    Subaru Outback Wilderness

    A little heavy on the plastic on the outside, but the interior looks good. I wish it wasn't a CVT, but otherwise it looks like a really cool SUV.

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    Planning on seeing it on Saturday with my family. I really don't like King Kong, nor was I a huge Godzilla fan, but it's been a long time since we've been able to go to a theater and watch a movie, so I'm all in.

    C8 Daily Driver

    Nope, I wouldn't. I'm too tall to fit comfortably, unless they've increased the room in the C8.

    Truck in shop closed by Covid

    There's nothing to worry about, especially if they're closed for multiple days. The virus will only live on surfaces in a car for a few days, depending on the surface. If she's still very worried about it, there's way to sanitize the car that can be easily found online, as well as in the first...

    Pretty cool read!

    No Compass, What the heck ??!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fun compass fact: The compass in the MD-80 was installed behind the co-pilots head, requiring the use of tiny mirrors to read the compass. Also, if you looked at it dead-on, the writing would be backwards, so as to look correct in the mirrors.

    CPO Vehicles

    You'd also be surprised at how little follow-up is done with a car. If a Sales Manager pays to have a car detailed, it gets taken to the back, the detailer does his thing, then takes it right back out to the lot. In a lot of dealerships, no one will even look at the work that was done. If the...

    CPO Vehicles

    Truthfully speaking, CPO is really just an extended warranty in most cases. Some dealers will go above and beyond, and it sounds like yours did, but that's more the exception and not the rule. I've seen many cars that we were going to CPO just get labeled as such and put on the lot. Normally...

    Jeep Grand Wagoneer

    I was so excited about the Grand Wagoneer coming back, and then I heard the price. Honestly, if I had that much laying around for a new vehicle, I'd just buy a restored GW instead. I'm sure the technology and comfort will be incredible in the new model, but the old one is a classic for a reason.

    Apollo Missions in Real Time

    Awesome stuff. The Apollo missions have always been a favorite study topic of mine. The bravery put on display by the early astronauts is something I'll never understand/comprehend.

    Taking off from Santa Ana (SNA) - wooo that was fun.

    Takeoffs out of SNA (John Wayne) are always a bit of a roller coaster, but it's really not about runway length. The takeoffs are performed that way in order to adhere to noise abatement rules that Orange County has put in place. Airlines can get fined if they don't perform that hot rod roller...

    Spacex explodes on landing....again

    Really, really cool. They'll get the kinks worked out, no doubt. I do love what Musk/SpaceX are doing.

    Tesla Model 2, a $25,000 Tesla

    Except for the problem where they admitted to designing the tablets in such a way as to not expect it to last beyond 5-6 years, which is why they are being asked to issue a recall by the NHTSA. I myself am under 35 and appreciate the bold design and technological leap. However, there's a big...

    Tesla Model 2, a $25,000 Tesla

    Frankly, I'm not sure that they could have any more manufacturing issues building this thing in China versus stateside, so I'm not sure that's going to be a problem. I like the looks of it, for sure. It being a wagon makes it even better, in my book. Now all they need to do is not run...
