Holy ****... You aren't joking . Its like you are some sort of genetically engineered super-douche. I get that you are from Ft. Wayne, but I just didn't realize how bad things have gotten in Indiana these past few years. For shame.

Backwards tires and can't even latch a hood closed:



Just screams well-maintained or well thought out for that matter.

There are actually valid reasons for mounting directional tires backwards, but the hood fail is very LOLz

More Noise? Worse wet traction? Increased tire wear? Premature failure?

lulz, there is typically no desegregation in dry performance with backwards tread, so you can flip tires around to equalize mad dorifto induced tire wear. i've also read that it will improve snow traction, but I've got no intention of finding out for myself. unfortunately, it will not alleviate worn synchro problems.

It's a cherry under the hood, I swear! You'd never believe how many times I changed the oil in it. No really... the oil...
