A Macan-based Lambo for $150k-175k would sell a shit ton more than a new Jarama. Not my idea of a good time, but that’s the world we live in.

Huh. This is far cheaper than I had been led to believe by Matt Farah’s podcast. Actually kind of a bargain, in a way. You could get a Bentley Bentayga, or you could have a completely Bugatti Type 35 recreation. I know which one won’t be on a buy-here-pay-here lot in 10 years.

Wait, what shop is that? Half a million sounds cheap for a decent recreation. It’s a lot cheaper than Pur Sang will charge you for a re-created pre-war Bugatti.

That was exactly what I thought, too. I’m guessing there are a couple of old-money British patriots on the buyer list that will spec theirs more tastefully, but you’ll never see them except maybe in the paddock at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Read more

Martha refused to provide evidence against Sam Waksal and his brother Harlan. They were respectively the CEO and CFO of ImClone, the company whose stock she allegedly traded with insider knowledge. Read more

The reduction in wind noise is meaningful. I’ve been in several 2019-model cars that were so quiet, the dominant noise was the wind over the mirror fairings.

*facepalm* - yeah, actually I did miss the “2 car seats.” Well, I guess he’s getting a Benz or a Lexus.

^^^ This. If you’re carpooling your kids and their friends to soccer / hockey / gymnastic / etc., you need a Suburban with luggage space behind the third row for all the backpacks and stuff.

How much can changes in the injection molded parts change the resistance and force characteristics of the switch, and the sound that it makes? For example, take GM’s turn signal stalks. They all seem to make a “cracking” noise as you use them, and there’s usually a big decrease in force once you get it past the Read more

Castro was a well-liked Cabinet member under Obama and has shown that he can win big elections in Texas. He probably doesn’t have the name recognition to win the general, but he’d make a fantastic Vice President. I get the sense that the DNC knows this and is supportive of him.

SFMTA should indeed build more subways, and they should connect to BART at Glen Park, 24th, and 16th. The stupid-as-fuck bus lanes on Geary and Van Ness should have been light rail of the type used on the 3rd St. corridor. Read more

Read the other lines in that table: 38% commute by car alone. 11% carpool, which is also commuting in a car. There is also 17.0% in the “other” category, which includes taking a taxi to work. Read more

What I’m telling you is that my commute is reflective of the commute choices of many other people. Did you know that half of San Francisco residents still commute to work by car?   Read more

I definitely need a car to do my actual job, which frequently takes me to the Peninsula and the East Bay. But the commute to my main office in the FiDi takes 45-60 minutes via public transit and 15-30 via car. So by suggesting that I give up my car (or Uber / Lyft), you’re really saying that I should subtract 30-60 Read more

Yes, but that’s certainly not my response. I would just like serious investment in light rail, subways, and pedestrian bridges before we start subtracting lanes from existing streets. Read more
