Wrong Wheel Drive


I spotted this at an emissions testing place a while back. While I like seeing mentions of Typhoons and Eclipse GSXs, I can’t help but be disappointed at the idea of a bunch of “car guys” assuming that Corvettes are AWD (I wonder how suprised they are when they pop the hood and find out someone replaced the rotary engine with a small block?) and that Dodge calls its fast cars “TR” models.

I wish I would have had a better camera at the time, but the next time I go back, I’ll try and get a shot of whatever ridiculous inaccuracies they’ve got on the board nowadays. Here’s a close up:

I love anything you can drive. But I love it even more if it has a small block Chevy or Ford motor, a turbo, four wheel drive, is a hatchback, or was made in the 80s. My ideal car would be a combination of all of these things, and I’m working on building a time machine so I can go back to the 80’s and convince Chevy and Ford to collaborate on a twin-engine, single turbo 4×4 XR4Ti/Fox Mustang/Third Gen F-body and hide one in a mineshaft for me to recover in brand new condition. Look for a blog post about it just as soon as it happens. Or maybe it already did, and I’ve already posted about it in the future and the internet just needs to catch up with it.

Okay, my head hurts, never mind.

  1. Yeah it would be badass, people have been speculating about it since the 70’s and GM has toyed with the idea from time to time, but I think everyone is afraid of it spoiling the “American” image of a car throwing the rear out around corners or something.
