No, I am not talking about the ever popular 80’s hair style the mullet. I am talking about front wheel drive vs. rear wheel drive vehicles.
Front wheel drive vehicles are known to be less expensive, more compact, better on gas, and better in snow, mud and wet roads. They also have the advantage of predictable handling which helps you to Play It Safe!A disadvantage to front wheel drive is that it has poor acceleration and less torque, so if you are a thrill seeker you probably want to look into rear wheel drive. Rear wheel drive vehicles have better weight transfer during acceleration and better braking, giving you that nice little “butterflies in the stomach” feeling when taking sharp turns.

As 2009 draws to a close, Jalopnik reviews the 30 most expensive car crashes of 2009. This is not for the faint of heart, as you will see images of burned, crashed, and torn-apart exotic beauties like a Ferrari F50 and Lamborghini Murcielagos.
I guess it wouldn’t be a total bad thing if one of these cars belonged to you, since you’d be in a position to drop six or seven digits on transportation, but still. Anyway, here’s hoping all 30 of the owners are safe and have good car insurance to help them go shopping for a new midlife crisis toy way to get to work.
