I'm *still* trying to figure out how he dropped the whole thing off like that. I can't say I spent a lot of time studying the assembly or the back of his car. I was more concerned with making...

Last week, the car in front of me dropped the entire rear assembly (bumper, lights, quarter panels ...) off of his car. Thank goodness he was in the next lane over. Had he not been I would have...

There is a lot of "blur" when using the term computer today. When I had a PDP-8 spread out all over the dining room table it was easy to say - that's a computer, it's why we have to eat in the...

Hi

Interesting factiod:

On a reasonably high end vehicle, you have more than a hundred "computers" in the driver seat. No, that's not a typo. It just happens to be empty space that you can...

Very glad to hear you survived the experience.

He could easily have accelerated and I'd not have been able to notice it from as far back as I was. There's only just so much you can notice unless you are right close up behind somebody. I...

Well as long as we're drifting off topic a bit (how unusual ...). Here's one that almost gave me a heart attack last week.

The Suburban of the 1970's and early 80's was a *very* different vehicle than the one we can buy today. I could actually sit up in the standard front seat of a 1970's Suburban. Not so much by...

Sorry to say, but oil changes don't seem to show up in the numbers when I add them in with the fuel bill. $200 for oil is about the same as how many stops at the pump? :) I seem to stop at...
