I'd be more worried about stopping.

RE: RE: Car Talk 1: FF vs. MR vs. FR vs. VTEC

As long as it runs you'll get at least $2k for it private party. A Mister 2 isn't that much money is it? MR2 or similar sports car won't happen until :poorvette: goes away, 2+ more years. I'd have a hard time giving up the cargo space of the vibe. Everything is a compromise. I really just want 5 ve...

Winter tires

Johnny on mine I went with the base wheels I bought used from a forum bro and did the stock tire size for winter. Was way no issue. I wasnt nailing the Alps snow boarding every weekend and I was happy. I used the Limited rims for summer and these STi base rims for winter. I like the look of the car...

Car Talk 1: FF vs. MR vs. FR vs. VTEC

Winter is way more mild than it was when I was a kid. I feel old saying that but its true. The days of the Halloween snow storm are long gone. Philly gets maybe 3-5 decent snowfalls a year anymore with typically 1 or 2 being rather intense. Only takes 1 small accident to thrash yo new ride! Winter ...

I don't live in Manayunk doe. Actually. The hardest hill I have to take in the snow is on S. Broad St where it crosses under I-76. That's like a solid 6' hill.

I think there's a pretty solid chance the Earth Destroyer will be turned into steel to support either shipbuilding or the oil industry. That would be so ironic and great.

Likely about $1000 in 3-4 years at this rate. Anything I'd want to replace it with is :waxer: so it ain't happening for a long time.

A Mister 2 isn't that much money is it?
