#642019 The post rating system

Posted by Satty on 09 December 2010 - 07:16 AM

I don't like it. It's a way for immature cowards to hit and run with no consequence. This is a DISCUSSION forum.

No it isn't. Have you not been paying attention the last couple of years? It's a haven for people to bitch and moan about how not every car is a hardtop, or that every car isn't a coupe, or that every car isn't a Hyundai Sonata Turbo, or that Greenpeace is coming out at night and taking away trucks or some other such nonsense. That's not discussion, its whining.

#735989 Biggest one day stock drop due to auto Fire in Seattle Suburb

Posted by Lord_Tourettes on 02 October 2013 - 10:56 PM

Leaving one to wonder just how easy is it for these electric auto's to catch on fire and possibly kill someone.


That's cute. Because vehicles carrying a payload of highly flammable fluids never catch fire.


Those last two links are especially incredible when you consider that they are related to electrical problems. In a GASOLINE powered vehicle you say? Clearly this is witchcraft and we should go back to horse drawn carriages.

i am truly sorry that you lost a car that you really enjoyed and was actually a good car. but at the same time i find it hard to be sympathetic. you and me are the same age. ive been driving since i was 16 owned a car since i was 18 from 16 to 21(in 2 months) i have owned 1 car. from what i understand you have owned 7 or 8 cars? this sounds like poor choices were made along the way. ones that could have been fixed. i went into college right out of high school and tried to ensure my future before spending big on big deal cars. you and me cant be picky about the car we get. listen to Pervez try and find some classes try to set a future for yourself before you spend money you don't have. the amazing thing about classes is after you finish a couple you can start doing an internship, and internships are the doorways into jobs, jobs = money, and money = nice things. just trying to help.

#672848 Buick Regal Wagon Is Not Happening

Posted by Camino LS6 on 09 September 2011 - 04:59 PM

CUVs are all awful, just terrible-looking things - all of them. And, I think this wagon would have sold pretty well. But that isn't why I called this decision a mistake.

It's a mistake because the car is in production and all of the parts to make it happen here are in production. Anytime an opportunity like that exists, the bodystyle should be offered - even if on a limited basis. GM has been toying with the idea of creating families of cars (multiple bodystyles) on a single named model, and that's a great strategy. Every opportunity to re-introduce this concept should be taken to get folks used to it again. This approach is what made GM so successful in the past, and it will work again - if they commit to it.

So, boo to this decision.

Now, doing the math, when I add it all up... and knowing that every other car in the class is gunning for the Fiesta, I think maybe you should have stayed in school.


Now, that was below the belt.

If you have to get crude, please get the f@#k out of the thread. Thanks.

Now, back on topic- I have to say that this has the be the cleanest version of the "sonata" style that I have seen. It does offer much more than the current car.

Let's just see if they do the price bump that they have done with the last two cars. Interestingly though, I think they could get it too....

#579072 Man Destroys Home With Bulldozer

Posted by Drew Dowdell on 21 February 2010 - 08:56 AM

This guy is a common criminal.

I would argue that the bank is the criminal here. The man destroyed his own property. It's crazy, but it's not illegal. The bank doesn't own it (yet).

The man owed $160k to the bank. The bank received $170k offer for the property. The bank got greedy and said no since they felt they could probably sell a $350k house for $250k and make $90k profit on it. THE BANK SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO FORECLOSE ON THE PROPERTY JUST BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY CAN MAKE A PROFIT ON IT. In fact, I think the bank should probably be put under investigation and ALL of it's foreclosure proceedings put on hold.

I've read story after story of people having foreclosure proceedings started against them despite their willingness and renewed ability to pay or that they've found a buyer who would pay off the loan. I've heard of banks foreclosing on the wrong house. There was a couple in Florida who got foreclosed on..... who paid for their house in cash. Never even HAD a mortgage. The bank sent someone to their house who cleaned out all their stuff, hauled it away, and then bolted the doors.

The banks deserve ZERO benefit of the doubt here.

This guy may be crazy... but at least he's thinking. The banks are mindless zombies.

#735992 Biggest one day stock drop due to auto Fire in Seattle Suburb

Posted by FAPTurbo on 02 October 2013 - 11:17 PM

Shares in Dfelt's Natural Gas business hit negative 9001 dollars this trading day when people realized that fossil fuels are explosive, dangerous and can ignite rapidly. 


Washington State Police Captain, F. Ng Obvious told reporters that "fossil fuels are face-meltingly dangerous and detonation can occur if vehicles are involved in accidents."


It became the talk of the office at the Shittyattle Turds newspaper as to whether vehicles should be allowed to be fuelled by highly compressed, explosive gas. Editors agreed that responsible use, rigorous NHTSA testing and safe driving will minimize the risk of death via fiery pit of doom.


Critics on automotive website Hurrs & Durrs, were less kind.


"OMGZ NATURAL GAS ABORTS BABIES WE NEED TO GO BACK TO STANLEY STEAMERS" said one poster. The Shittyattle Turds tried contacting C&G for further comment but the website crashed and was not up and running in time for this article's print.

#663235 Some bad news on the El Camino

Posted by SAmadei on 17 May 2011 - 11:47 PM

At a time when the new Colorado is coming out, where is the need for an El Camino? Seriously, there is a reason GM ditched the El Camino and Caballero in 1987: most likely that the compact pickups were (and are) simply more profitable. :smilewide:

The compact pickups have sold more, but have had serious profitability issues. The number 1 reason the El Camino and Caballero disappeared after 1988 was because of the G-body demise. There was no easy platform for it to move to... but now EVERY El Camino fan knows (due to the internet) that GM builds Utes galore in Australia.

In any case, why can't you have both? I don't think anyone is suggesting that the El Camino replace the Colorado. The Ute is already being built... and can be federalized easily as a Chevy... bring it back and kick some ass. GM could have done this for over a decade, but has instead screwed around with stuff like the SSR... then does a bait and switch on the G8ST. GM is psychotic. Just like anything else, GM is waiting until the 11th hour to put out the best (GNX, Fiero, Typhoon, Syclone, Impala SS, GTO, G8)... what is GM waiting to bring the Ute over for? The outlawing of V8s?

GM has some of the best RWD cars being made and will not bring them to the good people of the US.
