This cop in a Charger stopped me once because he didn’t like how I cut through a parking lot. He was upset that I had ignored his presence, but his car was totally unmarked. I genuinely thought he was a security guard until he rolled down his window and I saw his arm badge. If he’d had a properly marked car, I… Read more
You know what causes people to obey the system more, a cop pulled over with his lights on. It doesn’t matter if he is parked on the other side of the highway, people instinctively slow down to 2MPH below the speed limit. If you want to slow people down even more, have the cop drive ten miles under the speed limit and… Read more
Near my home and business, there is a particularly steep section of road that has a posted 35 mph limit. Coming from either direction, you’re required to ride your brakes to keep it under the limit. This, combined with the fact that the average driver seems to be some sort of lead-footed moron who is operating a… Read more
[In response to the now deleted MN_Test statement that the police are not there to “protect and serve” and that “gotcha police work doesn’t take away from other police work.”] Constitutionally, no, they are not legally bound to protect and serve, but that’s parsing hairs. The SCOTUS found that because people were…
I for one will not be satisfied until my car looks like the cockpit of an SR-71 Blackbird.
I guess this was more of a thought exercise than real debate, but I really like having actual, dial-style gauges on my 2007 Mazda 3. I hate digital gauges (especially a center-mounted touchscreen...that’s a deal breaker for me...sorry, Elon).
More gauges, please!
This one time I rolled my window down in the middle of February in Austin. It was like 62 degrees out. Let me tell you, I left that window down the whole way to Top Notch and back!
I am very offended. Labor Camps are a horrible way to treat people with differing opinions. For centuries Labor Camps have created untold horrors to millions of people and are still in use today. Something, something Trump and neo nazis. Read more
I would choose the V6 for reliability.
Also sometimes communistic puns
Anyone who chooses to live in a community with an HOA gets what they deserve.
Hard to read about anything without political garbage mixing in. I haven’t watched NFL football for two weeks now because of it. Surprisingly I don’t miss it much.
While that’s all well and good, and understandable, my reply was geared more towards the fact that people come here to read about cars.
This is why I can’t get excited about hypercars anymore. Sure, they are cool, but the chances of me ever owning one or seeing one are minute. Not only do you have to have more money than you know what to do with, you have to break into the club by spending even more money so that some asswipe in Italy thinks you are… Read more
By my estimation, the train arrives at 4:03 PM.
Am I doing this right?
