We needed a new lounge thread.
Poll question reflects urgent business.
Minivan all day. Although I do love a good underdog.
This whole car thing reminds me of the car I used to drive before getting my current one. It was an '04 Pontiac Montana. Bumper held on by duct tape. Speedometer and gas gauge didn't work quite right. Needed new brakes, new shocks, had a bunch of weird rattles, and the only thing that didn't make noise was the horn. But by god, could she fly.
Speed holes are a safe investment
Also, I shamelessly voted for my minivan.
I need this victory....
I remember my friends mom had a Pontiac Transport or whatever it was called minivan. That thing was aerodynamic as F.
Wait, am I that old that I am mis-remembering? Homer is the one making speed holes in his car, not Krusty...
Don't underestimate those mid-00's Elements.
I can go from zero-to-fifty in 0.4 minutes!
Weekend's an hour away and it's going to be 22 and gorgeous, so just have the car talk out of your system by monday lads
It's from the Clown College episode where Homer becomes the regional Krusty knock-off who does swap meets, kids birthday parties, and all the other crap Krusty wouldn't touch with a 10-foot clown pole.
I was confused by this too. Homer was dressed up as Krusty. Though for a minute I was convinced this image was created by mixymashy AI
I had to drive a 1991 Transport in high school. It was amazing that I was able to get a girlfriend in it.
Haha, oh jeez, I remember those things.
It looks like the kind of car that people in 1991 thought people in 2050 would drive. It's the "B-Movie Space-Suit" of minivans.
Yeah it looks like something you'd see at Epcot. Truly one of the worst looking vehicles of all time.
Disclaimer: I wasn't driving this in the 1990's where it would have been acceptable. I graduated high school in 2006
I still cannot believe some exec saw the design and said "yeah, this will do!"
I feel like at some point the Aztek switched from so ugly its awful to so ugly its kinda cool.
What's funny is my dad thought these looked really cool too and almost bought one as well. Thankfully this time I was old enough that my opinion mattered enough to dissuade him.
Those lunchboxes on wheels are 100x worse than an Aztec for design. At least you could get a functional camping tent set up on the tailgate of an Aztec.
According to the World Bank
And that 1.1 billion fewer is despite the population increasing by 2 billion
Does all this mean there are no problems with capitalism? No of course not.
Does this mean that growth for the middle class in the west has been as fast for the rich and those in developing countries? No, those two aren't mutually inclusive.
But just because there are problems with the current system doesn't mean we should ignore all the good it has done and pass it of as some great evil. Instead we should just find ways to reform it so that the wealth it generates is more evenly distributed.
@mysens doesn't stand a chance!
For those who are in their 40s, remember when a fast car was 0-60 in 8 seconds? A quarter mile in the 15s was serious business. 14s? Almost supercars territory.
I think minivans are comfortably in the 6s for 0-60 now and in the low 15s.
Crazy...and more efficient too
Can't bring a Honda Element to a minivan race. Jeez. Might as well walk around with a sandwich board sign that reads "kick me in the nuts".
