      I agree that this is probably happening, but I don't think it's sustainable. I would make the comparison to being an ebay seller (with the key difference being that on ebay, the sellers set their own...

      This still makes no sense. In a profitable business, all costs are passed along to the consumer, period. If Uber sets the prices and the driver pays the expenses, then Uber is going to have to set...

      Uber does provide some type of insurance that's supposed to cover drivers during the time they're carring Uber passengers. Things may have evolved, but the last time I looked into this, Uber's...

      That may be absolutely correct. But Uber is not sustainable if it's a bad deal for the drivers. My main thesis here is that the reason why Uber seems so great is that we're currently getting...

      I have heard that rumor. Since Uber isn't publicly traded, there aren't any official numbers. If they really are losing money on that scale, then, well, there's the answer to my question. And it...

      What I'm saying is that someone provides a car. The car is kind of a key part of the taxi business model :P Just because the driver provides the car doesn't mean the car is free. Someone still has to...

      This makes no sense, though. Just because the driver "assumes" a cost doesn't mean the cost goes away. From the perspective of the customer, someone in the chain is still paying those costs. So if...

      Here is my question about Uber that nobody has ever been able to answer to my satisfaction: How do they make the numbers add up?

      If someone told you they would sell you a new car that's equal in...

      This probably has a carbureted 307 in it. I had that setup in my 1990 Electra Estate Wagon and it was finicky to say the least. My Pontiac has the carbed 305, and it was never as bad as the 307,...

      Philly has a lot of Suzukis too. They sold a ton of Suzuki-Daewoo Forenzas in this area. One of my neighbors still has a Forenza, and I see various Suzuki models pretty often. Judging from what I...

      I never thought this topic would generate so much interest. Thanks for all the opinions. I do like the "Candid Camera" idea, but that's a little more time and money than I want to spend on this :P

      Yeah, this is what I was afraid of. I think for now, I'll just hang onto the phone number, and if I see any more evidence that someone is still looking for the car here, then I'll try giving them a...
    13. Got a repo notice for a car I don't own. Ignore it?

      Today I found a yellow tag stuck to the front door of my house, saying that someone is trying to repo a 2008 Honda Accord from my address. I don't own the car or know anything about it. The name on...

    15. Identify this car: 25-year-old surveillance footage edition

      They're working on this over at Jalopnik, so I thought I would throw it up here. These images are from 1990 security video footage related to the largest art theft in history. We're looking at the...

      I remember when that Olds was posted here awhile ago. This was the last year that Olds used wire wheel covers where the spokes are truly chrome-plated and not just stainless steel. The outer dish is...

      I don't think Hillary is really capable of being any other way. She has all the poll-driven pandering of Bill, but without the communication skills. And I say that as a registered Democrat. The one...
