    Reasonably Priced Car Goes a Little More Top Gear 1411055820

    Kia may be an automaker with a lot going for it these days, but it's not yet one that takes pains to appeal to performance enthusiasts.

    To quote Harry Hogge (played by Robert Duvall) in Days of Thunder, "rubbin, son, is racin'."

    1409956020

    Bristol Cars is one of those boutique British brands that is well beyond its heyday in the '50s and '60s; see also Peerless or Sunbeam.
