I, on the other hand, want to make the bears work for their late night meals and hence appreciate the loft-like sleeping perch/buffet table.

The Pantera does not need power steering or electronic nannies. It’s damn-near perfect the way it is. Well... I guess it could stand a better A/C system.

I am intrigued by your thinking and would like to subscribe to your pamphlet or TouTube channel.

My thought was that this would make for a pretty decent pit car, parade entrant, or... damn, that’s all I got.

I was given a subscription to AutoWeek by my sister as a present for my eleventh birthday. Back then it was tabloid format and had AutoWeek on one side and Competition Press facing the other way on the other. That way you could read either as though it was its own thing.

Some of them are very intrusive, like on the Focus and Fiesta. Others have them hidden as a flush back-lit touchpad in the door pillar, and those are extremely lit.

This was 100 horses greater than the 302 at its weakest. No, by today’s standards it’s still not a laudable outout, but that just makes today’s engines all the more amazing when you think about it.

I would totally rock one of those crazy BMW/Bertone C1 scooters!

This bike’s problem was that it was neither fish nor fowl. Too small and underpowered to be a fully satisfying tourer, and too heavy and ‘clothed’ to be a street fighter, it walked an uncomfortable in-between. I think it’s still a pretty cool standard, although I wouldn’t look forward to wrenching on it.

Good call, however that S2000's 240 ponies present in a very different way from how this supercharged Miata likely will. If you like playing up in the rev band and don’t mind a bit of a lackadaisical nature off the line then that’s a good option.

Imagine my frustration in attempting to select a reasonably pleasing shot for the post lede from all those turkeys.

A fun bit of trivia on these cars: the e-brake is placed between the seat and the outer door sill. There’s a mirrored indent on both left and right door sills for this feature on both LHD and RHD cars.

So what you’re saying is that people would stop looking askance at my popping of Cialis in public if I was driving this fine beast?

How about a pair of clunky white New Balance Dad shoes paired with a Canadian Tuxedo?

Funny thing—I was at a media event on Tuesday where I got to drive around 20 cars. Of those, only two (Mazda 3 and Miata) were stick.

I told my wife that I’m happy this car is not convenient to us because if it were I would seriously consider its purchase. Read more
