Toyota seems to maybe be on the verge of ending their tasteless vow of mediocrity. There is much talk about the possibility of a new Supra that is brewing, some say it will be a hybrid, others say it will be a supercar like the Nissan GTR, and some even would say both. Toyota will be on thin ice with this project though, they have vastly disappointed enthusiasts all over the world with their modern “beige” attitude, and the quality of their cars has greatly suffered for it.

However, those looking to buy a de-commissioned patrol vehicle should definitely watch out. Read the rest of this entry »
I’ve been a fan of Cadillac since I was a little kid. When I was just eight years old, we pulled up in the driveway of my grandparents’ house in Boca Raton, and my grandpa said, “Albert, I have something to show you.” He opened the garage door, and there sat a brand-new 1998 Cadillac Deville D’Elegance, in Gold Firemist, with the Northstar V8.
