Drove my ‘70something Jeep Grand Wagoneer from Laramie to Des Moines without the rod that connected the pedal to the actual clutch. So it was all rev matching and starting in gear. You’ll be fiiiiiine. Also I’ll be following and maybe go wave as you pass by in Iowa. Good luck!

Big time NOPE. This was my dream car, had a 2003 w/ the 1.8T, leather, it was great. Then I learned about the ‘service position’ and it went downhill. Mandatory 5K, full synthetic only oil changes to mitigate the known and problematic oil sludge issue.

This was the first car I experienced 100mph in. Still not worth it.

As long as they are considered motorcycles and not bicycles then yes. Powered bicycles, especially on dirt trails not intended for them, do more harm than good. I maintain MTB dirt trails in my city and we are constantly fighting these things. I’m sure they are amazing and, as an almost 30 year motorcycle rider, I’m Read more

The problem with no print magazines is one of what do the youths subsequently cut out and tape to their walls? There is no way I could afford a wall of iPads with various Porsche ads glowing from them like I did with the paper versions. Read more

Why are the hard buttons on the dash labeled in English yet the digital display is using (presumably) Japanese kanji? Is this because it’s a press car or is English just that universal?

“Brother, you’re gonna be going through rear tires the way most people go through toothpaste and razor blades.” When was the last time you opened up a new tube of toothpaste?

Now if only Microsoft would change the password complexity requirements in AD so that it would reflect modern standards. Bonus if they would also add a ‘blacklist’ of words that aren’t allowed in passwords per site, like the company name for example. Read more

No, one of the immutable laws of IT is that if your in IT it always works for you. How else are we supposed to maintain our holier-than-thou ‘it works for me’ attitude when pleb users complain? Duh, you sure your in IT?

I found the C8 Aileron Spyder the better looking version myself.

If they are taking most of the parts from the RAV4 anyway I’d be much more interested if they also offered the hybrid drivetrain in either the AWD Camry or Avalon as well. That would make an AWD Avalon a much easier sell for me.

The cats are in the exhaust pipes and under the motor usually. Look at any modern sport bike and notice how ridiculous the pipe is by the foot pegs. That’s all emissions.

I’ve never hitchhiked myself but I did pick up a hiker on the way home from college once. I went to school in Laramie, Wy and was heading home to Iowa. Let’s just say the drive was boring. Saw a guy thumbing for a ride and set what the hell. With one hand on the door lock and the other on my baseball bat we had our Read more

Coming back from Rome going on 10yrs ago now we were flying into Heathrow but ended up being horribly delayed because some fancy woman was opening Terminal 5. Someone called herself Queen Elizabeth... Whatever lady, call yourself a Queen but your fanciness caused me to have to take a bus to Gatwick, spend the night Read more

No, I’m sure Andretti got really close to a deal then at the last minute managed to crash out or have a pen with no ink.

Or if someone travels a certain place at a certain time everyday, SYNC 4 might start recommending that address at that time.” — ‘Honey why does your car keep showing directions to her house every day at 12:30?’

Of course the dealer is “Unable to provide that because putting a price quote in writing would violate the Truth in Lending Act.”. If they put it in writing THEY would be violating the Act when they tried to change the deal by tacking on undercoating, etc. The dealer is just making sure they don’t get themselves into Read more
