with a Buick grill. The new Regal is a bit larger and lighter than the outgoing model, and it sounds like you will only be able to get it in a “hatchback” or wagon here in the States.…
So I took my 4 year old into work with me today to change the oil in my wife’s Saab 9-7x (AKA a trailblazer with a non hideous interior). When I popped the oil filler cap I found this:
Sitter took off for St Patty’s day, so I did as well. Took the boys to the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, which despite it’s name is fairly small. But they have a solid collection, and let you climb over most of it. In other words, it’s a great place to take a pair of toddlers. Here’s the highlights.
