Some of you may have heard of the ol’ potato in a tailpipe trick. Even fewer might have actually either been the victim or the culprit of such an event. I myself have neither been potatoed nor have a potatoed someone else. I have heard stories however, and found it interesting to Continue reading
Following a comment by a member (who shall remain nameless, although he knows who he is) on my facebook page, I have decided to look more into the all-new, every-man’s-fantasy, Jaguar F-TYPE. This post will delve into a bit of detail on this gorgeous and yet, reasonably affordable Jaguar. First off I have to say that Continue reading
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between the good ole Ford Crown Victoria and the Police Interceptor version that law enforcement uses? I certainly have, so I’ve decided to pursue the topic, and bring what I find to you. And, after my search, there is, disappointingly, very few change making differences.

Many a debate has been had over superchargers and turbochargers. This will not be one. I am not going to tell you which is better, both because I am simply providing descriptions and information of them, and because I myself have not owned or driven a vehicle equipped with either.

#1 Being number one, this should be the most important tip…and it is. Don’t drive a Hummer. It’s that simple really.
If you drive a Hummer, you will spend most of your day at the pump, despite the ginormous 32-gallon monster-of-a-tank. But no, the best thing you can do for fuel economy is drive an economic vehicle. I understand that sometimes you need these huge vehicles to pull or haul things, but unless that is why you need it, there is no reason for a single person to drive an F-350 with an empty bed on a six hour trip. Be smart get a compact car to do the grocery shopping and taking the kids to school and going on dates.

Destroying cars, driving recklessly, and crashing into a good friend. Don’t these all just sound like amazing things to do?! Well, if you take part in a demolition derby, you can do all of this and get away scott free! Let’s just pretend Continue reading
