Many cars had abysmal performance in the 1970s and early 80s .  It was a sign of the times as mentioned by @horndog .  We can thank emissions regulations, oil embargos, fuel shortages, angry consumers who were tired of waiting in long lines at the pump, etc., for manufacturers providing vehicles with more emissions equipment, smaller engines, and lower performance in the 1970s and early 1980's.

Three on the tree.  You actually had to shift gears on the column shifter.  Bench seats bro!

Three in the tree for the win.

There's a lot of back reading to catch up on. For those who asked, my mini is a '13 John Cooper Works GP. Fun little car and it gets more use than the GT cars - you can park it anywhere, doesn't take up space, awesome fuel consumption, and the fun part of its performance envelope is attainable on the street at semi-legal speeds

Regarding older cars, I think we all glamorize past cars but may change our minds if we experience them again. My dad had an '80 Datsun 200sx that I thought was the coolest thing ever because the seatbelt mouse gave you the seatbelt and a female voice told you the door was still open. And I thought my '93 Corolla with a 120-hp 5-speed was one of the fastest, smoothest shifting cars on the road at the time.

But bench seats? Unequivocally awesome. Two words - road head

Apparently in Japan those are throw aways.

I'm surprised we haven't seen a post from Ramubrah about his man Elon and his exploding rocket. I assume he is on his way to Cape Canaveral to lend his "shoulder".

I followed it live. Helium pressure issue and the LOx and RP1 were caught in between. Shit happens and we got 4th of July a few months late.

Sorry, I thought this was 'cars we drive', and I recall being one of the last ones posting a car we drive. Correct me if I'm wrong.

How does this we drive work? Do I come visit you or do you ship it to my place, when its my time? I'm leaning towards the later.

Sadly the Elon's boy toy is around 2200 kg and a bitch to ship via FedEx. You're always welcome to visit me in Si Valley and share a glass of wine after we take it for a spin. smile.gif

Put it in a 20ft those aren't that expensive. I doubt they will let me in the country.

I drove past a Tesla model X event yesterday. I was a bit jealous, the car was odd looking, but it was at a really nice restaurant.

Yeah. I think my love affair is with the insane level of obsession to technical detail that some companies have. This does tie into my posts a few pages back about how I need to get laid and the other story about Nissan Leaf girl.

I say this, lying on my couch, watching Boardwalk Empire while on SF and doing little to improve my lot in life. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
