Commented On: 2014 Ford Transit Connect Preview

I think Ford has hit on something here as there should be a market for a smaller mini-van out there. I am wondering if Dodge will develop a minivan model off it's just released Ram lineup from Fiat or the smaller van from Fiat in the pipe line. Ford and Dodge once owned the mini-van segment which has been eroded away by the competition, but a little imagination and creativity by them could result in a whole new market and some renewed healthy competition between old rivals looking to recapture market share.

Commented On: Think Your Old Car Was Awesome? It Probably Wasn't

It depends on how one defines "awesome". Now for me it's forty three years of flawless service, thrilling performance and classic muscle car looks that draws admiration and respect. It's my 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T. Best ride of my life. AWESOME.... by definition.

I'm a boomer and I own a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T. If I could own any car, at any price, it would be my Challenger. So fun.

Commented On: 5 Of The Best Car Commercials (And 5 Of The Worst)

The best commercial in my opinion was the one with the Sheriff stopping the guy in the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T and asking,"is that a race car you got there boy?" I love that one. Makes my laugh every time. I also agree with John. That scorpion taking that bikini top away in the Abarth commercial is a top five, so is she.... clearly.

If it weren't for the huge government rebates and government purchases of these cars, then the Volt would have gone the way of the dodo bird. Last ditch effort by General Motors to push these on innocent people. Sounds like Obamacare on wheels.

Commented On: Ford F-150 To Be Offered Ready For Natural-Gas Conversion

The Car Connection 0 Views 3 comments
I've maintained consistently that natural gas is the intelligent approach to alternative fuels in commercial and fleet applications. It is a far better choice than hybrid or electric where the use of charging methods has hidden environmental, disposal and cost problems. I believe Ford has taken the lead in clearing the way for this approach. Unfortunately the issues have been clouded by a rush to electric, which if one looks closely, is still impractical and offers too many negatives. I'd hate to own a six year old hybrid and try to sell or trade it in and find no takers. Would you buy one with a depleted battery needed disposal at a major cost if even available? Not me.

Commented On: What Is Sergio Marchionne Saying In His Email To Chrysler Employees?

It's true, that recall was a bogus claim where the federal government (again) exceeded it's power and bowed to emotion, possible greed while not exercising common sense and ignoring the facts. Too bad Chrysler, still under the watchful eye of the federal government, had to eat this loss so the paper pushers in Washington DC could look good and flex their clout. Bad stuff.

Only the Chrysler 200 will use the stated platform. The next generation Dodge Avenger will share a wheel rear drive platform with a soon to arrive Alfa Romeo.

As an art lover I find this form of automotive marketing to be inspirational and effective. Upon close, and I mean very close observation, I found the need for one more participant to really elevate the art form to a higher level. I reluctantly volunteer to work my way into the group and modestly add my personal touch, so to say, to this work. Life has it's moments.

Commented On: 2013 Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan Recalled For Airbag Software Issue

Almost all recalls seem to be supplier related. These guys are being pressed to keep costs down and obviously are cutting corners. I read that many of the recalled parts were from the Japanese sunammi time frame when second level manufacturers filled in for the effected suppliers. Chrysler is working hard to eliminate errors and build confidence in it's products. Takes time but will pay off down the road.
