    Ownership Verified: Insert "Beat" Pun Here

    Behold! Bask in the magnificent, tiny splendor of the third Honda Beat ever to roll on United States soil. For a size reference, it's smaller than a VW Mk1 Caddy. I'm more interested in what questions people have about it, rather than droning on and on about how great it is. Also, the...

    "The Rab... wait, that's a Rabbit?"

    A VW-enthusiastic coworker sent me a local CL ad for a 1981 VW Rabbit Truck, which I had never even heard of before, and said it might be a laugh to buy this and asked if I could even imagine owning one. Three days later... well, yes, it is a laugh. He went with me on the test drive for moral...

    Need legal advice after accident

    So I'm pulling out of the Animal Protective Association after my shift ends at about 5. Being that this is rush hour on the main thoroughfare through this part of the city, traffic is regularly stopped at the intersection at the bottom of that map. On this occasion, traffic was backed up...

    New York/Philly

    I'll be bouncing back and forth between the two on vacation from the 11th to the 17th. If anyone wants to make a meetup out of it, particularly if you're going to the Bouncing Souls shows at First Unitarian, we'll make it happen.

    Mazda2 vs. Ford Fiesta

    I've narrowed my new car search down to those two. Particularly, a Mazda2 Touring vs. a Fiesta Hatchback SE. Some important bullet points that I've found in my search so far: - There are only six manual transmission Mazda2's within 200 miles of St. Louis, and the only Touring spec was just...

    Dogbert's '10 Child's Play Birthday Fundraiser

    So ever since my 21st birthday, I've been having donation drives for Child's Play. And this year (the fourth year) is no exception. I've raised over $1,000 so far from the entire thing, and I'm hoping this year to raise another $300. I'm doing this through the Causes app on Facebook. I don't...

    Recent trouble with transmission

    After the latest autocross, my transmission has seemed like it's needed extra clutch and a gentle touch to shift with ease; otherwise, it shudders like I'm not giving enough clutch when I drive what used to be normally. Now, I felt a very slight pop while I was driving yesterday, and it seems...

    No 56k: The Space Shuttle Thread

    So as most of you probably know, this is the last year for Space Shuttle missions. The Bush administration sought to kill the Shuttle program after the Columbia disaster, and replace it with the ill-conceived Constellation program, which is now dead. The Shuttle program was irreversibly...
