When you get excited to see another on the road and they give you the headlight flash.

Been awhile since I had seen one local to me.

Western Mass is where my cars reside. But I fly in the what we refer to as the Tube of Torture. I spend about 12-17 days a month on the road with Uncle.

When you feel like decapitation by hatch lid is a very legitimate threat

Haven't laughed this hard in weeks.

...when the door handle brakes and the door won't open. Then everything in the door needs replaced. Yeah, that happened.

People say what happened to the trunk.
Your car has a on/off again misfire but it makes your car sound cool in idle.
Or
You race cars when they don't know your racing. Even with a manual car. Dam inline 4 is only good for saving gas.😑

I laughed so hard on this and can see where is this comming from. Two days ago friend was closing my boot and he just pushed it from above and when it got to aprox half i saw what is going to happen. I thought i will loose my ears since i was in the car.
That hatch is heavy no doubt but i like it

Don't close it that way the metal is not thick there and will stress crack over time. My last one required welding to fix it.

The catalytic converters fail about every 5 years. The rear corners of the wheel arches are normally rusted.

Of course i dont close it that way... I bring it by hand 5-6 inches above closing point and thats enough. Even less if any door/window is opened.

I thought my catalytic converter is bad because i barely passed eco test this year but i think its short drives and not achieving work temp what affected it and that it will be better now since i drive it much more than before. How do you diagnose a bad catalytic converter?
