    Now call me uncultured, but the Hyundai Kona is the coolest ride of 2019 so far. I mean, five star euro encap? Check. Just past 3000 pounds? Check. 175 Horse gamma motor? Check. Quirky, creative looks? Mc-Triple check. I feel like crossovers are growing on me and I don't know if I like it or not. Still don't like the new Blazer, screw that noise. It'd be cool if it actually looked like an old K-5 (Big ol' box, like the new bronco) and only had AWD. Also a V-8 of some kind (Maybe a diesel?) would be nice.

    Personally I think the LC500 is a little bit cooler. Even though its a bit of an odd looking car, I do really dig it.


    I think the following get honourable mentions


    I'm not sure if the A110 should be classed as cool or not. I think its a great looking car, and what it stands for is certainly very cool. But I don't know if people in the street would look at one and think its cool. But, if you are trying to impress car people, its very cool.

    Personally I really hope they depreciate heavily.

    Just had a look, in the UK they are starting at £48k for a manufacturer approved model with 20k miles (with a 1yr Lexus Warranty). Not too bad I guess. Assuming its a base model, that's at least 1/3 off the price after 2 years. Nothing like loosing £25k over 2 years of ownership I guess :eek:

    The LC500’s also probably pretty reliable if Lexus’ badge says anything for it. I saw it at an autoshow when it was new and I loved the way it looked.

    Will be a used car mega bargain in a few years.

    After the Bronco, the Mach E is another one I've been waiting for its reveal.

    I am hoping Ford won't make the same mistake Mitsubishi made with the Eclipse Cross, where they they took a sports car and turned it into something it's not. I am perfectly fine with it being completely separate from the Mustang.

    I continue to dream about an engine swap for my Grand Cherokee. 206k miles, 7.9mpg, and genuinely dangerously bad throttle response; I think it's fair to want an upgrade. It's got the 4.7L and Quadra-drive II; a 5 second google seach leads me to believe that a 5.7L will bolt up to everything relatively easily. The problem is the only engine swaps I've done are on speedboats and go-karts, which aren't exactly the same league as a hemi swap... Although a hemi speedboat does sound fun.

    Modern SUVs are less sporty and off-roady. More and more of them use unibody that has a high CoG than body-on-frame. And more of them using energy-inefficient open differentials rather than limited-slip or locking differentials. I doubt this vehicle has a good 4WD drivetrain.

    Fucking deer ran out in the middle of the road

    As for more info, that’s a ditch that drains a well. It’s extremely muddy, and it was extremely stuck.

    Yikes! That's why they invented winches ;) Hope you're doing okay, and less importantly, hope the 4x4's okay.

    Has anyone here driven a Dacia 1300 or any variant thereof? What was it like? I'm thinking of someday importing one for an electric conversion. The reason I don't want to just get a Renault 12 is because only Dacia made a 2-door.

    Edit: never mind, it's a pile of junk

    2005. Doesn't really matter though, this will be staying a dream for the forseeable future.
