  1. Just a quick point to those who are saying the car is 12+ years old: The article states he bought his car new in 2002.
  2. http://www.caranddriver.com/dailyautoinsid...llac-cts-v.html Car and Driver has some more spy shots and a video of it lapping the Ring. I haven't watched it, so I'm not sure if it's what you guys are talking about.
  3. I haven't posted in a while, but I had to share this. The Car You Won't Own Scott Adams - "The Dilbert Blog" A group called the X Foundation is planning to award $10 million to anyone who can design a commercially viable car that can get 100 miles per gallon. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/02/business/02xprize.html I don’t know exactly what “commercially viable” means in this context. I haven’t seen the rules. But something tells me that the winning car will weigh six pounds and seat one anorexic dwarf. If you put a grape in the trunk, the front wheels will come off the ground. And I have
  4. When I opened this thread, my first thought was, "Hey, that doesn't look too bad!" Then I realized it's because it's an Aura face.
  5. It's an auto, and I was also thinking of seeing if I could fit the new 6-speed in there somehow (I like a challenge). Of course I'll have a bit of fun every once in a while, Walt ;-) Quantum, thanks for the suggestions.
  6. So I found this awesome white '94 Z28 with ~88,000 miles on it, and all I'm waiting for is the finance guys to tell me where to sign. But, I'm a little concerned about fuel economy. I'm going to assume that the MPG on a 12-year-old V8 aren't going to be great, and I can accept that. My question is are there any ways that I can mechanically change the 5.7 (LT1?) that will increase my fuel economy? I've developed a pretty economical driving technique by driving my parents' Tahoe, XC90, and S80 T6 over the years, so I'm looking for something that will help post some worthwhile gains combined with
  7. I like it! It does look very American, almost where Lincoln should be headed (?). I agree with Fly about the A-pillar. And yeah, I even like the front end, mainly because it's different, in a Bugs Bunny sort of way.
  8. It'll still have the AUX jack it's had for a couple years, but as an extra option it'll have the iPod dock connector.I think the fact that the iPod has roughly 77% of the market and 70% of cars sold in the US will have iPod connectivity pretty much $h!s all over Microsoft and every other MP3 player manufacturer. Yes, capriceman, you are.

    I thought this thing died a long time ago? Anyway, this has to be the best styled Bangle BMW, like, ever. But I still want a Vette.
  10. Yeah, here's the thing about that, FOG: The MKZ isn't going on sale until next year. The Zephyr, however, sold 3,027 in July, 2006.
  11. If one wanted to, one could make that into quite the disgusting statement. Wouldn't be difficult, either...
  12. Look what I saw today: I hate how cheap that grille treatment looks, but the interior appears nice through tinted windows.
  13. TCC's new spyshots Cadillac's CTS sedan will be new for the 2008 model year. The next-generation CTS will be built on GM's rear-wheel-drive Sigma platform. This prototype, photographed at Germany's famous Nürburgring racetrack, gives a look at the dramatic styling of the new CTS. Yeah, it has some pretty bad CGIs that even have the current wheels, butt he actual spy shots are good.
