Good Luck Finding Performance Tires for Your Classic Muscle Car

If you own a '60s or '70s-era muscle car, you've probably become aware of an ironic problem: It is virtually impossible to find high-performance tires for these high-performance beasts. The BF Goodrich...

Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser, 1964-1977

Here is a fact that some will find hard to swallow: GM's Oldsmobile division was once the number-three best-selling brand of car in the United States. Believe it or not. Given Oldsmobile's consumptive...

Worst Car Names Ever

If it was built before the 1980s, your vehicle was designed to burn gasoline - and nothing else. That's what was sold back then, so it's what the engineers assumed when they...

The Forgotten Trans-Am …

I own a "forgotten year" second generation (1970-1981)  Trans Am. A '76 TA, in Carousel Red with Honeycomb rims. The early Second Gen cars - 1970-73 especially - get most of the...

Hitler’s Mercedes…
