They don’t make the foreign brands park farther away. They just put handicapped parking closer...
I love my EJ25.
I wish a car brand could be as fun today as Subaru was in the early days.
I think we found the 12 year old... or at least someone with the mentality of one.
If Saab was able to figure out how to electronically operate a clutch (Saab Sensonic 900NG) in the mid 1990s, I would think Subaru should be able to figure out how to depress the clutch electronically in the event of an emergency stop. Just my thought.
It’s the trombone of cars.
I want a manually operated CVT. Give me a stick that I can slide fore and aft. Infinity speed manual transmission.
Subaru wants to have the safest cars in the world and the manual transmission, the one good thing left in this world, is holding that up, according to a report from AutoExpress. That led an executive at Subaru U.K. to give us all a big scare, with ideas of a future where BRZs and WRX STIs all shift their own gears.
In the UK if you have a car on the street without insurance, you’re committing a crime. End of story. And to be honest this would have been picked up by pretty quickly by a traffic warden anyway; they do DVLA checks for tax as they go now (because UK cars don’t have tax discs anymore), and no insurance would mean no…
I see lots of people with my school with full-size trucks. Ford Raptors and such.
Hotter take: almost no one needs a truck
In fact, its easier not having to worry about anything blowing out. There’s a reason I see so many handymen using Suburbans.
Yup, my friends 528i. The timing chain guides disintegrated with no warning, so it’s very dead. It’s a special order interior in amazing shape, so he pulled it out to put in another E39.
Well, wonder no more.
Toyota Mark II Blit 2.5iR-V. Factory 1JZ-GTE wagon. A bit odd-looking and auto-only, but stupid cheap and a manual swap isn’t too much of a nightmare. Only 9 more years...
For anyone that’s interested, because I was and did a little searching. Jim did his run using a somewhat modified ex-Kurt Busch NASCAR Dodge Charger superspeedway car. He maintained an average speed of 217.557 mph over 90 miles! And blew through the speed trap at 243.7 mph.
It blows me away what governments are able to accomplish by way of these dick measuring contests. The Manhattan Project, space race, Nazi technology... Can you imagine if Trump and Putin were somehow convinced that the first nation to become carbon neutral would ‘win’?
Small engines, generators, snowmobile engines, pumps, agricultural equipment, etc, etc.
