  2. Industry News: More Luxury Car Buyers Are Moving to Trucks and SUVs

    Anecdotes from suburbia---house across the street from me...wife has a late model Audi A4, husband just replaced a Ford Edge with a new Ram 1500. House 3 drs down, husband has a '15-ish F150, wife has a BMW 3-series.
  3. I bet it's most likely a wife with a German luxury vehicle while the husband owns an American truck and I doubt that would change even if Mercedes or Lexus made a truck.

    PERFECT! Now for 26k, let's hope the rest of the car isn't trashed too then.. So, @dfelt, what would be on your list?!?
  5. Dream Car Garage- ATP Used Car Edition

    Love your list of Auto's and the garage kept beauty of the GMC Syclone. That is an awesome find. The perfect stable mate to go with the Syclone is the Typhoon from GMC. You can get a replacement screen unit for $497.00 https://www.gmpartsonline.net/oem-parts/gm-display-unit-22809317
  6. Perhaps Chevrolet should take over the CTS, CT6 and XT5 since they are so good at luxury sales then. What I’d be curious to know is what percentage of Lexus/BMW/Mercedes/etc households also have a pick up truck in them. Because if these households are buying trucks then Lexus and Mercedes should jump in rather than lose sales. If 2% of their households buy a truck then don’t bother.

    That CTS-V Sport looks like it has been ridden hard and put away wet. I would be careful as I saw the shattered center screen but also enough wear that who ever was the previous owner is a I do not care, lease, use it, abuse it and trade it back in. Even with the so called cleaning, that auto has considerable wear which makes me think the past lease owner was not only dirty but had high acid in their sweat due to the wear of symbols on dash, steering wheel and shifter. Could be a good deal or it could be a money pit.

    I didn't notice the cracked screen but even if that were $1500 it's still super cheap for that car.

    Today is a totally random day and this is amazing to see how they shipped new cars in the 70's.

    I have a soft spot for these. They probably sell decently in South Korea, but getting parts here could be a pain.

    Seems California has introduced Legislation that would make the State stop the sale of ICE auto's in 2040. http://www.thedrive.com/sheetmetal/17359/california-lawmaker-introduces-bill-calling-for-all-electric-car-sales-by-2040

    Glossy Armor All like it's 1998 Hopefully the cracked LCD is not too expensive to get replaced.

    Interesting, story on The Drive about 8 auto's that cannot pass over the Brooklyn Bridge due to their 3 ton weight limit. http://www.thedrive.com/new-cars/1720/8-cars-that-legally-cant-cross-the-brooklyn-bridge Seems pretty much every full size truck and SUV plus a couple cars that were surprising.
  16. Random Thoughts Thread

    Back in 2000, I remember a buddy of mine accidentally let the plates expire on his Suburban...he took the back plate off his Porsche 930 and put it on....leaving the airport parking garage at Denver, the guy in the booth commented that his front and back plates didn't match...my buddy, was like 'Really? I didn't notice..'.... I think he eventually re-registered the Suburban, but he drove around like that for at least 6 months. I was with him when this happened, we had flown back from a tech conference in San Francisco..

    LOL, NJ trucker uses fishing line to pull up license plate to evade paying as he rolls through turnpike payment booth. Police did catch him and demoed the license plate pull up.

    26k for a V Sport???? That sounds so damn cheap. I want that.

    Watched last night an episode of Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars getting Coffee" on Netflix. He had 1965 Buick Riviera. I am usually not into that kind of cars, but boy this car is simply gorgeous. Pictures simply don't do it justice.
  20. February Car Spotter

    Your right, I will take a 71-72 over the 73. I do like that rear end.
  21. February Car Spotter

    I love the boattail Rivs, esp. the '71-72 with the oh-so-cool offset rear license plate..
  22. Random Thoughts Thread

    IIRC, the CC is on the Euro Passat platform (not the current US one) and the Phaeton was on the Bentley Continental platform (maybe also shared w/ the Audi A8 from 10 years ago?) A former boss of mine had a black on black CC, nice car...used to ride to lunch it..was tight w/ 4 people inside, though.
  23. February Car Spotter

    I wish someone in the auto industry would bring back some style like this Riv. Talk about a lovely 1973 Lady!
  24. Kia News: Next-Generation Kia K900 Begins To Tease Us

    According to the sales data, 22 in Jan and 455 for all of 2017, so yes they should kill it off since it clearly does not make a profit. Just like all those german models that only sell a few hundred a year.
  25. February Car Spotter

    I didn't see the grille, only the side and taillights, so not sure of the year...
