Intelligent Robot test 2

I'm always reading the latest automotive news, and I live in Las Vegas, so the Consumer Electronics Show is very much on my radar every year. This year there was a lot of noise made about the Audi self-driving car that was making a trip from San Francisco to the CES in Las Vegas.

Inspiring Automotive Artistry: Count's Kustoms in Sin City test 1-1

If you strip it down to bland, cold sterility, a car is a form of transportation, something that is designed to get you from point A to point B. Here's the dictionary definition: "a road vehicle, typically with four wheels, powered by an internal combustion engine and able to carry a small number of people."

If You Like to Drive Nice Cars, Protect Your Credit test 1-1

They say that experience is the best teacher, and, for people like me, it has always been the only true teacher. What can I say, I was a rather wild buck when I was younger, and I always wanted to do things my own way.

The Neverending Story test 1-1

After the flurry of GM recalls last year, it’s no surprise that the automaker is still dealing with the repercussions. Of course, the major issue was the faulty ignition switch. Claims are still being received over at General Motors with 108 coming in last week alone.


Weird Car Accidents

Weird Car Accidents test 1-1

We all know that operating a motor vehicle is dangerous. The rules are simple. Don’t drink and drive. Don’t text and drive. Obey the speed limit and other traffic laws. Pay attention to the road. Sometimes this isn’t enough. It’s impossible to account for the driving habits of others on the road with you and it’s almost as impossible to compensate for someone else’s mistakes. Don’t read this article if you are easily shaken. It deals with people who weren’t reckless at all, but still died in driving related incidents. They are tragic but they come with a moral.

U.S. Auto Makers Miss the Super Bowl test 1-1

It’s nearly Super Bowl time again which means everyone is laying in supplies for chicken wings, various dips for various chips, and mapping out the best viewing position in their living rooms. Yes, Americans across the country wait all year for this. Sure, the football is great and everyone wants their team to win, but admit it, we are also eager to see the commercials. Advertisers routinely save their best commercials to be unveiled during the Super Bowl. Personally, I prefer college football, so I wait for the half hour special of nothing but the best commercials after the game.

Pay per Honk test 1-1

I listen to NPR in my car when I’m not listening to my own play lists. If that makes me old, so be it. It helps me keep in touch with the world, though, since I don’t watch the news. I would rather hear bad news than see it.


Mayweather Car Collection Goes Viral

Mayweather Collection test 2

I was visiting Las Vegas a few years ago; I'd I lived in the city previously, so I had some memories. I'm not a guy who gets up particularly early when I'm in Vegas, so the beginning of my morning was pretty close to noon.

My rental car company upgraded me to a Kia Sedona minivan, a vehicle that I never would have chosen in a million years. Much to my surprise, it was actually fun to drive. It was surprisingly powerful, and it had a high perch and great visibility.

I felt the need to share that, but this article is not about the Kia Sedona, so let's move on.

Everyone is different, and motor vehicles are used for various different purposes. There are those who are looking for luxury, some have the need for speed, and, for others, utility is the most important thing.

A Swift kick in the head--and chest, and arm--about your car's potential ''surprise'' safety systems test 1-1

There is a special kind of sound that the human brain creates when it is instantly overwhelmed with a concussive force so loud and intense that the entire skull is hammered by it rather than just the eardrum.
