I’m talking about a very happy Tesla owner who has posted an update to his will (most likely…
I’m just going to start this off with the admission that, sometimes, I’m completely baffled by people. This is one of those times.

If a streetracer wrecks his car, hurts no one, and says he's learned his lesson, should he still be brought to the police? The members of a local Honda forum responded to one such incident with a resounding yes.
A thread on StanceWorks — the popular forum for lowered and hellaflush cars — began with a proud 2001 Honda Civic owner showing off his trunk-rattling sound system and slammed car.
