Why Not? [Update] Why Not? [Update]

Today my current obsession has me looking into buying a frozen motor for a car I don’t own. At $100 I am thinking why not? I want to get a Bellett, LUV, and/or rwd I-Mark, so this may or may not ever be useful.

Obbo Can I Have $2,000? Obbo Can I Have $2,000?

What started as a love for Belletts has also become a desire for a rwd I-Mark.

Why is the Tire Pressure so High Why is the Tire Pressure so High

I’ve never seen higher than 32 psi on a tire pressure tag. Are newer cars running higher pressures for better fuel economy? Is this a common thing for low profile tires? What are your experiences?

I put my car back together yesterday evening, but then the car alarm started going off at 4 am last night. I turned the alarm off; it went off again; I unlocked the car; it went off again. I ended up disconnecting the battery.

Mini Campers Mini Campers

I saw a couple ridiculously cheap Toyota mini campers on CL the other day, so now I am looking again. I wonder what kind of fabrication work it would take to turn one into a tray back truck, since their is no back on the cab?

Reposting for the afternoon crowd. My friends are supporting this bad idea and I got approval from the wife. The odds of the frame being saved by the mud are low. [I called after work. I am 4th on the list. The 1st guy already flaked, so I am 3rd on the list?]

Good Morning; Cars That Are Coffee Good Morning; Cars That Are Coffee

Apparently Nissan had an Espresso Black paint which looks like a very dark brown / black with some brown in it. Also, there is the awesome Suzuki Cappuccino. What other cars are coffee related? I think their was another Espresso that I had in Grand Tourismo 2 or Grand Tourismo 3.
