It never fails. Every auto show season, there's at least one automaker who rolls out a concept version of a new SUV that is — although they vehemently deny it — bound for production. That's all well and good, except when they somehow manage to lose the back two doors on the way to reveal day. »
Very rarely do I get into legit argument about cars with someone. I usually try to avoid arguments in general, especially when my conversation partner is SO sure. Like SO, SO, 100% SURE!! Which is why I was quick to revert into "agree-mode" when a truck driver told me he once hauled a mid-engined Aston Martin. »
The X4 might just be the smartest car BMW has made.
Warning: Rant Ahead. Have a Chrysler for your trouble. I'm beginning to think that I should not take any more trips to Canada. Don't get me wrong, I love Canada: You Canadians don't know how well you have it, with a beautiful country and polite society. I just cannot stand the CBSA/ASFC. They are basically as bad as… »
We, as automotive enthusiasts, are all guilty of it at some time or another, a new model comes out by brand we know and love but that car doesn't "fit" with what we believe that brand is all about. The new Jeep Renegade is the latest example of a small minority of afficionados labeling what they feel is or is not a "real… »
Out of boredom and want, I went and watched a 2007-2008 movie called SPEED MASTER, only to find out that the subs were nowhere near mediocre. Someone from France thought it was a good idea subbing it to English (it didn't work - the end result was HORRIBLE) and then a second sub file was, well - even though it wasn't… »
Due to Oppo rules and general laws of gentlemanship I'm not bothering to properly reference this phenomenon, but I still need to vent some steam out.
I wonder how does he do to spew that shit and return to Jalopnik to spew even more shit without feeling, in any way, depressed or traumatized. It's not like he has… »
What can one person can add to the conversation about the Ford Mustang that hasn't already been said? One simple internet search can bring up countless pages of credence and cynicism exclusively devoted to America's most popular sports car. No opinion is left unheard, each and every remark is horribly clichéd. »
Was talking to someone, they were comparing their AMG to their beigemobile Civic. OF COURSE a Civic won't handle as well as a RWD 2 door coupe... of course it will "never catch up to" the AMG... sheesh. Then they start hating on the Civic as if it's the worst car ever made and the AMG is God's gift to mankind... and… »
As the "Why Wagons?" question has arisen again, so has the argument from some North Americans that wagons are mom-mobiles. So I'll ask again, when was the last time you saw a North American mother hauling around a family in a station wagon? »
It didn't really work - and to add to the mix, my mother practically told me never to call her ever again as soon as she moves to Tennessee - lumping me with the house that she and my father fell behind on payments. So I have no home internet and a house that's doomed to be foreclosed upon. »
I got a notice that I'm eligible to renew my license online. Sweet! So I fill out their online form all the way through. The last page says print out and sign the form for when I go to my local branch to renew. What crap is that? Apparently I was only able to pre-renew?
Superbird for reading my rant.
