Years ago, pre-kids, I found an e9 restorer in LA? whose website shows what the trouble spots are for these cars. IIRC, there are some body pieces and welds deep within the shell that require rework. If you’ve got the vehicle completely stripped, it may be a reasonable task, but if you’ve bought a daily driver or one… Read more
Had they, the best part would have been when he conveniently forgot about that promise and they went to jail.
I agree with the soft and round part, but what really bugs me is the leading edge of the driver/front passenger door. It’s a straight vertical line below the door crease, which doesn’t seem to fit with the flowing lines of the rest of the car. It seems to be taking a styling cue from the range rover, which while… Read more
cuz there ain’t no xxxth amendment guaranteeing you a right to drive your car. (of course, there were no cars back then.) So the originalists only focus on what was written down at that time. (Of course, they ignore the inconvenient portions, such as “a well regulated militia”.)
1) Trump the person and 2) Trump Organization. Wood compelled him to reveal Hannity as 3rd.
Yes, Thief is great - a psychological thriller/caper flick. I’m not a huge James Caan fan, but he is perfectly cast in the film. Also, Tuesday Weld, Jim Belushi and Willie Nelson.
Yes, both were great movies. I saw the Freidkin version first followed by the original. Freidkin’s is more atmospheric, while “The Wages of Fear” felt more brutal and uncomfortably suspenseful. And the soundtrack album, “Sorcerer” by Tangerine Dream is fantastic. (As an aside, TD also did the fantastic soundtrack to… Read more
As a lad, the reptile parents had a 1973 Olds Custom Cruiser - I learned to drive in it. In yellow with the wood grain sides. Clamshell tailgate with the bottom sliding under the 3rd row seat.
Yes. Here’s their logo.
Ms. Reptile and I had the Jetta sportwagen and we loved it. It ran great, comfortable, fun to drive (TDI & DSG), and a very well thought out interior. Tragically, it was the TDI, so back to VW for it. We couldn’t get the dealer to work with us when negotiating its replacement, so wound up with a Volvo. We did,… Read more
Are we the baddies?
Ditto - I kept a cut down broom handle and a hammer in the back of my S10. If I had to use it more than a few times, I new it was time for a new starter.
I doubt they could rely on their existing dealerships to actively sell something like this. They would have NO way to connect with these new customers.
I see them regularly flying in/out of SFO. I assume they’re bound for Asia.
Why is 4th grade too early? Some ideas are fundamentally abhorrent and there is no reason for kids not to see that. Kids know right from wrong and are developing a moral sense at that age. Letting kids see that there was a time when (some) people believed that it was OK to own other people is important. Those who… Read more
Good lord, we beat Italy in only one category - functioning of government. They best us in political processes, participation, culture and civil liberties. We’re fucked.
Wife and I were shopping for vw sportwagen tdi replacement. Many friends with Outbacks and lots of positive buzz. Went to the dealer to drive one and we were disappointed. We went in prepared to love it - liked the size, features, reputation, .... but the thing felt like an old american sedan. Lazy steering, body roll… Read more
