Wonderful design. I see it and think about blasting ahead through gears letting it sing-of course that was the whole beginning of the Canonball Run movie, letting it sing and run. I wanted to do that. Very badly. It's a horrible design, yes, for the world we live in but this was not designed for a world where cars are… » 9/28/14 3:20pm Sunday 3:20pm

what part of the country/world are you in? Due to family time limits I sold the MTB and went road. Since I did that I picked up a cross bike this year and its quite amazing what it can do.

The progenitor of all racing turbos.

inspired by the recent 'identify this car' post, is this picture. the 1972 MK3 Shadow can-am car. this car never ran right back then but today, boy does it ever. The layout is the thing. Everyone loves the Porsche 917/10-30 but this car had the layout. Audi today uses this layout and so did everyone in between. Block… » 9/26/14 9:04pm Friday 9:04pm

I gave the Mazda some long overdue love.

So I took it's face off, showing its gums. The day after the concert, I found myself doing things around the house. Manual labor? What the hell was I doing. While I was at it, I decided to clean the four year old K&N filter and tighten the poorly DIY-installed fog light on the right side. It was pointing all over the… » 9/25/14 7:34pm Thursday 7:34pm

venue review: Redrocks in a manual (Saw Kings of Leon last night)

Redrocks, Morrison Colorado. 9/24/14. Mazda3. Entering the venue involved an up hill stop-n-go distance of several miles never reaching seven mph and never really completely stopping. It was that middle ground of not fast enough to fully dis-engage the clutch or stopped. This was perfect for burning the sucker out.… » 9/25/14 7:18pm Thursday 7:18pm

Oppo research: Prices haven't changed (much) in thirty years.

Case in point. This car, the Chevy Celebrity with V6, cost $11,600 in 1988. In many ways, it was the 2014 Honda Accord. This was the best selling mid-sized family sedan-ish car then. Today, that position goes to the Honda Accord at $28,000, only $4,800 more than the Celebrity corrected for today's dollar. (more) » 9/25/14 4:41pm Thursday 4:41pm

question? Did said Vette owner understand what happened or did Vette owner think of the jeep guy as an Ahole douche for parking close. Id prefer the whole "Ahole parking" chalk lines someone did to the BMW a while back. Regardless if I were in my tiny OGmini id park behind him in the rest of the unused space. » 9/25/14 10:51am 9/25/14 10:51am

tell you what. Ikea lately has kind of stepped up in furniture quality. Probably with laser cutting and CAD work making this fit a bit better than before. I have a kitchen table. Splits apart and the middle folds out to add that extra leaf in there to seat 6. It cost $300. It's solid and totally worth it especially… » 9/21/14 10:56pm 9/21/14 10:56pm
