    Random Thoughts... [Automotive Edition]

    I am Very Glad I can function basic car repair now because shit happens like the the fiat's wiper being loose??? For some reason?? I had to tighten it? Can you imagine having to take the car in for something so damn stupid in a pandemic? Confidence that I can actually fix things might bite me in...

    I ordered a floor jack from home depo that was supposed to come today... hasn't even shipped. The jack stands came in a week ago and now time to pick them up is up. Ah yes these are so useful without the jack <_<

    Yeah that's what I am doing basically. The restrictions are on the destinations. You can't really get out of the car to go anywhere. The number of "fun" cars i see on the road is a much higher percent recently because without anywhere to go you are left with people who drive because they like it.

    Ownership Verified: The wait was long enough: leviathan's Tesla Model 3 Performance

    This is funny to me because i think i get this on my cars? My solution to the bug being slow is controlling the momentum so that just became my driving style so I don't use the brakes much. Glad to hear that doesn't mess the brakes up I'd feel real dumb if mine died from underuse :|

    See the thing about MA drivers is we are usually not assholes for the sake of being assholes as much as laziness and efficiency. In the like 15 years I've been driving I have Never encountered someone that kind of asshole. The worst is usually like cutting me off back once or tailgating, which...

    This is the only redeeming point of reality rn honestly. Gas is so cheap that I am driving for the sake of driving a lot. Days I go out now include like 2 hrs of driving to literally nowhere past "this road is nice". I filled the fiat for like 17$ one time it is Excellent.

    There has GOT to be a modern solution to that. Like the main problem is in the fiat at least, the inside is so small the dash barely fits anything and has this stupid texture that makes putting a phone mount anywhere a pain (my verfication note is hung from it). In the beetle i can actually use...

    So today I passed someone on the highway, not like a terribly aggressive way. Even used my directional despite being in MA. So this guy as soon as i start to switch lanes, I assume, sped up and then beeped with me. They proceed to cut off someone else, so they can cut me off back, with...

    I had a conversation with someone who had just had his 350z hit and bought another of the same thing and they said "I probably won't be able to find a replacement if this dies" I guess that is why. RIP. I still see them around and normal looking a lot but I assume those people are not selling lmao.

    Yeah it makes more sense in the past tense when they were new but it's kind of hilarious to me because status symbol cars now are like... teslas or something and it's because of virtue signaling bullshit and price more then the car being good or fast or anything lmao. Most guys don't even care...

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    What is even the point of that like? Are you dating them FOR the car? Do they at least let you drive it? What is the point of ANY car group if not shared suffering isn't involved at all? Idk i guess it is just wild to me because of all the shit I am a fan of, car stuff despite skewing REALLY...

    Random Thoughts... [Automotive Edition]

    Finally located the damn mouse, lying dead on the ECU unit. Hopefully this is taken care of for now. I was hoping to remove it before it died but at least I found it. At least this experience has made me more confident I am capable of taking the car apart and putting it together properly, and...

    Random Thoughts... [Automotive Edition]

    Yeah this was really highlighted for me when keeping the beetle and having the fiat as direct comparison because it is actually possible for me to be driving the fiat and miss the beetle, shockingly. I miss things about most cars my parents owned even.

    I am... not looking forward to that. The beetle's was obnoxious enough of being at some fucked angle under the bumper where you couldn't see what you were doing at all.:| see what I have done my whole life is plan out specific routes that can be enjoyable for anywhere I need to go to daily or...
