At any auction I've been to in Texas, about 25% of the bidders are looking to buy cars on the cheap and then ship them east, though usually not work trucks. Mostly high mileage lux sedans. » 12/17/14 10:53am 12/17/14 10:53am

Some people say that Salt Lick isn't the best BBQ in Austin. They instead point to some dipshit establishment like Franklin where they swear waiting in line for 4 hours is worth it. But Salt Lick in Driftwood is about the experience, the atmosphere, the intangibles. Can't be beat. » 12/11/14 3:59pm 12/11/14 3:59pm

I would assume it's running alcohol, hence being air cooled and not detonating, though the articles don't specify what type of fuel. If alcohol, then air cooled is standard. If not, that's impressive. » 12/02/14 9:57am 12/02/14 9:57am

Seems like there's always one or two decent'99 or '00 XJ Classics on Craigslist at any given point for about $4-$5k. But you're right, not like you see Grand Cherokees. » 11/21/14 3:11pm 11/21/14 3:11pm

In 2008, I bought a very clean 2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo that was a fleet vehicle with only 35k miles for $11,000 with dealer-installed new custom leather seats. Today it has about 86k miles and in its current condition I can get $8,500-$9,000 for it, maybe only slightly less. Best car decision I've ever made. » 10/29/14 10:23am 10/29/14 10:23am
