      Gen 1. I picked that car out of a hat because it's a 30 year old car that's not particularly rare (you can still easily find them on the east coast) and does have something of a cult following. It...

      Side topic, I wish more people of our generation would get into restoring these cars instead of just "modding". A lot of '80s cars, you can't easily get replacement rubber because it's been...

      I came pretty close to doing an OEM+ style wheel upgrade on my van the last time it needed tires. Couldn't pull the trigger on it because I was saving cash for house stuff. But Acura MDX or other...

      This chrome windshield trim model was a Limited Edition worldwide to celebrate the launch of the NC. They made 3500 of them, 750 exported to the US, dunno how many for Canada.

      That was a road racing "trunk kit" package, basically an option that existed on paper so that they could use those parts in SCCA Showroom Stock. :)

      Since we're basically naming all the factory...

      This is what I was trying to get at with my flippant comments on page one.:thumbup:

      It's not that I expect anyone with money to buy a new car in the modern era to actually want something like a...

      S1000.:thumbup: There's no way Honda would have developed a car like this exclusively for car-hating Japan in this era.

      It's a common thing for scammers to grab nice high-quality photos of cars like that from out of state dealers and post them for $3000 or thereabouts. The car photographs too good. Other than the lack...

      I have one of those. Maybe I just got a crappy one but I never found it very effective. It takes a lot of leverage to really get the jaws to bite if you use good oil filters. The cans are too strong....

      Oh, there's a $20,000 car underneath it. That makes me feel better. :P

      I just don't see why one would even bother buying this over a Jetta GLI even assuming it drives well.

      I like regular cabs because I don't think I'd ever own a pickup as a passenger vehicle, and extended/crew cabs just get so long. Anything more than regular cab/8' bed or extended cab/6.5' bed and you...

      I want this, but I think it'd never happen because:

      For Ford, it'd be too hard to differentiate it from their existing sedans. You'd have something sized like a Fusion and priced like a Taurus....

      No. The '86-'90 Escort GT pictured has a Ford 1.9 CVH with port EFI (base models had carb or TBI). These cars are loosely based on the UK Mk3 "Erika" Escort. Nothing Mazda in this car.

      I like the idea of floor liners but the cost gets me.

      For where I live I wish they still made the low-profile rubber mats for my car that cost a lot less. I have those in my van and the 1/4" deep...

      Parts with actual Pinto part numbers might not be easy to find, but the 2.3 SOHC and derivatives were used well into more recent times in Mustangs and Rangers, and Pinto/Mustang II chassis parts are...

      My kids are 4 and 7 so other than telling the boy a hundred times not to throw sand they're easy to deal with. No hauling strollers and diapers anymore. Going to Korea a year ago was still an amazing...

      The Pinto was a unibody car. This isn't a "Pinto chassis" being a fiberglass body on a ladder frame, but it uses Pinto running gear. Mustang II/Pinto front suspensions were already popular for kit...

      I still just don't understand rat rods.

      They put a monumental amount of work into it, so you can't claim that it was just rushed together and it looks that way accidentally. The rusty look is...
