    4wd is a must. Not all of us can have the fancy AWD like Mr. Crane.

    So, the new Corvette C8 is having...troubles. The next-gen GM electrical system is full of bugs, the frame is twisting, and even the glass engine cover is breaking. They've missed to major shows where normally the car would be shown. Now, we have a story about a C8 test mule, goobled up with disguise paint, breaking down at a gas station. They couldn't get it to restart, sent GM engineers out, they couldn't get it to start, then had to tow it...covered in a black tarp.

    Jalopnik is a fun car site and they had a good article on this latest GM debacle. My favorite quote of the piece:

    It even had to be covered in a black tarp and towed away, rather unceremoniously, like an old Vega wrapped in its death-shroud

    It's a shame Ford's getting out of the car business... ending this year are the Taurus SHO, the Fusion Sport, and the Focus RS. All 3 very capable performance vehicles. All that will be left, love it or hate it, will be the Mustang.

    Re: The sR Car Thread

    Oh yeah, that is a good point, I read about this recently and was shocked. Is America really that in love with SUVs/Trucks? I heard whispering of doing away with Chrysler. What do they have, one model? Makes me wonder what will happen during the next gas crunch and they all circle the drain again.

    I priced out a modern truck, comparably equipped to my 2005, and was appalled at the price. Literally, about 6K more than just inflation alone. I know there are more features, though, and more safety crap, and more nanny crap... and more shit to fail

    Look at used F150s. There's some real deals on those. ...with low miles.

    So, there's a basic tuner kit for the SHO that includes a programmer, thermostat, and MAP sensor. Requires 93 octane gas, bumps the horsepower to over 400, and drops the 1/4 mile times into the 12s. It's around $600.

    Ford is going to stop making most of it's car lineup? wow.

    Though, I'm rather fond of SUVs and Trucks - for the usefulness, ride height (you know, when you're turning left and can actually see the traffic because other side turning left is blocking the view?), safety etc.
