  2. Tesla Unveils Their Electric Semi Truck

    Duramax or Cummins is fine.
  3. Cool, would look great in a regular cab shortie.

    While you're up there pulsating in skinny jeans and experiencing extreme shrinkage I'm down here in a tropical depression. Is Spring here yet?
  5. Kia News: 2018 Kia Stinger to Begin At $32,800, GT At $39,200

    Agreed. It's almost Mercedes-like.
  6. Tesla Unveils Their Electric Semi Truck

    Could just as easily be a Duramax or a Cummins tooo if the village is averse to Powerjokes

    Kia cannot give the K900 away- it's a flop. September US sales : 31. It's a $50K Kia. Yeah.

    Maybe, maybe not we don’t know too much about long term reliably of the Hyundai twin turbo V6, but Kia scores well in reliability ratings. The Kia will depreciate twice as fast as a BMW though, a five year old 3-Series will probably sell for $10,000 more than a five year old Stinger. Case in point, a 2015 Kia K900 V8 was $59,000 new, they sell certified used for $27,000 now, that is a hell of a drop.

    Unlike the BMW and the Alfa this thing will self propel after the warranty expires without expensive life support.

    I dont know how in the hell we do it! Regina, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary...even Quebec City. I dont know how these folk do it! Montreal does not have it as bad as those cities... The State Minnesota almost gets that cold too, right? I think the lyrics to this song is how we do it! Hey ho, let's go! hey ho, let's go! Hey ho, let's go! hey ho, let's go! They're forming in straight line They're going through a tight wind The kids are losing their minds The blitzkrieg bop They're piling in the back seat They're generating steam heat Pulsating to the back beat The blitzkrieg bop Body heat...baby! Body heat! I know that I helped plenty of ski bunnies keep warm many a frozen night. I now want to play the song, because I like pulsating to that back beat. So...hey ho...LETS GO!

    If the Magnum had feelings I am sure the auto was cross with him when he sold it. My wife's family had an AMC hornet when she was a kid...in families and car companies there are parts of the past that really belong in the closet. I love the aspirations of the Korean companies. A real part of me is excited as an enthusiast here.
  12. Tesla Unveils Their Electric Semi Truck

    Yes I hate Ford...but true story I was riding in a Ford tow truck once that broke down. If Ford ever builds a Pure EV I will honestly buy Bill the biggest steak and the Coldest beer in Lancaster Pennsylvania so we can sit there all night and trash talk that thing. That would just be epic. Yes...there is enough beer to make fat chicks look hot. No, there is not enough beer to make me want a Ford.
  13. Drove Both American and German take on RSes

    The gentleman in my avatar pic in front of me test drove one straight off of the semi that delivered it. It blew a head gasket on the test drive. Gorgeous blue RS in my neighborhood, I parked next to it at the polling place when I voted. But given that kind of coin for a hot hatch I would own a Golf R so fast it would make your head spin. I would upvote this by ten thousand if I could. And I would so buy a used 911 or an F type as a pricey fun car.
  14. Tesla Unveils Their Electric Semi Truck

    Yeah...I agree with the circles the problem quote. Speak for yourself when you say Ford and Trusted in the same sentence. I comprehended no effing Ford in my driveway. My son bought one to resell and I made him park it on the street...
  15. Tesla Unveils Their Electric Semi Truck

    Hmm...as far as tow trucks, I'm more used to seeing International rollbacks than Fords....and unfortunately, got to ride in them more than once over the last decade..
  16. Tesla Unveils Their Electric Semi Truck

    Now why would you think that? Why would it be a Ford Diesel tow truck towing a Tesla?

  17. Kia News: 2018 Kia Stinger to Begin At $32,800, GT At $39,200

    Yeah..tired.
  18. Kia News: 2018 Kia Stinger to Begin At $32,800, GT At $39,200

    I know you meant 'Nash & Hudson'.
  19. Kia News: 2018 Kia Stinger to Begin At $32,800, GT At $39,200

    Yep, AMC was created by the merger of Nash and Hudson. As far as Dodge compacts, it's too bad Dodge wasn't able to see success w/ the Dart..not sure what the issue there was..
  20. Kia News: 2018 Kia Stinger to Begin At $32,800, GT At $39,200

    I am glad Kia made a rear drive car, I wish there were more of them out there. But imagine Chevy trying to sell a sedan smaller than the Malibu for $40-50k, when they tried a full size car with a V8 for $45k that didn't work. The Stinger is a better deal than the Regal, but there are Camaro, Mustang, Challenger, Charger, 300 for less money. I think if they priced it like and targeted Mustang and Camaro (performance with a back seat and awd) then Kia could get a lot of sales. If they try to be a value play to the Germans it won't work.
  21. Kia News: 2018 Kia Stinger to Begin At $32,800, GT At $39,200

    "Stinger" reminds me of "Super Bee", so yeah, there is that aspect... and I believe Kia is trading on American nostalgia with the name they chose. Would love to see a Dodge Hornet compact with a turbo 4... such a natural family name... Hudson Hornet begat the AMC Hornet (wasn't there a family line there?) and AMC was absorbed by Chrysler... hence the once and future Dodge Hornet...
  22. Sitting at a red light this morning on the way to work, a 5.0 drove by and made its presence known. And I was thinking how the V8 engine was in EVERYTHING back in the good days, and the manufacturers weren't afraid to let them sing. Sure, there was Cadillac with their swift, powerful silence, and Ford for years advertised their LTD as "quieter than a Rolls-Royce", but other than that... we had the '60 Buick in Balthy's endurance film... man that thing's a beauty as it annihilates that track... it just SMASHES those banks flat as a pancake!
  23. Kia News: 2018 Kia Stinger to Begin At $32,800, GT At $39,200

    Yes! Yes! Most definitely does the name Stinger belong to a Mopar from the 1960s!
  24. Drove Both American and German take on RSes

    A friend of a friend whispered that the high-powered Foci are eating head gaskets.
  25. My wife's 1.6 liter ecoboosted Fusion is almost as quiet as a mouse. Yes...its surprising why that is. For a ~3500 pound sedan powered by a measly 1.6 liter with an anemic (for its weight) 180 horsepower or so and not that much more torque numbers as horsepower numbers. Its good. And under full throttle...it aint buzzy either. I wouldnt call it throaty but it aint buzzy like how 4 cylinders use to sound like a decade ago. Especially domestic 4 cylinders. I mean...some Japanese 4 cylinders under full throttle do sound good! I want my muscle machines to be loud. I want the world to hear them! Yes, inside the car too. That philosophy goes with the fact that I also want my muscle machines to have loud and bright exterior colours. I want my luxury sedans to be quiet like a library. That is the distinction that I wanna make for what kind of loudness I prefer for my cars. As for EVs... I know how much noise induction motors make. If Im buying one, or converting an existing ICE car into one...then I have already accepted that what I am about to drive wont got a rumble to it! But then again...the last time I owned a V8 was in the mid 1990s. It was a tired V8 at that. In that time, Ive bought lame V6s, supercharged V6s, little 4 cylinders...I think its too damned late for me to lament the loss of the growl of a V8...
