      If pinstripes are your thing, why not go for the real deal? Go to a rockabilly / rat-rod show and you're sure to find a couple of stripers. Might cost you a couple hundred bucks, but the result is...

      In aviation, nothing is the ultimate anything. The A-10 is a cool airplane, but it's also 40 years old and intentionally designed with technology that was 20 years old at the time. And it's built...
    3. No, but it's going to be close to 12. Add in...

      No, but it's going to be close to 12. Add in wheels, tires, all the suspension work, and performance upgrades to justify a wide body, and the Z06 still seems like a deal.

      I had really good luck with the sylvania kit. It comes with a wipe-on clear coat with a UV protectant. Leaves a couple of streaks, but it looks fine from 5 feet. If you're really anal, you could...

      Well, that I don't have an explanation for. Because it's fun? I didn't watch the whole video. But as long as he's not putting anyone else in danger, I really don't give a damn what a guy does on...

      Not a racer, so just spit-balling here. Whenever I've seen supermotos out on a big track, they're usually using the conventional technique. If you were to hang off on the super slow stuff, though,...

      I don't know whether I'd go so far as to call it a "clunker." I work with a bunch of fighter pilots right now and they all seem to have a lot of respect for its capabilities once it's in the air. I...

      If an Elise is your dream car, I'd suggest getting one now. Two years ago, you could buy them all day long for $25K. Now they're actually starting to appreciate and pushing back up toward 30. ...
    9. Poll: How long do you plan to keep the car? Keep in...

      How long do you plan to keep the car? Keep in mind that unless you get yourself in trouble, your insurance costs are going to drop by about 50% when you hit 25. I'd say buy the car you want.

      Well, when you hot fuel an aircraft, you have a ground strap attached and someone standing by with a huge halon extinguisher. I don't think you have those at your local 7-11.

      While I agree that...
    11. If the machine can't even do the arithmetic,...

      If the machine can't even do the arithmetic, who's to say that the time and distance are correct? Sounds like reasonable doubt to me.

      Also, there's this:



      Will the officer who shows up to...

      Depends on what you call "strictly legal". There's no law that expressly states that it's allowed, but also no law that says you can't. That goes for a whole lot of things, so California (rightly,...

      I'm not a Ducati expert, but I believe you should be able to pull the head without dropping the motor. If that's the case, labor should be minimal - a couple hours tops. If you've got to the...

      Despite what Silicon Valley would have you believe, information isn't everything. You could give me the plans for a Steinway, the sheet music to the complete works of Chopin, and a "How to Play the...

      Wow. I'm amazed that people can turn friggin' headlights into some kind of moral question. If you think about it for a second (instead of just saying "turn on your lights, idiot"), it's not hard to...

      The info is pretty widely available. But just physically constructing a modern jet engine is exceedingly difficult. You're operating pretty close to the limits of the materials and any impurity or...

      Watch out for skitchers and hop-ons. You're gonna get some hop-ons.

      Great car, though. In amazing shape, too.

      Well, I guess I didn't phrase that properly. I wasn't trying to directly compare the two. What I meant is that adding a fourth wheel to the Slingshot would make it a much better vehicle that would...

      There's nothing new about these vehicles. Morgan started making a 3 wheeler in 1911:
