Kia Amantis are Appreciating! Kia Amantis are Appreciating!

Ok, not appreciating but the market is doing a heavy readjustment into the positives because as you hit rock bottom, you can either bounce back or go splat. Depreciation works this way and thankfully the Kia Amanti has a little spring in its breeze.

Back When You Could Beat a GTO with a Tire Iron in Pure Class Back When You Could Beat a GTO with a Tire Iron in Pure Class

Iconic. I think this other video has John DeLorean wailing on the bumper with (possibly) the engineering team.

Because hard work deserves a Kia. I need to show him my Wobbles Edition Amanti not by Kia at some point. Keep working towards that dream, kin.

Genesis Update Genesis Update

News at last! Genesis stopped bringing in cars from Korea to the US back in March, letting the 2018 model year inventory fade away. This also worked with the Annual Hyundai Motor Group Labor Strikes which, now typically, causes the RWD cars to pause production until wages are negotiated again.

Now is the time to make a move...

2020 Kia Telluride 2020 Kia Telluride

It looks like the Telluride is on the Sorento platform (just like the concept previewed) and will also be built in the Georgia plant alongside it’s little-older brother. The Theta II 2.0t (235-245 hp / 260 lb-ft) will probably be the base engine and pricing will likely come out identical to the Stinger range ($32,000…

Fortes are some of the cheapest cars to lease and this little wagon is already looking good.

Only Three People Bought an NSX in July Only Three People Bought an NSX in July

Ford delivered 7 of their $450,000 GTs in July, an incredible feat since Multimatic hasn’t even put up the tents yet. Even though priced to kill the BMW i8, no one can afford to buy an NSX. Doesn’t matter how much carbon you spec, you need to be ok with losing $70,000 (private sale) in a segment where the cars either…

After Five Years, the $140,000 Maserati Quattroporte GTS is Now Under $40,000 After Five Years, the $140,000 Maserati Quattroporte GTS is Now Under $40,000

Longer than an S-Class but weighing only 100lbs (45 kg) more than a C63 Coupe. The QP6 GTS debuted the Ferrari F154 V8, making 523 hp / 524 lb-ft of torque. Introduced with a top speed of 191 mph, it was the second fastest Maserati in history after the MC12 and the fastest production sedan on the planet (for a couple…

*Warning* Old School Wobblings Post *Warning* Old School Wobblings Post

Ive been getting hit on quite a bit ever since I lost my baby teeth. I was able to hold onto them for so long because I kept them on a necklace instead of under a pillow (which is historically a terrible place to keep your teeth). To help this make sense, understand that shark tooth necklaces were popular for a time …

Never marry for status. Always marry for Stratos.

Call Me Duke Because I Gotta Feature 'The Cat'  Call Me Duke Because I Gotta Feature 'The Cat' 

I had a long post filled with provocative adverbs and evocative imagery which juxtaposed the British driving experience to American Jazz. I later went on to describe how American Cars took on influences of British Rock as compensation but instead, deleted it all to just post that I like this 2012 XF.

Want to Know What is Really Weird About Tesla? Want to Know What is Really Weird About Tesla?

Their “fuel” cover opens towards the rear lights. I can’t think of any other vehicles where, when you open the cover, your hand travels towards the rear of the car rather than towards the headlights. Doesn’t matter which side of the car your tank is on or if your cover is on the front fenders. This is unhinging, kin.

Show Me the Cars You've Recently Bought and Unnecessary Car Shopped Show Me the Cars You've Recently Bought and Unnecessary Car Shopped

I cant keep up with who actually got a what and to whom is shopping which now. If you bought a car recently (the last 18 months), show me. If you are emotionally available to buying a car in the next 18 months and are UCS, show me!

Car Chase from 'Jade' (Mature Content Warning) Car Chase from 'Jade' (Mature Content Warning)

Before the Ford Raptor, the highest flying Ford was the Taurus! I love watching movies and seeing just how many of a single automaker's cars they can fit on screen at one time. 

Mmm Yes, GTS Mmm Yes, GTS

The Levante GTS is fantastic and the LV Trofeo is pretty close to where I was expecting it to be in power and price (though I called it an MC). I love the refresh on the GB and QP, and the GT is still holding strong. Can’t wait for the new lineup and I’m hoping the GB gets the V6 F154 soon since I don’t think the V8…

Behind the Scenes: Wrecking New Evos in 'Thunderbolt' with Jackie Chan Behind the Scenes: Wrecking New Evos in 'Thunderbolt' with Jackie Chan

Nothing like watching behind the scenes footage of car stunts, especially from 90s Jackie Chan movies. I keep saying that I’ll sit down and watch Thunderbolt instead of just the clips (I have a bad habit of stringing clips but never watching the movies).
