The Eastern diamond rattlesnake was the symbol of the American Revolution. The Gadsden flag is a historic American flag with it's yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike and with the words underneath "DON'T TREAD ON ME".

Hyundai/Kia are building some very nice cars.

I bought my first Hyundai in July. A Veloster Turbo, and it has been a very impressive car to date.

Based on that limited experience, I would certainly consider one if I was looking for a car in that class.

No too shabby, but I think I'd prefer the Genesis.

It's a big car, basically Hyundai's Equus equivalent.


I would personally prefer the 15' Genesis...all redesigned.

Looks nice and can still get the 420hp or so V8.

AWD being offered as well.

I'm not sure why they call both the coupe and the sedan Genesis when they seem to be entirely different cars.

my SIL owned a 2006 KIA Sedona(minivan). she got broadsided at 50mph by a mid nineties full size pickup. het her square in the drivers door.

she basically walked away from the accident(lingering nerve issues in the neck). very impressive the van protected her like it did. would recommended the Kia engineering to anyone.

i have 2013 Kia Optima SX with 50k miles on her. So far its been a great car and when the turbo kicks in it's a fairly fast stock car. Zero problems so far and I get tons of folks asking stoping me and asking about it.

the quality is not yet at Lexus but they are slowly catching up.
