Last night I dreamed I was standing outside a car dealer, counseling all the people going inside to avoid anything with an internal combustion engine, since they were going to be obsolete in 3 years. I had this 3-ring binder with all kinds of charts and graphs showing the efficiency and cost of electric energy storage…
An “early adopter” friend of mine just got a new Rift S, and he let me borrow his Rift to see if I’m interested because he wants to sell it.
I’ve not been so active with posting the last couple years, but I’m still here....
Based on a true story.... Bought a ‘96 Tracker off craigslist back in June and I’m now on my second 12 oz can of brake fluid, topping off the reservoir every 4 days or so.

For those keeping score at home, that’s one silver and one maroon PT cruiser to scratch off the list of still-operating vehicles.
Arguing over whether the C6 Grand Sport is properly a performance model below the Z06, or just an “appearance” trim level in a widebody chassis.... What say you?
If an Acura CL and an Infiniti J30 backed into each other, which one would look more improved afterward?
Wait... I didn’t.
Fender stripes on a Challenger? Good.
Let’s say you just got a new, facelifted Tesla Model S. You’re obviously very proud of the thing, and that new, smooth, grille-less front is unique on the road.
These babies will grace the intake of my Miata 1.6 as soon as I get the new ECU sorted out.
I occasionally recount my last night’s dream on oppo if it’s somehow car-related. Here we go again:
My exhaust manifold was cracked, leaking pre-cat fumes into the engine bay and cabin, also the likely cause of my recent failed emissions.
