Mazda MX-5 Power’s Up

The current iteration of the Mx-5 (née Miata) is not a perfect car. For starters, as gorgeous as the RF is, a proper hardtop is unavailable.

That’s pretty much it, actually.

Ford to Stop With the Cars. Unfortunately, Not the Trucks

I haven’t written about Ford lately, right? I don’t have a bad taste in my mouth, so probably not.

Anyway, it seems that Dearborn, MI-based auto manufacturer is dealing with some problems (that does sound familiar.) This time it’s based on lowered profits and decreased demand for their vehicles. Continue reading “Ford to Stop With the Cars. Unfortunately, Not the Trucks”

(Unfortunate) Redesign for 2019 Camaro

Constantly following in the steps of their Ford competitor, the Chevy Camaro is getting a new look for the 2019 model.

Ford: The Other Side of Things

Our last post was a reluctant ode to the job Ford’s development of true-blue sporty vehicles. Despite a lifelong bias against the Blue Oval for purely geographic reasons, to say nothing of my complete lack of interest in most of their vehicles, it was important to recognize and acknowledge the existence of the Focus RS and the Fiesta ST.
