Kinda makes me wish I would have gotten to drive my Grandma's 92 Dynasty...:p
Those things were terrible to drive. They were almost twice the weight of their K-car parents and the design was blatantly *not* ready for that kind of stress.

Again - you and awful cars, wtf?

They look kind of neat.. until you realize that they would often get jammed in the closed position. They didn't help a whole lot at night when that happened...

The Sapporo is today taking on the role of a U-Haul truck. It can pretty much accommodate all of my gf's belongings.

Clarkson and May both admit that the new Jaguar XJ looks weird. When even the most ardent public British fanboys say this, that's something.

Wow. The new Holden Captiva looks like a Mitsubishi Outlander thats been punched in the face and then given plastic surgery by a drunk. And then drawn all over with shiny lipstick.

Ironic that Gillard would launch the Cruze in front of a hundred or so smiling workers whos very jobs have been placed under threat by her proposed Carbon tax.
