Memory Lane: Six Soldiers & A Ford Custom

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

It’s Friday night and the witching hour is at hand. I have no wheels and I’m stuck on an army base. I’m sitting at a table in the NCO club surrounded by 5 colleagues. The place is dark. Even during the day, the dive is somber and gloomy. I finished my basic training not too […]

What do you call a MINI that isn’t really “mini” anymore? It’s called the 2016 MINI Cooper Clubman, and it’s designed for those who want the sporty handling of the traditional MINI Cooper, but need a larger compact with greater utility. This gives compact hatchback shoppers another option.

Recently, Danielle and I were taking an evening stroll on the Detroit Riverfront. On any given night, people are there fishing, biking, jogging, or taking in the views of Canada, Belle Isle, and the Ambassador Bridge. Standing by the lighthouse just past the Renaissance Center, we dove deep into a conversation about muscle cars. Danielle […]

When I was growing up, my neighbor had a black Nissan Maxima. A sticker on the rear window read “4DSC,” meaning 4-door sports car. Indeed the Maxima has changed a lot since I was a kid, with the latest redesign reflecting a focus on performance, fuel economy, and connectivity. The now eighth-generation Maxima, although redesigned […]

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

It may be hard to believe but in 1976, BMW only offered three models: the 2002, 3.0i, and 530i.

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

When we think about customizing our cars, it’s very easy to zero in on performance. Chances are that’s what first comes to mind but consider this – and just fill in the blank: “My car would be so much better if I could make this one modification: ________” What did you say? If you said […]

First Look: 2017 Mercedes-Benz E400 4MATIC Wagon

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

“Wagons do not sell in the United States.” This is what many automakers repeatedly claim whenever we ask if a particular vehicle’s wagon variant will arrive in the U.S. or not. This statement is especially true for luxury wagons, from premium brands, with hefty price tags. However, motoring journalists like me who are also wagon […]

Swann Navigator HD Dash Camera Review

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

I finally received my Swann Navigator HD Dash Camera and instinctively, I shook the box. There was no rattling. A good sign. I opened the box to find another box, nestled in bubble packs, containing the camera. The first thing you notice is the “presentation box” and how prominently the camera is displayed. It’s as if […]

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the all-new, second generation 2017 Audi A5. At first glance, it looks almost like the old one, but the two vehicles do not share a single body panel.

As a new sales consultant at Sioux Falls Ford in 2009, I was enamored with the Ford Shelby GT500 on our showfloor. Until that point in my life, I had never seen one in person. And it was parked right next to my desk. That black car with orange stripes inspired me during those early […]

It’s most certainly a dream car – the kind people put on the background of their computer or phone. If I were a kid, it would make for a nice poster on my bedroom wall. Who am I kidding? Even as an adult I would still rock a GT-R poster. However, if a $109,990 USD […]

In all my long days as an automotive writer, not one single car manufacturer has asked me to attend their display at an international motor show, and drape myself alluringly across the hood of one of their vehicles.
