I'm always excited, and a bit saddened seeing that Benetton F1 car, racing around Road America. On one hand, I feel lucky to be able to see a car, from the height of Formula 1's V10 era, but on the otherhand, feel sad that Road America was never able to host an F1 event. I know that is doesn't have the… » 7/30/14 12:56pm Today 12:56pm

I remember one of the first years Nationwide was there, they kept complaining about the rumble strips destroying sway bars. Pansies. Get Sprint Cup out there, and let's see some of the ringers blitz around. I was a bit disappointed in the lap times of the Nationwide guys, some of the vintage Mustangs and Camaros… » 7/23/14 11:58am 7/23/14 11:58am

Different strokes for different folks. Personally, I would have put that money into savings for a house, or piece of real estate that has the possibility of being an investment. I just dumped my used car loan, and bought a car outright. Best feeling ever now, not having a loan payment, and saving that money. » 7/23/14 10:57am 7/23/14 10:57am

It's big and slow so you're never really going fast enough to cause serious damage, it's relatively safe with modern construction and later versions had plenty of safety features and airbags (for the parents). For the gearhead it has a V8 up front that drives the rear wheels (lots of… » 7/16/14 12:14pm 7/16/14 12:14pm

How have the tow ratings changed with the replacement of the 5.4 with the Ecoboost V6? I know the last Expedition was nice, because it towed the most of any half-ton based SUV through at least 2010 I believe. I'm not sure about recent ratings though. » 7/14/14 2:49pm 7/14/14 2:49pm

But at least you could get a small 2.0L air-cooled flat-6, but those are hard to find and expensive these days. The common middle ground is finding the 2.0L flat-4, they have a bit more guts than the 1.7/1.8's. Always loved the 914's, and glad they are underrated and undervalued, makes it all the easier to… » 7/14/14 11:23am 7/14/14 11:23am

Of course bicycles kill less people each year! That's like comparing how many people are killed by cancer each year (a lot) and those that are killed by a sinus infections (not a lot.) Both are somewhat dangerous, but one is seriously more dangerous than the other. Did your study distinguish in what type of… » 7/07/14 6:16pm 7/07/14 6:16pm
