  1. Because, you know, people who buy Pick ups buy them for hauling stuff lol. Good thing they have a bed longer than four feet with which to drag their asses on the street.

  2. Dragging their ass like an old Lincoln Continental with blown air springs...... so dumb

  3. ^ 'Carolina Squat' is what I've heard it called. The people doing it probably don't know about how that kind of stance was used in the 60s for the Gasser drag look.

  4. Exactly! I keep seeing the Zephyr all over my Facebook feed and people going gaga over it.... I'm here like "It's just a refreshed Fusion/MKZ". And really, the only difference in the profile is that instead of flipping the end of the top of the trunk up, they flicked it down so it's "like an A7"... but that's where the similarity to the Audi ends.

  7. Bizarre? The word we are looking for here is "Horses***". Carolina squat and the Cali lean. Saw way too many in Arizona and I've seen few here as well. Just dumb beyond words to spend money to ruin a perfectly good pick up.

  8. I really dont see a difference of the sedan FoMoCo is proposing for the future, and the one that FoMoCo just canceled... (other than the Audi-ish rear treatment)

  9. Fixed. The Cherokee Trailhawk and certain equipped levels of Forester and Outback are certainly more off-road capable.

  10. I don't get it either. I thought the point of a bike is to exercise, unless of course you have a medical condition.

  13. Quite good...I see quite a few people in the park on bikes. I've thought about getting a bicycle again and getting out and about.

  14. ^ the side profile is very much like the Fusion. I haven't read anything about Ford's plans for Europe, are they getting a new Mondeo? Thought I saw something about a while back about a CUV-ish wagon version of the Mondeo/Fusion for the US (?) and Europe eventually.. Edit: Found this rendering of a future Mondeo wagon...and a disguised prototype.

  16. My son is getting the hang of the Wayback Machine page. Maybe having too much fun with it! He found some old school C&G stuff, and found my handle. He’s like “ Dad, you’ve almost been on that site for 17 years! You like cars that long?” Wow, that made me feel old.........

  20. Could be, but the running gear under a Santa Cruz is no less capable than what is under a Cherokee, Rav4, CR-V, Subaru, Equinox or whatever else and the small-mid crossover market is several million units a year. The majority of pick up buyers don't tow 10,000 pounds or haul a lot of payload, they overbuy capability they won't ever use. So I think this Santa Cruz will find a lot of buyers because there isn't anything else like it on market. 48 volt mild hybrid everything. While ICE lasts.

  21. yes, in HP/Liter.... if you're spinning them to 7,000 rpm... they are the highest HP/Liter they've ever been.... But all of the manufacturers putting these sub-1.5liter I3 and I4s in things that really need more displacement is what I think @Davidis referencing. My Encore was an overall great vehicle hampered by the 1.4T... and now they've made a bigger version powered by a smaller displacement motor. eAssist couldn't hurt.

  23. Daimler never builds any of their concept cars. But yes; it's especially dumpy. Serious question : what, in your opinion, of the last 20 years, has been 'earth shattering'? - - - - - - I'm impressed on 2 dimensions of the Lyriq: wheelbase is way up there at 122" (1 inch short of my B-59 and an inch longer than an Escalade), and the width at nearly 78". It has no overhangs tho, so the 197" OL is relatively short.

  24. I hear ya loud and clear, Drew! Initially, I refrained from spewing my diatribe because I KNEW it be douchey... But I posted it anyway... I feel like I need to apologize. But I wont. Too many people think Canadians are nice and they apologize all the time. Well. I wont give in to the stereotype! LOL

  25. ^^^ I guess you are right. But I still think its counter productive. If you aint fit to bike ride (too long), than maybe e-assist may work out for you, but what better way to get INTO shape than to NOT use e-assist and use your sheer will power and determination and motivation to use your LEG muscles to POWER YOUR way through and BECOME fit. I dont know. Maybe the slogans: 'Just Do it!' and 'No pain, No gain' are just marketing BS...

  26. Not everyone is as fit as everyone else. The E-Bikes allow for an assist for those who need it.

  27. It actually is pretty sharp and shows that Cadillac is capable of putting out something a little more "daring" in design. And even though I know they are purely frivolous, I really dig the led sequential patterns going on with it.

  28. Saw this on another site and its analysis (if you will) is spot on. The Benz EQS went from beautiful concept to a gloried 2000 Dodge Intrepid on the outside. It was a bean counters wet dream, by the looks of it. https://www.motortrend.com/news/mercedes-vision-eqs-ev-design/ Meanwhile Cadillac did the EXACT opposite and kept true to their concept with the Lyriq. The luxury and EV community and their respective buyers should take note of these events. https://www.motortrend.com/news/2023-cadillac-lyriq-first-look-review/ Yes because I'm sure pulling out of a race ear

  29. Sounds like I'm the target customer...I like the Rails-to-Trails paths here in Cuyahoga Valley National Park and other parks around the metro area. And off roading for me is pulling my Jeep into gravel parking lots near some of these trails...heh heh...

  30. No one is going overlanding in a Santa Cruz, the hardware under there is still car based. This is for people who walk paved Rails-to-Trails paths at Ohiopyle and call it hiking.

  33. You can't call yourself "science guy" and then say no point of going to space. Science has always been about discovery of unknown and pushing the boundaries of known. If people wouldn't be willing to expand and learn and discover, we still would live in the original caves we came from and hunt with spears. There are so many innovations that came out from trying to push the boundaries, exploring. Exploring space gave a huge amount of things we use daily now. Take as an example that small helicopter flight that this whole discussion started. Flying on Mars is an equivalent of flying on Ea

  34. I'm very much a science and technology guy, and I'm pretty sure space launches and the moon missions, etc have all happened. But being cynical, I've never seen much point in going to space (beyond launching satellites).. seems like a big money pit...billions and billons of $$$ wasted that could be put to better use to improving life on Earth, IMO. I don't see the value in spreading the scourge of humanity into the solar system, humanity will destroy itself here eventually...better to contain the destruction wrought by humans to Earth.

  35. You can't question something that is an established FACT. It is like flat earthers questioning if the Earth really a globe. I am not going to even discuss this. Honestly, I was of a higher opinion of you.

  42. Had my son's GF sit in my '64 GP a couple days ago. When she settled and look to her right, she exclaimed 'Look how wide it is!' I doubt I'll ever drop down to a mid-size or compact-size vehicle. Then again, the smallest daily driver I've had was within a few inches of an S-class (length)... and everything else has been larger.
