My Dad has worked for an Auto Paint Supply store his whole life, so I've kinda been around it in one form or another from day one. I did have all the Hot Wheels toys, and die casts, and models, etc. But as a side job, my Dad would paint cars in our garage. I'd always wander out there and see what he was doing. … » 3/05/15 9:34pm 3/05/15 9:34pm

Maybe I've just missed it, or don't remember it, but why don't we hear much about Koenigsegg on Top Gear anymore? Did anyone do a review on the Agera? Or the One:1? Or now the Regera? Or all the tech he's created and developed? I would've thought the Top Gear boys would be all over something like this. » 3/05/15 12:24pm 3/05/15 12:24pm

A guy I knew took his car into a Jiffy Lube to get the oil changed. Which they did. But during the procedure, they lost the oil pan drain plug. So, naturally, they used the next best thing; a 7/16" Dia Lag Screw. Just thread that puppy right on in there and look! No leaks! Problem solved. Always remember kids.… » 3/04/15 12:00pm 3/04/15 12:00pm

HA! I love it! This is just the confirmation I always wanted about this show. I didn't know, or think for that matter, that they big goodies were stripped after filming. But I can't say I'm surprised. But every time I watched that show (and I watched every single one of them), all I could think was "they 'upgrade'… » 2/26/15 11:57am 2/26/15 11:57am

NOT cited?!?!?! Now I can by sympathetic to the whole elderly man being in shock behind the wheel and all that, but the last time I caused an accident, I got cited. Had to go to court and everything. Why the hell does an old guy get the freebie?? Just because they feel bad? That's a bunch of crap. How about being… » 2/17/15 9:19pm 2/17/15 9:19pm

Absolutely spot on. Now, please for the love of all things automotive, explain to me the BMW naming scheme. I get that there's the 1, 3, 5, and 7 series. But what's going on with everything in between?! 328, 328i, there's L'd in there, probably some more I's, and so on. So one is base model? One is luxury trim? One is… » 10/07/14 5:04pm 10/07/14 5:04pm

Back in '03, I bought my '01 Camaro V6 and purchased an additional warranty with it through a 3rd party company. After a year or so, the catalytic converter crapped out. I scanned the code for free at autozone to double check, and it confirmed it. But I left the code in the car so the dealer could see it too. » 7/15/14 12:29pm 7/15/14 12:29pm
