  1. Cheers and Jeers for 2017

  2. New Year's Eve I was originally going to go to Boston and enjoy the festivities with a friend, but it's so damn cold it didn't seem like it would be very fun to walk around with subzero wind chills. I defaulted to the "tradition" of watching some movies at home with family and then watching said festivities on TV.
  3. Scare interns as many times as possible over the course of the day. Yesterday was 17 times. A new best.
  4. Chevrolet News:Chevrolet Unveils the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

    Silverado front end brought to you by Nissan's designers. It's got dimples! Don't like the Trailblazer Trailboss front end, maybe I'll like it better with a body color fascia.
  5. I use it because it's cool, and because 2-strokes are torque monsters by small engine standards. Also if you mix the fuel correctly you have little to no smoke. I'd have no qualms about using something like a Ryobi One+ Hybrid mower, I just have no need because I have like, six gas powered mowers to choose from in my garage, including what is considered the holy grail of engines, a 2-stroke Suzuki powered Toro Recycler.
  6. The Intrepid Project

    Shortly after getting that project done, my friend convinced me to drive out Carlisle for my first All Chrysler Nationals. I had less than a week to prepare, but little engine bay detailing was in order. . . . . . . Before: After: Next year I'll get even more done for Carlisle. At the same time I did this, I also painted the wiper cowl.
  7. The Intrepid Project

    Been a while since I posted anything in here, or much in general, so here's a tally of this years projects: In June on my way home the car got very warm near my house. I nursed it back by running the heat. Come to find out it was low on coolant. What followed was an extensive maintenance project the involved the replacement of the lower intake manifold gaskets, manifold tuning valve o-ring. coolant recovery tank, several hoses, and what columinated into the replacement of the water pump, timing belt, and tensioner. While I had things apart I also cleaned and painted some components that typically don't get any TLC.
  8. I Did a Thing

    Long time no see! The ATS is a fine machine, there's a white ATS-V around here that is always a treat to see.

    Apparently it talks now.

    Water pump #2 this year...
  11. Industry News: Bob Lutz Sees A Grim Future For the Automobile

    MAXIMUM BOOB IS BACK AT IT His fortune-telling abilities are about as credible as his insistence that climate change is a farce.
  12. The agreement was probably quickly reached after they realized, "oh crap, GM is serious and has other options if we keep being entitled little shits". I could definitely see GM winding the plant down after this mess though, and the union has itself to blame. Biting the hand that feeds you.
  13. Audi News: 2019 Audi A7 Retains the Swoopy Hatchback Look

    I don't like how Audi's grills continue to mount takeover of teh entire front end with each restyle. If that grill were split in half it'd be about perfect. Rest of the car looks, well like an A7, which is good.
