Don't forget that the Cobalt SS held the Nürburgring record for FWD production cars for some time, before Renault and other European hot hatch builders started crushing it with fully-caged "production" cars (which are absolutely fantastic and cooler than a Cobalt, but kind of cheating when it comes to lap times). » 9/12/14 10:33pm Friday 10:33pm

I love them, but it's all the hassle of owning a W124 wagon (yes, Mercedes, a biodegradable wiring harness is a wonderful idea! And the fact that you introduced them mid-year, for that extra surprise when trying to buy one, is even better!) with none of the practicality.

I'm hoping to enter some Hitting Redline stuff just to see, but obviously it would be preferable if I could continue to use that material for… » 8/27/14 1:46pm 8/27/14 1:46pm

Asking this here because it got lost the first time. If we submit something to the Jalop Film Fest, so we maintain the rights to broadcast, profit from, and otherwise use that piece? I was looking at the contest rules, and it appears that the answer is "yes," but for my own entries (I intend to enter a Hitting Redline… » 8/26/14 10:20pm 8/26/14 10:20pm
