The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 59: Hanging with the Machidas

Spent the day hanging out with RichardM and Bridget at the campsite near Quartzsite, AZ.The weather was warm and not windy at all which made it quite enjoyable to sit in the sun and chat about whatever was on our mind.  It would have been a perfect setting, but the large number of RVs surrounding us tended to ruin things a little bit.  Here's three views from the top of my URRV: We did take RichardM's truck into town to check out e-bikes for Bridget but nothing suitable was found.  One plac...

Toyota Developing ‘Virtual Sunroof’ For Future Models

Do you ever get the sense that much of today’s automotive technology whittles away the more natural aspects of driving? We’ve endured numb electronic steering, advanced driving aids, absent volume knobs, overly complex infotainment systems, and faux engine sounds for a few years now. To be honest, it’s been a mixed bag. Sometimes these things […] The post Toyota Developing ‘Virtual Sunroof’ For Future Models appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Unusual Vintage Auto Design: The 1959 Fiat 600 Multipla Microvan

Something I love: Cars that look as if the designer has never seen a car before. That's praise, not an insult. If your brain wasn't clogged with 10,000 Instagram images of what a car is supposed to look like, what would you draw? Designing something fresh was undoubtedly easier in the 1950s, prior to globalization and the internet. Take a look at this car that could only have come from mid-century Italy, the 1959 Fiat 600 Multipla: You know it's a quirky design whe...

LAND DOWN UNTER. Schlachtwerk’s Aussie-Bound Kawasaki W650

Written by Martin Hodgson They say a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step; but for one particular German it only makes sense to begin with a Kawasaki W650. Tommy Thöring has been a mainstay of the European custom motorcycle scene for years and is a regular on the Sultans of Sprint travelling circus. But now he’s packing up his Schlachtwerk operation and heading for the Land Down Under. Sydney to be exact. So to prepare for this next chapter of his journey he’s built a bike to...

Letter From The UK: Snow Way To Carry On

In his latest Letter From The UK, Geoff Maxted examines the phenomenon (and the irony) of why we are still in disbelief every time it snows. In Europe over the last few days, very heavy snow has fallen in various countries. Mostly these are countries where it happens every year and are thus popular for winter sports, but this year there has been an extreme snowfall. In one location there was over ten feet of the white stuff being cleared from the roof of a school, for example. All Show & No Go ...
