    Like the PT Cruiser, this was a victim of the rapid rise and fall of cutesy retro cars at the beginning of the millennium. At some point people realized that they were awful cars with derivative...

    Good stuff, Duell!

    I must concede to Kitdy at this point that this car looks a lot less like an Oldsmobile than other Maseratis.

    Odd proportions, but it's otherwise promising.

    I do like the restraint, if a 400hp sportscar could ever be said to posses that, both in physical design and in performance specifications. In a...

    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.

    This makes sense: disillusioned with Mopar after Plymouth was axed in '01, the off-brand American car refugee immediately seeks out Mercury. A decade later, Mercury too was euthanized and Kitdy was...

    It covers all their bases: trucks, vee-eight modors, and loopy Ontarians.

    I have little idea what Ford sells here beyond the Mustang and F-Series... Maybe the aforementioned Mercury Sable.

    Kitdy had a red Dino at some point, I hear... I believe it was his first car full stop.

    Despite being some sort of lunatic Latin, this guy gets it! There is, however, a part of me that would love to drive a manualized CVT where the ratios are selected by a knob. It would be fun for,...

    I agree entirely: I would argue that my home is a more-effective means of transportation than just about any car made by a "tech" company.

    I played around a but with the configurator and Ferrari has a really fantastic range of colors for the Rome. Too bad they'll all be red.

    I feel old; the T50 feels like a slight rehash of the F1 and yet I love it. My tastes shouldn't be so retrograde before my thirtieth year. Perhaps the styling is unduly affecting my verdict. Despite...

    We won't get it, but the Honda e looks great. I think it's probably the best interior that I've seen in years.

    Yes, but think: you can play a nice metagame of GT2 inside. Driving a Daihatsu Move CX against similarly-weak opponents around a track, while your Sony inches automatically through a traffic jam.

    I think the things around it (struts, springs, suspension arms) look very nice, but the engine itself is not great. It seems eventually Horacio realized that Merc wasn't going to do anything in this...

    It's kind of pathetic that Honda's four cylinder looks so much better than Merc's twelve. Even in the Zonda, and especially in the S, it is the one of the most formless and flaccid presentations that...

    That's just a VIN. The "F76080" at the end is more-analogous to an old fashioned chassis number.

    I've had it three or four years for daily-driving duty. The Supra only comes out for more special occasions. There is also a Saab, but we don't talk about that.

    I was forced to use manual mode in a Mini Countryman I had as a rental. I must say that I resented doing this. This was a number of years ago, so the MINI had first-generation EPAS. BMW seems to have...
