If this happened in any country/state with laws modeled on those of the UK, the kid in this case is the rightful owner of the vehicle, regardless of the dealer’s shenanigans. He’d be whats know as “equity’s darling” - a Bonafide Purchaser for Value Without Notice. Any court in a common-law, UK derived jurisdiction… Read more
There’s a guy here in NZ who owns a classic car museum in Hamilton that has been building an Atlantic replica/recreation following original plans on a 1937 Type 57 Ventoux chassis. Their website (and the hoardings still up when I last visited the museum 6 months ago) said we were to expect the “Atlantic” to be… Read more
They’ve emerged in NZ too. I managed to capture this one.
As an Alfa Romeo owner, I feel personally targeted by this content.
Came for the explanation, starred for the Snow Crash reference.
The world’s best sandwich shop, All’Antico Vinaio in Florence (not hyperbole, look it up. My wife added Florence to our last Europe trip itinerary just so she could share this place with me), has a sign on the wall, in English, that simply says “pesto is not a sandwich filling”.
Reminds me of the Maybach Exelero, another one-off pre-GFC car nerd thirst trap. Love it, but mostly because it reminded me of the Anton Furst Batmobile (that’s the Keaton/Burton one, for all the normal people who don’t obsess over Batmobiles).
Always “Concorde”. Not “a Concorde”, or “the Concorde”. Just “Concorde”.
Not sure about power off the top of my head, but yeah, it was just for us and our odd tax system that meant 2 litre and below got some sort of credit or lower rego costs or something. For that reason we were the only country outside of Italy that you could get a Ferrari 208 (a 308 with some sort of lawnmower engine… Read more
I’m a Kiwi, and we have been getting ex JDM cars here since the early 90s. My former step-dad imported them when I was a kid in the mid 90s (still does), so we got all sorts of weird JDM stuff (for example my mother was daily driving an S-cargo for a couple of weeks, during which time we also had both a Nissan Gloria… Read more
As the owner of a red BMW (E30) and a wagon (Accord Euro CU2), I fully approve of your car choice. #wagonlyfe
Yup, beat you to it by roughly 5 years. Kinja game is on point!
Sysadmin here. I suspect they mean most of the servers were running Windows 2000. This would also explain how they were able to compromise them so easily.
In New Zealand we call them Jandals. And because we are bound by tradition to always argue with Australians, they are blue and gray.
Hate to break it to you, but that’s not an American car.
My mate nearly got away with naming his daughter Savanna, until his dad gave the game away: “What, like an RX-3?”. Also rejected were Efini, Silvia and Laurel. Good thing too, she really suits “Cosmo”.
Ka mau te wehi!
