      With you. Apparently they're damned if they do, damned if they don't - I doubt it will look fresh for long but at least it's memorable.

      I do think those fenders look like they're 5 feet tall -...

      This particular dealer hawks a lot of high-mileage luxo-cars on Craigslist to people who can't do the math. That said, it's rare to get any car up to 315k without an engine or transmission rebuild...

      I'm sticking with factory Pure White on my '75 when I finally get it running. I'm taking off the bumpers and painting the Rostyles and I figure it will look classy and bring out the line and details.

      I hope they figure out the dealer network better than they did with FIAT - and don't plan on having my local FIAT dealer sell these.

      I don't see they beauty in 2 car boutique showrooms. I'd rather see some variety and take my time with the car I like than need to get a salesman to chaperone me around the lot in the middle of...

      I'm not bonkers over it but I'm excited about what it means - mainstream market testing of extended-range EVs.

      I don't think these had all aluminum bodies. That sort of thing makes me think the seller is uninformed and in way over his head, a tinkerer who saw Porsche and cheap and could fix it up once he...

      You'll probably just make yourself nuts if you don't hire a lemon law attorney. I'm an attorney and I'm glad I hired a lemon law attorney. Manufacturers' attorneys know and respect them and they can...

      I can't tell if you're serious or trolling. I've been on Vortex since 2003 and I mainly do it to look at other people's odd project cars and to try to find good conversation once in a while. That's...

      I'm in a similar situation as you, and gas prices are part of the appeal, but even at $2/gallon an electric car is cheaper to run. Add to that:
      - less time and money spent on oil changes and brake...
