Or a lot of times they do a whole bunch of mods that screws up basic features of the car, and then are too cheap to spend the little bit of money to fix those issues or do the mods right (such as nearly every car I see with aftermarket wheels and the TPMS sensor light on on the dash because they were too cheap to swap… » 8/15/14 10:30am 8/15/14 10:30am

I keep thinking after his wreck he at least wanted to get his 15 minutes of fame on the evening news for facing down Tony Stewart with a taste of his own medicine (lest we forget Stewart is known for expressing his displeasure safety be damned by walking on the track and throwing helmets). Instead he forgets that… » 8/13/14 10:51am 8/13/14 10:51am

Ahh the custom car conundrum. Mod the car, and expect value increase. Its a common mistake. This car screams "someone else's basket case", I guarantee when you go to pick it up the check engine light is on, and while he says its a "$100 sensor he hasn't had time to change" the reality is it needs $2000 worth of… » 8/06/14 8:44am 8/06/14 8:44am

My girlfriend before we met was choosing between the CRV, RAV, and an Acura RDX. The RDX while more money, crushes the other two in fit and finish of course, as well as the suspension, and the turbo engine which makes it surprisingly quick. Its probably the best handling small SUV type vehicle I've ever driven. She… » 8/02/14 9:36am 8/02/14 9:36am

its really more restaurant portions. You go to the average place now and they give you a boatload of food. It just wasn't like that back then (except for certain places that it was known for.) Of course you tend to eat all of it, and drink as well. Even the chain restaurants do it. Every time you go out to eat… » 8/02/14 9:12am 8/02/14 9:12am

The frame and drivetrain aren't the only things changed on these trucks to get that kind of tow rating. I can tell you for example the brakes on my 2500 HD are HUGELY bigger than on a 1500, and it has 8 lug wheels, the increases don't stop there. Also proper towing requires proper equipment, a big trailer is going… » 8/01/14 11:31am 8/01/14 11:31am

Original paint but you're gonna need to have a pro remove that pin-striping and that weird emblem on the nose and not mess it up. All original?? I spy chrome up pipe and turbo heat shield, AFPR, and Adjustable wastegate. That said the car is probably almost worth the ask... I'd try to go 17k on the car. … » 7/31/14 2:43pm 7/31/14 2:43pm

This right here. While I think the price is still too high, this Jeep falls into the same frame as the musclecars of the 60's. Looking at production numbers they built a LOT of all of that time period's cars, however at the price point that cars were at new at the time, people treated them as almost throwaway. … » 7/29/14 8:59am 7/29/14 8:59am

Ive seen cheap ones bend in my hand while turning a tough bolt, Ive seen their measurement be slightly off and them round a tough bolt, But the best is when they break while using all your might to turn something and you either punch yourself in the face or punch something else hard like the ground. Thats why you buy… » 7/22/14 2:30pm 7/22/14 2:30pm
