2012 Dodge Avenger R/T: 2011 New York Auto Show

The Chrysler 200 has a hit Super Bowl commercial and Eminem at its back--but what does the nearly identical Dodge Avenger have, aside from its quasi-superhero name?

The Chrysler 200 and Eminem

With Chrysler’s release of the all new 200 sedan came the need for a stellar marketing plan. Enter stage right: Eminem. Can you think of a better composition to underscore a car commercial about hope than Lose Yourself? I can’t. The first time I saw the commercial it immediately...Read More»

My Memorable Motor Show Moment: Tokyo, 1991

It was a bright and breezy Autumn Saturday in 1991 when I found myself standing on the broad plaza of the Makuhari Messe, gazing at the modern, spacious glass buildings and watching thousands of people stepping off the arriving trains.

My First Impressions of M

It's the last day of the 2007 New York International Auto Show and I'm racing onto the ferry, to at the very least, catch a glimpse of everything I had been reading about all week.

TVR
The British International (Birmingham) Motor Show (2000)

I queued for an eternity to steal a brief moment in the driver's seat of an R34 Skyline, staring pensively at its metallic blue paint and wondering when I would ever have enough spare change to own one. I'd gone with a good friend and colleague, driving up from High Wycombe, the English commuter...Read More»

Dodge Challenger Inspires a New Generation

America is filled with car nuts. Take a summer's drive down to the local Dairy Queen on any Friday evening, and one can find far more custom builds and restorations than ice cream cones. Most of us can pinpoint something in our youth that sparked our undying interest in the automobile. For me, I'm...Read More»

Lamborghini Countach
Lambo Love Affair: The Sydney Motor Show 1985

As a teenager, my walls were decorated with iconic symbols of speed. Fine examples of motor sculpture from Lotus Esprits to Ford GTs, the usual assembly of Porsche 911s, the iconic Porsche 959. But none held more fascination than the gorgeous deep red Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole...Read More»

My Best Auto Show Moment: The Batmobile

Going to the New York Auto Show has been a favorite springtime event for me for many years. I used to drag my wife and make her sit in each car and listen to me talk about the positives and negatives of each model.
