My problem with the LFA - and I've said this many times before - is that it looks unfinished. It looks like remote-control car; the body seems to be just draped over the chassis and feels about a 1/2 size too big for it. » 1/26/15 5:55pm Yesterday 5:55pm

So here's the thing about the V60. When I was a kid, Volvo wagons could be purchased by average income earners. Hell, we had one in 1983, at the same time my parents were trying to manage a 21% mortgage (the early '80s were scary). We didn't make lots of money. Today you'd call us middle-middle class. » 1/26/15 11:41am Yesterday 11:41am

I'm not a gamer so I really have no opinion regarding the content of games, specifically. However as a societal viewing port it still amazes me that Americans are just fine with extremely graphic violence, but holy jumping Je-bus don't show naked human bodies or sex. » 1/21/15 6:43pm Wednesday 6:43pm

As a car it's terrible. As a Lamborghini it's brilliant. Lambos are supposed to be over the top. You should be able to imagine flame throwers and machine guns popping out of them. This thing looks like it should be fighting battles in space. » 1/21/15 4:45pm 1/21/15 4:45pm

Congrats Doug. I love that you're importing something - especially as it's RHD. I would have been more excited if it was the Delta Integrale - mostly because I was looking forward to posts where you literally wept over trying to find parts. » 1/21/15 3:37pm 1/21/15 3:37pm

My brother-in-law is a BB devotee... for work. For work he needs constant, secure email and text communications on a phone that he can speed type on. The BB works better than anything else on the planet for this one task. » 1/21/15 1:17pm 1/21/15 1:17pm

You could build these from new 2x6 lumber for about $50... including the screws and PL Glue. And, they're a whole hell of a lot more stable than the manufactured ones in the article. Just make sure you have a centre brace in each level, and wheel stops on each side. » 1/21/15 12:46pm 1/21/15 12:46pm

Why not just handle footballs like hockey handles pucks? Pucks are kept in the timekeepers booth at ice level. They are issued to the referees as needed. It doesn't matter who provides the pucks as there is no way to really screw around with the dynamics of them. » 1/21/15 11:40am 1/21/15 11:40am
