Need a VIN checked? Search the catalog for an existing VIN check thread before making your own.

Some models here and there are outperforming the Germans, sure, but for overall fit and finish, luxury and features, is America even close to European standards?

The US has an opportunity to lead on electric cars, that's basically a total reconfiguration of the car industry.

Otherwise, no, I don't understand why we're not even competitive with the Germans. We always hear about high wages and costs problems, but hasn't the Euro been worth more all this time? How do they get away with it?

Should I get my car out of impound or just leave it? It's a 1995 mercedes s500 sedan, front bumper cover is messed up, one side mirror is broken, front leather seat is ripped, some interior paneling and the center console is fucked up from when the cops searched it, scratches all over the paint and sun faded paint, 160k miles, sometimes doesn't start right away I believe it's the battery connections, they want $700 to get it out of impound. Should I just leave the thing and get a new car or get it out? I'm really fucking tired of this car and every time something breaks a replacement part is expensive and labor is expensive if it's something I can't do. It's $50 worth of oil per oil change and it burns up the oil. One in better condition with less miles went for 1080 on eBay and to get it in good condition just a new bumper cover costs $200 and no junk yard has this model of car. If you were me would you pay the $700 to get it out and have a working car for cheap or drop a few gs and get a more reliable and fuel efficient car that is cheaper to get parts for? Or get it out and try to sell it for more than 700? Or they said I could get stuff out of it at the tow yard. So I was thinking maybe go there strip everything valuable out of it and tell them to keep it.

Bought it last April for $2700. Had 65,000 miles on the clock and I managed to put another 2,300 or so on her having it as my daily driver April to October. She does fine on the highway up to approximately 70. The only time it left me stuck was when the rubber diaphragm in the zenith carb tore, which strangled the engine in terms of air flow, but I was able to limp it back home at 15mph. Of course it leaks a little oil from the valve cover, can vaporlock on an 85 degree day if you try to start it right after a drive, but I haven't had major problems yet.

How in the FUCK did this autist get so rich? He graduated from college in 2011 age 22, and somehow became the youngest manager in Porsche NA history. Then a few years later he is buying exotics, houses, etc and fucking around with a low-paying writings gigs. Even being a manager at porsche, how did he make so much $$$ in a few years to basically be able to retire and buy a lot of exotics?

btw his car review videos are pretty good

WRX wagon. It's the least cop magnet-y of the lot and offers a fair bit of practicality. A 2-door GC8 would look way cooler but it's like a lighter WRX wagon with less space to store shit.

The 200SX and FC also lose out on practicality and you'd be hounded relentlessly by the revenue raisers in the 200SX. The FC wouldn't be a bad choice but the noise would be a dead giveaway as to what it was.

With that said they're all pretty cool cars.

No 4 door, you had to get something more pigfat for that.

US only got Type S, which was not as fast or as fun and US spec Type R.

Head lamps and tail lamps were reviled and one of the big reasons cited for the refresh.

TL;DR The DC5 Type R was a faster car, but the Integra line as a whole suffered.

I think the best thing about the dc2 type r is that it wasn't just a better engine and better suspension.
They seam welded the chassis to make it stronger.
That alone makes it pretty incredible for a variant of a mass production car

good awd with decent clearance

Maybe don't use a piece of shit computer

I can load them all perfectly fine

The first generation Mustang debuted in 1964. It cost $2,368. Adjusted for inflation, that's the equivalent of $18,105.
Depending on engine option, it made 240 HP, and could tune up much higher.

In 1969, the price of a new V8 Dodge Charger was $3,126. There was a slightly cheaper V6, and a more expensive Magnum option so we're doing the V8. Adjusted for inflation this is $20,188. This charger put out 330 HP.

The higher end price for the Camaro in 1969 was $2,850. This equates to $18,406 today. Its power was comparable to the Mustang.

The current Mustang, at the lower end, produces 300HP. Bare-bones, the very cheapest it can be had for is $25,185.

The price of a new Challenger, cheapest it can be bought for is $27,995. That's with a 292 HP V6, at which point it's dubious to call it a Muscle car.

The new Camaro? $26,305 for a turbo 4-banger bringing 275 HP.

This is why Sports Cars are no longer for the young. A negligible margin of difference in performance, and a fucking Valley of difference in price. And when I write "Bare Bones" I mean it. These price-points are for the absolute chinciest configurations the manufacturers will allow, configurations you won't find at any but the most esoteric of dealers, and unless you just want a pretty commuterbox, you're gonna wind up paying between thirty-five to fifty grand. What the fuck happened?

There's a reason Ford never homologated them for Nascar: they're too heavy. They could've undergone the exact same homologation process they did with the Boss 429, but they didn't, and it's because the engine is flawed. It might also have something to do with the ten foot timing chain not being that great for extended high-RPM use.

Never undestood yank obsession with big blocks the cars could barely turn a corner and they already had great small blocks like the Chrysler 340 and 351 Cleveland. In Australia straight sixes like the 265 Hemi gave the V8s a good run for their money as well
>>
Aren't all three, Challenger, Mustang and Camaro, all putting out over 300HP in their V6 versions? The Challenger was rated at 305HP since like 2011 and I think the other two are also over 300HP.

>>16501816
In terms of energy density, most gas is close to 25 times more energy per unit of mass. There's also the misconception that high output electric motors light enough to be put on a car are particularly efficient. They aren't too much more than a modern ice. Then there's also the issue of all the weight you're carrying, necessitating more power at all times. It's ultimately nonsense that preys on people's feelings and lack of analysis regarding the proposition. but let's not forget
