Its really surprising how dogfighting fighterjets traveling at the speed of sound is more entertaining than cars used as advertisements driven in a circle.
Days of Thunder fucking rules.
May or may bnot have indulged in some underage drinking with some firends in high school. We were at one buddys house whose parents were out of tow. We decided to make his ‘78 2 door Caprice classic the “Mello Yello” car. It ended up looking awful once we sobered up, but at the time we really thought we had it spiffed…
If I want to watch Tom Cruise make himself the center of attention in a super-macho, highly competitive vehicle-related environment with cringeworthy lovemaking scenes and cheesy dialogue, I’ll just watch Top Gun, thank you very much.

I drove the 2017 Cadillac ATS-V so long ago I had to check and make sure the car’s still in production. The six-speed manual, six-cylinder twin-turbo, two-door, rear-drive car has been lauded so much on Jalopnik already I almost didn’t bother writing about it. But! It’s been stewing in my mind since and I can finally…
Great post, great points.
You act like muscle cars shouldn’t share an engine with the postal trucks...
Why has no one swapped the current turbo 4 into one of these third gens? it’d be a hell of a sleeper and a terror on an autocross course with the right suspension.
Oh dang, I thought I snagged some decent ones (below) but after seeing the above pics, I gotta step up my game
