Has the Z car ever represented a nimble sports car for the everyman? They've always been bloated and somewhat on the expensive side. The 350Z/370Z was actually an improvement over the 300ZX. The 300ZX weighed in at 3,300 in an era when 3,000lbs was considered heavy. » 9/19/14 5:37pm Friday 5:37pm

I hate these things. I can appreciate utility, but these things strike me as lazy engineering and design. American automakers churned these things out for decades with minimal improvements because they had no competition. They could have built a better van, but couldn't be bothered until foreign competitors started… » 9/19/14 5:28pm Friday 5:28pm

Good printers, however, will always point out issues beforehand so that… » 9/17/14 11:07am Wednesday 11:07am

It's possible to address social problems and also fund the space program. If we stopped all progress in an attempt to address every little perceived injustice humanity would still be in the stone age. Furthermore, projects like the space program offer massive long term benefits for humanity in terms of technological… » 9/17/14 10:52am Wednesday 10:52am

I've seen these around and I think they're reasonably attractive. Although it's my cup of tea I can see the appeal. If I had to choose the worst looking car in the lineup it would be the CLA. That design is way too droopy, with details that don't feel proportional to the size of the car. Still, it isn't too bad. I do… » 9/16/14 2:19pm Tuesday 2:19pm
