Absolutely agree. I am firmly convinced that the lowrider culture’s widespread use and innovation of air and hydraulic suspension in the late 50's/early 60s paved the way for adoption of airride technologies prevalent in countless resto mods today.

Volvo actually may be a good choice, but a larger model - specifically the S90 for the space, luxury and refinement. A 2018 T5 S90 could be had for a bit more than 20K, but still within a workable budget in the 20K mark.

There are many wild animals inside of me at any given time, inside us all, and they are fighting for survival. The hope is that some can be domesticated, and others can be vanquished, until the raging battle has resolved. But never has the battle raged more fiercely than this year. Anxieties, rage, love, hope, fear, Read more

I see it all about adoption and honestly think the Hummer is the best option to electrify. What was once the symbol of opulence and excess in the pre-recession era comes back, atones for its sins to brings EV pickup truck coolness to the masses. Hell, convert even a fraction of the coal-rolling truck bros and that is Read more

I know I am in the minority apparently, but I think the final design is the best option. They ditched the acres of mesh grill from the current Silverado and kept the front fascia pretty clean- a la the new Bronco - and threw in a cool homage to the Avalanche for the rear. Read more

Upstate and Western NY really pulls up the average for New York State. Grew up in the Albany area, lived in NYC for 20 years, now relocated to Western NY. Drivers north of Westchester County are very proficient. They know the rules of the road, give you a wide berth when cycling or running on the shoulder and are Read more

I get the desire for a 4-Runner, but as someone also living in Western NY that frequently travels to the Adirondacks, there are very few trails that can’t be accessed by a Crosstrek with Blizzaks.  Hell, I can get to just about everywhere with my ‘14 Explorer XLT with all-seasons.

Mentioned in the comments but bears repeating/shouting: Please give Braunability / Ramp equipped vans space when you park to allow for proper ramp clearance AND safe entry for the person on the ramp.

Wow, that is the truth.  Nearly 10 years ago, I bought my ‘55 Chevy at 29 years old.  Took it to a few shows to meet people, get ideas for projects and the like and I was the youngest guy there by easily 30 years.
