Middle of nowhere folks can have residences on 55 mph roads. Dense residential is 25 in most places :doe:

Re: Kamry XSE impressions and further updates

Look, the golf/GTI/gorf ain’t the end all be all but if you want one car to do it all it’s my preference. Great at nothing good at everything.

:wat: The rental Focus I had this winter had an awesome low seating position and fun chassis for an econobox.

We bought these last year, held 2 weeks of stuff for France nicely without being huge or heavy. The backpack works great when you're walking around airports/trainstations/cities, you can have all your crap with you but still have two free hands. https://www.ebags.com/product/ebags/mother-lode-tls-we...

Re: Gaelic Follies: Irish's Automotive Journey

Reviews indicate that it was some :derp: assembly error with a harness running under a bracket instead of over it. It'll likely be a 20 minute TSB on early cars and fixed on later ones. That is kind of disappointing, I think I would’ve preferred it to the BMW in most other respects, :word: I haven'...

Re: Johnny_P's Street Parking Palooza

Depends on the road, but yeah. I've seen areas in KY where you would need an Elise on Hoosiers to do the limit, and other areas in most states where the limit is so low that I'm in danger of falling asleep in my MKZ on ballz seasons. There is rarely much logic behind the setting of limits. I mean, ...

Northern Tool aluminum 5x8 is what I wanted to use for a kart.
750 bones and you still have to build the deck. Naw I"m good.
No rust, light weight, and you get to build it for your specific application.

I don't :truk: :doe: so keeping weight down is essential.

This model of trailer comes with a bolt on tongue. I simply replaced the bolts with hitch pins. The wiring is just another trailer connecter i wired in to disconnect.

Car Talk 4: Gayges Gone Wild

Just paid $200 to have a couple of $20 belts and a pulley replaced on the MKZ. :troywax:

I don't think I'd have wanted to do that myself even if I had a garage :doe: since the V6 is kind of crammed in there.
