My uncle was sharing a gantry crane picture he saw on GSA auctions. I looked at the vehicles, Here is a group of 29 “parts only vehicles, some with titles” for a current bid of $200. This could be a complete Lemons event if these heaps actually run.
I just bought another vehicle. As if eight wasn’t enough for a household of two. How could I go wrong paying $300 for a 98 Plymouth Grand Voyager that runs, drives, stops and has working A/C? And because this is Nevada, the van has zero rust. And, I’m thinking of also getting a Chrysler van, a year newer.
Apparently the soon to be produced “Top Gear US” will be filming in Las Vegas next week. My wife just told me that she signed us up for tickets in some type of lottery and WON two tickets to the filming next week. This could be pretty awesome. I have a great wife, full of surprises.
Sad to see news like this. A person out for a fun time on a private track crashed. Many of us would love to have a chance to have a track day experience and I guess this is one of the risks.
Two months ago, my daughter had a dude pull a u-turn into her 99 CR-V. After she bought it back from the insurance, we took possession of the wrecked carcass because it would be good to have a parts car for our 98. A couple of weeks ago, my wife noticed a 2001 at the local auction. As of last Saturday, we’re now…

“Flo” and her “Progressive Snapshot” device can only lead to trouble. Yes, this test was a only a test and the hackers were provided devices that were in “development” mode but if they can hack it, why not the bad guys?

A new version of Carmageddon is being released on April 23. I can't wait to buy and try it out. It is my all time favorite video game. I still play Carma2 almost daily.
Here's my Buick on the Balboa Island Ferry back in 2002.
I went outside tonight and the cooling fan on the Prelude was running. I had been home for 2+ hours and I don't know what caused it to run on. I started and shut down the car a couple of times and the fan finally shut off the second time. I was baffled.
We have a couple of junior Jalops out there. They write a letter to Mary Barra.
For the second time in about a month, I've done a set of plugs, cap & rotor and wires on a Honda. I did my wife's 98 CR-V in December and tonight, I did the 1991 Prelude. Aside from the height of the car, the Prelude was much easier.
Um, pretty horrid. An Australian film with American actors and an American car.
