    What do I do? Salvaged car in CA?? Insurance company never sent paperwork...

    As some may have read, my car was 'totaled' by a dent to the hatch and rear light section, leaving it driveable but according to the insurance agent, a salvaged vehicle. I have a problem (sort of) though, nobody sent me paperwork to do or a notice to get the car inspected (lights, etc...) That...

    My supra (and first car) has been deemed a total loss, should I keep it for later?

    I'm at a crossroads with my supra, it just had some cosmetic damage from a wreck and I have to choose whether to keep it as a salvage title, or sell it and part ways with it. I've had it seven or eight years and it's been faithful and a great learning tool that taught me a lot. I've done the...

    Trying to get a title for a car in California without much help from the owner?

    I'm trying to get a car that's neglected and abandoned by it's owner in the owner's wooded property. It's going to need to be on a trailer 240 miles back to my home. Both locations are in California, where the car will be registered non-op, but I'm currently unsure of it's registration status...

    Opinion on this supra?

    I have a 1986.5 n/a 5spd and I've wanted a turbo for years. Never driven a turbo, I've only ridden in a turbo silvia..that's the closest to boost I've been. Right now I'm getting 20mpg, I'd like a little more, and I've heard a good turbo engine might get better economy out of boost (well I will...

    what is inside stock resonator? hollow? mine us buzzing badly

    EDIT: I got the back section off a lot easier than anticipated, I'm going to cut the top off of the resonator and look for myself, clean it up, and weld it shut. It's rusted through in a small spot, so I have to patch it anyway. It says made in the USA too...sadly. Do foreign parts hold up...

    Bitcoins, and Bitcoin Mining...?

    Anyone here do it? I somehow just learned about it (apparently it's been around since 2009...oh well ). I will participate in folding to help with that someday but I am apprehensive to consider bitcoin mining. It sounds a lot like a new stock market with the way it fluctuates, and doesn't...

    Looking for Forza 4 users, and Steam users to play against!

    On the off chance I'm playing when someone else is, I thought it would be cool to get some accounts of supramania users who play forza 4, or steam. I'm not terribly good at any game, but I'm not a complete sucky driver in forza 4, and I've played racing games for...forever. I'd like to get...

    Found a dead computer, hard drive has files...should I get the drive to the owner?

    I picked up a laptop that someone had thrown out, it didn't work, someone has spilled liquid on it and it ended up in a donation bin. I wanted to see if I could get it to work (figured it was a brick). Well, I stuck the hard drive in my working computer and it's perfectly fine. I did however...

    Help me pick a website URL for my business! (with pics I'm a photographer, come see)

    If you could let me know what you think is your favorite and why, it will really help me decide. Just like my art, I have to know what people think or I won't go anywhere. This is one of many important things in marketing myself, and I want to get it right on the first try so I don't have to...

    Minor auto accident injury experiences? I'd appreciate feedback!

    Minor auto accident injury experiences? FINALLY resolved. EDIT for recent events: I'm finally healed and settled on the lawsuit I ended up filing against the party at fault, to get their insurance to pay up. Ironically their insurance company is the major owner of my subsidiary insurance...

    Ultra High Performance Summer or All Season? Kumho Ecsta SPT and ASX vs others

    I wore out my Kumho Ecsta ASX's, or down to the wear bars at least, and one tire has worn a lot more on the inside because I didn't rotate them and I have a screwed-up left rear toe-in... (wreck and a shoddy subframe weld I didn't know about) ANYWAY, I realized after reading that SPT's might...

    Credit Cards - What is the best? Looking to get some rewards without a headache..

    I'm looking to build my credit and hopefully earn rewards through one of the many available credit card companies. It would be one of my first cards so I figure I'd research it a bit before delving into a company that isn't good to deal with. I got a Target card and that proved to be a bit of...

    Rebuilding calipers, I have a little pitting in the cylinder...is that bad?

    I'm guessing it's not good but I'm not sure if I need to get a new/reman. set of brake calipers, the cylinder was sludged up and has some residue on the walls, and the pitting is about halfway down into the cylinder. I'm not familiar enough to know if this is of much concern. I have the new...

    New brake rotors; bad to have one be a tiny bit different?

    I recently bought some new OEM replacement rotors through a friend with a small business (saved some cash), and both rears are from the same company but one of the fronts is slightly different from the other. As I understand it they're probably all made in the same factory, but there are...

    BHG dream last night. GAH.

    Could be attributed to the gurgling in my heater core last night, it's a slight gurgle i've been ignoring. ANYWAY...the dream, I think was a BHG one..... I could have left the radiator cap off. :3d_frown: For some reason I drove into Kragen and one of the employees saw liquid under my...

    Should I trade my Supra for a Ford Taurus as a new DD?

    Well...I'm going to school, just got a part-time job...so I'll have money coming in again. Regardless, I travel 30 minutes one way to school 5 days a week, and 21mpg on my 1986.5 N/A supra is feeling a bit expensive. I am entertaining the idea of a trade for a newer, much more boring, dumb...
