Own An Interesting Car? Want To Be Pestered About It Online? TTAC Wants YOU For An AMA

Yesterday, TTAC contributor Jim Yu volunteered for a virtual Q&A on what it was like to own a Volkswagen Phaeton. I’m pleased to announce that Jim will be back soon for another AMA (Ask Me Anything) on his very first car, an isuzu Impulse. And we’ve decided to open the floor to anyone willing to contribute.

The process will work two ways. If you’d like to suggest a car, leave a comment. Hopefully, somebody with the nominated car will step up and volunteer themselves. If you have a car that you think is worthy (or if you own one of the nominated cars), send me an email, derek at ttac dot com and we can arrange something.

    I love how these comments have degenerated from "I own an interesting car," to "I own cars." A Pontiac 6000 or a Volvo P1800 is interesting. A 2012 Mustang isn't.

      @poncho Thanks, catching up on the comments on this one. I will keep that in mind. @28 Elevating it to compare with the LS eh, that's lofty praise. I don't know that the M has enough room on the inside to compete. @bball I was thinking about that, and with the already present center bar above the plate, it would look like a big unibrow.

    I would love to speak on behalf of a Chevrolet Volt, a 2002 Porsche 996, a pretty rare 2002 Volve C70 Coupe

    Such an eclectic list of requests. My collection is boring in comparison. I feel like late model cars can be left out if there are recent reviews available. I'd talk about my low n slow '63 Thunderbird or street/strip '76 Charger if there's interest.

      Danio, both bitchin rides... I think hearing about your ownership of the "new" Challenger would also be interesting. Owner's perspectives are always more interesting than a typical magazine/blog review by someone who drives 100 different cars a year and pretends they can compare the first car they drove that year with the last. (that was NOT a shot at anyone)

    I came across this site while searching as to whether or not my recent purchase is an actual "Survivor" or not. It did not pass muster. Insofar as an interesting car -- well, yinz can decide. My 'Big Bad Orange', 1969 AMC Javelin was posted on eBay for only a day or so when it was pulled. I called the guy to ask why to which he replied he had made a mistake with the "Buy it Now" option. We got to talking and made the deal. The car had been bandied about as a Survivor but, more importantly, it was a totally rust-free Southern California car (a rarity in Massachusetts). So, after a gut-wrenching experience with the auto-transport outfit, the car made it from CA to MA. It's been checked out by my crack mechanic and given a fairly clean bill of health. He DID, however, indicate that the car had been repainted at some point, so a Survivor it ain't, per the parameters set forth on this site. What it IS, though, is a powerful little monster in need of some upholstery, carpeting and misc. other items I haven't even come across yet.
