This looks nice enough and all, but really? First oil change EVER? You've got to be making GBS threads me.

e: Not so much concerned with the mileage between oil changes but the timespan of the bike being new to its first oil change.

honestly even 20 years aside at ~3,000 miles you should be at your second oil change, not your first

This can be used to your advantage on ebay. Some people use misspellings to find a listing that no one else is searching for, like Hodna instead of Honda.

Craigslist is where that gives you an advantage. Ebay has categories by brand. The idiots only have to be able to READ the brand name, not SPELL it. The only exception to this is when you see things going into "other makes" that are not other makes.

Of course, it works for things other than cars on Ebay.

I've done it with computers, particularly back before HP bought Compaq. Just search for "compac" and "Compak" and "compact" and so forth. You'd get a combination of misspelled make-up compacts and compaq computers, always with zero bids.

Of course, I never actually bought the things, because buying a used computer and having it shipped to you is pretty risky, but it is a viable method.

Heh. Like, for example, Search eBay for 'Porche'. I got 108 hits.

I'm pretty sure it means the fuel tank filler is located in the driver's door jamb, but not on the door itself. And the gas tank is in its original location, not in the driver's door.


At least, that's what I hope.

This way you can fill the car while you're driving so you don't have to stop at a gas station and get the poo poo kicked out of you for driving that thing.

The video, the "Artists concepts" the music, and the pictures of it's current condition, all on top of a 1987 Corvette. Truly a fool and his money. My favorite part,


"The name Lazer F/X is a combination of the words "laser", which represents the cutting edge of technology, and the movie title "FX", which represents special effects put together they form the car's name and theme: Lazer F/X!"

I kinda want that. Its so wonderfully horrible, like an homage to poor decision making skills. Its like the owner had slightly more taste than a some of the ricers we have seen, but very poor impulse control.
