That's like a goofball cross between One-Eyed Jack's from David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" and the future Starbucks from Mike Judge's "Idiocracy." As in, I'd like an adult latte from Audrey Horne, please. »
I'd imagine there's way too much toxic douchebag jism encrusted on that thing to warrant the $6K he's asking. »
I'll go with the Kia Soul. The vent window frame forward from the C pillar is a straight vertical (on other cars, lIke the Mazda3 hatch, that line is angled), and the back end appears truncated and is almost vertical, like the Kia. The beltline batches, as does the rear wheel well. And the front-end blur where the… »
Here's what I'd do. Since Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is a combination of both Fiat and Chrysler now, why not peel Dodge away from Chrysler-Jeep-Ram dealers and pair that American performance marque with Alfa Romeo? A combined Alfa-Dodge (or Dodge-Alfa) dealership might make for a tumescence-inducing experience for… »
I saw a Suzuki Equator up the street from my workplace and had to do a double-take. It looked like a Nissan with Suzuki badging. Saw one of those Mitsubishi Dakota thing right around the corner from there, too. »

From all the Mopar scuttlebutt I've read lately, Fiat Chrysler is positioning Maserati as its Mercedes-BMW-Audi-Jaguar fighter. Which leaves Chrysler as FCA's brand somewhere between Buick and Chevrolet, and Dodge as its, well, Mercury or Pontiac. »
The Maserati ad was thoroughly in keeping with the recent Chrysler (now Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) tradition of mini-epic Super Bowl ads. What this ad was really about was that it announced Maserati as the top-end marque of the luxury hierarchy in the FCA brand portfolio. That point was unspoken, but if you've been… »
You left off Sacramento, CA.
Williamsburg = Midtown; southern edge of Downtown-Midtown grid.
Bushwick = Oak Park.
Shouldn't this headline read: "White Man Shoots New Black Neighbors He Thought Were Stealing From His Property"? I mean, the shooter is white, the victims were black, the victims were shot from afar, and it happened in West Virginia, so racism may play a part in what fueled the shooter's knee-jerk response. »
