    3. Poll: A lighter and simpler car would enrich my life,...

      A lighter and simpler car would enrich my life, that was my perspective. A new car comes with a warranty, better mileage, etc., no one buys a new car JUST for safety, though it is obviously a selling...

      Seems like a shame to go all retro like that and then have to plug it in, but I like period-correct so I'll chalk the feelings up to the Luddite inside me...

      Perfect illustration of why I don't drive behind garbage trucks, scrappers, landscapers, loaded flatbeds, etc., even if they secure everything all it takes is a bad knot or big pothole to send...

      Good point about the motorcycles, didn't think of those in this context :thumbup:



      Nope, I'm talking a normal car that could have things excluded based on you signing a paper

      Forester: ancient suspension that needs an update, trans is clunky and both locks too aggressively while also hating to downshift, the rear wheel bearings need replacement when doing the suspension...
    11. Poll: Would you sign away safety for a cheaper, lighter vehicle?

      So, let's say all of the sudden that our country tells all the lawyers and potential plaintiffs to pound sand, and that there can no longer be any frivolous lawsuits. People are officially...

      Finally saw Fargo about 18 years too late, it was entertaining but I don't get the ridiculous hype that surrounded it, sure the accent was cute and everyone was a good actor but The Big Lebowski is...
