I guess A for effort?

I find this whole big wheel trend to be quite dumb, BTW. The only thing a bigger wheel does better is looks. They suck at everything else like performance and fuel economy.

Those cool 19" wheels on those new family cars are all 30+ pounds.

Now if you get forged wheels, then yes, you can improve your cornering, but you know the rule:

Big, light, cheap, pick two.

I guess that you start to grade on a curve after seeing all of the awful things on this thread.

Doesn't look like the police car caught on fire because it was going too fast. To me, it looks like the catalytic converter lit the tall grass below it on fire.

Why do they pull over on the left side of the road, anyway?

I lived in Florida for a long time. We all knew not to park on the tall grass when it was dry. Still had one friend lose a car to parking in the grass. (Common to park on grass lots/yards. Few curbs in much of FL.)

Because the speeder was an idiot. But would have been the same on the right side.

I am not actually sure this will run... It's be hilarious if it does.

I'm old enough to remember when cats first came out in '75.
IIrc, some cars had warning stickers on the visors about not parking in grass.

What REALLY not to do to your car.
This crap disgusts me.
Ought to be illegal.
I hope a Sgt. Donowitz wannabe takes care of this a-hole.

Absolutely agree. That guy is a disgusting flaming a-hole.

Absolutely do not agree.
If you think speech you find disgusting should be banned, you do not understand what Sgt. Donowitz was fighting for.
Someday somebody disgusting might get power, find what you think and say is disgusting, and use that power to ban disgusting speech to ban you.
Americans fought and died fighting a-holes so that nobody can tell you what you can say or think.

You are wrong.
You CAN'T say whatever you want.
You can say things in public that WILL get you arrested.

Germany has banned this type of display for a reason.

These ***** are becoming emboldened here because they can get away with it.
They have even infiltrated U.S. Military units.
See the neo-**** Atomwaffen group.
They are advocating violence, and in many cases, people are dying because of it.

Just like you can't yell "FIRE!" in a crowded movie house, there are Hate Crime laws now to prosecute people who ferment political or religious hatred against groups of people.
The recent synagogue massacre is a perfect example of that mentality which has manipulated people into murder.
The 1st amendment does not give people carte blanche.
Inciting Riot is a crime based on speech.

The way I see it, yes, you can say whatever you want, but whatever you say, you have to stand behind them and be responsible of any consequences.

Feel free to leave that sticker on your truck. Just don't be surprised if your potential employers see them and decide not to hire you, or most people seem to avoid you.
