    RV - buying one for the MIL and need advice

    Mother in law has asked me to help her find a class C RV. She has a sky high budget (LOL) of $35k. Fortunately the interior she can redo but it needs to be mechanically sound. Possible or unpossible? best place to look? FB Marketplace? RV Trader? Fantasy land? Any and all advice welcome!

    Ferrari F8 Tributo

    So my dad got an unsolicited call from a Ferrari dealer with an offer for him to buy a 2020 F8 Tributo at list. He hasn't purchased a Ferrari in many years. I doubt he was their first phone call. We joked that this is a sign that the stock market hasn't bottomed yet. Still, he's considering...

    Venting: FEMA sucks balls! Stupid inaccurate flood map nightmare.

    Ugh! Trying to buy a new house and the FEMA flood map is plainly wrong is so many ways. Elevation, location, etc. The creek is drawn through the middle of my driveway, roughly 40 feet from where it actually is. One can plainly see this discrepancy on the FEMA supplied map. The roadway is a...

    Backed into a stray shopping cart at Home Depot. Got an awesome dent in the tailgate of the Ram. I was able to completely pop out the dent but some of the paint flaked off (down to bare aluminum) during the repair. You can see some additional paint is spidering below the chip. Am I crazy for...

    Thinking of buying a classic Mustang? Am I crazy?

    So because I'm a sucker for punishing my bank account and increasing my time in the garage I'm kicking around the idea of picking up a classic Mustang fastback. Budget is $40k or so. Obviously this won't be a numbers matching GT500 or some car that's had a rotisserie restoration, etc. I want...

    Funny or interesting license plates

    anybody have or see on the road any funny or interesting license plates? Not necessarily talking about personalized plates, but random plates issued by the DMV.

    Talk me out of (or in to) a C7 Z06 A8...

    Thinking about swapping out the GT500 for a 2016-17 C7Z with the A8. I feel like I've reached the point of diminished returns on mods for the GT500 unless I want to spend big bucks to pull and build the engine and the M6 just can't compete with the new auto cars. I have the Porsche for fun...

    Finishing detached garage

    My detached garage is 22' x 18'8" with 10' ceilings. Completely unfinished other than epoxy floor. An exterior wall of the garage is 28' from the main electrical box.

    Decided to go E85

    I've been using Sunoco 260 GT exclusively for the past 2 years. I can get it at the pump. Prices are up nearly $2/gal recently to $8.05/gal. Doesn't help that the pump is 20 minutes away, although I do fill 2 6gal racing containers up when I fill the tank. So, I'm switching to E85. There's a...
