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.

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 ...

Ford’s Mustang Bragging Brings Out the Best in Rival Automakers

Ford celebrated its iconic sports coupe’s 55th birthday at the New York International Auto Show this week by proclaiming Wednesday as “Mustang Day.” But Mustang Day was overshadowed by other nostalgic celebrations taking place at the New York Auto Show, specifically Nissan’s 50th Anniversary Editions of the GT-R (which looked excellent) and 370Z (which one […] The post Ford’s Mustang Bragging Brings Out the Best in Rival Automakers appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

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. This makes sense, as the technology and underpinnings of that car – not to mention all the R&D investment – should be shared with other GM machines. In today’s market, that likely means […] The post Bolt Pattern: GM Seeks Trademark for ‘Bolt EUV’ appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

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...

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.

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. It was on my list of places to go when I visited Europe last year, but I didn’t make it there. Also, I wouldn’t have been there when the ...

Piston Slap: Sans Souci or Inquiétant Diagnostic?

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

The 2019 Handbuilt Show

Words by Justin Benson | Photography by Speedy Donahue Sometimes we revive old motorcycles, and sometimes they revive us. Every April for the last 6 years, Revival Cycles plays host to a moto gathering that quite literally brings one back to life. Scorn from long winters of blizzards, cars not starting, and frozen nether-regions, it’s the exact type of event to put fuel in our tanks, and melt the icicles off our dipstick. Let me tell you – this year’s show was no exception. The 747 steel bir...
