    Possible Enzo-fighter from the charging bull?

    http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/News/articleId=107460#2 If the Miura is to be built, then it'd better be lightweight and RWD. The possible 1,000+ hp Murci?lago definitely WON'T be lightweight, so Lambo needs a proper ultra-performance road car.

    GIFs slowing computer to a crawl!

    Whenever I open a page with a large animated gif, my machine starts slowing down TREMENDOUSLY (such as some of the avatars on this site). It's strange because it's a brand-new install of Windows. Firefox is not an option (not approved on our network), so IE it must be. It's weird because my...

    Considering a Cooper S...

    Well, after a bit of soul-searching, I'm seriously considering a Cooper S instead of the Golf V GTI I had my heart set on. Why? Well, for one, it's cheaper (in America, the new GTI will be about $4,000 more expensive than the Coop), it's MUCH lighter (to the tune of ~2500 lbs, as opposed to...

    BMW's model designation

    Being the Audi nut I am, I am very familiar with Audi's designations for their platforms and chassis. For instance, my car's platform is B5, meaning the fifth generation of the second-size platform (B). They likewise have the C and D platforms, used in the A6 and A8, respectively. Further, we...

    Looks like I won't be watching the ALMS 12-hours at Sebring.

    NONE of the sports channels I have available to me are showing the 12 hours at Sebring this year. NONE OF THEM. So I'll have to deal with listening to the live radio on americanlemans.com. Damn.

    Somebody tell Clarkson how to pronounce Murci?lago

    For those of you who DON'T know, it is pronounced: moor-see-EL-ah-go Forget the "th" sound or the "tch" sound (Clarkson!). It is a Spanish name, therefore should be pronounced as it would be in Spanish. The accent over the E means that is the syllable to be pronounced. At least he got...

    As motorheads, we should all be deeply saddened by this.

    Ladies and gentlemen, the new Dodge Charger. What a sad, sad day. Dodge is reviving a classic name for their vanilla four-door family hauler. Ooh, it has a V8...big freakin' deal. They have officially soiled the name Charger with this. I mean...it's the Dodge Intrepid's replacement, for...
