The Grooviest Cars of the 1970s

List of Groovy, Righteous & Far Out Cars that defined the 1970s.

Pros & Cons of Autonomous Cars

Like it or not, autonomous cars are the future of the new car scene. Enthusiasts might cringe at the thought of “driving” these vehicles, but the sad truth is that most car buyers aren’t enthusiasts.

33 of the Most Underrated, Overlooked & Underappreciated Muscle Cars

Almost everyone loves a Chevelle SS, Shelby Mustang, or MOPAR equipped with a HEMI. Traditional muscle cars involved big engines stuffed into a mid-size car with good looks, and while those famous cars are great, there were quite a few other muscle cars built in that era (or after) that offered similar performance. Since these underrated muscle cars aren’t as popular, there is less demand and ...

Depreciated Dream Cars That Are Now Affordable

“Dream cars” earn their title by being way out of reach for the average car enthusiast. Sometimes it’s due to ultra-low production numbers, but usually the exclusivity comes from six or even seven-figure MSRPs. Not a lot of us are willing to drop more than the price of an average American home on a car. However, depreciation is a wonderful thing for car buyers, even if it hurts the first ...

50 Terrible Car Names

Some cars have names that fit like a glove. Take the Dodge Viper. A car that even aesthetically resembles a crotaline snake (pit viper). If you don’t respect the Vipers’ horsepower then it will bite you (by means of spinning out and wrapping it around your neighbor’s tree).  Other times cars are named poorly.  Now a great car can stand on its own, above the fray of a terrible car name. The ...

Best Cars You Can Now Import to the U.S.

It’s too bad that manufacturers make a ton of great cars overseas, then forget to have them imported to North America. Usually this is due to the vehicle not meeting emissions standards, crash testing standards, or the top brass thinking it wouldn’t sell. If an enthusiast wanted one of these vehicles, they usually had to pay massive fees to an importing company, or take the risk themselves on ...

15 Cars that Deserve a Manual Transmission

Stick-shifts are great, but manual transmissions have been fading from manufacturer’s options list ever since the first automatic hit the streets about 70+ years ago. Sure, CVTs won the fuel efficiency game 20 years ago, and dual-clutch transmissions took over track cars about a decade ago, but there’s just something fun about rowing your own gears.
