Dodge Needs to Get Its Act Together - Fast(Jan 25, 2014)They need quality in their cars. I just traded my 2013 Durango Citadel for a Toyota. Why? Because within a year of ownership the Durango developed a vibration when accelerating and odd wobble during driving.
Ford Reveals Special Raptor(Apr 10, 2013)Yep, if you are looking at this vehicle and thinking about fuel economy, you are looking in the wrong place ;)
Two Ferrari F50s Play Tug of War(Apr 10, 2013)Why do people treat these cars the way they do? Because they are cars, just pieces of metal that are way overpriced. If one can afford a vehicle like this, they should enjoy it, not park it and stare at it. Nice to see these things put through the paces, nice to see them drive and be treated like real cars, more videos please.
Bugatti Presents 3 Veyron Roadsters(Mar 05, 2013)The replacement will most likely look identical to the old thing. Nowadays, more and more cars are entering the 1000hp range and the only thing that makes Bugatti unik/special is the price.
Ferrari Enzo Goes Rallying(Feb 12, 2013)Now, this is how you treat a CAR! Never understood people who buy them and store them. As good as it is, as priceless as it is, to enjoy it you have to drive it!
Porsche Announces 918 Spyder Pricing(Jan 22, 2013)I don't know, not a big Porsche fan. But even if someone is reach enough to buy one, dropping that much on a PORSCHE? I can justify any ultra-exotic, but this I just don't get it.
5 Car Bankruptcies of 2012(Jan 15, 2013)I had no idea DeTomaso was still in business. I guess, one way to STAY in business is to actually make your presence known.
Nissan Posts 7:19.1 Ring Lap in Latest GT-R(Jan 11, 2013)Not trying to start a war. I actually like the Godzilla, but in the long run when electronics begin breaking, it's gonna be pretty expensive to fix them. That said, great car ;)
Kia Repositioning Itself as a Premium Brand(Dec 26, 2012)Never thought I would ever hear Hyndai/Kia and Luxury brand in the same sentence. Maybe my grandchildren will think of it that way because they won't know where these cars came from, but in my mind it will always be an economy brand of cars. Well, at least until something REALLY impresses me.
Lexus Builds the Final LFA(Dec 17, 2012)For some odd reason I think of this car as a Supra on steroids and not worth the price tag. maybe $60 or $70 G, and that would be stretching it. I just see Lexus as an overpriced Toyota, but that's just my opinion. I do love real Supras though. ;)
Hooning a Rolls-Royce Phantom(Dec 16, 2012)I felt bad for the beautiful country side, but it does look cool when an expensive car is being used for fun, not some home-to-country club commute.
Lamborghini Issues Aventador Recall(Dec 16, 2012)Well, I guess my theory about NOT buying first or even second year production cars is being proven on these expensive vehicles as well. But it sure is nice to be one of the really first ones ;)
Bigfoot Electrifies the Monster Truck(Dec 16, 2012)It kind of looks cool, like an oversized toy, but kind of boring to watch. Can you imagine a Monster Jam with these bee-sounding things? I thought that people go to see these things for their ability to LOUDLY distrust the surroundings while puffing tons of exhaust smoke into the atmosphere ;)
GT500 Drags C63 AMG on the Strip(Dec 15, 2012)No matter how sophisticated Mercedes is, the roughness of the Shelby puts a smile on my face every single time I drive it. Before I got it, I was looking at a few Mercedes cars and now am REALLY glad I made the right decision by buying this wild, unsophisticated, crazy car. Can't drive it in the snow, but oh well, global warming is making winters shorter ;)
Mustang Boss 302 to Retire in 2014(Nov 08, 2012)And a couple full of clothes in the trunk. So the car was pretty full. But come next summer, if there is a road trip to take, I have a cruiser to take me there and and participate in any local car shows I see on the side of the road. :) great car!
Mustang Boss 302 to Retire in 2014(Nov 08, 2012)City driving is around 14. Long trip, like the one I took, 21 MPGs. Once it's in 6th gear, going around 80, it's pretty good on gas. This includes my wife and my sister in-law on the back seat. ;)
Mustang Boss 302 to Retire in 2014(Nov 08, 2012)David, I was not referring to your post about your dad having one. I did not even read that far down, I just wanted to state my opinion. I get a lot of surprised looks when I tell people I drive this car. I even took the car on a 900 mile road trip, and I was surprised how comfortable it was!
Mustang Boss 302 to Retire in 2014(Nov 08, 2012)If you buy one, do yourself a favor and actually drive one. I bought a 2012 GT500 and drove the leaving crap out of it and enjoyed every single moment of it. Now it is winter parked, or until the next 50ish or 60ish day, and I miss it. Can't wait till spring ;) Cars are made for enjoyment and crazy depreciation, not to be stored and than sold for profit!
The World's Greatest Drag Race Returns for 2012(Aug 26, 2012)To those of you who say "save 100,000 and keep up with Lamborghini", it's just stupid. At the end of the day, a Lamborghini is going to be a Lamborghini while a cheaper car is always gonna be a cheaper. Be honest and admit that if you could afford it, you would buy a Lamborghini. I myself have a GT500, and I admit it was and still is my realistic dream car. However, if I had the funds, I would of bought all the other cars, except the BZR or whatever it's called. Give credit where it's due, Lambo
