Ode to the Dodge Dakota

Ode to the Dodge Dakota

Ah, the Dodge Dakota. I think this truck singlehandedly brought about the “big small truck” market we’re dealing with nowadays.

But I love this truck, even if it’s irrational.

My mother came into ownership of a 1998 Dodge Dakota Sport, with the V6 and 4-speed auto. It was 2WD, and came with a truck cap. It was the first thing I ever drove. Late at night, in a grassy field, I learned how to work...

Eclipse the sun

Eclipse the sun

I’ve been digging around and I’m finding 4th gen Eclipses going for $2000 or less private-party.

God, why am I such a sucker for the Eclipse? They’re not even one of the final Eclipses with that really nice front fascia, but I still like them.

Send help.

winterlegacy thinks too much: A word wall on infotainment systems

winterlegacy thinks too much: A word wall on infotainment systems

Modern automotive infotainment systems are awful. Sure, the software might be great, and it might be the best thing ever designed - but as we all know, what we consider great now will become obsolete within 5 to 10 years. We’ve seen that far too many times to count. It’s why aftermarket radio units were made that support extra outputs and are generally better in terms of functionality than...

Finals are done

Finals are done

I have managed to finish my finals for my first semester. I feel relatively confident that I have passed.

Post practical vehicles doing fun things to bolster my confidence.

This is a STI

This is a STI

A sexually transmitted Impreza.

By sitting inside any Impreza, you have a chance of being infected with Sexually Transmitted Impreza-itis. Signs you may be a carrier involve considering purchasing Imprezas, convincing friends that Subarus are good cars, reading up on the history of Imprezas, and conversing with people who own Imprezas.

If you see friends, family, or other people close to you...

Does anyone have a high-res version of the Oppo logo? (Update: Now with icons!)

Does anyone have a high-res version of the Oppo logo? (Update: Now with icons!)

EDIT: I’ve made the Oppo adaptive icon! Well, sort of. The hackjob (for now) is to make an image that looks similar enough to my adaptive icon style. Maybe one day Nova Launcher will support 100% custom adaptive icons. For now, feel free to snag the files at this Google Drive link. If you’re handy with something like Inkscape, you can tweak the SVG file to your liking, then export it at a...

Good morning Oppo

Good morning Oppo

Well, not exactly morning for me, but there’s a couple of Oppos a few timezones west of me where it would still be morning.

Let me walk you through our license plate system.

The past couple of days are hot garbage

The past couple of days are hot garbage

Inside: complaining about petty things, after the break.

So my Droid Turbo has gotten itself locked into a boot loop that I can’t escape from. No display output, no nothing. I can’t even get to the recovery screen, so it’s bricked.

I’ve learned a hard lesson about always backing up your data.

The good thing is that a family member had a iPhone 5s in a shoebox that I could use in the meantime....

Low quality shitpost humor for your time.

Why do I like the Commander, anyways? I don’t need it and it seems like it’s not going to be a particularly good vehicle to put on winterlegacy’s next potential vehicle shortlist.

Throw more shitposts in the comments.

Weapons of mass dest-rust-ction

Weapons of mass dest-rust-ction

There’s a nice big hole in the rear left quarter of my Legacy and my inspection sticker expires soon. Time to gather up the tools and the questionable things that help make the job easier somehow.

A roll of masking tape, an electric cut-off tool with a wire brush, some foam filler, a bit of Bondo, some primer, and whatever spare rattlecan paint that’s lying around should do the job.

Hoo boy.

Alternate title: winterlegacy is lazy and waits 3-5 days to get around to posting something worthwhile

So a couple of days ago, it was warm enough that I finally had an excuse to take the old girl to the local pay n’ spray wash. It’s not #Svending by any means, but when you live the broke college student life, the simple “power wash all the dirt and grime off” is enough to make me happy.

Oops, things broke

Oops, things broke

Inside: things about collisions and very nice mid-2000s sedans that still used steel fenders.

My stepfather wound up in a collision that nobody likes to be in - making a blind turn from a turn lane while someone else is trying to turn out. Neither the driver of the SUV (I think it was a late 2000s Pilot?) nor him noticed each other until it was too late to smash on the brakes, leaving the...
