Hyundai has unveiled the 2011 Elantra (aka the Avante) at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea.
Completely redesigned, the Elantra looks impressive. It wears a 'Fluidic Sculpture' design with four-door coupe styling, HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlights and LED taillights.

2011 Maybach 62 Facelift
Daimler's most luxury automotive brand was responsible for just 200 units
sold in all of 2009. It is for this reason that rumors have repeatedly
surfaced that the Maybach brand is up for sale. Most recently, Chinese
automaker BYD was alleged to have made a bid to purchase Maybach, although
this was denied by a Daimler spokesperson.
All signs point to either a massive overhaul, a shutdown, or a sale of
Maybach. Unfortunately, the facelifted models do not dissuade us from this
thought. There simply is not enough that has been done differently on the
new vehicles to make us believe they will suddenly see a spike in sales of
2011 Ford Mustang GT - New 5.0 Ti-VCT V8 Promo
The 2011 Ford Mustang GT
features the new 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine. Packing 412 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of
torque, the engine produces 97 hp and 65 lb-ft more than the 4.6-liter V8
used in the 2010 Mustang
GT. Despite the added power, Ford projects fuel economy will rise to 17
city / 25 highway (up from 17 city / 23 highway) for models equipped with a
six-speed automatic transmission. The fuel economy rating for the six-speed
manual will remain unchanged at 16 city / 24 mpg highway. To squeeze out
the extra mileage, Ford equipped the car with Twin Independent Variable
Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT), an Electric Power Assist Steering (EPAS) system,
and an additional rear decklid seal (to improve aerodynamics).
Ford Fiesta in San Francisco promo

Hyundai Elantra 4g63 Shortblock Assembly
HOLD ON TIGHT! HERE WE GO!
We begin the blueprint and assembly on my 1992 Hyundai Elantra's
bastardized 4g63. The parts used in this are from a mash of different
brands and models outside of the typical 2.0L 4g63, but the specs and
standards I am following for its assembly are for the 2.0L DOHC.
If you want to follow along in your service manual to verify what I've done
here in this video, the processes we cover here detail pages 11C-95 through
11C-105 of the 1g Overhaul manual. I would prefer you not rip them from
the binding and throw them away, relying only on this video for
instruction... but rather use this video as a motivational guide, and as a
demonstration of the techniques involved in those sections.
You gotta do the cooking by the book.
I never had any intention of making instructional videos on this particular
car, but after it blew up I slowly realized it's actually a better case
study for how a 4g63 ticks than anything else in my driveway. There are
several reasons for this. One being that it's a mix of parts that
shouldn't be bolted together, and the other is that many of you watching my
videos aren't trying to build a 600hp engine out of aftermarket parts.
You're trying to put back together what used to be your daily driver. This
car covers those bases. Don't think for a second I won't go through this
same trouble and level of detail for the GSX. I will. When I do, having
this information in this video will give you a better understanding on how
and why I do things the way I do when I get there.
This was the shortest I could condense this video. I've never uploaded a
video this long, and I hope I never have to do it again. It took a month
to create on cutting-edge equipment, 16 hours to export, and 9 hours for
YouTube to process. My script for the voiceover is 6 times longer than the
whole script for the movie Pootie Tang. 6 times. Longer. Than a
