Where Do You Get Your Car News From?

Just wondering what everyone does...

Anyone watch FastLaneDaily, Motortrend or Edmund's Inside Line videos on YouTube?
I actually find that a lot more convenient than magazines. Opinions?

Top Gear....


I actually don't get car news. If it's anything good, Top Gear will make fun of it eventually.

Not really that keen on car news to be honest, I only ever come across news when I'm at my local WHSmiths where all the car magazines are at and if any of them catch my eye. I'm more into motorsports so I go on Autosport and PlanetLemans and every week listen to the Midweek Motorsport show on Radiolemans. Race cars are allot cooler imo.

I subscribe to Auto Express. I like the fact that it's a weekly mag as opposed to monthly. Obviously the price reflects this, too.

You see, this is why I come here for the latest news.

I want a Geely Otaka.


And a Twizzy Z.E.


And a 1/32nd scale slot car track.


And a Maserati Grand Cabrio.


But the Geely is my favorite. The car is okay too. Maybe that'll liven things up around here for a day or two.

Oh and hobo, I'll let you post above remain, at least that's vaguely acceptable.

Bullshit

This is my thread, and I say what gets deleted. I want everything undeleted.

Also, just heard a rumor that Porsche's bringing back a car similar to the 914...A car smaller and cheaper than the Boxster. I'm interested.

So the self appointed thought police is not only deleting my posts but also editing the senior moderators posts now.

Proof that Cliffy is still a useless piece of sh*t. Surprise!

Thank G-d you're still here. It'd suck if the 0.27 members on this forum would get offended at that.

Kim Jong Il, there was nothing wrong with the hobo's posts, not even vulgarity. They just hurt your EGO. You only proved his point by removing those posts.

I edited Bav's post because it had the post of yours that I also deleted within it. Carry on guys.

I'd appreciate some kind of warning that my own post is being edited for content...content I didn't see fit for editing the first time around. I didn't see anything wrong with vwhobo's comments. Flame's on the moderators is not uncommon. If I was to delete every comment directed at me, there'd be a few hundred less posts on this forum.

I don't recall his EXACT words, but I know I felt I was included in whatever he mentioned and I simply replied. There is room for some discussion, adult style, if you wish. Simply deleting posts makes things more sticky.

There is only one individual's posts that gets deleted immediately with no warning and with a ban to follow, and that is for WHAT (and his many attempts to return). So far, I'm the only one enforcing that "policy".
