Mercedes Benz W126 S-Class
It might not be the fanciest, nor the fastest, or most expensive, but growing up in the UK - this generation of Golf GTI seemed to have a great reputation for just being a great all-round car.
I feel like Porsche really came into it’s own in the 1980s as a legitimate super-car fighter and high performance car manufacturer. Even though it was introduced in the late 70s, the Porsche whale-tale 930 is basically synonymous with the 80s in my mind. Particularly in white, or red.
And that’s the only excuse I need to repost this
If I had a million dollars I would NOT buy a K-car. ;-)
Thanks for the reminder. Not sure how this really “worked” in those days, but my Dad left his Mercedes (new) at the dealership. And came home in a new 916/6. For a week...I worked on him hard everyday for that Porsche to stay. That was the first time I remember Mom wanting a divorce over his crazy car addiction. Now… Read more
My dad and mom divorced when I was young. My dad’s first car purchase post-divorce as a Zambezi Green 914 1.8. I loved that car. He taught agriculture at a local high school. Right about when I hit kindergarten he traded it for a pick-up and a boat to open a water ski school while still teaching high school.
It’s just simply not worth it. We see how it ended in this instance, and we’ve now seen multiple instances of people pulling guns. It’s just not worth it. It’s to the point where if I see two people aggressively driving and clearly antagonizing one another, I get as far away as I can for fear of gunfire erupting.
I don't think people are comparing. Raptor? Asshole. Honda? Asshole. Guy cheering for someone getting hurt? Asshole.
Agreed. Shame on the drivers of the Accord, Ford, and the guy videoing and commentating. Nothing in that video should be celebrated.
if people are cheering when you wreck a car you are either in stock car racing or have been a huge douche nozzle in traffic.
Same here, a Ferrari 308 GTS wouldn’t be a bad choice either.
In production or debuted?
This was tough. 1958 ... I knew it wouldn’t be an American car, but I didn’t know offhand of an import that I would want.
“But German automakers specifically tend to use more complicated processes”. Yes, 100% true and not just in their automobiles either. I’ve worked on German built aircraft and everything from how the pilots seat arm rest operates to any number of components their needlessly complicated. Read more
You get more, more expensive to repair. How can that be rocket science to some people?
Porsche performance and handling in a sub $20k Ford?
Luxury like an S-class in an Affordable Buick?
Freude am Fahren in a common Hyundai?
It’s like complaining a high-end Intel Xeon is more expensive than an entry level AMD Ryzen CPU.
The '55 Le Mans race looked like it would be one of the greatest since WWII. One British race report praised the variety of the field representing "a United Nations of motor racing." The greatest carmakers in the world were competing, as were the best drivers. Future British F1 champion Mike Hawthorn drove for Jaguar… Read more
