I understand it isn't a serious joke, but meh, to each their own. I love small (but still functionally large enough) cars like my Fiesta ST hatch. Doesn't mean I have to hate on folks who go the monstrously large daily-driver direction. I comfortably hauled four 17" wheels with their low-profile tires mounted + new replacement tires to the tire shop. Hitches and trailers are for the rare times when something larger needs hauled. I have NO desire to go big whatsoever, but the Jeeps have always appealed to me if ever went that route. But *the smartest* route would actually be an S10 type pickup truck with a Rhino type liner. (provided it won't trap water and prematurely rust the bed out)

@88ESCORTV6 - I thought about moderating it but I think our unwillingness to really engage and discuss extremist views at-length, is partially what lead to its pervasiveness. To us the ridiculousness of the message is humorous, but that guy was dead serious. From prior conversations I guarantee that at least 90% of the "information" that guy had, that lead to him creating that message, was completely false, misleading or incomplete (a.k.a. propaganda). Over the last few decades, the problem with misinformation has just gotten gradually worse, with a notably sharp increase since 2007.

I picked up a free Jerry can a while ago that came with muck like that in it, so I slowly let it drain into an old oil bottle for disposal.

Well of course I got it mixed up with proper oil and it ended up being tossed in the back of the wife's oil leaking Honda. One day she mentioned the oil light came on so she added the spare bottle of oil, but it was kind of weird and thick.
Of course I immediately drained and flushed out the lumpy sludge. Happily the car is still running fine after two years.

Yeah when it's that bad, oil pan has to come off. (at least)

Neighbor bought an Accord back in the 90s when they were running the advertisements showing someone welding the hood shut. They apparently took the ads literally because they never changed the oil. I don't recall how long it really took, but it was maybe two or three years before the engine locked up. Prior to that Honda they always bought USDM vehicles. After that, they went back to USDM LoL. IMO the Honda they had was pretty solid for the time they did have it though.

Anybody notice how HUGE that starter motor is, relative to scale?

That would be an excellent gift for an 11~18 year old who's interested in vehicles. Very neat indeed @zzyzzx . Probably pretty pricey.
