There's lots of duplication on this list. I'm not sure why the 2.3T-powered fox-bodies, the GM '80s Turbo-V6s, and the turbo K-cars aren't just rolled into a single entry for each group. Maybe the Typhoon/Syclone deserves a separate mention from the GNX/TurboFirebird as one was the turbo 4.3L with AWD and the others… »
"Now THIS is pod racing!"
(Apologies for making you recall one of the worst lines from that terrible movie) »
"With the inclusion of over 600 supercharged horsepower, I introduce to you the all new 2016 Chevy Colorado Daaaaaaaaaam!" »
X5M is on my short list of potential post-lottery-winning DDs. I just really like the idea of something that will do 0-60 in 4 seconds while hauling 3 people and 200 pounds of dogs in comfort and can ignore chain controls.
I don't get why the X6M is more, though. That seems weird that there's a $4k premium on having… »
Was the LFA really intended as a halo car, though? I thought the LFA was an excuse to develop a bunch of new tech with the intent of trickling it down through the line-up. Toyota bragged more about the new carbon fiber loom they developed for making the windshield supports than they did the LFA's performance numbers.… »
I hate shit like this. When my kid is old enough to drive, if I don't trust them enough to drive well unless they're being spied on, I don't trust them enough to be out in a car. I'd rather they gain competency on an autocross course and then have a vehicle they can't do anything too awful stupid in rather than being… »
You know what? Give it a proper modern wheel/tire package, make the wheel covers actually fit the body, and I like it. It looks different, but in a future-retro-luxury kind of way. It looks like what I imagine a flying Caddy in the world of Fifth Element would.
It's certainly leaps and bounds above the whiskered… »
Honda: Past performance doesn't dictate current performance.
Toyota: Why be different?
Hyundai: Look past perception.
BMW: For a good time, call M67-53oDrive
Mercedes: Toyotas for a... better... class of people.
AMG: How it should have been built in the first place.
Subaru: 911… »
They're not just nice. If you do any serious wheeling, a rear locker is absolutely necessary. They won't even let you on certain organized trail rides (e.g. Sierra Trek) if you don't have one. »
I think it's fairly common knowledge, but 1st-gen Celica GT lift back and '69-'70 Mustang fastback. Especially the USDM Celicas with the tri-bar tails: »
Remind me how much more that is over a current production Raptor? Because it sounds like it's still in the ballpark. »
"They're not supposed to use the sniffer on anything 2001 or newer." Source? The only year disparities I'm aware of are that anything pre-OBDII has to also do a pressure/leak test of the fuel system and anything less than 6 MY old (or MY '75 and older) is exempt from biannual inspections. »
