  1. Don't buy a gen 5. Great motor. Great transmission. Great highway fuel economy and super roomy. The rest of it sucks.

      Built Ford Tough! And by that, it means tough to work on and tough to maintain! :P

      Actually my car really isn't that bad to work on. I find most jobs aren't that bad if you know what you are doing.

      At least the parts are cheap (relatively) compared to other cars....

  2. Averaged 28MPG+ on the trip back with an average speed of 75mph... Fantastic for being fully loaded with stuff and two people! 0 extra room.

      My 02 Sable got 32 Mpg on a highway trip. Duratec has some economy in her :)

      Kevin? Going slow? LOL.

  3. In Texas this entire week! Houston to Austin/Round Rock then to Dallas! Big trip.

  4. Wow. Just found out safelite ripped me off over a year ago. Called them and you bet they are fixing it...

      You know, I think my windshield is the OEM one...

  5. Wow Pick-N-Pull now has this row 52 app that you can use online or on your phone to find every car in their inventory and a picture!

      It even gives you the VIN of the car!

  6. FedEx is a nightmare. Avoid at ALL costs.

      Yeah, I agree with you on that.

      Since I posted this I've had more issues with them. They like to lie to me too when I call them.

  7. Sister got a free 1997 Grand Marquis. Interiors torn up, but exterior is nice and mechanically nice. Working AC!

  8. FORScan has a beta iPhone/iPad/Android application right now. Everything you know and love about FORScan coming to your mobile device! Keep posted for the real release coming in the next week or two (hopefully).

  9. If anyone that has a 4S or newer wants the iOS 8 beta, I have a developer account and can get your UDID registered for $5 per device!

      Its actually extremely stable. I have had very few issues. Most bugs seem to be with apple software. 3rd party apps that I use work just fine.

    3. breeves002

      breeves002

      It's not like the iOS 7 beta app issues.

    4. DuraBull

      DuraBull

      Yup most apps work perfectly fine. This beta is actually quite refined.

  10. Time for OS X Yosemite and iOS 8!

  11. In Houston! Good drive, no problems.

      KIA = too small and my back would die. Acura = way too small and requires premium fuel for the same or lower fuel economy and needs a new tire... Sentra = YOU GUESSED IT! TOO SMALL!

  12. St. Patricks celebration in chicago = epic!

      I just got home from mine in the north suburbs. Holy s**t, what a blast.

      Lol downtown was insane!

      Went into a bar (I'm 20) and the guy stamped my hand like I was 21 lol. Was epic. Was staying in a 4 star hotel with the lady too so that was very very nice.

  13. Going to be in Chi Town from the 14th-16th. Staying on the Magnificent Mile somewhere... Someone we should meet up.

      They probably used iron in some old computers. Talking pre 1980 :P

      I got some new metal. Not sure what it's made of, either aluminum or tin. RE: Old computers. I have somewhere a Tandy 1000, complete, functions. Mostly plastic outer shell. Keyboard and "tower" are one unit. Nice key board for learning to type on.

      Ahh. I need to sell a hunk of aluminum. Anyone want a powermac G5?

      Why do you need so many PowerMac G5 Cases? Share the wealth! :P

    3. breeves002

      breeves002

      You want one? I have one in pretty good shape. Has oil on the front that needs to be cleaned off. I have TWO working powermac G5's, one case thats empty ready to be modified, and one case that has my Hackintosh in it.

    4. Angrod

      Angrod

      PowerMac G5's!!?? I would love too have one! My wallet doesn't agree though...

  17. Something I still don't understand. Every old GM truck is missing its lift gate handle. Every damn one.

    1. Brian_05_SEL

      Brian_05_SEL

      Late 2000's Escalades actually have their door handle assemblies pull off the door due to weak rivets.

    2. TaurusKev

      TaurusKev

      I think as from what I've heard, if you are referring to pickemup trucks, it's just a poor design. I heard someone say the best thing was to use the handle from a Savana/Express van to fix em. Apparently it works.

      I can say my old Savana's door handle did feel flimsy when I had it, and I didn't know when the driver door's handle would break off, but it never did.

      new gm car door handles feel flimsy....

  18. GBA Emulator for iOS 7... So many free gameboy games. LOVE IT. Supports cheats too.

      start looking for used tires

    3. JohnTaurus

      JohnTaurus

      Agreed w/Thub. Wait until spring and buy some super cheap, barely used snow/winter tires/wheels off craigslist.

    4. breeves002

      breeves002

      Yeah but the SHO summer tires cost a crap ton lol! Not many people get snow tires around here.

  20. My car is the dirtiest it's ever been. I can't wash her because she will just get dirty when I drive tomorrow....

      And maybe freeze the doors shut.

      I will not go near water this time of year.

      It's "0" here now and high of +10. No freeze the door.

      Water can wait for SPRING.

      The Escape got washed today when it was in the dealership, all the snow melted and rinsed it off. Once they put it back outside all the remaining water froze though, I had to bust big chunks of ice off of it.

      My car is in the garage during this crap thank god. It's about 10 degrees outside now but 45 degrees in the garage!

  21. Awaiting my tax return so I can pay off about half of whats still owed on my car :)

  22. Whoever hid the dump they took in my car did a really good job. I can't find the source of the stench and I'm going to go insane!

      Sounds like a good plan. I read today that Audi is unvailing laser headlights.
