Carnival isn’t a new name...it’s the same name that the Sedona has had in most other global non-North American markets for years. If anything they aren’t re-naming it they’re just consolidating their naming scheme on the next iteration of the van.

Same thing with the Kia Optima...it’s called the K5 now, but that’s not Read more

You’d be surprised....they share a lot of parts with the classic FIAT 500 on which they were based, and a lot of classic 500 owners upgrade their cars with more modern 126p parts. There are several shops in the US that carry parts online (Mr. FIAT, for example) and most stuff is easily available online in general.

A HUGE and SINCERE thanks Jalops! We really appreciate your kind words and everything you’ve done for us over the years and all you’ve done to help save us in the last week...it’s been a whirlwind.

Oppo was my ‘home’ online...I check it many times a day, not just for the car content, but also for the camaraderie and Read more

Nope, getting one anyway, haha! The article I linked is written by a good friend, it’s his car. If you use it as a ‘weekend’ ride and take care of it, they’re no more unreliable than any other ‘classic’. There’s very little to go wrong, and, if it does, parts are cheap and easily available online. Everything Read more

YAY! My favorite car! The BIS didn’t just lay the engine on it’s side, it was also water-cooled! The car in the video is either an early 126p FL or a later FL with 126p ST parts (like the chrome bumpers) added onto it.

During the transition from the 126p ST (the first-gen built in Poland) to the FL, a lot of earlier FL Read more

The mechanical connection is what I miss most. I’m of the opinion that automated everything is making a lot of people worse drivers. We don’t truly have to DRIVE anymore as things like radar cruise and auto-emergency-braking make us too comfortable and less aware.

But, aside from all that...I drive an Accent, so far Read more

Amen!!! I still just want an EV with a similar range to my current ICE car (600km)...but in an ecobox. I don’t care about luxury fancy features and whether the interior is plastic-y or not, as long as it’s a fairly nice and comfortable place to be and has normal basic stuff, that’s all I care about!

Very cool and super impressive - kudos to them for not completely just jumping on the Crossover/SUV bandwagon and actually producing a sedan....but it’s just ‘Yet Another Luxury EV’ that the average person can’t afford.

If they’d make an economy car with just as much (if not even slightly lower) range, but more basic Read more

Pardon? That’s a bit uncalled for...I wasn’t being rude to you in any way, so there’s no reason to be snide. :/

I understood that your comment was a joke, but on the serious side not everybody knows that the Trabant didn’t have a full Duroplast body, so I was simply replying to your comment explaining that they did, Read more
