Driven: 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T

Also see the second opinion (below) by Bob Golfen For the 2015 model year, Dodge’s Challenger challenges the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro in eight versions, which is the same number of gears offered by the automatic transmission of the Challenger R/T that I’ve been driving lately. The R/T (short for Road and Track) is […]

Future Classic: Mazda MX-5 Miata

Future Classic: Mazda MX-5 Miata

It seemed as though a void needed to be filled after MG sold its last MGB in 1980, Triumph was put to rest in 1981, and the Fiat 124 Spider was quick to follow in 1985.

Driven: 2015 Scion FR-S

The nice folks at Toyota/Lexus/Scion offered a choice: I could spend a week doing a test drive of a 2015 Scion FR-S equipped with a manual transmission or an “Automatic with Paddle Shifters and Dynamic Rev Management.” While APSDRM has a certain ring to it, the choice was easy: 6-speed manual, please. So the car […]

The unselfish side of classic car and hot rod shows

The unselfish side of classic car and hot rod shows

Sometimes as a car enthusiast, the hobby can feel a bit selfish if not totally self-centered. Think about it, you spend all this time getting and maintaining or even restoring your car so you can be the best in show or fastest on the track. Your car is a reflection of you and your interests. […]

Driven: 2015 Mercedes-Benz E400 coupe

Once upon a time, the number on the tail of a Mercedes-Benz indicated the sort of engine that could be found at the other end of the chassis: 200 = 2.0-liter four-cylinder; 300 = 3.0-liter six-cylinder; 500 = 5.0-liter V8. Not anymore. I’ve just come off a week driving the 2015 Mercedes-Benz E400 coupe, a […]

Pick of the Week: Mazda RX-7

Some Japanese sports cars are gaining leverage with car collectors, but others, not so much.

Mazda also has an entry in that game, the rare Cosmo that’s currently […]
