  • Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird

    Some of the world's most interesting cars have the greatest stories behind them. The Dodge Daytona and the Plymouth Superbird are no different. At their core, they were built to shame Ford and Chevrolet in NASCAR, but Dodge was so adamant to ensure the car's success that it went through great engineering measures. Like, bringing on an individual from Chrysler's missile division to engineer the car. Yes, Chrysler had a missile division, as Donut Media recalled in its latest episode of "Up to Speed." Chrysler built ballistic missiles designed by Nazi scientists that the United States brought...

    2018 Chevrolet Camaro preview

    Chevrolet isn't messing around with the Camaro. The sixth-generation car, which arrived as a 2016 model, is the best yet.

    2018 Ford Mustang first drive review: getting serious

    Ever since Chevrolet relaunched the Camaro, it’s effectively been poking Ford, almost trying to provoke its oldest rival with cars like the SS 1LE, Z/28, and ZL1. And Ford has spent the past several years politely asking Chevy to stop with a short string of competitors in the Boss 302, GT500...

  • The first publicly available Buick GNX heads to auction
    Own the first Buick GNX sold to the public

    Grand National Experimental. Those three words mean a whole lot to Buick fans. That's because they are the name applied to a car that was once a humble Regal.

  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

    The 2018 Dodge SRT Demon begins shipping to dealers in the U.S. and Canada today, and it is being offered with some accessories and options that we didn't know about previously. We reached out to Dodge do find out how many Demons have left the plant, and a spokeswoman told us that only a few dozen cars started shipping today, and the ramp-up is slow. She also wrote: "Shipping is dependent on options—late availability colors and level of up-fit necessary (for example, the matte black graphics package is hand-painted after the vehicle leaves the plant)." Every Demon comes with a...
