So you might know about it, or might not, but we do have to post our Euro Oppo Rally findings and results, because the benevolent rulers of Euro Oppo Rally decided this is the best way to go about this. We had two type of tasks, let’s go type by type, and see what we came up during our drive through and around Vosges.
...does that make the hassle of just keeping it on the road with endless repairs worthwhile?
This one’s especially for ‘two wheels good’ people, but I bet even the die-hard car fanatics will appreciate this film.
Thankfully the one person involved (me) isn’t hurt. Neither is the car in too bad shape, if it was my steed, I would have most likely driven away. But anyhow. This is what snap oversteer looks like in a Miata ND (2.0 sport)
Today is World Car Free Day, so it’s fitting that I spent it driving two gas-guzzlers. And I’m not sure witch one I would rather buy with my own money, because these two are very evenly matched, all things considered. Let’s battle!
They weren’t lying.
Specifically the 1991 model, with the 305 TBI (L03) motor. This is the one:
Lotus Elan, Alfa Spider or Triumph TR6: whatever flavor of roadster you want, Miata is always the answer. And the ND with the smaller engine plays the game of oldschool spider almost to perfection. Almost.
It’ll be a nice, sedate family-hauler, and an elegant cruiser in one, they said. Oh yes.
Ever since Porsche launched the Boxster, people were awaiting the time it would surpass the lady of the house, the 911. Or at least the road testers were. It almost happened a few times, but not quite. Then last Wednesday I drove a few Porsches, so now it’s my turn to chime in on this.
Do you know these people? I have met them now, and came back with some interesting quotes.
...but will it be rubbish? We’ll find out soon enough, it seems. Top Gear just dropped their first teaser trailer.
Peugeot might not be back in the big luxo-barge business anytime soon, but all three of their plus-size offerings (604, 605 & 607) were interesting in one way or another. Ok, maybe not the 607. Anyhow, look what I made friends with today:
Hey man, I need some imput on the Dutch used car market, so i thought maybe I should ask someone in the know. Here’s a pic you, and everyone else might like, for your trouble.
You need a description with that?
I have two cars, both somewhat jalop. However, I now am certain that my garage is all fucked up, and I need to sell both, and get another pair. Here’s why.
Yeah I know I’m boring. But there are so many details!
Hello oppo. This is a long shot, because several things need to happen before I end up having to make this decision. However, there’s no harm in browsing the classifieds in advance, is there? So, Mazda RX-8: do, or don’t?
and y’all going to like it. Probably.
I just called to say: I love you. Love you all, I mean. Happy new year people!
