Ugly baby, but when the grow up they're still ugly but quit pleasant to use.

I couldn't get close enough to get in one to find out.

And I drove a Yugo. And two different Scouts. And I currently drive a 25 yr old Grand Cherokee. I'm no stranger to ugly vehicles.

With an ugly car there's no strife, drive happy for the rest of your life.

GC1 is giving up a U-joint, I think.

I sincerely hope it isn't something inside the rear-end.

Axle bearing wouldn't be too bad, but U-joints are easier.

It kinda clucks at low speed off-throttle, sorta like a front wheel drive when an axle bearing goes bad, but it sounds like it's coming from driver's side rear. Definitely the rear but the driver's-side-sound may be because that's the side I hang my head out while driving down the road. No tell-tale clanking going into gear, or on-and-off the gas.

An itty bitty Mazda...

And a 9 second Camaro...

That Mazda is just ugly.

Also the worst angle for a pic of a Camaro. The Camaro is a pretty slick car, but from that angle it's as ugly as a used found-on-the-ground jelly bean.

Also, Firefox is telling me I'm spelling Camaro wrong.

Meanwhile in Sweden...

Very cool.

A question to which I am dying to know the answer...

Ok, so I read this article about a company, SVE, who, for a steep price, will convert your Tahoe or Suburban to 810 or 1000hp. Yeah, yeah, sure, sure. Fuck all that.

At the bottom of that article there is a video clip showing the 2020 Silverado on the assembly line. With the tailgate upside down. In more than one place on the line.

It's driving me mad. Why, why are the tailgates upside down?! Google ain't got a clue.

The following is NOT a video player.

Maybe upside down to get better paint coverage on the overhang where the handle mounts, or inside the hole itself. Just a guess.

His Ford Escort runs on water.

It's mostly bullshit, you can't run a car on water, but it could be used as a booster on big diesels to cut emissions and increase fuel mileage. One reason is the big diesels run near constant RPM, or at least a small range.

Sharpie Marker vs. R33 Skyline GTR

Pretty talented, freehand.
