Re: ClutchDisc's new ride

Glue it to the S10 and have a 4.5 liter I-8. Ranger's engine is good. Maybe pull it and mount in S10 Bed for a rear wheel drive setup. Then push the Ranger carcass off the cliff. Aww, there goes my You Tube fame. It's already been done: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCSPecBl7uI Don’t worry; you’ll...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Thing is, not many phones will support that much storage. And definitely not dumb phones. i thought apple was the only one who did this no SD card thing, but now a lot of them are doing it. Apple also seems to have paved the way for the invisible headphone jack, as others have adopted this practice...

Re: ClutchDisc's new ride

Well, ClutchDisk picked up the Focus tonight. He didn't waste any time getting used to it. We drove from Ann Arbor back to Detroit area and I had a tough time keeping up with him, that on a rainy, dark night with heavy traffic. He has learned how nicely that little car can zip around compared to a ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I personally would try to steer her toward a larger sedan like an Accord, Passat or Mazda 6 (all three offer good lease deals). I wouldn’t put down more than 1500 on a lease though.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

looks like they're finally succombing to social/market pressue; the new tiguan has no cd player. this means almost all of the new generation VWs will have no CD player. this seems to have started with the honda civic and is creeping its way into new models. new cr-v doesn't have one (but odyssey do...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Eatting my words here a bit but asking genuine thoughts on compact SUV market (CX5, CRV, Equinox) without AWD? I'm not foreseeing a huge need as she is a teacher and I'm no longer in a profession where I am required to go in during inclement weather. Having the benefit of gas mileage and a few thou...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

It's simply that the iPhone is just like every other smartphone I've had, but slightly worse. Truth be told if Blackberry had one where I could stream Pandora and Stitcher I'd likely have one of those. I don't see them as often. whats weird is I went from iPhone 7plus to iPhone 8 (non plus) and i s...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I currently have an iPhone 7 and think with the next go around I'll go back to Android. There are enough features that I've found just don't work as well with the iPhone as with Androids and I haven't quite fallen into fanboi status. not a fanboi (don't think eye yam at least) but i can never stay ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

An inactivated smartphone (or even dumbphone for that matter) with a big microSD card is an effective device. Make sure it's sdxc compatible and slap in a 512GB card. Carry another and swap it in easily for a terabyte, or wait a little longer for terabyte cards to hit the market. Wait, nix that, th...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I've had to start asking if a CD player is included as I have plenty of things that can't be found online. The new VWs have CD players in the glove box, which is a weird spot for it. looks like they're finally succombing to social/market pressue; the new tiguan has no cd player. this means almost a...

Re: RomPirate's new-new-new-new car

Well, new to me at least. I've been looking at getting another car for some time now. Took a look at the Fiesta ST, the FR-S and some E46's. I'm a shade tree mechanic that happens to like tools a lot too, and my other cars have been so darn reliable I haven't had a good wrenching in some time. It o...

Better be decent resolution, too. I don't wanna see no slushbox with a boot covering the PRNDL and a third pedal painted on the floormat!

car would be ancient to me, but sounds like a decent car nonetheless. :)

edit: what happened to the s10??
