    1. To be fair the biggest problems with that engine...

      To be fair the biggest problems with that engine is that the technology was only half-baked at the time and it wasn't developed enough (read: cheaped-out). Today they could build an engine that...

      Exactly. Cadillac and VW both need the same thing. A couple of new CUVs... Post haste! To argue anything else is just folly, whether you personally want that kind of car or not.

      Yeah, they kick ass, though the reduction boxes make them handle... differently. (I even autocrossed mine once!)

      Too bad they're so damned expensive now. :eek: 25 years ago they were dirt cheap!

      Fixed.

      Why put it up front if the bed is already high? There's plenty of room for an engine back there and believe me, you don't want it up front if you're in a collision. Up front it interferes...

      Welcome to the forum. :beer:

      If I were in your position I would sandblast the floor, weld the pinholes shut, chemically treat it to remove and isolate the rust, paint it and use truck bed liner...

      If you're talking about me, then you seem incapable of absorbing clearly defined intent. If you're not, then who?

      Your posting mind tricks don't work on me, boy.

      It was during the 'malaise era' of fuel economy. It switched between 4-6-8 cylinders according to demand. It was great in theory, but not so great in practice. Most were scrapped a long, long time...

      Hrrrmmmmmm... That's not exactly a new idea for them, as I had something similar a couple of decades ago. Of course, it didn't have the luxuries of this one. It didn't have a coffee maker, leather...

      Surprisingly it didn't even enter my mind when I saw it. :laugh:

      Nope. I don't think so. It's not like it was when the Northstar made its debut. Also, it wasn't a bad engine for the time, even if it was a bit finicky.



      They used the V8 architecture for the...
    14. Yes. Yes I understand that. :) :beer: Also:...

      Yes. Yes I understand that. :) :beer:

      Also: More than you can afford, pal. Rolls-Royce. :wave:




      Quite so. :beer:

      Also also: More than you can afford, pal. Aston Martin. :wave:

      Are you under the impression that the regulators for crash standards care about or even think about the regulators for CAFE standards? Do you think either body cares about Lotus? Do you think they...

      Yeah, I thought about it after I posted. I knew Caterham didn't have to deal with it.

      Morgan will be relegated to selling only the 3-wheeler in the U.S. then, I suppose. How long do they have? Is...

      Yeah, I'm not into big cars, but every time I see one I'll still say Hnnnnnnnnnnggggggg!

      While I understand the hows and whys of this kind of thing, it really makes me sad. :(

      How do Caterham and Morgan get around this? Well, besides the Morgan 3-wheeler, of course. (:P) Are they such...

      You do understand that neither Rolls nor their intended customer really cares one whit that some people see a resemblance to some plebeian car that I can afford, right?

      As is so often the case, it's a little of both. The Crosstour isn't very space efficient and the Fit is exceptionally space efficient. :beer:
