Volkswagen unwraps new Caddy Racer at Birmingham van show {Autoblog}

Apr 14th 2011 9:20AM Agreed. And am I the only one who can't explain why I want a Ford Transit so much? Something about funky little delivery trucks make me wish I owned my own business to justify buying one, and then dressing it up in some clever graphics of shameless self-promoting.

Ford discloses exec salaries, Mulally package worth over $26M {Autoblog}

You do realize Ford did NOT take bailout funds, right?

Are 2007-2008 Jeep Wrangler SUVs spitting up gas? {Autoblog}

Mar 14th 2011 10:48PM This is NOT a new issue. My 2005 Wrangler did this on every single fill-up, starting around 40K miles. 44 pages of this issue here - http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f176/have-fuel-spill-problems-like-many-us-submit-complaint-force-recall-974337/

I loved my Wrangler, but little things like this, and the stealership claiming there was nothing wrong (basically insulting my intelligence, as if you can screw up pumping gas) made me lose a lot of faith in the brand.

The Lawbringer: 5 ways trade chat can get you in trouble {WoW}

Oct 1st 2010 7:37PM There are those days, once in a blue moon, where things just haven't been going well and the only thing that brings a smile to my face is trolling trade chat, posing as a total noob. It usually goes something like this.

> Creates Rogue, named something obvious like McStabbin <
> Runs as level one to the nearest city <
/2 Hello *Servername*! How's everyone doing tonight?
/2 I have a few questions about rouges if someone can help me!
/2 What level can we train polearms, so that I can extend my backstab range?

And I'll include other classics, like will too many weapons make my bags heavy, if my poisons aren't on my weapons will it make me sick and lower my heath, and why do people keep seeing me when I'm stealthed.

Most nights, my final question is... "How much spirit should I stack, because I know that spirit helps with groups." Someone will scream at me, "HOW THE @%$# DOES IT HELP WITH GROUPS?!", to which I'll reply, "You know, spirit. Like, GOOOO TEAM!".

At this point all of trade is pretty much telling me to end my life, and I'm smiling ear to ear, knowing I've done my part.

Stay classy.

Ford's Mulally: "We cannot make a business case" for composites {Autoblog}

Sep 19th 2010 9:42PM I'm no CF expert by any means, but I'd imagine repairs to dings/dents/cracks would range from difficult to impossible, requiring in most cases a total replacement of the item.

Report: Next Mazda RX-8 to use Sky G rotary {Autoblog}

Sep 10th 2010 10:55PM I had the awesome opportunity to test drive an RX-8 at Zoom-Zoom Live in DC a few years back. And by test drive, I mean autocross. That is by far the easiest car to drive hard and fast that I've ever come across, and I've driven quite a few. The sweet sound of the wankel as it races to the redline, the effortless flickability of the suspension... I hope that engine, and that car, are around for a long, long time.
