      The skirted fenders and funny name were the two best features of the Charade. But aside from the West Coast, Daihatsu didn't have much of a U.S. dealer network, and there was plenty of competition in...

      My favorite was the velour seats in my mom's 1985 Jetta. Too bad that material disappeared decades ago due to cost-cutting. The upholstery on the seats in my 1992 Jetta felt like it was made out of...

      The story I heard is that some races started with the driver standing outside the car, so being able to reach in through the window and start the engine before even getting in was a time advantage....

      The "speeding bullet" is actually supposed to represent an old-fashioned outboard headlight (the kind still used on motorcycles), with "light rays" coming from it.

      LOL at them calling it "I-95". Nobody in NJ calls the Turnpike that... ever.

      I have a 2012 Impreza sedan with the 2.0 and manual. It's slow off the line, but once you get going, the power is adequate. Mine burns a 1/2 quart of oil in about 1500 to 2000 miles, but as long as...

      VW's use of the Eurostile font on their gauges, dashboard switches, and radios (early '80s through early 2000s):

      My uncle had a '90s Toyota Corolla base model that had a plastic knockout plug with the Toyota logo on it, in place of where the clock would go on the fancier models. This was back when the base...

      I have more problem with people ahead of me driving with just their DRLs on at night. Many new vehicles have gauges that light up all the time, so drivers have no clue they don't have their full...

      Don't be so pessimistic! We've only been doing trickle-down economics for the past 35 years. It just needs more time to start working! :laugh:

      Two things I remember most about the Dynasty are how narrow it is for its length (due to its K-Car platform), and the terrible grinding/ratcheting noise the Chrysler Ultrafail transmission would make...

      MT's standards weren't very high... in 1986, they even nominated the Yugo for the Import Car Of The Year award.

      I also found it amusing that the VW GTI won MT's domestic COTY award in 1985, since...

      "Not sold in America..." anymore. Opels were sold as captive imports in U.S. Buick dealers from 1958 to 1975.

      Climate ≠ weather.

      Global warming is proven fact. (The only "controversy" or "debate" is whether or not human activity is contributing to it. 97% of scientists believe it is.)
