    Cars obviously, especially Ford & GM vehicles. Music (80s "hair" metal, heavy metal, classic rock, prog rock), travel, architecture/city planning, drawing, designing, playing guitar, etc.
  1. I'm going to have to side with Nick here. Most girls I have been friends with or dated were nerve-wracking drivers. Poor spatial judgement, poor ability to stay centered in the road, easily distracted, braking at the last second...endless white knuckle moments. My girlfriend is ok, but I have noticed that she comes up on vehicles a little too quickly when braking and also has a hard time judging the distance of the vehicle ahead.
  2. This Matt Hardigree cat is another two-bit blogger brimming with ignorance. Let's do a little timewarp back to 1991 and see what they were saying about the Explorer back then... http://www.motortrend.com/classic/roadtests/9108_1991_ford_explorer_test/index.html Funny, that sounds a lot like Ford's intent with the 2011 model.
  3. I prefer the direction they were going with these concepts instead of the bow wave grille and chunky styling Lincoln has today. They need to take the body of the MKR and mix it with the front-end restraint some of these concepts showed and make a sedan and coupe already.
  4. I would love to see GM chop three inches vertically out of the entire length of the vehicle. That alone would solve most of my design qualms with the Coupe. The stance and wheels on the CTS Coupe Concept is pure awesomeness though.
  5. It's an oven around here. Some pretty severe storms are brewing to the west, so it may be a long night.
  6. Sophomore in high school (2001). What a year that was.

    It'd be fun to plow through snowbanks with that.
  8. One that hasn't been mentioned yet but oozes with cool...Trans Am I like Cutlass a lot too.
  9. Thanks Knightfan, much appreciated! I figured Nashville was probably in pretty bad shape considering the pictures I had seen. Right now, the plan is to meander through Illinois and meet up with I-24 going through Nashville, and then we'd stay in Chattanooga the first night. On the way back, we're going to stay in Paducah, KY. I thought about making a pit stop in Bowling Green for the Corvette museum , but it's going to be a tight schedule back and I don't know if there will be enough time. Instead of Savannah or Charleston, the plan is now to spend half a day in St. Augustine, FL. It'll be much closer, and there should be plenty to take in there with all the Spanish influence and historic buildings.
  10. Yep, I googled it and that looks to be what it was. Interesting that they were made from 1961-65...I would have thought about 1957 or so.
  11. Saw some little amphibious car with tailfins the other day. No idea what it was, but it was kinda cool.
  12. In early August my girlfriend and I will be driving to Florida. Along the way we will be passing through Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Georgia. We'll be heading through Alabama on the way back since we're going to stop and visit her niece near Huntsville. I've been to all mentioned except the deep south states like Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi, so it should be a fun trip. How inundated was Nashville with water? I was thinking that would be a great halfway point, but if it was anything like the flooding we had here two years ago, we'll probably stay somewhere else instead. I want to check out Atlanta, but I don't really know what there is to see or do. I thought about making a sidetrip over to Savannah and staying there for a night...is it worth it? Or maybe Charleston, SC? What else is there to see & do in the south? Any good recommendations for places to eat along the way?
