Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Bentley is named for the nearly four-mile straight that defines the back half of the Circuit de la Sarth, and honors the marque’s numerous accomplishments at the venerable track. Could this road-going namesake’s price make its purchase an equally glorious achievement? Many of you viewed potential buyers for yesterday’s 1990 Chrysler LeBaron GT in the same light you might equate to admirers of dwarf amputee porn, wondering: who the hell likes that? A small and suspect audience the car may have, but it was the $4,500 asking price that really raised your hackles. It also raised a 68 percent Crack Pipe loss meaning nothing about that old school drop top panned out. Advertisement The LeBaron, of course, has become a bit of a joke. In light of today’s standards, its position as even a near-luxury car seems laughable. The same can’t be said however for pretty much any Bentley car from pretty much any era. … [Read more...] about At $7,500, Would You Get This Non-Op 1989 Bentley Mulsanne S Operating Once More?

2019 Ford Edge first drive “The 2019 Ford Edge is an aging model reinvigorated with new tech and a welcome dose of sportiness.” ST model’s V6 grunt Well-tuned chassis Spacious interior Long list of tech features Questionable use of hallowed ST badge Lifeless steering ST’s cheesy engine-noise enhancer Price climbs quickly with options No one would blame you for forgetting the Ford Edge exists. Wedged between compact crossovers and larger three-row midsize models, the Edge doesn’t really have a clear purpose. Its rivals are a small group of two-row midsize crossovers, including the Nissan Murano and the five-passenger version of the Hyundai Santa Fe. More competition will soon arrive in the form of the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer and a five-seat version of the Volkswagen Atlas. Ford’s plan to abandon cars in favor of trucks and SUVs in the United States will also elevate the Edge’s … [Read more...] about 2019 Ford Edge first drive review
Previous Next 1 of 10 The 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor gets a handful of updates for the new model year. The truck may look basically the same on the outside, but some new tech features should make it even better at conquering rough terrain. For 2019, the Raptor’s Fox Racing internal-bypass shock absorbers get a new system called Live Valve that allows them to adjust on the fly. Like the adaptive-damping systems used in many sports cars and luxury cars, Live Valve lets the Fox shocks change their level of firmness, depending on conditions. In the Raptor, Live Valve allows for 13.0 inches of suspension travel at the front, and 13.9 inches at the rear. That’s exactly what you want when negotiating uneven terrain. The system also works with the Raptor’s existing Terrain Management system to adjust the shocks to suit multiple drive modes. So when the Raptor is back on pavement, the shocks automatically adjust accordingly to allow for a smoother ride. Also … [Read more...] about 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor gets smarter with new off-road tech
New model year also brings rev-matching tech and a 1,000-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Fans of the pony car know the very first ‘Stang to carry this badge came out back in 1968 with a unique design inspired by the 1967 Shelby GT notchback coupe prototype.

It will be paired with an equally lovely DB4 GT Zagato Continuation model. After joining forces to create an exquisite quartet of special models based on the Vanquish, Aston Martin and Zagato are teaming up once again for an equally interesting project. First announced in September 2018, the DBZ Centenary Collection is making the headlines courtesy of newly released design sketches giving us a better idea of what to expect from the lovely pair.
