Simple question: we all have cars that we lust after, sometimes planning on how we can afford them, but there are some cars that, as much as we love, we go “nah, I could never own that”. Either due to money, practicality, or rarity, there’s something stopping us. So, what’s that car for you?
Secretariat. Affirmed. Alydar. They are demigods, the racing horses to beat all racing horses, legends among every Thoroughbred, rivaled only by Count Fleet, Man o’ War, Kelso and Citation (their QOTD is lined up, coming next week).
There are cars we like. There are cars we love. There are cars we don’t like or love. And there are cars that deep down, we have a connection to, but somehow it’s hard to say we like or love the car because reasons or opinions. What car do you wish you were brave enough to love?
There have been a trillion lists of World’s Greatest Racing Drivers, measured using a trillion metrics, debated by not really a trillion people. But I still think there’s another way to measure the greatness of a driver: it’s when that great driver is driving a race car that is not really... good.
Here’s another completely random installment of Oppo QOTD! In Oppo QOTD, we ask YOU, the actual readers, ALL OF THE CAT THINGS! Do we do a AOTD? Nah. So hop on board for some late morning/early afternoon fun!
Every manufacturer has given you permission, just give a call. Part of the package are the crew, supplies, and one spare should you bin the entire car, somehow. If you’re on a rally raid machine, there’s rescue both ahead and behind you.
What else from 1992 would look totally out of place at an Antique car show?
If the evil prince Bernie had an online vote to have a high speed oval on the calender, would you vote YES or NO. Also, which track?
America is a big place, like Canada, but below it. Each state has its own flavor, the culture and traditions that make it unique. So if the culture of your state or municipality was condensed into a single automobile, what would it be? For my own great Commonwealth of Virginia, it would be any car pulled over for…
I’m in San Diego for the U.S. launch of the new Yamaha XSR900, and we’re leaving in a few minutes to experience the bike in a mix of city and canyon riding. Get your questions in now so I can think about them while riding or ask the Yamaha guys.
I’ve gotten a total of three tickets in my entire life. The first was in 2012 for going 16 over in a 45mph. The one was $120. The second time, I was clocked going 5 over in a 35mph (different county), that one was also $120. But just last Fall, I got the ticket to end all of my tickets, a window tint…
Surprisingly the city that was built around cars is incredibly hard on cars. Detroit is a hostile place with bad drivers and even worse road conditions. How would you get around the motor city?
A friend of mine is stuck in a meeting, but gave me the keys to his new car. I’m sitting in it right now typing this. If I pull it out and hoon, I’ll lose a friend. If I don’t, I miss the experience, but keep the friend. Decisions, decisions.
what segment of cars do you hate and wish the world can be free of? well now your dreams can be a reality! *only in oppo* if you were to pick one car segment you hated and wanted to rid the world of, what would it be?
I’ll start with my little sister (19) and her 2002 Mercedes-Benz E320.
There are some amazing paint schemes out there: Gulf, Martini, Jeff Gordon’s Rainbow Warrior, but what about the worst? Show us your personal least favorite racing paint scheme.
In celebration of the NSX’s $1,200 floor & trunk mats, we bring you our first QOTD. And it’s ok, since Jalopnik (damn them) killed it off. So, we would like you to tell us what the most ludicrously priced option is and why.
Pretty straightforward: Say Top Gear or the Jeremy-Richard-James car show decides to use music from the Star Wars movies. What do you think will the car or cars be, and where would they review it?
After seeing the VW Ameo, a thought suddenly came out of my brain: what if this became RWD?
I’m headed home today from school, around 2 and a half hours, which means I will still be listening to music for less time then your average Comcast customer on hold. But to the point, Radar Love gets my nod. It’s a high energy classic and I’ve never heard anyone who didn’t like it. If there are enough replies I’ll…
