Classic Car “Accessories”

Last weekend I took my old Pontiac to a car show. It's a pretty reliable beast given it's pushing 40 years old. But it is pushing 40 years old and stuff...

Bye-bye New Beetle

Turns out the second time's not the charm. VW's New Beetle only lasted 12 years in production (2010 will be the final year; 1998 was the first year). Though it arguably can be...

Chrysler New Yorker, 1955-1982

There's a reason it's known as the Empire State. New York is outsized and audacious - not a place for the timid. So is the car named after the Big Apple. It's...

A Sabot in the Gears?

People sometimes accuse me of being a technophobe or even a Luddite because of my critiques of modern vehicles. But it's not fearĀ of technology that drives me. It's cost-benefit analysis. Increasingly, the costs...
