    Bad crash test losers and rolling time bombs

    Compromise? Well, just drop some Hot Shot (R-414B) and be done with it. Why play around with some bs refrigerant that has too many numbers?

    Interesting problem on my Honda. While performing an oil change, I decided to check all four brakes as they're squeeling like mad. Front pads are good, as are the rear drums. Except the drum plate on the right rear has a crack in a very odd way. It goes along the flat part where it presses...

    That is one of the huge things that is going to be make or break for me. The guy told me on the phone he used the 242 as his "winter car", which made me cringe, and may already be a deal killer. As much as I'd love a 242, it'd be hard to stomach a rusted frame/underbody. The 90 240 looks...

    So in my quest to become financially sound, I have stumbled upon an interesting decision. Tomorrow I will be looking at these three cars, all of which are being sold for $700: 82 Volvo 242 w/ 4 speed manual 88 Volvo 240 DL (244) w/ autobox, needs U joint replaced 90 Volvo 240 DL (244) w/...

    BMW recalls 1.3 million 5 and 6 series models worldwide

    Yes, but the Nazis were in Greece because the Italians couldn't get the job done. Hitler was content with not invading Greece (and had forced them into neutrality), but El Duce wanted to show him up by rebuilding the Roman Empire, and when they couldn't get it done, the Nazis had to go in for...

    BMW recalls 1.3 million 5 and 6 series models worldwide

    Wait, are you talking about the recent bail outs of Greece, or are you talking about WWII? If it's the latter, that was actually Italy...

    Sim City Reboot

    As far as the 'official' word goes, this is not a reboot, just another sequel, only without a number at the end. Apparently the only person calling it a reboot at this point is the OP, Aston Martin. From what I've read, both official and not, this is going to be a proper Sim City, with some...

    Forza Motorsport 4 Photothread

    Doing some multiclass racing with my club. Someone forgot to set the delays and we ended up with some pretty awesome pictures. On the second race, the delays were set:

    Or an NSX, I'd imagine. Also a sports car with under 300 HP for those who are counting.

    Your perfect two car garage (when you were a child)

    Well, tastes changed, but at least one car stayed the same through most of my childhood, that being the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. And no other year, it had to be the '67 Z/28. For secondary car, I can't really put my thumb on one consistant vehicle, except maybe my folk's 1987 Nissan...

    What about Honda drivers who don't want to drive a Honda?

    Datsun returns as a budget brand

    I'm all for a "modern day" Hardbody. I'd buy it faster than you could spell 'Datsun'.

    There's bear mountain (I think) which is like 20 miles out of Brooklyn. Which is probably an 8 hour drive for him.

    Gotta-Have-It-Green is really not a lime color, but almost a more pastel green. That Boss is what it should look like, and what I'd probably get the car in.
