America’s Truckers, Why Is Your Time and Fuel More Valuable Than Mine?

Long distance driving is something that I enjoy doing, but most of the time, my driving is restricted to within 50 miles of where I live, just outside of Detroit. In the past few months, though, I’ve been a bit of a highway child. IShow More Summary

last monthVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

In our travels to New Zealand, we drove a huge variety of cars, all of which were excellent in their own ways.
