Any sign that the white tire lettering you did is smearing or washing off, Rusty?

I've got four little Michelin Men that might get the paint treatment in the spring... :ph34r:

WELL. The lettering on the right side of the car is dissapearing, but on the left it seems to be holding up quite well. Must be all the extra rubbish on the right side of the road, not sure. I need to get the OIL based marker and try that, because that was what I wanted int he first place, but the lady sold me a water based instead, and I didnt know because they look exactly the same.

Do you expect the oil based to hold up any better?

My Contis are pretty good in snow, the BF Goodrich tires, I had the same brand on my Contour many moons ago and it did well, but I think I'mma minimize driving my Thunderbird in snow due to the evil salt Illinois uses.

I do. The guy that I got the idea from used oil-based, and his have been holding up very well, I think he did three coats.

Kevin and his refrigerator are having a Mexican standoff at the moment. And this time, the fridge might actually win.

You see, the ice bucket... It's empty, been empty for over 20 hours.

Though, if you unplug the fridge for 2-5 minutes, plug it in, it will harvest ice. But let it run though its cycle? No. Pile of s**t crappy built Kenmore/Whirlpool fridges. PRETTY sure I know the issue, and it'll be a $50 fix from an ebay for a OEM part...

I just hate the not being 100% before spending more than $5 on a part... Oh, and Sears told me to go f**k myself, unless I wanna pay for a tech to come out.

So yeah, f**k Kenmore. It's sad when people toss out a 20+ year old fridge for one of these "fancier" s**ttier fridges that can't even last more than 10 years. The fridge was purchased around 2005/2006.

GAHHHHHHHH I HATE CHEAP APPLIANCES!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cheap plastic, cheap parts, cheap everything!

You know... Giving that fridge the finger. Must have fixed it... I went downstairs to get a drink, mind you after about 10 hours (With the Acceler-Ice feature on, which makes ice quicker...) It dropped a load of ice.

Moral of the story: Flip your appliances off more :P

Which is why I plan to purchase something like this (prefferably a Philco V-handle :Shady_J: ) :

What I want to know is this: The new fridge? It's an energy-star appliance! YAY! Oh wait, it will need replaced every 5 years. OK that's fine, as long as I'm saving on my energy bill. They never add up the cost of replacing the fridge every 5-10 years over the saving on energy vs. using an old fridge that's NOT 'energy-efficient' but seldom breaks down, and when it does, it can be fixed by a semi-educated monkey. So what do you save on energy every year with a energy star appliance? 50 bucks? 100 bucks? (I honestly don't know, but it can't be more than that.) OK so you buy a $500 fridge. It fails in 5 years, and will cost too much to repair. Hell, you just evened out! NOW you can get a refurbished vintage fridge for a grand or less, which will last you 10, 20, 500 years. It breaks down on day, guess what? You can fix that for $100 or less in most cases, and be on your way for another 25 or so years. My grandfather has an original 50's fridge/freezer in the basement. Been in constant use since new. Guess what? It has NEVER broken down, and it stays cold as the north pole in there, too. If any repair has been done, it was a door gasket, which will age with time. A maintenance repair.

Wow that was alot, sorry folks! Today's throw-away society just pisses me off so much.I would rather have something old, built to last, than the latest, greatest Korean appliance. If that makes me uncool, oh well! I don't give a sheet! :D

Amen brotha!

That Frigidaire is beautiful :)

I wouldn't mind that fridge, and a Frigidaire Multimatic washing machine, along with one of their extensive ranges that do everything. I hope I get lucky and come across an original house with original appliances during my house shopping. But most appliances are scrapped for these crappy computerized machines. Computers are great... But they don't need to be in everything...

Just look at this sexy range!

They sure built em right in the 50's, if only someone could reproduce those quality products...

Oooooh, a Norge.... The brand often forgotten, yet last a lifetime.

I'll take that amazing GE Range in the middle!

And for clothes:

Just a perfect washer. Watch how it throws its water during the spin cycle... Simply amazing
