    I gotta say I'm highly impressed by it. I've always kinda liked the C6 but holy hell are they just a box of plastic crap with a big-ass engine strapped to it. The C7's are really nice cruisers, too (when they aren't ripping your face off). They're seriously great cars.

    I think I'm in love.

    The new Z will not be available in Europe.

    And so the cracks begin to show...

    Not really a big deal, the fuccbois will just entirely switch to the 3-Series.

    The golden age of Hajwala. Before the Saudi government started cracking down on it(somewhat) and automotive ESC technology advanced to where it is now.

    King Al-Nadheem, the driver of the silver Accord, died in a crash in 2016. Surprise.

    There's nothing golden about it, innocent people where involved in some of these crashes.
    Good thing they've cracked down on this and now it's a rarity.

    It can be done relatively responsibly...

    Pros: the road is blocked off.

    Cons: the f***n road is blocked off!

    Not exactly car related, but close enough. Been a fast paced past month here. 2 track days and a trip down to the Tail of the Dragon in Tennessee (mostly just hit other roads in the area, less traffic). Few photos and a quick vid I threw together for one of the runs back from the overlook.

    "Will those numbskulls at GM EVER get it right?
    Chevrolet. Entry level. (Low price 3 … ‘memba that?).
    Buick. Premium (Upper middle price class OR Near luxury, depending on how far you want to go back).
    So the newest Buick Enclave looks like a first year Traverse, and the newest Buick Encore GX subcompact has a shorter wheelbase than the same platform Chevy Trailblazer.fter me:
    Mary, Mary, Mary.
    I know you are young, but you really should brush up on GM history.
    Maybe this will help.
    Repeat after me:
    Buick starts with B. Means BIG.
    Chevrolet starts with C. Means CHEAP.
    Buicks are supposed to be bigger than Chevys"

    A 1995 Polish used car price guide, courtesy of one of the nation's leading used car listing newspapers. "Benzyna" is gasoline, and 1 million PLN in 1995 is about 350 PLN or $90 USD in today's money.

    For the record, cars weren't exactly that widespread - less than half of all households had one, mainly because average salary was only about 7 million a month.

    The last time Chevrolet and Buick didn't overlap was when color TV was still a new technology.

    I just find the rage fueled hatred those guys have for GM's current management hilarious.

    I guess this is appropriate here. No blood or guts, just a compacted SUV. One of the most bizarre crashes I've ever seen.

    and thus , the WK was doomed for all of eternity to be jammed under a bridge, and have passers by look at it and go "wtf? how did that get there?"

    Yet it still doesn't look as heinous as any SUV that is compact by design.
