    James May quote

    Hey guys, I'm looking for a blurb from James in one of the Top Gear news segments. I think it was on a Mercedes when they were laughing about color choices. James held up a brochure and said: "It comes in black, silver, silver or black!" What eppy was this? I've been looking through al my...

    Calling all animal lovers

    Okay, I have caught the Eater Bunny. In all seriousness, my son found it in the street. It's holding it's head up weird, but it's eating and drinking water, making pellets. I'm thinking it might have been attacked by a cat or a dog, or maybe just clipped by a car. I didn't know...

    Ownership Verified: My 'new' Mustang

    I finally went and got a replacement for the Taurus. While I'm still keeping the silver behemoth, I do love my new shiny car: It's a 2000 Mustang, the entry version I believe, but it's only got 92,000 miles on it. Not too shabby. :-)

    2nd gear in snow...O/D on, or off?

    Got a question about my car. Today we got a bunch of snow (4 freaking whole inches!:P) and of course the city didn't plow or salt. I know to use 2nd gear on my automatic when starting out and for braking to help reduce sliding around, but my car also has Overdrive. The Overdrive is normally...

    Bad alternator/starter/battery?

    Okay, the saga with my Taurus continues. A few weeks ago, it sputtered and died while driving it. As I was driving it, I noticed the inside lights and the driving lights getting dimmer and dimmer as I was driving. Then...nothing. Jumped the car and it started. Next day, the same thing..and...

    Asking for Donations

    As many of you know, my mother passed away very quickly on Thursday from cancer. The insurance policy she had has left us a bit short on her funeral costs. We seem to be short around $1000 at last sorting out. Found a few bits she had stashed around the house that helped. :-) So, I'm asking...

    My mother has cancer

    On Tuesday, we rushed my mother to the ER by an ambulance because she had fallen in the kitchen...again. She has been feeling nauseous and dizzy for over a month, and could barely walk a straight line. We had thought she had had a stroke, but she had refused to go to the doctor, and yes, she...

    My 98 Taurus

    I thought I had already posted mine, but here it is. And for the proof: (like I'd lie about owning a Taurus:P) Ignore the obviously wrong color on the panel. I bought the wrong color, and will be re-painting it in a few days when it warms up again. :cool:

    Fantasty Guest you Wish could be on Top Gear

    Don't think this is a duplicate thread so here goes: While we do have a thread on "Who'd you like to see as a guest in the upcoming series" thread, I got to wondering. If you could take any person from the past or present...dead, alive...or even fictional...who would it be? And why? For some...
