Pizza Guy's Camaro Lost, Found, Lost and Found Again

On: Mon, Aug 24, 2015 at 12:33PM | By: Gary P Garry


Pizza Guy's Camaro Lost, Found, Lost and Found Again test 1-1

If you only had a crystal ball, you could have avoided some mistakes that came back to haunt you later when you had gained additional knowledge. Along these lines, I would imagine that just about everyone has sold something that they wish they had back at some point in time.

Steve McQueen Porsche test 2

I'm a fan of old things of all kinds, because they carry history with them. Of course, I love classic cars, and I write about them often on this blog.

Elio Motors test 2

Search engines have come a long way over the years, and, like a lot of things, these innovations are fueled by monetary motivations. Why do search engines exist in the first place? The answer is that they want to sell advertising, and they do it in very subtle ways.

2016 Lexus LX570 gets a new look and lots more tech test 1-1

The 2016 Lexus LX570 is a cross between a big, cushy luxury sedan, and a... mountain goat. This ridiculously capable, leather-lined behemoth sits at the pinnacle of the luxury SUV world, challenged only by the equally capable (and expensive) 2015 Range Rover and 2015 Mercedes G550. And, for 2016, this opulent Off-Road Suite has been given some styling enhancements, along with a raft of tech goodies. Let's check it out...


 

Four Million Miles on a Volvo?

Four Million Miles on a Volvo? test 1-1

You certainly have to respect the engineering efforts when a particular automotive model becomes legendary for its longevity. I have quite a bit of mileage on me at this point, and, back in the day, when I was coming up in the 1970s, the Dodge Dart's ability to take a lickin' and keep on tickin' was legendary.

Study Finds Teens Text More When Driving Alone test 1-1

Providing perhaps the best glimpse into teenage driving habits yet, a new study reveals that more teens text and drive when driving alone, and that some of this activity involves responding to their parents. The main reason for teens' distracted driving is 'fear of missing out', the feelding that they need to stay connected at all times, and often at all costs.

Newly Assembled Tucker 48 Takes Automotive World By Storm test 1-1

Preston Tucker is a very important figure who holds an intriguing place in the history of American automobile manufacturing. When you think about cars that were built in America, the state of Michigan is naturally going to come to mind. Tucker was no exception; he was born just outside of Detroit, the Motor City, in September of 1903


Mazda CX-3: Small Car, Big Potential

Mazda CX-3:  Small Car, Big Potential test 1-1

At first glance, the Mazda CX-3 doesn't seem like much, and that's well, because it's not. In fact, that's kind of the point. In an age where we have have just about every version of every car imaginable (Porsche trucks, turbo Mustangs, and supercharged four-door wagons are a few that come to mind) why not add one more niche? The difference is, we think the CX-3 will sell, and sell well. It is an emerging market that might just take off very quickly—the subcompact SUV, or sometimes called the CUV (crossover utility vehicle) market. This segment of the automotive world already has a few players in the game like the Jeep Renegade, Nissan Juke, and the like, but the newest Mazda on the playground may just have what it takes to be king of the little hill.  


Video: The forthcoming Bentley Bentayga Can Off-road... Sort Of

Video: The forthcoming Bentley Bentayga Can Off-road... Sort Of test 1-1

A Bentley SUV was inevitable, and Crewe has just released a video to prove that their ultralux creation can indeed hack it in the wild. But it's really not all that impressive. Unless you take into account that it weighs 9 billion pounds, and has all the aerodynamic properties of a Pizza Hut...


2014 - 2015 Audi SQ5 recalled for potential steering failure

2014 - 2015 Audi SQ5 recalled for potential steering failure test 1-1

The 354hp Audi SQ5 is a hot little SUV. It offers lots of style, lots of luxury, and lots of supercharged performance. But they've discovered that its electric power steering system could fail, which could be really bad if you're driving it they way it was intended (See: Quickly).
 


Diesel-powered 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Duramax Engine Specs Finally Released

Diesel-powered 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Duramax Engine Specs Finally Released test 1-1

When GM announced they'd be making a diesel-powered midsize truck, the automotive world stood on its collective ear. Diesel engines are more efficient than gas mills, and they offer more power too. Americans don't typically buy diesel-engined vehicles, but that's slowly changing. And the 2016 Chevy Colorado Duramax offers 369 reasons to make the switch...
