This is the viewfinder of my 40yo Konica SLR. See that red piece covering the 1.4 marking? That moves to block out any f-stops the current lens is incapable of. This is all done via physical interface with the lens. No electricity involved at all. Most of the parts that make this happen can be measured in millimeters.
If one were to own an older imported car that had ugly U.S. spec headlights, would it be legal to install and run the correct ones?
I’m looking at Canons because it seems I can get an adapter to use my 70's vintage Hexanon lenses. Older super-professional Canon bodies can be picked up for pretty cheap, like this 21mp Eos 5D Mark II for just $100. Somebody talk me out of this I have bills to pay.
Looks kinda generic now tho...
They axed it one week before it was to be shown at the 1989 Geneva auto show. There was concern that there would be too much demand for non-M cabrios. If built they’d potentially kill sales of the cash cow top trim 3-series convertibles.
I always forget that the E-Class Cabrio is a thing that exists. I just never see them.
I just realized that each of my three cars so far has, starting with 0, had roughly 60hp more than the one it replaced (65, 132, 190). If that trend continues, 250-ish is next. I need to start researching what my options are.
Classy. Bonus cool countertop:
They’re directly adjacent to my home/back/app switch buttons so every time I try to navigate away from chrome I unintentionally open the dumb share tabs.
It’s quiet, comfy, and looks modern without falling into that same glossy everything/no buttons crap that most newish cars suffer from. I might consider a Taurus as my next car.
Change my mind.
Changing the center brake light (or really any of the rear bulbs) is a completely tool free experience. Just unclip the little hatch on the trunk ceiling to reveal the bulb holder. Give that a quarter turn and it pops right out.
Miatas can’t go that fast.
That’s a new thing that nobody has ever seen before.
Some of you may remember I had an overheat last month. I sent the oil out for analysis and it looks like there’s no clear signs of damage. I discussed it further with them via email and we determined that the high sodium was due to the brand of oil I used and not from any coolant intrusion.

Change my mind.
I like the wheels and tires but I think the bed is a bit too modern looking.
