When Did Korean Cars Become Cool?

March 23, 2012

It wasn’t too long ago when the only reason to buy a Korean made car was the fact that you couldn’t afford anything else. They weren’t well built, they weren’t that attractive and they weren’t even that fuel efficient. They were cheap to buy and, even though you didn’t brag about what you drove, they [...]

What vehicle gets you through Ohio winters?

February 10, 2012

October 20, 2011

All summer, I've been driving a great looking 1979 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe. It has performed flawlessly, I have been surrounded by a luxurious tufted leather interior and it elicits compliments everywhere I go. The best thing about the car is that I only paid $2,000 for it at the Classic Motorcar Auctions event held at the [...]

What's Your Favorite Car Color?

August 30, 2011
