Cadillac made many such vehicles beginning in the late 1960s, when pursuit of market share took...

  • Opel Astra Cabrio teaser

    We’ve been reporting about a convertible version of the latest-generation Opel Astra sold in Europe since 2009 but news concerning the car never really heated up until last month when reports emerged suggesting that the car, along with the recently revealed Opel Astra GTC sports hatch, could be sold in the U.S. wearing a Buick badge.

    Rogue Muscle Car Invades President George W. Bush's Front Lawn

  • Rolls Royce Corniche

    We do not, as a rule, revel in the misfortunes of others. We don't enjoy kicking folks when they're down, or pointing and laughing as cruel Mistress Fortuna sets up phony traffic cones to direct them off the yellow brick road and down some back alley in Queens. It's just not our style. Correction: it's usually not our style. Nicholas Cage has a strange effect on us. Nicholas, if you're reading this, you should know that we really liked you, once upon a time. Valley Girl? Brilliant. Birdie? Equally so. Raising Arizona, Moonstruck, Wild at Heart? You were fully on fire, or as the kids say...
