Re: Just a couple of cars I saw lately

Why are fuel economy gauges so hard to get exact? I have one in Malcolm which can sometimes be right on the nipple, while other times over/under-estimating mileage.

Re: The beast has come...

I dig the loud red interior even as the fox body Mustang has never done it for me as far as the exterior.

Re: Just a couple of cars I saw lately

A couple days ago I saw a white Maserati something or other (might have been an 08ish Quattroporte) tooling around the St. Paul suburbs. The styling in person makes me wretch.

Re: potownrob's new (to him) whip

I'm curious if a manual could make Datsun interesting. Senta SE-R?

Several years ago I drove a friend's Sentra. Methinks Singer had input into its design.

Wouldn't it be easier to hire somebody to hack off an extraneous leg?

I saw it and figured you were being a tease. I was going to ask if you had a new knob to jiggle as I can't imagine you'd go the sewing machine route.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I saw one the most recent Caprice cars up close today. Reminded me of an anonymous anycar from car insurance adverts.
