I've had a leak at the front of my engine ('95 Miata) now for a few months. It's seemed to have been gaining speed lately, so I finally pulled off the valve cover and upper timing cover. From what I'm seeing, it looks like it's coming from the left cam seal, behind the left timing gear. » 10/29/14 1:38pm Wednesday 1:38pm

I've owned a previous rental in the past. The flip side to #5 - Rental companies typically take better care of their cars - is that unfortunately people who rent a car do not take good care of cars that are not their own. I had this Lancer for 8 years, and although it was very reliable, the interior was really beat up… » 10/29/14 10:05am Wednesday 10:05am

Good riddance. Lotus and Lamborghini are two great brands and this was pretty much a pastiche of Lambo's visual design direction. It would have been a disservice to both. Great looking but absolutely no precedence in Lotus design, and very derivative to boot. » 10/22/14 11:57am 10/22/14 11:57am

I have sort of mixed feelings about it. I don't think posting a DSLR shot is bad, but I would agree that heavily edited DSLR shots can be a bit much, especially if they are the only things that someone posts. I kind of use it as an "all of the above" option. Most of my posts are off of my phone, but occasionally I… » 10/21/14 3:49pm 10/21/14 3:49pm

Acura RSX, at least initially was disappointing to me. My stepfather had one and I wanted to drive it for years. Never got to until a couple of years ago when he passed away. It wasn't an S-Type or anything like that. Just a comfy cruiser with an automatic, but I'd followed these cars and drooled over them since they… » 10/21/14 10:59am 10/21/14 10:59am

The stripes on this SS and on the Sonic look a bit generic. These on the SS seem like they should be wider or follow the hood in some way other than just being centered. It kind of just looks like someone bought them at a parts store and stuck them on there. They don't look aggressive enough. It's a small change but I… » 10/17/14 10:01am 10/17/14 10:01am

I've been okay with pretty much doing all of this and just being respectful (use sir or ma'am). The only thing I do differently is that if I know I broke the law, I'm honest about it. It doesn't always result in a warning, but I'd say that the times I did end up with a ticket, I deserved it. » 10/13/14 2:24pm 10/13/14 2:24pm

This is a 280ZX which belonged to my mother and it flipped on the highway back in 1982. I was flung from the hatch, she went through the windshield, and we both lived. I had 3 skull fractures and now have a plate in my head covering the one that didn't heal. I'm mostly okay though. I have another one from back in the… » 10/09/14 2:37pm 10/09/14 2:37pm

Don't forget the bloodshot eyes. I looked like a stoner when I got home on Sunday from driving on the interstate in my NA. If you're not okay with looking like you got kicked in the eyes after driving at high speeds, buy something else. I'm okay with it. » 10/08/14 11:35am 10/08/14 11:35am
