Indianapolis is certainly going to be on the tip of your tongue, and Daytona, Florida would probably come next.

This race is a true American tradition that started out in 1959. Though the big race is the ultimate highlight of the year in Daytona, there are numerous different transportation related events that attract visitors from near and far, including Daytona Bike Week.

Looking Back: The Nissan 300ZX Turbo - Second-Gen First Rate

Nissan 300ZX Turbo test 2

Instead of always trying to be ahead of the world on information and breaking news, sometimes it's better to take a deep breath and look back on what has already come to pass. Some may argue that the Golden Age of automobiles was the mid to late 1960s; however, there is a compelling argument that can be made for the mid to late 1990s as either a second Golden Age or perhaps even a Renaissance. Although instead of huge displacement and grossly overrated horsepower numbers, these later cars used forced induction and new technology to compete on the highest level of production vehicles.


 

Review of the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR: Unforgettable

Review of the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR:  Unforgettable test 1-1

It’s sad to say, but with the number of new production model cars we’ve seen over the past decade or so, we are almost becoming desensitized to them. It seems like every car company is trying to make one of every conceivable model car or truck. And, in the endless pursuit of trying to capture a piece of every single market niche, some… many… companies have all but abandoned their own identities and their own foundational characteristics. Their mission becomes blurry to consumers and their integrity seems to be sacrificed in the name of the almighty dollar. So, more and more, we see many new cars with familiar badges, but we forget what those car company’s values were built upon. And while that’s happening more and more lately, sometimes… just sometimes… it doesn’t.

The 2004 VW Touareg V10 TDI -- Proof that "VW Diesel" Wasn't Always a Derogatory Term

On: Tue, Aug 16, 2016 at 12:33PM | By: Andrew W Davis


VW Touareg V10 TDI  test 2

The Touareg: the VW Group midsize SUV for those too poor to afford an Audi Q7 or Porsche Cayenne. Or that's what most people think. And God forbid you mention your Touareg has a diesel. Most people will keep standing there just long enough to drop their gaze to see if you're wearing socks with your Birkenstocks and invent a sick family member/pet/head-of-state they have to visit—like right now—before they sprint away from you.

These two NFL players have very different automotive ideas

Antonio Brown Rolls Royce test 2

The NFL preseason has started, and through we are still in the dog days of summer, there is football in the air. I for one love the smell of football in the morning, and the upcoming season is on my mind, so it's time to write a football related car article. What does football have to do with cars you ask? The most compelling answer is that there may not be any football if car companies didn't do so much advertising during NFL games. However, we're going to go in a different direction here.


Looking Back: The Honda S2000

 The Honda S2000 test 2

When you think of classic sports cars that have been sold throughout the US over the years, there are a few cars that come to mind—certainly the venerable Corvette and the Porsche 911 take the lion's share of the credit (and deservedly so), but what others? Maybe a car like the Mazda Miata which has been going strong for more than twenty years, or more recently cars like the Porsche Boxster or even a Lotus or two might spring to mind. But more often than not, one of the most impressive traditional sports cars to ever grace a showroom in America gets almost no credit whatsoever:  The Honda S2000.
