Share Your Speedtests... Been A While Since We've Done This.

Many moons version of kinja ago we would regularly share our speedtests. Well... I just found out Comcrap bumped my download speed up and that brought me back to those days. So, show us what you've got. » 2/16/15 1:15pm 2/16/15 1:15pm

Seeing a lot of super low mile Taurus cop cars, anyone know why?

So I put in my pre-order and down payment in for my Charger Hellcat this past week (hopefully get it before the summer, I know I won't get it in the first allotment), and I've been searching for a suitable daily driver since then. While I'd love to rock the Hellcat every day I live in Michigan and travel all over the… » 11/19/14 10:07pm 11/19/14 10:07pm

4 Apps Every Business Traveler Should Use

Mornin Oppo! So, I have a nickname amongst my co-workers and fellow road warriors, they call me "The App Man". Why? Because I live by the mantra that the internet can solve any problem or help complete any task. Apps/Web Services typically offer three things I love, effeciency, affordability, and a high level of… » 9/10/14 12:35pm 9/10/14 12:35pm

Here's Why You Need To Go To The Henry Ford Museum RIGHT NOW!

Friends, Family, Fellow Jalops I come bearing urgent news. The car you're looking at in the above picture is the GT40 Mark I Chassis # 1075 currently on display at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. Why is this significant? Because it won at Le Mans. Once? HA! No, that chassis won TWICE. In 1968 and 69. It was… » 8/27/14 10:28am 8/27/14 10:28am

Unofficial Oppo Daytona 24hrs Chat and Stream

It's nearing hour 12, and we're still going strong. Lots of jokes about MRN, if you're not in the chat you'll never get why "food show" is the funniest thing I've heard in weeks. Get it while it's hot. » 1/26/14 1:24am 1/26/14 1:24am

Oculus Rift Running in iRacing

So... I got my hands on an Oculus Rift today (edit: yesterday, just realized it's 6am here! Wow... I need to go to bed), and just spent the last few hours rockin it in iRacing... it's pretty trippy to be honest. The hardest part was getting used to turning my head to look into corners/change your field of view. I… » 12/21/13 6:06am 12/21/13 6:06am

Any Opponauts on iRacing?

So I finally got my racing cockpit reassembled after its 500 mile move (it got bent out of square in the moving truck, took me days to get it back in shape). » 12/14/13 6:10pm 12/14/13 6:10pm

Look What The UPS Man Delivered!

As soon as I saw this picture of the Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo I knew it had to hang on my wall... so I ordered a canvas print of it and 4 days later Mr. UPS Guy delivered this! It's 16" x 20" and looks fantastic. It has a sort of super high detail painting look to it, I'm not sure how they do it but I really… » 11/23/13 5:08pm 11/23/13 5:08pm

Unintentional Modernized General Lee

I was up at the vacation house in northern Michigan this past weekend and the massive storm that blew through took out my flag pole (and later a tree, that rocked me out of bed but that's a story for another time). So, I ran out to fetch the flag so it didn't end up miles away, I wanted to lay it out somewhere to dry,… » 11/20/13 2:15am 11/20/13 2:15am

Lets See How Fast You Connect To The Series of Tubes

Alright Oppo, it has been a pretty long time since I've seen this round here (maybe it's because I've been on oppo pretty sporadically since the last Kinja update but moving on). » 11/01/13 5:17pm 11/01/13 5:17pm

A Slight Carbon Monoxide Scare Got Me Thinking...

It's almost 2am and my gears are turning from an incident I had earlier. So I just bought a condo that's 3 total stories tall, my garage is on the bottom floor, I go up two flights of stairs and enter my main living space (I have a downstairs neighbor that only has one set of stairs), so I'm a whole unit away… » 11/01/13 1:59am 11/01/13 1:59am

The 300C Touring Is The Most Jalop Car You've Never Heard Of

So we started discussing it in my previous post about upgrading a Dodge Magnum to the Gen 2 LH platform design language, but since it seemed nobody really knows much about this vehicle I'd share the story of how it came to be, and why it's the absolute most Jalop car produced by a US manufacturer, and many of you… » 9/03/13 3:00am 9/03/13 3:00am

Custom Gen 2 Dodge Magnum?

My head always gets aflutter with new car customizations and odd swaps. Today one occurred to me that hasn't really been fully executed. It would be a full Gen 2 LX conversion on a Dodge Magnum, so the front clip from a 2012 Charger, a German company has done this... but I feel they kind of half-assed it, look at the… » 9/02/13 8:41pm 9/02/13 8:41pm
