how did cars(especially USDM models) become so fast? I watched a couple of Motorweek reviews last night and every car they brought up could go to 60 in like 7 seconds. I guess this is why burgers complain about the BRZ/GT86 so much? 30 years ago a passanger car would have been considered fast if they could reach 60 mph in under 10 seconds for comparison.

It also feels like displacement is king again since any japanese car(besides an r35) gets shit on by even a basic Mustang GT due to an NA v8 being able to output way more power than even a TT v6. The best exampe of this is the 300ZX vs the 400Z. The 300ZX was one of the fastest cars in its time BTFOing Corvettes and even Ferraris but the new Z car is just unable to do so. Turbos make as much of a difference as it used to. By now that 400Z is underpowered so they will have to make it as cheap as possible as otherwise it just would not be competitive

How is harbor freight welding equipment? i want to get into welding but i dont want to spend 5 grand doing it. id like to be able to do little shit on up to being able to do anything for any kind of consumer might need. not looking to go pro.

I was looknig at these particular ones because between the 2 units id get tig/stick arc and mig/flux core arc.

i dont want to waste my money either on something too weak or shitty. will these be able to handle any kind of home/farm/vehicle work i might encounter?

Too many people make the mistake of thinking they need to be able to weld nuclear pressure vessels to spec. You don't need this. You want to stick two pieces of metal together and have them probably not break. Harbor Freight shit is totally fine for that.

I actually kinda like it purely on the basis of how out of place it is in average american traffic, and being RWD. It's pretty awful otherwise, all the other subcompacts would get you only slightly worse MPG's or in some cases, better MPG's while being much more functional and probably cheaper to service
>>
I enjoy driving mine. It’s actually pretty roomy on the inside. Of all the micro cars it has the highest safety rating. Gas mileage is ok but you can get a 4 door Honda/Toyota with the same mpg or better. But the parking - man oh man - you can park anywhere. I pissed a mall cop off one time by parking next to a motorcycle in 1 spot.

Overall I wouldn’t buy mine again. There are better ones out there but I use mine for marketing and people look at it so it has been worth it.

Good for its home market but not in North America, and even then the Euro market has better superminis. It's just not competitive compared to other small cars, and the US is spacious enough that its small size will never actually be useful on a regular basis.

NONE

Really though, they're showing their age and some parts are getting hard to find, although you can almost always improvise something that works. Try to find one that's already had the transmission replaced or rebuilt because they have a very high failure rate.
Also torquing down the cam sprocket bolts without the proper tool sucks. There was also a FWD trim in later years so be aware of that when buying one.

It's safe to assume that if GM let the model stay the same for decades, they did not give a shit about safety. GM did not give a shit about crash tests until well into the 2010s, and they usually approach safety by just making the biggest fuckhuge vehicle on the market.

Don't expect great things of GM except for a few superstars.

99 geo metro here, no tach, my first manual, learned to judge when the shift based off of how fast I'm going combined with engine sound. Usually shifting to 2nd at about 15mph, then to 3rd around 25, which is usually my in town cruising gear. It's a 50hp 3 cylinder, doesn't like being in 1st and 2nd for long.
