Some of the detailing on it does look more luxury than utilitarian, but I'm still not totally sure that's what this is going to be. Mercedes sells a lot of non-luxury cars outside North America, this could be one of those. »
I agree that the Dale was a better arrangement, much more like a conventional car. Except for the whole being totally fake part. Elio does have some running prototypes, so I guess we can give them that.
GM came so, so, so close to achiving parity with the '08-'12 Malibu. It maybe wasn't quite up to Camcord standards in all respects, but it was really, really close, to the extent that it wouldn't matter for most people. Then, they really bungled the follow-on.
I can't bring myself to totally hate Qingdao Soar Automobile's Rolls-Royce Phantom V style wedding cars. I know they're just FWD Brilliance BS6s underneath, but they do look pretty good. »
I've never been in this situation, but I sort of came close. I was moving to a new area and was looking to rent, not buy, but I found a house that was unbelievably perfect - amazing area, amazing price, and I had my checkbook out and was ready to give them a deposit. Then, I scanned the living room and noticed that… »
The situation is totally understandable. If anyone with the code can unlock the door from the outside, then a hijacker could take a flight attendant by box cutter point and force her to open it. There has to be a way for the captain to lock everyone out in a serious emergency, or the whole system becomes worthless. »
Lt. Benito Gonzalez Jr., former head of the Camden County Police narcotics unit, has plead guilty to lewdness, in relation to an incident in May of 2014, when he was caught on a surveillance camera showing himself some leadership in a Cherry Hill Starbucks. Apparently, employees at the Starbucks posted a still frame… »
Clarkson can head to Macau and go on a 4-week bender, followed by some time in Thailand, then completely disappear for a few months, then turn up at ITV with Andy Wilman and a creative new show idea. »
Of course, it doesn't have catapults or arrester wires and would need considerable refitting to be able to handle anything other than STOVL fixed wing aircraft, which Japan hasn't expressed any interest in acquiring. »
On Ewan's Beetle - is it possible that he preferred the look of the ZA lights, or wanted to look different, and swapped them in? »
I think most of them can be machine washable in a pinch, but its probably best if you just dry clean. »
Chrysler used to have separate dealer channels. Selling a Chrysler Aspen gave Chrysler-Jeep dealers a bigger SUV to sell that wasn't a Jeep. FCA US has increasingly moved to consolidated Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram-Fiat showrooms, so the Dodge Durango is sold off the exact same sales floor as Chryslers. There's less… »
Because we don't live in a fabulously wealthy oil state that has more money than citizens to spend it on.
Americans buy 10,000 Smart ForTwos a year, I fail to see why Honda can't sell at least that many of these roadsters. It's a far more appealing car, and don't give me the sports car vs. regular car practicality argument, because that doesn't exist for the Smart. »
Other than the hair, the rest of the sketch seems pretty decent - far more so than that Unabomber one with the hood and white afro.
I've only owned one B-Body (technically a D-Body, which was the slightly longer wheelbase version used by Buick and Cadillac), and I didn't do any modifications to it, but I'll give you some general takeaways from the ownership experience, if that helps any. »
Veterans groups in the US sometimes sell them around Veterans Day and Memorial Day too, but they just aren't anywhere near as common here. »
