    1. The issue with this approach is that...

      The issue with this approach is that consciousness, self-awareness, sensory perception aren't empirical phenomena. You could use your same assumptions to reason that people's emotions are all...

      Dreams can be life-changing. I've never tried lucid dreaming but this makes me curious.
    3. I'll put it this way - people dismiss...

      I'll put it this way - people dismiss supernatural claims on the basis that the claimed experiences merely coincide with something the claimant already knows, but do you really expect someone to...

      No, although ironically enough I upgraded to the Passat to drive around Napa because I didn't want to be seen there in a Sentra.

      Only a Japanese ghost would be conscious of its own embarrassment.

      The cynic in me thinks they want to jumpstart tourism (and cab fares) in an economic wasteland but then I remember my own strange experiences.
    7. I rented one a few years ago and it was the most...

      I rented one a few years ago and it was the most boring vehicle imaginable. I really can't figure out what VW was thinking when even Ford and Chevy are making snazzy-looking family sedans.
    8. The only logical answer is planned obsolescence....

      The only logical answer is planned obsolescence. How much would it cost them to make the impeller out of metal? VW went through the trouble of 5 valves per cylinder on the original 1.8T and that had...
    9. Didn't know you could build a new one from repro...

      Didn't know you could build a new one from repro parts. That would be a great father-son project.

      Ebay, pick and pulls and Craigslist have replaced pick and pulls. The bigger issue, as you say,...

      Russians don't even want Ladas if they can avoid them, They used to call them Legos for grownups because when you bought one your first stop was to a mechanic to screw in all the bolts properly....
    11. People will always want to connect with something...

      People will always want to connect with something tactile and manual. It's why young millenials are still into vinyl records, bicycles and cooking. In a crazy way I could see a Model A being more fun...

      It has some presence. The 2016 Civic sedans turn my head. They're not pretty cars but they're expressive rather than bland and inoffensive like most Hondas of the past ten years.

      Kind of embarrassing that I remember this but I spend a lot of time procrastinating on here when I was in law school back then and things like this were better than anything on TV:

      - He used to...

      I always loved the curves on these, they came out about the same time my 19 year old self found naughty photos of Liz Hurley and they both left an imprint on me.

      Not likely if it's been sitting in that grass for 4 years.

      Not disagreeing but why is California trying to implement H infrastructure as an alternative to EVs?

      And Baierl Fiat sent me a postcard announcing they are no longer selling Fiats or Alfas, so Alfa probably has greater challenges than floor space. That dealer's service department was incompetent - I...

      $49,500 honestly does not seem like a lot of money for an iconic film car. People pay significant premiums for vintage cars that have competition pedigrees but how many people alive today watched any...
