I'm finally going to sell my semi-legendary 1998 Accord, and I'm looking for advice on the best way to sell a car that, in looks, isn't up to even the "Fair" rating at the bottom of Kelly Blue Book. The car, a V6, still goes like a bat out of hell with remarkable acceleration, but... Read More
is the "Not a Bus" concept in "#147 - Public Transportation That Is Not a Bus." Christian Lander developed my basic point nicely:The book is on Amazon for $11.80.

After years of having the shortest commutes in LA history, we now have to do some serious driving, so I've been thinking about gas mileage, but I'm making no progress with my thinking. Hopefully, my 10 year old sedan won't collapse anytime soon, but it's making weird shimmying motions, so I've started to look at... Read More
