On Design Details this week is the age old argument of wheel covers. Plastic ones, to be exact. As enthusiasts we have always lambasted the look of a plastic wheel cover, preferring the clean look of a blank steelie. However, for most non-enthusiasts, putting a decorative cover over the filthy black wheel is a high… »
Is three! The Pilot was replaced by a 2015 Volvo V60 T5 Drive-E Premier Plus in Power Blue Metallic! »
Full review coming soon. AMA in the meantime, and I’ll answer the questions to the best of my ability in said review.
Now that we only have two cars in the driveway, both of which happen to be Volvos, I figured a small picture dump was in order! Volvo. For life. »
I was watching the Forza Motorsport 4 Trailer this morning, the one with Clarkson in it and realized that the key fob that the guy pulls out for his DB9 is nearly identical to the one for my V50...this is, of course, before the Emotion Control Units were released... »
I spent most of the traveling in my day on the MRT, but I took several crappy pics when I used my feet for transport! »
This week’s Driveways of America is in a bit more Northerly spot...but can you guess the more accurate state and location? Don’t forget to choose your favorite car in the poll! »
Last week, I went to Asheville, NC for some much needed vacation time with the family. As usual, I had packed up my trusty old Nikon D5100 for some great picture taking, and again as usual, I forgot it at the house and had to rely solely on my iPhone for taking pictures... So, getting in to Asheville and it’s… »
Between my car ownership history and that of my parents when I was growing up, I’ve been around high-mileage beaters my entire life. One of the things that I learned early on was to never look too closely. It really doesn’t matter whether you know that the rings are worn, or it’s down on oil pressure, or that the… »
I’m not good at writing serious. Thus, I’m out of my element here. This write-up is at times disjointed and sentimental, but I tried to keep that to a minimum. It’s a little rambly and not all of the opinions and views are correct, so don’t tell me that, I already know. I hate my opinions, too.
And at the pump next to me there is some old man driving a Buick. He looks at my car and tells at me to Stop wasting gas on my Jap car. That was a new one... »
As of six o’ clock today (PST), I will be officially 16 years old! That means that I’ve been on Oppo for about a year now...here’s to many more years to come! »
Religiously every Tuesday evening, I look over the vehicle sheet for the local Portland OR Copart auction the following day at noon. I often purchase reliable, sensible cars with abundant parts, but every so often I find a vehicle that seems so awesome, I say to myself to damn with reliability. »
In case anyone wasn’t aware of it, I have a new car! Well, technically its not mine as its registered under my parents, but by all intents and purposes, I have full responsibility of it within the family. The car in question is the V50 I posted about a few months ago. My dad saw the car as a great deal considering its… »
Welcome back to Used Car Face-Off! Today we are looking at three strikingly similar Euro wagons, all from 1995, all under $4K, all RWD with automagic transmissions, and all with I6 engines. They are two Teutons and a Swede and the only question is, which is the best deal for the money? »
