Honestly, I don't know. I don't have a big heartwarming story that suddenly made me see those hunks of metal, plastic and rubber as more than mere appliances. In fact, I simply don't remember not being fascinated by cars. I have memories, fond memories involving cars, sure. For example, of my dad and grandad sitting… » 3/05/15 10:13pm Yesterday 10:13pm

Nah, you're way better off with the Benz. It might not be the real thing (and the real thing is probably a very expensive thing to begin with) but it's an insanely awesome tribute to one of the most important cars in Senna's career. That win at Nürburgring is often regarded as the moment he made sure he had what it… » 3/05/15 6:12pm Yesterday 6:12pm

I do, and I likey. Hopefully they'll shed some of that "look at me, I'm 60's retro" design in the new car, and go for a more balanced shape. Don't get me wrong, I Always thought, and still do, that the 5th gen Camaro is a great car. I'd buy one in a heartbeat, if I could afford it, and was in the Market, but holy hell… » 3/05/15 6:01pm Yesterday 6:01pm

Fuck that... It sounds like a good idea now, but just you wait until inspection centers get a taste of the power they'll have over people. We don't regular inspections here in Brazil, but they're mandatory when you buy a car, and I don't think it's actually possible to pass one without a week of going back and forth… » 3/05/15 5:27pm Yesterday 5:27pm

America's infrastructure is flawed? Man, you should come to Brazil one of these days. Remember the world cup, which the country started preparing for back in 2010? Those improvements weren't even finished when they started crumbling. There's an overpass about a mile from my home which has been under construction since… » 3/02/15 8:33pm Monday 8:33pm

Pretty much the same thing, started dropping Money everywhere. Now inflation's at a record high since the 80's, which older people refer to as the lost decade. Now they talk about saving Money by cutting down public costs and taxing fortunes, but the public costs they talk about don't include the insane benefits they… » 3/02/15 8:20pm Monday 8:20pm

I'd only heard about Netflix in passing until recently. I'd known what it was for quite a long time already because of the internet, but the service wasn't available in Brazil until last year I think. I've never used it though, a subscription is not very cheap down here, and Brazil, or at least my area, doesn't count… » 3/01/15 4:41pm Sunday 4:41pm

I'd honestly forgotten about that. The Explorer was never sold in Brazil, so it was never a problem here. Then again, problems in one single model of car or tire hardly justify the push for a "safer" technology, and that's assuming it actually is safer. Plus, by that logic, we should be moving away from Airbags by… » 3/01/15 7:49am Sunday 7:49am

Same here. I have the Keys to my place and my parents' place in a single ring with nothing else attached to it, and my car key and alarm remote (remember when those came separately as a set?) attached to a Pearl Jam keyring that's about as the car itself. » 2/28/15 2:16pm 2/28/15 2:16pm
