Muscle Cars?

Muscle Cars?

What constitutes a Muscle Car? The term “Muscle Car” defined by Merriam-webster.com is “any of a group of American-made 2-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving.” This definition can easily raise multiple questions like, only an American-made 2-door can be a muscle car? Some say the muscle car was only made from 1964 to 1974 and some of today’s cars are still yet “Modern Muscle Cars”. My question about so-called Modern Muscle Cars is, … Read entire article »

The Return of Studebaker?

The Return of Studebaker?

It almost seems like it can’t be true or it is some sort of joke, especially in these economic times, but it is true, the Studebaker name is trying to make a comeback. On the website StudebakerMotorCompany.com there is a Disclaimer which states: “Studebaker Motor Company is not yet able to produce vehicles, as we are in the planning stages. However, we are almost ready to sell Studebaker shirts and hats.” With all of this being said, I took it upon myself to … Read entire article »

Basically, Chevy insinuates if you own a Chevy truck, it can get you through anything, including the apocalypse, but if you have a Ford truck, you are doomed. This jab has fired Ford up! So much so that they even tried to stop the airing of the commercial on Super Bowl night, but they failed. … Read entire article »

The 2013 Ford Fusion or Aston Martin?

The 2013 Ford Fusion or Aston Martin?

In case you haven’t seen it yet, Ford has been showing off it’s great looking 2013 Ford Fusion, but is it really a new look? Yes it is a new look for the Fusion, but doesn’t it somewhat resemble a brand of car which Ford owned until 2007? I don’t know if you see it too, but to me it resembles what a cheaper Aston Martin 4-door would possibly look like. Take a look at … Read entire article »

Hunnert Car Pile Up Continued…

Hunnert Car Pile Up Continued…

I was so happy with the HCPU that I decided to expand on Rob’s article and further the discussion, I figured I would give both of our readers some more to read on the subject.   The spectrum of my automotive appreciation is quite narrow, there are things that I can tolerate, and themes that I despise, mostly pet peeves and irritants.  The HCPU focuses on the single greatest following of excellence in automotive culture.
