Not car-related, just 3AM personal story time. Probably not worth the read.
I’ve never had an engine over 3.0L in displacement in any car I’ve owned or daily-driven.
I’ve been saying all season that it seemed that the NHL was helping the LVGKs get by, and that it wouldn’t be beyond the league to ensure the GKs got to the Stanley Cup Finals to make headlines.
Got some wheel center caps for my gen-1 XC90 this week. They’re the newest style, with the black background behind the VOLVO text on the Ironmark, which IIRC Volvo started using when the new XC90 came out a few years ago.
Don’t place your magnetic smartphone holder above where the ignition key/button is.
I traded in my Mazda6 and bought the XC90 I posted about last week! Photos coming soon.
My work acquired a 2006 Volvo XC90 2.5T AWD that’s going to our wholesale/auction lot. I had them put a hold on it for me because it’s in stunningly good shape, and I’m contemplating buying it before it goes to auction/wholesale.
and it sounds glorious.
...and did appallingly bad driving a P1 around Dubai and a few other courses.
...to gather the dogs back from the couch and go back to the warm bed and sleep.
...I got my wife’s Mazda6 mobile again.
Are they legal to import to the U.S.? Getting conflicting information.
•edit: TL;DR summary at bottom. It got longer than I expected (phrasing! Boom!).
Sand and polish headlights: Check.
I grew up in a house that was just younger than my parents’ marriage by a few years (late 1970s). As such, one of the things that I didn’t realize was so effective was the HVAC system in that relatively-new house, especially until I bought my own house, which is almost as old as my parents themselves (context!). So…
I’d hoped to post before other sources shared it, but that’s the cost of being at work. Even still... https://jalopnik.com/mclarens-secret-and-street-legal-p15-will-soon-be-revea-1820435865
Earlier this year I bought a 17-year-old orange Mazda6 sedan on a whim, because I loved the color, and already had a Mazda6 that was a year older and 12k miles more worn. The color never fails to make me smile, she’s in good shape, and passed the state inspections no problem, and has no quirks that aren’t easily…
I’m pretty excited about the new XC40. Volvo’s one of the European underdogs against the well-regarded and popular Germans. Their newest wares under Geely’s ownership have been excellent, and the XC40 looks to continue that trend.
...that CarMax is carrying the Ford Focus RS.
