    Older car daily drivers

    I had an '88 wagon. Simply wouldn't quit, even after a few incidents. The major issue was oil consumption after Mr. Oil Change (looking at you, @redhat , you know the place) didn't bother to screw on an oil filter properly. Donated it to Goodwill here in SW Ohio in 1997 and they remarked...

    You didn't burn the sprouts at all. They need char. Looks amazing.

    Hot pepper/pepper sauces

    Being from Buffalo, I only allow Frank's in my fridge. I don't hate Tabasco, and when Cholula is the only option, I'm down with that also.

    Another battery bites the dust...

    My friend had an Accord of your generation and went through batteries just like you, but in Ohio. The dealer told him it was a common issue on that particular car.

    Spotted a very old car at an Express Oil Change shop today

    There's no way that's some random person.

    Done With Glocks

    Stupid non-gun owner here (but interested, and have fired many of my friends' guns): What's meant by a "stovepipe?"

    Doug DeMuro - Quirks & Features

    He's goofy but I've gotten over that. I love the oddball/older cars. Don't care about the exotics. The Buick Reatta and Isuzu Vehi-CROSS are good.

    Honestly... no one at the dealership noticed that?

    My previous indy mechanic showed me a gauge cluster out of a Ford Taurus, that had a drill hole in the side of it. Whoever worked on it prior, drilled the wire for the engine light so it didn't illuminate.

    It came from my shower drain. Do not read while drinking hot coffee.

    I lived with my in-laws for a week in early 2012. The shower I used barely drained. Ran my barbed pipe cleaner wand down there, and pulled out the exact same amount of hair and filth. Drain was fine after that.

    How to find a longer wearing tire

    I owned (still maintain) a 2008 Pilot. If I got 40k out of tires, it was a good run. Just the nature of a heavy SUV, perhaps. I'd on the side of better tread and softer compound vs. long mileage.

    Ask for Silent Stop pads at any of these locations. I'm super happy with them:

    Disc brake pad slap in the rust belt - can't be done

    By "not a lot," that price indicates NONE. If the rotor gets brake cleaner, I'd be surprised.

    Number of Spare Magazines You Consider Adequate?

    I saved every Sports Illustrated from 1988 through 1995. Got rid of all those when we moved. Still kept one; @redhat would probably know which one.......... The one with Everson Walls on the cover. January 1991. Whoops. I thought this was a magazine bad! I'll go now.
