There’s a big group down here in Atlanta that have turned theirs into overlanders (real ones that can go off-roading) and they almost all have high mileage!

That doesn’t work so well for classic or older cars where NADA may say it’s only worth $5k but the market is dictating $15k.  That’s what makes LightStream great.  As long as you have great credit you can get a great rate on what is essentially an unsecured personal loan.

I’m really tempted login to my PCA account and start chumming the waters for my 55k mile 987.2 Boxster. Based on asking prices I’d get a tidy little profit. Read more

I look forward to getting stuck behind one of these on a trail in Colorado. A lifted Subaru trying to do a 4x4 trail will almost never move over for faster vehicles. Otherwise, it’s kind of neat. There’s lots of lifted Crosstreks in Denver, too. Read more

Until they bring back the old 1980's 4WD system complete with a real transfer case, shift lever, and low range, this will NEVER complete with any proper 4WD vehicle on anything more than the lightest end of a moderate trail.  Once you need to crawl, this will promptly overheat its CVT and refuse to move forward.  Read more

Ummm...Jeep makes other vehicles that offer car-like ride and luxury in a light off-road-capable vehicle. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, for example, has more ground clearance, better breakover angle, and still offers a nice ride...

Interesting. To be fair, wanting something that oddball specific (I can’t imagine there are many Trailhawk V6's out there, let alone one not in grayscale) means they were falling all over them selves to move the one that *almost* matched what you wanted, hence the locker install comment. You were probably never going Read more

Had to drive through Austin a few months ago (well, last year) and it was... eye popping at how big it has become. Read more

The only time regular old white dude me felt uncomfortable stopping anywhere in the U.S. was years ago in south Louisiana. Pulled in to a small town gas station off a little state highway to fill up and there was the most beautiful girl behind the counter. A real Cajun-French goddess. Then I noticed the several good Read more

“but this isn’t a negotiation, is it? Chief Hoskin has definitively stated that naming a car and profiting greatly off of that nameplate is not honoring the Cherokee Nation. Read more

Fellow F31 owner here and I agree.   Thought hard about an All Road as they look better but the rear biased BMW AWD is more dynamic.

Never new about that split-open rear hatch. That’s really the only reason I read these NpNd articles is to learn interesting things about otherwise obscure cars (like wikipedia, but less rabbit-hole-esque). Read more

Look, I like wagons. I have actually purchased a new 6MT, turbo, AWD wagon. My brother has an F30 BMW 3 series wagon that replaced his previous wagon. The fact that wagons basically don’t exist in the market anymore is all the proof you need that they weren’t selling in the US when they were still available.

Get a Cayenne- 1st gen can be had (a decent one with V6) for $12,000. These are reliable, if maintained- good off road, great on. Everyone at the gym will think you hit the powerball.

Before VW started using 8 speed autos, they did have 2.7:1 low gear transfer cases. Though I’m not as familiar with the Amarok, I do know that here in the U.S., when the Touareg went to an 8 speed, they stopped offering the low gear transfer case, likely because they put an extra short 1st gear on the 8 speeds that Read more

Exactly the opposite. When I was in my 20's I realized how awesome it would be to sell Mary Kay. Think about it, your job is to go to parties where you’re the ONLY guy, be charming, and tell women how beautiful they are. And if it works out, free pink Cadillac. Read more
