Will the Mitten Get the Blues? Michigan Looks Anew at Old License Plates

If you’re of a certain age, you likely remember the all-blue Michigan license plates with white lettering. I know I do, despite not being a Michigander. That’s in part because the Great Lakes State wasn’t too far from my suburban Chicago abode – day trips to New Buffalo remain a treasured memory – and in […] The post Will the Mitten Get the Blues?...

2020 Toyota Highlander Platinum V6 AWD Review – Victim of Timing

The 2020 Toyota Highlander is a pretty good improvement over the previous generation, building off an already strong foundation, but unfortunately for Toyota, it comes along just as Kia’s Telluride and Hyundai’s Palisade soar towards class dominance. Ask anyone who made big plans for after March 1, 2020, and they’ll tell you – timing is […] The post...

Rare Rides: An Ultra Brown 1984 Oldsmobile Firenza Cruiser

In the Eighties, did you seek a compact car with the highest possible number of lamps at the front? If so, the choice was clear in ’84: Oldsmobile Firenza.

Another EV Startup Goes Public – Mullen Meets Net Element

Electric-vehicle startups seem to be everywhere these days. And more than a few have used a “reverse merger” with an established company that’s already listed on Nasdaq as a way to go public.

Jeep Shows Off Special Editions, Takes Place in Octogenarian Club

Eighty years of anything is a lot, with life and marriage – and the occasional fruitcake – being heartily celebrated if they ever make it that far. There have been a few car brands to mark this milestone as well; Jeep is the latest to join the club. Rather than rent the local banquet hall […] The post Jeep Shows Off Special Editions, Takes Place in...

Check Out the Grille on THAT: 2021 BMW M3 and M4 Arrive on Scene

The 2021 BMW M3 and M4 are here, and hard to miss, thanks to a gaping maw of a grille. Divisive looks aside – and I have a feeling the discussion about these Bimmers will make political debates seem tame – the cars promise plenty of power. To wit, an increased 48 ponies over the […] The post Check Out the Grille on THAT: 2021 BMW M3 and M4 Arrive...

Rare Rides: The Most Excellent 1992 Oldsmobile Bravada

Today’s Rare Ride represents a landmark for the Oldsmobile brand and a somewhat unsuccessful luxury badge experiment for General Motors. Let’s check out the rarely seen first-generation Oldsmobile Bravada. Rare Rides featured a Bravada way back in 2017 when this series was a spring chicken. But that Indianapolis 500 pace car was far removed from […]...

The Six Vehicles That Wildly Outdid Reasonable Sales Expectations in America in August 2020

Gauging economic health during the latter stages of 2020 is proving remarkably challenging. On the one hand, there’s grievous unemployment caused by COVID-19 shutdowns; on the other hand, bicycle sales are booming and backyard pool installations skyrocketed. Contrast the fact that the Dow Jones isn’t far from its six-month high with a 32 percent U.S....
