    There is a very solid argument to make that the Chevrolet Corvette is the most influential sports car ever to come out of a major American manufacturer. Sure, Chrysler had its Viper; Ford had its GT; and even AMC had its AMX. However, none of them has had the longevity or the prolonged cultural significance of the Corvette. When the Stingray was introduced, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles called Valet Mode “a baby monitor for your car” and said in a statement: “Anyone who has felt apprehension about handing over their keys will appreciate the peace of mind of knowing…

    The 24 Hours of LeMons has returned to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the third annual Halloween Hooptiefest, and we’ve got some fascinating machinery among the 130 or so entries that rolled into the garage for our traditional Friday car inspections. Let’s take a look! First of all, the Mod Squad Vanagon made everyone stagger back in awe. The recipe: Take one third-gen Toyota MR2 that was wrapped around a shopping-mall light pole in a fit of ill-advised hoonage, take a Vanagon body and chop 11″ out of its height, do some cutting and pasting. Yes, it is now an MR2 with a…

    24 Oct 2014 | 12:38 pm
    Volkswagen is tooting its own horn with the recent 2015 e-Golf, which is the the world’s first all-electric Golf for North America. It boasts an EPA rating of the equivalent to 126MPGe city, 105MPGe highway, and a combined cycle of 116MPGe while sporting a range of 83 miles. The range might be limited, but the e-Golf offers a lots of kit such as heated front seats, a 5.8-inch infotainment system, and satellite-navigation.

    *2015 Audi A6 TDI Pictured Audi seems to be pushing itself to the next level with new debuts and pioneering moves in the automotive industry. First is their quest to become the first automaker to offer a fully autonomous car and alternatively, there’s their mission to continue electrifying their lineup to keep electric and hybridized cars relevant, despite the realities of their practical application setting in. And these realities of electric and hybridized cars, or the fact that full EVs are still very niche ways to get from point A to B due to practical challenges, are beginning to…

    The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has a massive cult following and continues to this day to be a popular item. Mercedes once attempted to replace the G-Class but there was such an uproar from customers, they decided to continue making the current one instead. Now, it seems the Gelandewagen is set to undergo a major overhaul, but Daimler AG’s head, Dieter Zetsche, told Bloomberg the new G-Class won’t be changing too much visually. It will maintain its brutish off-road appearance, which makes it so unique. “It has to continue as it looks today,” Zetsche said to Bloomberg.
  • Report: Audi to drop the V8 for its RS4, sadly

    admin

    The demand for greater fuel economy seems to be killing the V8 and lately, Audi’s been stringent on its offerings of V8s, simply because they’ve found more economical alternatives, at least on paper. Continuing the trend is the next RS4 wagon estate and while we don’t receive that model here in the states, it’s still sad to hear that rumors suggest the RS4 could lose its V8 entirely. Australia’s Motoring is back with the supposed details after speaking with Quattro GmbH’s managing director, Heinz Hollerweger. According to Mr. Heinz, the 4.2L V8 current…

  • Chart Of The Day: Buick’s Fast Fall And Steady Rise

    25 Oct 2014 | 4:53 am
    Through the first nine months of 2014, U.S. Buick volume is up 8% to 170,764 units, nearly 50,000 sales back of Lexus, sales of which have risen 16%. Though Buick, the 19th-best-selling auto brand in America, trails Lexus, the 18th-best-selling brand, by a wide margin, Buick has opened up a wide lead over America’s three next-best-selling brands, Audi, Cadillac, and Acura.  Three-quarters of 2014 tells us only a very little bit about Buick’s recent history. Compared with 2002, when today’s COTD begins, only one Buick nameplate still exists. And while Buick owned 2.6% of the…
  • Chart Of The Day: 8 Years A Slave

    Derek Kreindler
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:28 am
    Today’s Chart comes from J.D. Power, showing the growth of long term loans in the Canadian car market. While 96 month loans are just starting to hit American consumers, the 8 year loan terms have been present in the Great White North for some time. A friend was recently looking at a modestly equipped Big Three Pickup, which would be used for work. The truck, with an MSRP of $35,000 CAD (plus 13 percent sales tax), was offered at 96 months for 3.99%. That would have added up to $6,000 in interest payments over the loan term. Faced with less disposable income and higher vehicle costs,…
  • On Tesla, Michigan And Factory Stores

    Mike Smitka
    24 Oct 2014 | 8:06 am
    Bloomberg’s op-ed “Detroit Fights Innovation — Again” is not about the Detroit Three of GM, Ford and Fiat Chrysler [merger consummated Oct 12th] or even manufacturers, but about Michigan and (indirectly) automotive dealers. It makes the very tenuous claim that a ruling blocking Tesla from running company stores (which is in fact in line with existing state law) is tacit protectionism that represents a step backward. Indeed, the article implies that the restriction is ultimately aimed at preventing a Chinese invasion. In fact the policy is misguided because history…

Automotive News reports the recall total for Nissan linked to the airbags since 2013 totalled nearly 700,000 prior to the additional vehicles called back. The recall affects vehicles outside of the United States, including the Cube and Micra/March, with the majority of the models located in the automaker’s home market of Japan. Meanwhile, Honda is replacing the defective units in 3.5 million vehicles in 11 states in the U.S. where high humidity could lead to an airbag…

    McLaren P1 GTR Test: A little More Than a Car The McLaren P1 has 903 horsepower, and apparently that is not enough. The new track-focused P1 GTR will have 986 horsepower, as well as being stripped down to the essentials. A criticism of today’s automotive industry is that as cars become more and more powerful, it becomes increasingly difficult to get the best performance out of the car; they are simply too fast for the every-day millionaire. McLaren, however, has addressed this criticism with what each lucky owner of a P1 GTR will receive (in addition to the car): the McLaren Driver Program.

    2015 Porsche Carrera GTS  Porsche has announced the second generation of the 911 Carrera GTS, ahead of its arrival in showrooms this November. ‘Gran Turismo Sport’– The combination of letters originates from the 904 Carrera GTS, a racecar dating back to 1963 that could also be registered for use on public roads. In the 1980s and 1990s, the 924 GTS and 928 GTS cultivated this principle. It was reborn in 2007 in the form of the Cayenne GTS, and was subsequently applied to the ‘Type 997’ 911 Carrera and the Panamera. With the new model, Porsche is extending the GTS principle…

    We inspected the 132 entries at the third annual Halloween Hooptiefest 24 Hours of LeMons on Friday, and today we raced. We saw many bent fenders, many ventilated engine blocks, and more lead changes than we could follow during the course of the day. When the dust settled, though, we were able to sort out all the leaders and runners-up in the three LeMons classes. Here’s what we’ve got. This being the Halloween race, the cars festooned with giant witches-on-brooms and wiggly spider legs seemed especially appropriate. Leading Class A is a car we’ve seen take three overall…

And the Subaru WRX STI has only one natural predator: the dead-car-rolling Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, the product of an enterprise that seems a little on the fence about whether it wants to sell cars or get deeper into the uranium business.

    Robert Sorokanich
    24 Oct 2014 | 3:19 pm
    The 2015 Chrysler 200 is strikingly handsome—particularly for its price range—but the mid-size sedan needs something more distinctive to stand out in its crowded segment. Ahead of next month’s blowout SEMA show, we got a peek at the juiced-up 200S that Chrysler will display at the Vegas extravaganza. Now this is more like it.Most notable is the car’s improved stance. Dropped down on a Mopar coil-over kit, the sedan looks decidedly more sinister. Chrysler says the dropped suspension will sharpen the car’s handling response, an area that definitely needs improvement.

    Dodge has a fascinating history of building hot compacts, one prominent example being the Omni GLHS by Shelby, while the Caliber SRT4 marked a low point in terms of style and refinement. For the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas, the carmaker has taken its sensible Dart and tweaked it significantly to make it digestible to more discerning enthusiasts. Painted in bright orange with matte black as a contrast color, and fitted with a prominent rear spoiler and diffuser, this Dart R/T concept looks pleasantly aggressive. But it also looks rather refined, thanks to a revised front fascia that turns the…

    30 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Stereo systems from automakers have gotten so good that it’s often difficult to justify replacing or upgrading the audio components with aftermarket gear, which used to be de rigueur for discerning music lovers. But even as factory audio systems have improved, the weakest link — and the most frequent aftermarket upgrade — remains the need for better bass and a separate subwoofer. Automakers and their technology partners have responded to this shortcoming with dedicated and often larger subwoofers that can pound out low frequencies. Examples include the 10-inch Rockford…

    While some sort of “eco meter” is now found on many vehicles, which allows drivers to instantaneously check how their driving style affects their fuel economy (and pocketbook), some of the displays are getting even more granular. For example, a 2015 Audi A3 I recently tested had an “efficiency program” display as part of the driver information system in the instrument panel that, of course, shows current fuel economy. But it also displays how certain car features — such as air conditioning — influence mpg. It uses distance traveled and consumption data from the trip computer…

Illness can quickly spread in a dealership, taking out many of your employees, and also increasing safety risk in a time when you are short staffed and your employees are not at their normal 100%. Instilling good health habits at your dealership will allow you continued success throughout the winter season. Here are some common sense tips to minimize the spread of illness: Stay home: whenever possible, avoid contaminating the…

    2 Oct 2014 | 10:57 am
    There are trips that one dreams about, and trips that one never forgets. My trip to Baja to test the new BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain T/A tires falls into the latter category. I never before had the opportunity to rub elbows with Baja off-road legends and drive and co-drive roughly 300 miles of the legendary Baja 1000 off-road course, and most likely I never will again. BFGoodrich was so confident in their new all-terrain radials that they flew me and several other journalists to Baja to put the new tires to the test in the environment they were developed in. The tires survived what we threw at…

    I made an interesting discovery recently when I got my hands on a tome called “Top Muscle: The Rarest Cars from America’s Fastest Decade.” The team at Motorbooks had sent it to me for review and—unsurprisingly—I was expecting to learn a thing or two about rare muscle-cars when it arrived. Now, that did happen, but before I even opened it, I was first struck by the uncanny glow of the Daytona Yellow 1969 Douglass-Yenko Super Camaro on the front. The car had a nearly three-dimensional presence that brought its streamlined shape to life in a way you rarely see on the…

    Mercedes-Benz (CLA), Lincoln (MKC) and Audi (A3) aren’t the only automakers searching for additional sales volume by moving downmarket to smaller vehicles that are intended to hopefully maintain the brand’s character at a lower price point. The idea is to then keep those buyers as they move to larger, more-profitable models. The latest brand to take a play from this book is Jeep, with the all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade. The Renegade looks like no other vehicle, and like no other Jeep, yet it still is clearly a Jeep. Forget what you may read about a Fiat-based front wheel drive…

  • NY Auto Show: 2015 Toyota Camry

    Chris Haak
    16 Apr 2014 | 7:33 am
    Having a track record of success can lead to complacency. Success is not easy and is not typically sustainable without considerable effort. In Toyota’s case, having the Camry as the best-selling car (note: full-size trucks kill it in sales) for the past dozen years allowed it to take its eye off the ball for the past few. The new-for-2012 Camry attempted to add a nicer interior, more style, and better performance, but competitors are constantly upping their game, and the 2012 Camry was not setting the class benchmark. It remains to be seen whether the new 2015 Camry does until we have…

  • 2015 Ford F-150: 30 MPG Magic?

    mpg-o-editor
    7 Jun 2014 | 7:43 am
    The thought of a half-ton pickup truck achieving 30 miles per gallon (MPG) with a gasoline engine was unfathomable, just a few years ago. A 30 MPG rating for the 2015 Ford F-150 would be nothing short of remarkable. While the F-150′s gas mileage ratings have not been released for 2015, engineering leaps at Ford may have put that magic thirty within reach. The savings potential is based on three core technologies: lightweighting, displacement downsizing, and aerodynamics. The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for years on end. A significant drop in the F150’s fuel…

At its core, it asks a simple question: is it possible to increase the fuel efficiency of an older vehicle and to what degree? But it wraps that question in a bigger idea, specifically: can you bring new life to old paint by infusing high tech on a low budget? Ain’t Fuelin’ draws inspiration from a host of big time shows that paved the way, from Overhaulin’ and Mythbusters to Pimp My Ride and Top Gear. It’s been a long time coming…

    Here comes Ford with all-new aluminum-bodied F-150s, lighter by several hundred pounds than the 2014s they replace, with even better capabilities and substantially more available features. Famed Lotus race-car designer/builder Colin Chapman touted "adding lightness" (instead of more power) to make his cars lap faster, and that "enlightened" approach works equally well for pickup trucks. A lighter truck body enables a lighter frame, lighter suspension, lighter brakes, lighter powertrain, etc. A lighter truck handles better, stops shorter and performs better.

    Nissan might have gotten off on the wrong foot earlier this year, when they introduced the 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR, a brand new trim level, as the “sporty” model in the lineup. After all, it’s hard to be the “sporty” version when you don’t have any performance upgrades. Instead, they should have marketed the Versa Note SR as the “better” version of the Versa Note family. What this car does get over its brothers and sisters is a more refined and attractive look, a much improved interior and wider tires at a low price. Now that’s a…

Its iconic Maserati grille and triple front-fender air vents, its sculpted curves and creases, its fluid coupe-like roofline, its classic trident logos and its sinewy athletic stance add up to a unique blend of Italian sportiness and elegance.

    Theophilus Chin has been chopping and rendering cars since at least January 2009. While I don't always like everything he does, the Porsche Cayman Station Wagon (a.k.a. the Porsche Cayvan) he posted earlier this week looks like something I wouldn't mind seeing come off the production line. If his work looks familiar that's because we've featured it here on FLATSIXES.com before. Remember when we asked you if Porsche should build a 3-door Macan? That was Chin's work as well. Not all of Chin's work resonates with me. I wasn't a fan of his compact hatchback rendering or his Cayenne coupe.

    Does your Porsche have an "overtake" button? How about a button for the automated "drink system". I'm guessing it doesn't. However, those are just 2 of the 24 buttons on the Porsche 919 Steering Wheel. Combine those with 6 paddles, 5 rotary dials and a honking big screen in the middle of it and you get one mighty complex steering wheel. As Porsche said in their press release about it, "setting the direction is the most trivial task of the steering wheel in the Porsche 919 Hybrid". Let's take a closer look.

  • Hemmings Find of the Day – 1959 Land Rover Series II Model 88

    Kurt Ernst
    25 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    There’s a certain mechanical honesty to early Land Rovers that’s missing from modern SUVs. Simple, (relatively) reliable and able to competently traverse a wide variety of terrain, buying a Land Rover is, in a way, akin to parking peace of mind in your garage. This 1959 Land Rover Series II Model 88, for sale on Hemmings.com, is described by its current owner as “structurally restored,” and used on an occasional basis only. Not cosmetically perfect, the aluminum body has the expected dents from 55 years of non-highway use, yet the relatively recent paint still appears…

    * If you think the rear end of John Osborn’s fiberglass-bodied Oldsmobile looked radical, check out the front end, as seen in the few photos Geoff Hacker of Forgotten Fiberglass and Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama have managed to piece together. * With former racing driver Randy Lanier now out of jail, Patrick George at Jalopnik took a look at both his career and the marijuana smuggling operation that financed his racing career and that led to him spending the last quarter century in jail.

As the year winds down, the Italian automaker has announced a series of Cento anni di Maserati (100 years of Maserati) driving tours for owners in four key U.S. cities, including Washington, D.C.; Miami, Florida; Los Angeles, California; and Chicago, Illinois.

    So, apparently, while the folks at CERN – the European Organization for Nuclear Research – have been figuring out string theory and all 11 dimensions and the differences between a muon and a quark, they haven’t really been taking great pains to caption the photos in their archive, so they’ve tossed about 12,000 photos out to the public for help identifying them. Of course, we’re happy to oblige, particularly when it comes to photos with cars in them, so we’ve selected three here for our carspotting series, all dating from 1969. What do you see here?
  • Hemmings Finds of the Day – 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminators

    24 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Most collectors, when going after multiple versions of the same model of car, try to go for a little variety – one of each color, maybe, or one of every bodystyle/drivetrain/model year. Not the seller of these two Competition Blue 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminators available on Hemmings.com, which share not only external appearances, but also the same 428 Cobra Jet drivetrain and the same build date. Only minor differences separate the two, such as the interiors. Perfect pair, perhaps, for identical twins? From the seller’s description: This is a unique oppurtunity to buy two nearly…

    NMA
    24 Oct 2014 | 7:30 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Good things come in small packages — but sometimes, they’re maybe a bit too small. Hence, Lexus’ re-bopp of the IS series sport sedan. It’s bigger now — with a passenger-viable backseat. Unlike its most obvious competitor — the Mercedes-Benz CLA. Which is a gorgeous car and a hell of deal, with a brilliant drivetrain (potent turbo four, almost 40 MPG on the highway) but a medieval back seat (27.1 inches of legroom, almost five inches less than a Fiat 500’s backseats . . . and three inches less headroom, too).

    By John Carr, NMA Massachusetts Activist You may have heard that New York city cut the speed limit from 30 to 25. That won’t have any effect on safety. I don’t think Mayor de Blasio is dumb enough to think it will. It’s a symbolic gesture — saying “Vision Zero” gets him some media time — or a revenue grab. According to NHTSA, two thirds of fatal accidents could not be prevented by driving slower. Their figure is based on police reports. While individual reports are unreliable, the composite figure is plausible. So why all the talk about speed? Because we can…
  • New Car “Buyers”

    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Who can afford to spend $30,000 — the average purchase price paid as of 2013 — on a new car? The answer is … very few. Most new car “buyers” are in fact debtors. They sign loan documents and make monthly payments. Typically, for five years, the length of the average new car loan. Some extend this to six years — and seven years is not unheard of. Some of you may remember when the typical new car loan was three years. What’s happened? Several things. First — and most obviously — cars have become more…

To make some extra money, the city is holding a public auction on November 5 where it's getting rid of what it is calling surplus vehicles. Usually, Autoblog wouldn't cover a municipal auction, but a few of the lots are so interestingly bizarre that they need to be seen. Looking through the items, you find pretty much all of the machinery a city…

    Filed under: Aftermarket, SEMA Show, Sedan, Performance, Videos, Kia Kia is getting all set for this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and among its vehicles is something that seems pretty mean. The Korean company is keeping details quiet about what's under the hood of what it calls the High-Performance K900, but from listening to this video it certainly sounds fantastic with quite a meaty growl. There might be some form of forced induction going on, though we can't say for sure. Elsewhere on the car, Kia isn't being so tight-lipped.

  • Ford decides C-Max shoppers not interested in fuel economy

    Filed under: Hybrid, MPG, Ford If you say a car - the Ford C-Max Hybrid, for example - is "fun to drive," can anyone really come up with some empirical evidence against your claim? What about calling it "versatile"? We wonder if Ford has been thinking along these lines when it talks about the green little hatch. Ford is refocusing its sales strategy for the C-Max Hybrid after the model took a sales hit on both sides of the Atlantic recently, Automotive News reports. That sales dropoff may stem from the fact that Ford has had to revise its fuel-economy figures downward for the C-Max twice…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Though they aren’t as common as they used to be, “stripper” cars (i.e. completely bereft of all but the most basic equipment and wearing steel wheels and unpainted black plastic bumpers) still hold a sort of subversive appeal in our eyes.

Now performance and sports cars (at least modern ones) generally aren’t offered as strippers as they are,…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life As automotive instant collectibles go, few made within the last decade can hold a candle to the BMW 1 Series M Coupe. Granted, the current M235i is nearly as fast, but its much greater abundance, styling that’s basically identical to that of the more pedestrian 2 Series models, and the fact that it isn’t a full-blown M Car conspire to make it altogether less special. However, BMW and M GmbH have something special waiting in the wings and, if these renderings from Autocar are any indication, the M2 (as it will most certainly be called) will look as…

    21 Oct 2014 | 8:53 am
    The Toyota Camry continues to be a dominant player in an increasingly competitive segment. Yet that dominance has often bewildered competing brands considering that the Camry has long been viewed as a bit stodgy. For years Toyota attempted to make the Camry appeal to the widest group of consumers possible, and that made its styling plain and undistinctive. While it certainly has continued to be successful, Toyota took plenty of criticism from consumers and critics alike, which prompted a new direction for the 2015 model year. Despite continuing success in sales, Toyota decided to infuse a bit…

While Honda’s venerable CR-V isn’t all-new for the upcoming model year, the crossover was able to snag the coveted title thanks a wide range of subtle but critical improvements that helped it beat 18 other all-new or redesigned SUVs. Among the biggest improvements was the addition of a continuously variable transmission that replaced the CR-V’s 5-speed transmission. This component helped contribute to better fuel economy than the previous model year. Additionally, Motor Trend editors noted…

    LeBron James recently made some big news by promoting the Kia K900, not because he was being paid, but because he’s a big fan of the car. He has since partnered with Kia to promote its luxury brand. LeBron is not a small man, but the K900 seems to be a good fit for him. But that got us thinking: Is the K900 really the best fit for LeBron? We looked at our data to determine which vehicles can best fit someone of LeBron’s stature. These cars are truly fit for a “King,” or at least a very big and/or tall individual. We looked at a number of criteria to determine how much…

    When gas prices hit or exceed $4 per gallon, the cost to fill up my Audi Q7 gets scarily close to $100. I drive to conserve fuel by accelerating slowly, cruising on the highway at about 60-65 miles per hour, and not letting the engine run to warm up the car in the driveway. At my local Costco this weekend, I pulled up and saw what I thought was a price of $3.94 on the pump’s display. Closer inspection showed a price of $3.44, and I nearly jumped for joy. Fifty cents per gallon, at about 18 gallons, saved a good nine dollars and made me a happy dude. Gas prices are falling across the…

    Active Noise Control sounds like a feature you would want on your next car. The name implies that the car actively controls the noise you hear, or don’t hear, while driving. That’s accurate, but Ford this week is catching all kinds of negative attention for the feature, which comes standard on all 2015 Mustangs equipped with the 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine. You see, Active Noise Control doesn’t limit the sound coming into the cabin, it creates it. Since a 4-cylinder doesn’t sound like a muscle car, Ford pipes in some satisfying engine notes to make things feel like…

Jeeps and Land Rovers have been extraordinarily popular in the UK for decades, and even though the city car has risen in popularity recently, there’s still a huge market and demand for people carriers or MPVs.

    My son is 21 now and no longer a teen driver, but this is still a subject that is close to my heart: More teens die in motor vehicle crashes than from any other cause of death, about 2,500 per year. Fatalities are split almost equally between teen drivers (56 percent) and passengers (44 percent), and in half of the fatal crashes, the teen was not wearing a seat belt. Teen Driver Safety Week gives me a regular reason to visit this topic, and remind young drivers to be safe every week of the year. This is important every single day because one in four teens surveyed said they don’t use a seat…
  • Test Drive a Buick to Raise Funds for High School Extracurriculars

    AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women
    20 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    By Derek Handova It’s back to school time. Learning is in full swing on campus when the bell rings. And after hours, there’s a full slate of extracurricular activities. Unfortunately, with the state of educational backing in many districts, only the essentials get funded. Many programs could be at risk. That’s why outside resources are vitally important. In that spirit this last September, Buick started a full-scale initiative to help local high schools across the country raise money for after-class programs. In partnership with its dealers, Buick looks to help offset the rising cost of…
  • Here’s a New Way to Steal Cars: Stolen IDs

    AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    Forget hot-wiring. As new technology makes it harder to steal cars the old-fashioned way, today’s thieves are using more sophisticated “white-collar” methods to get their hands on a set of wheels, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB).   The NICB and its law enforcement partners report a growing number of these cases which, in legal terms, constitute financial fraud. Therefore, these stolen vehicles are not counted as auto thefts -- which may partially account for the steady decline in auto theft crime statistics over the past two decades. Over the next few months,…

  • F1: Bernie Ecclestone confirms Marussia won't race in America

    24 Oct 2014 | 9:00 pm
    From GMM Marussia will join fellow F1 straggler Caterham in not racing in Austin next weekend, Bernie Ecclestone has announced. The news follows the sport's chief executive giving Caterham special dispensation to miss the US-Brazil double header as it enters administration. But we had reported on Friday that the grid may in fact shrink from its usual 22 to just 18 cars in Austin, because Marussia - grief-stricken after the Jules Bianchi crash - was struggling to find a necessary cash injection to ship its cars and equipment from the UK for the trek to America. "This is happening while the…

    Canadian driver Lance Stroll enjoyed quite a year in 2014, despite having just moved on from karting. Driving for Prema Powerteam, he secured 10 wins and 14 podium finishes in only 17 starts to grab the title in his rookie season. Stroll, who will turn 16 next week, took the time to acknowledge how much his team helped him throughout the year, before moving to his next challenge: the European F3 championship.

    Motorsport sensation Ken Block returned to stage rallying after an 8-month break, this week-end as he entered Rally Spain, round 12 of the WRC season. The American has not been shining as much as he might be used to, behind the wheel of his Ford Fiesta RS WRC. But he is enjoying the mix tarmac and gravel stages in the Salou area. At the end of Saturday, Block was sitting 12th overall, over 10 minutes down on overall lead Sébastien Ogier. "Incredible fun. I wish I had been a little faster and could commit to the corners, but it's been three years since I've raced on tarmac," commented Block.

    There is nothing elegant about this imposing Toyota. When Toyota introduced its 4Runner 30 years ago, it was on the leading edge of what became known as the SUV craze. Thirty years later, with the heyday of the SUV shrinking it is still as competitive and capable as it was three decades ago. The current Toyota 4Runner is no looker. But it more than compensates with its off-road capabilities. These trucks were created with a particular focus on heavy-duty off-road driving, where the 4Runner is right at home.

    Your table scraps could be put to good use in the near future, as Chevrolet will be releasing a version of its Impala sedan that runs on waste converted to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). But while you won’t be able to just toss trash into your tank like Doc Brown in Back to the Future Part II, the savings and environment benefits are definitely in favor of CNG. The environment motivation for the creation of CNG-only vehicles like the 2015 Chevy Impala Bi-Fuel appears to be just as strong as that of electric cars, as the fuel is produced from garbage and other waste by companies like…

    Owning a luxury car for most people is a sign that you are truly successful.

For those who don’t have one, we dream about it every time we see one on the street, on television, read about them and picture ourselves driving them. The price of one of these cars is always in our minds and often we think about what we can do to make it possible to afford one. But while we are doing this we rarely consider the cost of owning one of these cars and if the badge, the…

If you have yet to hear about this new Mustang model, it features a 2.3-liter Ecoboost engine, which brings the Mustang back to the world of turbo. But despite that sounding like a downgrade, the Ecoboost boasts an impressive 310 hp and a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds. It also gets 32 miles to the gallon on the highway, which is the best of any pony car this generation. So while…

  • Find the Right Motorcycle Riding Club

    Brendan
    20 Oct 2014 | 12:44 pm
    Riding clubs are a great way for riders to connect—and, of course, hit the road—with other enthusiasts. But even a quick Internet search yields a staggering number of club options, especially in warm weather areas. So, how do you narrow down your choices and find a comfortable group of motorcycle riders? Riding Clubs: What They Are & What They’re Not Long story short: a motorcycle riding club isn’t a “motorcycle gang.” Instead, a riding club is simply a group of riders organized around an idea—enthusiasm for a particular brand of bike—and dedicated to…

  • Automotive Addicts takes a quick spin in the 2015 BMW i8

    25 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    Rarely does a vehicle come along that is so refreshing, so surprising, that a quick walk around and test drive makes you wonder if you are actually looking at the future of the automobile. The 2015 BMW i8, with it’s amazingly efficient hybrid drivetrain, does just that, even for a couple of guys who get to look at the latest and greatest in the industry all the time. Powered by a turbocharged 1.5L three-cylinder engine and electric motor duo, the i8 produces 357 hp and accelerates from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and the 1/4 mile in 12.4 seconds before reaching a maximum speed of 155 mph.

  • Japanese Convertibles: The 1985 Ibanez Roadstar II and 2014 Lexus IS 350 C

    Chris Brewer
    22 Oct 2014 | 8:08 am
    If a car and guitar could be distant cousins, I think the DNA of this mint condition all-original 1985 Ibanez Roadstar II RS440 and equally spotless 2014 Lexus IS 350 C convertible would reveal a genetic match. Both were built by influential and best selling Japanese companies that have flourished in the US market, Ibanez and Lexus are known for enduring quality that ages well and, when cared for properly, provides decades of service. The Ibanez Roadstar II RS440 was built in 1985 at the Terada Plant in Nagoya, Japan by the now 102 year old Terada Musical Instrument Company and exported to…
  • 2015 Toyota Camry First Driving Impressions

    22 Oct 2014 | 6:20 am
    I can remember a time when I considered buying a Toyota Camry. I am not sure what was going through my mind at the time, about to tie the knot and set sail on a new life. Maybe it was the pressure of starting a family, or maybe I didn’t want the hassle of settling on a vehicle I wasn’t too sure would last me many years into the none-single life. Either way, the Toyota Camry was a fall-back, a no brainer in my situation, that I could bank on being a constant in my new relationship. I knew, without a doubt, that the Toyota Camry was something almost everyone has experienced, even if you…

  • Asgard Performance Bi-Turbo VW Golf

    admin
    21 Oct 2014 | 3:15 pm
    There are some radical engine swaps made on VW Golfs, but this is the first time we see on of this on a VW Golf Mk4. Asgard Performance managed to put a 10 cilinder Lamborghini engine on a MK4 R32. The result is on of the most extreme MK4s in existence. The engine power is near 1500ps and the engine produces 1760Nm torque. Weight is just 900kg and that makes a power to weight ratio of 0.75 hp per pound or 1.66ps per kg. The only problem is that there aren’t yet any videos of the car in motion… The post Asgard Performance Bi-Turbo VW Golf appeared first on VW Tuning Mag.

First up, the Golf VII GTI has received a more aggressive body featuring carbon fiber front spoiler lip, side skirts and rear lip along with a roof-mounted wing and a vented hood also made from carbon fiber. It now benefits from a titanium exhaust system which is 50 percent lighter than the stock stainless steel exhaust together, along with a stage two induction and remapped ECU which has bumped output of the four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine from 230 HP (169 kW) to more than 290 HP (213…

    With the increase in racing seats, bolt-in roll cages and other race-inspired modifications within the Volkswagen scene, we’ve seen our fair share of deleted rear seats and false floor kits. We can certainly appreciate those who have gone the DIY route, but after seeing the kits available from Euro Kreations, we have to wonder why you’d want to. Starting at $279 and available for the third, fourth, fifth and sixth generation Golf and GTI (as well as the first generation Audi TT), the Euro Kreations kits are an extremely clean way to fill the void left after a rear seat removal.

Speaking from personal experience, they can come from a diverse range of influences.. Anything from the desire to tick off some kind of bucket list, through to scene acceptance, or indeed, good commercial sense. In the case of Milltek’s managing director, Steve Pound, there’s more than a hint of the latter…

    Reader and Seattle photographer Yours by John recently went on a sick photoshoot with twin orange Audi RS5s and was kind enough to share the pictures here – just in time for Halloween! You may remember John from his Sepang Blue RS5 feature as well as his Sprint Blue B7 S4, but as they say “orange is the new black” and this photoshoot delivers with not just one but two Solar Orange Rs5s… John met up with several RS5 owners near the Snoqualmie Falls area of Washington to take these pictures, then edited the photos afterwards to give the neat effects posted here.

    This latest featured ride comes to us from Norway and is modded to the max! The owner Steffen bought the car with some mods already done to it, but as many enthusiasts know there is always more to be done. Steffen started with the interior, scouting some beautiful RS4 bucket seats off ebay.de from a totaled RS4. Steffen tells me they’re probably his favorite modification to the car, which is saying something. To complete the interior, he found a custom TTRS steering wheel with carbon fiber accents which is incredibly beautiful. Next came the powertrain and handling – the previous…

Like previous years this “Euro Gathering” had many of the pros of a good car show without any of the cons; there…

According to a ChronicleLive report, the vintage car will be going under the gavel on November 1 at Village Auctions in North Tyne Industrial Estate, Benton.Although the two-seater car was inspired by the design of the 1928 Mercedes SSK, its engine was from a Volkswagen Beetle.

    Work is well underway on a higher-performance version of the Mercedes-AMG GT to go head to head with the Porsche 911 GT3. Speaking with UK publication Autocar, Mercedes-AMG chief Tobias Moers revealed the Affalterbach-based manufacturer’s vision for the halo model of the GT range. “A street-legal version of our GT3 racecar – that sounds like a pretty good idea,” Moers said. He confirmed AMG would not copy its German rival by badging the car ‘GT3’, nor would it wear the Black Series label. “GT3 belongs to the other company,” Moers said, alluding to Porsche. “We will find…

    About 850,000 Audi A4 models have been recalled around the world to fix faulty software that may prevent the front airbags from deploying in a crash. The recall affects current-generation Audi A4 sedan and Avant and Allroad wagon variants produced between November 2011 and this month. The issue is unrelated to the multi-million-vehicle Takata airbag recall that has impacted several car makers around the world. Almost half of the vehicles recalled are in Germany and China, while approximately 100,000 are in the US. Audi Australia confirmed that 6716 model-year 2013, 2014 and 2015 A4s are…

  • Next-gen Jeep Wrangler to keep body-on-frame structure, may switch to aluminium – report

    Derek Fung

    The latest reports indicate that the 2017 Jeep Wrangler will continue to feature traditional body-on-frame construction. Anonymous sources have told Automotive News that the next-generation Wrangler, expected to debut in 2017, will carry on with a body-on-frame layout. If true, this could represent a step back from statements made by Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne earlier this month. During Marchionne’s press conference at the Paris motor show, he said that the next-generation Wrangler could use aluminium for its body and employ smaller, turbocharged engines. Both of these measures…

  • The PetrolBlog review: Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC Lineartronic

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:24 am
    The Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC is an impossible car to love. In fact, I don’t even think Subaru UK is too fond of the WRX STI’s frumpy and rather dowdy sibling. Its return to the UK was announced with little fanfare back in March, it went on sale in May and yet very few people know of its existence. It’s understandable really. To Subaru UK, the Impreza WRX STI must be like an excitable puppy – a high profile icon with an ability to sprinkle magic across the entire Subaru range. It would probably lick your face, if you asked it nicely. The Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC, on the…

    16 Oct 2014 | 4:16 am
    You could spend an awful lot of time and money ‘upgrading’ your new MINI 3-door Hatch. I had a play with the online configurator and it wasn’t long before my £16,450 Cooper D was the wrong side of £25,000. Don’t get me wrong, the end result was a seriously well-equipped car, but to spend that amount of cash on a new MINI would be bunkum. The good news is, you don’t need to. On a wet and windy day in the Cotswolds, I had a play in the all-new MINI One with MINI’s new 3-cylinder, 1.2-litre petrol engine and I’m delighted to report it’s nothing short of brilliant.

    Forthcoming changes to the MOT test could spell an end for the 3-spoke alloy wheel, PetrolBlog has learnt. Under the planned new Style and Decency section of the annual MOT test, 3-spoke alloy wheels could be driven off the road, with any car wearing them receiving an instant failure notice. This is bad news for motorists with poor taste, but excellent news for the rest of us who have been forced to live with the terrible spectacle for far too many years. The news comes as the Department for Transport seeks to rid the streets of horrendous aftermarket modifications and to save carmakers…
  • Local radio station under fire for misleading listeners

    8 Oct 2014 | 10:45 am
    A local radio station came under fire today amid claims it had deliberately misled its listeners, encouraging them to enter a competition under false pretences. Letchworth-based Garden FM, the self-proclaimed home of “Inane chat and hopeless drivel”, used a premium rate phone line to support a competition to supposedly win a brand-new Volvo XC90. But to the horror of the listeners, who were also expecting an all-expenses skiing trip in The Alps, the actual prize was something much less exciting. In fact, the real prize was quite terrifying. Rather than the all-new Volvo XC90…

    Ahead of its launch at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, PetrolBlog has obtained exclusive information on the all-new Vauxhall Viva. So far, Vauxhall has only released a single teaser image and a few lines of marketing guff, so this is proper, hot-off-the-press stuff. Only it came via fax. Speaking to a chap known only to us as ‘Phil’, who curiously was wearing a faded-blue Ford Rallye Sport bomber jacket, the all-new Vauxhall Viva will share much in common with the original car, first introduced in 1963. This must be true, because a Vauxhall press release said so: “Designed for…

  • Next-generation Jeep Wrangler will still be a body-on-frame model

    Production of the next-generation Jeep Wrangler would likely remain in Toledo, Ohio. This came as Automotive News learned from people privy with Chrysler Group’s plans that the new Wrangler will still be a body-on-frame vehicle, instead of becoming a unibody model. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles chief executive Sergio Marchionne has implied that the Wrangler might have a unibody frame. He indicated during the recent Paris auto show the next generation model might have an aluminum body – a move that would require Chrysler to shift production of the Wrangler to another site since its…

Tesla’s vice president for engineering Chris Porritt, the Model III will appeal to more people and with crossover or estate versions their target looks achievable. Tesla aims to offer a range of between 200 and 300 miles for the Model III. What’s more interesting is that Tesla looks committed to offer a new sports car to replace the Tesla Roadster, but for the moment the manufacturer wants to focus on volume…

  • WRC is Lame & a Bonus

    Brian Driggs
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    The last thing I’ve learned about rally over the last decade is this. WRC is lame compared to regional, clubman level rally. Seriously. I couldn’t name three current WRC drivers right now. I’m not even sure which manufacturers are still involved. Volkswagen? Ford, maybe? Once you’ve experienced regional, clubman level rally – once you’ve been involved – WRC just seems less important.  Driver’s meeting at WRC Mexico. Would you like to know more?

  • Rally Will NOT Make You Rich

    Brian Driggs
    23 Oct 2014 | 8:07 am
    You will never get rich rallying. Here’s the deal. Even if you grew up karting in Europe and somehow managed to score a ride with a manufacturer, the number of WRC seats available seems to get smaller every year. The vast majority of rallyists do it for fun. Cash prizes are the exception – not the rule – and they’re seldom enough to cover entry to the event where they were earned, let alone recoup all the costs in getting there.  Flying from two different countries to a third to rally. Maybe shipping a car, too. You don’t make that kind of money rallying. We have a…
  • Rally is More Than Driving Fast

    Brian Driggs
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:12 am
    I know, I know. Rally is about driving fast. 10 years fairly immersed in the sport has shown me it’s about so much more, though. It’s about control. Vehicle control. Self control. We rally fans sometimes point out that, while a Formula 1 driver might see a corner 50 or 60 times in a race, a rally driver is likely to see 50 or 60 corners just once. What’s more, the rally driver has only the verbal instructions of his co-driver as a basis for proper setup into each corner.  There is such an incredible amount of trust involved in rally. Think about it for a minute. The driver has to trust…

    Knowing how to work on our own vehicles saves us considerable amounts of money. This is huge, because knowing how to work on our own vehicles usually means we’re spending the money we save (and then some) on improving them. And, as anyone who’s ever built a legitimate race car will tell you, playing by the rules gets expensive quickly. We’re all familiar with how quickly performance modifications add up to big money. What’s the saying? Speed costs money. How fast do you want to go? I know, right? For a minute, forget about any and all performance modifications to your would-be rally…

    Car sharing or lift sharing can be a convenient way for two or more people to make a journey, be it to work, on a day trip out or for other reasons. The major benefits of car sharing is that it saves everyone involved time and money. This is important, especially with the rising costs of fuel and the numbers of vehicles on our roads increasing congestion and journey times. But is car sharing a good route to take, and is car sharing really good for the environment? Car sharing is best suited to those who reside in the big cities where there is the benefit of great transport links, and people…

    Nissan Qashqai? 2007 saw the launch of the Nissan Qashqai (or Nissan Dualis if you’re in Australia or Japan) crossover, and it’s gone from strength to strength since then. In fact, it’s Nissan’s most successful model ever built, with well over 2 million of them sold worldwide since it landed. We were interested to see what the attraction is and why it sells so well. To fathom this, we were sent the 2014 Nissan Qashqai Acenta Premium 1.2 DIG-T to review. Exterior. Butt ugly or beauty? The first generation Qashqai – built from 2007 to 2013 – looked rather…

    Insanely fast, handles beautifully, full of character, race car looks Older touchscreen system, XK ending soon Jaguar XK? 1996 saw the Jaguar XK8 land firmly on the GT car scene, along with the supercharged XKR version a couple of years later. The styling lasted well, and it’s rather a modern classic now. In 2007 an all-new XK was unveiled, and this time they were even faster and more powerful than before, and a change of ownership also meant no more raiding the parts bin hence meaning a more refined and classier cabin too. From there on it went from a great car to a superb one.

It’s the end of an era for the Freelander, as by 2015 it will be replaced by the Discovery Sport.

When 2007 arrived, you could chuck away your 5-seat Picasso and instead own the gigantic hold-all of the car world: the Grand C4 Picasso. Kids now 3+1? More mates treating you as their taxi driver? No problem. Yes, the Grand C4 Picasso landed as a 7-seater, and suddenly people – parents especially – discovered that Mary Poppins’ bag had morphed and existed in the real world, and was made by Citroen.

As a hybrid model, you may expect the car to be a bit quiet. However that is not the case. The car has a fairly noisy powertrain. The ride can’t be that smooth.

    This particular Ford model is the alternative to the 1.5 Ecosport 1.5 litre diesel. Some experts were not particularly fond of the diesel version, so is the petrol version any better? The car was inspired by the idea of the ‘Ford One’, a strategy to make all models adaptable for all worldwide car markets. Initially, the car was sold in Brazil, starting from 2003. It was very suited to the country, given the conditions of roads. The added height to the ride made driving in the country a lot easier.

    Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Automotive High School car show in Williamsburg Brooklyn. It was the first time I attended the show and am I glad I went. Besides the Cadillacs there were a lot of other classic cars that were real beauties. There were about 10 classic Cadillacs in all at the show. Below is a little video I took of a 1954 Cadillac which you have seen on our site before. A 1983 Cadillac Seville which really shined very nicely in the sun. The 3rd Cadillac in the video is a 1966 convertible.

So, what’s happening to the disc? Car tax discs are no longer to be issued, and it is no longer a legal obligation to display one in your front window.  This will be the case with both vehicles that have been exempt from the charge and those that have not (previously, even…
  • Diesel or petrol: making the choice

    Editor
    1 Oct 2014 | 5:53 am
    One of the first decisions that you have to make when picking up your first car is whether you want to go with a petrol vehicle or a diesel one.  Today, we’re going to take a look at the differences between the two, and which one is likely to suit you best. The price difference In the UK, diesel can be more expensive than petrol, with fuel pricing favouring the latter.  As well as this, the advances in petrol engine technology has led to increased levels of efficiency, bringing it closer to diesel.  As a result, the diesel premium – typically between £1000 and…

    At ASM, we work to provide modern motorists to help them manage their driving finances.  Car salvage auctions are one of the main services that we offer, and we’re going to use today to take a look at how any driver can benefit from them. So, what is a salvaged car? Put simply, a salvaged car is one that an insurance company no longer considers fit for use on the road, in its current state.  If the total damage exceeds a certain percentage of the value of the car (ranging from 75-90 percent), it will be declared a ‘total loss’ by the insurance company and sold to…

You got better miles per gallon. It was cheaper to run. Heck, it was better than sliced bread. (One thing no one mentioned though was diesels tend to be more expensive to service and repair than the same petrol model). But boy have things changed.

    23 Oct 2014 | 7:20 am
    With new cars relying more and more on computers and the internet, they’re also beginning to adopt the vulnerabilities associated with these technologies.

Although they didn’t’ actually hack through a car’s system, their research was conducted using downloaded schematics and analyzing the computer networks, which they then use to rate 20 different cars according to level of vulnerability.

    When the new BMW i3 models were delivered to Chapman BMW on Camelback, the plug-in electric vehicles were missing one thing: AM radio channels.

And to its credit, BMW has explained the loss of AM radio signals in the i3 and i8 as an interference problem with the vehicle’s electric motor. According to Kenn Sparks, BMW Manager of Business Communications, in a letter to the National Association of…

    All brands of gasoline are not the same. The gas at one station is different from the gas at the station down the street. It is similar to how different brands of apple juice don’t taste the same and have varying amounts of vitamins depending on the types of apples used in the juice. Brands of gas have different additives that increase performance, clean while they burn, and reduce emissions. In 1995, the EPA put a minimum limit on additives for gas sold in the United States. Since then, each brand of gas must contain a certain amount of additives that reduce emissions and reduce the…

    There is a very solid argument to make that the Chevrolet Corvette is the most influential sports car ever to come out of a major American manufacturer. Sure, Chrysler had its Viper; Ford had its GT; and even AMC had its AMX. However, none of them has had the longevity or the prolonged cultural significance of the Corvette. When the Stingray was introduced, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles called Valet Mode “a baby monitor for your car” and said in a statement: “Anyone who has felt apprehension about handing over their keys will appreciate the peace of mind of knowing…

    Chrysler’s redesigned 2015 200 is hoping for a piece of the Accord’s action, and considering that last year’s version of the car essentially rolled off assembly lines and into rental car company parking lots, it will be deemed successful even if it merely nudges the sales needle. This new 200 is a far better car than the old 200. But does it have what it takes to woo Accord buyers? Chrysler 200 sales have been on a roll since inventories reached sufficient levels beginning in August, when deliveries soared 10.5% vs. like-2013 to 10,810 units. In September, sales jumped 9.9% to 10,995.

    The great cities of Europe offer someone for everyone. Galleries for art aficionados, opera houses for the musically minded… but what about petrolheads? The continent’s rich vehicular heritage is in fact well preserved and presented at a number of locations. Just make sure you have your travel money card handy – you’ll feel like a kid again in the associated souvenir shops! One of the most high profile automobile museums is in Munich, where BMW Welt (Welt being German for “World”) sits alongside BMW Headquarters – a tower block completed in 1972 that still manages to look…

    After what has seemed like an age of widespread economic growth, the UK is faced with a sudden and unexpected period of decline. This is set to impact particularly hard on consumers, as while business sentiment remains relatively high individuals in the capital and the south of England are struggling to cope with the cost of inflation. This means that even those in gainful employment must look to cut their cloth and manage their finances effectively, paying particular attention to recurring, annual costs such as auto insurance. 3 Things to Look for Among Potential Car Insurers With this in…

    In my travels to dozens of dealerships, I always pause turning into the driveway to take a look at the facility – the rows of inventory, the flags, the landscaping, and signage. The reason for this is a term that’s been around for a long time – “standing tall”. We are in a time when shoppers may visit only 1.8 dealerships before taking delivery, yes, delivery of a new or used vehicle. That first impression is extremely important. Before physically visiting your store, your customers will visit your digital dealership one or more times. Today it is even more important that your…

    Our online shoppers are finicky when it comes to where and what they will view. Measurement of time spent is in seconds as they click from one site to another. In my opinion one element that needs to be considered is what they see from the instant your site rolls up on their viewing device – 3B Home Page graphics. Bold, brilliant, breakthrough! It’s the same lesson learned years ago when print was intent on making them look, radio on making them listen, and TV was both look and listen. The idea was to hook them in the first few seconds of exposure. Think the same way when you evaluate…

Today there are very little excuses, when all it takes is one click on their homepage to view their specials. With compliance becoming more of a factor, often you can see how customers get to whatever deal because the disclosure spells it out down to the dollar. This should be an on-going practice within every dealership, certainly within the first few days after incentives have been released and throughout the month to stay current with any special event promotions on their site.

    Today, Ducati is one of the first names a person might think of when asked to name a major motorcycle manufacturer. It wasn’t always that way, with Ducati starting out as an electronics and appliance firm. Oh how far they have come. In the mid 1940s, a Turin lawyer and a self taught engineer had an idea to build a clip on engine, that could be fitted to bicycles. By 1946, the prototype had been manufactured, the short muffler giving a yipping sound as it kicked over, the nickname given to the power unit was Cucciolo, Italian for ‘puppy’. The engine was a success, with demand…

    My name is Ian, and I am a vintage motorcycle fan. It is only recently that I have become involved in the vintage motorcycle world, after admiring the scene from afar for some time now. I use the term ‘involved’ because it is the most apt term to describe the relationship one has while involved in this culture. Whether it be upkeep and maintenance, the club community, or actually riding the machine itself, you definitely feel ‘involved’ whether you plan to or not. Albeit my project thus far is rebuilding a BSA C10 motor, I have learnt more in the last month of ownership than I learnt…

    There it was, just sitting there just outside the roller door. A wedge of wood, created when a pallet was broken down, caught my eye. It had been passed over by many people who had thought nothing of it, but none of them had a vintage motorcycle they were having trouble disassembling. The problem i was facing was that the metal used in the manufacture of my engine is very low quality, making it apt to crack if forced. The wooden wedge looked soft enough to aid me. I took the piece home, and in less than 10 minutes I had removed the cover, then found the wedge handy in holding the crank from…

The TrueCar report showed that the average transaction price in August was $1,850 lower than the average in December. Actually, the July rates fall just behind August. This is likely because the shift in model year used to come in early fall months like…

  • Dandelion a Possible Substitute for Tire Rubber?

A Dutch biologist believes she and her team may have found a sustainable alternative to rubber — dandelion. Dandelion-based rubber would give the tire industry a better handle on rubber supplies. According to an MSN article, brands like Bridgestone and Continental are putting millions into this research. Dandelion Tires?

However, this law hasn’t prevented a former CNN courts commentator from being arrested for drunk driving five times within a year, and never serving more than 10 days in jail. According to an article on Philly.com, Joseph Lawless was able to find a loophole in the law that allowed him to plead guilty as a first time offender for each case of DUI.

    24 Oct 2014 | 9:13 am
    Spark plugs are one of the most important yet undervalued auto parts, not because most owners don’t know about them but they rarely have to check them. Compared to your oil and air filter, most people rarely check their spark plugs. When signs of wear and tear become evident, most look to other car parts for blame. Here is a closer look at the simple spark plug, an important yet undervalued car part: The Importance of the Spark Plug Despite what most car owners may think, engines don’t just burn fuel by themselves. They require a mechanism to set the energy in fuel free. Without this…

However, the introduction of local solutions by an influential Australian company may just change this.

While powerful, they wear easily, leading to large brake bills nobody should have to bear. Complaints have also been reported about black marks on alloy wheels caused…

  • New Tactic in Car Safety: Vehicle Communication

    One of the biggest safety issues while driving is not having enough reaction time when hazards suddenly appear.

Well, the Department of Transportation is working on a solution to this problem. Communication between vehicles. Officials imagine that cars will be able to send warnings to one another when a driver slams on the brakes, runs the red light, or encounters any other unseen dangers. The warnings…

  • How to Drive 834 Miles on One Tank of Fuel in the 2015 Audi A3 TDI [REVIEW]

    24 Oct 2014 | 9:08 am
    I wake up from a nap to find myself sweating in a car with the A/C off in the middle of the California desert. No this isn't a nightmare, my driving partner and I are trying to reach it to San Diego, which is over 100 miles away, but our 2015 Audi A3 TDI's gas gauge says were almost on empty.

How much worse? Let’s say that your typical low emission vehicle with less than a 1-liter powerplant claims to provide up to 60.3 mpg on average. This might be true in a perfect world void of…

    Recently, I discovered a beautiful book of photographs – “The Silence of Dogs in Cars” – by photographer Martin Usborne.  Usborne poetically captures the quietude of dogs, locked away behind closed car doors as they wait, resigned, and sometimes, with frightened anger, for their owners’ return.  Even when the subjects of this book are barking ferociously at some unseen stranger, their bark is muffled and eerily silenced. Usborne was inspired by memories of waiting alone in the car when he was a kid, for his parent’s return as they ducked into stores for a quick shop.  Kids are…

    While Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney prepares for a month out of the game, it is likely that his agent has pencilled in a meeting about an up and coming investment opportunity. This could break the British Transfer Record! The DVLA yesterday announced the list of numbers available at its 25th Anniversary Auction at The Vale Resort, Hensol near Cardiff in late November.

    Hello number plate buyers and sellers. Just wanted to let you guys know that we’ve recently updated our eBay fees page to reflect eBay’s newest charging structure, and thought it was worth a mention on our blog for those of you that might have missed it. Essentially, eBay charge 10% of the sale price of any number plate, so in the example we’ve used, with a starting price of £1,000, and a reserve price of £1,500, you’ll pay an Insertation Fee of £0.35, and a Listing Upgrade Fee of £59.86 (for setting a reserve price). That’s £60.21 for listing the plate…

    The hammer went down for a final time and the auction is now officially over, and whilst the DVLA rightly congratulates itself on pulling in £4,022,047 after fees and tax at Twickenham this week, it is worth making a few serious points: – Firstly, the number of lots sold exceeded 1,400 on the day – usually there are more unsold that get picked up later by the dealers. – The excessive £30k hammer price for 26 O (after £26k, £22k and £20.5k for 22 O, 23 O and 24 O a few months ago) suggests that the buyer may have thought they were bidding for the iconic Ferrari-friendly 25…

    The Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept has completed its autonomous lap of Hockenheim unscathed over the weekend, and I for one welcome the new era of autonomous motorsports. It’s definitely a strange sight to see the 412kW saloon at race speeds without a driver behind the wheel, but perhaps even more strange is how standard the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept appears on the inside. That’s because aside from a few extra cameras, the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept utilises most of the standard RS 7′s existing systems like electromechanical power steering.

The fast-talking citizen in this clip is Gavin Seim and according to him (along with Washington State law 46.08.065) it is illegal for a police officer to operate an unmarked police vehicle unless they are using it for “special undercover or confidential investigative purposes”. Now this is where the entire premise of stopping the officer becomes a…

    A drive-thru car wash is a pretty creepy place to be even at the best of times, but throw in an axe-wielding maniac and you have a recipe for a seriously terrifying prank that no air freshener is going to hide. Ford told 30 strangers to stop at a car wash on their way to a filmed test drive, but Ford had other plans and prepared the car wash for a seriously evil Halloween prank. We want to assume the victims are all paid actors because we can’t imagine a huge company like Ford risking the bad press from giving someone a heart attack, but you can judge it for yourself.
