Because a corvette is better in every measurable way.

I do think the Gto is very unique in the us market and will always hold its value, so if you “need” a “backseat”, and prefer the GTO styling over the vette, nothing wrong with that. Under styled muscle cars like the GTO should be more popular

They have a big price premium, they were released here as Holden monaros. I have a 6L Commodore ss that is based on the 6.0L monaros , same breaks, suspension m, engine and rims

reminds me of the 2.0 diesel m-sport bmws here in the UK
masses want a sporty exterior without the sporty performance (and price tag)
The v6 in the camry puts out 300 horsepower, that's pretty strong
still slower than a diesel 3.0 BMW with less horsepower

Best shitboxes ever. Fellow canuck. I bought a 2000 5speed coupe for $400 when I was in high school from a drunk that lost his licence.
Sold the nigger tier subs and amp out of it for $300, and sold the nigger wheels on it for another $300. Drove it for 7 years doing absolutely nothing but maintenance. Had over 500k on it when it was too rusty to bother fixing and I scrapped it for $150.

1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
The problem is that I'm not controlling a spaceship, if I wanna turn off the AC it's extremely clunky to tap a screen 20 times, old school buttons and levers didn't get old or ugly, but for some reason car manufacturers think otherwise.
Sounds like you should have bought an older car.
Putting a button there costs more than slapping a touch screen in there and doing everything in software.
I agree OP. I don't own a car with touchscreen HVAC controls and I don't plan on buying one. Just wait until this shit is voice controlled, fuck the future.

My centercap on one of my wheels kept shaking around and it wouldn't come out with a suction cup. So I took some q tips and gorilla glue and no more annoying shaking.
Put a metal clamp around the rear muffler, after the stock mount rotted off, making my muffler scrape the floor.

Drove around like that for 3 months before I mounted a new exhaust.
A little piece of plastic broke off of my brake pedal which made the brake lights stay on constantly. I pulled a button off my jacket and taped it on there and it's still doing the job a year later.

Exactly. If I'm going to drive a stang, it better have enough horses so that when I floor it it spins out of control.

Seriously though, why are there 1000 videos of Mustangs losing control right after they take off, but hardly any Camaro, Challenger, Corvette, etc.? Is it the car or do Mustangs attract morons at a higher rate than most penis extending vehicles?

I like your choice. However if I was picking in a similar pool of cars it would be the 037. Same sort of price as well.
Never appealed to me. But I'd definitely accept a delta integrale if I ever get offered one for free.

Jesus, I guess you have to be going at a relatively low speed with that braking potential to get it to go down.

HVAC Controls in Infotainment

How do we stop Manufacturers from having put HVAC controls inside the infotainment system? What part of HVAC is information or entertainment? It's a vital part of a car interior which needs physical human-machine interaction than taking your eyes of the road to control the temperature. It's beyond stupidity to me and many.

Look at how Acura beautifully integrated HVAC controls into the dash without making it stick out like a sore thumb. I mean who even thought the HVAC is a sore thumb sticking out. Fuck Volvo, Tesla and others who are pedaling this trend. Lexus is also partially known to include some HVAC controls in their infotainment. JUST STOP you fucks. Who the fuck asked?!

Honda/Acura are terrible at HVAC controls though. Toyota is the only one left with any sense for it.

why do unis start with paper drafting when you can draft with SVG? doing drawings by hand is for texture based arts like oil paints and watercolors not for line drawings...
If you're talking about a planetary hydraulic type and not a DCT they're pretty fascinating.
I count at least 16 visible gears.
those cuts are all for weight reduction and space for coolant/oil to flow; nothing really mechanical about the pattern at all.
