@davesaddiction - Torch is calling his lawyer, from a Kyocera pay-as-you-go phone, in his Nissan Pao in a Wendy's parking lot, demanding royalties from Ford at this very moment.
So, my buddy who wanted to buy the RHD Hilux Surf... (Now with more pics)
The mad lad went and put his money where his mouth is.
He took delivery this morning. Diesel, manual, 4x4. And it has a mini disc player, which I didn't even know was a thing for cars to have.
RE: Next Level OCD
@old-busted-hotness Correct firing order is 1-3-4-2. You're gonna have balance issues and 2nd-order harmonics to tune out now.
... why the hell not?
I know how you're *supposed* to read it...
I LIKE I LIKE HER HIS BUTT BEARD

@streetsofperth said in Look at this self-absorbed piece of shit:
Completely blocking the pavement. I could walk around, but what if I'd been elderly and had a mobility issue or been in a wheelchair? To borrow from George Costanza: we're living in a society here!
When George Costanza becomes the voice of reason, especially as a counter-point to someone being a selfish prick, you know we've absolutely failed as a society.

Read somewhere that Mexico is in talks to enter BRICS, so, might be a Mexican dignitary delayed on their way to Russia?

@MisterButtercup Austin, TX but San Marcos or San Antonio wouldn't be terribly out of the way either.
A clean slate, an empty garage - What Would Oppo Do?
I find myself currently without a stable form of transportation, and burdened by an abundance of options. I've been car shopping for so long now that I literally just spin out thinking of possibilities, so I'm soliciting opinions - WWOD (What Would Oppo Do)? Be practical, be ridiculous, I don't care, just throw me ideas. No need to post links to actual vehicles, btw.
- Firm $25k budget; the further under-budget, the better
- NEED two four-wheeled vehicles; no cycles (sadly)
- Will have one student driver in the household; one beginner-friendly option would be appreciated
- Reliability is a BIG PLUS for both vehicles - I'd like at least one car I can wrench on easily, but not out of necessity
- "Newer" is not necessarily "nicer"; I'm cool with stuff from 80s-90s as long as they aren't a full-on resto project
- At least one manual transmission
- Regularly carry three passengers, occasionally carry four (all with backpacks)
- Would prefer at least one SUV or wagon
- Ability to occasionally tow a small trailer is a plus but not necessary
- Some measure of light off-road/bad weather capability is also a plus
- Generally within the Austin/San Marcos/San Antonio area of Texas, but anything from a southern US state would be fine
This is stupid and i feel stupid posting it. If you care to indulge me, please accept my gratitude. Thanks in advance for whatever you post.

@Turbineguy-Nom-de-Zoom it'll look like an egg shaped 2013 IS250
So like a 2012 HS250h?

@FutureOppo Did they ever get self-driving cars figured out? or did Skynet happen?
RE: Grilled cheese
@Longtime-Lurker Butter on the pan sides only, just cheese in the middle. Also, multiple cheeses, if possible - the toasted bread is just a vehicle for the cheeses to enter my body.
RE: Grilled cheese
@TheHondaBro Nah, it's just emulsified oil, so it's not too far off from butter. Adds a slightly different flavor, but doesn't taste like mayo once it's grilled.
Probably better on a more flavorful bread like a sourdough. I've only ever had it on white, and it's not bad, but I prefer butter in that case.
RE: one of these things is not like the other
@jminer I've seen maaaaybe a handful of Rivians on the road, and... i dunno, they present as a smaller vehicle to my eye. Like Tacoma-sized, based on what I've seen in press and review videos. My perspective might change if i saw one up-close, but seeing the HxWxL dimensions next to the Hummer... yeah. it is clearly not small.
In fact, the Hummer EV is larger in all dimensions than the Hummer H2, which by today's standards is enormous. That makes the Rivian damn near as large.
