sunday before was an 83 chevette and a 95 probe.

tues before that was an 85 ferrari 400i

sunday the 10th was a 66 stang

the 9th was a 72 datsun 620 RWD (my computer doesn't recognize datsun)

Datsun 260Z being driven by a dyslexic person?

'83 Chevette - I bet that's not it's first tow! That was the original Fred Flintstone car - the driver's floor area was the first place to rust through.

'66 stang - You can get a new body for those now, blessed by Ford. That would be a fun project if you had a case of Kroil.

There was a 620. That was the model designation on their little pickup before they became Nissan.

Abarth 124 Spider

The hotter version of the Fiat 124 Spider premiered in Geneva today, boasting the same 1.4-liter turbocharged chainsaw engine found in the Fiat 500 Abarth, but in this app, it’s rated at 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.

The Abarth 124 also features a mechanical limited-slip differential along with 50/50 weight balance. It weighs in at just 2,337 pounds, says Fiat, and comes with either a six-speed manual or the Sequenziale Sportivo automatic 'box with paddle shifters. A sport mode will dial things up a bit more.

The Abarth 124 Spider has a double-wishbone suspension in front with a five-link setup in the rear. Fiat says it’s tuned for “greater braking and cornering stability.” Bilstein dampers undoubtedly help, and Brembo stepped up with the brakes.

saw a shiny white car in the dusk sunday night while walking 1.5miles home. unfortunately it had BRIGHT headlights and BRIGHT tail lights so i can't see any sort of emblem/make/model. but it wasn't a cheap normal car...it was an expensive shiny.

The headlights on the outgoing model look better. This busy looks like a 2/5 Equinox. :cry:

I've never been a fan of Gum styling, but lately they've been putting out vehicles I can stomach. Not all, but the new Impala and Malibu look good.

Prime Mover: Toyota Maxes Out Tech and Style in the World's Best-Selling Hybrid to Create the 2017 Prius Prime
Toyota used to offer a plug-in hybrid version of the Prius that had an EV range of 11 miles. But due to poor sales, the company dropped the model. However, the plug-in is getting a second chance at life and now has a new name. Called the Prius Prime, it features a larger 8.8 kWh battery pack that doubles the pure EV driving range to 22-miles. Toyota estimates that with the battery fully charged it will get 120 MPGe, which would be the highest rating of any plug-in hybrid. To set it apart from the Prius, the front end of the Prime has been completely reworked and features headlights similar to the Mirai. The rear fascia and taillights are also significantly changed. The last major difference is an available 11.6-inch touchscreen that dominates the center stack. Look for the Prius Prime to start rolling into dealer showrooms in late fall.
