The history of number plates

At the turn of the 20 th century, mechanical vehicles became increasingly popular in the UK, which also meant there were a lot of road traffic accidents. As a result, it was clear that there needed to be a way of identifying cars as it happened more frequently. The Motor Car Act of 1903 helped solve this problem and from January 1904 it became a legal requirement for all vehicles to have a registered number plate. The very first number plate was issued in London and simply read A...

Cadillac Boss Not Outwardly Terrified of Brand’s Transition

Were it not for his Canadian place of birth, Cadillac President Steve Carlisle might make an ideal centrist presidential candidate. On paper, anyway. Mild-mannered and cautiously optimistic, not prone to exaggerated doomsaying, Carlisle would either be triumphantly swept into power, or creamed like a bushel of Iowa corn. Well, he’s not running, though he is couching […] The post Cadillac Boss Not Outwardly Terrified of Brand’s Transition appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Rare Rides: A 1965 Brasinca Uirapuru – Say What?

Today’s Rare Ride is a very limited production coupe from Brazil that appears to be very derivative in its styling. But what if that’s not the case at all?

Freedom EV: free/open replacement firmware for your electric vehicle -- including a Tesla

Freedom EV is a free/open software stack intended to replace the software in your electric vehicle, it's been tested on a Tesla Model X and should work on a Model S, if you can get root. Electric vehicles are very exciting but the same informatics and versatility that make them exciting also invite manufacturers to add all kinds of antifeatures (like batteries with plenty of charge remaining that refuse to power a vehicle because you've only paid for so much electricity; to say nothing of t...

2019 Mazda CX-3 GT AWD Review – Napoleon Complex

In review: 2019 GMC Terrain

Once among the homeliest of GMC's offerings, the Terrain has morphed into a good-looking vehicle, and with a smooth ride and decent overall performance.

Junkyard Find: 1978 Toyota Truck

The Toyota Hilux pickup truck first hit the streets in 1968, shoving aside flimsier trucks based on the Corona and Crown within a few years.

Are These Onyx Electric Mopeds the Perfect Urban Commuter Bikes?

Pedals and Electric Power Mopeds were popular machines in the 1970s and 80s, but over time the bicycle/motorcycle bike fell out of style. Now, they’re quite uncommon. You see either scooters or motorcycles, but the pedal moped is a rarity on the road. That may change in the future thanks to ONYX Motorbikes. ONYX Motorbikes got its start where many good ideas go, Indigogo. After raising about $1 million, Tim Seward, the founder of the company, and his team have delivered on some truly attractive...
