  1. 1992 Ford Mustang GT Hatchback: Start Up, Test Drive & In Depth Review

    I just watched this video myself on youtube today. I can't say enough how much I liked the Fox body Mustangs. While the 1st generation was always the pinnacle to me.... my formative years were the 80's, so the fact that the pony wars heated up again then and these were being built meant that it only stoked the fires for the new Mustangs that were coming out! This video is a pretty good trip down memory lane for me.
  2. If dealers did do this kind of thing there would be no COPO Camaros from the 60's etc. Sometimes they fill the gaps where the manufacturer leaves them.
  3. Other than the front end I would have guessed that a GM concept.....?
  4. Well, it is the new wave. I do hope, however, that manufacturers continue to improve on the internal combustion engine as there is still a lot to like their. If I was to own a car that was an EV or hybrid... I would favor the hybrid. I suppose that is the best of both worlds, as it were.
  5. Throwback Thursday: 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis

    My family had a couple of Vic's/GMarq's over the decades. My brother had 2 different mid-90's Merc'. I remember when they came out in '92. They were both very well done and certainly great value for the money. One wonders if there will ever be a time when these two could make a come back. With everything going Hybrid/EV it could make a case for having a large sedan (that isn't full on luxury) back in the lineup for some make.... With all the Panthers still out there, I wonder if one of the secondary market players could take the chassis and make some EV out of it?

    No worries, DD. I was not necessarily attempting to refute your assertions about Ford's EcoBoost and throttle application to turbo boost. The basis for the twin turbos to begin with (from my understanding) was to have at least the smaller turbo 'on' as to minimize lag. I suppose I was attempting to say that my 'real world' experience with the EB motor's has been rather good. And in my own usage I would opt for an EB over even the 5.0 in most cases. Don't misunderstand me either, I know that if you dig into the gas pedal with the EB's, mileage will suffer dramatically..... maybe even more so than in a V8....? Definitely a lot of influence from the A Pillar forward.

    Even the Mustang guy in me can say the same.... it is a beast.

    Engage 'Ludicrous' mode and get that casket to the cemetery....... "STAT!!!!".
  10. 2003 Mercury Marauder: Regular Car Reviews

    One of my favorite cars of the early 00's. It was the ultimate expression (from the factory) of the Panther platform and it certainly will hold up for as long as the owner wants ti to. They took a very plain (but handsome) body and made it into very desirable. But, I will admit that I think GM did an even better job with the Caprice bodied Impala SS'. That series of Caprice's were not an attractive design, but in Imp SS guise, it really was a nice looking car. I am glad both existed when they did.

    Well, it was early July when I helped a friend buy a Golf Sportwagon. Very good car for the money. There were other reasons beyond the pricing, but I can see why VW is starting to see a rebound in sales.
  12. August 2017: Ford Motor Co.

    Wow, cars are just getting led to the slaughter it would seem! Will be looking elsewhere to see what other brands are doing, but not a rosy picture here for Ford other than their more profitable trucks are holding the line.
  13. Cummins Beats Tesla

    That rear platform where the 5th wheel hookup is would certainly seem to me to be a perfect place for the battery pack(s).
  14. Review: 2017 Kia Niro EX

    Good all around review. To be sure, after the initial surge of TV ad's put out by Kia I had forgotten about this vehicle. It is hard for me as a resident of the Northeast to get too excited about a utility vehicle that doesn't offer AWD (regardless of whether it is a hybrid or not), but I am sure many may not have that particular pet peeve. It looks ok, but the pricing seems a bit below average which, I suppose, should be expected out of Kia.
