    Olds Aurora

    They come in a V6. Its the 3.5 or something. The V8 is the 4.0. The top of the line ones are very plush. The V8 is a derivative of the Northstar in the Caddie. My father leased one for a few years and he loved it. I liked it too.

    stupid chunks of retread

    I had some of that stuff kick up from the car in front of me. It landed on the hood, rolled up the windshield, across the roof and mangled the crap out of my radio antenna on the rear of the car. All this at about 75 MPH.

    Thinking about buying a Parrot... advice?

    I had a couple of keets a few years ago. One thing I can tell you is that birds are filthy animals and will require tons of maintenance on their living space. Birds will literally crap in their own food and water. Not only will the cage become full of crap but a good ten foot radius around the...

    Why does this happen? Automobile related.

    You may be tightening the cap too much. It's amazing but if the cap it too tight it will efect how the car runs. Also, I'm sure there is some kind of vent, maybe in the cap itself, that lets air in as the gas is removed. This vent, and perhaps cap itself may be bad.

    Jacksonville Jaguars Fans: Best Seating @ Alltell Stadium, any suggestions?

    I'm sure there will be plenty of available seats for most games this season as not many give the Jags much of a chance this year. Most every seat in the stadium is pretty good. If you can up your ante a bit you can get club seats for about $150 per. This is the only way I go anymore. Much better...

    Boating questons...

    Definitely dont buy new. $20K will only get you about 18 feet worth of new boat. This is certainly not enough to do the kind of boating you want to do. Used is the only way to go. Also one thing I've learned that fishing style boats are often built better, hold their value better, and are easier...

    what makes diesel fuel different than other fuel?

    Diesel is actually an oil very similar to kerosene. Gas stations actually take the kerosene they have remaining after the cold season and dump it into the diesel tanks. I believe the low octane is needed because the combustion that occurs in a diesel engine is derived purely from compressions as...

    Home Mortgage Interest Rates

    Here is what to look for. Long-term rates are almost completely independant of short-term rates. Don't decide wether to lock or not based on what you think the Fed is going to do to short-term rates. What you need to watch is is the mood of the stock market. Mortgage rates on homes fluctuate...

    Help my fridge is leaking

    Check the seals on the doors. Your fridge may be running too much for the evaporation of the wate to keep up. Also clean you coils. Older units may have them on the back. I think most of the newer units have them underneith. Just run your vaccuum cleaner over them. Should fix the problem.

    How do I get rid of carpet ants?

    Yes. Borax contains boric acid. That's why it works on pests.

    How do I get rid of carpet ants?

    Borax works great on fleas. It may work on the ants as well. It's worth a try. I'd leave the Borax on the carpet a while though. Just smash all the big chunks into the carpet and you wont even see it. I'd leave it there until you notice to ants are gone. Frankly, I've never heard of carpet ants...

    Air Conditioner Unit: Vent Open or Closed??

    Well, a central unit draws all of its aire from inside and recirculates it. I'd think this would be more efficient for a widow unit as well. The unit would be cooling already cooled air instead of the hot outside air. I believe the vent should be open only if the unit is being used as a fan only...
