    Glenmoore Gathering

    So, I was poking around the area today and some friendly policemen told me to park in a corn field. Odd I thought, but then something caught my eye: Mercedes SL Chevrolet Corvair Corsa Porsche 911 Older Porsche 911 Jaguar XK8 (not notable, but rare around here) Some Porsche 356s with...

    1978 Yamaha DT 125 Enduro (Some Assembly Required)

    To preface, I've always wanted a motorcycle, but could never find the time, space, or money to purchase or work on one. Now my brother has begun adventuring with his recently aquired atv, I've decided to indulge my interests and purchased this for a paltry$150: A 1978 Yamaha DT 125 Enduro...

    Vista taking forever to start up/eating up memory...

    My grandparents' computer, a laptop running Vista, has recently developed an issue where on start up, it will show the splash screen, and then a blank/black screen (with mouse visible) and sit for a few minutes before bringing up the desktop. I ran msconfig and a few other things to see if its...

    Summer Road Trip to Pike's Peak

    So, thanks to FDIC regulations, I get a manditory 1 week paid vacation. I've decided I want to dick around the West side of the country, since (family vacations to San Saba, TX and my recent move to NoDak excluded) I haven't been West of the Mississippi/Missouri Rivers in about 23 years or so...

    Forza Spec Club

    I was thinking, now that the Time Attack is over, perhaps we should make one or several 'spec' classes we can race. A solid balance to use whenever enough people are online to gather together. I know I have a hell of a time finding people to race (and often its because the multiplayer doesn't...

    Another 'help me choose' thread

    Okay, so I've decided that I need a new(er) car. I've bounced around the car dealerships and landed two deals on brand new 2010 models. Car A: The Kia Forte sedan. Base model with the convenience package (so I have A/C). Manual tranny and power nothing. Stickered to 15,900 or so, they're...

    1988 Prelude Si: Why shouldn't I buy this car?

    Looking to decomission my Volvo temporarily in order to do some overhaul work, so I've been poking around for a daily driver. I found a high milage Prelude in the area; will be looking at it on Tuesday. Anything I should be concerned about/look for? What are common issues I should be aware of...

    No Power...

    Well, today I had to do some running around for my work. I fire up my Volvo and every thing is fine. I get down the road stop at a red light. It turns green and suddenly there's this loss of power; like I'm running on half my cylinders or something. At the next stop, she just stalls out...

    Powersteering issues

    Well, it seems my brick has decided to throw me some trouble with the first cold snap of the season. Yesterday, driving home from my boss's house I turned off the road I was on (braking, clutch in, engine revving low) and the whole steering started to shudder. At first I thought maybe it was...

    Well, I currently have a Verizon account; and it's ending soon. So, comes the time for me to shop around. I don't talk much, so I only have the basic 450minutes package, and will probably pick up something similar. Now, I want to get a new phone, and find the best carrier/plan. I would like...

    Autoblog: Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger to NASCAR in 2010

    http://www.autoblog.com/2009/06/15/breaking-ford-mustang-dodge-challenger-reportedly-headed-to-nascar-in-2010/ I know it's probably overly wishful thinking, but one can hope this leads to something more akin to a touring car series than the fiberglass-shells that is currently the norm.

    Come August my current contract with Cingu--*ahem*-- AT&T Wireless will come to an end. I've been asking around about who I should go with, but I'm getting nowhere. So, I've decided to bring my quest online and ask the question: Who's you're provider and how well do they do that voodoo they...
