Car-related information

This site hosts various information about cars that I see fit to post on the Internet.  Most of the information here relates to the “A-body” series of cars from General Motors because that's what I've spent the most time working on.

As of 8 August 2008, I no longer own an A-body (I sold it). The next day, I sold my K-car Chrysler LeBaron convertible. I do miss both cars. You might ask, “why does this guy like these 1980s jalopies so much?” Indeed, those cars offer little refinement compared to cars of the present day, and their designs are not as expressive as cars of the more distant past. But they were in fact very good cars, and nicer specimens (that is, not the stripped-down models, which constitute the bulk of production even to this day) are worth preserving.

My current fleet is just three vehicles—a 2005 Buick Park Avenue, a 1998 Dodge B1500 cargo van, and a 1984 Peugeot 505 turbodiesel sedan. The Park Avenue is a special car—it is one of the 176 “Special Edition” models that were produced to celebrate the final production of those cars. Someday I'll probably update this site with information about those vehicles, as well as anything else I feel like including. Unfortunately, keeping this site updated is a pretty low priority right now.
