My elderly boss in Florida was trying to explain to me the new kind of car that her son had recently purchased, but it was a car she had never heard of before.
The Toyota Venza is seriously one of the strangest cars for sale today. It isn't really a traditional station wagon in the truest sense, nor is it a pseudo-wannabe SUV like its Highlander cousin, which it shares a platform and drivetrain.
Yeah, the really expensive kind for your teeth, so I whipped this up instead.
By all accounts, they were pretty good trucks too. Rugged ladder frame and suspension components made for a competent off-roader, but they were never given much consideration seeing how popular Toyota trucks were in the US, and elsewhere in the world.
I know that's kind of a vague question, but I'm thinking about a Forester XT with the new high torque CVT as a shared vehicle in the near future. Subaru has a pretty decent track record of making reasonably durable 4EATs and 5EATs that can last 200k miles if they're taken care of. I know I've driven Subaru 4EATs well…
Looks like the front end of an old 3-wheler, which were outlawed in the US. I know there were kits to convert them into a quad, but not a motorcycle, or was there?
Nothing a little redneck engineering can't fix
Hopefully this embeds because, well Kinja.
I always take a bit of time out of my day to browse Auto Extremist on Wednesday morning. I like his insight into the auto industry, the endless praise of GM, the endless vitriol he spews towards Sergio Marchionne, and to a greater extent, Chrysler as a whole... even though he used to work for them.
I'm sure you've seen this before, bit I can't stop laughing at it.
I thought this post on /r/subaru over at Reddit deserved a mention, because it was written extremely well. Made me happy and sad at the same time.
Quad rear mirrors help with those pesky blind spots. I think it's a great collaboration between Fiat and Chrysler.
I spent a few years being a service adviser, trying to convince people that driving on tires like the one pictured is really dangerous.
It's pretty funny and informative. EDIT: and on the front page apparently.
Envisioned exactly the way "Maximum" Bob "I can't see shit" Lutz envisioned it.
Only available in FWD, but it has that Honda build quality that you know you can depend on.
It looks like it some assembly and or butchering is required.
Sure Autoblog has become sort of a press release site the last few years, but they still have some good material once in a while. Looks like John Neff is leaving after 10 years of being the editor. In internet years, that's like 3,000 years.
