I am guilty of said douchebaggery if I think about it. Just today I was driving my brother home from work (while I fix his PT Turbo in my garage) and a loaded (with 4 people) Civic zooms right past me on one of the merging lanes in the carpool lane. Well this guy (lowered with a fartcan) is driving ...

"Stop breaking the law asshole." - Nice quote 03blackrt. Depends on whether the law is perceived to be just or not. I can't say much for me since I know I drive a bit, well, reckless at times to say the least. However, I can say that my mom, who had a perfect driving record, never fails to completel...

I hate crap!

So I just got my new car the other day. Okay, it's not "NEW", but it's a nice car. 1998 Lexus GS300, high mileage (like 145K), but before I lost the Neon due to wrecking it a few months back, I had been into I6 Toyota's and know how dependable the 2JZ-GE motor is. So I take a couple hours to clean t...

Hey everyone. Since I wrecked my car some 2 months ago now, I am in the process of looking for a car.

I officially let the car go earlier today. I looked into the crushed engine bay and found what I THINK were cracks in the lower half of the manifold and maybe even the cylinder head.

I finally contacted the tow yard to ask about releasing liability. They said they can pull what I would like from the car that isn't too labor intensive. Whatever is left from the HID's would need a minimal amount of labor, as would pulling the radio. I would still need to pay the yard $200 for stor...

You're probably all correct. In that I shouldn't be cocky about it, and just move on. It's a vent more than anything.
