So it's a Reliable Driver for $2k? Can't beat that. The Drivetrain is the most important component. If that's solid then the rest is minor.

Y'all still kicking around here I see! The 300m I had way back when was traded on a fusion and then went to a S4 now sitting with a Taurus SHO. Heavy suckers, but still in the sedan family. 3.5L V6 can't seem to get away from it I guess!

Just got back from getting Old Red a wheel alignment.

Drives straight as an arrow now!

Lined it up with a tape measure to get it going; I was almost perfect on toe in, quite a bit off on camber LOL.

Time to powder coat Old Red's engine cover!

Took me about 2 hours to prep it for the red lettering yesterday.

Thats first; then the grey lettering.

Then finish with the black powder.

All this fancy packaging and marketing bull crap on them.

5 years so far on my $3.50 wiper blades on the intrepid. Damn things clear the windshield just fine. LOL.

The kid at the counter at Vatozone looked like he wasnt old enough to remember when wiper blades were reasonably priced.

I told him these must be made of gold and good got almighty and all that and he just looked at me funny.

They are making a fortune. Probably costs ~$1 or less to make a wiper blade. LOL.

Especially when RockAuto has a closeout! Got the rear window wiper for Durango on closeout for 99 cents each! I bought 5 of them!

^That's what i do! Lol.

Right now discussing with Corsair how they plan to reimburse me for a failing mouse. Left mouse button is acting wonky. Remapped the button so I can continue use.

Probably would have cost me $10 to drive to Raleigh and back for the cheap ones, plus the extra hour it would take, and stopping by work while on vacation lol; but last time I buy wiper blades from Vatozone.

Yeah I'm not big on shopping at automotive part chains for wiper blades. Just usually wait a week and get them on RockAuto
Also compare to Amazon. I bought a Trico wiper listed on Advance for $12, same wiper $8 on Amazon, and free shipping, no sales tax (so far).

I always get charged sales tax. PA is becoming to be rather humbug ish with that kinda stuff. I've tried using amazon for car parts but generally speaking I'm not getting them at a low price.

THOUGH. I did get these...



or moreso my sister did. Excited to break them in.

You have to be careful on Amazon. A number of states are getting their cut of Sales Tax now. If you shop around on Amazon you can many times find a seller that doesn't end up dinging for tax. It's tougher to find because you don't see the tax until you get to checkout.
