I'm a 32 year old man who always preferred and skewed and bought European (used) and later Japanese, because when your shelling out for a new car, they are hard to beat on price and quality. When I lost my car in Sandy I eventually plunked down for a Focus ST, was great fun on the 3 test drives and there was no new… » 2/20/15 4:28pm 2/20/15 4:28pm

The 1995 WRC car they were cought cheating. That alone forever immortalized the Celica name, and if that's not good enough for you, then because, SEGA Rally. Note I pourposly picked a picture from the Safari Rally because that was one amazing bad-ass WRC event. » 2/20/15 10:29am 2/20/15 10:29am

So without doing any kind of work on my end, does A123 supply products for any non-automotive fields? I'll bet they do, but if they don't, then that tells us this Apple thing is going to be automotive. I HIGHLY doubt it will be a car, it makes far, far FAR more sense for them to supply components and technology to… » 2/19/15 10:10am 2/19/15 10:10am

As an owner, your spot on about why this car is so great, and why it makes almost nothing else matter. I'd never buy an auto one, but I'd never willingly buy an auto anything including Porsche or Alfa 4C. DCT's are autos, just stop it, they are. » 2/17/15 5:57pm 2/17/15 5:57pm

I think believing you need to get the equivalent dollar amount or more as your policy cost in repairs or it's otherwise a "waste" is not exactly the right way of looking at it. Part of what your paying for is piece of mind and "just in case" coverage, just like insurance. I mean if you buy a new car and get… » 2/06/15 4:28pm 2/06/15 4:28pm

If you've ever done this in India, you realize that if the car your in or the driver you have doesn't kill you then someone else on the road will and there is really fuck-all you can do about it so vehicle condition is really out of the top 10 things to worry about on your list. It's even better knowing that if your… » 2/06/15 12:17pm 2/06/15 12:17pm

I have some serious trouble believing that the interior wasn't redone. Forget about no wear and tear marks on the upholstery, NO foam cushion can hold that kind of shape after 30 years and 195k. None, period, end of story, it was redone. » 2/06/15 9:37am 2/06/15 9:37am

The success of the design really speaks volume and keeping things simple, minimalism and form following function. I think this is true about many iconic designs, especially ones that live on for decades. The 911 may have been more designed, but it was still about form follows function and it was simple too. » 2/05/15 10:00am 2/05/15 10:00am
