Hear the New Mustang GT Rev its V8(Dec 08, 2013)Sorry Bruce, I gotta say the Challenger is the mucliest of anything on the road today. I'll give you the Camaro and Mustang though; except when they're in ZL1 and GT500 trim. To me muscle means V8, manual, 2 doors, and leather seats.
Ford Mustang Convertible Pops its Top(Dec 06, 2013)I think the rear points upwards a little too much. I dislike every new edition of the Mustang when they come out but over time I love what they grow into. I just hope it drops the price of the '12s enough that I can buy a 5.0.
Fast and Furious 7 Will Continue Filming(Dec 02, 2013)I agree it should be a sensitive send off but FF is a Billion dollar franchise. Walkers character Brian wasn't really the star anymore. It was Diesel and Rock during 5&6 that made it fun. Gonna be weird without him.
Actor and Car Guy Paul Walker Killed(Dec 01, 2013)I'd like to dedicate this thread to Fast & Furious quotes...
"Brian Earl Spilner; sounds like a serial killer name. Is that what you are?"
Actor and Car Guy Paul Walker Killed(Dec 01, 2013)Randall. Fast 6 was actually a good one. The FF series started when I was 17 and I had a 98 Civic, so I saw the original 6 times in the theater and have owned it on VHS, DVD, Blu, and Digital. It's my favorite cheesy movie.
Is the Mini Rocketman Still Possible?(Dec 01, 2013)That etched roof is the cherry on top (no pun) that makes this car special. The Minis are just so darn expensive for what you get I'd have to go Fiat to warrant a purchase of a city car
1994 Dodge Viper Has Just 504 Miles(Nov 29, 2013)Not defending the plastics but with a car this badass all that matters is a V10, leather, and a manual transmission. Leave the posh interiors to the wannabes. Wood trim doesn't improve 0-60 times...
Jaguar F-Type is 'The British Corvette'(Nov 24, 2013)Paul I agree. The FType is gorgeous. I think it's an honor for something to be compared to the Vette...60 years of heritage and a symbol for the 'every man' sports car. I can't buy a Ferrari but a C7 isn't out of the question. Nor is the FType.
Macan: Porsche's Smallest, Cheapest SUV Model(Nov 24, 2013)Calvin good point...about the price. I read that as well. It starts at $51k, which is the Cayenne base price. I guess if you don't have a family to haul it'd be a hard decision but my money would go Cayenne.
The Acura NSX Will Forever be Brilliant(Nov 23, 2013)I've always loved these. However, their styling isn't future proof. They look very '90s' to me. The R8 has taken its place in my eyes. That and the GTR.
F-Type Coupe is Jaguar Designer's Favorite(Nov 22, 2013)Don't know about better than Ferrari but I will take it over a similarly priced Porsche any day of the week. I'm still trying to figure out if I like the hard top or glass roof better.
Cop Opens Fire at Minivan Full of Kids(Nov 18, 2013)Race aside she fled the scan and her son was fighting an officer. The shots fired were not from the original officer and it was the mothers fault that all this happened. Take your ticket and move on. The fact the kid was going to fight an officer
Clarkson and Hammond Banned from Driving in France(Nov 17, 2013)Randall. I'm a Top Gear fan. They do in real life what you do in your imagination. I love their opinions and it doesn't matter if I don't make my own cuz I'm never buying a $300k car. Plus 87 in a 55 isn't that dangerous.
SRT Viper Color Contest Winner is 'Competition Blue'(Nov 17, 2013)Michael. When you went to submit names you couldn't duplicate so I guess he got there early. And I agree that the prize should've been a Competition Blue Viper. Or at least a day at the track with one...
The Greatness of the Original Dodge Challenger(Nov 09, 2013)Restomods are gaining in popularity. Mecum (man I love a 24 hour weekend of Mecum) has both rolling thru all the time and it's hard to imagine driving a $400k OG Challenger around, but an $80k resto is totally doable.
The Greatness of the Original Dodge Challenger(Nov 09, 2013)My favorite is the Panther Pink TA from 1970. Like the guy below me, the uglier the color, the better I think it looks. There's a nasty brown from 72 that looks stunning on the car. My favorite is the Cuda, then Challenger.
This Plymouth Superbird Might Fetch $500k(Nov 05, 2013)My 2002 mustang had a pistol grip. Since the intro of the 2005, they went with a ball shifter and it feels like you're driving a honda. Pistol grips take the fun factor up a notch.
Reader's Rides: Tyler Tarbox(Oct 29, 2013)All the rich kids had Lightnings when I was in high school and til this day...I'm totally jealous. Love your truck man. Congrats on not wrecking yours like most of those Dbags.
Is This The 2015 Ford Mustang?(Oct 28, 2013)This is just an update to the current retro theme. I thought they were getting away from that. I think it looks great.
BMW Makes Even More Expensive 7-Series(Oct 26, 2013)Borphan, I agree. There needs to be a change at BMW or I'm moving my sights to Audi or Benz. Our 2008 X3 is growing older by the day and it still looks the same as the '13. I used to love BMW...before I got one. Grass is always greener.
What if Mercedes Built an S-Class Wagon?(Oct 25, 2013)Not bad. We just got an R500. Took a couple days but I love it. Never thought of myself as a wagon guy but we needed the cargo and that V8 is no slouch.
Chevy Dealer Wants $100,000 for 2014 Stingray(Oct 25, 2013)Aaron, I agree with that. I still don't think anyone should pay that but business is business. I also agree with the other guy that said they'd make it up later in referrals. Gotta pay to play though.
Lamborghini Unveils Veneno Roadster(Oct 18, 2013)Harry I appreciate you may not like this but me liking it doesn't make me anything. This is a car most of us can only dream of. That's what makes it special to me.
We Love NFL's Alfred Morris, Here's Why(Oct 17, 2013)Ryan, nice thought but there's no way they'd do that. I wish they'd bring back the "Cash for clunkers" program. I've always thought companies should give X dollars if you trade your car in for the same model.
2015 Mustang to Debut in December(Oct 17, 2013)I don't see this as being the final design. This screams retro, and reports are they're getting away from that. There are photos of the front end floating around online and it looks a lot nicer than this.
F430 Scuderia Slams into SLS AMG(Oct 15, 2013)Lol Lou...I agree. What's the point in spending the cash if you're just going to look at it in the garage. It's like buying a house and sleeping in the yard so you don't get the floors dirty.
Via Motors Hybrid Pickups: The End of Manliness?(Oct 09, 2013)I see nothing wrong with a hybrid pickup. But c'mon Honda K, why would you assume trucks are for guys with tiny...egos? I use my Ram for hauling and towing. I don't think a Prius can do those things.
