I had found an article saying you might have to file off part of the connector.
As it turns out those were corrados and mk3 cars. Mine is the first mk4 off the boat and the replacement part was the identical bosche part, so it clicked right in.
And for all the coolant that got all over the place, it wasn't really all that much spilled, and I didn't rip the hoses or anything. Worked out really well all things considered.

Today I found out what an auto bystarter is.
In the old days we used to call it a "choke" or an "electronic choke" but being all far east apparently it translates as 'auto bystarter'.

I took a 1954 Plymouth Belvedere for a ride the other night. Not a hot rod
(straight-6) but pretty cool.

The slant-6 was a straight-6. I don't know if the 6 in the cars from the 50's
was the same as the slant-6 that Chrysler was famous for using, into the late
70's.

Right. And I can already do most of that with my verizon bandwidth card. So it's not chrysler enabling the stupidity. It's already there.

I had this neat idea last week. Maybe I mentioed it already.
If you're on a motorcycle and don't want to wait the two minutes for the red light to not notice you, I don't see what stops you from getting off your bike, turning off the engine, and walking it in the crosswalk just like any pedestrian walking a bicycle. Get back on on the other side of the road and scoot off.

I'm having a really hard time finding anything about any NYS law about running the red after two minutes of the sensor not noticing you.

I don't know that any state has such a statute, or such an exemption...but in NJ, in 1991, I sat, on my 1982 Yamaha Maxim, for 15 minutes, waiting for the light to change...when I finally gave up and turned through the light, in spite of making sure that there was no traffic coming in any direction, a cop that was hiding behind an auto repair shop pulled me over for going through the red light.

Search for state laws that define motorized vehicles.  A motorcycle that is being walked may still be a motorcycle, such as a car is still a car even if you are pushing it. The line may be in the size of the motor/engine (HP/CC's).  I know a fellow who received a DWI for pushing his motorcycle along the sholder while intoxicated, mind you, that was in Ontario.

It occcurred to me today that laws mostly exist to keep cops in business.
Most people are mostly law abiding.
The laws they don't abide by aren't terribly important laws for the sake of the survival of society (ie, society won't collapse if I do 20 over the speed limit)
So basically these laws exist to keep the police/justic system busy because they're not neccesary for the actual goal of the purpose of law enforcement.
Obviously it's called law enforcement and not 'save society system' because this leaves an open field of make-whatever-laws-you-want and these guys will enforce them.
Why do we have laws?

Exactly. You've caught on, now you have to be neutralized.

Officially Official: GM reveals the 2011 Chevy Volt!

 

Everyone who has been waiting with bated breath for the past year and a half to see the production version of the Chevy Volt can now breathe a big sigh of relief. After some extremely unflattering press shots shots were accidentally released last week, people were extremely disappointed with what appeared to be little more than a Prius clone. Anyone who spends time photographing cars knows how hard it can be to make them look good and how easy it is to make them look really awful. Unfortunately, those shots that were unapproved and never supposed to be released anyway fell into the latter category.

The car that GM rolled out this morning as part of its centennial celebration in Detroit is a much more attractive machine that while different from the concept is still very attractive. Rather than the egg shape look we saw, it's actually much more like the car we saw in the Transformers 2 spy pics a few weeks back. The greenhouse is longer and the raked back windshield gives a very slick look. Perhaps the most controversial aspect of the design is the black trim around the side windows. The thick black border along the lower edge is meant to recall the transparent beltline of the concept. It definitely works better in darker colors where there is less contrast. On the inside, a fully configurable LCD instrument cluster allows different drivers to select the gauges they want to see. Overall the design team appears to have created a car that while certainly more mainstream than the concept, is still recognizable as the Volt and something different from the Japanese brand hybrids.
