Beater, baby! Helps keep the mileage low. An extra car is almost always a win. Beaters are cheap.

Here's a shot from last March of my two cars. Guess the beater. While the Aveo is a poor...

I was just telling my brother the other day I might take my vert out of storage because of the wimpy winter. Looks like I'm paying for another month.

Last time I got an inspection I had to drive it in the bay because the tech couldn't drive a stick. Local gas station. Kind of sad.

Wife and I have twins. Last summer she was adamant they not go in the vert with top down. This year they should be good at 2 and a half. Not on highway, of course.

My argument is: If you can afford 25-50k for a car, you can afford $600-$800 to store it for the season. Go from 12/1 to 2/28 like I do. That gets you through the worst of winter and you only pay 3...

These are the infamous rub marks, yes? Warranty work?

Guys,

I bought a 2013 brand new in August 2013. That's the end of the summer season here in Mass, so I only used the convertible a handful of times. I used it a lot this year. Probably about a...

I still seem to struggle putting it on. There must be a youtube video somewhere. It takes me 2-3 minutes.

What happens if I bring my car in for an oil change or service? Are they going to be asses about the key or can I just tell them to pound sand? I'll never give them the second key.
