Everything about these two models makes me want to put some time in at the industrial design co-op. Building a rat rod “Sumpter” would be super fun.
Great point. Maybe time for a Scion-like brand along with accompanying boutique stores? Imagine one between the bicycle shop and the Urban Outfitters (or REI/EMS) in a place like Georgetown. It could work.
Sure. Seems like a lot of their songs abt driving. This one, Be Quiet and Drive, and Minerva would be my ROCK BLOCK WEEKEND combo.
Tie between Queens of the Stone Age “You Say I Ain’t Worth a Dollar But I Feel Like a Millionaire” and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion "Greyhound."
His tattoo artist majored in Tetris ayyyyyyy!
Good stuff. It’s a shame Montlhery is abandoned—the world needs an autodrome resurgence. Have you done Michele Mouton yet??
Agreed here. I’ve been driving the Chevy Cruze/ Malibu for years now and realized that basic compacts and mid-sizes have exceeded what many luxury brands were doing 10 years ago. To say nothing of further back: my mid-90s Volvo 740 was every bit the shitbox that Colt is, and it didn’t even last as long.
I’ll never have these IQ points back and I couldn’t spare them in the first place.
You win Deadspin for the week of 2/5/18. Well done.
Well balls, Torchinsky, I was hoping this was more than an April Fools exercise... Need sources for a study in boring-ass car design. Fun story though!
Bluehole is Korean ipso facto good at making threats.
I refuse to believe Blade Runner whiskey isn’t bourbon but instead some moldy peat juice.
I was going to include this one too because I hated it! but you see I already gained enough diss tracks by badmouthing PGR3.
I’ll admit I did like the sheer amount of freedom you had in constructing tracks. I had a three stage rally that started climbing from the suburbs up to the reservoir and descending, going through the ranches, culminating in the desert. Guess I liked it more than I’m letting on.
Brian, I’m assuming this is part of the three official shorts leading up to the BR 2049 release?
This is why it baffled me when I’d get invited for a night of racing. Why would I want to race in GTA Online? Don’t these guys have Forza or nearly any other racer ever? Only racing game GTA V could ever beat: Project Gotham Racing 3.
Wow, 2483 words: what do they even mean? Dear sir or madam, congratulations/condolences re: yr recent thing. Regards, Erryone.

Mmm, maybe bad wording. I didn’t realize this was even a thing until several months back as Gamergate started getting loud again. It’s slightly amusing but of course alarming too.
The current state of disaffected alt-right hate-speech-because-it’s-fun originated in 4chan, then moved to Gamergate, then ballooned faster than a neckbeard after a Hostess outlet shopping spree. There’s a reason Palmer Luckey, pewdie pie, et al, mesh so well with alt-right groups. They is them.
