My confidence in bold claims is inversely proportional to the number of typos in the presentation.
“.... and if you’re going to get a Mini you might as well take advantage of the fact that it’s the only true hatchback “coupe” you can buy new right now.”
Definitely highlights liquidity and holding cost factors when it comes to determining value and return on investment.
I have long dealt with having to limit the size of my collections of various objects, so Ron’s story hits home with me. In so many ways I feel bad for him. It has to hurt to see these vehicles go away..
Try something else for what? How do Dem. presidential debates impact having a non-Dem. mayor in the city? Downtown is fantastic and they’re making great progress on getting abandoned blighted houses in residential areas removed to make way for new development. Slower than most would have liked, but things are movin’…
I for, for one, want to complain about Mark’s job performance. My toilet is reluctant to flush and thus I find he is not running North America properly. In a similar vein, I am highly disappointed with the options I have on the ballot and would ask if he can correct this as well.
More than half a century ago this week, the United States conducted its only farm-to-table nuclear missile test. The test, code-named “Frigate Bird,” involved the launch of a Polaris missile from a submarine carrying a live nuclear warhead. The missile traveled a thousand miles before streaking down on an uninhabited…
Apple Computer was an innovative and nimble company in 1987, so it makes sense that people at the tech giant would imagine a world dominated by Apple ten years into the future. And that’s precisely what it did when it released this goofy video from the perspective of the year 1997.
Marketers are amazing. Then again I’m stupid for underestimating the stupidity of the buying public. Marketers are geniuses because they don’t.
Indeed. The Ford Focus you buy today is basically the same car as a 2012 Ford Focus. Oy. Tesla it taking the opposite tactic. They are constantly making their cars better. Whether it’s incremental improvements in production, or via software for existing cars.
That is the truth. “Expensive”. Basically a station wagon that they can charge more for.
The GLA really solidified that for me. Saw one parked next to a current taurus, they were the same height. Think of it as a 300+ hp hot hatch from Mercedes and suddenly it seems a lot more appealing.
The new style of ‘lowered’ CUVs really are just tall hatchbacks. But their roofs are still too tall and the seating position is still too high to truly give you that hatchback feel.
it will devastate current and future public transit options and leave millions of people high and dry when they shutter up
Neutral: If they keep making more compact “SUVs” that they become hatchbacks, and suddenly we have a ton of hatch options in the US, bring it on.
5th gear - being rich /= being smart. Uber and Lyft are just pyramid schemes to prop up the initial series A money with suckers down the road and letting the founders and wahtnot cash out while screwing everyone else.
I will never, literally never, purchase a crossover or SUV. If that means I’m eventually babying along a 40 year old hatchback, so be it, but I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in that sort of car.
The Jason Group, an independent panel of academics who have advised the Pentagon for the past 59 years, will likely disband on April 30. The group had hoped to get a one-year extension to continue its work.
