Jesse From The Fast And The Furious Reunites With His Jetta 16 Years Later

  Jesse From The Fast And The Furious Reunites With His Jetta 16 Years Later Jesse was such an underrated character in the first Fast & Furious movie, spouting such gems as “overnight parts from Japan” and his prayer to the car gods. Sadly, he didn’t survive to the sequels. But a shop in Canada recreated his car, and the stoke is strong with nostalgia all around here. I can’t really tell if actor Chad Lindberg casually reprised his character with his style choices in this video on purpose, or like, if that’s just how he rolls.

It’s hard to pin down just what the Toyota C-HR is trying to be.

Is it a hatchback on steroids?

A shrunken SUV?

Depending on your view, it could be either but there is no mistaking the C-HR is a car that stands out in a crowd.

It looks like it would be right at home in a Transformers movie, switching from small CUV to a small robot.

The C-HR stands for compact high rider and I did like the fact during my week in the car that the C-HR is higher off the ground than most sedans and hatchbacks.

1974 Toyota Starlet - Sky Full Of Stars

  1974 Toyota Starlet - Sky Full Of Stars The rarest Toyotas you'll ever find stateside, this car is history book on wheels and a love letter to TOM'S racing heritage.Three years ago, Orly Tapay brought his '74 Toyota Starlet to Southern California's Japanese Classic Car Show (JCCS) and not many people paid attention to it. Probably because the KP45 Starlet was only ever available in Japan, and Orly's car didn't sport the iconic TOM'S touring car livery yet. However, this past spring at Toyotafest, no one could miss his Starlet as he showed off the newly applied vinyl he set out to do from the beginning, all from using a 1/24-scale toy box as a reference. Get ready for a history lesson.

The C - HR is trapped between two missions—trying to be a sports car and a rolling smartphone at the same time—and it achieves neither. At its heart, it's the Corolla of crossovers, and for a lot of folks, there's nothing wrong with that."

The Toyota C - HR is a small , stylish crossover that prioritizes looks over capability. It's mechanically related to other Toyota cars , specifically the Prius, but unlike that car , the C - HR doesn't offer a hybrid powertrain.

That extra height was good for visibility while driving on the highway and making it easier to get in and out of the car.

The Toyota C-HR features a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine which produces 144 hp and 139 lb/ft of torque that sends power to the front wheels by way of a continuously variable transmission.

That won’t win you any races at Mosport but it was more than adequate for highway driving and passing slower vehicles on Highway 7 during a drive to Port Perry.

The C-HR features three driving modes, eco, normal and sport. Unfortunately, switching the drive mode can take a few steps and might require you to take your eyes of the road.

You have to push a few buttons on the steering wheel and take a look at the screen on the dashboard to choose your driving mode. Toyota should think about changing that in the next evolution of the C-HR.

C - HR stands for Coupe High-Rider (it’s also been called Compact High Rider), and the style of the C - HR really Small crossovers (like sedans) are commodities, and they're all about checking boxes for commuters and growing families. So for now, even if you like a lot of this car , it might be best to wait.

The C - HR is smaller than Toyota's best-selling RAV4, with about half the total cargo capacity. wide, but few hipsters will care and there's lots of headroom throughout. The theme is "sexy diamond" with "kick-ass styling " – yes, these are Toyota's words – and if you like that, the C - HR is your car ; if you're

The drive in the C-HR is comfortable and all the controls are within easy reach. The seven-inch screen is a breeze to use and syncing my phone was simple but unfortunately it doesn’t come with Apple Car Play or Android Auto connect so you can forget about using your maps on your phone.

While the C-HR is classified as a small CUV it does have ample room inside for four adults.

During the week I drove my wife and neighbours to a Halloween fundraising dance for a breast cancer survivor dragon boat team, and there wasn’t any complaints about lack of legroom in the back seat.

But, there were a few complaints about the location of the handles for the rear door which is located at the top of the door. It would be difficult to open the door if you were carrying a heavy package.

The C-HR also has a nice feature when you get into the car at night. Unlock the doors and a logo with the C-HR name is projected onto the ground from the sideview mirrors.

There's no shortage of style with the CX-3, although rear passenger space is limited. Edmunds Rating. What's the fun in having a small , light crossover if it doesn't get your heart pounding The 2018 C - HR 's dashboard is dominated by a large infotainment screen that rises above the center vents.

The interior is smartly designed and surprisingly capacious front and rear, with lots of diamond shapes in unlikely places (including the headliner) to emphasize the extroverted style . While the 2018 Toyota C - HR looks like a small car , it’s not so petite inside.

And speaking of mirrors the back-up camera in the C-HR is located on the left side of the rearview mirror. Put the car in reverse and the image from the camera appears in the mirror. It is much smaller than if it was on the infotainment screen making it harder to see what might be behind you.

It was also tough to see when the sun was shining on the mirror. Like the drive mode, hopefully Toyota changes this in the next version of the car and puts the camera view on the seven-inch screen.

The C-HR is a solid car and my driveway showed me just how well the car is built.

My driveway has a slight slope and when I open the driver’s door of a new car when I park in it, inevitably the door will start to close on me as I get out of the car.

That didn’t happen with the C-HR. No matter far I opened the door on the driveway, it stayed right where I left it.

The C-HR comes in XLE and XLE Premium versions. The XLE has a nice list of standard features including 17-inch wheels; electric parking brake (a feature I really liked); hill-start assist control and Toyota’s safety sense package. That includes automatic high beans; dynamic radar cruise control; lane departure alert and pre-collision and pedestrian detection.

Subtly Spectacular 1963 Split-Window Corvette

  Subtly Spectacular 1963 Split-Window Corvette For its owner, this 1963 Corvette split-window was about turning dreams into reality by building an all-out, detail-oriented C2 restomod.How does the '63 you see here fit in? Glad you asked. In this Corvette's not-to-distant past, it was being sold with the claim that it was a real-deal, numbers-matching car, making it highly desirable if the claim were true. Of course, someone jumped on the Corvette and bought it. But, after examining the car they found it was nowhere near a numbers-matching Vette and decided their best course of action was to cut their losses, re-sell the Vette as a "project car" and find something else.

You'll Like This Car If Like it or not, the 2018 C - HR is long on style , and it's sure to be a hit with attention-seekers everywhere. The roomy and comfortable interior extends to the back seat, strong points for a class defined by compact dimensions.

My tester for the week added the premium package which features 18-inch aluminum allow wheels; push button start and blind-spot monitors.

The C-HR is a good option for families or people who don’t want a hatchback but are looking for a similar vehicle with a bit of style.

The C-HR offers that but with a few tweaks it could be a whole lot better.

Campagnolo's 40802 Might Be The Coolest Wheel In History .
Campagnolo was, for a while, the coolest automotive wheel manufacturer ever. Campy built mag wheels for Alfa, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Maserati in the late 1950s and early 1960s. They were so adept at the trade, Ferrari’s Formula One team drafted them as a supplier in the 1970s. Hell, they even supplied the lightweight chassis for NASA satellites in 1969. Cool wheels from an even cooler company, then.
