2300 lb car on studs laughs in the face of your axle deep unplowed parking lot (with ice under the fresh stuff). Parked for a full 10 hour workday and she pulled right out. Every other car in the lot was a big awd crossover that probably gets half the mileage I do.

If the threat of loosing your license to shitpost on the worlds finest automotive subblog isn’t enough to convince you to get your ass out of your chair, and plonk down 15 bucks to sit in a movie…

Whoever makes these cheap ass replacement oil caps for O’Reilly’s neglected to apply lock tight to the nut that holds it together, thereby preventing metal pieces from falling into the moving valve train while the cap flys off allowing hot oil to spray all over the engine bay. Luckily my (oppo reader!) girlfriend is…

So obscure it may or may not be actual trivia. Featuring such nonsensical gems as “In what year did the Honda Motor Company Ltd develop a gasoline car with the lowest emissions?” and, in the motorcycle category, “What is the most World Rallying Championship race wins?”
