This is 100% opinion, but aside from the practicality you gain with a wagon, they also just fuckin' look cool. This isn't always the case, but 90% of the time, I think the wagon looks better than its sedan counterpart. The Alfa 159 is perhaps the best example of this that I've seen. The sedan looks nice and all, but… » 2/27/15 4:21pm Friday 4:21pm

I honestly believe that one of the keys to Subaru's recent success is the fact that they've gotten so good at selling cars to people who don't give a shit about cars. People who should be driving Camrys are flocking to Subaru dealerships because they're sold on the "safety" of AWD and the touchy-feely "love" marketing… » 2/27/15 12:39pm Friday 12:39pm

Nice Price, what the hell. I've always liked these things for some reason, but given their spontaneous rustification, they're very rare around Chicago. I'd rock this one... for about a year or so, which is probably as long as it would take for it to decompose into a pile of iron oxide. » 2/23/15 8:26am 2/23/15 8:26am

I had an Audi A4 six-speed that I shifted like that all the time. Get it rolling with the clutch in first, then you could basically shift without the clutch all the way to 6th. If you pulled it out of gear right as you took your foot off the accelerator, it would slip out just fine, and if you timed it right, the… » 2/19/15 4:55pm 2/19/15 4:55pm

The guy driving the camera car does a good job of watching his mirrors after the incident. That E30 that went flying through the grass may well have ended up in the back end of his car had he not been paying attention. It amazes me sometimes how few people actually pay attention to what goes on behind them, whether on… » 2/19/15 1:51pm 2/19/15 1:51pm

When I was a younger lad, my roommate and I made a giant bong out of a shitty purple RS Akimoto intake that we took off his Prelude. It took two people to operate, and it was cumbersome as fuck, but it was a huge hit at parties. That was my personal best way to reuse a car part. » 2/09/15 11:58am 2/09/15 11:58am

It looks pretty good forward of the A Pillar, and the rear end looks pretty good, but the rest of the design is kind of a mess. Also, it looks MASSIVE. The guy driving it in the Super Bowl ad was dwarfed by the thing. It's like someone chopped 10" off the roof of a Murano. » 2/03/15 9:55am 2/03/15 9:55am
