      For people like me who like ugly old euro trucks, not getting stuck with a 25% tariff at customs is huge. 6,000 euro trucks end up costing 10,000 with shipping and tariffs.

      We have an 03 TDI 5 speed wagon with 230,000ish miles. It's getting a new turbo, did a fair amount of work on the transmission last year. I'd say that it is becoming an expensive car to keep on the...

      It is a Steyr-Puch Pinzgauer. Small military veh with an air cooled inline four and four wheel drive ala Tatra. Lockers all the way around. Prices seem to have stabilized in the 12-18,000 range.

      Props for someone living their dream. I'd agree that commentary while track driving was a bad call. I could tell immediately that he was in over his head. He was white knuckling it from the get go....

      As someone who currently lives off-grid with PV, a backup generator and lead acid batteries, I find this system intriguing. Lead acid batteries are a hassle, require constant upkeep and cost me...

      LE is changing, at an uneven pace depending on locale, but changing for the better. Unfortunately, these changes have been much slower than the change in how widely police are recorded and any...

      I've watched the video and dash video for this encounter. This shooting and aftermath are egregious police misconduct. With that being said, it's pretty clear that until he ran this encounter was...

      Just a thought:

      If these guys have been vocally asking for a closer venue to legally race, and if their justification was to stop illegal racing injuries and deaths, have they effectively self...

      Without the advisement it seems weak. I do think they can get manslaughter on both. Interesting case for a nonlawyer. Both drivers having a heavy electronic footprint will be used against them. ...

      I think second degree murder is a pretty aggressive charge on the Skyline driver but, he may have some 23109 prior convictions where he was advised that such activity could cause the death of...

      I'd go pre-war. Although I love the Edwardian cars I'd stick with something from the mid twenties to 1942. I love French cars and Voisins but really Id pick a Delahaye or Delage based on the...

      Wow! A few of these will be restored, the Talbot Lagos and a few others. There are some that are insanely rare but not valued. I hope someone restored the Amilcar C8. The CGSS will be restored as...

      We have on 03 Jetta Wagon TDI that we've had from new. 220,000 miles and about 44-46 mpg on average. The back seat is small but it's been fantastic. Just had the gearbox open for worn gears,...
