    Idiots + cars = LOL

    Eh. With that load, take the other tire off, strap the axle up and send it.

    What's on page 7? And concentric slave ELIMINATOR? Isn't the typical upgrade path to go TO a concentric slave? The hell application is this!

    I am the sodding owner! At-home crates for dogs that size aren't this damned big.

    Further meditation on specialist safety dog transport crate suppliers: Found a third credible supplier. Yet again, their appropriately sized crate doesn't fit in anything carlike. In fact, it doesn't even fit in full bore SUVs. It's got a doable footprint, but it's just too damned tall to fit...

    shrug She knows a lot of people too proud to drive around 4-figure bangers who are super enthusiastic about their shitboxes. Didn't know anything about them, so I looked into them today. And yeah. Absolutely not. The no-bowtie rule exists for a reason.

    That'd be MY solution. But they are our children and are to be protected as such. Seriously. One of the crate companies actually produces an equally certified pair of barriers that mount at the front and rear that: Allow the dogs more room because it opens up the unused height and width Opens...

    God save me for even asking, but any of you ever come across a Chevy Traverse? She who must be obeyed has decreed that it shall be considered because she knows a few people who have them and they are, and I quote, "nice". The Dodge Journey has also been commanded into the list of...

    3.6 also has a pretty nasty fuel consumption issue. I have a 2.5L Outback. It's not quick, but it'll do.

    CVTs are unavoidable these days. Of course Nissan's is the worst. But that radio thing is utterly unforgivable. So. I guess that leaves the responsible solution at another Outback.

    shrug it's for schlepping humons around paved roads, it's apparently got the cargo space, and it's available inexpensively used. I'm not too bothered by Pathfinder enthusiasts being upset about their truck being replaced by a mere car. Now, if it's a shit car on the other hand, that would be a...

    Yeah, Leasehackr's calculator is the one I was using. Leasehackr the forum, however, are less than helpful because, like all financial min/max nerds, they brainlock the second someone asks them about a transaction that violates one of their rules. "Hey, is it just me or is the MF on this...

    Just got back from test driving an Ascent and shooting the shit with my favorite salescritter.... Why do I have a favorite Subaru salesman? I need to do this shit less often. That said, he's pushing his luck with that 'favorite salesman' crap with this deal. Did it up as a 36mo lease for two...

    I'm not even worried about radar anymore. I've slowed down substantially in my old age. This hasn't stopped the parade of traffic stops though. I swear to fuck I must be flagged in the PA state police's ANPR system with a "harass me!"

    Practical concerns be damned, I am not buying another GM product for a 'things to rely on' slot. Stupid project? Sure. Stupid weekend car? Sure. Something that has to work day in and day out? Hell no. Further complicating matters, I've just realized I should probably have her measure the...

    Operation: Tape Measure Assault has successfully annoyed a Subaru, Honda, Toyota, Hyundai and Ford dealer. I also measured a Dodge Caravan because there was one handy. Conclusion: WHAT THE HELL DO YOU MEAN IT'S TOO BIG FOR A DODGE CARAVAN!? (The Caravan is SUBSTANTIALLY shorter in usable height...
