    If anyone regrets the new Bronco order and wants to go classic, I am happy to facilitate.

    Nice. Early 70s?

    We never got the roof off my dad's '67. It was pretty well painted on.

    Certainly not the most efficient thing in the world, but maybe we can own a "fun" car once in our lives, and it'd certainly hold three kids better.

    You mean a VW Bug-atti hit a Porsche and a Benz.
    I expect the Bug to show up on next seasons Wheeler Dealers,

    The “one of” Aston Martin Bulldog was in storage and it’s now being restored....looks a lot like a DeLorean DMC-12.

    2021 V6 Tacomas will have dual zone climate control. wifey's 2008 Camry had that. it's good to see Toyota is trickling down that 13yr old tech to models other than TRD with certain packages.

    that said...

    2021 Tacoma is now priority #1 for me.

    Toyota has a long history of doing the bare minimum. If they're selling well, why bother making them better?

    The MR2 Spyder, besides looking cartoonish, had enormous potential for an inexpensive sports car, great chassis and would pull over 1G with no mods other than higher performance tires. It used the engine from the base Celica, with 140hp. That was just enough for it to be just a bit faster than a Miata, it's competition. Of course Toyota also had the Celica GTS's 180hp engine available (same block and engine mounts and everything, just added variable valve timing basically) that they could have easily put in the MR2 Spyder. But did they? Nah.

    And now they have the new Supra. Compared to the last generation, which came out in '93, the new one is 100lbs lighter and has an extra 15hp. And it's not really even a Toyota, it's a BMW Z4 with different logos and bunch of fake vents and scoops. The new one is quicker, but with 22 years to think about it since it was discontinued in '98 we all hoped for more.

    A concern with the DeLorean was that if you rolled it upside down it would be impossible to open the doors to get out. That was one reason I never bought one.

    Any DeLorean driver right now is a retard. Why would you decide to stay in 2020 ?

    Isn't this every car though? I mean, assuming you don't have enough grip and/or CG height to flip the thing on it's roof?

    Outside of an iconic movie appearance the DeLorean was a dog to actually drive. It's over weight and under powered. My grandpa had a clean one when I was a kid. He did have an emergency hammer though in case it ever flipped.

    The grip is the issue though haha. Getting over 1G is pretty rare for a street legal car on street legal tires. Quick googlefu brings up this from 2008 - https://www.caranddriver.com/feature...river-testing/

    True. But the MR2 Spyder came out in '01 though!

    Anyhow, the point was, despite it's cartoonish looks the MR2 Spyder had potential to be really cool and could have had an extra 40hp right off the showroom floor without Toyota having to spend any more development money, they already had the engine, yet they didn't offer it even as an option. Doug has a good overview here. 2200lbs!
