In typical French fashion, even though it won't start, it still looks good.

Apparently, a lot of work needed to be done to the platform to make it comply with US regulations. (Think of all the changes GM had to make to the VZ Holden Monaro to turn it into the GTO.) Add in CAFE and the not-engineered-here syndrome, and it was all too much. Sad really.

I wonder the V8 Supercars or the rights holders will come up with an overseas internet access package. Something tells me, probably not.

I'd say 90+% of TVs for sale in Australia are 720p or greater too, but free-to-air TV is primarily SD. There are HD channels, but they primarily show repeat programming.

Hahaha, my wife would probably say the same thing too.

How much would you be prepared to pay? And would that price include access to other sports on Fox?

In Australia it most surely does. In fact, unless you're paying for TV, most of the quality and high rating shows are shown exclusively in SD.

Unfortunately not. The Meriva is based on the Opel Corsa, which shares its bits with the Fiat Punto, Alfa Romeo MiTo and (drum roll please!) the ugly as sin Fiat 500L. The Sonic uses a platform developed by Daewoo/Chevy.

Unfortunately not. The Meriva's around the same size as the Chevy Sonic, but that car rides on a platform developed for Chevy/Daewoo. The Mervia is based on the Opel Corsa, that shares its bits with the Opel Combo, Fiat Punto, Alfa Romeo MiTo and (drum roll) the Fiat 500L.

Yeah it was a tough call as to whether RR Phantom/Drophead Coupe/Drophead Conv and RR Ghost/Wraith were two cars or 5. We sided with 5 because, well, suicide doors on coupes/convertibles.

Good call! I'll add that into the list in a moment.

Out of production, alas. Guess I should start working on a massive list of all the suicide-door cars ever list.

Big elevation changes are wonderful on race tracks. Wish there were more tracks like Bathurst and Monaco ;-)

As part compensation there's usually a sausage sizzle at the polling place held by a local organisation or school.
