Throughout The Car Industry

Going on a vacation, even if it is for a long weekend, is something we all live for. If you love classic cars, there is nothing like taking your ride for a ride when you have time off, and the getaway itself is the ultimate payoff.
In a few years, all new cars will be required to have rear-view camera systems, based on a recent ruling by the NHTSA. Nissan's getting a head start by showing its new Smart Review Mirror in the US for the first time at this week's New York International Auto Show. Equipped on a Rogue crossover, the dual-mode mirror combines traditional mirror view with an LCD display showing video feed from the camera mounted in back.

Living, as I do, in Southeast Michigan, I am constantly subjected to Canadian radio stations, with their better playlists, fewer commercials, and just general all-around better listening experiences. Granted, Detroit was/is the home of Motown, but that’s not really my thing. No, when it comes to classic and modern rock—plus pretty much anything else that makes your ears bleed in a good way—you’ve got to set your radio to something Canuck.
So I’m not quite sure why I was so surprised to find two of the most important and sought-after new(ish) Heavy Metal Mustangs for sale in Toronto this weekend, at Collector Car Productions April 5-6 sale in Toronto. Not only do they have a “Mint 1-of-1 Prototype Pre-Production” 2012 Boss 302 for sale, there's a reverse-color 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca, too.
[Granted, that doesn’t leave you much time to get your papers in order, but it’s not like anybody’s going to care if you’re border-hopping OUT of the U.S., right?...]

Ford's Freakiest F-350 Has Been Sold in Chicago. And Now That We Can Track It, We Should Kill It... With Fire!
As you might have read in an article a colleague of mine wrote a while ago, the 1994 Dodge Ram displayed at that year’s Detroit Auto Show is blamed/praised as the pickup design that set the tone for every rig that’s followed. And for that, we all—yes, ALL—should kiss the ring of anyone involved in the creation—and implementation—of that truck.

Usually a Nissan sedan concept car wouldn't be interesting enough to intrigue us more than a month before its debut. But Nissan has been on a role of wildly styled concepts of late, not least of which is the recent Bladeglider, a triangular, electric arrow that totally rethinks what a car is all about. While the concept Nissan has planned for the upcoming Beijing Auto Show doesn't look quite that radical, it does appear to have some flair of its own.

Week after week, my heart breaks for my fellow collector car owners who fall victim to car theft. It seems like every time I look for parts for my classic, I run into craigslist ads that read something like “Please keep an eye out for my mint condition (insert classic car here), stolen from my garage”, and so on. Here’s some information you need to keep your classic better protected.
The 2014 Geneva Auto Show is giving car enthusiasts a lot to get excited about. For example, Nissan has released its new Smart Rearview Mirror which should be good news to everyone—from designers to drivers—concerned with automobiles.
Volvo recently unveiled a concept vehicle at the 2014 Geneva Auto that previewed what can be expected from this automaker in the years to come. The Concept Estate uses modern technology mixed with vintage looks to make it a fun drive, yet remain a very capable vehicle.

Renault is a marque that doesn't get a whole lot of buzz outside of Europe, but it's fixing to change that. At the Delhi Auto Show earlier this month, the French automaker revealed the first concept car that it's debuted outside of its home continent. The Kwid combines bio-inspired design with a companion drone that keeps an eye on traffic.

Only a few short years ago, the Ford Expedition reminded me of a dinosaur waiting for a comet to come wipe it out. However, Ford isn’t ready to give up on the full-size sport utility vehicle segment—they have big plans for their new Expedition. Ford has made some pretty big mid-generational changes to the 2015 model in order to stay competitive and keep consumers on the hook.
