People remember the name Donald Turnipseed all these years later...

I think some day my old 1989 Laredo is going to confuse the heck out of some XJ nut with it’s 2001 badging (my choice after a paint job) and 1996 dash (replaced after a radio theft)...

GM is gradually shutting down a lot of their global operations so I’m sure it’s easy to forget. Just in the last couple of years they have pulled out of Europe, Russia and Australia so it’s pretty much just North America and China these days with a few additional struggling operations elsewhere.

This is true, I put a tiny amount of money into Apple Computer in 1999 (basically the amount a 20-something guy with an entry-level tech job could afford) and it’s no longer a tiny amount. I wish I could have instead invested a small or medium amount, I’d be retired and living in Saint-Tropez then instead of still Read more

If low-volume cars count I think the 1971 Stutz Blackhawk is the winner. Oddly the later Blackhawks have red turn signal lenses, only the 1971 had yellow.

The 1971 Stutz Blackhawk had amber turn signals but that is a pretty low-production automobile as well.

For those that might seriously consider this truck remember that CDN $30000 is only USD $21,320.70 at the current exchange rate.

One would assume there are a few in charter service, mothballs or the boneyard capable of being returned to mainline service.

Fords been awful quiet about the death of the Fiesta since they cancelled the Focus Active and I have to wonder if they are planning to give it a reprieve for a year or two lest they have no entry at all at the bottom end of the market. It also wouldn’t surprise me for Mazda to bring back the Mazda2 if Ford does kill Read more

Do I get the Jeep trademark? Just the licensing fees from that alone should give me enough money to bring the plants into the 21st century. Read more

Maybe but with the ST running in the lowest class there’s no place for it to be competitive.

No, that money all goes to the dealer, not to the government. It’s just a way of advertising a lower than real price.

I kind of wonder if Ford is penciling in what it will cost them to keep the Fiesta ST but drop the rest of the Fiesta line come 2020? Ford isn’t going to stop making Fiestas in Mexico for South America so the incremental cost of keeping the old one around in the US market isn’t that big. With Focus production going to Read more

The ‘18 ST had a backup camera I believe. The ‘19 will certainly have it.

I have almost 100,000 miles on my ‘14 ST and except for a cut in the overflow hose haven’t had any engine issues and I autocross the car and drive it to work in stop-and-go traffic so it’s garage queen.

When I saw the headline I imagined the slowest form of motorsports possible, a series consisting of nothing but automatic late-80s Nissan Micras :-).

My dad bought this 1931 Packard before I was born in 1958 and kept it until I was in my 20s. It wasn’t just any Packard either, the previous owner had lengthened the hood 4" so he could drop in a 1933 Duesenberg Model J straight-8. Double overhead cams, 32 valves, 420 cubic inches and 265 horsepower (and not much of a

Way cool. When I was in college my dad had a ‘55 Studebaker President hardtop which is essentially the same car as a 2-door hardtop with a big chrome grill. I even had it at college for a few weeks when my car was in the shop. I wonder if this one still has the original Studebaker engine?
