My kids are usually pretty well behaved, but it turns out bribing them with a reward when we go shopping is a pretty solid way to ensure good behavior out in public, and it makes the trip much less stressful.
No not the snow, I know that happens in the cold. What has me miffed today is that all winter I only get a low oil light when the temperature has been below 0.
New cars should play a clip of Ms. Frizzle yelling “Seatbelts Everyone!” when the car is started.
Does make it a bit cramped though
Have some fun Nordschleife videos.
I guess I can get back to work in 136 years
Since lately Oppo has been 50% car blog, 25% off topic and 25% realestate/remodeling. I thought I might add my own Bathroom remodel.
I, like most of you I suspect, troll craigslist to look for interesting cars I have no intention of buying. Today, Craig really delivered.
Every person on Craigslist and facebook seems to think I want to trade my car for their rusted out 2001 eclipse with a blown engine and “a little money too”
Went and looked at an Outback that we were interested in, the price was high and we wanted to negotiate on it. The sale sguy said he wouldn’t be able to talk to the finance guy unless we proved we were interested in buying the car by signing a Vehicle Purchase Agreement showing the windows sticker price.

But if you’re claiming to sell Toyotas, at least put one in your ad.

Wife hit a deer on her way home last night. Not sure how, but the windshield and mirror survived. No airbag deployment, driver door works but you have to smack the handle closed as it binds and won’t retract to allow the door to latch.
Why someone wants a FWD, 180 hp pickup is beyond me. Even crazier it sold at auction for $21,450
$12,000 for a 2006 Forester 2.5x Yes X, not XT. KBB puts this at $6,000 max.
The mysterious spots appearing on the driveway turned out to be power steering fluid. Checked te resivoir and it was certainly low. Topped it off and took it in for an examination today, shop came back and the power steering rack has gone bad. Just Peachy. on the bright side, it is paid off in July. On the down side,…
Outback an hour and a half away, want to see if it is worth looking at.
My wife’s 2009 Impreza 2.5i is leaving this imprint on the driveway.
And then I found this mess behind the first sheet I removed.
The company I work for was acquired last Friday. The new dress code states we are supposed to wear dress shirts and ties. I sit in my own office all day, I don’t have to interface with clients, I fix servers and switches. WTF do I need to wear a tie? Give me polos or give me death! Maybe I can get some car themed ties.
