    That's a LaForza! They're rare as hen's teeth. So yeah, low-volume, boutique, 1980s Italian SUV; janky is about right. I think all the ones that came here had Ford V8s; maybe a 302 or 351.

    I think it was 180 cents du nord for 87 last time I was in Montreal in September; maybe 20c more for the 91 that my Infiniti Q50 demanded. The Canadian dollar is weak right now and Canada is a...

    Was this when pickups jumped the shark and went from working vehicles to "cowboy Cadillacs"? I think its aerodynamic car-ness and the branching of the phylogenetic tree away from the so-called Super...

    I got excited thinking that I saw a Nissan Leopard (the early one) in Western Massachusetts of all places... Turns out it was a Dodge Mirada; a very interesting and unexpected doppelganger.

    Yeah, I went to the LA show this year and it was a pretty pathetic affair... Even compared to the very lackluster NYIAS I went to in '19. Even just two years before that, NY seemed to have a decent...

    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 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...
