    New Daily Beater (Version 2019)

    As some of you already know, my daily beater Scion (the ShitBox) got totalled by some idiot texting on his phone not too long ago



    Been on the hunt for a replacement ever since

    Now, I wanted sumthin with a bit more space since I tend to spend A LOT of time in my vehicle while at work (job is super laid back)

    Figured I'd treat myself to a little upgrade, but as much as I wanted to get a GX, I just couldn't justify getting another gas guzzler with my 90 mile daily commute

    Instead, I went with this pimpmobile

    I actually would have been more on board if you wouldn't have gotten a loaded one with the intent to have a mattress back there.

    Who gives a fuck if the back seats recline. I ain't going to riding there.....

    All that said I am most certainly NOT a mini van hater.

    I'm sure you're going to cool it up with train horns, a 10" lift with 37"'s, an LED light bar or 2 and more cameras then Paramount Pictures has.

    Sizing it up for the OBA tanks right now

    Unfortunately, not much space for the big guns

    Might have to settle for the WalMart horns for now

    As much as I want one, they're just way too hard to find

    Those who have them are holding onto them and the only ones listed are usually beat to shit

    Anyhoo, a couple more videos

    Drove the new beater van to NY yesterday and stopped off in Georgia for gas

    As I was pulling out, some lady in a red car blindly tried to make her way across an intersection and got nailed by another car

    After getting nailed, her car hopped over the median and she actually bailed as her car rolled down into a ditch and came to rest on support cables for a pole pole





    Now, the next video is actually quite embarrassing for me

    Drove from Orlando to NY non stop as I've done on countless ocassions, but this time around, I had already been up for 7 hours before hitting the road

    Made decent time as I left the house in Orlando around 1:30pm and crossed the Verarzano around 5am, but then hit a bunch of traffic on the Belt

    I was dead tired and the stop and go traffic didn't help the situation

    Should've stopped and take power nap or sumthin, but I was already so close to the house that I pushed myself.

    Ended up dozing off behind the wheel

    I would've rolled right into the car in front of me, but the PCS kicked in and stopped it just in time

    It startled me and when I came to, all I remember was seeing a white GX470 in my rear view mirror about to rear end me, so I panicked and hit the gas

    Luckily, no one got hurt and a collision was avoided



    I must say, I've talked so much shit in the past about newer cars with these systems only creating dumber drivers, but in this case it definitely saved the day

    One thing's for sure, I was WIDE AWAKE the rest of the way home lol

    People who fall asleep while driving are just as bad as drunk drivers.

    Change my mind.

    Mini 0906 (dual cam) and a B1W for an interior shot hardwired with LVC parking kits in the fuse panel












    I would've liked to mount the rear cam on the glass itself like I did with the XB, but hiding the cable while leaving enough slack for the rear hatch to open and close will be a chore

    No matter how “detailed” a dealer does a car, I love doing it myself. Sometimes spend hours on a nice day doing the old Civic Click image for larger version.

    While here in NY, I've had the PCS warning light flash several times in close nit traffic, but it hasn't applied braking like it did when i fell asleep

    Well, tonight, for no reason at all, the PCS kicked in and applied hard braking while going over Railroad tracks

    No traffic, no obstacles, not a train in sight, but it slammed on teh brakes hard enough to make the tires screech

    Scared the hell out of me

    PCS activated over the same Railroad tracks again

    This time, it tightned up my seatbelt and applied the brakes even harder, locking up the wheels over the rails for a split second

    In the late 80s/early 90s Toyota and Honda, and to a lesser extent Nissan, really over-engineered their cars (maybe with the exception of rust prevention) and basically cemented their reputations. It's been a slow decline ever since (although quite fast for Nissan).
