Now I've seen everything
Today I saw a Rolls-Royce -- not more than two-years-old, I'm certain -- with its front license plate sitting on the dashboard, under the windshield, in the manner of an old beater. -- Tegger ... 3 Aug 2010 12:35
Pant recall warning here. I buy special Stainmaster(tm) pants, so that when my Depends leak I don't have to have them professionally cleaned. My tailor called me today that said the size 52" waist trousers I bought need to come back so he can Scotchguard them. ... 29 Jul 2010 19:39
ATTN Cuhulin...and other movie fans
TCM tonight featuring movies that have no sound track whatsoever. I think it's 10PM, one of my favorties: Fail Safe. A cold war movie taken from a cold war novel, and the same book "Dr. Strangelove" was made from! Two different movies based on the same story. ... 1 Aug 2010 20:19
Dumb Question Re Hump For Drive Shaft, Or... ?
Hi, Have a 2009 Buick LaCrosse. Fairly typical front wheel drive, I would think. Question: Never thought about the hump/tunnel running between the front and rear seats. If the car is front wheel drive, and presumably the power goes (only) to the front wheels, what is the tunnel for ? It's not like in t... 30 Jul 2010 18:37

Brake lights staying on, cruise control not working
Saw two simultaneous and previously unencountered things occur today on my '89 Toyota Cressida. First I noticed that my cruise control doesn't work though the green "cruise" indicator is going on. Second, discovered that my brake lights are staying on, with all lights turned off and the vehicle off. Right now I'... 31 Jul 2010 12:56
C'mon now...how sneaky can you get?!?!?
Over the years I have seen the Ct State police use just about anything for an unmarked car, the usual Crown Vics, an occasional Chevy Impala of one vintage or another. In the 80's they used Mustang 5.0s and Mazda MX6s for undercover work. Imagine my surprise when on a work trip to Hartford today I see a car pull... 2 Aug 2010 20:18
