Last Call- Tattoo You Edition

I was originally looking at a bunch of questionably chosen car-related tattoos, when I came across this one and said to myself, hey, that’s not half bad. In fact, I can imagine leaning this arm on the parts store counter and gaining a whole new level of respect.

    is the image reversed? That's the arm you hang out the window, and it looks like the steering wheel is on the incorrect side, which would reinforce the idea that the image has been flipped.
    Also, if you like rebuilding engines, then these wrist pin tattoos are for you!

      There are some side benefits to having a tattoo like that on your forearm – for example- it will force you to stay in shape or those tires are going to go flat.

    "Sweet Tat Brah, is that your car?"
    "No man, I just saw this tat on the internet and thought it'd look sweet leaning on the parts counter. What are the cheapest brake pads you have for an '04 Sonata?

    My brother has wanted to get the tire track of the bogger tire around his arm for years. I think it would be awesome

      There are cheaper ways to accomplish that, just be sure to select hard terrain as the canvas for the media to sit on.

    Today I saw the new Chevy Colorado for the first time. It looks like a full size truck. I didn't get close enough to judge how big it actually is, but it's styled to look huge. The hood line and bed sides are stupid high. As in, this guy in the Motor Trend photo is probably stashing his backpack in the cab because he gave up on getting it into the bed.

      And they say we can't have a ROW Ranger because of this exact reason.
      Also, looks like it's missing a rocker cover or a step up bar, and there does not appear to be a fancy winch system for the spare tire. Maybe it has manual windows and no cup holders too! Rejoice, the right sized actual truck is back, maybe!

        As in, the global Ranger would be too close in size to the F150?
        I struggle to predict how this truck will sell. I haven't looked at prices but it would have to undercut the Tacoma dramatically to win any Toyota fans. Meanwhile, my domestic-truck-driving friends seem to always want a bigger truck than whatever they have now.
        It's the vehicular equivalent of a super-sized diet coke. But there are people who order those.

          I'd be shocked if they could convert Tacoma loyalists.
          There's just too long-standing of a history of Toyota making long-lasting, easily modified and serviced compacts, with GM having the opposite.

            "Loyalists," no.
            Those who haven't owned one yet, want one, but find out the Colorado is $4k cheaper? Maybe. I looked it up:
            • Colorado 2wd manual $19,900 CAD
            • Tacoma 2wd manual $23,985 CAD
            Both MSRP excluding destination.
            I think saving $4,000 would be a good enough reason for some people to take a look at it.

            Very interesting discussion and a good point: 4000$ is no less but a meaty 17% in difference! But…based on a drop of experience and a bucket of prejudice, I'd assume the Toyota is 100% better, too.
            Btw, I have no clue who would downvote Tim on the above comment (loyalists, maybe?), but I tried to fix that.

            Some grump who has forgotten that when GM first wanted to sell small trucks, they re-badged Japanese ones…

      Makes ya wonder why they even drove to the mountains if they can just climb their Colorado.

      I really like the Colorado/Canyon's size. But, I own a Dakota, and my ideal full-size pickup dimensionality is something like an '80-'96 Ford F-150 (which was still low enough for an easy reach over the box side, even on a 4×4.)
      The garages where I live aren't long enough to accept some full-size configurations, and I have to admit some schadenfreude when I see neighbors drive home in a shiny new Ford or Chevy extended or crew cab and proceed to waste an hour before they realize there's no good way to fit 232-235" of pickup in 231" of garage. New Rams fit fine lengthwise (barely) unless they're 3/4-tonners, or have a brush bar, or are the crew cab with 6.4-foot box combo. I'd have no problem with my preferred Ram combination (regular cab short box) but I would really have to watch the extra 6" of width.

        I didn't think of the idea that some might buy this truck simply because it fits in their garage. That's a good point.

      I was close to pulling the trigger on a Canyon around Christmas, for the parkability. They weren't budging on price much then, ended up with a Ram v6 4wd bighorn for 4k less. Its a big truck the GM, and really the perfect size. Happy with the ram, but an extra 6 inches long and wide has a big impact.

        Just checked…can get to Moskva for as little as 240$. Hm. Brain overload.

            Haha, I am still lost! I am already working overtime to finish two projects at work before Easter, so I'm not going anywhere now. But I've been talking to a friend who's fluent in Russian…the 1979 Volga 24 and this "urgent, need money" 1989 UAZ 469 is what we'd take home today, if we could. Nothing will happen in the real world, most probably, but it's fun to dream…

    What happened to the right side headlight?

    The news are still three days away, so I see no other option but to post this here. The Toyota (GT)86/FRS/BRZ is getting a facelifted, retro inspired special edition for women in Japan. The "xStyle Cb" also features upgraded brakes, a lower suspension and factory 18 inch wheels. Ladies and Gentlehoons, I need your opinions.

      Nice Solstice coupe.

      I want to see the rest of the car that front end should go on.
      What I mean is, the front is completely different and the rest is completely the same. With paint.
      I am neither retro nor feminine, but I have a feeling those wheels aren't either.

      Looks a bit unfinished, but not bad at all.
