    Car stereos and speakers

    Does anyone miss putting in car stereos growing up? I was big into them. There was nothing like installing one and getting everything hooked up and testing them out. I went though a few different speaker setups, but my best was 2x 15" and 3x 10" in a hatchback with a capacitor. That system thumped.

    Subaru's new model the Ascent

    So I see Subaru came out with a new model this year. A larger model SUV. It looks like an oversized Outback, but still provides all the great feature that Subaru has to offer. I stopped in a dealership the other day and looked inside one. They have third row seating as well...

    Diesel trucks

    Why do people own these? I mean I understand when you need to use them for power etc. But around here they are a trend thing. Like if you own a truck it has to be a diesel. Not like your pulling anything, just to say that you have one. But for example it's cold out. So people leave them running...

    Best fuel injection cleaner?

    What does everyone recommend for a fuel injection cleaner? I have been looking at Lucas fuel treatment. Has anyone used it before? Or do you use something else?

    Rotating tires

    How is everyone up on their tire rotations? How often do you do them? I have to admit I have been slacking. Like real bad on a few vehicles. Rotated them on my truck yesterday. Way overdo. It's not like it's a bad job to do, just takes a little. Some of you might take them to a tire place or...

    Rhino ramps

    Anyone ever use these? I picked up a set at Walmart over the weekend. Thought they would give me some additional clearance when I do my oil changes. Some mixed reviews on Amazon about them though. But they seem pretty sturdy to me.

    When you don't change your oil

    Apparently a Audi TT without an oil change at 84,000 miles without an oil change. Here is a Honda Civic at 200,000 with regular oil changes.

    Car Waxing

    So for some reason I love waxing a vehicle. I don't know why, but I find it relaxing. You wait for the sun to start to go down at that perfect hour in the evening and then you put some tunes on and rub away. I like the feeling it gives my hands when the pain is smooth. Anyways. I cleaned my...

    PSA: Change your cabin filter

    So for those of you that have never changed your cabin filter in your car, I would HIGHLY recommend it. I pulled mine out of my car and have never replaced it before an it was disgusting. I can't even believe that my car's heater or vents even worked. For the cost around $15 I highly recommend...

    Tire Time

    Yes its that time of the year again. It falls every 3-4 years when you must purchase tires for your vehicles. Thinking about going with the same type though. I have gone through 2 sets of Nokians and have loved them. The downside they are expensive and are only a 30-35k tires. But they are the...

    Tesla model S

    Guess what me and @C Pav saw outside today on the way to lunch? Yes for real. Never thought I would see one in my life, especially around here. I am pretty good with car logos, and I was was like what is that, then I saw the word Tesla above the logo. But this was the model.

    Solar panels for vehicle roofs

    With all the vehicles on the road this day and age. Why not have a 3 foot x 3 foot solar panel located on top of the roof somewhere? Cars could be larger than a pickup's. Even the top of semis and trailers could use this. Now this of course can't keep up with the alternator to charge your...
