I feel like drawing a car. Do you want a sketch of yours? Post a pic below, and if I like it (and have time), I’ll draw it tonight. Show me what ya got!
I’m kind of a strange loner. I love cars, but I’m flat broke, so hanging out with other people in car-related situations is a little hard (why does everything have an entrance fee?)
I need a new car. Mine has 253k and is ticking; it’s only a matter of time before I lose a valve seat.
I love my car. In fact, I’ve loved it to death; at 251k miles, it’s developed some valve noise that can only be remedied with a new head. Thusfar, I’ve just fixed everything on it myself (I do a fair amount of shade-tree wrenching), but I’m wondering if this should be the end for my car. I’ve hit two deer (one on each…
In my most recent upholstery project, I refinished the seats from a ‘74 Porsche 914.
I have a puzzling problem, and I’m not sure where to start for help. Most of my own vehicles have enthusiast groups that run websites where free advice can be had, but this particular vehicle isn’t so lucky; it’s a 2006 Caravan.
I wear out a lot of tires. Typically, I’ve bought them at discount chain stores, assuming they’ll give the best prices, but I’ve recently been purchasing my tires from a local shop. My utility trailer developed a lump in the sidewall of one of its tires, so I took it in for a new set. They had a great price (about…
I recently purchased an older Ford pickup that had been stored in someone’s field for several years; it was a typical “ran when parked” scenario. They’d told me that it came with two full fuel tanks, so I was only mildly disappointed to find that the front tank’s cap wasn’t screwed on properly, and that it was only…
Car dealers like to talk about monthly cost for the loan, and we all know that buying a used car from a private party will have maintenance expenses attached, but what should a car really cost?
Commuting can suck all of the joy out of driving, so here’s a list of ideas to fall back in love with vehicles:
Motorcycles are cool. They’re fun to ride, always turn heads, and they can make you look way more awesome than you really are.
I haven’t always been a car guy. In fact, the newest car I’ve ever purchased was the most anti-car-guy vehicle ever produced: a Sebring Convertible. I was young, naive, and spent $2k over book at a dealer. I didn’t find out until trying to sell it that it had even started out life as a rental.
We get it. You’ve got a big date tonight, and everything needs to be just right. You’ve combed your hair, put on your best clothes, and even used some breath freshener. Before you can go anywhere, there’s one more thing that needs to be perfect: your car. Walking towards it, you suddenly realize that the windshield is…
Last week, I got the opportunity to sit down with Bob J., the star model for Acme Sign Company. His work has been featured on such bestsellers as School Crossing, Slippery When Wet, and Road Work.
Has anyone here installed rally-style lights onto the front of their car for highway driving? I’m looking to add some light to the front of my ‘Scort, and have always loved the look of rally lights. Problem is, very few of them seem to indicate their intended use; I can’t use floods on the highway. Ideally, I’d like…
It was a ‘00 Dodge 1500 with a 6" lift. And plenty of rust.
So, after posting the XKCD Car Names comic, I felt inspired to photoshop one of the vehicles. This got me wondering; what’s the best fanciful vehicle, based on the names generated using the chart?
Not sure if this has been posted before or not, but XKCD had a comic about cars yesterday that was too good not to share.
I’ve been driving FWD vehicles for too long. I love my ‘scort Wagon, don’t get me wrong, but I’ve just been unable to powersteer for way too long.
