I just learned my Mom had a CR-X until shortly before I was born

I just learned my Mom had a CR-X until shortly before I was born

That bitch, how dare she not save it for me in a climate controlled garage.

She says she got rid of it because the sunroof got left open in the rain and they could never quite get the musty smell out of the car afterwards.

Also turns out my uncle had a bright orange Opel GT and a Chevelle with shag carpeting in the 70's.

These SFF Compaqs are kinda nice

These SFF Compaqs are kinda nice

They’re pretty cheap on eBay too. My brother is looking for a desktop and I think I might pick one up and lightly upgrade it. What do we know about these? Is it a standard motherboard layout or some weird proprietary thing?

Can we put all the Defender posts into one big discussion thread please?

How am I supposed to view all the kwality shitposts that I come here for when they’re buried by a torrent of New Defen-derp posts?

Same can be said about the bucktooth 4-Series posts.

Having a weird tech issue that literally can't be googled.

Having a weird tech issue that literally can't be googled.

So, like, my desktop has been getting shit internet lately. Speedtest says I have 2mpbs download and 6mbps upload, with the connection dropping out occasionally and requiring me to manually reconnect to the network. My laptop, sitting in the same location with the same signal strength, manages a rock steady 50 down and 10 up.

This hasn’t always been the case, the desktop was blazing fast until...

Why hasn't there been a Wrangler edition Jeep Wrangler yet?

Why hasn't there been a Wrangler edition Jeep Wrangler yet?

It’s the most natural crossover matchup ever! Call it the Wrangler² and upholster it in denim. If we can get a goddamn Levi’s AMC Gremlin surely we can make this happen.

Welp, guess I'm doing a $70 spark plug change.

Welp, guess I'm doing a $70 spark plug change.

About a year ago I got a misfire in the same cylinder. The plug was fouled and had to be replaced. Now I gotta borrow a compression tester to see if I’m losing the piston rings. Goddammit.

I don’t with what wizardry they manage it but Petrolicious simply does the best audio capture of any of the car shows.

Risks of buying a used laptop

Risks of buying a used laptop

Batteries are completely shot. The two of them together have a lower full charge capacity than either of them did when new. Gives me just an hour and a half of juice running on a full performance power profile. I can watch the battery percentage drop in real time.

Oh well. A replacement for Battery 2 is $40 online so even after that this was still a great price for the machine.

On the topic of "fun" cars

On the topic of "fun" cars

OK bear with me, I’m half seeking advice and half just rambling.

Part of the reason I’ve never picked up a second car is that I would have nowhere to keep it. I only have one parking spot available to me. That will be changing in a few months, and if I’m good about saving I can probably budget $3-4k for a second car by the time I get my next tax return. So that begs the question, what the hell...

Book Time!

Book Time!

I just wanted to share with y’all one of my favoritest and most well loved coffee table reads, North American Railroads by John Taylor (ISBN 0-517-05397-7). It’s full of hundreds of beautiful archival photos detailing not only the trains but the lives of the people who built, worked, and rode on the great American railroads of yesteryear.

This book went to print in 1991, so a good portion of...

For sale: One Thinkpad, Gently Loved

For sale: One Thinkpad, Gently Loved

I’m going to give you goobers first crack at it before I *shudder* try to sell it on eBay or Facebook. It functions perfectly and only shows minor cosmetic wear.

My needs for a laptop have changed, and this one was never what I thought I was ordering anyways as the seller was a bit deceptive. The ad never mentioned what screen it had but the pictures showed what looked like a little Nvidia...

If you can figure out what car this picture is of, I'll give you a prize

Frankly I'm surprised it's even in frame, considering I waved my phone at it and blindly jabbed at the screen without taking my eyes off the road.
