That’s fascinating. I never noticed that before. The Silver Spur fuel gauge does do an interesting trick. You can see it a bit in your image. There’s a button on the dash that turns the fuel gauge into an oil gauge as evidenced by the “min oil” marker. I don’t know why Rolls went that route as opposed to a dedicated

Is Yahoo Auctions Japan still big over there? I’ve imported two kei cars (Mazda R360 & a Subaru R2) from Japan and both times that’s where I found them. And they were both solid cars, but I had a connection over there who could check them out for me. It’s been a few years since I’ve done it, though. I did do it Read more

Once you swap logos, it’s no longer a Chrysler.

True. And I can always buy a set of lion badges to replace the Chrysler ones.

Booo! I love French cars. I thought Peugeot had a nice SUV ready for the U.S.

That’s fabulous. All those little details are perfect. The original 5, despite the fact that the Le Car became a joke in the U.S., is one of the best, most important automobile designs ever and this does it justice. Hopefully I can rent one when I’m in France at some point...

I had a Gazelle once. The fancier Hillman Minx. It was pretty unremarkable to drive except for the fact that it was an old car. But it sure was handsome. Singer was like the Rootes Group’s Mercury. Cheap cars made slightly nicer.

I see shit tons of Fits every day. It sold fine. It’s a small car so the profit margin was minuscule, and Americans are suckers for ride height. Eliminate the small car and stick them in something more expensive and less practical.

That episode was fun, but the end feels anticlimactic. It’s too logical and expected. They needed to throw us a twist, or some additional complication related to Grogu’s story. Also, I don’t think anyone is sick of Grogu, so there’s no reason to abandon the Mando-Baby Yoda partnership. Who’s to say Jedi training has Read more

Any of these ares still better than strangling a bird like the really old cars had.

This really was a terrific episode. I was very impressed with how well Bill Burr can act. I really felt his speech to his old boss. What a great scene. I was fine with the episode not moving the plot forward much. It felt like the right time to ask those questions about the morality of this universe since Grogu’s Read more

I don’t disagree with any of this. However, I really liked this Boba Fett. Hopefully we get to know him a little better in the last couple episodes, but, kind of fucked up, pudgy badass works for this guy. And, Temuera Morrison did a really nice job bringing him to life with minimal material. All the honor, duty-bound Read more

The radio might freak them out more than the driving. And all the plastic. Electric windows would be pretty crazy, too.

It’s too bad you don’t know what socialism is.

It’s an excellent looking little car. I always thought the design was probably somewhat inspired by London cabs.

I see a lot of all of those here in California. I like driving a small car. Even a Civic is a bloated waste when you’re just driving yourself around. And it’s nice getting an affordable new car with a warranty.

No, it can’t actually. Sometimes the subjects of cars and politics blend together.

Ha. That sounds like fun. There are some people reproducing Isetta parts. They’re pretty well supported for a vintage microcar.

Yeah, I’ve heard that too about the Isetta. Those little cars kept the factory open. Show a little respect BMW.

It’s not for the faint of heart, but it’s mostly all there. Even if the floors are rusted out, you can cut down a Beetle floor pan for a replacement. I mean, I wouldn’t want to do it, either, but this car can be made right again.
