    They brought the Aviator to Houston last weekend of course it was locked and no new Explorers. I read one of the press releases about the Explorer/Aviator saying you can get a 4' wide piece of material in the back any idea how much wiggle room there is once said material is loaded? When it is...

    And they haven't had a mid size performance sedan since 2015 yet they invested who knows how much in the SVR XE and F Pace. I see a decent amount of F-Types around houston however. I know you do not like the new or old XF but the XFR was a car that had potential imo outside of the crap water...

    Nitrous Blue 2018 Focus RS

    Some of the SS guys are looking at getting DSC to do a kit similar to the Camaro and Vette options they offer. From what I have read on the forums from the P car owners have been very happy with their solution.

    Idiots + cars = LOL

    Spotted at the Tesla building during Cars and Coffee in Plano, do people normally clear out before 9 or was that due to the game yesterday? {"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","src":"https:\/\/i.imgur.com\/kxQzd2P.jpg"}

    Thanks I got the idea from a charger, they have a similar color combo from the factory. The MGW is amazing, it makes shifting feel that much more mechanical, the clicks and how it shifts from gear to gear is a completely different feeling from any other manual trans I have used. The short...

    Been busy with the car lately, got a paint correction and ceramic coating along with having the upper window trim wrapped flat black. I also swapped out the chrome interior trim for the factory piano black pieces I picked up in Brisbane last month. You will also notice the six piston calipers...

    Your right I have not driven one and on the street they are both capable. The G8 does have way more character than the SS and like you said you can blame corporate design standards for that thankfully for not much money you can add some character back by replacing the horrendous gold bow ties...

    If you want a drivers car the SS will wipe the floor with a charger/challenger up to the scat pack trim and is a drivers race with the scat pack. I am biased towards the SS with one in the garage the car truly is the last of a dying breed especially if you want a 6spd.

    I have been teaching my three and five year olds everyone on the road should be treated as they are all morons. Today I asked my five year old what kind of people you drive with on the road, she replied they are all jackasses LMFAO. The kids at five and three hate traffic and yell at people...

    New daily driver: 2018 edition

    I would love to have the HSV bits but the hoops you need to jump through to even think about buying them put enough people off, if you are a lucky one that does manage to get your hands on them the price is the next hurdle. Someone brought their converted G8 GXP to Cars and Coffee a few months...

    Mine has a wobbly stick in the center console and some drunk as far as I know has never thrown up in the back seat, used 15s are going for mid 30s if you do not care about color. The biggest drivetrain difference between the caprice and the SS is the engine the Caprice got the 6.0 and the SS...

    Just curious do they use a different head gasket design on the STi engine? in the 7.5 years and 65k miles I had my 07 STi the only things I had to change were the clutch, transmission and rear diff fluid along with the plugs. Had I kept it much longer the stock clutch would have needed changed...

    We are in Tomball north west of downtown on the very north side of Harris county. We did not have any issues in our neighborhood thankfully. I know bronze/copper on red is a take it or leave it comob and depends a lot on the car, I decided to try it for the fact everyone has done black and some...
