I had an aftermarket deck in my last vehicle and it had a screen that completely retracted into the dash when the car wasn't in use. The problem was, the motor that worked the screen gave out in less than 3 years and then I lost all the trick bits that came with using the touchscreen. It was beyond irritating and I was … » 4/17/14 2:54pm Yesterday 2:54pm

Didn't you know that when someone flashes their lights at you it is a gang initiation and if you respond, you become their next victim? (I read that on the internets.) Poor Prius lady was probably scared out of her wits! » 4/11/14 12:06pm 4/11/14 12:06pm

Ha! I've seen one of these trucks hauling a Model S through Phoenix and chuckled to myself at the disparity. Then I wondered if the pickups they're rumored to be developing would be capable of hauling another vehicle. And then I wondered what an electric semi would look like and how long something like THAT would take… » 4/02/14 5:44pm 4/02/14 5:44pm

I've always wondered about the people who slug it out, race after race, for not much credit. Thank you for sharing your lowlights as well as your highlights. Here's hoping your hard work pays off and you can write, in the near future, about the view from the podium. » 4/02/14 2:15pm 4/02/14 2:15pm

We own one of each and while I prefer the STI, my husband prefers the WRX for daily driving. The WRX is definitely more tame for the street but it lacks the snap that makes the STI so fun to drive. They are *similar* in power but worlds apart when driven back-to-back. We bought the STI first and I'm glad we did, if we… » 3/27/14 5:22pm 3/27/14 5:22pm

Barefoot running and specifically, toe shoes. My track and field career ended over foot-posture problems and then at the ripe old age of 34, I was starting to have problems even in my everyday life, making things like going for walks with my kids painful. On a whim I tried Vibram FiveFingers and they have been a major… » 3/26/14 12:11pm 3/26/14 12:11pm

How in the world did I not know that Arizona is a banned state? There's a storefront in Fashion Square. This never made the news when it was happening or I would have sent reams of paper to my representatives urging them to not cave into "Big Dealership." » 3/12/14 8:19pm 3/12/14 8:19pm

My only experience with used Porsches is my dad's 1977 911 which in the 20 years he's owned it has required little in the way of maintenance. This is especially surprising considering a 17-year-old me learned to drive stick on this vehicle and the transmission didn't go out for another 15 years. » 3/12/14 6:02pm 3/12/14 6:02pm

One of my favorite parts of Top Gear and also Doug DeMuro's writing is buying used cars and sharing experiences with them, in a hilarious and over-the-top manner. The continuing trials and tribulations of owning a Baja Bug in modern society are extremely entertaining as well. I really enjoyed the piece last year on… » 2/28/14 2:56pm 2/28/14 2:56pm

I was genuinely disappointed that the original ad was faked. Not surprised, but still sad. This almost makes up for it. Thanks for being a good sport considering we all got to witness the non-Hollywood version of someone being truly scared shitless. Bravo to everyone involved! » 2/27/14 3:13pm 2/27/14 3:13pm
