Isolation Tasks

I've been home since April 6.Colorado's governor has issued, as many other states have, "shelter in place" orders but it hasn't really impacted one's movement much.  I wonder if more draconian measures are in the offing.In the meantime though, I've several items to get done/fixed.Task 1: (completed)My failed attempt to stretch the tongue of the Aluma 638 trailer, caused stresses for which I continue to pay for.  You might recall, I'd had it lengthened by two feet to give some turn clearance when...

Remembering Sir Stirling Moss, 1929 – 2020

Sir Stirling Moss died on April 12th at the ripe old age of 90. Justifiably called the greatest driver never to have won the World Championship, Moss was like something out of a comic book. Before angry cops would growl, “Who do you think you are, Mario Andretti?” during a traffic stop, it was “Who do you think you are, Stirling Moss?” In a lot of ways, Moss was the last of his era. Although he was bridging the gap from the 1950s into the 60s when his career was tragically cut short by an acc...

More Power on the Way for Kia Stinger?

It’s a car-heavy day here at TTAC, and thank God for that.

That said, it’s hard to think of a mainstream automaker that offers more choice in cars than Kia Motors, […] The post More Power on the Way for Kia Stinger? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Review – Second Glances, Second Chances

When I first drove the newest generation of Toyota’s popular RAV4, I was lukewarm on the hybrid model. I liked the previous-gen hybrid better. At the time, I wrote that the best new RAV4, in this reviewer’s opinion, is the Adventure trim.
