The lower your car is, the more screwed you will be when someone hits you from the side. Their bumper will hit you ABOVE where your reinforced crash structure is. Basically much more likely to be injured and your car totaled in accidents. » 7/23/14 10:41pm Wednesday 10:41pm

My heart is at GT2 out of all of them. It even had my dad's Accord (which was later mine) that I drove so much in the game when I was a kid, although the game had the sportier SiR trim with its more hp and higher revving engine, which subsequently made me mod my Accord to visually mimic its sportier trim. Both my… » 7/23/14 2:39am Wednesday 2:39am

If we didn't salt our roads up in the Northern US, a lot of these vehicles would still be prevalent... *sigh* At least the salt keeps our emmissions in check with people dumping their cars for newer ones when the rust starts coming. » 7/21/14 5:17pm Monday 5:17pm

If the US & Canada had access to the global market, what cars would you…

If we truly were the Land of the Free(TM) and had access to cars around the world, what cars would you expect to see in greater numbers in certain places of the USA?

Why would they want to spend money essentially developing two different cars? I hope that free trade deal harmonizes several of… » 6/02/14 10:14am 6/02/14 10:14am

The other day driving home at night, I was feeling relaxed as I looked down at my old Accord's turquoise-colored gauges. What's interesting is the psychology behind colors and why BMW and Audi chose for theirs to light up red or orange-ish at night, knowing that cooler colors are often associated to have a calming,… » 5/28/14 11:08pm 5/28/14 11:08pm

Pretty much how I feel. I drive a mint low mileage 5th gen in that color, but in sedan form. I can't complain. Quality, refinement, and feedback are pretty good compared to other cars in its class for that era. Abundance of soft touch materials too (mine is leather). But I'm getting bored of it and, as my SN suggests,… » 5/16/14 12:15am 5/16/14 12:15am
