    DRIVEN: 2019 Chevrolet Blazer LT AWD 3.6

    Yeah when clinging to hope that a Blazer can do the trick, I choose Kinetic Blue as it is the only color with life in it at the build & price. But I refuse to spend more money on a damn paint color, so I switch to Graphite as it doesn't cost extra, but then my fake smile goes even faker when I look at it in CGI on my monitor and I give up. Blazer just has no fire. I think it has a wider track than its sister vehicles, from what I've read. Supposed to aid handling and stability (WIDETRACK PONTIAC!) I have not looked up hard numbers though, prolly like .1" wider or something. Blah.

    So you've joined the ranks of my 80-year old customers. Maybe AARP can get you a discount on car insurance. No but really, some of those mirrors can be downright silly priced, depending on the level of bell & whistle.

    February Car Spotting

    Coincidentally I saw an early W-body Regal Custom coupe, light blue over blue cloth, in the grocery store parking lot, looking worse for wear, but hey, it got there under its own power! No dents, just heavily weathered.

    My tax man says different. I believe him. Sorry.

    The downhill slide will instantly grow more precipitous if this notion comes to fruition.

    What on Earth is funny about that statement from Barra? It is very foreboding.

    Or they could have just put the extra money they kept in their paychecks all year in the bank toward that new car, or warshing machine, or whatever...

    2020 GMC Acadia AT4. You can see it's lifted with all-terrain tires, with a new front end and taillights. It also has the Terrain's shifter set-up.

    “Trucks in middle America,” Barra said, “will be one of the areas last disrupted.” What an evil statement.

    Yeah, the newest Lincolns are American style to me, not retro. Love 'em.
  13. The current Mustang is a nicer Mustang than the current Camaro is at being a Camaro.

    Rivian Lands $700M In Investment Commitements

    I looked into this very closely. It's actually an old AMC Javelin dealership ad, each dealer got one of these. This one is missing his javelin (he is not throwing a gang sign). Plus, it is very cold. Or he could just be a normal Greek guy on the warmest day of the year. Not sure.

    Well they were on the road. I did not see rust holes on them, but I also did not dive my Jeep across traffic in front of them, run them in the ditch, and force them to let me do a thorough visual and tactile inspection. All I know is, I still see a good number of ZR2 pickups and Blazers in my corner of the world. They are loved.

    Tesla Cuts Model 3 Price Again

    Nobody buys electrified Hondas. So... giving them away is a necessity, and even then it has not worked.
