    ’70 Chevelle 350 2bbl
    -surging on acceleration
    -left front tire wore out on the outside in less than 5000 miles
    Neither the numerous mechanics nor the GM Engineer that looked at it could fix either problem.

    ’90 Taurus
    -stalling and rough idle
    -on long road trips after about 2 hours of driving, a damper inside the dash would close and then no more AC until the car cooled down completely
    Numerous mechanics tried and failed to fix these problems
    -AC compressor failure
    -numerous CV joint replacements
    all w/ less than 70,000 miles

    This is a regional thing, I’ve been to other parts of the 48 and don’t see so many large vehicles. But here it has gone about as far as it can, every man drives a truck, the bigger the better and every wife needs an SUV just as tall or she can’t see. In my car I feel like I am in a metal canyon.

    But its a free country, people should drive what they like. And, whatever they choose, I’ll be here to gripe about it.

    My area is the same way though its hilarious when you pull up to a cummins powered truck and your little 4 banger diesel is louder and faster. Though normally they are lifted and could eat my car. I love doing this to muscle cars as well funny thing is everything is stock the engine is just a beast for its size.

Big blocks make some nasty torque man, plus I have a granny gear.

    Though I do not disagree big blocks are torque monsters for gas engines.

    6.4L Powerjoke might be possible though 220hp/560ftlbs thats actually an international maxxforce 7 with ford “fixing” it lol.

Cummins man..those are great motors. I think my gearing gives me an advantage though over the powerstroke and the duramax. I already make amazing torque. http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge/sm465.htm : those gear ratios+ 4.10 rear and I think I’d do alright.

    Def out pull powerjoke and duratrash. Cummins ISB though i don’t think your gearing would be enough. Especially since most of them rock Eatons or Allisons.

    but also in a area with real bad roads, the caravans are no match for really rough roads. it could be the drivers too doing that.
    but you are right though. anywhere with decent roads these vans arent bad.

    I have mixed emotions about the 2016 Lexus RX and 2016 Jeep Cherokee


    Not sure if I hate them or kinda like how ugly they are for some strange reason.

    Toyota Prius. Everything else has at least one redeeming feature, even if that redeeming feature is simply the fact that it isn’t a Prius.

    Mike, even the Prius has a unique redeeming point!:
