  1. Your truck is powered by soft rock and roll, bald eagles and grunts of "Murica!"
  2. Because the Buick "TourX" variant for NA was given some extra body cladding and other styling elements that are meant to say "crossover" to consumers. GM was moderately brave to bring a midsize near-luxury wagon into our market, but not brave enough to outright advertise that it's a STATION WAGON. TaurusKev- It's not huge like the wagons you prefer. The Regal is basically Ford Fusion sized, and the Opel that they've been based on for a few years is in the same segment in Europe as the Mondeo so expect it not to grow any bigger for 2018.
  3. CTS wagon was discontinued with the latest body style change due to poor sales. But most luxury makes that offer them, especially BMW and Volvo, have a solid stream of buyers for luxury estates/wagons that aren't CUVs.
  4. I went to a tinting party...
  5. Mount it by the left A-pillar, ricer style.
  6. I'm registered to go do an autocross event in the morning, co-hosted by Chicagoland Mustang Club and Windy City Miata Club. #killconesnotpedestrians
  7. Happy fucking Thanksgiving!
  8. You forgot to not do that.
  9. Haven't done much with the Sable wagon lately except drive it, and this morning I helped a coworker bring home a new lawnmower from Lowes... he has a sedan and it wouldn't fit. She's just now rolling over to 119,000 miles.
  10. Should change that car to a 5.0 HO. 24 Heures Du LeMons' rules do require that the car was purchased for no more than $500, not counting the cost of safety equipment. Sounds like you'd need to write up an appropriate bill of sale for these prospective racers...
  11. TSOC LeMons team 2018. Go for it, guys!
  12. A friend of mine lives in Oswego, one of the far southwest suburbs of Chicago and about as close as you get around here to being "out in the boondocks"... there are roaming flocks of wild turkeys there that apparently chase and harass the neighbors and sometimes even pets left outside in their yard.
  13. Mmmm, fresh turkey.
  14. I didn't say that doing so was a bad thing.
