      Could the Delica be seen as a kind of crossover between a 4x4 and a minivan? The Space Gear (1994-2007) generation in particular seems to have acquired something of a cult following not only in Japan...

      Ummm... Cadillac has been its own brand since foundation. In fact, one of the reasons for its long-held dominance of American luxury, even accounting for the self-inflicted erosion of status from the...

      It occurs to me that some people have this romanticised view of Europe which is not limited to cars and driving, but other things too. As someone with European roots (Czech) and a close attachment to...

      FINALLY!

      Am I dreaming? A RWD Alfa Romeo sedan? Did common sense just prevail at Alfa HQ? :eek:

      OK, I knew it was coming along, and long talked of. But this could be the first Alfa in a long...

      15 years ago, in the early Vortex age, we all talked about how GM had bolted quantities of cheap-looking plastic onto certain cars (Pontiac among the worst offenders), and then there was the Aztek...

      Not only does the rear transaxle setup results in excellent weight distribution that results in amazing handling (and it was these cars as much as any which made Alfa Romeo legendary in that...

      From one "Vortex veteran" to another, beautiful, beautiful, beautifully said. The upscale creep of GM's brands took place over many decades - you could always get a loaded Oldsmobile, Buick or even...

      Both BMW and Mercedes-Benz lost me a while back but anyone familiar with my years on the CL will know that. The reason I back Cadillac right now is because of how far they have come along in our...

      Speaking of Impalas et al, let's not forget the last time a full-size RWD Cadillac existed:

      Firstly, "design language" is key - you can see with any number of manufacturers that most products from top to bottom share unmistakable design cues in each generation. Toyota has been instructive...

      A large RWD Cadillac? Count me in!

      14-15 years ago, when the VW Vortex community was in its youth (I was rather more active on it then!), it was a pipe dream. Today it's reality. Progress at last...

      2 stars is overall a poor rating and you have to look at the breakdowns. They are quite brutally honest about US and European airlines and their often self-inflicted problems. They also lavish praise...

      No I just think it's the head-in-sand attitude of the entire airline industry. US airlines have allowed themselves to fall from grace, often treating staff and passengers with contempt, and Americans...

      Market segmentation in Japan and Europe is, more often than not, defined by such factors as tax brackets which tends to create all kind of niches. Secondly, companies like Toyota and Nissan (and to a...
