Green Ads – Nissan Leaf VS…

Share Button

Which one do you like better / dislike worse? Some are appalled at the Polar Bear ad. I think, as an ad, it’s OK. The notion that it’s a horrible ad because a Polar Bear, in real life, would rather eat you than hug you, is to me, a silly criticism. It’s a Commercial. Like […]

The Senseless Dream! (partially)

Share Button

Just the other day I had a dream… No, not that dream!… I drempt (yes I know it’s not a word) that the Cars were getting back together (there are hints that they may do so… even Ric Okasic is on board), and they got my name and number off the wall (oops, wrong group) […]

No No No No No – Not Another Conspiracy.

Share Button

OK. First, I will freely admit that I love a good conspiracy – Bush / Cheney planned 9/11, moon landing was a hoax, Roswell, the illuminate are running the world, in which case they really need to be fired… they’re doing a lousy job. The more creative the conspiracy the better.  Don’t get me wrong, […]

Toyota’s Pinto Memo Moment, Pt 3 – The Government Meddling In The Market… For It’s Own Advantage!

Share Button

Instapundit has a link showing how the Government take-over of General Motors has affected the way Washington has gone after Toyota. I have more evidence of that: “I would like to know how it could take us 6 years, dozens of lives, numerous lawsuits, substantial consumer complaints, mat replacements and repeated expressions of concern by […]

Share Button

Karl over at Hot Air channels Yoda with a post titled “Begun, the Toyota war has…”. He insinuates the problem with the sudden acceleration in Toyota’s… well… it’s all the drivers fault, saying that they accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brakes.   He quotes from a Detroit News article: Experts say the number […]

How do you stop an out-of-control Toyota from killing you? Shift into neutral or turn off the car…. Duh! Seriously, I find this video advise troubling on a few different levels.

Best / Scariest Super Bowl Ad…. UPDATE

Share Button

Hey, before it was revealed to be an ad for Audi, I thought it was a promo for California. They pretty much already arrest you for having plastic bags in San Francisco. PS. There are more follow-up commercials. Again, they smack of California. UPDATE: News headline confirms my analysis: Why the “Green Police” Is So […]

My First Time… Changing A Head Gasket

Share Button

I was reading this thread about a mechanic who accidentally switched the left and right heads on an EA 82 Subaru engine, and started to wonder what my worst repair blunder might have been. Most of us back yard mechanics have installed distributor 180 deg off, screwed up on the timing belts at least once, […]
