Comment Of The DayYour good comments.  

Patrick George and Raphael Orlove will be heading across the country in a nearly-fifty-year-old BMW, embarking tomorrow. Wisely, they waited until the last minute to ask if anyone could provide a list of things they should bring along with them to make the trip easier.

Arch Duke Maxyenko, Shit Talk Extraordinaire has certainly been on a lot of road trips, because they delivered the perfect list of things to bring along. “Shoot, a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.”

Поздравляю. Arch Duke Maxyenko, Shit Talk Extraordinaire, you’re today’s COTD victor.

Ditching 672 Pounds Can Turn the Most Boring Car Into a Fun Time Ditching 672 Pounds Can Turn the Most Boring Car Into a Fun Time

Even the most boring little commuter daily driver hatchback can be turned into a riot of a good time by removing the weight of a particularly large Grizzly Bear. When your tiny four cylinder economy car only has to haul around 2/3rds of the car’s original weight, it can breathe a little easier and move the now lighter car...

Comment Of The DayYour good comments.  We Jalops love our manual wagons, so when BMW announced that its new generation of 3 Series will not come with a long roof in the U.S., and that its non-M models won’t have a clutch pedal , the natural response was to somehow make the company change its mind.
