In light of the 800+ comments on the FP post about Boomers complaining about the C8 Corvette not being able to carry their precious golf bags because it’s mid-engined, I have news for you, boomers: some mid-engined cars have trunks.
Some car dealers around me are way too overzealous about tacking unnecessary shit onto cars. Criswell Auto however, decided that SUV tailgates present an excellent branding opportunity. Fuck this shit.
Ok, I get it, sometimes you can’t help but park under a tree. But at some point you have to say enough’s enough and wash your car. Even if it’s a Mercury Mariner.
Remember the other day when my review of the Honda Civic Si turned into a Suze Orman episode about my financial planning abilities or the lack thereof? Well, I did some investigating and I might have to tweak my plans some.
My wife and I are talking about saving up to buy a house here in the not-cheap DC burbs within the next year or two. We’re trying to find ways to economize our budget. I should try to get something normal and practical but my mind doesn’t work that way. But maybe I’ve got something going here.
This car belongs, I think, to an employee of the McDonald’s a couple blocks away from my neighborhood. If not, it’s parked at that McDonald’s an awful lot. I never noticed until now, it has vanity tags that say XRCIZIN. Perfect. This is the second clean Merkur I’ve seen in my neck of the woods, amazingly enough.
I bent both my front summer wheels a while back in a construction zone where the road had been torn up and steel plates were littered everywhere. I had my wheels repaired at Eurobeatwheels (5 stars on Yelp, Google & Facebook) and I’m going to submit my sorta-pothole claim with the state of Maryland as this happened on…
My friend spotted none other than someone that looks a lot like Mr. Fake News Amazon Washington Post himself in this black & yellow McLaren Senna with temp tags this afternoon in Arlington, VA where Amazon HQ2 will be.
Haven’t seen one of these in a long long time. Back in the late 80s & early 90s when I was a kid and these were new, all us kids thought they were ancient. Everyone’s mom had a Taurus/Sable wagon, or minivan, or maybe a fwd Cutlass Cruiser.
I found myself with a little extra free time this weekend and decided to stop in to my local Genesis “dealer” (a.k.a. my local Hyundai dealer that added a new Genesis sign out front but no separate showroom, yet) to check out a G70 3.3T. It was pretty good!
Fair warning, shit gets unexpectedly real at the end of this. The part they tack on at the end with the lion is the GAHHH, just sayin.
I’ve been going down the V8 Miata rabbit hole lately, and specifically what I want is a white NC Club power hardtop with red decals, tacked-on fender flares, bronze wheels, and an LS3 swap with heads, cam, intake manifold, throttle, & headers. But this thing is insane yo.
This commercial is literally saying that if you use generic toilet paper instead of Charmin, you’re going to end up with shit on your hand.
I crossed paths with this Dodge Challenger the other day. It had assorted retro style details including some chrome trim on the bumper and wheels that are modern size but shaped like old muscle car steelies. With the retro styling, it kinda works?
The second-cheapest gas station in town recently switched over from Gulf to Marathon branding. I go there because the cheapest gas station in town, a Freestate a couple blocks down the street, is cash only. I don’t know if this graphic is part of the new branding, but it’s the first time I noticed it.
How anyone didn’t see through his disguises is beyond me!
My neighbor works for BMW in some kind of capacity where he gets company cars. He had been driving a 430i GC and now has a G20 330i, but sometimes he gets to bring home something more exotic, like an i8 Roadster, and now this here 8 series.
This weekend, I went to Chicago with my mom to celebrate my grandma’s 95th birthday. During this trip, my mom complained about some Lime scooters that had been parked in her neighborhood. Repeatedly.
Gather round younglings, and let’s set the wayback machine to a time at the turn of the century, when many, many carmakers decided that their cars needed to have large round fender flares.
