Our Favorite Design Features of the 2019 GMC Sierra

GMC's Sierra 1500 Denali is a top-of-the-line full-size pickup truck. It first caught our eye when GMC's designers came up with that crazy multifunctional tailgate. The truck isn't cheap; it's $67,000 and marketed as a luxury vehicle. Which begs the question: What is it like using this truck for actual work? I recently had the chance to find out, both because I now live on a farm and because GMC was willing to lend me the truck (as well as its more off-road minded stablemate, the Sierra 1500 AT4...

Uber finally made its debut Friday on the New York Stock Exchange, ending its decade-long journey from startup to publicly traded company.

Lamborghini Miura P400, Chassis #3586: The Italian Job Restored

Lamborghini Polo Storico has located and certified the Miura P400, chassis #3586. Keen eyes may recognize it as the original from the opening scenes of The Italian Job. Back in 1966, Lamborghini was a rather unimpressive sports car manufacturer from northern Italy. They were about as remarkable as De Tomaso or Bizzarrini. Interesting in some respects and horrid in others. That all changed at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show when Lambo rolled out the Miura. At a stroke, the upstart Italian car maker ...
