Y'know...I'm not an inherently lazy person. Actually, I'm pretty darn active, but I'm just not getting the point of having to lean towards my monitor and swipe my fingers all around a big screen as I sit here with my hand resting on my mouse and making absoluely minimal gestures to accomplish tasks...and my screen is… » 1/13/12 10:34am 1/13/12 10:34am

Not nearly the dramatic damage depicted in the photo above, but still upsetting at the time. As a young man I spent a lot of time and what, for me, was a lot of money restoring a 1969 MGC roadster. I parked it nose first, up against a wall at a restaurant and when I returned, found that some unknown SOB thought it… » 12/10/08 11:41am 12/10/08 11:41am

He wasn't driving. His car was parked in front of a club that happenes to be next to a bar I frequent. Someone went postal and took out a whole bunch of cars. Some were hit more than once. Used to be a nice, low key neighborhood with fun, dive bars. This new trendoid place has really effed things up with their… » 6/11/08 3:09pm 6/11/08 3:09pm

It's not the size of the screen, it's how smart the software is. My Nokia N82 has a screen a fraction of the size of the iPhone and with Garmin XT installed, it works better than the factory unit in my previous car. The view automatically zooms in or out depending on how close you're getting to waypoints and zooms in… » 6/11/08 9:41am 6/11/08 9:41am

As a big fan of convergence, I got my Nokia N82 because of its' 5 megapixle camera, GPS and several other Swiss Army knife abilities. With Garmin XT installed, it gives me voice turn by turn directions without incurring any usage charges. It's actually more acurate than the factory unit installed in my previous car… » 5/31/08 1:49pm 5/31/08 1:49pm

So, lemme get this straight. Jerry says the "brakes failed" and the police simply chalk it up to mechanical failure without an actual investigation or examination of the brakes. Wow...it must be awesome to have that kind of power. » 4/03/08 8:48am 4/03/08 8:48am

I'd love to know how the steering rack is. I owned two C's and the racks were always sloppy due to wear. It was a constant struggle to put just the right amount of shims in and keep it drivable. Always wished I could have just swapped in a B rack. » 4/02/08 10:07am 4/02/08 10:07am

After my old Jeep CJ7 wheezed and sputtered trying to run at high altitude crossing the Rockies on a trek from LA to NJ, I figured it was in need of a replacement engine. Since everyone was doing the small block Chevy engine swap, I wanted to go one better. And since just about everyone I talked to said it was… » 2/19/08 12:27pm 2/19/08 12:27pm

Had a yellow 128 back around 1980. Hands down, the absolute worst POS I have ever driven. Its carcass lies in repose at a local wrecking yard. Years ago, I was there looking for a project and used the occasion to take a leak on it. » 2/18/08 2:41pm 2/18/08 2:41pm

That complete lack of engine braking is one of the things that made me come to hate my Lincoln LSV8. When I first bought the car, it was unnerving. After retraining myself to substitute my right foot for the missing deceleration, it just wore though brake pads like crazy. » 2/12/08 12:37pm 2/12/08 12:37pm

I have a Nokia N82 with Garmin XT installed. It works independently of my cell network (no airtime), is as accurate as the factory GPS I had in my previous car and gives voice turn by turn directions while sitting in a generic phone clamp on the dash. Yes the screen is smaller, but it automatically zooms in when a… » 1/23/08 2:08pm 1/23/08 2:08pm

Sold my bike before I became a statistic here in overcrowded N.J. The irony is they tell us slowing down saves lives, then they complain when cell phone users slow traffic down. At any rate, my cars integrated Bluetooth solves the problem for me. The only time I take my eyes off the road is to glance at the caller ID… » 1/04/08 11:46am 1/04/08 11:46am

69 MGC...fifteen years old at the time was bored out .60 over with a hand made manifold accepting a third carb and a 3/4 race cam. I thought it looked great with the tubbed out wheel wells and fender flares which made room for really-really wide tires. The setup was extremely unfriendly to the stock half shafts though… » 1/03/08 12:48pm 1/03/08 12:48pm

The ad actually worked for me because, I've seen, first hand, how kids around that age come home from school reciting by rote the left wing eco agenda programmed into their little skulls by the public school system. They don't have the sophisticated thought process required to investigate both sides of an issue, so… » 12/28/07 3:12pm 12/28/07 3:12pm

I wouldn't know her if I tripped over her and THEN she bit me on the ass, but it occurs to me this is becoming the new way to boost your carreer in Hollyweird. Want to have the tabloids talking about you 24/7? Tired of struggling to remain relevant? Want to breath new life into your flagging celebrity status? Probably… » 12/27/07 2:44pm 12/27/07 2:44pm
