The industry that we know and love is facing hard times right now. Guess what? We're not going to talk about it. No, instead of spending time dwelling on the negative, which we can't really do anything about at the moment anyway, we're training our sights on the positives. There's plenty to be happy about in autodom, whether you are a fan of classic Detroit iron, forcefully-aspirated four-bangers and just about anything in between. Besides the mechanical bits that we constantly obsess over, there's also the joy of driving, though that may be the last thing on your mind in your tryptofan-induced coma. To commemorate our love of all things automotive, we've decided that a Top Ten list enumerating all the things for which Autoblog is thankful is in order. So, without further ado...

      A little detail...for the dual-clutch transmissions, you say that they're in Audis and Porsches and trickling down. Wasn't the GTI the first car to have one? Or maybe second after the Audi A3. And it could be found in the Mitsubishi Ralliart in 2009. They're trickling UP to expensive cars like BMW M-cars and Porsches, not trickling down.

      I'm bitter that I bought health and disability insurance and they refused to pay.

      I'm bitter that my wife died because of it.

      I'm bitter that the business went under and the house was foreclosed on.

      I'm bitter they told my Digitek probably killed my wife.

      But I'm thankful I lived in a great country. So great, I left.

      Not sure about the Euro Fords and ECO cars as 2 and 1, but that's just the car guy in me...

      I'm with Red on this one, and even though we had Thanksgiving a while back up here in Canada, I too tip my hat to Autoblog.. It puts a smile on my face at least once a day.

        +1 When it's all said and done they put a smile on our faces and when they don't we do it for them with our comments:)

        Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends in the USA. Better late than never (just kidding). Besides any time is a good time to give thanks for the good things in our lives. I hope this time next year all the things we are thankful for will still be here.

        Well, If I were them, I might be thankful for a sizeable audience that enables this to be a job and not a hobby

      Happy thanksgiving everyone!

      I'm thankful that I finally realized that the headlights of the V6 models are different from the V8s. I'm not sure if anybody's said or noticed this before, but on the V6 models, the amber-colored turn signals are on the outsides of the headlamps. The V8 models have amber-colored turn signals that are inside of the headlamps, next to the grille.

      Look at the V6 model on Autoblog's list. The headlamps, not the foglamps. The headlamps are different from the V8 model.

      Has anybody else seen this? This is the first time I've noticed.

      I'm thankful for my employees who've helped me put together a great project and I'm thankful for the folks at AB and ABG for consistent updates and news.

      I'm also thankful for the guys that really love and appreciate their vehicles, which keeps me going as an enthusiast. Cheers for the automobile :).

      Just wanted to chime in and say thanks to AB for your great news coverage, and just damn entertaining articles. I'm a daily reader, and this is my number one source of automotive news and information. Not a day goes by that there isn't an article (or few) worth reading on this site.

      Keep up the good work!

      Thank you Autoblog, you are my first and last source for auto news. Great list, as I am anxious to see proliferation of eco-friendly cars like Tesla Roadster.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Great list, a good combination of affordable (Pony cars, Euro Fords), nearly affordable (GT-R, ZR1), inspirational (Price no object hypercars), technological (DCT, Eco sports cars), economical, geographical, and FREE! (AB Podcast)

      Happy Thanksgiving!

      Why does Autoblog hate the Viper?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah, what's up with that?
