Driven: 2015 Volkswagen Jetta

Driven: 2015 Volkswagen Jetta

Once upon a time, the Volkswagen Jetta was a car with an edge, and that applied to more than the car’s angular design. The Jetta was a car for young driving enthusiasts (and even for those who were not quite so young) on a relatively tight budget and needed four doors and a trunk, but […]

TV car-show host gets ADRNLN rush at Barrett-Jackson

TV car-show host gets ADRNLN rush at Barrett-Jackson

Mike and Jim Ring arrived at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction with a very special car in tow, the 1971 De Tomaso Pantera known as ADRNLN. When the Ringbrothers, as they prefer to be known, first laid eyes on the Pantera, it was in rough shape. The car belonged to Randy Brickle, who was diagnosed with cancer […]

Driven: 2015 Chrysler 200S

Driven: 2015 Chrysler 200S

The 2015 Chrysler 200 is so much improved that the automaker should have considered changing its name. Really, just about every time I told someone that I was test driving a 200, I’d get a wince in return. That’s because people remember the previous 200, basically a warmed over Sebring that was dull and ordinary […]

Future Classic: Dodge Viper

Future Classic: Dodge Viper

Originally intended as Chrysler’s modern take on the Shelby Cobra, the Dodge Viper concept was simple and straightforward in 1989: A no-frills roadster capable of going from 0 to 100 miles per hour and then back to zero in 15 seconds or less. It was the principle behind the Cobra way back when, and the […]

Big bang: Dawn broke on factory-built racing Corvette with historic SR-2 (now for sale)

‘If the 1960s was the Golden Age of motorsport, the 1950s was the Turning Point.” Or so I wrote in an article nearly a quarter-century ago in Vette Magazine. I was referring to the Corvette SR-2 factory-built racer of 1956. It was the first racing Corvette of its kind, making it the original vine from […]

Driven: 2015 Ram ProMaster City cargo van

Small commercial vans have been both necessary and popular for many years seemingly everywhere but the United States. Bigger is better is the rule here in the land of wide open spaces. But bigger not only isn’t better, it makes no sense in the narrow city streets of most of the world’s large and even […]

Pick of the Week: 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner

Pick of the Week: 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner

One of the greatest tricks of marketing automobiles, or anything else for that matter, is creating demand for something that people didn’t know they wanted. So it was when Ford introduced a convertible for 1957 that was also a hardtop, doing away with fragile fabric tops and replacing them with a complex mechanism to retract […]

Keno brothers share their plans, and their passions

Keno brothers share their plans, and their passions

The photo, as you can see for yourself, shows two adolescent boys, twins actually, stocking caps pulled over matching mops of blond hair on what is obviously a chilly day as they stand perched on the frame rails of an open trailer in front of a rather dilapidated old car. The photo was taken 45 […]

Gone is the 310-horsepower, 5.4-liter V8 that propelled the Navigator in previous […]

Hood ornaments from the Arizona Concours

Hood ornaments from the Arizona Concours

Photos By Hans Marquez At the Arizona Concours d’Elegance I was taken back and inspired by the rare and unique automobiles that were on display. The ambiance of these immaculate cars sprawled across the Arizona Biltmore lawn with music from Frank Sinatra playing in the background almost made me feel a bit sad. My generation, the […]
