Last Call: Sausage Party Edition

Robert Emslie June 8, 2017 Last Call 12 Comments

The only downside I can see to this is shooing all the cats off your car on warm days.

Last Call indicates the end of Redusernab’s broadcast day.  It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    I have an entire family that approves this post.

    You could hang it from a curry hook, but the effect just wouldn’t be the same.

    Updated my log books yesterday and thought maybe that’s interesting…I find it funny how the Honda costs almost twice the Toyota’s expenses to keep running. It’s mainly the brakes, which require constant greasing and new parts. I felt I just did that and skipped it when switching to summer tires, but the rear is slow to retract now and I may just dump it at the shop again.

    Honda Stream – 54752km: 4024 litres of fuel for 6572$. Maintenance, parts and work: 5920$
    Total running cost: 0,39$/km …if I sell today: 0,30$/km

    Toyota Camry – 51193km: 4117 litres of fuel for 6856$. Maintenance, parts and work: 2897$
    Total running cost: 0,30$/km …if I sell today: 0,24$/km

      I always found Toyota parts to be remarkably reasonable. Their rep for reliability is built on good dealer support (for the first 10 years) as much as actual engineering. Trying to get bits for retro toyotas is a serious pain though. It can be easier to get certain bits like trim or lights for an MGB than an MR2 MK1. You’d think with the trend for Japanese manufacturers to source parts from large OEMs, moving away from the tradtional Japanese model of outsourcing this to small family run businesses, that this would be a good way to continue that admirable tradtional Japanese approach – get them to make heritage parts.

      • Sjalabais

        I think that’s coming. Japanese cars, even more ordinary ones, are becoming more and more collectable. Thus, support for earlier cars should be on the horizon. Also, some parts should be easy to come by seeing how Toyota especially is a huge fan of their parts bin.

          Service parts, no problem, but break crack a bumper or something and you need to see if someone is breaking another car. I know a guy who used to have an AE86 but sold it because he was too afraid to really use it properly (he uses his cars properly doing autotests and various other motorsport disciplines) so switched over to an older MK2 Escort, simply because you could get a replacement headlight if you cracked it for example. I do know what you mean by parts bin, there was switchgear on my MR2 Spyder that was the exact same as the MK1 MR2!

          • Sjalabais

            It’s a shame though if a guy feels he needs to sell a car he likes because he doesn’t dare use it. Never been a problem in my hands, but I have never had nor will I probably ever own a really nice car destined to raise in value.

            • crank_case

              Thing is he wanted to use it, but then he’d find himself missing events due to spares delays or just not being able to find affordable parts, hence the switch to the Escort which gets proper motorsport use, broken, repaired, upgraded and used again.

            I think I remember reading somewhere that Soichiro Honda insisted on keeping parts available for ALL of the Honda line. It was mentioned in the context of restoring a Honda S800. It mentioned the surprising availability of OEM parts well into the 1990s.

              I’d heard that regarding Honda motorcycles, but not cars.

  • Papa Van Twee

    Sorry, that air freshener wouldn’t last long in my car. I drive hungry.

    Shooing? I read it as shooting. :-
