One bullet point they failed to mention was overheating. The C4 Corvette was the undisputed champion.

I don’t know if you’ve checked recently, but you can’t buy 4 xj’s for this price anymore. Maybe 2. And not David Tracy level XJ’s, decent XJ’s.

For that price, you could beat more shit out of a wrangler and have more fun doing it

As another commenter stated, that is a fuel injected - it’s TBI or Throttle Body Injection. It uses two large fuel injectors on top, similar in placement to where a standard carburetor would be. This is not a carburetor, it is fully electronic/computer controlled. Read more

If you can read the tiny, tiny print they cherry picked metrics and (exotic cars) in which in some cases the Corvette loses and one of the metrics is price. Also, some exotic cars like the Porsche 911 are not included.  It all marketing just like today.

Typical GM quality, they probably inserted one and it fell off on the way to the ad getting printed.

Yes! I saw that and was like “naw, that’s got to be an engine swap with a crate motor”. I was under the belief that everything after like 1985 had fuel injection. Read more

The price is unrealistically high but I like the truck overall. That V8 isn’t even warming up at 200hp output, and likewise the short, stubby chassis and transmission aren’t heavily loaded. In terms of potential durability, this rig has it in spades. Take a little care of it and it’ll be there for you day after day, Read more

Is anyone else besides me surprised that in 1995 GM was still putting carbs on engines? I thought fuel injection was fairly standard by this point. I know the 92 Escort I had was fuel injected, if that turd had it why wouldn’t this one? Oh, and huge gold CP.

You can buy a decade-newer Escalade for half the price. This is a horrible deal, unless you just sit around all day thinking “man I really want a 2-door Yukon,” and if you do then you may need to broaden your horizons a little.

I have to laugh at bull bars and winches on trucks that never leave the blacktop. The front of this beast it perfect for clearing Walmart shoppers from the parking lot while you try to find a huge parking space.  So what if it’s a 2-door.  $8,750 for this dinosaur is too much.  CP all the way to J.C. Whitney, where Read more

Why would you buy one of those when you can buy 4 XJs for the same price?

LOL! Almost 9 Grand for a 25 YO Yukon that isn’t anything special! I want some of whatever he’s smoking! Read more

Modern homes and the things in them are pretty fire retardant, to the point where fire departments don’t go out to house fires much any more. A battery fire is hot enough that it would catch something on fire, but it’s not like your house is going to go up like kindling.

And the 10, 20, 30+ gallons of gasoline in your current cars don’t? Or the natural gas system? Or any of the existing electrical system in your house?

Fires are one thing that worry me about EVs. Having one charging in my garage makes me nervous, even if I know it’s slightly irrational. If it were to catch fire, my whole McMansion would be toast in like 5 minutes. It’s basically made out of graham crackers and elmer’s glue.
