Just how fast do you walk, Xist? I think an aero-do may be solving a problem that isn't there.

FWIW, I use a #3.

Look! The forums are active! Of all possible topics, why are you guys discussing this one?

I have had several people tell me that they walked 4 MPH.

They did not.

That girlfriend that passed away claimed to walk a mile in 15 minutes, but I struggled to get her to keep up with the old people in stores.

I have never been passed while walking, but I have passed joggers, and one college student on a bike.

Nonetheless, I got a haircut so that my client couldn't grab my hair anymore, not because I was concerned with aerodynamics.

Craigslist informed me of this 2008 Prius with just 357,000 miles. The car was driving fine, suddenly it lost power, so they "pulled over immediately and did not drive it any further."

Did they get it towed or is it still on the side of the road?

"Idles very rough and is leaking oil."

"I’m not a mechanic."

Where is it leaking oil?!

I stay outta both mostly--the Lounge and its antechamber, too. Don't need to vent my frustration or blow a 50 amp fuse here.

EDIT: bless me, father, for I have sinned.

2007 Yaris 5-speed

$1000





260k km = 162k miles



Needs a brake line and rust repair in the usual Yaris location.


Quote:
We are selling our 2007 Yaris - it's a great car, still lots of life left in it at 260,000kms. A brake line needs replacing hence the low price. The average price for a Yaris of this age and kms is $2000-2500. We are selling it 'as is'. It has one section of rust around the rear wheel well (see pic) and a light surface scratch on the hood from loading a kayak, plus a small chunk out of the plastic bumper (see pic) otherwise body is good for its age. These imperfections are factored into the reduced price. No low ball offers please. It has been well taken care of, mostly highway driving. AC works well and it has a decent after-market stereo. . Includes a set of winter tires on rims in good shape, only a few seasons old.
