The new Camaro (track versions) are stupid capable; like breaching super-car performance levels, but you can't see a ****** thing outside of them. As long as you stay in front, I guess it doesn't really matter.

Honestly, the convertible feels less claustrophobic to me with the top up than the coupe. I think it might be due to the rear windows being a reasonable size (the coupe's aren't as big as they appear from the outside). As far as visibility, yes it is bad but the car has several electronic aids to help there. She is coming from an RX-8 which also has iffy rear visibility so she is already acclimated to it. I haven't had the chance to push it much yet due to the weather, but what I have been able to do suggests it is very capable.

The March issue of MotorTrend just covered the 2018 SS 1LE (1SS). In bone stock form, Randy Probst laid down a 1:20.67 lap at the Streets of Willow.

How many Freudian analysts does it take to change a light bulb?

Two. One to change it, and the other to hold the *****.

LADDER. I MEANT LADDER.

Wrong thread, but.....
How many Kennedy's does it take to change a light bulb?

Two. One to hold the bulb, and one to drink until the room spins.

Our 65lb Pit Bull has decided on a new game the last 1.5 weeks, we let the dogs out to run around, use the bathroom, etc. The other two dogs have no problem coming right back in. She will sit outside in 30 degree weather shivering like crazy and refuse to come in. Go outside with a treat she just runs around like it's a game.

Then jumps up on the backdoor, open it to let her in, process starts over again.

I'm less than amused.

Anybody know off hand the wrench size needed to remove the nut which holds the OEM oil cooler onto the threaded tube coming out of the block on an NA/NB 1.8 engine? Also the socket depth needed.

A deep 29mm fits it. The tube is about 1.5" long before the nut.

I now have conflicting answers from different sources: one says 29mm, the other says 30mm.

It's a small difference.

On the other hand, I've been chasing small differences (measured in microseconds) for a few weeks now...

29.5mm



Edit: I really wish I could recall without being at home and staring at my tools.

Info I found all says 29mm. I also found a post on M.net that says a 1-1/8" socket will fit in a pinch.

A Polish immigrant went to the DMV to apply for a driver's license.

First, of course, he had to take an eye sight test. The optician showed him a card with the letters:
'C Z W I X N O S T A C Z.'

'Can you read this?' the optician asked.

'Read it?' the Polish guy replied, 'I know the guy.'

Was wondering why my NB started to leak oil in the driveway. Went and put about 2 turns on the oil filter just now.

Damn BP engines vibrate. I've had a lot of things loosen up, crack, or come off over the years. But never an oil filter.
