I'm a born and raised New Yorker and I just moved to SF. I have to chime in and respectfully disagree with ya on the NYC transit system. Looking at SF, they do a lot of things better here. I rode the subway in Manhattan for 30 years and it's true that the system is the largest and most extensive in the US and… » 7/24/14 1:01pm Thursday 1:01pm

I don't mean to nit pick but would kill Lockheed to have it's employees building what's being advertised as this super advanced fighter of tomorrow to wear a uniform or something. At least for the press photos? After all the taxes we've given to this program, feels weird that our "best" fighter is being built by BBQ… » 7/10/14 3:44pm 7/10/14 3:44pm

It's ironic that probably the most unreliable 4x4 ever made is one of the most iconic expedition vehicles to the point people build replicas of them and charge a premium. Meanwhile, you can pick up an 89 rover for around 2k fairly easily. As for the Great Divide expedition.. you could drive an AWD crossover on most… » 7/09/14 5:38pm 7/09/14 5:38pm

I think it is. I know auto makers have tried to sue the Chinese companies producing the knockoffs but the Chinese government keeps dismissing them saying "they don't see the resemblance" or something like that. Total corrupt bullshit.. it's unfortunate. » 4/22/14 12:07pm 4/22/14 12:07pm

I love Porsche's and I even own one but am I wrong in seeing this as just a 997 GTS with the modern Fuchs (which, last I checked, is an option on any 911 now) and stripes? No custom exhaust, more power, different interior, nothing? Just stripes and factory wheels? And the number plate inside of course.. » 4/21/14 7:44pm 4/21/14 7:44pm

Nobody should buy a Land Rover because they did the research and determined "it's the best car". If anyone comes to that conclusion, they are just dumb. While it sucks and it's annoying that the car was a lemon.. it's Land Rover. This is what gives them personality supposedly. Because one day when everything does… » 2/26/14 11:53am 2/26/14 11:53am

I kinda get all the testing.. need a somewhat controlled environment to repeatedly fine tune the electronics but I've watched the Ford videos and the Ram videos and honestly, when testing reliability I don't see why the don't just give the truck to a couple young 20 something year olds and let them loose in Moab or… » 2/26/14 10:27am 2/26/14 10:27am
