but I've got an 04 that was purchased 3 years and 40K ago in my driveway. It's never broken down or left us stranded, and it's been running 12PSI of boost (twice the factory tune) for the last two years.
my wife drives it daily. If she can't hurt it, no one with any mechanical sympathy can. She gives no fucks. Oh it's -10 and there's 12" of snow on the road? let me just fire it up and immediately hit 3 gears pulling out of the driveway in the snow. <- true story, watched her do it two weeks ago.
whiteblocks are solid. the aisin trans MAY become a problem, but they were fixed after 03, mostly. unless you neglect it, they are fine.

Anyone have any experience keeping deer away from their shrubs? Not usually an issue this time of year, but in the winter they come right up to the fucking house and annihilate the trees. Are the repellants a waste of time? Burlap bags?
Basically I am wondering what this summer is likely going to look like if this closure continues as far as people selling projects go. Just collecting opinions.
I have a car that probably needs a better home than I can give it, most likely, for awhile. A guy wants the car pretty bad but...
So I'm tired of eating frozen waffles, and I know it simple to make the batter for waffles. What do you guys recommend for a waffle maker I see ones with just hinged lids and other that you can rotate also.
For the smartasses I know you put frozen waffles in the microwave or toaster and no I...
