I actually saw an XK-SS on the road in the San Fernando Valley. It may have been a replica, but I don't think it was. It had an original California black plate on it, and it looked, well, not perfect like some garage queen. It had the look of a car that had survived a lot of years. It's hard to explain, but it felt » 11/19/14 12:00am 11/19/14 12:00am

My problem with this is that I generally despise spending money on something I perceive to be of low quality, and I unwaveringly consider things that don't work with a high degree of reliability to be of poor quality. A Range Rover just doesn't work as well as a Camry. It cannot go for more than a few weeks without… » 11/08/14 3:11pm 11/08/14 3:11pm

The thing is, I doubt any new Acura "sport" car is going to have all the attributes that made the DC2 Integra as fantastic as it was. Said attributes being: double-wishbone suspension, a high-revving NA engine, a sub-2,700-lb. chassis, and a strikingly low cowl/beltline and thin roof pillars. » 11/07/14 7:22pm 11/07/14 7:22pm

Haggling is one of the least pleasant activities ever devised by humans. I don't want to waste even five minutes of my life on that shit, and basically refuse to do it. I don't want to steal the dealer's shirt, and I don't want to pay more than I can afford or something is worth. I want an honest, straightforward… » 11/07/14 7:06pm 11/07/14 7:06pm

Stupid, over-the-top, physics-defying street-racing is one thing. It's not necessarily a good thing, but it's one thing. This is more like a terrible, stupid, over-the-top, physics-defying action movie that tries to have a car integral to every scene. I don't think I'd enjoy that at all. » 11/03/14 6:23pm 11/03/14 6:23pm

I'm not much of a motorcycle person, but I freaking love the Captain America chopper. I don't care that it has terrible ergonomics. I don't care that it has no front brake. I don't care that it would be uncomfortable to ride, or difficult to control. » 10/15/14 11:29pm 10/15/14 11:29pm

That's cool and all, but VTEC isn't the best comparison to make here. VTEC's big party trick wasn't really variable valve timing. That had been around for a little while before VTEC was ever commercially available. VTEC was more about variable valve lift than anything else. It's party trick was in essentially having… » 10/15/14 11:21pm 10/15/14 11:21pm
