So, what kinds of fuckery are taxi drivers/ ride sharing drivers doing i your city tomorrow?

So, what kinds of fuckery are taxi drivers/ ride sharing drivers doing i your city tomorrow?

Even after the city government gave out FIFTEEN MILLION DOLLARS to taxi drivers (as a bribe basically) in order to upgrade their cars... they threatened a march in Mexico City.... Worst thing is... They aren’t enough... so they’re bringing in taxi drivers from the neighboring state... they admit to this themselves.

The march, as any taxi march of late, is againts Uber and the lot.
The transit...

While I’m not oppo royalty, and I wouldn’t have a say, I think the mods could help chose someone good.

it looks a lot better up close and in person, and the paint was pretty cool...

I am mildly annoyed by the twin exhausts.... I’m sure people enjoy the symmetry, but it must add weight just for that added bit of style. I prefer the old setup;

Yes, I complain about this, despite of what my car looks like:

Still for sale.

Still for sale.

Apparently Lopez Obrador is still desperately trying to sell the presidential jet. He told a bunch of people that he’s going to offer the airplane to Donald Trump... Perhaps to replace the, rather new, C-32 that Mike Pence is supposed to use.

Evidently, Lopez Obrador needs to understand that American Presidents aren’t supposed to fly twins... For safety you know... and what kind of superpower...

Look out! Its the VAM pacer!

Look out! Its the VAM pacer!

Badge engineered to please the hearts of any leftist, protectionist government bureaucrat in the horizon!

I kid, this car is not like the Pacer, the engine inside it is modified to drink our shitty, shitty gasoline; and it has less compression than the regular straight six. Im not a VAM historian but I think we didn't get the V8 here

Conspiracy

Conspiracy

Trump repealed CARB because he knows that more efficient cars make people drive more, and as an environmentalist hippie, he deep down would prefer a carbon tax.

So Nancy Pelosi got in contact with her fellow lizard people illuminati friends in Big Oil and Big Tyre to try and stop Trump from wrecking their perfect profit machine. Which is why they’re trying to impeach him now

ALSO NANCY PELOSI...

Weird flex but OK.

Weird flex but OK.

Seeing RLL’s face did sort of annoy me. Much like when I found out what CPG grey looks like.

Also, who would’ve guessed he lived in Texas?

Don't text and drive, don't drive distracted, don't be a dick.

Don't text and drive, don't drive distracted, don't be a dick.

Today I saw a motorcyclist fly into the rear window of a Jeep. Why? Because two cars wanted to cut into a lane, one of the people cut off was on his phone, and the motorcyclist was not paying attention to the Jeep cutting into his lane.

Conclusions:
People drive like idiots. At least it was at low speed so the motorcyclist was probably not injured.

If this jeep was a wrangler rather than a...

What bothers me the most about "Con altura" is a stupid technicality

What bothers me the most about "Con altura" is a stupid technicality

I do respect Rosalia for having a Panamera, specially if she’s living fast and has no cure.

But my issue is with the fact that the opening scene to the video is clearly an attempt at a 737 or 727 cockpit but the jet they then show in the exterior and interior shots is clearly supposed to be a 747... A strange one at that, since it has the engine housings from newer 747s but has no wingtips...

Also, 3:08AM seems rather random.

Let me show you a “Molde S”:

This article, seemingly translated with a heavy handed dose of Google Translate, has a slew of errors that make it seem unnatural, and it quickly tires the reader. I’m a really bad editor, I’m not claiming a grammatical high ground, but for Gizmodo this is inaceptable.

Like literally translating the nickname for the Nurburgring...

In Mexico the Subaru Legacy is more exclusive than most supercars

In Mexico the Subaru Legacy is more exclusive than most supercars

Go check the list of the 356 best selling models, you will find the Legacy was the 356th best selling car with one (1) unit sold in the entirety of 2018

Im almost impressed that in 2018 Jaguar sold as many electric cars as Renault.

Planeopnik: #LadyBomba

Interjet is yet again embroiled in controversy after one of their employees, First Officer Ximena Garcia posted, jokingly I presume*, a terroristic threat on facebook. Her post read:

“A bomb should fall on the Zocalo [Main Square of Mexico City], it would do all of us a favor #vivaMexico

P.S. if you don’t like my comments delete me, believe me, I don’t give $2

Warm regards”

Today 209 years ago, some priest started a sort-of-revolt againts Spanish empire

Today 209 years ago, some priest started a sort-of-revolt againts Spanish empire

But, 208 years ago, when he died, Mexicans started thinking about becoming independent from the Spanish altogether.

Some eleven years later the Mexicans won the war, and that, kids, is why the Californias are not ruled by Franciscan monks anymore.

Napoleon II sort-of helped, but then Napoleon III invaded Mexico,twice. One of the sole victories for Mexico in latter invasion, the battle of Puebla...

The best coffee shops are the ones you expect the least

The best coffee shops are the ones you expect the least

So, there’s a coffee shop inside every “City Market” grocery store. These shops are cheap, serve really good coffee, pastries made in house, and most importantly... internet...Oh So Fast, and it is quiet.

Only old people come here... and while its not very tourist friendly because what kind of tourist goes to a supermarket for coffee, but I seriously doubt I’ll find a better coffee shop in...

BREAKING NEWS: Porsche Taycan sets Laguna Seca record

Monterey, California [OPPO] Today Porsche released a statement via Tweet claiming they had broken the record for fastest four door car with a blistering 1:36.554. Certainly a great achievement for EVs and their acceptance as track vehicles.
