What do people shopping for a new vehicle these days value the most? Is it power? Nah, most vehicles are within striking distance of of one another thanks to turbocharging running rampant.
I’m a bit of an odd position here, in that everything that can be said about this car has apparently already been said. Truly, I’m not sure what angle I’m going to take on this thing, so as not to simply regurgitate the words of my peers at the end of the week.
You read that right, the era of classic cars is now over.
I can’t remember exactly when it started, but one of my close friends recently started calling me “Grandpa Andy”, and he’s not wrong, he’s just an asshole. Maybe it has something to do with my affection for a good chunky knit cardigan, slip on footwear, or a really peaty scotch. It’s certainly not because I have…
8:00 AM sharp, that’s what time the doors opened. 8:17, that’s what time I arrived, and by 8:30 I was already reeling from the amount of gorgeousness that lay before me.
I needn’t go on about the performance prowess of this vehicle. I find the numbers associated with the sixth generation Camaro SS to be among the less important factors contributing to it being a thoroughly enjoyable vehicle.
Being a major player in the automotive media marketplace isn’t easy. PR people are always bugging you to come to their fancy parties, designers want your take on their latest creation, and #brands are constantly hitting you up, begging you to put them in the spotlight.
When I learned that I’d be getting the top of the line Escalade for week, a number of story ideas flooded my head. I could notify all my friends that I had it, and spend the better part of the week trucking them around to events, that would give me a good idea of its practicality. I contemplated a quick trip to Vegas…
This morning I left cool and soggy Los Angeles for cold and snowy Bozeman, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m up here with Dave Burnett, aka. Puppyknuckles, and tomorrow we hit the road west, bound for Seattle in a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. What model we’ll be in is up to the automotive gods, but if you want to send some…
Got my ass up out of bed early this morning, and headed down to O.C. Coffee & Cars to get some shots of 3 star cars from Spectre. The C-X75 is even more striking in person than I imagined it would be, and it also led me to ask myself how in the hell Dave Bustista fit in there.
Last night whilst enjoying the masterful second episode of FX’s Fargo, I was temporarily inundated with advertisements because I haven’t upgraded to the ad-free experience on Hulu. I know, it’s shameful, but I really need to save every bit of $ possible if I’m going to get myself a Limited Slip Diff for Christmas.
When an invite to Willow Springs Raceway for FCA’s open house popped up in my inbox my first thought was,
Okay, you’re close, you’re really, really close. All you have to do is click the picture above or HERE, and you can read my well researched, definitely not a rant, piece of work over on The AutoTempest Blog.
The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado can now be had with a 2.8L Duramax turbo diesel, rejoice oh yee midsize truck fans! Rejoice!
Okay, so I think this is a pretty sweet deal; you watch a 30 second video, use your vast knowledge of vehicle hoods, and exhaust notes to figure out what these cars are, then leave your guesses in the comments.
This past week I ventured up to Solvang, CA to sample the 2016 Chevy Colorado diesel, as well as the full 2016 Silverado lineup. There were also a couple of refreshed Equinoxes on hand, they looked good.
First off, let me say that I think it’s nice that Chevy brought a Red Hot Z06 up to their truck event in central California, but it would be a whole lot nicer if they would let me get some time behind the wheel in it.
First off, let me apologize for the wind noise, it was hot as hell, and my man in the drivers seat wanted to roll with the A/C off, so he put the windows down. You can still hear him talking about the insane downforce, how Willow is a 3rd/4th gear track, and you can hear me just kind of laughing about how insane the…
You know what was cool in 2007? No, not Infiniti, Infiniti hasn’t ever been cool. Spending money like it was going out of style, that was cool in 2007. Pre-recession America was super down with tossing cash at all sorts of frivolous things.
