Hey @P-B I just bought this dash cam:
But haven't installed it yet, was thinking about returning it for this one:
https://www.amazon.com/VAVA-Wide-An...4137003&sr=8-2&keywords=vava dashboard camera
Thoughts? I'm not sure I really need the rear camera, seems like a pain in the ass running the wire all the way up, and I'm not not even sure what they gave me is long enough for my SUV.
I have a tailgater problem, so there's no way I'd drive without the rear cam. I have the Rexing S500, but if I had to replace it, I might go with the the V1. It has better reviews than what I'm running, and is cheaper. I don't know anything about the VAVA, never heard of it before.
What kind of SUV do you have? The cord that came with mine was ~9 feet long, and I had to tuck a couple of feet of it into the headliner, and that's running it from the cam on the driver's side across to the passenger side and back.
2016 Explorer. I'm not exactly sure how long the cord is, probably the same, just from eyeing it for some reason doesn't seem like it's long enough. I'll have to mess around with it this weekend.
Tuck it in the seams. You may have trouble around the B pillar. I left mine exposed there.
Dunno. There was no info with the pic.
This Dream Car with gullwing doors was home built in (approx) 1955 by Almar Nordhaug, a Norwegian expat who lived in Tórshavn on the Faroe Islands. The futuristic build was based on a Vauxhall Cresta chassis, engine and drivetrain. The body was handmade, and the roof was taken from an airplane. In 1957 Nordhaug returned to Norway bringing his car with him.

I love this part...
By then hull designs were changing and engine performance was ratcheting upward with big block Chevys and 426 Hemis appearing when there hadn’t been any, and so Cream Puff eventually got dumped behind a trade school in Gardena, forgotten for 25 years until John dragged it home in 1991. Says John, “Rudy knew I was looking for it and had the gearbox, or V-drive, which was the key to doing this. I paid Rudy a few grand for the V-drive and got the boat for free. He also had a few other bits and pieces so that was a good start.”
What kind of shape was it in? Says John, “When I found it, it was lying on the ground painted powder blue with a rattle can, with swarms of mosquitos flying around from standing water inside. It was horrific. When I brought it home my wife screamed, ‘You have STUPID stamped on your forehead!’”
Superfly lives. A first for me but it could use a set of wide white walls.
Granada. Has a Starsky and Hutch vibe as if they down sized. I like it.
