      "Thousands"? I'm pretty sure it's in the hundreds of thousands. Ford has turbo motors in tons of high volume cars. Fiesta, Focus, Escape, F-150, and others. I don't know the exact take rate on...

      They ended the article with this bit of awesomeness:

      Foreigners in Afghanistan have long joked that Afghanistan is where the world’s Corollas come to die. But Afghan’s take issue with that...

      Wow that was a LONG article. It makes me want to see the US just cut the defense budget to a quarter of what it is and focus solely on defending our own borders. Let the rest of the world fend for...

      What year was the first VAG DI turbo motor? For GM, the year was 2007 and the car was the Solstice GXP, a turbocharged, DI 4-cylinder making 260hp from 2.0 liters.

      They tax out of state usage as it is. For someone who lives in Portland and drives to Washington every day, if they are buying their gas in Portland, they're paying the local gas tax even though all...

      I too would say that GM is probably going to be one of the best. It seems they were the first to figure out how to do direct injection turbo cars without carbon buildup. The "new" GM really seems...

      Do you seriously think they aren't going to do that? There's already municipalities that automatically mail you a speeding ticket if you pass between two toll booths on a toll road at an average...

      Yeah sorta. When talking about small cars, even 2-3 inches is considered a big difference. People complained about how huge the NC was, and even it was barely 2 inches longer than the original. ...

      Free trade works when the nations within the trading circle have wage parity. You get some goofy and negative side effects with things like trade with nations like China where wages are a tiny...

      I'm with you on that, but it's an uphill battle. Even in Europe where fuel prices are expensive, they aren't doing it to reduce CO2, they're doing it because the taxes are used to fund government...

      Yeah and in order to get from Germany to America, it went through the hands of some dirty Newark dock worker. :)

      Count me in the minority too. For me, it suddenly made me thing of the C4 ZR1 for some reason and I like it.

      Honestly I think it's just to drive home the point that these are not production cars and to not treat them as if they are production. The production cars may or may not look just like this, so any...

      So what I've gotten so far:

      1) Donate: Nobody will take it. I'm being told that they won't take the car because it's not worth enough.
      2) Sell to parts yard: I've only called the two nearest me...

      Junker owners: How do you junk your car?

      So I've decided to send my old 97 Escort off to the crusher. In short, everything is broken but the engine and transmission, although it no longer passes emissions and cannot be registered for the...
