To henk's point, is the second-hand market in (Western) Europe strong, or do the laws (and perhaps culture) favor new goods?

Apropos of nothing, I would like to include this picture I took as it...

I can't say I know much of the provenance of this car, so let me make a straw man, but can you see why some might not want to have one of the Silver Arrows that was built by slave labor in their...

Certainly. Add in New Englander's antipathy towards cars and you have generally cheaper cars because they're cheaper to replace and less-durable goods than they are at home. That and access to...

There were a lot of them when I was growing up. Even with Californians' penchant for foreign cars, the climate was so benign that these old hulks hadn't rotted away. They outlived their planned...

I dig the color in the first four pics. It's interesting that Toyota seems to be dumping the well(ish)-known TRD branding for the much more-obscure Gazoo stuff. Maybe it plays well in Japan, but the...

I like my (partially) electric car!

I'm not quite as retrograde as you. I think the Challenger is a pretty-lazy mishmash of parts (true to muscle-car heritage, I'll admit) that isn't particularly evocative because it sets its sights so...

I think he means that specific chassis, which is indeed a rarity. That's a lot of abuse.

Connecticut, unfortunately, but I spend a good deal of time up here. Four months a year or so.

Yeah, it's lovely this time of year; especially when the F1 madness subsides.

I can't tell if this is real or not, but if it is, I agree: good riddance.

I like that it's a complete car; the Alfa 4C has some really half-assed bits to it. Still, I'm not sure which I prefer. I like them both.
