    They ruined a Huracan, for this?!

    https://www.motorauthority.com/news/1114271...image=100643008 While it’s not secret I wasn’t a fan of the Huracan early on, i’ll say to destroy one for this seems even a bit much for my tastes. I’m sure someone somewhere likes it, but man, just no. “What the fcuk have I done here...” The Ares Project Panther, apparently a take on the incredible De Tomaso Pantera based on the Lamborghini Huracan. It looks like a frumpy NSX with a strong dash of stupid for good measure. Anyone cracking open their check book for this beauty?

    My Method to Open the Headlights for Cleaning

    Awesome write-up! Thanks for sharing this with the community. I'm sure there have been plenty (Who haven't said it) but found this interesting and helpful!
  3. Doug does A LOT of vehicle reviews. His channel is stocked with a TON of content. He can be a bit dry if you aren't used to it, but never lacking in information. There is a ton of detail and information on his reviews. And he covers a bit of neat little nuances that others overlook, in my opinion. Check out his Performante review below.
  4. Make the thread, I for one would love to read it. PM me if you have reservations, but I think it would be interesting and informative.
  5. Usually, when I look at the Collezione pieces, I shake my head and wonder what kind of knob is genuinely excited about what they put out. Nothing is without exception, however. The latest Collezione is the least offensive I've seen yet! I'm not a fashion expert by any means, but I've rarely seen this stuff out at events. A handful of times I'd wager. I digress, this seems to be some decent stuff that wouldn't brand you a total fanboy in public. But we need to talk about those shoes...Oi. Alright, check it out. I'm digging the overnight bag and backpack as my favorites, and a few of the shirts for sure.
  6. Maybe I walked into it right as things started making changes, but now it seems that the majority of them are worse click-bait than ever before. And on top of that, every one of these idiots is "giving away a car!" or some bull. Just buy a raffle ticket. I won't shame the hustle, but it's SOOO drawn out. I think the Stradman has been giving away his McLaren for like 6 months! VV seems to be spiraling down the click-bait trail a lot more these days. The "Taking Delivery of a New Ferrari" is the last 5 minutes of a 25-minute video and on top of which is a press loaner for a week

    The Least Offensive Collezione Yet - Fall/Winter 2019

    I find it harder to find decent clothes that don't scream the brand or label like a siren!

    The Least Offensive Collezione Yet - Fall/Winter 2019

    The shoes may be good quality, I just wish they looked better. But obviously, it's a subjective evaluation. I have some t-shirts and a hoodie, but you'd barely know what they were. I prefer to keep it that way, but I'm weird.
  9. Greetings everyone! Just a heads up to let you know that this evening between the hours of 10-11pm EST the site may be down for some updates. So no need to be alarmed. If things go sideways, we'll make an update page and communicate it through our social channels. Thanks, guys and gals!
  10. Maybe they gutted the interior for weight-savings? I'd imagine a RWD, lightweight version of the EVO would be a handful of fun to navigate.
  11. Sorry for the delayed response FrankN, There have been some new measures go into place to hopefully keep a lot of those post from showing up. We'll still get them from time to time, but I think it'll be far less than when you experienced the rash of them for a bit. Thanks for the support, again, sorry for the delayed response.
  12. I've never been a huge Bentley guy myself, but that's probably due to limited exposure. However, the Bentley configurator is a neat way to see what some of the new ones look like. If you're looking to burn some time, check it out. I played with it a little bit today and found some appealing setups. https://www.bentleymotors.com/en/misc/car-configurator.html

    Credit score question...

    I'd stop dealing with BoA, but refinancing with another bank would probably ding you again. But i have no idea.

    2020 Shelby GT500 - Photos Inside

    No manual transmission, only a DCT, more than 700 horsepower and composite goodness galore. Interestingly enough, the claimed 0-60 is 3.5 seconds and a quarter mile time in the 11's... That doesn't seem THAT impressive for what it is, but maybe I'm just jaded.

    2020 Shelby GT500 - Photos Inside

    I get the weird feeling Chevrolet is moving out of the performance car section. They'll retain the Corvette, and maybe Camaro, but it just doesn't seem that they have the focus on it that Dodge and Ford (second mos) are doing. They seem to half-assed it when it's not a Corvette more often then not. The G8 and SS were rebadged Holdens. I loved both those cars, but it doesn't take much creativity or initiative to rebadge a car and try and pass it off. Performance buyers can see through that. Riddle me this, Dodge can sell performance sedans by the boatload, but GM made a better one (at least in my opinion, the SS) and couldn't get a handful of years out of it! It'll be interesting to see. The Germans do a fantastic job of performance sedans and coupes, but the price-point is higher, and even if they come in at the same price. Would you buy a Chevrolet or a Mercedes with equivalent power outputs?

    2020 Shelby GT500 - Photos Inside

    The 2013 I drove a bit, genuinely scared me as a car (granted it was a press car with bald tires ) but I've wanted one ever since. Dodge is definitely King of the Domestic pile. It just looks like Ford is trying to milk the Shelby name as much as they can. To me, they've backed themselves in the corner, the Ford GT is better, and the Mustang chassis can't handle this kind of power. Stick to the GT350 style, better handling, less power and let the halo car be the horsepower/handling king. Hell, Dodge's land yachts run faster ET's without the composite goodies. It just doesn't make any sense. Although I still want a Redeye Hellcat in a Charger body (they don't make that combo sadly, I believe).

    2020 Shelby GT500 - Photos Inside

    After seeing the specs, I'm not overly impressed. I'd take a 2013-2014 GT500 over this any and every day of the week. And to be fair, it seems like the 700+ HP isn't very usable. I did read the hood pins were necessary to keep the composite hood down, so not entirely a cosmetic choice there. Swing and a miss maybe, time will tell.

    That'll be a fun car! Congrats. I'd love to pick up a big AMG sedan myself, I'm just not familiar enough with them to move forward. I'll be interested to see how yours goes!
