I'm an old phart and was living here in NJ in 1964. Despite the lack of emission controls on cars we never had the kind of severe smog that was experienced in LA, where the problem was greatly...

I understand where you're coming from but there's a reason decades-old vehicles are not inspected here. There are so few left that you could probably take the cats off all of them and it would not...

Minor nit, it is pre-1996 vehicles that are not inspected in NJ. (Basically, only OBD-II vehicles are tested. Due to rust there are few older vehicles around.) One of my vehicles is a 1995 model and...

What I miss are the old-school local, full-service parts stores that had knowledgeable people behind the counter who weren't limited to what shows up on the computer screen. They'd usually have the...

That's not true, at least in the U.S. where catalytic converters started to be used on some cars beginning in 1975. (Fuel injection did not become common here until about a decade later and it was...

Seems to be a race to the bottom lately in terms of quality. On the other hand I have a circa-2003 Dell laptop that, aside from the battery, refuses to die, and I'm typing this on a 2006-vintage Acer...

Wife got a flat today in her Outback, so I tossed the tire into the back of the Jeep. Will drive her to work tomorrow in the XJ (I don't trust her driving on a donut spare) and drop the tire off to...

The practice of dipping the entire unit body in a vat of anti-rust compound is actually very old. Rambler started doing it in the 1950s. (Of course materials and processes have greatly improved since...

I still use old-school Permatex #2 on paper gaskets for things like water pumps and thermostat housings. Works really well.

I've never had a problem jerking spammers and scammers around. There's not really a heck of a lot they can do aside from uttering various curses.

Some people really get into it, too - do a web...

It's always been easy to make the return address look like whatever the sender wants. Kind of like putting any return address you like on postal mail.

I've gotten several of those, they are bullsh*t phishing emails. Too bad there's no way to send back a message with zero monetary value through Bitcoin. I love taunting those guys.
