Yeah for all of the talk/praise of Hyundai/Kia’s interior quality, I’ve found them to be a let-down. Other than the second-gen Genesis (I dunno what it’s called now).
Does it feel any different to a regular, top-spec TLX?
Man, am I glad this thread came up to give me a space to vent.
That new Bugatti Centodieci. It’s supposed to be an homage to the EB110, but to me it just shits all over it. It’s a cynical marketing exercise to make a shit-ton of money ($8million per car worth) off of the legacy of what was one of the greatest cars of… Read more
The standard against which all automotive journalism should be measured against...2005 Jalopnik.
The sheer number of typos in my post is actually bothering me...
I find cars like this fascinating. Two other cars come to mind:
1) Mazda MX-5 25th Anniversary - It wasn’t mechanically different to any MX-5, but the QC process was stricter, and the tolerances for parts was much lower. They only chose the best of the best of the best to go into each of these cars, and as a result… Read more

My Honda del Sol with the TransTop had that feature. It was rad (as was the whole car). Shame I could never keep the top working.
Are we really not going to talk about the Nissan Hardbody?
My favorite car ever, as good as it is, would undoubtedly be better with RWD. The Fiat barchetta.

He told his employees during his first address that he drove one because he believed it was the best-built car in the world, and that Ford should be building cars like this. He then encouraged all of his senior execs to go out and get cars… Read more
My father-in-law had a first-gen Festiva (he had a Kia Pride, but same difference). It was panned by the press when new, but when I drove it five years ago, it was actually...fun. Was it the lack of assists/tech that made it feel so engaging?
