Why were there two cars just stopped on the bridge? They're what was causing the other drivers to brake.

Im sure they don't do it within the first hour of it snowing!

Around here, the city sucks at plowing. We had two snow storms completely shut down the city and 1.5 weeks later, the snow was still packed on the ground. Areas outside fo town were completely clear 24 hours after it stopped snowing, main roads being clear within only a couple hours.

Despite the terrible plowing, the city drops salt on all the hills and interstates hours before a snow storm hits. They don't plow, but they make sure you don't slide down a hill on a bunch of ice.

Some guy trying to sell his 6-cyl Automatic Mustang. I don't know if to feel sorry for the guy, or laugh at all the rice.

He sounds so sad.

My coworker has a Mustang of that vintage with Lambo doors. God, do those things suck. I'm not sure if he ever fixed them, but they wouldn't line up properly when closing, so he had to lift the door slightly and gently press it closed. Took like 30 seconds per door. Bah.

Not really automotive related. But there have been a few aeroplane threads in here, so close enough I think.

Is the Isle of Man circuit harder to memorize than the Nürburgring? I heard Nürburgring takes months to learn, but Isle of Man is more than twice as long.
