Interesting Car Spotted Thread

Are these considered special to you guys? I'm seriously asking because out here they are very common.. and for the price, they are basically the same as a C7 Z06 that has options. Was/is it unbelievable that I daily drove the Z06/Z07 and now the 991.2 in the nice months? You live in the sports car ...

Car Talk 4: Now with Park By Feel!

My problem with this is that California doesn't need a bigger ego, our talking heads are already way over inflated. NOBODY should be looking to California for direction, we are one of the most fucked up states out there, we just have enough tax money to make it all not fail. Also, California is fuck...

OT 17: License to Wax

Question for frequent business travelers.... Do you guys bring anything special with you on trips? I'm going to be bored out of my fucking mind for 2 weeks staying at a Best Western with a shared car with my boss that I probably won't be able to take anywhere on my own. Suggestions on things to bri...

Let’s define dangerously slow

Anything 9 or over.

Honestly, everything should be able to be in the 6's these days.... maybe the 7's.... but I wouldn't buy them, I merge too much.

The Garage at Ballz Deep

Mine doesn't hunt at all, but with the Rubicon I have 4.10 gears. Now, that POS Cherokee Trail Hawk hunted gears and never hit 9th. You drive pretty fast IIRC, and 4.10s, so I am assuming your rpms never dip below 2200 on the freeway. The 2.slow has a better low end so I am curious how it does on t...

So, after recent events and realizing how important sleep is, I bought a new bed last night. Ended up getting another Sleep Number, but this time one that raises/lowers your head/feet. Also bought a few accessories like the custom sheets and one of the temp controllers to make the bet warmer/cooler....

Everything is great on this side. Zero complaints, but 2019 is MUCH better than 2014.

Best I can do for now without trying touchup paint.
