    Something about it says Mercedes-Benz GLA, but I’m not sure.

    Also, while searching for yesterday’s Crapshoot (today, since I didn’t check it yesterday), I found this listing for old hubcaps for sale, and I’d like to know what they’re from too.$_27.JPG

      The first full one at the top-right looks identical to the optional ones on my ’67 Dodge Sportsman van. Looks like the one you can see just the bottom of at the top-left is the same style.

      No idea about the hubcaps, but while doing the same search, I found this Hudaon Club Coupé (?) with a photo and line I always react to: “This rust has been taken”. =8^)

      The ones with the red center kind of look like Cougar hub caps.

      The three bar spinners are Pontiac.

    I_Borgward’s story in the ever-buy-a-car-from-a-bro reminded me of a thing that happened to me as a youngster. thought i’d not jack his thread and post it here instead.
    this is why my car advice is usually “hey, why not a nice Civic?” you don’t even have to sell someone a car to be responsible for it. all you have to do is suggest it, and if something’s wrong with it it was your fault for suggesting the wrong one.
    when i was a preteen nerd, i convinced my mom to buy another 128MB stick of RAM for our desktop, which was a bit of a laggard. unfortunately, our computer, i later learned, required a special kind of “low-density” SDRAM, which was much more expensive and was not a part of the megasale that made me brave enough to ask for what i got. that same sale meant we couldn’t return the stick, and 12-year-old me felt intensely guilty, though my mom probably didn’t care. a few months later my cousins complained that their computer was slow. they had a single 128MB stick (remember when you had to match em?), so i installed the extra RAM in their computer.
    a year later one of them complains that the computer is slow again, and lets slip, “i think it’s that thing you put in it.” i say that’s not possible, and all my cousins just look at each other silently. motherfucker are you shitting me? are you for real right now? no good deed goes unpunished, eh? so i had to go and clean all the garbage out of their hard drive and delete all the goddamn mouse pointers and bonzibuddies, because the moment i helped them out, their shit became my problem. i left the extra RAM in there, but now i just don’t offer things to people if they don’t ask, including fun. want a car? buy a fucking civic.

      I’ve cleaned the junk out of a few people’s computers before, usually without telling them, and they usually just ended up putting all the junk back on it. I did have a friend who got mad at me for doing it though, which I didn’t understand (you really need five weather programs running on your desktop?).

      Ah, yes… Reverse Midas Touch By Association – whoever attempts to repair or revive a malfunctioning device, however well-intentioned, is subsequently responsible for all future malfunctions with said device, no matter how unrelated they may be to the original malady.
      An inescapable sand trap that devours goodwill and amplifies irritation ten-fold. My biscuit has been burned many times in this fashion. Someday I will learn.

    So the balance shaft chain idler sprocket bolt was stuck, and immediately stripped out. Tried a bolt extractor, but the hole was too shallow to bite. No room to drill it out. Solution? Hammer and chisel.
    Had to replace the bolt anyway, right?

      The kind of problem Dremel was made for.

        See, I went to use my Dremel, found the stupid unreliable speed control switch had broken again, and just got out the hammer and chisel.

          Best way to fix it is to weld a nut on what’s left of the end and then remove it normally with a wrench/socket.

            Not gonna weld around my incredibly oil drenched engine. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

          I’m also a fan of judicious application of force. My back up plan probably would have been little vice grips.

            It get worse; that bolt was countersunk. 😐

            There is a point at which the fun ends. You crossed it.

    2. BigRedCaveTroll Avatar

      I feel your pain. I was replacing an exhaust manifold on a friend’s Jeep and broke a bolt three times while extracting it.

    Spitfire, obviously.

      That’s the other end.

    It’s a older beige Dodge Caravan. I wouldn’t put it any newer than 2005 or so.

    Alright, I’m starting to sound like that kid on Jalopnik who claimed he had a Lotus Esprit, with this saga of the ‘alleged’ SS we ordered. Pics or it didn’t happen right? We really did order it. Pinkie swear.
    So still no car. Only thing we can get out of GM is that it has departed Kansas destined for the carrier in Dilworth. No assurances though that the car left by rail or by truck. No delivery date. No nothing. This is getting ridiculous. With today’s technology shouldn’t they be able to track a car better than this? What’s the hold up? Supposedly this car has been stateside now for 2 months – how damn long does it take to get to Minnesota?

    1. Sjalabais Avatar

      GM is busy trying to confirm every cliché about them. Crossing my fingers for a picture perfect SS showing up any day now…

    2. Vairship Avatar

      Report it stolen and see if the police can find it? 😉
      Seriously, this is getting stupid. You have better tracking opportunities sending a $5 package through the mail.

    Dogs. I don’t get it. Nasty, filthy, shitty…hair everywhere. Why do people subject themselves to this? I suppose if you had a herd of sheep to contend with, it would make sense to own a dog, but it seems that very few people own a herd of sheep these days.
