Not a single fsck was given when it blows up or sinks. That would be fun, but in a car that you depend on to get places and or care about even a little bit that seems like a bad idea with how wild the weather has been lately.

If your car did fall thru, the cost of the car wouldn't be the issue, the fines for it polluting the lake, and cost to pull it back out would be the real fear.

Hi folks, as usual been off the grid. Between working 65 hours a week and the fact I tore my ACL last week and have the flu now.. lovely? So last night I went to the store and some decided to hit me and take off. Cops wouldn't come make a report as it was 'private property' but fortunately my insurance is covering it with no deductible. Looks like merely a bumper and tail-light. Good damn dude.. gg. I think it was a jackass with a plow, or brush guard.

This is a roughly accurate description of what happened when i let him drive my miata.

won my class by 4 thousandths of a second... he hops in and beats my best time by two and a half seconds (we also lowered the tire pressures a bit.. but still) my mind was blown.

and yonkers is all like: [bootyshak

Thats the general Idea. they'll be drawing at least 50 samples from around the course to ensure its thick enough to race cars on. it hasn't been thick enough to be safe the last couple years. also it's "black ice" not that packed snow crap that some fishers call ice. the Furrin groups only been doing it for 50 years I doubt there will be an issue. last time they did it they had a Hummer H1 show up to race. no issues.

4wd......28mpg......10k+ miles logged. all I've done is replace tires and oil changes.
this car has so far cost me $268 for maintenance and purchase price of the vehicle. it'd be negative if I hadn't cracked a wheel being retarded and then needed a windshield to boot.

It's probably the smartest car I've ever purchased lol



If it falls through the ice I wont even sweat it.
