I know what you’re going to say - I’m insane for saying this. After all, crossovers are a massively booming market, displacing the midsize sedan in America, and displacing the MPV (what we Americans would call the minivan) in Europe.
Sonic Gray Pearl is the best color on the Civic Hatch:
“Once you have experienced excellence, you will never again be content with mediocrity.” Quality is an elusive thing, but we know it when it stares us in the face. When I read Steve Jobs’ biography, I was struck by the stories about how he’d obsess over the tiniest details, like the screws in the MacBook and precise…
How much does this panel cost?
I’d always looked longingly at those who lived on farms growing up - those who could hoon around with bikes, quads, and cars, getting up to all manner of hijinx.
I genuinely think the Corolla iM (Formerly Scion iM?) has a lot of potential to make the Toyota lineup slightly exciting. Current reviews show that it has great ride and handling, with pretty much the only real downside being the extremely anemic 1.8L NA motor.
Where in the world are the vtec badges on this thing? It looks like it should have some, but there are none anywhere! I did like driving the new civic hatchback, and it surprised me at the quickness! Here is my take on it:
Saw one like this the other day, actually looks halfways decent in blue.
Most of the cutting is done on the old shell for now. Time to work on the metal work to blend to the hatch shape.
Oh, the things I’d do if I had the space and money. This would make a really fun/cheap track car and at-least-every-once-in-a-while B-Spec race car. I’m already very familiar with the chassis, too.
Since third-generation (2007), Subaru Impreza replaced the wagon with the hatchback due to decline of station wagons and the rise of SUVs and minivans in Japan. While some Imprezas were offered with FWD, most Imprezas in global market are 4WDs. This include insane WRX STI, which is already a rally homologation.
De Nysschen, at Cadillac, said consumer tastes will always ebb and flow. “It was sedans and then it was wagons and then it became vans and then crossovers,” he explained. “Now you’re getting crossovers that are getting lower.” He added: “If we carry on long enough, we’re back to hatchbacks.”
I had always been a little unsure about the Subaru Impreza WRX/STI platform. It’s a very accomplished chassis: in addition to its massive success in motorsports there is a huge aftermarket filled with potential for high horsepower, ground-pounding beasts that can rip through and power out of corners unlike many other…
Having fun in one of the emptier sections of Latigo a few weeks ago (though pic above is from Angeles Forest).
I was devastated. It was 4:30 PM and I was aboard a Virigin America flight sitting on the tarmac at Chicago O’Hare International Airport. About 2 minutes before departing I checked my email one last time before we were in the air. My heart stopped: the HR person I had been coordinating with broke the news that the…
A 323 GTX said goodbye to it’s internals today so that another could go on. Because the rallycar must go on.
Been meaning to post this for a while, but I just kept forgetting. Then I helped my mom clear out the basement last weekend and it jogged my memory.
