So I’ve been down in Miami this week with my brother meeting with chefs and natural food stores about his brainchild Replantable (check it out if you’d like: www.replantable.com). It has been a great retreat from the Pennsylvania cold. The car spotting is great, but I’ve been slow with my camera and didn’t catch any…
I was finally starting to look past the horrific styling and recognize how well packaged it is, how cavernous the trunk opening is, and how pretty the paint color is. I should have left it at that, but thinking a brand new car turbo HAS to be pretty good to drive, I took it for a spin.
These exist. Are they any good though? I’ve driven the second gen in 35i trim and I consider it one of the only performance SUVs I take seriously. Srt Cherokee, tbSS, and Cayenne obviously make the list too, but I’m curious as to whether the old x5 is decent to drive. Definitely not very quick in a straight line.
So despite the season kinda sizzling out for the Hokies, we still landed a solid bowl game. The Camping World Bowl (questionable name) in Orlando vs. Oklahoma State. My brother was able to secure free tickets with parking through his company, so it was a no brainer for me to make the trek. And you know what that…
Spent the past couple winters with the two 4runners and my r50 pathfinder. Before that was an AWD Volvo S70 which was also a bit of a tank in the snow.
The Volkswagen CC looks amazing in person. Not as distinctive in pictures but still, this is how “4door coupes” should look imo.
It was friggin sweet. I was never huge on the twins but I could totally live with an exhaust note like that. Not nearly as aggressive as this but you get the idea:
Last day in the dinghy for the season, and a beautiful one. 63 and sunny on the Chesapeake in Virginia Beach. Looking back on the summer, I think I’ve confirmed that this is the most fun you can possibly have for $600. I think the dog agrees.
Edit: I’m not actually upset at my dad and I didn’t voice any of these opinions to him. I think it’ll be great for his purposes, I just think its ugly as hell. Lighten up everyone.
The later years of the last gen xc90 are cooler than the current gen. Here are a couple reasons why:
Finally found a fun boat racing game after playing random free roam games like GTA to get my boating fix. Its called aquadelic GT and its only $5 on steam. Not much about it is realistic but the idea is that you can roam freely around a bunch of different large maps that are littered with small missions, races, boat…
As the temps drop I find myself driving in 40 degree weather with my window down and heat blasting just so I can hear my exhaust instead of just the muffled vibrations through the sound deadening. One month after setting up my exhaust to perfection (for me) I have to start riding windows up so random pedestrians get…
I’ve come to the conclusion that the TL does not photograph well from the rear. I think it’s the combination of the small wheels and the large rear overhang that kinda makes it look blocky and weird.
I know we have a couple first gens and a raider, and at least two 3rd gens. Anybody drive the (imo) holy grail of US available monteros?
Seems like they’re coming down in price recently. Problem is finding one, but if I were in the market for something like this I would be willing to drive to get a clean one.
“Holistically, though, there’s no comparison. The Accord is more comfortable, spacious, and luxurious than the Camry. It’s quieter, rides and handles better, and drives more elegantly. It offers superior technology with a more user-friendly interface. Simply put, Toyota built a better Camry, but Honda built a better…
The perfect set of wheels and tires come up for sale locally. I am on 17's right now so upgrading wheels means a new set of 18" tires as well. At $650 for the wheels I want with a good set of tires on them already this is the perfect deal.
