  1. In today's world probably Tor Browser seeing all the nasty crap that goes on there. (drug trading, human trafficking, etc)
  2. Is that why you like GMC vans Kevin?
  3. Transmission by Bic, as I recall. Something about shifting performance being roughly equivalent to moving a baseball bat in a barrel full of coconuts.
  4. Factory Centi's provide the best factory light output on a Gen 4. Not that that's saying much.
  5. At some point I'm going to need an oscilliscope, my other LD player needs a laser tweak and servo adjustment, and to get it to Pioneer specs they expect you to have one. Sadly I saw some at the thrift store a few months back, but I wasn't looking then.
  6. Haha Kevin, mine does more than yours. Got that at the thrift store this morning.
  7. I didn't realize at first, I just grabbed the unleaded nozzle. Then I noticed the car was running like complete crap, then I saw the 85 sticker. Apparently it worked better in carbeurated cars. Of course the gas companies love being able to sell 85 for 87 prices.
  8. Utard is 85-88-91. I ran 85 when I first got here and Holly about died, poor girl.
  9. You don't see a lot of Gen 4's in SGM with Centennials. As for the rear, AZ plate and Gen 4.5 tails on a Gen 4 help too. Plus my tint isn't Utah spec, so that helps. Hence why the car will stay registered in AZ.
  10. "Premium" here is 88, it's about $3.10 a gallon. Of course, back home 87 is about $2.40.
  11. I've done both lol. For me, the electronic throttle is too touchy, and it feels too closed in (yeah, new vehicle blues, it does have curtain airbags).
  12. Also a tank. My parents hit a deer in theirs and by and large the damage was modest. I wouldn't own one personally though, I don't like the driving dynamics.
  13. Depends on how well it was done. http://youtu.be/I6iksKTURlA?t=20s This was still drivable afterward.
  14. Well, that gen Expy is twelve years old in some cases, plenty of depreciation for XLT and fleet models to have ended up in the JY by now. Still though, I haven't seen any of them, nor Five Hundreds. Never seen a SHO either. Sam saw a 2013 Escape in the JY the other day, complete total with at least a serious passenger injury from the biohazard stickers. He said if it hadn't had the badge he couldn't have seen the model.
  15. You just have to wonder what they cheaped out on that will come back to kill you a few years down the road. Though on the subject of the Malibu, I pulled up next to one at the light today. With the pedestrian rules these days, the lowest front part of the hood on the Malibu was still higher than the highest part of my hood. Add in that terrible grille design and it's no wonder they look like squatty Silverados in the rear view mirror.
  16. Federal Mogul designed a new one-piece plug for the 5.4L which helps the breaking issue, BTW. Not entirely alleviating it but it is better.
  17. Don't go to New Mexico. Seriously, those have to be the worst drivers in America. Any time a car did something stupid in southeast AZ, you were guaranteed to see it had an NM plate.
  18. So, like the first movie, the Gen 4 makes an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But...its entirely CGI. The entire scene. So I guess it's the first time the Taurus has been completely rendered in CGI in a film? And someone wasn't too good, because they forgot to render the reverse light portion of the tails.
  19. I thought Vic devotees hated the '92's Taurus front end...
  20. I want one of those models too. The problem is that the interior color scheme was 92-95 only, and Chrysler didn't start fully galvanizing the frames until 96, the last year of that body style. So it takes a lot of work to get one together if you want it to look like a JP jeep.
  21. Continental JBL amp = WIN.
