    Return of the Beetle – Mark I

    I've begun to notice a fair number of old (Mark I) Beetles on the road. The original ones.  Last sold here (new) in the late '70s. Not at car shows (or...

    Many new cars are optimized for ethanol - "flex-fuel" compatible is how it's usually described. The problem, of course, is that a majority of cars in service are not optimized for...

    Retro Review: 1980-’81 Z28 Camaro
