This is a 2017 Corvette Grand Sport. It is sexy. All that blue is hot. But that’s not what we’re here to talk about. No let’s talk Germans. Specifically what what awesome German car you can buy for 80,000 bucks. On the used side. The 718 Cayman.
This weekend I attended the SF Auto show (AKA, the leftovers of the LA Auto show without any meaningful vehicles)
Time for new tires on the Jetta so I’m having an alignment done at the same time. Anyone know where I can find the alignment specs so I can be sure the shop has the right numbers? Our Jetta is a 2005.5 MKV so it often gets confused in computer systems with the 2005 MKIV.
In my line of work, it’s easy to become jaded. The mind will eventually get used to anything, given enough exposure. This applies to everything from noise, to speed, to narcotics. Even the irreverent Dr. Hunter S Thompson got used to his own warped reality, in which the violence and substance abuse eventually became…
Though a bit dark and deep.
You are free to make a styling-driven, more expensive, less practical version of the Golf. I’m sure you sell lots of them. It might even be interesting to drive, I mean the GTI is quite good.
Not my finest work, the parking lot was pretty gross. But it was fun to play with anyways.
With my family growing by another wang that arrives in June, I've decided to sell/trade Aces, my 1981 Celica, and get something more family friendly for the time being. I've been perusing the local List of Craig and have been drawn to VAG. Both the Passat & A6, particularly in the wagon variation. I had one as a rental…
engineering explained paired up with humble mechanic to explain the VR6, probably my favorite engine configuration ever. It's pretty good!
Throughout its history, when VAG wants something, VAG gets it.
I love when car makers do these sort of things. I've seen a good amount of videos of dealerships doing these type of torture tests and posting them on youtube. This one though really surprised me and made me cringe inside! Someone with a Tornado red MK6 GTI has no idea what it has been through.
Taken at Blacktop Nationals in Wichita tonight!
… but that might change soon.
Whaddya reckon? Real R8 V10 wheels? I don't know how to tell.
Got plenty of over time this year, so now its time to order more car parts. Any other accountants?
