For some perspective, I grew up in the 1990's. The Eggo waffle box is extremely relevant, I promise.

It all started with the accumulation of little toy cars like Hot Wheels and the like from as far back as I could remember, although most were not brand names like Hot Wheels or MatchBox. Most were no name from what I… » 3/05/15 11:03pm Yesterday 11:03pm

Usually not know the conversion ratio? That's something that takes less than 30 seconds to Google. I've heard of some shenanigans at US DMV locations, but that is just trivial.

I would be beyond frustrated.

Even though, at this point it doesn't really matter.

I visited the show as well last week. I was lucky enough to speak with the salesman looking after the Lotuses (Lotii?) and he mentioned that this Esprit V8 is "brand new".

As in with very few km's on it, even though it's a 2001 (IIRC). It has also never been registered. They were asking for ~$90,000 IIRC. » 2/23/15 11:25pm 2/23/15 11:25pm

In the last week, I've been asked frequently by clients at work if I think Apple is going to make a car.

For some reason, I am slightly offended every single time. I seriously believe they will never make a car. Maybe push technology to be used in vehicles. But not a whole car.

If for some reason they actually do,… » 2/20/15 9:05am 2/20/15 9:05am

I believe the above is a good reason as well. I'd rather them delay it for several years than release a product that isn't ready and have the above happen. The same could be said for the NSX but that's a whole different ball game. I don't think anyone has ever tried making a… » 2/09/15 4:00pm 2/09/15 4:00pm

That large automakers have been sandbagging electric cars for decades and continue to do so as if they do not want them to work at all (Understandably so).

Why do they make them look so horrendous? Minus the Tesla Model S of course.

Just make them look like a normal car. » 2/09/15 12:41pm 2/09/15 12:41pm

You make a very good point. However, I only disagree with the host bit. I think they should keep them as long as they are willing. But that's my two cents.

I'd like to also add that I think we're used to it the hilarity and nonsense of the show. Even if some segments are now scripted. I believe we're accustomed to… » 1/27/15 4:38pm 1/27/15 4:38pm
