      You don't agree with Elon's valuations. I don't either, but it still isn't cause for wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth. I was just pointing out that the Jalopnik author was so quick to get...

      Because no one is suggesting that an F150 will be fully autonomous and thus able to be used as a 24/7 robo taxi in the near future?

      You cite "economics and accounting 101" but don't understand the accounting or tax concept of "depreciation". Got it.

      The discussion started after a Tesla owner complained about "resale" value,...

      Why would Tesla need a monopoly? The premise of the tweet is simple: A Tesla will be worth more in the future than it is today because in the future, it can be a productive asset when not in use by...

      Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but Elon doesn't appear to suggest Teslas will increase in value due to rarity (like in the author's classic car example) but because fully autonomous driving...

      Umm, OK then. I thought we were talking about peoples' priorities.

      Are you equally bothered by $40-$70,000 pickups in the WT parts of town?

      Maybe it varies by region, but in the Detroit area, most people would use "box" and "bubble" to differentiate the different Caprice body styles. For example, a '95 Caprice is a bubble whether its in...

      I picked it up last night just as a big storm rolled in, I'll get pictures up soon.

      Edit: No, not high mileage at all. It pretty much drives like a new car.

      I ended up with a 2004 Lexus GX470 with 110,000 miles. One owner, all scheduled service done at the same Lexus dealer since new, including timing belt and water pump at 108K. I'm guessing it was an...

      This. Go to danielsternlighting.com before you buy anything and do some reading. A lot of the discussion is beyond me (I'm not an engineer and don't have enough time to read enough to get to the...

      On a 4th gen 4Runner, it's a packaging issue. The oil pan has to come off to properly reseal the timing cover, but the oil pan can't come out unless you either drop the front differential, or pull...

      Yes. Flat rate time on the job is well over 20 hours (I was told both 22 and 26 hours for customer pay). Parts and machine work puts the job in the $4xxx range easily, if anyone even wants to do...

      This wouldn't be a daily driver, but good points.

      High mileage vehicles: How many is too many?

      By way of background, I'm in the market for a second vehicle, probably a mid sized truck or SUV for winter duty (it snows a fair amount here and the roads in my county are like a third world...

      I took drivers' ed in 1998, in the same car, minus the smoke smell. I remember those cars being painfully slow with the A/C off, and almost dangerously so with it on, so naturally it was always on...
