Replaced the Samsung front loader washer that broke within 3 years with a cheap GE model (mechanical knobs, minimal settings) and couldn’t be happ...

re: Wrangler vs. Tacoma - martiansgohome
Had a JK with starter/cylinder head issues. Nothing like being stranded in a new vehicle. Have several friends with Tacomas. Interiors seemed cheap and I didn’t like the handling on the highway. Isn’t the Colorado getting good reviews? I’d wait until the Ford Ranger gets reintroduced to the U.S....

[quote]I saw him a couple of days later in Deadhorse. This poor bastard was covered in shite from head to toe.

re: USAF looking for a low cost light attack fighter for the war on terror - martiansgohome
Why not rebuild the A-10 platform? Even better, restart the production line for low rate production with updated technology. Or let the damn Army have the A-10 and stop being petty little bitches hiding behind the Key West Accords. Between the A-10 and the C27J, I hope a Trump administration comes i...
