  1. I can't get over the front headlights of the Rivian. Looks so goofy

  2. Totally doable considering the millions of $50,000 to $100,000 trucks GM, Ford and Ram sell. 200,000 sold a year should be easy.

  4. I'm actively shopping right now for a 1500. And I'm certainly mentally willing to work for many more years, but my body is starting to argue with that. Tow ratings around 9000 seem fine (I think my 2500HD is around 11.2K). I'm terrifically smitten by the 3.0L TD at GM, what a great powertrain via the specs. I don't like delivery. I prefer to handle it all myself. If I have to go to the store to pick the materials anyway, I might as well haul it right there. One job I got 16' Trex decking, I borrowed a trailer and hauled it myself. I'm not sure the box stores have the capacity to deli

  5. 200K plus trucks per year? At those prices??? They’ll be enormously fortunate to sell 15K in ‘21.

  6. This is awesome, always like it when they point out their own errors or false stuff that gearheads know would not be possible, but it does play for a good laugh.

  7. I was specifically only addressing your situation. I'm aware that people in apartments or without off street parking are different. As to your charger, you'd probably hardwire an outdoor safe model and hang it on the outside of the garage like a garden hose. The shortest hardwire units are generally 25" long. The eGolf people (and Leaf and Focus EV) are special use cases that only work if they have charger access at their house. The ranges for those models are simply too short to be useful except as a 3rd car in the household and it being dedicated to a specific route and chargin

  13. Most people are not aware that Braking in your auto could change starting January 1st 2021 when a no copper law goes into effect for California and Washington state in regards to brake pads. As such a R&D storm has been going on to find a suitable replacement. Copper is toxic to both humans and animals and as such, the west coast had back in 2014 passed laws giving till 2021 to replace it to meet clean water quality standards. This was led by San Francisco that was failing their water quality tests due to the high copper concentrations from brake pad dust. I had forgotten about t

  14. Seems the first 6 months of production for Rivian which will cover the Launch Edition of the R1T truck has sold out with their reservation holders. This is from June 1st 2021 to Dec 31st 2021. I wonder how many this will be? Rivian has said they will ramp up to 100,000 models of each R1T and R1S per year and higher if needed. Be interesting to see how many they deliver by the end of the 2021 calendar year. I suspect the R1S will be even more successful.

  15. @balthazar Why are you looking at chargers around your house? Those are the chargers you would never use. Unless you're eligible for Tesla Supercharging for free or some other free service, charging at public paid charging stations never makes financial sense. What you want to look for is chargers between you and long-distance destinations that you visit. Can you make it to your son's college and back on a single charge? If not, look up chargers either in-between or at his school. Those are the chargers you would use. You're not driving 300 miles a day every day unless you're doing wo

  16. When a group of car folk are together, and the talk turns to perfect body proportions, this is what starts forming in my mind while I'm waiting my turn; short frontal overhang / hood, long rear deck /overhang. [Altered wheelbase race car has both axle centers moved forward, then I digitally slid the greenhouse forward about a scale foot].

  18. Your toilet & fridge are in the same room?? I like the 'clic-lock' LVP tiles. Just did a bathroom floor after a subfloor repair, and it came out really nice. Peel & stick is very hit or miss due to commonly weak glue, plus they will move overtime, gapping.

  19. What had happened was, I was planning on ripping up my old bathroom floor (sheet goods, glued fast, big job, had to scrape, had a helper) and planning what to do next in there, but then the floor was UNDER the toilet, which needed to be replaced anyway, so now I am down to a fine finished plywood underlayment that is partially delaminated (due to a water disaster with a fridge icemaker line 16 years ago). And one toilet in the house. Was thinking of peel-and-stick tile, but I would have to replace the underlayment. Then I was thinking of thick sheet goods, which might be OK, but it has

  20. Bummed a bit as my water heater decided to take a dump ( of water). Was lucky enough to get someone to put a new on in Tuesday, so no warm water for a few days. Worried that the basement would be real bad, but it looks like I’ll just lose one panel of drywall to mold, as so far everything else is drying out nicely as we got the water up fast....still going to be quite some money though... Having a very small get together with my family, parents, and brother. To be safe, have air cleaners running, and masks can be worn if they want. I am around these folks regularly, so there is low risk

  23. Even car enthusiasts seems unaware that station wagon Cadillacs have been coach built pretty much every year since 1941. A lot of really nice creations have been built over the years.

  24. I've seen pics of this car around...the side window treatment looks very awkward..looks like they used an A-body wagon roof and rear hatch. This '72 deVille based wagon that used B-body wagon parts look better, IMO. This one was owned by Elvis. This '74 would look good w/ Escalade badges.. This Fleetwood wagon appears to have used an A-body rear roof, which looks too small and out of place, IMO..

  25. Some things in life are best left alone. I was not aware that in 1975 there were GM certified custom coach builders and as such with full warranty this 1975 Cadillac Eldorado went from the factory to the coach builder and was converted into a station wagon before going to the Cadillac Dealer and sold with full GM warranty. This is one of 2 certified Eldorado station wagons built and blessed by GM. More pictures of the interior on the link below. https://www.thedrive.com/news/37758/this-very-rare-custom-1975-cadillac-eldorado-station-wagon-could-be-yours-for-just-30000

  28. Take a time machine and you can get this awesome little 1980 truck in your color. They even sold it in Diesel. In Highschool and College, I had my dads 1976 Luv Truck in White like this one. Awesome little trucks, solid and just went. So much better than the S10 Chevrolet replaced it with initially.

  32. As stated before [and re-verified here] - the Bolt sells VERY well for a BEV; #4 in the U.S. in 2019 at 16,418 units. Model 3 is an anomaly at 159K units, #2 prius prime was 23,630, #3 model x was 19,225. #5; Model S- 14,100. I don't think that's bad at all. But if we don't highlight the propulsion, and look at the Bolt vs. same-class vehicle types, then no; 16K units isn't great. Would a kia soul be in that class (31,621 U.S. sales)?

  33. I have seen the exempt plates that government vehicles get on what is clearly personal auto's and wondered the same thing. That is odd and how do they get their personal auto with an exempt plate or commercial plate. Very bizarre.

  35. Must be market differences as my GMC dealership by me has the 1500 Sierra all around 70K. Yes Denalis, trying to find anything below a Denali package seems to not exist here where I live, did find a couple lower end models in the high 50K's north in the rural areas. I still think Rivian pricing is competitive for what you get and the tech. Lower cost units will come after the launch edition along with higher priced models. I like it, you have the vertical headlights and then the day time running strip across the front. Very visible and safe I would say.
