      It's about money, but not the party aspect so much. Just alumni money. The whole frat legacy thing is a big deal to people. Well-connected alumni donate because of the frat connections they made...

      The center rollers go bad on the LX, too, but you can just force them closed, and the part is cheaper and can be installed in minutes instead of hours since there are no drive cables to worry about....

      If I were buying with the idea of something that could be kept running indefinitely: I would absolutely not buy some complex german SUV. :laugh: Land Cruiser 75 would be good but we can't get those....

      About a '66 or '67 Pontiac Le Mans. Not a Tempest/GTO closter, they had more gauges.

      Yup. CNY only gets hit when the wind comes from the northwest across Ontario. Since this system was coming out of the west-southwest when it hit NY, Ontario's lake effect all hit the Tug Hill.

      Somehow Syracuse missed all of it. Buffalo got hammered, Watertown got hammered. Gotta love lake effect.

      And that's still ahead of where China is, relatively.

      Korea, too, had nice-looking Giugiaro-designed cars before they ever managed US exports. The Hyundai Pony looked great even though it was an...

      Because it would be. There's no history of racism and subjugation keeping white kids out of college. The whole goddamn world is a pro-white organization.

      It's not! That's the point. It's a weird marketing notion that wagons have to be AWD and raised. A proper wagon isn't raised. An A4 Avant is a proper wagon.

      And yeah I'm throwing "proper" wagon...

      It's the old -a vs. -er thing. And I'd bet his private school friends aren't the type to throw around the -a version anyway.

      We might slap our forehead at how obvious this seems, but you know, I...

      No one does cadmium plating anymore. What you're looking for is a zinc chromate coating.

      The JDM Y32 Gloria is basically exactly that. Same chassis as the J30 but with lots of straight lines and a glassy pillarless hardtop roofline.

      It competed with the GS300, not the LS400. And it was a pretty underwhelming car. They basically took a Y32 Gloria and melted it until it was an ugly bar of soap with a cramped interior.

      "Contact patch" is a nearly meaningless notion. Tire grip and how it relates to tire size is mind-bogglingly complex.

      All that matters for the OP's question is, whether you go narrow or wide, try...

      Yup, that is the beginning and end of my opinion of pinstripes on a modern vehicle. Either a shady used car dealer slapped them on a salvage car to draw the eye away from misaligned/wavy body panels,...

      This is a GT-R. The wide rear fenders are hard to fake. Looks like it's running narrow snow tires. Someone swapped on a wingless trunk and didn't paint-match it.

      There are a surprising amount of...
