Well it’s my title and this post is a IMO…
I’ve owened some good cars and some bad cars through the years.
Some very bad while living in Israel (mostly french cars) and some just vanilla (Mazda…) but after moving to the US and traveling every other week I had a chance to rent most Rice Burners and Amaerican cars in the past few years.
Let’s start with the new Toyota Camry.
I bought a brand new one in 2008 and regretfully I have to report that I regret buying that car.
IMO Toyota, Honda, Nissan and other rice burners (let’s put Lexus, Infinity and maybe Acura on the side for now) are too expensive for what you get from the car!
When buying a brand new car and replacing it every 3 odd years I must say I would never ever buy another Jap car again.
At this point in time in the US Hyundai and Kia have much more value for money and have full 5 year warranty.
But let’s get back to the title.
My best full size Sedan would be The (well three of them but they are the same car) Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and the Lincoln Towncar.
Why am I saying so now that I don’t own one anymore?
I just landed in NC and I recived a crown vic from the rental company and I started missing my old Grand Marquis.
It has a great V8 that does 22MPG city and 30+ MPG highway, the car is built like a tank, it will run forever, it’s comftrable and if you get one in white everyone moves out of your way.
I had my Merc for 3+ years and I put 50K miles on it without anything! yes anything (except for two things I broke so I can’t blame the car) breaking on it, I gave it back to the insurance company with 145K miles and it would run for at least another 150K miles
Now you might say hey now he drives a Rice burner but that isn’t the fact, today I drive a Supercharged Jaguar XJR which I love but would go back to an american car in a heart beat.
As you live in the US I say buy american!
So FORD, bring back the Marauder and make it look like this!

Cool game, or coolest game ever
? That’s the question we were asking ourselves when we first came across Garnet Hertz’s augmented reality-based OutRun project
— a concept car that weds Sega’s classic driving game with an electric golf cart, allowing players to navigate their way around real-life courses using only arcade consoles. Hertz, an informatics researcher at the University of California Irvine, has since brought his idea to fruition, after outfitting the system with cameras and customized software that can “look” in front of the car to automatically reproduce the route on the game cabin’s screen. The map is displayed in the same 8-bit rendering you’d see on the original OutRun, with perspectives changing proportionally to shifts in steering. The cart maxes out at only 13 mph, though speed isn’t really the idea; Hertz and his colleagues hope their technology can be used to develop game-based therapies for disabled users, or to create similarly AR-based wheelchairs. Scoot past the break to see a video of the car in action, and let your dreams converge.
