    Traveling vehicle what would you buy?

    What I like may not turn out to be what you like. But I have been a Suzuki truck user since 1989, so what is that? 17 years now? I used to run them from one end of the country to another, and never had a hiccup from them. By contrast, I had a Ford Bronco from 95 to 98 1/2, and I had...

    Auto-Rx with Shell Helix Ultra?

    Can I use Auto-Rx with Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40? I recall reading somewhere that Auto-Rx works with Schaeffer Supreme, even though the latter contains some synthetic content, which is a No-no with Auto-Rx. Incidentally, the Auto-Rx treatment is destined for the fiancee's 2002 Toyota Celica...

    Have you met a woman who can really drive stick?

    Yes I have. Some of them are really good. Zero endorsements on their licence, zero contacts, zero fender benders. Zero insurance claims. Whenever I am in Los Angeles and hook up with friends there, the only one driver I have enough confidence in for me to fall asleep in the passenger seat...

    Airline Security

    The whole thing can be summed up in 3 words: "Waste of time. Waste of money." Since 9/11/2001, millions of people have been forced to waste billions of hours standing in line, waiting to be checked. The same millions of people are forced to live in fear, looking over their shoulder. All...
