Not quite what they had in mind for this category...

I hear you guys like Mazdas, small trucks and all things cheap.

A little beat and doesn’t start, but with any luck it’s something easy to fix. These things are fairly basic, so it probably won’t take much, but who knows TBH...

Any Android experts in the house? Any Android experts in the house?

I just picked up a cheap Galaxy S5 for use mostly as a media player, particularly when traveling (replaceable battery, 256 MB SD card capability and ability to output via HDMI). It’s running 4.4.2 and there doesn’t seem to be any updates available. Are there any newer OS versions available, and if so, do I really want…

I don’t know exactly what's in here, but digging through it will have to wait.

Not too bad, only buying a Matchbox car and a brochure. I just love the drawings in these old brochures.

Had a boss that let me borrow her FC convertible all the time. No torque, but a sweet ride.

What's for dinner, Oppo? What's for dinner, Oppo?

I’m going for meat overload at a local Yugoslavian/Bosnian restaurant. At least I had a salad first, but I sense that I’m in trouble..

A little good news for a change A little good news for a change

I just got off the phone with my surgeon. She reviewed the chest CT scan (the above is just something found via GIS) and found no evidence that the cancer has spread to my lungs, or anywhere else for that matter. Surgery will be sometime in early February, and then I can (hopefully) put this behind me. I’m tired of…

I finally figured out what that plastic cladding is for on CUVs I finally figured out what that plastic cladding is for on CUVs

When you can’t figure out what the yellow lines are for it gives the poor sap parked next to you, the one parked properly, somewhere to rest their door whilst they squeeze into their vehicle without damaging the paint on either one.  Brilliant foresight on the part of the designers.

Need frame recommendations  Need frame recommendations 

I don’t know if it was the WD-40 or the bigger, properly sized screwdriver, but the old plates and rusty frame have finally been removed and I no longer have to worry about getting pulled over for expired tags. Now I just need a new frame, but it won’t be a steel one like I had previously, for obvious reasons. Any…

Why? Why?

One thing I love when it comes to cars is station wagons/estates/shooting breaks/etc. One thing I hate on cars is fender skirts.

Time works a little differently in Montauk, with their 6-day weeks and such...

Why, Missouri, why? Why, Missouri, why?

They couldn’t just give me new tags. No, they had to give me new plates, and they applied the tags to the plates before giving them to me. I tried removing the plates today, but all I did was damage the head on one, and then pinched my hand several times as the pliers slipped off. I tried soaking them in WD40,…

I found a possible deal on a 1st model for $100, but it doesn’t have a controller. Can I use a controller from a 360? What are the various models and what does each one bring to the table? I pretty much want to play the latest version of Forza and not much else.

Just my luck... Just my luck...

My left colon is the part with a huge number of polyps which result in my getting an annoying attack of diverticulitis every year or two, yet it’s the right colon that has the tumor and will be the side removed. Even after all this I’ll still be plagued with diverticulitis for the rest of my (hopefully long) life...
