    From 1912 to 1918, the Willys Overland Motor Company was the second-largest auto manufacturer in the United States, after Ford Motor Company. But the Great Depression wasn’t kind to the company, and after surviving a few bankruptcy scares and reorganizations, Willys-Overland Motors began designing a simple and affordable 4-cylinder automobile, available as a 4-door sedan […]The post Cars We Love: 1940 Willys Coupe appeared first on On the road again.

    This car was a big surprise and it has undergone the road from an anonymous car that was in the shadow of Toyota Camry and Hyundai Accord to one of the best valued car in the four door class sedan segment. Maybe the biggest credits for that go to redesign made in 2011 after which Optima became a great car that conquered the market. Now, Kia will try to benefit additionally from that good voice and reach even more buyers with new 2016 Kia Optima which was seen for the first time at New York Motor Show.

    Do you love your old car but hate the way it smells? Does the interior give off a mysterious odor that’s impossible to irradiate? Have you given up on air fresheners, shampoos, ionizers and all the quick fixes? It’s time to get your nose down in the carpet and face up to the facts. There’s a very good chance that your car rugs are harbouring those noxious perpetrators. This is a problem that can be solved and the materials are not that expensive.

  • Report: Mitsubishi North America posts their first profit in seven years

    admin
    24 Apr 2015 | 7:01 pm
    Mitsubishi’s been undoubtedly struggling to remain relevant. They’ve had some new models come out, such as the Outlander, but not much else has been happening and the killing of the Lancer Evolution is just a nail in the coffin. But interestingly, Mitsubishi recently posted their first profit in seven years in North America. Ok, they may be going somewhere. But is it enough? Either way, their lineup and overall strategy is in dire need of attention, and this includes following the formulas of their intended rivals that have no problem getting by. These include other Japanese…

    The advent of 3D-printing has set off a new wave and generation of manufacturing and engineering. That said, it’s bringing the power of fabrication to a more accessible level and the result of some of the talent out there is staggering. Such as this example, where an individual 3D-printed a miniature model of a transmission that’s fully functioning! It’s also even attached to a motor that was too made from 3D printing. Now there are hundreds of videos of cool, functioning models out there of engines and transmissions. This is just another to add to the collection. Check it…

It towered at over three stories with a ramp that was 35.5-feet high, complete with a 12.5-foot loop. The previous record was puny in comparison, at nine feet, nine inches tall.

    24 Apr 2015 | 5:48 pm
    CBS’s local affiliate in Boston reports of an interesting legal battle brewing in The Bay State. According to the report, Nicholas Belezos, 20, was pulled over for speeding for going 40 mph in a 30 mph zone. Given the situation, Belezos paid his fine of only $100. However, the usual onslaught from insurance made his penalty a lot worse than it should be, driving up his insurance premium and later costing his job as a delivery driver. Sounds alright, but the kicker here is that Belezos is alledging that the zone in which he was pulled over has illegally-posted speed limit signs, allowing…

    24 Apr 2015 | 5:08 pm
    The current Mitsubishi Lancer has been with us since 2007. Yes, it is eight years old, meaning it’s just about due for a replacement entirely. And if you thought a new Lancer, completely new, from the ground up, was around the corner, you’d be wrong. According to Motoring, Mitsubishi plans to not replace the Lancer, but just apply a facelift before the end of the year, after speaking with Mitsubishi of Australia’s marketing chief, Tony Principe. As usual however, Principe refused to go into detail for any future model. Not much is known ’bout the update–screw…

    While Chief Executive Martin Winterkorn wears bruises from the conflict, Ferdinand Piëch has paid the ultimate of price and resigned his chairmanship with immediate effect. According to Reuters, the ongoing row between CEO and Chairman at Volkswagen eased this past week, but when the group’s supervisory board put their support behind Winterkorn, the 78-year-old grandson of Ferry Porsche was left “isolated” in a five-to-one vote.

    With 29% and 30% of their U.S. sales coming from pickup trucks, respectively, General Motors and Ford Motor Company fall from the top two positions to the second and third when auto manufacturer sales are compared without pickups. Toyota, therefore, becomes the top dog with 507,000 non-pickup sales through the first-quarter of 2015, 21,000 more cars, vans, SUVs, and crossovers than General Motors. Excluding Frontiers, Titans, and Ridgelines doesn’t change the fact that Nissan and Infiniti are still outselling Honda and Acura. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles nearly pulls level with Ford MoCo when…

    Once upon a time, The Wall Street Journal faced off against General Motors over editorial independence, and won. According to ProPublica president Richard Tofel, who wrote an entire chapter about the story for his book, “Restless Genius: Barney Kilgore, The Wall Street Journal, and the Invention of Modern Journalism,” the conflict between the two giants began over 60 years ago this May. The story goes that GM CEO Harlow “Red” Curtice happened upon a report in the WSJ about the tactic of selling excess inventory through smaller independent dealers at cut-rate prices –…

Those who choose to pair the roadster’s 2.0-liter Skyactiv I4 with a six-speed automatic will see EPA-rated numbers of 27 mpg city, 36 mpg highway, and 30 mpg combined, according to Edmunds. Those who pick the manual six-speed, meanwhile, will the same mpg figures in the city and combined, but lose 2 mpg on the highway.

    -The eccentric tenor of Austin, Texas, goes so far beyond the stereotypes that it could pass for paro­dy. In the city’s South Congress neighborhood, for example, you get your kale juice, fried chicken, and breakfast tacos not from a food truck, but from food Airstreams and food shipping containers. The local thrift shop shares a wall with American Apparel, and everybody pretends not to notice that the hipster counterculture is funded by Range Rover drivers quaffing $20 cocktails. READ MORE ››-

The show dates back more than a century and was previously held at the New York Coliseum, the old Madison Square Garden, and the Grand Central Palace. While diesel cars were in evidence from many manufacturers, including Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen, the focus was on large luxury and performance vehicles.

    In a year marked mostly by significant decreases in fuel prices, motorists have been paying more at the pump in the past few weeks, although prices still remain significantly lower than they were a year ago. Diesel prices are lower this week, with the average price for a gallon of diesel fuel at $2.864, $0.053 less than a week ago, and $1.124 lower than a year ago, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Meanwhile, the average price for a gallon of gasoline increased from a low of $2.03 on Jan. 25 to $2.457 this week. That number is $0.004 more than the price last week,…

For many manufacturers and distributors, a seamless supply chain of highly efficient and tightly integrated business processes sharing a single unified source of accurate real-time data seems an unachievable goal. That’s not surprising since such organizations are struggling to gain control over their entire supply chain using a mix of disparate systems that fail to fully mesh with one another creating silos of outdated and unreliable information. Instead of enabling manufacturers and distributors, a mixture of poorly connected…

Although high-impact natural disasters often make headlines, organizations should also be concerned with the potential for disruptions to systems that support day-to-day operations.

    Online startups offer dealers faster, cheaper ways to wholesale vehicles, from Automotive News. Bob Gault, president of three dealerships in Endicott, N.Y., tried the usual ways to liquidate unwanted trade-ins. Wholesalers tended to show up at the wrong time and stayed too long. The auctions worked great. But their per-vehicle fees ranged from a few to several hundred dollars, depending on the price of the vehicle. Multiplied times the 100 to 125 units per month he typically sells, the fees could sometimes account for a loss, said Gault, whose dealerships sell BMW, Chevrolet and Toyota…

    I’ve been waiting to test Ethanol Free Gasoline (E0) for eons, but I could never find a local service station that carries it. Blame it on the lawmakers. As it turns out, New Jersey state law stipulates that all of the gas sold here must contain ten percent ethanol. Thankfully, ethanol-free gas is sold on the other side of the Delaware River, fifty odd miles from home. I took Slambo for a ride today, to fill up with E0 for the first time. I intend to test it over a number of tanks. Proponents of ethanol-free gas claim a significant jump in fuel economy. Just how much is the big…

    Every gear head knows that synthetic motor oils deliver a higher level of protection than conventional oils, but the high-tech slippery stuff has a downside when it comes to older engines. Quite simply, it’s just too slippery. A well-worn engine will burn more full synthetic oil due to leaks. That’s why the oil manufacturers initially used conventional oil or synthetic blends in high mileage products, including Quaker State Defy and Valvoline MaxLife Synthetic Blend. There’s a trend underway to replace the blends with specially formulated full synthetic oils, like Mobil 1 High Mileage…

Some Drive-Ins charged by the car load, others by the individuals per car. So a trunk packed with 4-5 people sneaking into one was not uncommon. (Been there, bought the T-shirt, as they say ;) .)

    I guess it should not be a surprise that I picked this microbial minicar, since about anything you do to a GM T-Body will improve it anyway. But I have always defended this car, which was the best-selling American small car of 1979 and 1980. After all, I did own two of these beauties. First off, I'd keep virtually all of the external sheet metal, but build an up-to-date, high-tensile steel space frame under there that meets today's crash standards. After all, is the Chevette really such a bad looking car? But you know, why not use the original hood/grill assembly and headlights?

    The 2000 Le Mans race was not a high water mark for Porsche. The factory sent no prototypes, so there was only a clamor of GT2 and GT3 911s to carry the banner. Audi, without much competition at the top, finished 1-2-3, and there were no Porsches at all in the top 10. Not the best year to pick to make the pilgrimage across the pond to see the 24 hour struggle. So why show an image from that particular year?

And of course you’d want to paint the truck to match the car riding on its back, so it matters more that the interior looks to be in decent shape than that the paint and body can use a refresh.

The ’15 Altima being a case in point. At first glance, it’s what they call in the car biz a carryover — the same basic car as it was last year. With one big (and expensive) exception. If you want a big engine — the available 3.5 liter V6, in this case — you’ll discover it’s no longer available…

DHS canceled last year’s plan in the wake of TSA domestic spying revelations and subsequent outrage over increasingly intrusive government surveillance.

    NMA
    20 Apr 2015 | 7:58 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist A new car without a radio? It sounds as unthinkable as a new car without floor mats or a heater. But there is a real danger that your next new car might come without an AM/FM receiver. Or, might cost you extra. Seriously. As unthinkable as it sounds — and as undesirable as it would be (based on known consumer preferences; more on that in a minute) there is chatter in Detroit that the car industry is giving thought to retiring the AM/FM receiver in favor of music piped into the car via subscription-based satellite radio, iPods, smartphones and various…

It is unusual, however, for Chevrolet to release a production Corvette commemorating the achievements of a competition Corvette.

    The Flying Scotsman Rally 2015 was staged 17-19 April, starting in England and finishing in Scotland. The sun shined on this year’s event as the 110-strong field of pre-war cars battled it out over 750 miles from Leeds to Scotland’s Gleneagles in three days. It was William Medcalf, last year’s winner, with navigator Tony Brooks in the 1925 Bentley Super Sports that raised the winner’s cup at the finish line of what has been called the toughest short pre-war rally in the world.Read the rest of Flying Scotsman Rally 2015 – Report and Photos Read the rest of Flying Scotsman…

  • Ferrari 212 Export Barchetta – Car Profile

    Sports Car Digest
    23 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    Ferraris were campaigned frequently and with ferocity by both the factory and wealthy privateers, and the company’s reputation during its early days hinged on the success of its race cars. During these early years, Ferrari created a chassis numbering system that would create legends: the competition cars would be designated an even numbered chassis, whilst road going cars would receive odd chassis numbers. Whilst numerous road going “Inter” models would be built afterwards by Ferrari, this 212 Barchetta would be the final Touring-bodied, race-ready “Export” model built by the…

  • What We’d Buy with 100K+ Miles

    zwaller
    24 Apr 2015 | 1:18 pm
    Of course every shopper wants to purchase a reliable car. When pouring this much money into a single item, you probably expect that purchase to last a good long while, especially one as important as a car. That’s why reliability in a vehicle becomes such an important metric when considering where to throw your money. But how do you measure reliability? It certainly is a measurement that has to be taken with quite a few grains of salt. But, by the way we look at it, the issue of reliability can be addressed with one question: Would I feel comfortable buying this vehicle if it had over…
  • We Want a Malibu That Looks Like the FNR Concept

    tgriffith
    24 Apr 2015 | 1:00 am
    What you see above could be an early glimpse into what the 2065 Chevy Malibu might look like. True, it’s rare for an automaker to tease us with product that’s 50 years away, but I think Chevrolet has done just that. For now, this is just a design concept that Chevy has dubbed the FNR and unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show. I could try to describe its looks, but I think it’s best to let the pictures do the talking, because there’s just no good way to describe what is going on here visually. How is it powered? I’ll let Gizmag explain: The electric car is powered…
  • Time to Trade the Hybrid for an SUV?

    tgriffith
    23 Apr 2015 | 1:00 am
    Don’t jump back into an SUV just yet! If you drive an electric car or a hybrid, you might be tempted by low gas prices to make the leap back into an SUV or crossover. It happens every time there’s a fluctuation in fuel prices; they rise, and people flock to hybrids. They sink, and people migrate back to the big rigs. Americans are a fickle breed, and we have a hard time looking at the long-term picture. With gas prices currently well under $3 per gallon in most of the country, the great transition back to SUVs is already in place. According to CNN, so far this year only 45…
  • Should Modifying Your Car Be Illegal?

    tgriffith
    22 Apr 2015 | 1:00 am
    Driveway tinkerers and shop-bound weekend racers could be a dying breed. There are two main reasons for this: People who work on their own cars are stymied by the sheer amount of technology and custom tools needed to do the job. A new law could make it illegal to work on your own car. The first reason is a natural consequence of technology. Open the hood of a modern car, and instead of seeing headers and valve covers, we’re greeted with a plastic cover emblematized with the vehicle’s logo and engine size. Aside from having easy access to refill the windshield-wiper fluid, modern…
  • 2016 Volvo XC90 Twin Engine: Double the Induction

    tgriffith
    21 Apr 2015 | 1:00 am
    So the term “twin engine” has officially become a thing, and now the world is just a little more bonkers. Cars have been using two engines, or perhaps motors would be a better word, since the advent of the hybrid vehicle. One motor runs on gas, and the other runs on electricity, both working together to provide fuel efficiency and power. Volvo will sell its new XC90 with a similar setup, except it’ll market its flagship SUV as the XC90 T8 Twin Engine. It sounds impressive, and it is. The two engines, though, are just the beginning. The outgoing 2014 XC90 was powered by a…

    2 Apr 2015 | 11:04 am
    Image Source Over the last year, self-driving cars have moved from a distant dream to a beckoning reality. Though self-driving tech will be phased in incrementally, this year promises the first wave of automation, with a quarter of global auto sales expected to incorporate self-driving tech by the 2020’s. On the legislative side, four states and the District of Columbia allow self-driving car testing, and the undeclared legal status of self-driving cars in the remaining 46 states seems to hint at the fact that “it’s legal until it’s illegal.” Check out 10…
  • EcoBoost V6 Perfect for Ford GT

    Dustin Driver
    7 Mar 2015 | 12:00 am
    The EcoBoost V6 is perfect for the 2017 Ford GT. It doesn’t need a V8. The Ferrari-humiliating GT40 had a V8. First a 255 c.i., then a 298 c.i., then a colossal iron behemoth 427 c.i. V8 with more torque than the planet Saturn. You know why? Because those were the best engines Ford had back then. They were powerful, reliable, and made a wonderful noise. But today, Ford’s best engine is arguably the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. It’s a technical tour de force. It makes 380 hp and 460 lbft in the Lincoln Navigator, for chrissake. It’s an engineering marvel. The thing has direct…

    Image Source As providers of big ticket items, the health of the auto industry is largely a predictor of the health of the economy as a whole. In the US, 2014 was the second year in a row in which it finally looked like we were out of the recession. Confidence seemed to be high, with U.S. auto inventory stockpiles at their highest levels since 2006, and the industry seems to have successfully adapted past the unfortunate bailouts of a decade before. Cars made today are the most durable they’ve been in over a decade, with an average age of light vehicles improving to 11.4 years in the…

    Behold! They cometh with four and six cylinders, turbochargers and direct injection! Wielding monstrous power-to-weight ratios and fiendish specific output numbers! Inefficient, high-displacement engines flee in their wake, screaming in terror before the advancing army of forced-induction warriors! The big V8 is dying in a swirl of super-compressed and intercooled air. And Ford, one of the Grandaddies of the big V8, is heralding it’s demise. Sure, they have the Coyote, but they’ve sent a very clear message with the GT, the turbo Mustang, and now the Focus RS. Turbos are in.

    Sure, it’s not really that bad as midlife crises go. I mean, yes, when I hit midlife I did switch jobs three times and got divorced, but that’s more the result of a constant and chronic whole-life crisis, not one of the midlife variety. No, my midlife crisis was automotive. My vehicular partners have all been Japanese and reliable and, literally, colorless (silver, beige, white, black, gray). I had owned my 2003 Mazda Protégé 5 for 10 long years. It was a fun, zippy, practical, economical car that could really do anything. But at 37 something snapped and I decided I needed more…

    Collin Van Der Zee
    7 Apr 2015 | 10:31 am
    Koenigsegg has always made crazy cars full of crazy technology, like engines with no camshafts, but this might be the most insane car on the planet. Period. The Regera had a hybrid electric power train that produces a total of around 1800hp. 1100hp which comes from Koenigsegg’s 5.0 twin turbo V8, is complimented by a further 700hp from 3 electric motors, one mated to the transmission, and one to each rear wheel. All this means that this car is rear wheel drive. Let me run that by you again, upwards of 1800hp through the rear wheels and the rear wheels only. I’ll let that soak in.

  • These Are The Men That Keep The DeLorean DMC 12 Alive: Video

    The DeLorean DMC 12 is a different kind of classic car than most. A big part of the reason why is the company that you’ll see in this video from XCar. The original company went under so quickly that its assets were sold off all at once, rather than piecemeal over the years during a slow decline, in the fashion of companies like TVR. So when the current owner got his hands on the remnants of the original factory, he got millions of original but never used spare parts. Since he had already built a business that concentrated exclusively on DeLoreans, this new inventory was the sort of…

    A holiday fling. I’ve had one, you’ve had one. I’m not necessarily talking about a Sandy and Danny type musical liaison, but whether it’s the sun or the sand, some things always seem better after a few days off. Last year I travelled to France for a wedding, and spent a couple of weeks with the Peugeot 308 Touring wagon. Clocking up over 5000km across five countries, the little Pug and I became quite close. As with all holiday relationships, as fun and exciting as they may be under a different sun, how would it work at home? You know how it goes, while you are away everything feels…

  • 2015 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS Review

    Anthony Crawford
    25 Apr 2015 | 4:47 pm
    There’s no doubt Porsche has nailed an iconic design with the 2015 incarnation of the Porsche 911 Targa, in much the same way it did with the 1965 original. With the latest 991-generation 911 Targa, Porsche has unceremoniously ditched the sliding glass roof panel (was more sunroof than a proper open-air roof) and restored the model’s classic hoop-shaped silver rollover bar after a 21-year absence. It’s the master-class of 911 design, no ifs or buts. But unlike the original Targa and those that followed (up until the unloved 993 series model) that required manually removed roof panels,…

    Lexus’ new signature 'spindle grille' design has been criticized by industry insiders and design experts alike but Toyota Motor Corp.'s and Lexus’ global design chief Tokuo Fukuichi is insistent that design-shock therapy will give it an edge over rivals. He said that the jagged-edged, head-turning trapezoid grille makes the brand stand out and gives it a “unique” edge over its German competitors Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz, specifically in emerging markets like China where customers are more willing to pay more for a car that’s an attention-grabber.

A long country drive to the mid south coast of NSW proved an ideal test. Powersource. There’s a range of engines available for the small midsizer SUV, including 1.5L EcoBoost engines. The diesel fitted to the Titanium is a 2.0L unit, with a redline starting at 4500 revs, max torque of 400 Nm from 2000 rpm through to 2500 and maximum kilowattage of 132 at 3500 revs. The transmission is a simple to use auto, with six forward ratios and a lever seen in other…

    “The Beast” is the nickname of the customized limo of the President of the US of A – a sort of land-based equivalent of Air Force 1.  While the name might make certain groups of conspiracy theorists-cum-Biblical fundamentalists have all sorts of conniptions, The Beast is certainly quite an impressive vehicle.  It’s almost worth becoming President for – or at least becoming the Presidential chauffeur.  That’s if you pass the driving test as well as the safety check – the driver has to be able to do advanced level police-style manoeuvres for evasion if needed. Although the…

Positioned near the top of BMW’s line, the 6-Series and 650i underwent a minor facelift that’s probably not noticeable unless you’re a rabid BMW fan. A restyled front air intake, adding one blade to the kidney grille and new adaptive LED headlights are the major changes, showing that BMW engineers work on the old axiom that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Go see what all the fuss is about by inspecting…

The classic kidney grill, part of the design since 1933, was originally implemented to reduce drag. The long, sloping hood helps distribute weight evenly to all four wheels. Four circular headlights are a relatively new design feature originally conceived to separate higher-end 3-series models from their lesser counterparts.

    The man who burned my hometown of Atlanta, General William Tecumseh Sherman, is famous for saying, “war is hell.” Some quibble with the exact wording he used, but no one doubts the essential truth of his remark. Ask anyone who has served in the military during a time of conflict; they will verify the accuracy of Sherman’s comment without hesitation. Speaking of hell, traditional accounts of that infernal place say that it’s a vast, fiery wasteland. That depiction comes close to describing what was unleashed on the city of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. The events of that day serve as a…

But get together with any group of auto fans and a few common nameplates get thrown around. Amidst mentions of Mustangs and Camaros, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is unlikely to make that classic car cut – it isn’t exactly old enough. But fast forward 25 to 30 years, and you’d be hard pressed not to include an Evo on the list. Why? Its ability to harass supercars, outright speed, rarity, and impact. Its hardcore knockout…

The relay allows current to pass through to the fuel pump, which becomes active and pumps the gasoline that is necessary for the starter to engage and the vehicle to begin running. The fuel pump continues to work during…

  • Top 8 Cars To Buy Used Over New

    Jim Taylor
    27 Feb 2015 | 8:12 am
    The excitement of a brand new car has long tempted Americans to skip used models and find one that just rolled off the assembly line. While this might be exciting, it’s often not the best way to get an excellent price on a car, and it leaves a lot to be desired when comparing the long-term value of a vehicle. A gently used vehicle often gives buyers the same “new car” feeling, with a lower price tag, a quicker repayment period, and identical benefits to a car that hasn’t been previously owned. That’s especially true for eight specific makes and models that are…

    Getting your car serviced regularly is an important part of owning a vehicle. Servicing ensures that the car is running safely and at optimum performance.

For the best results, it is recommended that you stick to this schedule, but you do have a choice about who does your service: the manufacturer (or their registered dealerships) or an independent mechanic.

    There’s no hidden fact that Bajaj Auto has been consecutively witnessing slump in sales in the recent months. The manufacturer badly needed a boost in sales, or to be specific, a volume churning product in its respective segment, which will help the company in climbing the ladder of sales to regain its lost grounds. No surprises that Bajaj Auto confirmed six all new products in the first six months of 2015. The third installment of this launch spree, Pulsar RS200, seems to be that one morale booster which Bajaj had required in the premium segment of motorcycles. Within a week of the…

    The alternator is used to convert rotational energy from the car’s engine into electrical power. This recharges the battery, ensuring that there is always enough current to run your vehicle’s electric circuits. Due to the large amounts of stress and friction on this part, it can go wrong or fail every 60,000 – 100,000 miles, requiring you to either visit a repair garage or replace the part yourself.

    A Fuel Pump Relay works similarly to an automotive fuse. It serves as a conduit, transferring power to the electric fuel pump. It also controls the amount of power that is being sent through to the fuel pump. The fuel pump relay is controlled by the engine control module. When you put the key into the ignition and turn it to the on position, the fuel pump relay is activated. The relay allows current to pass through to the fuel pump, which becomes active and pumps the gasoline that is necessary for the starter to engage and the vehicle to begin running. The fuel pump continues to work during…

  • How to Strip Automotive Paint- The Tools and Procedures

    23 Apr 2015 | 10:58 am
    One of the big, time consuming jobs on any project vehicle (unless you are building one from scratch with raw sheet metal,) is stripping off years of old paint, primer, and anything else on the body panels. There are as many different ways to strip paint as there are types of paint to apply. Many times, especially with older projects, there may be multiple layers of primer, urethane, lacquer and enamels between the bare metal and the outside world. Matt took an extra hood from a Chevrolet Monte Carlo that was a perfect example of this and used it to show the various mechanical, chemical and…

  • Selecting The Right Wheels and Tyres Package

Whether you want to soften your car’s setup or you want a more comfortable ride, you can use the following tips to help in your wheel and tyre selection.

  • How to Replace a Volkswagen Battery

    Jason Lancaster
    22 Apr 2015 | 10:17 pm
    At some point or another, you are going to need to replace the battery in your Volkswagen as they do wear out over time. You might notice that your vehicle’s lights are dimmer, or your vehicle won’t stay charged. These can be signs of a battery that is on the way out. Battery replacement is a very simple procedure; but, if your vehicle is equipped with any type of alarm or anti-theft equipment, be sure to use the computer memory saver to save your settings before replacing the battery. Otherwise, you need to start over and reprogram the alarm systems or they won’t work.

    Lately it’s been proven that chivalry is indeed still alive, and Volkswagen Buses are still saturated with their beloved charm decades after their time. Apparently you don’t need today’s technological methods to get women to swoon with joy, you just need a Volkswagen Bus. The logic worked for Jake, a guy who fell victim to a “fellow van lover” and her outgoing note she left for him on his feisty orange 1973 T2 Volkswagen Bus. The note initially stated that the mystery girl was infatuated with Jake’s “sexy ride,” and if the owner was indeed a male, he should marry her. Jake,…

The photographer called the entire truck collection “Corn-binders”; a term only associated with International Harvester trucks-except his photo contained considerably more General Motors trucks than IH trucks. The newsfeed is directed more towards photography than vintage trucks, but it was a bit jarring for me because of its blanket assessment of the old iron in the photo.

    While modern-day muscle cars can easily surpass the 600-horsepower mark — the Challenger Hellcat and the Shelby GT come to mind — back in the day, anything that had more than 400 horses on tap was labeled as extraordinary. In the early 1970s, the "league of extraordinary muscle cars" included only a handful of vehicles, the most powerful of which were the Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 (450 horsepower) and the Plymouth Hemi Cuda (425 horses). Granted, the SS 454 had the highest factory rating at that time, but the Hemi racing engine made the Cuda that much more appealing. Both cars have become…

    When I first saw the second-generation Audi Q7 at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, I honestly thought the Germans pulled some sort of prank on its buyers by replacing the SUV with a jacked-up wagon. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying the new Q7 isn’t the significant improvement everyone expected it to be; I simply think it lost the imposing stature its predecessor had. However, I knew the Q7’s new appearance might work well with a high-performance model, which Audi promised it would bring into showrooms as its range-topping SUV. And that moment is seemingly getting closer, as our spy…

    Joseph Cargil
    23 Apr 2015 | 1:00 am
    Mileage Tracking Apps As a trucker, logging your mileage is of utmost importance because mileage is often what much of your pay is based on. If you don’t log miles, you don’t get paid. Logging miles used to mean coming home from your long trip and spending time in your logbook tracking those miles. If you were diligent, as you were supposed to be, you did it as your trip progressed. This could be quite a task and rather frustrating as every trucker wants to reach their destination by the time they promised the customer. With the increase in smartphone usage and apps, there…

    New BF Goodrich App When a tire blowout ruins your day on the road, wouldn’t it be nice if you could just press a button and fix everything? That’s the idea behind the truck tire locator app from BFGoodrich. The app does plenty more than just find commercial truck tires, too. You can search for towing, tire inspections, oil & lube, and other kinds of service centers nearby. Next time your tire blows out or you need emergency repairs, you can pull up the BFGoodrich app. Find the service you need, make the phone call — and then pull up a list of the nearest motels if you want.

The Agera R, which has a machine that delivers 1,140hp, was probably faster than this, but both supercars had attained speeds that were quite risky for the race – the road was wet and traffic was clearly…

    We all know that in today’s world, one of the bitterest competitions being led is between law enforcement that tries to catch speedy drivers off guard and fine them or take away their driver’s license and the drivers that use radar detectors, laser jammers and other ways of avoiding the law enforcement. The more adapted and advanced the speed guns and the laser guns the police use are, the more adapted the radar detectors will become in time and therefore the competition is very tight. The market for radar detectors is huge, with hundreds of models produced by well known and trustworthy…
  • Review on the Escort Passport 9500ix Radar Detector

    29 Sep 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Escort is a popular brand on the market of radar detectors and the Passport series definitely contains some of the best radar detectors money can buy. The Passport 9500ix is no exception. It is one of the top radar / laser detectors on the market at the current moment, having lots of features that enable it to detect all the speed and laser guns used by the police to catch the drivers off guard quite early, thus giving the driver time to slow down and avoid spending money on speed tickets.The Passport 9500ix is worth well over $450, but once acquired, it is definitely going to help recover…

    The 2015 racing season in Ontario kicked off last weekend with the first round of the Chumpcar Canada season at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, which saw a great grid of 40 cars on the track on Saturday. A half a dozen of those didn’t make it to the starting line on Sunday morning. Why didn’t six cars make it onto the racing surface? Well, Chumpcar is the leader in what some car crapcan racing. Each car must have a market value of no more than $500, meaning that you or I could actually find one for sale at that price. That doesn’t mean that the actual car in question was…

No other program, or group of programs, can boast such a diverse range of the most incredible vintage machinery, actually being driven in competition.

    24 Apr 2015 | 7:11 am
      It is a question that consumers have been asking since the very first corner garage opened up down the street from a new car dealership. Do I really need to service my car at the dealership? The short answer is no, you don’t, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is as simple as a yes or no answer. There are as many reasons for servicing at the dealer as there are for visiting “my mechanic”. Years ago in Toronto, a number of dealers of one German automaker began telling consumers that they had to service their car at the dealer, or the new vehicle warranty…

    As just about every lapping, drifting and racing participant in Ontario is eagerly anticipating their first event of the season (mine is next week!), I thought it might be a great time to share this video from Clipping Point Media, which is a compilation of drift attempts gone awry from the 2014 season. For most of us, getting out on track is as much about learning as it is about fun. As we learn, we push the envelope of performance, both the car’s and more often our own skill level. When we go beyond either, bad things can happen, especially in drifting, where the entire idea is to go…

    Shawn McAskill
    24 Apr 2015 | 9:44 am
    It’s a debate that has raged among enthusiasts for decades – what is the absolute, hands-down most fun car to drive? Answers vary of course; for some it doesn’t get any better than a low, slow, rumbly boulevard bruiser. Others prefer a single-purpose, jacked-and-gun-racked pickup or Jeep. Still others contend the razor-sharp reflexes of a Cayman or S2000 provide the ultimate in driving bliss. Unfortunately, I’m here to tell you that each and every one of you is flat-out wrong. The truth is, the most fun car you will ever drive…is the one that isn’t yours…

Is it too much of a stretch to say we die a little inside every time we imagine a silent future of Teslas cruising up and down the highways?

    The GT-R Nismo is Nissan’s most extreme iteration of the GT-R supercar. The Japanese brute known as Godzilla comes packed with a 600-horsepower high-capacity turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 right off the showroom floor, enough power to slay most of its sports car rivals. So how will it fare against a highly modified C6 Z06? A more appropriate matchup to us would be the Nismo squaring off against a new 2015 Z06 and it’s supercharged LT4 powerplant, but this highly modified 10-second C6 Corvette Z06 seems to hold it’s own just fine. Let us know below who you think the winner is…

The C6 Z06 rolled off the assembly line with a 7-liter motor (known as the LS7) that produced 505 hp, and for most came with more than enough power to leave you smiling like a little kid behind the wheel. The video above features a C6 Corvette Z06 that has over two times the power of a stocker, sounds epic, and looks like a gloriously fun handful to keep on the ground!
