I had a long post filled with provocative adverbs and evocative imagery which juxtaposed the British driving experience to American Jazz. I later went on to describe how American Cars took on influences of British Rock as compensation but instead, deleted it all to just post that I like this 2012 XF.
Their “fuel” cover opens towards the rear lights. I can’t think of any other vehicles where, when you open the cover, your hand travels towards the rear of the car rather than towards the headlights. Doesn’t matter which side of the car your tank is on or if your cover is on the front fenders. This is unhinging, kin.
I cant keep up with who actually got a what and to whom is shopping which now. If you bought a car recently (the last 18 months), show me. If you are emotionally available to buying a car in the next 18 months and are UCS, show me!
Before the Ford Raptor, the highest flying Ford was the Taurus! I love watching movies and seeing just how many of a single automaker's cars they can fit on screen at one time.
The Levante GTS is fantastic and the LV Trofeo is pretty close to where I was expecting it to be in power and price (though I called it an MC). I love the refresh on the GB and QP, and the GT is still holding strong. Can’t wait for the new lineup and I’m hoping the GB gets the V6 F154 soon since I don’t think the V8…
Nothing like watching behind the scenes footage of car stunts, especially from 90s Jackie Chan movies. I keep saying that I’ll sit down and watch Thunderbolt instead of just the clips (I have a bad habit of stringing clips but never watching the movies).
Listened to a lot of TA13OO and have to say that Denzel Curry has a very refreshing work ethic and strong instincts for thematic development. Really mature work and hope he gains a lot of popularity this year. I posted ‘Clout Cobain’ below since it’s the one to know about.
That $68,000 modified Kia Stinger has had its price cut down to $51,300 (original MSRP). I estimate around $8,000 to $12,000 in dealer backed mods going for free. Most of the parts appeared on Kia’s SEMA cars, too.
There was a small group at Porsche tasked with redesigning the rear of the Cayman in order to make adding engine fluids easier... foolproof... “Americanized.” Once the changes were made and the scuff guard integrated, one engineer looked at the two circles flanking seven slats and said, “That’s a Jeep.”
I noticed this a couple weeks ago with Hyundai followed by BMW and now Kia. Not long ago, when you went on their sites, the sedans were the first cars shown in the lineups. Now, the utility lineup leads the way and may even be the first car shown on the sites. I’m wondering how long until brands like Toyota, Nissan,…
From Express-Up requiring ARS to plain old money grabbing, minor-diety Brian Cooley explains why some cars will roll down the window automatically but not back up. He even answers why (in a time where reinventing the shifters is out of hand) window switches aren’t dial, rocker-switches or even touch screens.
Make it epic and show them your Pop Technique!
The goose is loose!! This is where minor seals must go clubbing, so savage. Don’t hurt ‘em, Goose!
Since November, I have been speculating that the 4-cyl Supra will start around $33,000 and the 6-cyl will start right around $39,000. But I’m curious if any of you are starting to rethink pricing for the A90 now that there is actual information coming out? As for the Z4, I’m not so solid on that car.
The 2018 Buick Regal Sportback starts at $24,995 and comes standard with a 250 hp, 2.0t engine. This currently makes it one of (if not) the most powerful new cars in the US under $25,000 MSRP. This and the Accord are currently my favorite options in the class.
Three vehicle garage inspired by Jasons since it’s Friday the 13th. You need something action packed (Statham), something big but hard to outrun (Voorhees), and something that raises questions rather than hell (Torchinsky). Remember that no one knows Miss Fortune like Pat Sajak and, as always, enjoy yo’self!
The fuel economy is slightly worse than the Pista and it’s certified for the 2019 model year. Is this just the convertible version? I consider myself sterncore about Ferraris so shame on me if I missed it.
