I was taking a shortcut on some back roads and drove past this sign. Not sure if it was still valid, but rolled the windows down and listened as we went through the area.

Why wouldn't you make the most dangerous situation one beep and the least dangerous situation three beeps so if the beeper fails mid beeps you don't signal that the situation is safer than it is.

It looks like this is still a thing with Nissan.  4 Door Sports Car

This is on one of the taillamps of a Maxima we have in the shop.

It's the way my phone takes pictures, when it is low light it amplifies everything to make it look unrealistic.  I keep the dash lights lit just enough that you can see the hash marks but not the numbers, the phone has a problem with this.

I was sitting here in Florida remembering  what 7 degrees felt like in Ohio.  I usually call my family and tell them their temp is missing a digit when I see it is that cold on the news. I had cousins that grew up in San Diego that thought "-5" degrees was "less than 5". We had to explain that it meant it was the other side of zero. Living in La Jolla they rarely saw temps below 50F.

I wish that Volvo could allow one to switch to metric so that I could feel better about feeling miserable.  5f is -15c.

Adam Brock is in the UP right now at a rally sprint, it's -39.  C or F does not matter then.

I know folks in both groups. I'm not in either, but I really don't understand the swap. That's an early car, so figure stock was 35-40hp and maybe 60tq. So you put in a twin that makes double those numbers, or you could spend way less and double the numbers on a T1 and not have to bother with adapters or and odd fabrication. I mean, I get it, do what you want to do, but coming from my brokeass background it doesn't make any sense. 
I do admire the chutzpah to do something like that to an early split window car, because F the purists.

Greetings from Cavallino Classic #31 at The Breakers in Palm Beach, FL. Beautiful Ferraris and comical "spaccones" galore, and worth the experience at least once in a lifetime, even for a non-Ferrari person like me. Annie and I are here in South Florida (SoFL? wink) to escape the New England weather for a week, so we figured why not check out what all the Ferrari fuss is about with this event. Glad we did it. I had a chance to chat with Massimo Delbo and Bruce Meyer, and we had a great lunch at the pool bar at the hotel.

Annie really isn't a car person, but she's a trooper and she tolerates my car addiction. Bless her heart. A nice lunch helped to reinforce her tolerance. smiley

Last weekend and this weekend. The older I get, the less I like this crap. Perfect placement for these after seeing the previous photos of sunshine, green grass and summer attire.

Ordered this for myself. Not an easy to get kit, because it was only available if you bought other things from the LEGO store first. Yes that's a Lockheed Vega. Yes, that's Amelia Earhart.
