I hate to say it, but what am I missing? Same with the 747 cargo door. »
Now whether that's also one mile before it needs to be serviced/fixed/bursts into flame remains to be seen... »
This was a pretty common issue on 2001-ish Ford Focuses (Focii?). The o-ring on the gas cap would eventually flatten, causing a pressure leak. »
That was one heck of a read. Good stuff. It reminds me of a road trip that a friend and I did a few years back - from Calgary Alberta, down to San Diego, then up the 15 back to Canada. Makes me want to do a write up of it like this. »
On that note, does anyone make lithium polymer car batteries? It seems like an interesting option. »
Agreed. My wife and I were at a car show earlier this year, and saw one that still had something like "Acme Garage" on the side. I'd love to own a truck like that. »
Not sold in the U.S., from what I understand. Still, it seems like one of the smaller vehicles with three rows of seating.
Sometimes a person has to work with what they've got. Right now I don't own an air compressor, so if I was in a real bind, I'd have to use my bike pump. Mind you, I've got enough tires around (between summer and winter tires) that I doubt that'd be a problem, but still... »
Very interesting and good to know. My wife has a 2000 Cavalier, and the CD deck in it is scratching disks. I've got a spare deck kicking around, and was thinking about throwing it in. Now... now I'm going to have to debate doing that. »
The depth of field at f/1.4 is really really narrow - especially for taking pictures of an entire car.
The noise thing probably doesn't help. That was going to be my next suggestion - up the ISO. A grainy picture is probably going to be better than a blurry picture. »
Sometimes the defrost will also run the A/C to dry out the air prior to blowing it into the vehicle. Not sure if a '97 F150 would do that, but it's a possibility.
I'd say go take it for a drive today, and see if you can get it to do it again. »
