It sort of feels like the old timey hummer days.

There is nothing quite so depressing than to roll up to a car show and have it filled with SUV's. I just don't get it. I'm sure the minivan sector is getting caved thank gawd - but still. They all look the same. I just don't get it. I can barely even tell them apart. Even Rolls has an SUV right now. SUV's just feel like the cheaper hummer equivalent.

It sort of feels like the end of the last recession when everyone started buying things that looked exactly the same. Little boxes, little boxes, and they all look the same. But at least I was able to find a couple of things that were not SUV's.

I think the kids are into the distressed look right now.

A guy in the East bay is doing these ceiling runners. He's called Stars on the Ceiling.

Audi broke my heart, and the RS5. I just realized this week that the new models don't have a pop up wing. They have a faux wing. They ruined it. No flappy paddles. No naturally aspirated engines. And this ridiculous wing. If you can call it that. Why bother!

    Even Lamborghini had to get into the SUV market.

    Admittedly, it is an SUV that goes from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, but it's still an SUV ...

  2. Yeah.... I see the MasUV with some regularity. It just feels like people are done with individuality for the moment. Because other than badging - I can't tell most of them apart from a distance.
