23 hours agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

With Thanksgiving weekend behind us and the holiday season in full swing, most of us can be thankful for those in our lives who have touched us over the years. In my case, one such person is my brother. In particular, we have shared both the joys of the car culture, and the hardships of […]

Letter From The UK: There Is No Future & England’s Dreaming

3 days agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Title Quote: 1977, God Save The Queen / Sex Pistols. Prospects are as bleak now for young people as they were 40 years ago when punk ruled. Nothing changes for ordinary folk.  In June of this year, you may have gathered from the news and my meanderings that Britain is to leave the European Union. […]

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring Review

4 days agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Chrysler has brought back the Pacifica badge, but this new vehicle looks a lot different than the first model with the name. Previously, Pacifica was the name assigned to their mid-size crossover that was a bit quirky. It wasn’t a wagon, it couldn’t be called an SUV, and it wasn’t really a crossover. It had […]

This weekend in our Book Garage series, we go back to the 1960s, where one of the most memoriable parts of American history was emerging.

Power Wheels Mustang: The Pint-Sized Pony Car

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

When I was growing up, it was Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars. I could never get enough of them and always loved getting them for my birthday or Christmas. I would spend hours racing them around the living room floor, the couch, and even my bed. In similar fashion, Ford and Fisher-Price have created the […]

2017 Buick Cascada Seeing Red

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Sometimes the car world gets weird, even for a gearhead like me. Take this missive I received from Buick, a car company I’m just fine with. Upcoming new engine? No. Way cool and unexpected sports car? Sadly, no. Nope, this latest announcement is about the color red. Have you seen the Pixar film Wall-E? You […]

Top 3 Engine Upgrades To Increase Performance

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Auto enthusiasts are always interested in ways to give their rides more power.

2017 Kia Cadenza: Premium Over Luxury

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

A while back, my brother, a dyed in the wool gearhead, showed up at a family gathering in a rental car (he had to fly in). I just happened to be outside when he drove up, and I asked, “what is that, a Toyota?” “No, it’s a Kia,” he replied. “Proving once again that Korea […]

2017 Infiniti Q60 3.0t Sport: Special Editions & Charitable Causes

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Infiniti is an interesting company. They started out being part of this great wave of Japanese manufacturers moving upmarket to take on the Germans. All of them, Acura, Infiniti, and Lexus took dead aim at the luxury sedan market. But now, all these years later, Infiniti has morphed into something more than they started out […]

Aston Martin Vanquish S: Beyond The British GT

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

There is a lot to be said about the new Aston Martin Vanquish S. There’s tons of details – Aston Martin is a very, very detail oriented company. Man, they even give you a couple of paragraphs on how they stitch the seats. But for me, only this detail counts: Aston Martin’s 6.0 liter V12 […]

Automoblog Book Garage: Art of the Hot Rod

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

It’s pretty hard not to love a classic hot rod. Hot rods capture the imagination so profoundly, people will spend their lives building and restoring them. We saw that firsthand in a book we featured recently in this series. Cars like these are idolized in song lyrics and reminisced about through long conversations. The magnificence […]

First Look: 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

I will admit that I am not a big fan of the CUV and SUV craze that is sweeping through the American automotive scene. However, even I am gravitating towards the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, especially the Quadrifoglio version. I guess its the crossover’s overall design that is drawing me towards it. Or it just […]

1957 Jaguar XKSS: Living & Breathing Through Fire

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

You’ve got to give Jaguar credit for even trying to do this, let alone actually accomplishing it with such flare. What you see here is literally a brand new, 1957 Jaguar XKSS. It’s not a restoration. It’s not a reproduction. Jag went and built one, piece by piece, and the story gets better from there. […]

Uh-oh, someone’s been caught outside in their new party dress before the prom. Gaze in wonder, my fellow gearheads, and the upcoming, new for 2018 F90 BMW M5.

Jaguar I-PACE: An Electric Personality Unveiled In Los Angeles

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Electric vehicles are becoming more and more of a thing with car makers, especially at auto shows. They seem to serve two functions. One is to showcase technical abilities in a burgeoning arena, and the other seems to be as a hedge against the growing possibility that EVs might be mandated by law. The I-PACE […]

Letter From The UK: In Defense of Young Drivers

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Hey Teacher! Leave Them Kids Alone! A British survey recently revealed that a large majority of young people in the UK feel stereotyped by others when they drive.
