      I'm going to say that it is probably best to avoid the GMT400. My least favorite feature is the scary inadequate brakes. Maybe a 2500 with Hydroboost brakes would be OK.

      In this price range, a...

      As much as I like my 2006 Pathfinder, the back seats are small. We have a 3YO in a bulky Britax seat in the middle seat, middle row. We regularly have two adults in the middle row with him and it is...

      For me, it is the lateral float. The reason I stuck with Crank Bros for so long is that I need that float. My feet don't align with my knees correctly. I messed my knees up pretty bad in high school...

      Normally I would say that there is a serious learning curve and that it gets better if you stick with it. But, knowing your road background, you are very familiar with clipless pedals. Personally, I...

      Looking at it, I would have thought it would be too small for someone your height. Ride it around a bit more and get used to it. It may just be different from what you are used to, rather than too...

      My shop is not very photogenic. Way too much junk and too busy to organize/clean up. Someday I will try to get some decent pics. Right now I need to keep customers (and my 3 year old son) happy.

      Short (8.5 miles, 1200 feet) dirt ride with a bit too much mud. Did some trail clearing. Just nice to be out again.

      I bought a set of used chrome VX-1s for my Mk3 Jetta. Found out they were bent the first time I hit the freeway. Returned them and went back to my stock GT 14" wheels...

      The Toyota Koolaid is strong in this thread. Well, I guess that is just a reflection of general opinion. They do have a bigger following, but the F150 is the best-selling truck. Does that mean Fords...

      This is why Toyotas are so popular. Everybody can forget certain failures of Toyota like the 3.0 V6 of the late 80s and early 90s that had a very high rate of failure. (Here come the excuses) Frames...

      I lost this boy on January 5. He was hanging out with me while I worked on the lathe. Suddenly he let out a sad meow and fell over dead. He was only 8 1/2 years old. He was supposed to live for a few...

      Fords 3" of water, becomes internet hero. Everything looks pretty passable in the average car. I could have been a legend if I had taken pictures of what I did in my 1980 Jetta. Of course, my Jetta...

      Considering that Dukes of Hazzard destroyed over 250 Chargers, I shouldn't be too upset about this one, but I still am.

      This is one car that should have been left alone.

      My home! I know a couple guys who work at Zero. I have done a little bit of machining for them too.

      Stop black plate abuse! Inappropriate on modern cars. They look ridiculous on anything post-60s. They should only go on vintage cars.

      Modern retro-look cars may be acceptable.

      Almost nothing is worth skipping Yosemite if you have not been there before. There are other amazing natural wonders in CA, but not much matches Half Dome and El Capitan, let alone the valley.
