Precious few vehicles can offer what the Chevy Bolt does in terms of money savings on gasoline. This dedicated small electric hatchback is one of the few such vehicles currently available, and it’s making the most of its situation. MY 2019 will spawn a number of new competitors for the Bolt, but GM’s subcompact hatch won’t be changed radically. Some sources are suggesting it’ll receive new semi-autonomous driving technology, but other than that only new colors and possibly trim options will be introduced.
The CRX Si received Honda’s D16A6 4-cylinder good for 105-108 hp (depending on the year and perhaps tailwind/grade) and 100 lb-ft of torque. If that doesn’t sound like much power to you, well…it’s not. Keep in mind though, that this is still basically a Civic, and that this car only weighs about 2,000 lbs. What sets this car apart from the Civic is not its power, but rather its style.
One thing that is consistent is the 2.0L V8 engine. On top of having an incredibly small displacement for a V8, the engine features four chain-driven camshafts, a SPICA fuel injection system, 16 spark plugs, and has a rev-limit of 10,000 rpm. The unique powerplant produces 230 hp in the road ready editions and 270 hp in race units. Leave it to Alfa Romeo to find an interesting way to deliver power to the ground.
See, some can earn $300+ by placing advertisements on the car. Will they look a bit cheesy? Well, probably, but that is what it takes for an additional $300+ per month. Actually, I am not sure this fits this category of driving jobs as it is actually a marketing job. However, it could be good for you if you need some additional funds in your account. Google companies that would pay for this kind of advertising; they are out there.
The Pontiac Fiero isn’t what most people would describe as exciting. They were overhyped even at the time, and they used engines that always left something on the table in terms of performance. With over 370,000 produced, a Fiero today can be a great platform for one of those shitty Ferrari kits or better yet, a 3800 V6 swap. A modern V6 really wakes these babies up.
The Blue Oval hatchback hasn’t been fully redesigned since the third generation’s debut in 2012, and that’s more than evident. With competition already freshened up, the Focus has definitely fallen out of…well, focus. It’s aging rapidly and the new model couldn’t have come at a more opportune moment. The 2019 Ford Focus won’t offer that many changes overall, though; the shape remains mostly unchanged as if it’s yet another mid-cycle refresh we’re talking about and not a full makeover.
We love the irony of taking one the most mass-produced used engines ever and sticking it in Honda’s first mass-marketed car ever. And if you want to undertake something like this yourself, check out this detailed guide which chronicles how that engine got where it is.
Some enthusiast may point out the Road Runner-based Superbird, as a better car but we are not among them. The styling was too radical and the Hemi powered Road Runner was just a better overall car.
Not only does the Civic Type R perform and look more aggressively than its conventional siblings, but it also sports a number of upgrades you won’t be able to see with your eyes. One such upgrade is a front-strut suspension Honda calls the Dual Axis, which almost completely eliminates torque steer using a carefully mapped engine computer which allows the Type R to run like a charm.
Now, this is not something I expected to reach this list of driving jobs, but here it is. It’s actually quite common especially in massive cities. You know, where people have more important things to do than feed their pets and drive them to the vet in time?
The new car will be slightly longer and wider, and it’ll sport an entirely new interior something past generations have struggled with. What’s more, the Blue Oval will source the hatchback from their new assembly in China instead of building it in Mexico as was originally intended. The current Ford Focus is still being built in Wayne, Michigan.
The F136 can be found in the Ferrari F430 and California, the Alfa 8C, and Maserati models dating back to 2002. This includes the often-daily-driven-by-pretentious-fools Quattroporte, lending credence to its reliability, but if you want the real deal step up and pull one out of a 458.
The main difference between an LQ4 and an LS2 is an iron block, which means these can hold tons of power. They’re famous for being a cheap way to get insane stats, and this hot Chevelle gained world fame In 2016 from an article at Hot Rod by throwing down 800 horsepower. That’s thanks to 16 psi of boost from a single 80mm Borg Warner turbo. The builder says “getting sideways in third or fourth gear is no problem” we’re not surprised.
