I ran on the tires the car came with when I bought it two years ago. Ancient Kelly Charger all seasons. Grip was ATROCIOUS. It was understeer all the way down. Front end would just not hook up, I’d have the wheel cranked and the car would keep plowing straight. Someday I will invest in a second set of decent tires.…
Just a thought.
I may have cheaped out and bought a plastic tank rad, but there’s no way it can be worse than this leaky factory radiator.
Looks like I’ll have to
replace the radiator keep topping off the coolant every few days.
Just pulled this off my friend’s POS Integra. It’s like chunks of brake pad just somehow fell out and there’s that one big lump left. Rotors looked like absolute trash but everything was so rusted that even a blowtorch, an impact gun, and PB blaster couldn’t get it out. So we elected to leave the rotors to a shop and…
Met up with a bunch of Canadian Opponauts and drove some scenic roads to get some beer. Beer was good enough to be worth it.
Today I just drove in no particular direction, and ended up in generic Redneckville, where they happen to have some pretty neat (and deserted) dirt roads...the Cavalier’s nowhere comptent as a rally car, but spirited drives sure are fun!
Alright, so here she is, I got this because I’m OCD enough to garage an Integra. (if you saw how bad they rust up here, you would too.) I know it looks fairly clean, but believe me, it’s a rusty mess under the nice body. Anyway, this has the 2.4 DOHC quad 4 (Z24 engine vs the lethargic pushrod tractor engine that is…
I got lucky that this year we broke a 126 year old record for longest time without a measureable snowfall. Gives me peace to know it’s finally out of danger of having to drive in snow/salt. New (to me) winter beater will hit the streets tomorrow, stay tuned for more.
just in case you haven’t heard a non-fart canned one before
Pizza > everything
I saw this today, as a potential beater, but things have worked out so that I don’t need to find a beater anyway. Guys says he’d take $250, just wants it off his hands. It’s crispy, but all the mechanical components are solid. Really one of the best deals I’ve seen. http://buffalo.craigslist.org/cto/5267823953…
I crossed my eyes and picked 3 cars off CL at random. Choose wisely
I once had a girlfriend with the last name of Hudson.
Since I bought this car, the driver’s side lock has been all goofy and would only lock with a very specific combination of power locks/flipping it over. Now, it’s gotten to where the key won’t unlock it from the outside and you have to open the trunk, which engages the power locks, to get the door open. So I decided…
Definitely could use improvement, but it’s been a learning experience. Bike is an old 1970s Sears model I garbage picked. Even came with intact tires!
