A Site That Should Exist (But Doesn’t, Right?)

Here’s a site that should exist: a Wikipedia-like site for cars.

Think about it. If a mechanic tells you that your CV joints are in trouble, what are you going to do? You might Google “cv joints” and then filter through the results. But it’d be a hell of a lot nicer if there was a site that acted as a car encyclopedia and told you what all of those parts did, how often they should be fixed/replaced/maintained, and – ideally – the average cost of repair.

It’s something that would be way too overwhelming for one person to do, but throw a large community of people at it and now you’re talkin’.

Incidentally, if this already exists, please let me know.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
