Thieves Target Chevy Camaro test 1-1

There were some rather vague photos circulating a while back that were floated to tease people about the new-look 2016 Camaro. From the look of the pictures, I wasn't especially impressed at the time, and I wrote about it on this blog.

Toyota Preparing Another Lotus Seven-Inspired Sports Car??? test 1-1

Toyota has always been a brand that has been known for delivering well-built automobiles that can go toe-to-toe with rivals such as Volkswagen and Chevrolet, as well as Kia. However, in recent years the company has been known for its track record of producing vehicles that look bland and have the driving dynamics of an uninspired vanilla wafer. But if a new report is to be believed, Toyota could be preparing a new open-wheeled sports car concept that could make its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show later this year.

A Five-Cylinder Supercar??? Audi Pondering Five-Cylinder Engine For Future Audi R8, Lamborghini Huracan test 1-1

In a bid to comply with ever tightening fuel emissions, Audi could perhaps be taking a radical and ambitious step to meet these targets by equipping the Audi R8 and its sister car, the Lamborghini Huracan, with a five-cylinder engine, a move that could cause shockwaves in the supercar segment if rumors from inside the company are proven true.

It seems Ford has started a tradition for itself:  Every ten years they celebrate by creating a monster of a car to celebrate their historical victory at Le Mans back in 1966 with their world-beating GT40. Of course this seems to only be the second time Ford has done this, but some say life doesn't begin until your forty anyway, so we'll assume that the same can be said for anniversaries of beating the snot out of Ferraris in front of the world.

Toyota Recalls 159,000  RAV4 Models test 1-1

Well, it seems that the words, "Toyota" and "recall" are slowly becoming synonymous. Unfortunately for the Japanese car maker, they have had to recently send out a call-back for 159,700 RAV4 models built between May 13, 2003 and October 25, 2005. This time around it is because these cars have an airbag that may go off without notice and without a crash. It seems that moisture can get in and mess with the inflator, causing it to rupture, and thus deploy the the dual-stage front airbag unexpectedly.

Cruisin' Ocean City Car Show Sweetens Preakness Weekend test 1-1

This is one of my favorite times of year, and, of course, many people would probably say the same thing since the weather is warming up. However, here in Las Vegas, the weather has been nice for a while now. I love this particular time of year because I'm a fan of horse racing, and it is Triple Crown season.

Haunted Highways: A Series Exploring The Ghosts of Cars Gone By (Quickly) test 1-1

In the course of automotive history, there have been thousands of cars that have elicited almost as many emotions from us. Some cars like the Edsel or the Pontiac Aztek make us cringe and wonder if the best thing those designers ever created was their resume. Then, on the opposite end of the spectrum are the cars that we simply love instantly like the Tri-Five Chevrolets or the first generation Thunderbird.

Cars that blend the perfect mix of power, and esthetic appeal are few and far between, but when they do come along, they ingrain their images in our memories forever. One of the best examples of these cars was the very first McLaren F1 created by Ameritech.
