  1. Yesterday
  2. Thanks man... I leased the Genesis... very nice car, but it wasn't me.
  3. Glad to read this experiment won't be attached to a bread and butter brand. "Hummer" does fit as an EV nom de plume.
  4. I thought I heard you say "fat chick", I was like GET HER OUT OF THERE!
  5. This is exciting, while as a Separate brand to me does not make sense compared to a Hummer package on the GMC brand.
  6. As part of General Motors' tentative agreement with the United Auto Workers, there is a planned $3 billion investment into the Detroit-Hamtramck plant to make electric trucks, SUVs, and vans. The program, called BT1 is part of a larger $7.7 billion investment in GM's plants over the next four years. The BT1 program includes an electric truck for GMC and an electric SUV for Cadillac for the 2023 model year. But before that happens, in 2021 a low volume BT1 pickup will start production under a different brand while a performance truck follows in 2022, and then an electric SUV in 2023. Rumor has it that these low volume BT1 vehicles could be sold under the Hummer brand, not used since 2010, but that decision has not been finalized. If GM did bring the Hummer brand back as an EV brand, it would have instant name brand recognition and a leg up on rival startup Rivian who has a truck due out in 2020. GM would not need to spend as much money to market the brand. The vehicles on the new BT1 platform would use a "skateboard" architecture that bundles the batteries and electric motor together. The architecture is highly flexible allowing GM to build vehicles in front, rear, or all-wheel drive configurations. View full article

  8. @balthazarThe funeral Cadillac, last picture with the picture on top is a very traditional Asian culture thing. There spirit gets a final ride to their resting place by doing this. Kinda weird but old folks and superstition.
  9. • '67 Cutlass sedan, factory A/C, given for free to my buddy. • Circa '71 Cadillac in Midas. • This gen Ramcharger used to be all over. • Flower car had a huge portrait of the deceased on the roof. Never saw that before.
  10. That C pillar also looks like a VW Arteon! Almost EXACTLY!
  11. As I stated; the definitions are somewhat amorphous, IMO.
  12. In other news. I'm going to start getting test vehicles again. My first one is a Mazda CX-5 followed by a Hyundai Palisade. I have a huge stack of "Quick Drives" to write from the last few weeks of events.
  13. That is a clean nice 4yr old bike.
  14. yeah, I'm not buying a brand new bike for my first bike in 20 years. I'll let someone else eat the depreciation. That said.... this is pretty much right on the money.
  15. I am sure you can find a CPO or a new sitting around in the late winter, early spring.
  16. I know, but I have other priorities in the meantime.
  17. Congratulations, always a nice feeling of unloading a rental property and then assessing your options.
  18. Best time to get a great price though... Dealerships are slow all winter.
  19. In the spring. No sense buying one now just to have to stuff it in the garage for 6 months.
  20. @Drew Dowdell So when we are going to see pictures of your new motorcycle?
  21. Closed on the sale of my last rental property today. I'm officially no longer a landlord after 15 years of doing it. I'll get back in the business some day... but I need a rest and reset for now. The nice fat check in my bank account sure helps the cause.
  22. Even given that definition, I think the Challenger fits as a muscle car in spite of its pony car heritage, it's built on the full size LX platform these days.
  23. Even a dryer outlet would give you something like 22 miles in an hour. Overnight that would fully charge your vehicle.
  24. Not the whole 718 lineup is 4-cylinder-only. Only the two lowest trims.
