  1. I kind of see a bit of the classic Lancia Delta Integrale shape...almost an homage to '70s-80s Guigaro crisply folded shapes...much preferable to egg/potato styling, IMO.

  2. Speaking of Cougars w/ Coyotes, found this today--Ring Brothers custom...that Coyote V8 is stuffed in there, looks like they reworked the inner fenders and front suspension (the original shock towers long gone). Love the color combo, very tasteful resto-mod, IMO. https://www.autoblog.com/2021/02/25/ringbrothers-mercury-cougar-restomod/#slide-2298758

  6. You are disagreeing with me liking the Oshkosh's weird styling? I like how it looks. Nothing more, nothing less. I like many weird looking things. I like the A10 Warthog. I like the F4 Phantom II. I like the Nissan Juke Nismo... I never talked about its qualities and qualifications as nobody knows how it will performs. Many programs such as this actually change the exterior stylings somewhat when they actually become real All changes before and during WW2. Between Willys and Ford and Bantam. Tweaks here and there. concept Volt

  7. Course NONE of that would have been required if not for the Profits over Human life and greedy electrical ERCOT of Texas that went cheap and did not pay to have proper winterizing of both the 24.8% of power production by Wind Turbines but more importantly the 51% produced by Natural gas as the pipes froze blocking the gas flow. Coal 13.4%, Nuclear 4.9%, Solar 3.8% and Biomass fired units 1.9% still worked. Texas energy: How much power comes from wind turbines, natural gas? (statesman.com) Freeze off is the official problem due to no Winterization of pipes and so ice formed blocking n

  8. Sadly, too late for pictures, but.. Equinox got a wash and quick spray waxing, and I vacuumed it too. Only need to wipe down the dash... Cobalt also got a wash and a quick spray waxing. Didn’t get the chance to clean the inside though. (But it is in pretty good shape). Also did not realize one can get cheap weathertech “knock offs” on EBay. Want to replace the old carpeted mats...the ebay ones are made in Europe- and the whole set is like 70 bucks. And for a beater, that is a good price.... Also need to get my old Cavalier a new battery...current one is dated 5/11.......

  14. You cant disagree with me liking it. YOU may hate it. But you cant disagree with ME liking it... That is like Ocnblu downvoting my Toyota Hilux and 4Runner pics... You wanna have a discourse with me on why I should NOT like the styling? Who cares how it looks IF it performs the way it should. The Chevrolet Volt (that we actually got) was an UGLY design too. BUT it worked because it had (still has?) the LOWEST air coefficient drag of ANY production vehicle. To help with range efficiency with less friction and drag... Function over form... Its not about

  15. I did not see that initially, but after reading that line, now I cant unsee it. Yes. A mix of Pony and Excel Id say. Id say the Ioniq 5 is an attractive CUV. (High hatchback?) (Or could we just change up the marking spiel and call it a Sports ACTIVITY Vehicle, SAV for short? It could charge all kinds of stuff like EV scooters and CAMPING equipment and high powered electric stuff...you know...outdoor ACTIVITY stuff...) I like the specs on it and the EV stuff it could do. Like the interior AND exterior charging ports to charge all kinds

  17. - - - - - RE the Oshkosh mail truck : of course it's hideously ugly. With all the ubiquitous gassing about tech & futurism, I was offhandedly expecting something more 'pod-like' if we're likely going to still be looking at them in the year 2060. These look like they were designed in 1985. UPS has touted this image as a future vehicle- why not a teensy bit sleeker (not Oshkosh's bag, I know) :

  20. Yeah, modern times typical. I think only Summit White is free at GMC (Sierra), then there a couple that are $195, about 4-5 that are $495 and 1-2 that are $695. But at 70 grand, it should be included even moreso than at the $50K level. “Optional paint”. Wonder if you can get a vehicle ‘paint delete’?

  22. Maybe, Maybe not, but they do make a solid argument. Press release on the race truck, 600HP, seems to have plenty of power. Lordstown Motors To Race Endurance Electric Pickup Truck Skateboard in I like the setup They gave a business update on January 28th 2021 as they have stamped their 57 beta builds for mule testing in the real world. They are also a publicly traded company now so flush with $675 million in cash from the stock sale and another $250 million from investment firm. At least they will get to production and delivery for their 40,000 pre-orders they

  25. Personally, as it's our tax dollars, i could give two s less what it looks like. I want it to function, be economical, and do the job that's needed from it. Appearance would be at the VERY bottom of the list of things I care about.

  26. I never said it was a good looking vehicle. I said its weird looking. From the very start... We actually dont disagree. We BOTH think its ugly. I just LIKE it... I just find a certain charm to it. For whatever inexplicable reason. Hey...I also bought a 2012 Acura TL because I like the TL's style too. I recognize its one ugly motherphoquer... Yes you do. I dont mind that. I know of one dude though that will throw a hissy fit... You dont know how well it will perform. I actually applaud the fact that it could be converted from ICE to EV. Best of BOTH

  28. Have to disagree with you as the Oshkosh looks old, cheap and does not reflect where the USPS needs to go with efficiency and future. UPS is far better even as an ugly pod over the Oshkosh. I have to also wonder due to the USPS Head being a Lackey from POTUS45 and Oshkosh being a Potus45 supporter how much under the table money exchanged hands to get this contract for the Billions and then as you state, 2 years before the final actual truck comes out. If this is not the actual truck which is what is implied and they showed off an ICE, no hybrid or EV version compared to the others, how did the

  33. It can be tough! But, damn, the Puget Sound area, with the wall to wall evergreen, looks so damn nice when covered in snow, even though it doesn't function well. Also, with enough curvy two-lane roads and hills in the burbs, the black ice sort of sneaks up on you. If a person can walk to a local independent coffeehouse that's open, that could be good. Thankfully, this sort of weather in the Puget Sound Basin is a rare occurrence.

  38. Dialogue has commenced, but the Cherokee Tribe seem pretty set on having Jeep Drop the name. Chief of Cherokee Nation asks Jeep to stop using tribe's name (msn.com) I can see Jeep as they bring out their Hybrid and then EV changing the name. Texas should have done what Canada did back in 1998 to get some power on for people. Use Loco's to power the grid.

  39. they could have literally replaced the current Ford Edge with this design, and put a gas motor in it. Would sell well. I don't mind the Mach E but the marketplace adopting electrics will be slow.
