Driving this for autocross would seem to set a person up to be in front of the Camaro drivers in rushing to the event chair to complain about tight turn elements.
Hey, he didn’t manage to own the expensive house and car by just ignoring ways to save money . . . wait . . .
I feel like that is missing a door . . . just one more, and it would be perfect.
Awww, poor baby. Glad that she is coping well.
How is she doing 24 hours later?
Dang. Just . . . wow.
I don’t blame anyone who owned a 2000-2010 VW for never wanting to go back, as it seemed like there were regular, significant quality issues. I’m not sure that this has been resolved, and like ADabOfOppo, I bought my 2016 GTI skeptical about reliability. Despite having no issues at 40k, that skepticism hasn’t departed.
My chihuahuas once or twice tore the webbing between toes doing energetic things, and that made me nervous. Current doggo (terrier mix) has two extra toes per rear paw, and they seem very tenuously attached, but 3 years in with lots of stupid activity and no problems, I’m no longer nervous about that.
I am shocked that there wasn’t a comment already referencing the Dajiban racing scene. Clearly hot vans are already a thing, but could be more of a thing, particularly in the U.S.
More power to you if you can find an employer not making you sign such a thing. It is very common in my experience here in the US. I dislike it given the known outcomes of arbitration unevenly favoring employers. But that is why they require it, when they have the power to demand it.
This summarizes what I would say based on my regal mutt.
I still can’t think of a better car for me. Happily my GTI is doing fine at 40k miles.
This is not good - if the Charlotte dealers were magically able to make everything better that would be ideal.
5 seat “SUV” with more width. That is a solid market segment between the Equinox and the Traverse. I never would need 3 rows, and would like to (theoretically) save on fuel from the Traverse, but might like the luxury of a bit more width in the hip and shoulder, and possibly more towing/payload capacity?
A lot of people that I know like Oak Island in NC, and I think that you can drive on the beach there. Haven’t made it there myself. I like going to Charleston/Mount Pleasant/Sullivan’s Island for the beach experience myself.
There is a guy on GRM developing a Cheetah-like kit car, check it out:
So what will you use as wheels for your autocross tires?
Glad to see that your dad has fully embraced his transition from Mustang guy to Jeep guy.
