Re: Winter....potholes....and automatics. Ugh!

Winter is coming again. I can't speak about potholes, but I've had to put up with repaving of roads that didn't need it, so maybe the roads that did need it got repaved, too? Autoweek found a corpse that you might be interested in hearing about. https://www.autoweek.com/car-life/classic-cars/a41316...

Now that Dort is one fine machine. Look how easy to change spark plugs on it. Everything is easy to get to. Wonder if that engine will fit in my Fusion.

Re: Sick of the Safety NAZIs

Well the extenders came today and they work great. Of course the first shot at trying them out and the car was going to make a liar of me. Had to drive halfway down the block with no belt to get the chime to go off, but then plugged in the extender and it was gone. They work pretty good. Instead of...

Re: Winter....potholes....and automatics. Ugh!

February snow and cold weather here in the Detroit MI area have been brutal on the roads. Thursday evening in the dark I hit this missing section of pavement and it blew my front right tire and bent the rim.
