Crikey.... I hate the wheels,/ Rims./ Tyres, /Rims with elastic bands on them. (Delete as applicable)
They just look wrong. The car needs to be beige. With velour seats. And a vinyl roof.

Something older and becoming weirdly common in Atlanta



It's got NY plates on her so the rust hand underneath must be strong

Can you add what is called here "continental kit", spare wheel outside and rear bumper accondingly with exhausts inside the bananas. Could you add rear-hinged rear doors too, unless it a coupé like the Thunderbird for instace? Thanks for your help, E.B!

Pininfarina Spider Europa or Azzura, right? You didn't have to ask for rust as an option, they were delivered already rusted, was part of weight reduction program while U drive. Or not.

Bizarrely I don't mind that. Providing you're not in a hurry and don't intend on going around any corners I'm sure it's a good car for summer cruising around.

The Caddy also drinks lots of fuel. Not sure why we can't all agree to just call it "fuel", to add to the gas v petrol convo

Fuel is generally what I use. Back in the early days of motoring there was Pratts Motor Spirit.

No idea, but then again Pratts went bang before I was born. We had Regent petrol and of course Mobil, with the Pegasus branding.

I can't remember what I used for my cars in my youth. May be Motul 2100 M for my 122 S and Veedol too. Antar molygraphite had a reputation among Cirtoën owners world.

This is about a car that is being advertised on the TV currently. It's for a Skoda, and the wording under the picture of the car states: "...... shown with optional paint".

Now, I know what they actually mean, however factually it reads as though you could buy the car unpainted.

Things like that annoy me after being brought up to speak and write "proper". It seems that more and more that people are becoming economical with words as if there wasn't enough air in the world to fully explain themselves. And, yet, at the same time youngsters are injecting the word "like" it almost every sentence they utter, and sometimes multiple times in a sentence.

Thank you for taking the time to read my rant.

I enjoyed your Ted Talk but can't say anything about your point because much of this comes from my people. And I like it. Be direct. Say what you mean with as few words as possible.

For example, if someone says gas or petrol, I've known so many Brits and consume so much content/entertainment from there, I don't even hear it. I just know what you mean.

Also, my current truck has an $800 paint option on it. That was back in 2011. Since then they have painted over a half million trucks that color. Not cars, just trucks. $800? Really?

And it doesn't actually mean the alterative is no paint. Unless you falsely infer it.

If you were able to option one with no paint in reality, it would be awesome though. I've never seen a Skoda in person, but the Octavia wagon from 20 years ago or so... thumbs up!

It's not new that all new cars have special paints as an option. You could have them white but it's never available. And about paint, I find the quality awful. Ask any restaurer, he will tell you about orange skin or paint roller aspect.
