The CT6....

.....is stellar. Like, holy shit. The Continental is a JOKE compared to this. The proportions are perfect. The lines, cues, etc...are all distinctly Cadillac. It isn't some ambiguous luxe sedan. Nobody will mistake this for any other make. Can't wait to see it in the metal Friday/see the interior. » 3/31/15 5:09pm 13 minutes ago

To catback exhaust, or not to catback exhaust

Now that my Grand Cherokee has four new oxygen sensors (shout out to Wrench Auto in Middleton, WI for putting them on for me), it is in perfect working order with one small exception: it has a hole in the exterior casing of the main muffler. It's not actually leaking yet, but at some point it will need to be replaced. » 3/31/15 4:36pm 46 minutes ago

Oppo I feel stupid 

I just spent $70 on a copy of Need For Speed Underground 2 for the Xbox. (it cost so much because it was still in it's original packaging). I read on wikipedia that NFSU2 was compatible with the Xbox 360. Full of excitement and nostalgia, I put the disc in the tray hoping it would work. It didn't. I got a message… » 3/31/15 4:34pm 48 minutes ago

Who likes old school power pop?

Digging back into The Wrens after they popped up on my Guided By Voices station. Only three records but they are all perfect. The Meadowlands is one of my all-time favorite recordings. Totally a desert island album. » 3/31/15 4:31pm 51 minutes ago

In addition, the interior surfaces will be… » 3/31/15 4:30pm 52 minutes ago

I like this

It's handsome, free of unnecessary swoop de doops (lookin at you MB), nice wide yet subtly muscular presence. It only looks sad if you have no imagination and can't see that the LED running lights are a callback to the blade fenders of the '60s and '70s. If you disagree you're wrong. » 3/31/15 4:23pm 58 minutes ago

It's Finally Decision Time

There are two cars that for a while now have been really pulling me in and I mention from time to time how I really want them. The time has come for a decision on a "weekend" car. Which will certainly not be just a weekend car. So here are the choices, now narrowed down to 2. The future Mrs. and I have been… » 3/31/15 4:20pm Today 4:20pm

2-way radio?

I'm tasked with purchasing some 2-way radios for our school PTA. We're going to use them for the upcoming spring festival. I've got a mid-range budget, but I have to buy 10 of them, so I have to keep it relatively cheap. I've had mixed experiences with these things in the past, and I have read lots of bad reviews. … » 3/31/15 4:17pm Today 4:17pm

5-Year-Old Hit & Run Eyewitness

"When I was a kid, I was really into cars. Not glamorous cars like Ferraris—I mean I memorized the model years of Fords and Nissans. Coincidentally, this came in handy one day when my family was in a hit-and-run car accident where the offending driver sped off before my parents could identify anything about the car.… » 3/31/15 4:13pm Today 4:13pm

NPoCP: Renault you want it edition

Renault utility van, manual trans, apparently registered in CA, though I don't know how. This would be a great little oddball daily. http://ventura.craigslist.org/cto/4954907737... » 3/31/15 4:13pm Today 4:13pm

Aya, do you get Chinese cars in Indonesia? How awful is the JAC T8? 

Have you ever been in one? Is it bad? I don't know why I'm curious but I just found out they are available here and manual only. » 3/31/15 4:11pm Today 4:11pm
