Wow, I do like that front fender trim treatment. That’s really something. I kind of wish we’d get that sort of stuff on modern motorcycles. Make them look futuristic.

Uhhhhhh... No. You shouldn’t shed a tear when mergers on this scale happen, you should be fucking terrified. Corporate consolidation kills anything that isn’t immediately profitable, and ultimately brings the market to stagnation while increasing the prices. Without outside competition the sole source of the service Read more

The current 370Z is 3,360 lbs. in it’s lightest trim level. The 370Z Nismo is 3,510 lbs. for a 2019. Combined with it’s high center of gravity and rather lengthy wheelbase, the car has some serious momentum going into turns. Combine that with the taller gear ratios and the softer suspension until you hit the Nismo Read more

Welcome to 2001, NASCAR. You can finally join your cousins V8 Supercars and BTCC over at the table there.

Looking back at the actual history of the Fairlady Z, it’s had a real problem of being a non-competitive car that wants to be multiple things at once.

Likely would’ve cost too much. These things were dealer sold, so they had to conform to certain laws, unlike kit cars. DOT certification for custom headlights likely would’ve bankrupted them, as the DOT had only just started allowing composite headlights in 1984. The Quicksilver only came out that year, so they Read more

Nope. Rear glass doesn’t fit, and the the seal goes all the way to the top. In American Escort hatchbacks, none of them have bubbled glass and they all have a plastic insert that cuts the top off, making the seal have ninety degree corners up top.

So that’s a Ford Escape front grille, and a Subaru Leone rear hatch:

Which is exactly why they’re great. Touch screens and pressure sensitive controls have a very small deadzone and margin of error. Dials are slightly better, but still have a comparatively tiny travel since their travel is measured in circumference instead of distance. There’s a reason sensitive equipment uses dials Read more

It really does. I wish everyone would adopt the system, because you can just listen to audio cues, use muscle memory, and feel the travel limits of the joystick to use almost the entire interface without looking. Versus touchscreens where you have to look to make sure not only that it received your input, but that it Read more

I still maintain that every manufacturer should adopt this system for their infotainment systems:

Considering the AE86 Sprinter Trueno, which the GT86 clearly wants to be the successor to, moved to FWD with it’s next AE92 generation... I wouldn’t be surprised. Y’know, someone one told me time’s a flat circle.

This is the problem with New York in the modern era. Real estate is not worth what people want, and it pushes the people who keep the city running out of the city. Plenty of storefronts are empty and stay empty for months because nobody can afford to move in, or because it’s too expensive to rent or buy the lot to Read more

No. Because at that point you would be better off with a full tailgate. Leaving the tailgate at the beltline instead means you can use the back of the vehicle like a truck bed, where things sticking out of the rear are held in place with gravity and friction. The lesser your angle, the lesser the gravity and the more Read more

Having a starship named “Busey” made me think of him being the voice of the ship, and then imagining him with the echo of an intercom system made me remember this:

I wouldn’t be so sure. I know plenty of non-enthusiasts who say they wouldn’t buy a new car because the supposed “replacement” doesn’t handle their needs. Going from a Legacy from 2003 to a modern Legacy is switching entire segments, and you don’t even get a wagon anymore. You could go with the Forester, but the Read more

I’m surprised they aren’t leveraging some of their power to completely lock the paparazzi out of their lives. People are still going to be stalking them and taking pictures or rushing them to catch an off-guard statement that they can misconstrue.

Ah, whatever. Even if you hate Kid Rock you can’t help but love that opening scene where the Monte Carlo smashes through a housing development. I mean, look at the video thumbnail!

This is exactly why marketing doesn’t work on me. I’ve worked so long beside people that use these mindsets that it’s made me apathetic. I don’t care what other people think in terms of my image, I care about practicality.

You give me extra features I don’t want and you immediately go to the bottom of the list. The Read more
