If you were new to bellowing, rip-snorting massive power I'd recommend the SLS or Lambo, for pyrotechnics from the rear end and aural sex. However, since you've had the Cobra and Suburban and an A, what you HAVEN'T experienced is the thrill of putting the world in fast-forward and playing at being a slot car. I… Read more
You, sir-or-madam, are correct, however after the initial release (WELL before my time) it kept on coming back. From Wikipedia: "After its initial theatrical run, it was re-released to theaters four more times: January 1969, June 1979, December 1985, and July 1991." Read more
Although there are a lot of great ones, I have a soft spot for this one.
I was taken to this movie's theatrical rerelease in 1985, as a wee nipper. Despite loving dogs, what made the biggest impression upon me (and inspired that combination of fizzy feeling and sheer aural / visual awestruckness) was precisely this fleeting part of the chase scene.

No love for the yummy NUMMI collaboration?

You're welcome, Mz. Didn't Grasp The Statistically-Based Rebuttal Of Deliberate Ism. Happy to be of service.
Look. We can all acknowledge that racism, sexism, and classism exist. And while we are working to change them, this means that there are a few generations of people out there who the isms have applied to more heavily than this current generation of babies. Read more
I'm all about functionality. I can lift 200+ pounds, walk a couple miles on level ground without puffing like mad, stay awake for 40 hours without stimulants, function on 6 hours of sleep a night, eat vending machine 'sandwiches' and keep going. Yet I weigh 260 pounds, 44" waist, and have moobs and the beginning of… Read more
Sir Truckington-Browne has been wondering what took you chaps so long.
And are they going to cut some fat out of the car as well, to make up for a peaky little devil of a powerplant? Or is this going to be the screaming high-rev heart of a S2000 in the landwhale body of this century's sedans so far, meaning that you're going to sound like a Block-level hoon as you struggle to climb every… Read more
