Which car is the biggest #AOTD winner? (I have no idea, you guys can do the tallying) »
My first car was grandma's 1985 Peugeot 505. No power steering, no radio, no power windows, no air conditioning. No airbags, no ABS, no stability control, no crumple zones, none of that pussy shit. Flat white, royal blue velour interior, rear wheel drive.
It was automatic though.
If nothing else, it taught me how to… »
A Japanese company selling a chain driven car the size of a skateboard in the USA at the height of muscle cars. I'd say that's a bit of a risk. »
Not 100% sure if I've got all the details correct, but the urban legend about Ol' Dirty Bastard's arrest goes something like this: »
That's my left arm. Got it a month or two after my 505 caught fire and nearly killed me. Say what you want about Peugeot, but I'll guarantee I'm the only guy ever with this logo permanently embedded in his flesh. »
Wow. I've been waiting for this to be a QOTD..... I think the simplest thing that you numbskulls can do is REMEMBER WHAT YOU LEARNED IN DRIVER'S ED!! »
what're you talking about? it's a "set-it-and-forget-it" feature. Either turn it on, or turn it off - there's no reason to turn it on and off every time you park. »
Buddy of mine used to have a MazdaSpeed 3. I really didn't care much for the car, I thought it was cheaply built, hideously ugly and had a shit-ton of torquesteer, but the sound the blow-off valve made blasting through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel (err.... Hugh L. Carey Tunnel?) was downright incredible. »
my first car was a 505 sedan (saloon?). All these years later, and I'm still a sucker for oddball european crap. »
Those little harmless white spiders lived in the space between the headliner and the sheet metal in my '03 Honda Civic. Not the worst thing in the world, but when they would lower themselves down inches from my face while I was doing 80 on the Thruway...... not too cool. »
There are quite a lot of "holy shit I can't believe somebody still has one of these" cars like this one in Manhattan. I attribute it to the fact that people who live in the city rarely actually drive their cars and keep their cars garaged long term. This Corolla probably has less than 30k miles on it. »
Destination charges are posted in big black print on the bottom right-hand corner of window stickers. They're part of the MSRP, and part of the total taxable amount. They're not a dealer add-on, they're a manufacturer add-on, and while TV advertisements, print advertisements, and web advertisements don't necessarily… »
New car dealers write up those "addendum prices" and "market adjustments" for one simple reason - to bring the customer down to earth. Suggesting that the car is worth $25,000 more than its MSRP is an extreme example of a very common practice when a new product launches; its a way for the dealer to sort of "warn" the… »
