    You wouldn't happen to have any more pictures of the second generation, would you MoS? It's awfully cold in my garage, so I don't see mine nearly enough.

    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

    Some quick googling confirms that it was not, in fact, a kei car; the engine displaced 2,800 cc. I suspect that the hieroglyphs on air cleaner (HX for water-to-air charge cooling would be my guess if...

    The name "patrician" suits Packard so well; they have that old-money feel to me. As the world (the American motor industry) became pastel two-tones, chrome, and fins Packard had the grace to quietly...

    Incredible: an opinion I held as a teenager still stands up!

    MoS, do you have any pictures of the Silver Arrow concept upon which the Riv was based?

    As far as cab-forward supercars go, I think this is far better looking that Paganis and Koeniggsegg. Cool stuff Duell! I also dig the 928-style headlights.

    My indifference to the 911 aside, I tend to really like Singers. They're usually tasteful(ish) and obviously well-thought-out. This thing though seems like a half-assed attempt to pander to the...

    I can't imagine the rumbleseat in a T-bird was any more dangerous that the rear-facing wagon seats that most kids were probably thrown in at the time. Fewer exhaust fumes in the 'bird, and the...

    This is what happens when you spend one billion Zimbabwean dollars on a Nissan.

    At present exchange rates, this is worth almost one billion Zimbabwean dollars on the nose.

    I am always surprised that these were sold with Hemis; engine aside, they don't seem to tick any of the boxes of an erstwhile muscle-car buyer. As I mentioned above, I really don't like this design,...

    Or the EcoSport...



    Yeah the Euro lineup is enviably well balanced. I'd say we actually had a better lineup than you folks a few years ago, just in the breadth of choice, but not no more.
