If all of that had been true, the death of this judge had only been about her life. Her achievements. Although this has been a topic, the main subject is that one of the two parties gets to appoint the judge. A judge who will have a lasting effect on the political bias of the court. Read more

Exactly! That's what this site is about. Or used to be.

What I don't understand is the contrast between this article and the reviews about generic crossovers.

The whole idea of 87 year old judges and *politicized* judge appointments (by 1 party!) that can shape the future of a country for decades to come kind of do make you a banana republic. This is a system that should have been left behind in the 19th century.

I chose the word republican as the opposite of monarchist. An analogy in the political context. Yet, in this current political climate republican and monarchist are starting to mean something similar. Like the circle you mentioned. Read more

Sure. As single cab van, double cab van, single cab pickup, double cab pickup, box van,... The vans with different lengths and heights, different bed lenghts as well f I’m not mistaken, optional air suspension. All of it still with a ladder frame.

This will not be physically smaller than an F150 though. It’s just that we don’t really do dedicated pickup platforms here. They don’t need to fulfil ‘lifestyle’ functions either, they are work vehicles first and foremost.

In Europe you have vans that can tow way more than 10,000 lbs. I was browsing some old vans, and this dually for example is rated for 6500 kg (14,000+ lbs), depending on the trailer brakes. It’s an Iveco Daily, which still uses a ladder frame.

For the 3% of time you haul manure, you simply put it in a trailer which you can tow with a van.

In Europe pickup trucks are frequently based on vans, like this VW Transporter. When they are, they look like this. Either single or double cab. I guess it makes sense for a work vehicle.

I think it’s odd that people who are not really that tall think they won’t fit in smaller cars. This might be true for some Japanese cars from the 80s and before, but especially for cars sold in Western Europe it is simply not acceptable if someone 6'3" cannot fit normally, as 6'3" is not exceptionally tall there.

6'? I’ve seen people much taller, myself included, fit nicely in a mk3 MR2.

My 2000 Peugeot has short gearing as well, and I live in Germany. On the Autobahn I never get under 4000 rpm, unless there is construction. I’ve owned the car for 8 years, mostly use if for long distance trips, it’s 20 years old, has 375k kms (233k miles) and is still super reliable and cheap to own. Read more

It depends. As long as you wait until COVID19 dies down, you’re respectful and don’t wear a red cap, people won’t hold that shitshow against you personally. They might laugh behind your back though. Read more

I’ve shipped from Europe to the US once. The European part is relatively easy and fun; find a car (preferably with a recent valid inspection), buy it, register it with temp plates (easy in many countries like Germany), maybe make some repairs, take a nice long roadtrip and leave it at a RoRo port.

What kind of help do you need then? Try the oppositelock forum, that sort of belongs to Jalopnik. There are a few Europeans there that might be able to help. Read more
