    Hummer EV unveiling this fall (spy pic too)

    At it's price point, limited garage space is not an issue to its target demographic.
  2. That's what my 351w gets.... but with 1/4th the HP. Maybe I should do a Hellcat swap 🤔
  3. I still think there's a lot of reasons to wait if you don't need a car right away, and no x-plan seals the deal for me. The 2021 already looks amazing... so just think what's around the corner with Warthog and who knows what else ford can come up with in the next 3 years? New options and features, more paint choices, white tops maybe? And by then the aftermarket should be churning out some really cool stuff too.
  4. I don't know how feasible such a system would be but it would be cool if they had some kind of adjustable, air-type suspension that lowers and raises the bronco as needed. Lower it for parking and low overhangs, better MPGs on the highway... and raise it for off-roading.

    Considering buying some Ford Stock

    Which is smart. No future dividends or stock value if the company goes out of business.
  6. Maybe I was too sleepy when I first read this, or I'm just numb to the constant political doomsdaying from the "media" but that didn't even phase me at first. Now that I'm re-reading it, I kind of regret sharing this and giving them clicks. I just wanted to talk about a truck 🤔
  7. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Is Awesome Off-Road And Not So Great At Anything Else The way I see it, the Ram TRX is pretty much the truck equivalent of a supercar. It’s way more powerful than it needs to be, it’s never going to be used to its fullest potential by the vast majority of people who buy them, and making it really good at one discipline pretty much ruins its usability as a daily driver. Supercars are too stiff because they need to set a fast Nürburgring time. The TRX is too sloppy because it’s a 6,400 pound pickup built like a trophy truck. This is a technologically fascinating truck, utterly impressive in almost every way. But everything that makes it impressive also makes it feel tone deaf in the face of the reality of 2020. The real unemployment rate in America is over 26 percent, more Americans are behind on their car payments than ever and the majority of American adults have less than $1,000 in savings. Not to mention higher vehicle grille heights are killing pedestrians, though not nearly as many as will be killed by global climate change. But other than that, the truck is... you know... fine. https://jalopnik.com/the-2021-ram-1500-trx-is-awesome-off-road-and-not-so-gr-1845446807

    Considering buying some Ford Stock

    Not confident in Fords long-term plan at this point?
  10. I actually never expected Ford to honor the X-plan for the first year. Think about it, they're completely sold out... that's money in the bank. Why sell it for cheap when you KNOW you're going to sell every damn vehicle you build? I do think it's a bit greedy and unethical on their part... but it makes pretty good business sense. Hopefully it's only for MY21, because I'm going to be really mad if I can't eventually use my X-plan on one...
  11. Considering the state of the industry where you sometimes have to buy your own spare tire, it makes you wonder if some makers will start charging for a physical manual?

    What do you guys think of the new Corvette?

    I'm a Ford guy too! So I get it... but I also just love cars! It makes life more enjoyable that way, but also frustrating when you wish you could own all of the cars.

    What do you guys think of the new Corvette?

    I guess it's also kind of a weird time for a car like this to come out, huh? Mid-engine itself is an oddity... but at the same time you have buyers and the market looking at getting rid of engines all-together! I'm sure one-day my daily driver will be electric, but until then I would really love an old school RWD monster like the Viper or something interesting and exotic like a midengine sports car with a Mighty V8 or V10
