    Ownership Verified: T'Challa - my 2010 Mercury Grand Marquis

    After my unemployment benefits ran out, I had to think of a way to come up with some money so that I could continue to keep a roof over my head and not live in my car. Regrettably, that meant selling my Mustang. Behold - the replacement car: A 2010 Mercury Grand Marquis LS, with 44,500 miles on...

    What I did this summer (NHMC Cruise Night/Tasca Ford Fest@NED)

    As some of you may recall, I was away from the forums for awhile. This is one of the things I did - I joined a car club! The New Hampshire Mustang Club, to be precise. This is from one or two of our weekly Cruise Nights, in Hooksett, NH: (Us 2010 Mustang GT guys stick together)...

    Lone Wolf Cruisers club cruise May 19th, 2012

    This past Friday, while having lunch at a local restaurant, I saw an announcement inviting people to come out for a cruise the next day. So I decided to join them. In all, there were 9 cars on this cruise: a 1957 Chevy coupe, a 1957 Chevy wagon, a 1951 Chevy sedan delivery, a 1955 Chevy coupe, a...

    Phoenixsac's midlife crisis-mobile!

    As some of you may know, I am moving back to New Hampshire to close to my family and look for work after being laid off by my employer. As I am a gearhead, the only way across the country is to drive, and my '97 Geo Prizm/Toyota Sprinter just wouldn't be able to make it. So, a new car was...

    Automotive Deal-breakers

    I was doing one of my favorite activities - perusing cars for sale - when I came across this Cadillac. Hmm, I like the color. Aftermarket wheels, but they're the same size as stock and not too bad looking. The chrome trim on the B pillar I can do without, but it's a small thing and easily...

    Thinking about a 4X4 pickup...

    I just got word from my job that my office will be closing, and I will be moving back home to be with my family in New Hampshire. Living in New England means that I will be needing a winter beater so as not to subject my car (I'll probably be getting a Panther platform car - Crown Vic, Grand...

    Need help with choosing a new car

    Hopefully by the end of this May, I will have given my notice at my job and will be moving back home to New Hampshire. The car I have right now (A 1997 Toyota Sprinter - okay, okay, a Geo Prizm) is woefully inadequate for the task at hand. So I will need to purchase a new(ish) vehicle to carry...

    R.I.P. Peter Yates

    He also directed "Krull" - a fantasy/sci fi movie I rather liked. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

    Someone's been having fun with Wikipedia...(Sorry, BlindIo.)

    Like many of you (Or none of you), I was curious to see who the "English" dude was in the meme that people were posting in the Funny Pictures thread. After some online research, I discovered that the painter and subject was a French artist named Joseph baron Ducreux. I went to Wikipedia to see...

    Looking for dining recommendations in Las Vegas...

    During the first week of November, I will be in Las Vegas attending the 2009 SEMA show. I am hoping that forum members who live in or near Las Vegas like 73GMCSprint can steer me towards some good restaurants. I'm not looking for posh restaurants - I don't think my friend Chris and I would be...

    New car... 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX 4.6

    Well, about a month ago, the transmission on my Cadillac died - and after consulting with friends and family about the wisdom of spending 2K dollars for a rebuilt transmission for a 2K dollar car, I decided to look for a new one. After several weeks of searching, I found this - a 1996 T-bird...
