New Car Options That Aren’t – but Ought to Be!

It's a shame the government - rather than the market - is the driving force behind what's standard in new cars. Imagine, given the technology available, what options might be on...

Doomed: Jaguar X-Type 2002-2011

American car companies - GM and Ford especially - get heckled a lot and justly for repackaging their economy cars and trying to sell the lipstick-on-a-pig’d result as luxury cars. Examples...

I took my '76 Trans Am out yesterday; I needed a reboot - and it needed exercise. Drove the orange-painted, screaming chickened "gas guzzler" around for about an hour, taking my...

The Yugo and its Merits

The joke goes: How do you double the value of a Yugo? Fill up the gas tank! True enough. And yet, nearly 800,000 of them were made - all the way through 2008, a...
