After seeing a Veloster on the road today, its not as ugly as it looks in pics, even in a bright, unflattering yellow, but I still do not find it the least bit appealing.

Hopefully a 3-door hatch! Coupes are nice though too, they need something to compete with Civic, tC and Forte. On that note I have to confess, I think the Kia Forte coupe is one very attractive car, the Scion tC wishes it looked that good.

Hopefully they bring over a diesel version, surely Alfa has one for this platform.

Alfa Romeo roots will keep it somewhat performance oriented, and will ensure a poor level of build quality familiar to us 1st gen owners. :)

Cover your dash in alcantra if you wan to do something more current, and that won't blind you with glare. The stock Neon dash is bad enough at times.

I understand the function over form argument, surely, but you mention being into "going fast" yet you drive a stock SOHC Neon. I drive a slow Neon too so I'm not trying to rag on you, just sayin'... Cornering capability is great, but how much do you need? I have Konis and big sways, etc. and have ne...

When I said motorcycles lane-split, I mean they do it legally. It's also a mandatory helmet state. I'm surprised you don't see more bikes and scooters here than you do. Its also not a bad city to bicycle in, i rarely drive unless I'm leaving the westside of town. I made a post on Facebook about it a...

Back in Cincinnati I saw ratty 1st and 2nd gens all the time, I do see some 2nd gens out here, most are fairly clean. Its strange seeing clean examples of crap cars that long ago all went to boneyards in the midwest, preserved 1980s GM stuff for instance, '50s pickups still being used as work trucks...

LA is ok, haven't found any car shit to get into for a while, though I am getting excited for the huge JCCS classic Japanese car show in a few weeks, and you see tons of cool old rides daily on the street. I barely drive my car anym...

That's a shame the crew was so thin, even if it did mean more carne asada for everyone else. I hope you guys all had fun, wish I coulda been there.

I'll make a new thread about LA, don't want to hijack.
