    Unverified Ownership I just can't quit them: 2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder, heavily modified.

    It was unseasonably warm today, so I took the newly aligned MR2 out for a spin along with my fluffy copilot. Wow the roads around here are crap even with stock suspension rather than the coilovers.

    Unverified Ownership I just can't quit them: 2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder, heavily modified.

    After selling my 2ZZ Mk1, I still kept an eye on Spyderchat and other boards for 2ZZ Spyders in good condition. This one came up in Richmond VA with all the right parts (6-speed transmission with LSD, baffled oil pan, whole bunch of chassis bracing) and a few others that are beyond what I...

    Least "Angry" Cars

    Luxury brands are pretty consistently angry. The Jaguar F-Type, at least until the new facelift, is an exception: Which is ironic considering the 1997 XK8 had an angry face before it became common.

    Did all these manufacturers develop these independently or was there a particularly pushy supplier that sold it to multiple companies? Feels like a lot of R&D time and attention into what turned out to be a dead-end technology. See also: Saab Sensonic.

    Aw, I'm sure even Trump supporters can learn to brush off criticism of their main man. Just learn from the example of this guy.

    ....except for many things like elevators and airplanes, which are referenced in that exact comic you quoted. So not "basically everything else". Yeah even with the 737 MAX accidents the safety odds for air travel aren't turned catastrophic. Sure, the temporary psychological impact is there...

    Would the pedal box even line up with the XJS? Everything else might, but the XJS has a much narrower footwell than the X300.

    And then an electrical restomod of a classic VW, resulting in U S3XY Thing. Unlikely? Who knows. I believe in miracles.
