    Buying American and a thought experiment

    I've always wondered if I could convince a manufacturer to sell me an unassembled vehicle. Bare metal as well. Dear gods, the improvements you could make in just rustproofing alone...... Step one..... send everything out to be galvanized.....

    What did you do to your Ranger today? (Part Deux!)

    Look man. We live in uncertain times. I'm just sayin. Your vehicles security system should be tiered - first you get the beeping and the flashing, and if you're dumb enough to keep going, well, hit the afterburner
