Test Drove the Toyota FJ Cruiser

On Saturday, my wife and I test drove the new FJ. That was probably one of the smoothest rides I've had in a larger 4-wheel drive vehicle, if you can classify the FJ as one, cuz it's like no other.

My wife, who currently drives a VW Bug, loved it. She gave it some serious gas getting on to the interstate and we were going 70 mph in no time. For the size, the maneuverability wasn't too shabby either

The dealship we went to had 4 of them on Friday and by the time we stopped in on Saturday in the AM, they were down to their last one.

My prediction - these things are going to be all over the road (and off it).


Have a good one,
Rob

Suspension and Brakes

I just wanted to give everybody a head’s up that we’ve added quite a line of suspension components and kits, as well as brakes to our site.

Check out what we have and let me know if we’re missing any brands you’d like to see.

Also, feel free to comment on how we’re selling them (the content and interface) – I want to know if we’re doing it the best way possible.

Thanks,
Rob

The Best Road Trip Songs

On to lighter subject matter.

What do you consider to be the best road trip songs out there?

I'll start it off with a few of my favorites:

Radar Love - Golden Earring
In the days of my youth, I remember going to visit a certain redheaded girlfriend that lived several states away and blasting/singing this song in the wee hours just to keep me from falling asleep at the wheel.

Highway Star - Deep Purple
This one doesn't have a pretty girl story attached to it, but whenever I hear it and I'm driving, I feel like giving it just a bit more gas.

Born To Be Wild - Steppenwolf
Again, another one that just seems to "get your motor runnin'".

Detroit Rock City - Kiss
That little breakdown with the screeching tires followed by the crash always makes me pretend to crank the wheel one way, then the other, finally slamming into some imaginary barrier.

In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins
Not really a driving song, nor a tune I care for. But, I once saw Phil singing this dreamy ditty in the beams of my headlights as I was fighting off fatigue at 4am on a road trip between Cleveland, OH and Charlotte, NC - again going to visit that dern redhead.

Come on, I know you have a song and story. Everybody does.

In the news

I read that Ford's profits are on the rise, yet they're cutting jobs http://news.moneycentral.msn.com/provider/providerarticle.asp?feed=FT&Date=20060123&ID=5437449 .

The oil companies are showing record profits, but a gallon of gas costs so much more than it used to (see your local gas station for details).

I watched the Barrett-Jackson auto auction the other night and I saw a 1950 bus go for over $4 millon, but I'm struggling to scrape up the money for a new car http://www.azcentral.com/community/scottsdale/articles/0123sr-auction23Z8.html .

I'm not sure how I feel about all if this, but I at least wanted to mention it. What do you think?

Have a good one,

Rob

Back in the saddle

Wow! it's been a while. The Holiday Season will do that to you.

So, what's new.

Last week, I received the lastest issue of Motor Trend and really enjoyed the article on the Totyota FJ http://www.toyota.com/vehicles/future/fj_cruiser/. I saw one again at the San Diego Auto Show a couple of weeks back and I'm still thinking about it, but I'll tell ya, the rebirth of American Muscle cars is really starting to take hold of me. The Mustang http://www.fordvehicles.com/cars/mustang/, the Challenger http://www.dodge.com/dodge_life/news/autoshow_news/, what to do. Too bad we all don't have the car budget of Leno.

Have a great day,

Rob
