I guess she must not taste too good or she would have gotten bit more than once.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

You learn something new... I thought it was completely disbanded when the 2nd gen(?) Eclipse like the one from 2 Fast 2 Furious ended production. Would have been 2002ish and then the Kim K Eclipse came out, bulging and utterly shapeless. Rope, was the DC/MMC joint venture an evolution of Diamond St...

Now it's going to be warmed over Renault-Nissan crap. thought they were still chtrylsler since they look like uglier dodges and jeeps?? Nissan not much better and...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Am I mistaken or is VW the only fully line manufacturer that no longer offer NA engines? I can't recall the last VW that didn't come with a turbocharger, or briefly, a hybrid system. there's still an atlas with NA written on it. vw's website also still lists the soon-to-be-extinct touareg which has...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

On a side note what's the logic of having to start an automatic car but having a lockout if your foot isn't on the brake to start? Wouldn't the car being in park negate any need for this (it's not push button either)? Shirley, you have heard of the belt-n-suspenders approach. If either one will kee...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Wow, the next time I drive to or drive back from Toronto, I hope I am able to adjust my travel times to avoid the evening rush hours. Leaving at 4:45 pm, I was in heavy stop-n-go traffic all the way to Hamilton and then again as I approached London. After London, the traffic volume was significantly...

HAH! So, as I was ripping the weather-stripping off my doors as I yanked them open after work yesterday evening, I was thinking: "Wow, Isn't that special? Someone else recently experienced this same weather mere hours before me. I wonder who that might have been. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/b6/0...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

With this cold weather Galadriel has been a bitch. Is there anything I can do to make sure the doors open consistently? Lately they've been freezing shut necessitating heavy and constant hipchecks. The rubber gasket around the door seems fine, but it's likely original (15 years old). Can I lubricat...

I've known people that rent a nearby room in some old lady's house for weekdays when they are working a lot of hours and want to avoid their long commute times.

Re: Finally got another car

If the clutch were dragging a little when it shouldn't, that could exacerbate issues with the lower-gear (hardest-working) synchros. If shifts are equally bad with the engine off and clutch released the clutch is probably not a significant factor. Hey, stop exacerbating on this site or you'll have ...
