Defunct Automakers Made Muscle Car History

Four Classics Muscle Cars of the 1970s test 2

Classic cars come from various different distinct eras. The classic cars that strike a particular chord with me are vehicles from the 1970s, because I got my drivers license for the first time in 1977. There is a T-shirt that has been going around that says something to the effect of “I may be old, but I got to see all the best bands”. I would have to agree with the premise, and I did get to see some fantastic concerts when I was young. At the same time, I also think that there were some particularly cool cars on the road during the decade of the 1970s. Let's look at four of the models that caught my eye when I was a lad back in the day.

Mecum Anaheim test 2

The summer is officially over, and, in most parts of the country, the crisp autumn air is cooling things considerably. However, there are a couple of areas that are fortunate enough to be able to enjoy mild weather all year around. Southern California is one of them, and there has always been a very robust automotive culture in SoCal. Car clubs have been popular in the greater Los Angeles area for decades, and there is also a number of automotive museums of note that attract thousands of automotive enthusiasts each year.

 2002 Camaro SS test 2

Before the automotive world took a giant downturn in 2002 by watching one of its longest tenured power-players cease production, GM decided to give us a Camaro worth remembering. The Fourth Generation Camaro was not wholly innovative in its execution, nor was it a fully formed, new iteration of the venerable Pony Car, what it was, however, was a very stout, rip-roaring good time on any backroad, on-ramp, or traffic light in the country.

Are You Ready for Driverless Uber Cars? test 1-1

There has always been a certain stigma attached to a ride in a taxicab. Of course, in all fairness, some cab drivers are perfectly honest and polite, and some of the vehicles are nice and clean and well-maintained. However, we have all heard horror stories about rude, reckless drivers who take advantage of visiting tourists who don't know about the quickest routes from one place to another. In fact, you may have lived some of these stories in the flesh. (I know that I have.)

Review of the 2016 Dodge Charger: Harder Chargin'

On: Tue, Sep 20, 2016 at 9:05AM | By: Lou Ruggieri


 2016 Dodge Charger test 2

If we are being honest with ourselves, America, we haven't been very good at producing many sedans worth talking about. Sad to say, but unfortunately it's true. Over the past few decades, Chevy, Ford, and Chrysler have produced a very minimal number of four-door fantasy cars, and instead have come out with things like the Ford Fusion, Chevy Malibu, and the Chrysler 200, which all leave us simply wanting, and needing more from our domestic distributors. These cars are passable, sure, but they don't inspire us like some of their competitors from BMW, Audi, and even Acura.


2017 Chevy Bolt: Over 230 Miles On a Charge

2017 Chevy Bolt test 2

When I was a little kid growing up in the 1960s, there were a lot of futuristic innovations floated around on sci-fi shows and in scientific publications. Many of these gizmos, gadgets, devices, and vehicles were actually rather slow to hit the marketplace, but we are in the sweet spot of technological advancement at the present time. This certainly extends into the automotive realm in many different ways, and some of the things that are happening have been quite predictable.
