    Actually its not paint so much as a wrap.. and that is not necessarily what they are talking about.. they are taking more in line with Mules that have leather/pleather/vinyl cladding in teh the earlier stages.. I am betting that the wraps continue but the actual cladding is now going to be abandoned sooner

    Had great weather on the North Coast for late November. Visited a few wineries and did a bit of holiday shopping at them, saw some lighthouses, walked on beaches...great scenery and roads..Jeep drove great.

    I think this truck is awesome it re-writes the rules and could change the way shipping is done. Diesel semi's have basically seen not a whole lot of advancement in 20-30 years, sure they got an extra mpg here or there, a little more acceleration, but this would be a breakthrough. The fact that you could have trucks that aren't god awful slow, or polluting like crazy or making a ton of noise would be epic. I am actually quite excited for this. That being said, they actually have to build it. Tesla has a new idea every year, but they can't actually produce the ideas they come up with and get them in people's hands.

    This gorgeous car reminds me of the one I had. I miss it greatly. Mine was a '65, there were only minor details different from this '68-'69 model. Sigh.

    Remember, Lutz was not a designer...wasn't he more of a sales guy and product planner? Being in IT for 20+ years and seeing the complexity, fragility, bugs and insecurity of software on a daily basis, I can't imagine trusting software to control something as complex as driving....

    All these fake exhaust tips integrated into bumpers on all the cars these days are really starting to annoy me. They look cheap, they get dirty much faster because they're in the exhaust stream in the case of models that have the real tips behind them, an they're usually made of plastic chrome. I used to ask myself "why do this???" , and of course the answer was that it cuts costs. Like the Volkswagen ATLAS and Tiguan, they have these chrome rectangles pieces with a moudling plastic inner, made to look like an exhaust!!! WTF?!! The real tips are actually behind the bumper.... Even the new Lexus LS. Same goddamn deal, you actually even see the real tips that look cheap because they're not plated, and then you see the fake tips that are part of the bumper....I see it in new Mercedes sedans....everywhere....it triggers like an OCD like rageeeee attack in my mind. FUCK OFF YOU FAKE EXHAUST TIPS!!!!

    BULLSHYTE!!! That there... is admittance of taking a defensive side... BTW. Your social justice warrior shyte gets old. Bobo mentioned HIS views on how he feels about the President of the United States of America on on how the year ended up being with him being in charge. YOU or even Drew cant stop freedom of expression. And even though this site tries hard to avoid the political stuff, its bound to phoquing happen from time to time. Politics is a part of life. It has always been and it will forever continue to be. Grow up dude. Grow a set of ballz. I too...will make sure injustices like this wont go unanswered...and ultimately its Drew that decides whose voice gets heard... What kind of injustices? Hearing your whiny shyte time and time again when something is against YOUR own system... The downvotes. Your social justice warrior rants of how one should express one's feelings especially when they dont match your own... Have you forgotten how YOU casually made fun of me with Trudeau a while back? Now Im sure I will get some sort of warning or even a temp ban for politics or trolling or talking about a poster rather than automobiles, but JESUS CHRIST!!! We are all adults in here. We are all mostly above 35 years old. Most of us are even over 40. Closer to 50 with some of us at 50. A little jab on the President and your mind is phoquing blown???!!! Funny, you mentioned Trudeau to me on a slightly less than flattering way making fun of me yet pushing YOUR political view on me and I didnt lose my mind... OK Drew....Im ready to not post for a week. Do your worst on me.

    Slept a bit from 6 am to 9:30 am; took a sick day; lying on my couch covered in warm, dozing terriers binge-watching 'The Orville'... not paying attention to the news or anything else. Mellow...

    Helped my sister buy a new 2017 Buick Envision Premier II fully loaded this week. MSRP was $50,150, paid $38,645 plus tax and license. There is a sale for the December numbers!

    A Trax EV with a 225+ mile range would be just about the smartest EV move GM could make.

    You are correct, and since you are so concerned about cow farts, here is a link, however off topic, to an article addressing the issue. Since you're new here, we usually stick to automotive discussion. Here is information about rail emissions reduction programs. Here is information about tractor trailer emissions reduction programs. Here is information about efforts to get shipping industry emissions under control, though not successful yet. Since you are now informed in those areas, you can stop making straw-man and "Whattabout" arguments against improving emissions from cars, cars being the primary subject of this site.

    Looked at a '18 Z51 Corvette on the dealer lot Sunday- sticker price was $102K. Moltar- you could get behind this :: wouldn't it be a hoot to take a car like that Corvette and put a tri-carb Chevy Stovebolt 6 in there from a C1 vette, with like 150 (gross) HP? I can hear you grinning appreciably & nodding affirmatively all the way over here in Jersey.

    @oldshurst442 - I split this into its own topic so as to not derail the original one too much beyond where it has already gone. Short version: My parents own a boat propeller performance tuning business, and an avocado orchard with 90 85 trees and 4 varieties after the hurricane. Long version: The avocado farm is not a working farm at this point. They bought it out of foreclosure and have spent most of their time rebuilding the house on the property into something livable. Their first night in the new house was the night I arrived to help them prep for the hurricane. Regarding the boat business. Imagine if you could, that you could take your tires to a shop and that shop would modify your tires to make your car a bit faster, a bit more fuel efficient, or both. My parents do that with boat propellers... and my dad is so good at it that they do virtually zero advertising and they keep a steady business going. They are almost entirely word of mouth and they are the go-to people when cheaper shops screw up your propellers. They take all of the vital statistics of the boat. Weight, width, length, engine size, engine speeds, rated horsepower, torque, gearing, all of that and more. They put all of that into a program which then designs the ideal shape of the propeller for that boat. They then scan each blade at set radii with an extremely precise scanning device and compare that to what the computer generates. They then use hamers, hydraulics, and some proprietary machinery my dad invented to shape the propeller into the exact design that the computer spits out. This results in ultra-balanced, very efficient propellers that will often result in a 2 mph - 5mph increase in speed and a reduction in fuel usage. That may not sound like much, but when you're talking about a 150 ft. yacht, that is a HUGE increase. So, if you have a big boat and you want to go faster than your friends, you go see my parents. If you have a really fast boat and you want to make sure you go faster than the Coast Guard (it is Miami, you don't ask questions), you go see my parents. If you hit coral with your $50,000 propellers and you need them fixed back to better than factory tolerances, but you already had a "cheap" shop do it and they still vibrate when you're out on the bay, you go see my parents. I come from a line of entrepreneurs. My parents, both grandfathers, two of my great grandfathers, all owned or ran their own companies. I'll be starting a 5th company of my own in 2018.
