counterpoint - just restore the gas tank to 6.5 gallons like it used to be. that will also get you close to 300 miles on a tank for 7 lbs and no new expensive technology.  the GW is already absurdly expensive.  making it a hybrid would add a minimum of 3k to the price of entry.

additionally, highway cruising, the Gold Read more

while I love your stories, and am continually astonished by your fanatical dedication to some of the worst cars ever built, you are every homeowner’s nightmare neighbor.

amazed that your neighbors called the town rather than paying a visit with a gas can and a match.

you know who else supported the crime bill? 95 senators, basically all of them. it passed unopposed by voice vote in the dem controlled house and was signed by Clinton.  Simon and Fiengold (dems) and Durenburger and hatfield (gop) voted against it and Dorgan (D-ND) didn’t vote.

at the time apparently all of Washington Read more

and what would you suggest? voting for the guy who calls neo-nazis “very good people”, who on an hourly basis denigrates all people of color, all LGBTQI, all handicapped people, all foreigners, constantly uses his office to enrich himself and his family and friends, who has shown more compassion for a pair of Read more

I’m guessing this this is manual steering and drum brakes all around...

while it is a very nice car, that price is on the ludicrous side for a low option ‘66
look at the sale prices for these at Mecum and other auctions and you will be hard pressed to find one as low option as this, and similar ones with an aftermarket V8 dropped in tend to go for about $12K, and almost any buyer would do Read more

what is your alternative? there are 2 choices. one thinks he’s a stable genius and actively works to destroy democracy, the other guy has a long and imperfect political history but is not a hateful shitbag.

yeah, not so much. italy is and has always been an ethnic mixing pot between europe and north africa. finding an italian without at least one drop is about as likely a jesus being white. he was a palestinian semite. ethnically not significantly different than the palestinians today, other than the religion and Read more

sorry. AM/RB Valkyrie has more 160 more horsepower, weighs about the same, makes more downforce without the silly fan and looks a lot better.

while this is a pretty cool car, saying no other car matters is yet another bad and dumb BB take. Read more

so, nascar tires last about 30-50 laps, indy tires last about 20-30, LeMans tires last about 13-26 (26 on a double stint when you are being extra careful about your tires)...

Racing puts an incredible amount of energy through tires, it is pretty fucking amazing they last as long as they do.

you are wrong and dumb and Read more

neat car, but nooop.

$7.5k for 145k miles on what is in reality an attractive old sentra is CP. this is a $3.5k car at most (and only then because it comes with both backs and spare T-tops, without those, $2.5k and only because it is pretty clean)

when my mom was a senior in high school, way back in 1952 or so, she and 3 friends were driving the dirt roads through the cornfields in Illinois in a jeep and got t-boned at one of those intersections. 2 of them died, my mom walked away with no injuries.

fuck corn.

sure, Elon is a psycho asshole. but I think you would be hard pressed to find a CEO of a transformational tech company that isn’t, never mind one who has founded 4 tech companies that have transformed their corner of the world.

if you took a full on side shot instead of the 1/4 front angle it would look _exactly_ like the jeep.  has the same upsweep at the back of the door opening and everything.
