While I think this is one of Torch’s dumbest ideas ever, even the regular Spitfire hardtop is easier to get in and out of than the soft top when it is up. The soft top mechnism is a good 3" lower than the top of the side windows when the top is up - I can’t get in and out of mine with the top up anymore. It is a…
Yeah, I suppose it’s tendency to “swap ends suddenly” makes it a rear-engine, I mean front engine, I mean rear engine.... Look Out!
It does... You just couldn’t see the results through the clouds of smoke.
Why, it probably does much better than an actual Hellcat.
That was it's downfall of course. It had to come at too high a price for enough people to buy one. Cost VAG more than €1bn.
Nah, it’s cool looking. I like it, so it’s polarizing. Always amazed by what American consumers consider ugly.
When the original Fast and Furious was brought back and shown at Arclight theaters in LA a couple years ago, the screening I was at had a faulty sound system. So for the first fifteen minutes of the movie, theatergoers brought up the script on their phones, assigned roles, and did all the sound effects. My favorite…
It’s also a really great illustration of why I don’t like working on automatic transmissions. There’s nothing particularly difficult about it, and doing it right is just about being detail oriented (which I very much am.)
This is true, because the maximum legal speed is lowered for vehicles towing something. Doesn’t matter if you have a Yaris or some kind of American bro truck.
A great, smart, strong leader.
A 1.9 TZI. Only 109 HP, but quicker than any car with double the power I driven since then. Buzzy, yet quite comfortable.
You guys are all missing something much, MUCH more obvious that either didn’t get captured well in the photo or was mostly cropped out for this presentation. Look at what the Santa Fe is carrying in that photo on the roof.
They were well built, engaging to drive, practical, and they looked like nothing else on the road. What’s not to get?
Wow, didn’t expect to see a Panhard PL17 wagon here. This is my dad’s, brought over from Belgium a few years ago. It’s nestled between a Dyna X familiale and a Dyna Z in southeast Michigan.
I have been told that all this is walking across the border and thus we need that wall. Have i been lied to this entire time? Say it aint so.
The high speed network is a bit hit and miss. Some trips, with good connections are more viable than aircraft, especially if you are travelling form medium sized city to medium sized city. Connections through Paris, Brussels, London, Amsterdam, Cologne to the surrounding regions are excellent, but once you head out of…
Yes, but it’s the year before pre-Engelized Imperial. And the “early ‘60s Ford Falcon” at the carnival is a 1964 Ford Fairlane.
I was thinking 62 or 63.
I don’t think your take is the point of the tax. Not all taxes are designed to discourage use. They have to be exorbitantly high to have that effect. The point is to fund other transportation initiatives. Giving people more options over flying. No one is going to not fly because of a $20 tax on a seat but they might…
