    Okay, so we have a couple of threads running about whether VW can hack it in the American market. Let's have a little fun...for sake of discussion, let's say VW pulled up stakes and rolled up their tents today. What other car company do you feel most closely mirrors VW, and why? What would...

    I realize that this is old news, but to see this on TV today just cracked me up. A car that is powered by hamsters in Japan is just too funny to pass up. I mean we all suspect that Civics are powered by hamsters. Proof that the technology exists! :lol: I had a good laugh. I guess the way...

    With all the different threads we've had on this topic, I hope one more won't be one too many. I took my wife and two girls to Stratford, Canada last weekend. My brother, sister-in-law, and their two children live there. This was the first trip I have taken there since I sold the Passat in...
