Yeah, I've never thought about resale value, I usually keep cars long enough that it's a moot point..

All of my cars seem to leave on a trailer...collector cars to another collector, daily drivers to the scrap metal yard.

MINI S left on a trailer immobile to a guy going to build it into a more serious autocross car.

Big Chevy looks good in this music video

 

You kind of have to scroll through to see it...

Attractive Asian females for Dfelt....check.

All-new 7.3L gas V8 available!  2020 F-Series Super Duty!

Now this I do not get, if you need the capability of a Super Duty, then Diesel is really the only common sense way to go.  Gas is so inefficient, cool big block motor though. Thank you for posting, it is interesting to see Ford do this.

Not being a heavy duty truck customer, I do wonder for what use cases one would buy the gas engine over the diesel...unless they just don't like diesels.

Cost usually.  Going with the Powerstroke over the 6.2 liter is a $10k upgrade.  I can't find the config with the V10.

Some cool reads I found today:

Lowrider culture in Japan:

https://jalopnik.com/welcome-to-the-wild-world-of-tokyos-underground-lowride-1826096379

Check out the amazing amount of Land Yachts, mostly GM but some very cool stuff that shows up in the Shibuya district.

Very Cool read with plenty of pictures of Snowmobile Model T's.

Sad because I have a sudden limit on my ability to react to comments at Cheers & Gears.  My reactions convey deep meaning.  I am not a wordy guy, I like to keep things short and to the point, so this development is somewhat of a catastrophe.

Fascinating that so many of those stock framed/bodied cars were shredded, the driver's drove in a helmet & a button-up or t-shirt (no other safety gear at ALL), yet the majority walked away.

Also pretty incredible these were all factory production blocks/transmissions/axles, doing 180 MPH.

He is the amazing "Blu....you can't get any better than that!

If it came down to picking loyalty to C and G or Loyalty to 'blu...I would choose Loyalty to blu.

And the thing is...I don't want to live in an echo chamber. I want to be around people who disagree with me. Because I want to know when I am wrong (which is frequent). I love being wrong...because then I can change my mind and have a better understanding.
