RGB colourspace atlas.

A 3000+ page book displaying the entire spectrum of colours?  Useful? uhhhh……wicked cool? YES.  This 8 x 8 x 8 inch cube shaped atlas would be available in different colour axis configurations.  Would make for a lovely psychedelic coffee table book.

Toyota cars unsafe?

toyota prius

Is Toyota covering up some sort of a real unintended acceleration problem?  Could this be a re-hash of Audi in the 80s? Audi nearly went bust after this issue…could this mean that the Toyota empire is on the brink of getting into a ton of trouble? Guess we’ll have to wait to find out…

Here at IEDEI, we are just hoping that the Prius is the main car affected by this, and all the cars are collected and destroyed! ha!

Meanwhile, read this article at ABCNews

IEDEI picks 5 future classic cars.

Everybody loves to speculate on which cars are gonna be “classics” in the future.  Who is gonna be at the 2045 Barrett-Jackson selling today’s easy-to-find car for $200,000?

Here are IEDEI’s picks from the year 2000 onwards

1. Mitsubishi Evo 9/Subaru WRX STI —- cheap to buy. cheap to run. quick to run.  have alot of character.  unique in their own weird way.  the ‘modern’, hi-tech muscle cars. very VERY difficult to find good original cars that were not riced up.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Evo

2. Pontiac GTO —- Sureshot classic. Didn’t sell well.  Lots of performance. Iconic name. Defunct brand and name.  Even I want one.

3. Audi TT MK1 —- car that changed automotive design.  iconic styling. offered supercar looks and feel for much much less money.  still looks just as striking as it did on launch.  rare in the usa.

4. Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky —- More underrated products from GM.  no one bought any. weren’t the greatest performers, but offered amazing looks for around $25k, which is impossible to beat.  Pontiac and Saturn will both be gone within the next year, and these are gonna be VERY desirable among the nostalgic GM fanatics.

5. BMW Z4 Coupe —- An underrated BMW? who would have thought, since the majority of BMWs are so overrated.  Rare. Misunderstood.  M version is even cooler.  People are gonna line up for these after they are long gone.  BMW had finally made a COOL coupe.

…and the most unreliable brand is: MINI!

I used to love the MINI, thought it was a great car for a great price.  As time has moved on—i’ve become more and more weary of them; maybe because there are so many of them on the road and maybe because they’ve started to simply look dated and boring now.  Once in a while, i encounter a tricked up version on the street which looks pretty sweet.  But the run-of-the-mill Mini Cooper really is a slow and boring car.

What makes all of this worse? The MINI brand is clearly the most unreliable brand sold in the US at the moment, according to JD Power’s annuall assessment of brand reliability.

So all the hype….BMW backing….and the Mini’s reliability SUCKS.  Nice one, Mini……Another reason never to buy one…
