Those horologists sure have a time for themselves in their debates.  I never understood how the Movado “museum watch” without even any hash marks was at all useful in telling time. All you could really confidently call out was noon or midnight, maybe 6, 3 and 9.  Anything in between was a pure guess.

The 1970 is much worse looking than the 1971-73s; it was especially bad since the 1969 was great looking, and they messed it up, front and rear. The Boss and Mach 1 models can distract you from the grille and tail with their stripes, scoops and slats, but in fact the ones from this year are without doubt the least

C’mon, we should save “hideous” for things like the Youabian Puma, the Spohn convertible, the 1962 Dodge Polara and the Bangle-butted BMWs. This is only a few lines away from greatness (see, the Viper-based Alfa 8C). Plus it’s a manual.

For a long time, if the object is connected to a person. Imagine you’re placidly sitting there and a UFC champion smacks the chair your head is against with all his might. This is different only in degree.

The reason I asked is I know someone who’s had an Unlimited since shortly after they came out, and she heard a lot of “not a real Jeep” comments from 2-door owners. Then again I imagine there are those who think it’s only a real Jeep if it’s done the actual Rubicon trail or King of the Hammers.

When you ask, does anyone have a realistic way to save the Jimny? Crickets.

Well our poors do become 24% less so when they exchange their Benjamins for Bordens. If they have any Benjamins, of course. And they can buy the forbidden fruit Euro cars we can’t get down here off of your hands

I did a search for Hyundai concept cars looking to prove you wrong, but I found this proto-Youabian Puma concept that sort of proves your point.

That reminds me of a friend who had a Saab, like a 9-3, circa 1995. Even with her boyfriend / future husband being a mechanic, it was too expensive to run with all of the stuff failing on it all the time, she had to sell it. Which further reminds me that I have not seen a Saab in—a really long time. And I live in the Read more

I always wondered how those worked, thanks Torch. I will grant you the dated gender view of the ad, but the VW ads from back then look good today; check out that font. Also the video ad features Goober Pyle (Gomer’s cousin) the gas jockey from Mayberry. He would not know what to make of the SportShift, for sure. Read more
