    Are you saying that global warming doesn't exist?
    Because that's dumb.
    People just use cars as a scapegoat.

    Willful ignorance is fashionable now, I suppose. Global warming has been proven time and time again to be very much a real thing, and a great deal of it is caused by man.

    Cars, however, account for a tiny, tiny percentage of harmful emissions. We push so many dumb regulations into the automotive market, only to forget about the millions of factories, powerplants etc. burning fossil fuel by the boat load to power our supposedly eco-friendly electric and hybrid cars.

    Gaskings is pretty annoying, but meh. The only popular car guy I can really say is actually an asshole is the guy from Vehicle Virgins.
    Car Throttle has been putting out some quality content lately IMO, they're past the "buzzfeed" stage :p

    Sorry but this video was pretty fucking stupid
    And one problem I have is that there are like 2 car reviewers that review cars for Daily driving
    Doug DeMuro and RegularCars (there are probably more but those two I can name off the top of my head) now I have a Love/Hate Relationship with RegularCars and Doug DeMuro is kind of boring

    Got to agree that video was dumb as hell. Most of those cars look ugly as sin with pop-ups, especially the 458.
    Funnily enough i'm watching Doug right now :p RegularCars is somewhat polarizing because of his style of video. Some people think he comes off as too pretentious, though I think he's proven himself to be quite humble, his videos with Bruce Henn show that the most as he's face to face with a man who has 10 times the experience and knowledge of cars he has :)

    Just my opinion.
    People who complain about global warming (one specific person, can't remember his name)go around flying his private planes that emit tons of greenhouse gasses, and multimillionare mansionS that need tons of electricity to run.
    I don't want an argument about this, OK?

    i remember some f*ckboi had evolved into a f*ckman and had bought himself a 2006 pontiac gto, and he decided to take it to a car meet, along with his horribly tan-lined dad-bod, overweight wife, and screaming delinquent kids who kept running around throwing water balloons and touching the cars. anyway, the gto was shit. it wasnt even a classic. you know the rule. 25+ years makes it a classic. there was a 1992 saturn there that looked better. it had obviously taken a beating, due to the asshole driving it, and it had the messiest paint job ever. So when the guy finally leaves, he decides to ROAR down the road. it didnt even sound good and he almost went into a pole. then he came back again, and the third time, he almost hit a car head on. he sucked and i never hope i have to go through the torture that would be meeting him again.
