Can't say enough good stuff about the whole Henry Ford complex. I've been going since I was a kid, and my wife and I have been members for years. I take the kids there in the winter probably every other week, because it's a huge indoor space to run around in. In spite of having gone dozens upon dozens of times, I… » 8/27/14 11:49am Wednesday 11:49am

Blah blah snow tires blah. We got over a hundred inches last year and I didn't have any issues in a Miata or E36. Up where my parents are in northern michigan, my dad got through a 220 inch season in an E39. » 8/27/14 7:48am Wednesday 7:48am

More "lonely… » 8/08/14 2:44pm 8/08/14 2:44pm

When I was in the market for a sedan to replace a coupe a couple years ago, it was a lot harder to find a solid M3 sedan than a coupe and prices were higher. I've gotten more "ooh, awesome! a sedan!" comments than I can shake a stick at. » 7/31/14 4:38pm 7/31/14 4:38pm

If you care about accuracy, you can't even use them interchangeably on earth. The earth spins, so your measured weight on the equator is about 0.5% lower than it is at the poles. Likewise it varies with distance from the center of the earth, so altitude matters. In an airplane at cruising height, you weigh… » 7/30/14 11:30am 7/30/14 11:30am
