    anyone ever get a headlight ticket?

    That's incredible. I can't think of much that's different between US spec and Canada spec cars. A km/h speedometer and DRLs are the only things that come to mind. Dan, what are your thoughts on DRLs? Do they add any safety overall?

    Torker 340 Intake Value

    I ran the old Torker 340 for years. It's not as horrible as some people say, but it's the exact intake people were warning you about when you said you were going with a single plane... "You'll be trading low RPM power for high RPM power!!" A good modern single plane intake is much less of a...

    What Is The Best Car You've Ever Rode In On The Street?

    Ohhh, I'm gonna get flamed for this. "Best" meaning the fastest car I have ever experienced / driven is a Tesla Model 3 Performance. Utterly unlike any other car I have ever driven. To be clear, I'm not an EV fanboy. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have an EV, but I prefer analog cars...

    1300 hp mercury comet brake failure crash

    Right, and water doesn't freeze in a way that would make a core plug work as a freeze plug. The water will get below 0° C and remains a liquid until the block can't contain the pressure of the expansion anymore, then it flash freezes and expands instantaneously, which causes the block to crack...

    A body value

    Same with AMC cars. The Javelin, AMX, etc. Younger guys don't see AMC as the red headed stepchild of the American auto industry the same way most older people would. When it comes to muscle era Mopars, the A body stigma has always been a big joke to me. A, B, and E are all the same...

    My Friends Drive ........

    Ha ha, I do the opposite. My daily driver is a Pontiac Vibe, I claim it's a Toyota. For those that don't know, the Vibe was the same car as the Toyota Matrix. The Vibe was built in a GM factory by GM workers with parts built and engineered by Toyota. I'm a Dodge guy but I'm not brand loyal...

    Let's talk about trucks

    Looking for something about 10 years old you say? My brother has had a 2007 Silverado since almost new. OK, so that's 15 years old, but I would think that any Chevy or GMC in that generation would be pretty much the same (2007 - 2013). That thing has been crazy reliable for him, with about...

    Explain your username here --->

    Back in the day (mid 90s) I had a slant six Dart and another guy in our group also named Mike had a 440 Duster (11 second car with full cage, mini tub, 3.91, etc). People started calling us both Mike Mopar, but that causes obvious problems. One day a bunch of us were hanging out and someone...

    Terrible news indeed, my heart goes out to Jen and her family and I sincerely hope they are well. I'm not sure of the messaging you're getting where you are, but from the 3 different levels of government where I live the message is clear: NOBODY should be visiting ANYBODY unless it's an...

    Nick's garage

    I love Nick's Italian-who-emigrated-to-Quebec French Canadian accent. Every time he says he's gonna "make a test" it reminds me of the guys I used to hang out with in St Leonard.

    This manager sounds like a real douche. Good companies require good leadership, something it seems this person is lacking.

    Concentrix Logo "I work for a multibillion dollar company that doesn’t really care for its employees

    This is all so true. I work for a multi-billion dollar organization in an IT role, but I'm fortunate enough to work for one of the better companies. ^^Absolutely! Front line support is an entry level position, and it is not usually a fun job so the good ones don't stay there very long...

    Rock albums ,that you love, most people don't know....

    Rusty was a garage band out of Toronto in the mid-90s. Their album Fluke was great. Misogyny. Give it a 45 second test drive, but you'll probably know within the first 15 seconds if you're going to like it: California. Invest 60 seconds to see if you like it. I think it's awesome: Groovy...

    Unappreciated rock bands...

    Both Layne and Scott had some serious pipes. I saw Velvet Revolver play in Toronto and it was excellent, like a 9 out of 10. The band was much better than when I saw them as G 'n R in 1991!! Even Slash wasn't very good back in '91; the ONLY bright spot was Izzy.

    I'm a huge fan of slide guitar so I had to take a look at this one. That guy is undoubtedly incredible. It's amazing to me the way he has the slide on his ring finger and he still uses his pinky to fret notes. The video I posted of Jack White is a slide guitar medley. When Jack goes over to...

    Unappreciated rock bands...

    I think the White Stripes ended up with too much notoriety to be "unappreciated," and I was a huge fan in the early 2000's, but once I saw this I was hooked. You'll want to watch it until the end. The White Stripes "Let's Build A Home" (Live on Late Night with Conan O'Brien) - Avant

    Ha ha, human nature, I guess. We rarely recognize the evil within ourselves. I envision 65LoveAffair looking just like me, only he has a goatee and wears all black clothes. He also talks with an odd European accent, maybe German or Austrian, and he has a maniacal laugh.

    Wife had a wreck last night

    Wow, I'm sure glad your wife is OK. Sounds like she saw the other car coming and minimized the damage. Good on her! But that uninsured driver thing is nuts. Around these parts auto insurance is mandatory, and you earn yourself a $5000 fine for driving without insurance: No Insurance carries no...

    Do you trust your car at the shops you take it to??

    YIKES! That's not good. Maybe you'll have to wait at the shop while they do the work. Don't give them an opportunity to de-rubberize your tires!
