      2017 Toyota Tacoma. The 3rd Gen is such a sorry excuse for a truck that I don't even want to waste my finger energy typing it all out. The 3.5 Atkinson V6 is decently suited to the Camry but...

      Tesla is peak new money. It's like Post-New Money. :thumbdown:

      Unbelievably gnarly carnage post-fire. It's a true miracle everyone managed to escape a (seemingly) intact plane before the flames really got going.

      Looks like all the armchair assessments in...

      Yes, I would road trip in a 944 turbo. I did 30ish states in an '84 3.2 Carrera and the 944 is a more modern platform overall.

      I'm going to step in and advocate for the south. This is a genuine...

      I'm the same way. This thread sent me down a rabbit hole last night that ended with me looking at 2015 Cayenne diesels. It's the better version of the Touareg and they also made more of them.

      I really wish they weren't such maintenance nightmares. I loved the "high end" VW products of that era... T1, Phaeton, W8, etc. I guess I'm no different from most Vortexers in that regard, but now...

      I did it in my Land Cruiser on E-rated BFGoodrich KOs (pre- KO2 :eek: ) and had no issues. It's deceptively road-esque, but you definitely want serious off-road tires.

      I didn't know you had a Type R in the garage along with the GX..! That's my dream two car lineup, looks aside. :eek:

      QFT. But he has to care about impressing the overland bros at REI.

      I have a recurring fantasy of doing a YOLO road trip in a cheap used Prius. Still pile the dog and a bike or two inside and just travel around for crazy cheap. I always envision 50 mpg and zero cares...

      That's GIFs of video footage from last night. People heard the pops from one direction and ran the other. Times Square is packed full of people pretty much 24/7. This footage explains why so many...

      ^^ just watched that Youtube video.

      1) That antilag sounds TERRIBLE. No part of me as a "car guy" thinks that sounds good.

      2) The guys popping off the antilag were being idiots. As soon as...

      Since this thread got necro-bumped by the road trip thread, I am now in a telecomm rabbit hole.

      Then I saw you mention Spencer Harding and wondered if it was the same Spencer Harding I knew from...

      Yup. If they would put some of the ATS/Camaro DNA into the Colorado, they'd be printing money. It's already a better truck than the other mid-size options. What if they put an LS in it and kept it...

      Getting 12 more MPG, quieter, dramatically better handling, and being able to do 85% of the off-road stuff I do sounds like a tempting tradeoff many days. I'd have to get the XT; I spend a lot of...

      GX feels like a rocket ship compared to 4Runner. Way more torque in way better places, will sit at a given cruising speed with the tach needle about two ticks off idle.

      I traded my 3.5 Taco for a 4.0 4Runner after 2 months of ownership. You're maybe the first person I've ever seen say this. :screwy:
