OT 17: WELCOME TO THE CORONADOME!

Thanks guys. Honestly, I think I was closer to him than she was. She has bad memories of a controlling militant step father when she was growing up. As adults, and by the time I met him he was not too bad, but still had severe control issues. Ah, then I extend my condolences to you as well. I'm ver...

OT 17: WELCOME TO THE CORONADOME!

Been sitting on this info this morning, but after 10 months after quitting dialysis, my wife's step father passed away sometime overnight. I can honestly say that we never thought he would make it this long, but he was very tough. Initially the doctors told him he wouldn't last 2 weeks, but he quit...

Obligatory C5 Thread

I met the buyer when he was first looking at it 1/2 to New Orleans. On the way back the A/C wasn't working as well, it reeked of oil, developed some new squeaks, I was quite happy to pass it on. Ah Gotchya. So just the E30 left as a fun car ? Yeah, that was the plan, the KTM, C5 and E30 were just t...

If you aren't planning on towing more than 5k lbs, get the Taco.
Towing capability was one of my major deciding factors in getting the GMC, it handles a trailer better than the Tacoma.

Clearly 400hp is needed for that job
If the truck has to downshift to tow a 10k lb load up a 5% grade at 5k feet altitude at 80 MPH it's a piece of shit.
How did I miss this? POTD material.

I do miss having a 6' bed sometimes, but the only limitation I found is I can't haul motorcycles and a trailer.
That's it.

It can tow an E30, which is it's primary purpose.
That and being a reliable daily machine.

You keep the fridge upright, push it all the way to the front and run a ratchet strap across the top.
