Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I guess it's time for me to come back and have my honorary lifer post. It's long overdue but I wanted to really get everything covered all at once in all areas. Let's start with the good: The GTI is still going strong and now out of warranty so a bit of holding breathe but has been okay so far. I'm...

Re: Watkins' other Saab

Viggen hasn't gone anywhere (yet?). Next year will be ten years of ownership, so I want to keep it. Its way up there in mileage at 213k, and has a few problems that I don't feel like fixing, and really cant with my current job. The wife wants a Wrangler, so Ive been thinking of selling it to help f...

Re: Watkins' other Saab

Perfect example of what I'm talking about. Looks like shit and "comes with trail lights to be installed". $300 for that??? GTFO.

Re: Watkins' other Saab

we don't need to be a four car household for just two of us. Eh? Why not? My yard looks like a used car dealer. :lol: Wife's DD, my DD, wife's second car, my second car, pickup truck, yard plow truck (rotting remains of old pickup truck), project vehicle that I'll soon sell, travel trailer, buncha ...

Re: Watkins' other Saab

Dig the kayaks on the roof. I'd have a canoe now if I had a place to store it. Alas, I do not.

Re: Manuals you'll miss in 2019...

I don't think I'll miss any, for here's my logic: Pedestrian cars that might lose their manual won't be missed much because the manual was already limited to lower-end trims already, so it doesn't matter much because I might not be interested in the lower trim of a given car. High-end performance ca...

It's the minimizing that...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Lets see..... One car, two adults, and two dogs, so I had to fit a lot in without the benefit of folding down the whole rear seat. -Get both kayaks on the roof and secured, including making new coated steel cable bow lines. -Minimize from the four rubbermaid bins we keep everything loose in down to...

Re: Roll Call. Who's still here?

Im not on constantly, but I do check in every few days. Ive transitioned from being primarily a laptop user to a phone user for my intergoogling. I find forum formatting frustrating on a phone screen, so I just dont log in much. Yeah, the only active foruming I do is via Tapatalk, and this forum is...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Theres something enjoyable about burning the shit out of your tongue on hot sauce you made yourself I've long been aware of your masochistic tendencies. This does not surprise me in the least. Has your mother been telling stories again? Word of mouth when I spoke to yours. Luckily not limited to ju...
