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.
Apple's efforts to build a self-driving vehicle, dubbed "Project Titan", has been shrouded in the high levels of secrecy that have come to define the Silicon Valley giant. However, a recent report, with information from the usual anonymous insiders, appears to suggest that Apple is possibly seeking to buy-out supercar maker McLaren in what could be a key boost for the project.

Buyers wanting to put the eccentric MINI Paceman in their garage will have a shrinking window in which to do so. A new report says that the Paceman's days in production are numbered, that it is set to step aside to help free production space for the next generation BMW 5 Series.

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.

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.
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.)
With the mid-size pickup truck segment being reinvigorated by new entries, including the Chevrolet Colorado, Toyota announced that it plans to increase Tacoma production by 60,000 units in 2018. That would allow the brand to reaffirm the model's place in the sales race, while bringing the fight to the two leading entries in the mid-size pickup truck segment: The Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon.

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.

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.
