    These "Rope Drive" Tempests are part of my favorite cohort of GM compacts; their stablemates include the (in)famous Corvair (though I prefer the second generation), the later-turbocharged Olds F-85...

    That ad in the final post is fantastic! Back when "wing" mirrors were actually on the wings (fenders)! It's interesting how enthusiastically the Japanese took to them; I'd imagine the primary...

    I'd be curious about people's EV experiences as well. As a stupid car person on the internet, it still doesn't quite sit right with me when existing nameplates get rehashed for EVs that bear no...

    I don't know where to put this, so it'll have to go in this long-dead repository of Antipodean scuttlebutt.

    It occurred to me that my cylinder count and valve count are out-of-whack:

    I noticed that we only have the A33 Nissan Cefiro (under the nom-de-guerre of the USDM Infiniti I30) in the Hideout. Does anyone have any pictures of the much-better-looking, in my opinion, A31...

    I think I prefer the T.33 to the T.50, which was the last car launched about which I was really excited. Perhaps some 911 GTS/GT3 analogy is warranted. The T.50's more-modern styling integrates a...

    I had always assumed that "Bellell" was a typo when people meant to reference the "Bellett". Here I am expanding my brain and learning that they were, in fact, two separate cars!

    These sort of deep cuts are why we love you, MoS. This is fantastic! Cop wheels, gasoline heater (robbed from a Corvair, no doubt), two tons, and a roaring 20 hp of six-volt power! What a thing
