The Only Tacoma Review You Shouldn’t Read!
Here are two very similar videos; on from the U.S., and one from France. The American one was shot by me, with the help of my little brother, some five years ago. I have no idea who shot the French one, but it’s from 2014. Both of them feature something that is incredibly cool to anyone who is either around 12 years…
This is TL;DR Uncut, a more detailed review of the title vehicle. For the original TL;DR Review, click here.
Welcome to TL;DR Reviews! Here, I tell you what you need to know about a car in about the same time it (apparently) takes to get a Prius up to 60 MPH. I have not seen real world evidence to suggest otherwise.
Sales were up 29 percent in April to 7,500, and they are at 29,000 year-to-date. I mean, I like this truck and everything it does well. But how is this gaining sales when we have a fresh Tacos on a Ridgeline in Colorado?
What to do with the poor Blazer....it’s sitting behind the garage of the old house, I ran it last night and the exhaust looked unhappy
You have a few variants to the cabins of fullsize trucks: 2-door, 2+2 with rear hinged or half sized doors, and fullsize 4-door. Here’s my proposition, why dont we call each cabin variant the same damn thing across the entire industry? I know, I’m a madman!!
Apparently selling Volkswagen’s in Salem, New Jersey has gotten so bad that they would rather put used trucks in their front yard than their new Volkswagen lineup!
Specifically I want to talk about “truck” word associations. I think one of the more pervasive themes of truck talk is centered around what a truck “is” as well as who should and shouldn’t own one.
You get desensitized to 1/2 ton truck sizes when they are everywhere around you and treated like “entry level” products. Whose first car or driving experience was a full size truck (Southern Oppos especially)? I learned in an F150 long bed, and learned manual in a Wrangler.
I don’t need a truck, or really want one, considering what a modern truck costs, and my old man would keel over if I bought anything with a blue oval on it, but damn that’s a good looking truck. Provided this link works.
Do you have insomnia? Do you have a love for classic 80s Monster Trucks? Well tonight’s showings are for you! Experience classic Monster Trucks from the early days, when steel bodies and KC lights ruled the arenas. So sit back and enjoy classic Monster Trucking at its finest.
Here are some quick stats:
Retrospective is a series that takes a look at interesting vehicles that aren’t frequently written about. They may not be classics, but they definitely are worth a look.
In their February 2015 issue, Car and Driver compared similarly-equipped Tundra, Ram, F-150, and Silverado models. Since the Tundra and Ram are both basically irrelevant for my purposes here, I want to focus on the battle between the Silverado and F-150. Here’s the deal.
Greetings Opponauts. I ran across this weird ... thing while running errands this afternoon.
