Our Metro system has many, many, many flaws, but the design of our underground stations are not one of them. Take NYC or any of the older subway systems around the world, and you’ll quickly see the advantages to our stations. The columnless design in the main barrel and the super high ceilings just make it a better… » 4/21/15 10:08am 4/21/15 10:08am

One of the beautiful things about the NA 5.0 v8 in the previous XF was the sheer amount of torque available at such a low RPM range, not to mention the growl that engine has. It’s one of my favorite characteristics of mine. That being said, the 340hp v6 and the 380hp v6 options are more than ample for a car this size.… » 4/01/15 11:45am 4/01/15 11:45am

Interesting seeing the comments on this. I am not a fan of the XE's tail lights, and I can see that language being carried over to the XF here. The interior in the photos probably does not do it justice, however we'll have to see in person. I recently purchased a 2010 XF, and I can say that the interior pictures for… » 3/24/15 6:53pm 3/24/15 6:53pm

My Jag is trying to be as typical Jaguar as it can be, however it has a long way to go to catch up to my most unreliable vehicles. The current winner is my 86' 560SL. Yes this thing is built like a tank, and yes certain aspects of it are vastly over-engineered and bullet proof. However other parts are made of fairy… » 3/18/15 12:37am 3/18/15 12:37am

Random Trivia:
This aircraft is owned by the same company (International Air Response) that flew the C130 in the infamous Dark Knight Rises airplane hijack scene, same livery and all. The tail number for DKR was N121TG, however this is N119TG. (Sigh I am always in the gray lol)

This is one of my bigger fears too, not too long ago we had a rather severe accident where I live, a 100+ year old oak fell over, unexpectedly and unprovoked, taking out an unfortunate man in his CL600 AMG. The 40 ton tree was rotten, and it happened to go at *just that moment*. Scary stuff. » 2/12/15 2:25pm 2/12/15 2:25pm

- I don't like BMW's, I think they are boring and dull in both styling and interior, despite how they drive.
- I have a strange fetish for the most unreliable cars I can possibly buy.
- I think manual transmissions are fun for the weekend, but I'd rather commute in an automatic.
- I secretly want a brand new econo-can… » 2/12/15 1:00pm 2/12/15 1:00pm

I have always been a fan of Dodge and Ram trucks, and I would absolutely love to own a Longhorn edition. However this refresh is absolutely horrible, the crosshair grille was iconic, as was the muscular look they had, now it's all flash and generic gills. While trucks may have had their brand name in big ass letters… » 2/12/15 10:07am 2/12/15 10:07am

I'm going to agree with everyone here - this is clearly a case of a solution needing a problem. One could say the same with the differences between a console stick style automatic selector that most automatics have had since the 60's and column shifts. My car has a rotary dial, it took me all of 3 seconds to get used… » 1/30/15 12:54am 1/30/15 12:54am

"Coolest vehicles" may be a bit of a stretch, they are very impressive though.

I think many people may say the Oshkosh ARFF units may be the coolest, but for at least my local airport.. I gotta give it to these the Mobile Lounge / Plane Mate (vintage photo because awesome.. they look the same today though.) » 11/09/14 4:45pm 11/09/14 4:45pm

I love this place, whenever I drive down to Florida I usually plan a side trip on the way to Unclaimed Baggage, lots of good things to find for usually dirt cheap prices. Myself or friends have picked up iPhones, Kindles, Camera gear (tilt shift lens) and other doo-dads. Worth the trip indeed. » 10/15/14 10:06pm 10/15/14 10:06pm
