A Diminutive Classic: The Iso Isetta Bubble Car test 1-1

When you think about the things that Italy has brought to the table (no pun intended), certain types of food may come to mind. Then again, maybe that's just me, because it's getting close to lunchtime and I'm hungry.

Anyway, you have to start with some kind of premise, and that's mine, do with it what you will. Now it's time for the seemingly seamless segue.


A Brief Outline of GMC Truck History

A GMC Truck History test 2

GMC trucks are designed for people who want capability, with a side order of luxury. Not the Bling-bling “look at me!!” sort of luxury. But actual refinement and sophistication. For those people, GMC dealers carry trucks like the GMC Sierra, GMC Canyon, and GMC Yukon Denali. They're rugged, do-anything vehicles that can fit in on the jobsite, or at the country club. And they got started all the way back in 1901...


How Cadillac Become the Standard of the World

The Cadillac Escalade test 2

Once upon a time, if you were somebody, you owned a Cadillac. Rock stars, movie stars, politicians, potentates, they all drove or were driven in a Cadillac. This once famous American marque fell from favor over the last few decades, mostly due to cost-cutting and general corporate apathy. However, exciting new models like the Cadillac CTS, Cadillac ATS, and Cadillac Escalade, have Cadillac dealers brimming with new customers. But how did Cadillac become “The standard of the world”? Let's find out...

History of Dodge test 1-1

Thanks to Fiat's ownership, the Chrysler Group's Dodge brand has enjoyed a resurgence in sales and popularity. The Dodge Dart is now a popular choice in affordable transportation. The Dodge Durango makes a great family/toy hauler. And the hemi-powered Dodge Charger has become a favorite among cops and speed-freaks alike. But where did this tire-squealin' car maker come from? Glad you asked...

2014 Camaro test 2

Usually, when you have regrets, you regret something that you did, not something that you didn't do. I have recently had the opposite experience.

Olds Rocket 88 test 2

I'm a huge fan of the American Pickers television show. I like everything about it. Mike Wolf and Frank Fritz are genuine people, and they are my kind of guys, with motor oil running through their veins.


New Help with Car Seats

New Help with Car Seats test 1-1

I’m old enough to remember a time before car seats. I can remember a time before lots of things, but this article will focus on car seats. The first “restraint” that I remember wearing in the car was similar to the leashes you see some children equipped with in public places so they don’t get too far from their parents. It covered my chest and hooked to the seat belt but left me plenty of room to stand up to see out the windows. Its purpose I assume was to keep me from flying out of the vehicle in an accident. Luckily, it was never put to the test.

The Ultimate: The History of BMW test 1-1

If you're into cars, then you've no doubt heard BMW cars referred to as “The Ultimate Driving Machine”. This is because their combination of agility and power makes them very engaging to drive. The BMW 3-Series and BMW 5-Series are commonly used as the benchmark in their segments. Even the BMW X3 and BMW X5 offer more driving excitement than any luxury SUV has a right to. So how did BMW become so popular? Let's find out...


Will Buick build a new Grand National?

GNX Rendering by Car & Driver test 2

The 1980s were a Grade A, pasteurized version of the 1950s. Your TV still sat on the floor, encased in wood. Kids still respected their elders. Our president was still staring down the Russians. Cars were slathered in chrome, and luxury still meant a vinyl roof and wire hubcaps. Not much had really changed since Ike left office; then Buick came along and changed everything.

Say hello to the future. Say hello to the Buick Grand National...
