    Dallas DA is nuts!!

    This is crazy. The new DA says that it is now legal to shoplift certain items. He said necessary items like milk,diapers,cereal and others will no longer be prosecuted and no arrests will happen to the thieves. If the news on TV is correct,this is going to be a mess. What happens to a store...

    Altima or Accord?

    Hi guys Starting to get the new car itch after 10 yrs. I'm looking at these 2 cars and need any experiences good or bad. I tend to hold onto cars long after they are paid for so long term reliability is important. I won't get the most loaded of either. Just basic 4 cylinder. Thanks in advance

    Changes at my local WM

    I noticed some changes today at my local WM. It seems like the oil and filter section is getting smaller with less inventory. Not just empty rows but less oil. They still have Pur filters on closeout for $2.50. I asked the mgr what they were replacing them with and he said ST. He said they have...

    gas prices jumped today

    Hi guys Gas prices jumped 15 cents today to 2.59 gal. Oil prices are still low so is it the so-called summer blend or the upcoming vacation season? It's funny gas can go up 15 cents in a day but it never goes down 15 cents a pop. I got spoiled last fall when it was 1.80 a gal.

I also like the bright red paint. Anyone have any experience with these lately? I plan on using it for 6k...
