    Unverified Ownership 1989 Mini - Andeh's notactuallyaCooper

    I like how even by 1989 they still hadn't fixed the fan location. I guess figuring out how to install an electric fan behind the grill would have broken BL/Rover Group's R&D budget. But that's part of the charm of the car, Issignonis was able to engineer his way out of a limited development...

    Disable the AMD GPU in Device Manager and see if the problem persists. You may loose access to the external monitor with it disabled. I'd update the Intel chipset drivers (search for "Intel inf") and check for a firmware update for your laptop.

    My first guess would be video card drivers. See if there are any newer drivers and install them. Does your laptop have a hybrid set-up where it switches between the Intel and ATI GPU? If so, disable one of them and see if you can repeat the issue (your external monitor may not work with the...

    It's for the best TVR didn't make an integrated stereo. The volume knob would be in the boot, and the CD changer would be integrated into one of the tires (if you where lucky).

    People panic. The proper thing to do is to put the car in neutral, apply the hand break, and wait for a shirtless hippy to wonder by and block the intake with a beer bottle:

    Ford's Mustang Mach E

    Thank God Musk never included speakers on the Tesla. Half the cars here would be farting down the streets.

    Ford's Mustang Mach E

    A super charger whine without the roar of an engine is like a rock band with a single instrument. It can sound cool for a bit, but it can't sustain itself for long.

    Craig(B)'s List - Oddities and Weird Stuff

    I'd rather have a '70-'71 Ranchero than an El Camino. A design so beautiful Ford had to compensate by making the next 8 years absolutely grotesque.

    Buy the girlfriend an adapter for the seat, teach her how to drive a stick, she drives the car, he pays for it, problem solved.

    2021 Ford Bronco trim/color/options decoded

    They burned that bridge spectacularly. I am guessing that since then Ford and Goodyear have developed a pretty strong relationship.

    2021 Ford Bronco trim/color/options decoded

    That's a great point. A lot more people want to go hiking, skiing, boating, or just doing small scale farming than hardcore off roading. They want something which won't leave them stranded on the road to the trail head, or that can make it across the field.
