      I still love your 986, Obin. Glad to see you still enjoying it!

      I didn't realize deliveries had already started. Reading the Mustang6g forums has been interesting.

      Even the base V6 apparently has a 'track only' (sure) timer for 0-30, 0-60, 0-100. This is an...

      Sealed beams better looking than the '98-02? Seriously?

      Goddamn impact bumper regulations ;)

      Looking forward to this thread as it goes along!

      As a dealer accessory (offered by Mazda), I'm pretty sure you could get them on a Miata as late as the 2005 model. Z3 had them as well, I recall. "Factory" might be a '97ish Tbird or Cougar,...

      The economies of scale and price reductions on EVs are exciting to watch.

      The Focus is still a simple retrofit, of course, and its battery isn't as well integrated as the Golf EV (which I think...

      If I remember this thread right, snow would drop it down on the car, it would cost $10,000, and a plastic dropcloth is a better solution.

      Without digging into exactly what he did, the dark side of air-cooleds are "bottom-end" and "top-end" rebuilds. They're labor-intensive, time-consuming and you-need-to-know-what-you're-doing to DIY,...

      I do tend to agree, but we are talking about a story that even before Back to the Future popularized the concept of backwards time travel having the potential to change the past/present/future. It's...

      I think "The Lincoln Lawyer" was just the most positive thing associated with the Lincoln brand in the last ~12-15 years.

      Parking next to someone so closely that they can't get through their driver's door is the dick move. None of the open spaces were good for the minivan, who parked after?

      Weekly cycle here, whenever their deliveries come in, usually. It's mostly Wednesday afternoon, though sometimes Tuesday afternoon or as late as Thursday afternoon.

      You're right about the objective factors. I remember the 996 (C2) test drives when they first came out showing how it was the better car in every measurable way over the last air-cooleds. ...

      B-spec has been a great success from what I've seen, and this is a great idea for a cup series. Can't argue with the entry price.

      'Newest you can afford' advice is generally applied within a given model range. You might want to buy an '87 3.2 with a G50 transmission over an '86, or in the subject's case an '02 Turbo over an...

      It's a bit of a Fox throwback, which is an interesting choice (but I guess makes sense with the success of "5.0" redux and the popularity of Foxes right now).

      They just dropped the base V6 gas Cayenne in the US & Canada in favor of the diesel, so I think it's safe to say it's a success.

      Part of that was moving the Cayenne upmarket over the Macan, of...
