    Make sure to check your oil level frequently!

    I noticed Mobil-One 5W-40 European Car Formula rated for Porsche/VW 502/505 in 5 quart jugs at Walmart today for $24.xx. I just changed my oil so I didn't pick one up but the Total Quartz 9000 I use cost me $6.00 a qt so this is a better deal.

    The Star Spangled Banner as you've never heard it.

    This "take a knee" disrespect must stop. Professional athletic traitors can all leave our shores. It turns my stomach. Any "sports fan" that patronizes these a-holes need's a check-up from the neck-up.

    New Ceramic Cam Follower...who's game enough?

    I'm thinking of how a fuse works. Do you want the wire to melt or the fuse to blow? Put in a bigger fuse than the wire ampacity and the wire will melt. So, this follower will work until the cam lobe wipes and wears down first?

    does anyone transport their dog in their GTI ?

    If you ever want to sell the car, you'll never get that "doggy" smell out. Ask my wife.

    Hood won’t open!

    I could do with a neat trick myself. All this isolation is making me lonely. Looks like @GTI's provided your answer. Cheers!

    I'm looking at: "Early look at data from 100 New York hospitals shows that 66% of new admissions related to the virus are people who were at home" These cases; "not working, not traveling, predominately at home" are still a subset of all people. The remainder of which are the majority and are...

    I'm going to try your rub on my next Salmon fillet. Zatarain's or Tony Chachere's? I'm digging your "sear at 125" technique. That steak is perfection. If that were my potatoe, I'd slice it into 3/8" medallions now and butter brush them, lightly salt and broil them on both sides until brown. Eat...

    Clunk sound when doing 8-turns, steering rack?

    Lift the entire front end and with someone in the drivers seat go through the steering range. As you alternately resist wheel movement on each side, outside of the car; have the driver stress against your resistance with steering effort until the clunk is felt/heard (hopefully). If you get a...

    My other passion/hobby

    Tea House of the August Moon and the Mikado are my only references to this. I like a well written Haiku. Nancy Quan was one of my first on screen crushes.

    The Worst Beetle?

    @The Fed , Worst Beetle? When I clicked the link I was expecting something that looks like the Oscar Meyer Wiener-mobile! I know. This is the "Wurst" comment. Down here in Florida all the sales people for "Truly-Nolen" pest control drive around in Beetle's with Mouse ears on top, tail in the...

    The Model 3 ruined my life

    You can F-1 to that snore fest. The scream of a Michael Schumacher era Ferrari engine was the sauce for me. Even the Great Stirling Moss (R.I.P) was quoted as saying that once racing became more about safety than the thrill of competition was a trade-off he was reluctant to make. "Carbon -...

    Movie and TV Recommendations

    Article in today's Tampa Bay Times: Bosch returns on Amazon for Season 6, April 17th. This one is based on 2007's "The Overlook" (where Bosch gets irradiated resulting in his Cancer diagnoses in 2018's "The Dark Sacred Night"). Should be a good one. Season 7 will be the last one it says. 😪
