  1. Wouldn't say weird. But most cars nowadays always seem to have something "on" when a door is open. even if you can turn off all the interior lights there is still the light on the dash saying a door is open. I have this (maybe irrational) fear of draining the battery camping with a car door open.
  2. Buying Tesla stock is not a sound financial decision. It is buying into a cult. O.K. so some folk have probably made a killing buying into this particular cult, but it's still a cult.
  3. Unless you are going to spend decent money on a proper compressor type electric chilly bin, don't bother. Those plate cooler things are a waste of time. We biffed ours out and just got a decent size ordinary chilly bit. Fill with ice cold beer before you go and you are done, or get ice from the Servo mid trip. Sounds like you are in a good climate, don't need an expensive tent. But get an air bed, cheap and comfortable. Folding table and chairs are a must. Basic Gas cooker. That's basicly it. Have fun.
  4. I always thought something was going on with him. This doesn't surprise me at all.
  5. And fair enough too. If you are going to buy one, they kind of have to have one to sell. I think there is a worldwide shortage of cars, might not be the best time to get a great deal on anything, but then getting a good deal could mean waiting a year, who knows at this point.
  6. I didn't see that, I'm going to buy one of those for my wife's car!
  7. While you are still shopping around you may want to add the Subaru Outback and Ascent to your list. I have a 2011 Outback, had it for a couple of years and it's a great car (not a truck though). The eyesight system is really good, even my 10 year old version is and I'm sure it has only gotten better since. Had a small issue with it and took it to a Subaru dealer, I didn't buy it from them but they were still really helpful, something you hear about Subaru dealers worldwide. Might not be your cup of tea, but I think it needs to go on your maybe list.
  8. I'm not sure either. Some guys would get it on the trailer every time and some guys would just not. Guess it depends on who owns it.
  9. I wonder what the traction control of my Subaru would think of this. I see flaws.
  10. So Mel. You started a thread hoping to start an conversation. Because generally that's why people start threads. Then complained that people engaged in conversation with you?
  11. I saw reports somewhere in the interweb that an oil slick has been reported. Seems like it exceeded crush depth. Hopefully over quickly for the crew.
  12. Can we please keep the letters in alphabetical order, like it should be. Thanks.
  13. That is possibly the best way I have ever seen that said. Electric cars are the future. We just aren't in the future yet. So far they are very good. But they are not great yet. And the incandescent light bulb still has a place even today.
