    Rear End nightmare

    Last winter the rear diff on my 2007 Mustang GT started whining, got worse over the course of a couple of months so I bit the bullet and took her into the local Ford dealer. They wanted $2600 to rebuild the diff, I said your nuts. Went to a local trans shop and they said $2400 for a...

    STIHL blower 23 year review

    Many of those fancy websites have 30 day and 1 year reviews. Today I started up my Stihl BR400 for the 8 millionth time (not sure, just guessing).

    Clip On rear view mirror

    The rear view mirror in my Mustang has some weird corrosion going on all around the edge on the glass part, it does not impair my visibility but it looks like crap. I absolutely will NOT remove the part where it connects to the windshield, I don't need the hassle. I thought about trying to buy...
