I was interested in a Sky Redline a while back, and had done a bunch of research on them. If I remember correctly the "safest" model year to go with was the 2008 my, based on reliability and other fixes GM had made to the car over its lifespan (Not all Sky/Solstices are equal). Finding a 2008 for under 10k that… » 7/25/14 1:04pm Friday 1:04pm

I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna go there. I don't care what kind of flack I get for saying this either. The first thing I said to myself when I saw this was "Lincoln" - but not "Lincoln" in a bad way. Vehicles like this are what FoMoCo needs to be giving to Lincoln. It doesn't need to be as "Luxury" as the Aston (v12, the… » 7/24/14 8:58pm Thursday 8:58pm

I can see this quite easily in snow country, my 01' Dakota (which has been a northern truck all its life) blew a brake line from salt corrosion, I did have a medium size load in the bed, but thankfully it did it in a parking lot and I was able to stop and pull over without hitting anyone or feeling in danger, if I had… » 7/09/14 2:02pm 7/09/14 2:02pm

As someone who was hit by a Wrangler with Mass. plates, I can confirm this statement. Guy made a right on red from a left turn lane and "didn't see me" in the right turn lane. Mind you if he hadn't had hit me he would have pulled out into traffic and been hit. » 6/28/14 7:33pm 6/28/14 7:33pm

Sorry, it may be a Miata (and I love Miata's) but there is just too much wrong with this to be anything more than a novelty. Not even a good novelty at that. Wheels are in the wrong spots, craftsmanship looks pretty horrible and it just screams quick hack job. I'd think a Ranger would have been a better base for this… » 6/23/14 5:55pm 6/23/14 5:55pm

Out of state plates and a inattentive PT Cruiser driver who appeared to be texting.. This is the one thing I hate about the NoVA area, you have a lot of out of state people who are not familiar with the roads, and are "too important" to concentrate on things like driving, because they need to get the next text or… » 6/21/14 2:59pm 6/21/14 2:59pm

Had one of those as my first car (bought it and sold it before I was old enough to legally drive.) It was a 1929' A, 3 spare tires, front tool box, rumble seat, and would like to over heat at the thought of a hill. I miss that car, it sure was fun and turned heads. » 6/04/14 11:39pm 6/04/14 11:39pm
