The newest, most efficient, and oil-saving way to lubricate your bike-chains

Ever tried painting a wall? If you had to choose between using a paintbrush and a roller, chances are you’d choose the latter, right? It’s incredibly fast, does a uniform job, and is just simply mess free. Paint doesn’t trickle or spill from a roller onto your hands, the floor, or worse, your clothes. The roller’s sponge holds the paint, distributing it in a perfect coat on the wall without any hassle. You end up wasting less paint, coating your wall evenly, and staying mess-free. Now imagine ...

This Tesla Pickup Concept is ‘driving’ me crazy!

It’s a shame that this conceptual Tesla pickup is fan-made, because it’s an absolute beauty! Designed with sheer attention to detail, the pickup is envisioned as a part of Tesla’s Model P series, by Istanbul-based designer, Emre Husmen.The conceptual Model P 2019 (let’s just call it that for now) is a brilliant exercise in brand and form semantics… that’s a fancy-design-jargon way of saying that it looks exactly like something Tesla would launch. With the beautiful razor thin headlamps and taill...

Riding Yagi on Phantom Canyon Road

Glamping again at the Penrose BLM site.After work, rode over to CO State Highway 67, aka Phantom Canyon Road.  It used to be a railroad route between the town of Florence and Cripple Creek.  Apparently a lot of gold was transported by train back in the day.Nowadays it's a pretty smooth dirt road with two narrow railroad tunnels and one remaining steel bridge (I think it's been restored, looks too good).  Towering, rocky canyon walls  The southern or Lower Tunnel entrance  The nor...

Tesla’s board is about to get a lot smaller

Tesla is cutting its board down by more than 36 percent to seven directors by 2020, a move that includes the loss of some CEO Elon Musk’s early advisers and allies, according to regulator filings posted Friday. Longtime board member Brad Buss and Linda Johnson Rice, who joined two years ago as an independent director, will not seek re-election this year. Their terms will expire at the upcoming annual meeting. The board said in the proxy filing that it doesn’t plan to fill their seats. The ...

Unhappy Journey: Fiat Chrysler Recalls a Slew of Dodge Darts for Potential Rollaway Issue

The Dodge Dart rolled unceremoniously out of the Fiat Chrysler stable after the 2016 model year, but the automaker now worries it may roll out of owners’ driveways.

Bodacious: An 80s style Iron 1200 from Prism Supply Co.

Despite being steeped in the custom scene, Harley-Davidson doesn’t often donate bikes to custom builders. So this Sportster Iron 1200 from Prism Supply Co., dripping with early 80s style, is something of a rarity. It’s a Sporty with an impeccable pedigree: brothers Zach and Jake Hindes built it with input from Dean Micetich of DicE magazine. The Sportster must be the most customized motorcycle platform around the world, but Prism have delivered something special without firing up the grind...

Nissan Supports Notre Dame Restoration, Ditto for Relationship With Renault

Nissan Motor Co. has pledged a donation of 100,000 euros ($112,000) for the restoration of the fire-kissed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

Bolt Pattern: GM Seeks Trademark for ‘Bolt EUV’

General Motors has already announced it will build a new electric Chevrolet to serve as a sibling to the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt.

2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature – Inching Ever Closer to Perfection

Does a crossover really need to be good to drive, or is mere competence good enough to win buyers? Most carmakers settle for “good enough,” and yet they keep selling.

I’m certain that if Mazda offered a panel van, some fool out there […] The post 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature – Inching Ever Closer to Perfection appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Diesel Engine, All-wheel Drive Coming to Mazda 6; No Word on Suspension Lift, Cladding

It seems the idea of a sport-utility sedan just doesn’t resonate, despite automakers’ best efforts. Oh well, at least there’s still the prospect of greater traction and somewhat improved fuel economy coming to Mazda’s slinky 6 sedan. During this week’s New York reveal of the much-delayed CX-5 diesel, the automaker mentioned that the 2.2-liter oil […] The post Diesel Engine, All-wheel Drive Coming to Mazda 6; No Word on Suspension Lift, Cladding appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Get Excited for the 2019 Isle of Man TT Race by Watching This Trailer

A Race Like No Other The Isle of Man TT Race is one of the most insane events in the world. Every year thousands of people flock to a small island in the middle of the Irish sea to watch riders shoot down a public road circuit at freakishly high speeds. It’s the stuff of motorsport legend, and racers die pushing the limits. I’ve never been to the Isle of Man.

TTAC Commentator Majda writes:  Sajeev, I recently bought a 2002 Miata, manual transmission, in silver.
