      I did not care when people called each and every cabriolet i've owned a bitch basket. Yeah, that's right. My passengers were usually females, not that that is important.

      I've driven many different types of vehicles but there is just something so quirky about these. And absolute hoot to drive. As a matter of fact, this car is indeed like a Beetle in the way that it absolutely puts a smile on your face when you're driving it or see one.

      (sigh) GM EV1. One of the few times GM was ahead of its time, and they had to kill it

      I had one of these in high school.


      Replaced with a Conquest.


      And what I drive now.


      Unfortunately, Motorweek wasn't around when my other cars were made.

      These are great, I could watch these all day.

      I remember when 1 HP/L was a big deal even for a turbo. Like in 1992 when the Dodge Daytona IROC had a 224hp 2.2L Turbo.

      It was a 40% increase from the NA engine.

      Patiently awaiting the official Retro Review of the turbo sprint.


      I think I've told this story before...I've witnessed a turbo sprint exactly like Motorweek's test car driving inside the hallways of a high school during class time amongst the students and lockers. In 2014, no less.

      I'd bookmarked their review of the Range Rover Classic, but it's gone.

      Found the Defender 90 though
