  • 10 millionth Ford Mustang

    After 54 years of continuous production, the 10 millionth Ford Mustang has galloped off the assembly line. To mark the occasion, Ford said on Wednesday that it invited 60 Mustang owners representing each generation of the ponycar to celebrate the 10 millionth car at its Flat Rock, Michigan, assembly plant. The owners plan to spell out the milestone production number with their cars and the automaker has arranged for a flyover salute by a P-51 Mustang fighter plane. Ford said it also plans for other celebrations at its Dearborn, Michigan, headquarters with employees. The 10 millionth Mustang...

    A pair of Dodge Demons will raise hell (and money) in Monterey

    More is better. It's a simple formula and Dodge knows how to tweak it for maximum effect. That's how the Hellcat was originally born, and how we've arrived in a world today that exists with a vehicle called the Challenger SRT Demon. A street-legal drag racing denizen of destructive speed offered...

    2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt first drive review: noteworthy and nostalgic

    I want to be a hero. A hero reminds me of the best versions of me, especially when I can hardly muster enough courage to get out of bed in the morning. The 1968 Ford Mustang fastback sprayed in Dark Highland Green wasn’t a hero when it rolled off the line in January 1968 and onto the screen...

  • 1987 Buick GNX

    The heyday of the Detroit muscle car era certainly was fun while it lasted. But with high insurance premiums, government safety and emission regulations, and the first of the petroleum shortages cut the party short. Instead of muscle cars, we were left with the likes of Chevrolet Corvettes with only 165 horsepower, feeble Fords (think Mustang II) and Chrysler K cars. While Buick hadn’t been a major player in the heyday of Detroit muscle cars, but a few years later, it would lead something of a muscular renaissance, albeit one based on six, not eight, cylinders. Buick provided the pace...

    The Dodge Charger and its Challenger sibling soldier on for the 2019 model year with yet a new round of updates. For the Charger, Dodge has very much focused on the SRT Hellcat flagship.

    The 1930 Ford Model A sedan was a rather mundane thing.

Put it in the hands of a rock star and a hot rod shop, though, and the Model A can...
