      Not when one of the vehicles is both stationary and unoccupied. Not too hard to determine who's at fault in that situation...

      Anyway, the guy probably just wants your dad to get a quote for...

      I actually think man-trans will outlast slushies. Long after everybody else has gone electric, you will still be able to buy a Lotus 7 derivative with a real gearbox.

      There are no overpowered cars, only inadequate chassis, suspensions, and tires.

      People don't laugh at the gramophone, telegraph, zeppelin, and any number of other outdated, but otherwise perfectly good inventions. If the people of the 22nd century are going to laugh at anything...

      This. So much this. We used to call a participation trophy the Wanker's Cup, and its winners were the object of much derision.

      Neither of those choices will accommodate a rear-facing child seat, unless one of you is comfortable sitting with the front seat as far forward as it will go. Other than that, you want a sedan over a...

      What you describe sounds more like a free-market to me. How come when it comes to easily-replaced fast food employees, they get paid market value, but when there's a labour shortage in the oil patch,...

      I have an old KZ750 and an RD400 sitting in my basement that someday I'll find the time to rebuild and restore. The KZ has sweet Mikuni 45mm smoothbores, but the timing chain broke, so it's a bit of...

      Go spend 6 months in Europe. Start in Spain, and slowly work your way toward Prague. If you still want to get back together with her when you return, immediately board a plane for Buenos Aires, and...

      I don't know how it works in the US, but up here, you're usually better off leasing if you get a new car every 3-4 years. When you buy, you pay tax (12% here in BC) on the full purchase price (less...

      Hmmm. I guess not. I know it's a cartoon, but it in that video that the tread base is applied after all the sidewall plies, and after shaping.

      The sidewall cover and tread ply are applied as one piece, but the structure of the sidewall is already there.

      The only difference with an airless tire such as the one in the OP is that you can't...

      Tires are far from completely moulded in one shot. If they were, they would cost about $20. They are built in many, many thin layers of different composites, followed by a tread layer, which is then...

      I used to commute daily on an old Kawi H2. My hours were 6AM-2PM, so traffic wasn't too bad, but being Montreal, it was always busy, and the potholes are there 24/7 anyway, which was the greatest...

      The sidewall obviously would not be a safety feature of these tires, so there is no reason one couldn't be bonded to the tire after the fact. You could conceivably mould one sidewall at the same time...
