Recovery gear for Mariko and more Maintenance

 Since Mariko, my '87 Suzuki Samurai 4x4 weighs almost 2100 lbs dry....it takes a lot more in terms of equipment to do jobs like raising her to change a tire, or straps and shackles to pull her out of loose sand and just gear to do tire repairs!Note: Still, she basically weighs a bit over One Ton!  Light for a four wheeled vehicle!  One Smittybilt 2780 Air compressor rated for 2.54 CFM to air up the tires after leaving terrain where I decided to air down the tires for better traction.  I like th...

Tesla Self-Driving and Unintended Acceleration Not The Same Says NHTSA

Tesla vehicles that drive themselves and those that continue unintentionally are not the same, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Extra Crunch roundup: 2 VC surveys, Tesla’s melt up, The Roblox Gambit, more

This has been quite a week. Instead of walking backward through the last few days of chaos and uncertainty, here are three good things that happened: Google employee Sara Robinson combined her interest in machine learning and baking to create AI-generated hybrid treats. A breakthrough could make water desalination 30%-40% more effective. Bianca Smith will become the first Black woman to coach a professional baseball team.

Rare Rides: The 1992 Daihatsu Leeza Spider, It’s Tearing Me Apart

Oh hi, Mark. Today’s Rare Ride is a very rare version of Daihatsu’s Leeza Kei car. It’s tiny, turbocharged, and one of only 200 made. No more The Room jokes, I promise. Daihatsu launched its Leeza in 1986, as the second model entrant in its contemporary kei car lineup. Prior, Daihatsu had offered only one Kei at […] The post Rare Rides: The 1992 Daihatsu Leeza Spider, It’s Tearing Me Apart appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Hindsight is 2020: A Tough Year for Car Sales

  To say the American auto industry faced challenges in 2020 is on par with saying the Pontiac Aztek was only a little bit ahead of its time. Or that Carlos Ghosn is only slightly irritated at some of his former Nissan colleagues. Predictions of how each company (and the market as a whole) would […] The post Hindsight is 2020: A Tough Year for Car Sales appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

What is up with Tesla’s value?

The last year taught us that the connection between the stock market and the economy is imprecise at best. Despite some useful commentary underscoring the two are at least somewhat linked, it’s clear that many Americans can lose their jobs and financial security at the same time that stocks can keep on rising like the boom times will never end. It seems that today’s market is willing to value stocks not on their past performance, current performance or analyst-expected future performanc...

Check Out This Crazy Yamaha ‘Scooter’ Concept

What Am I Looking At? Although this Yamaha F155 concept is being marketed as a scooter, it might be the coolest looking scooter/bike hybrid I’ve ever seen. Yamaha unveiled this crazy concept today and it’s too cool not to share. Yamaha turned the spotlight onto this scooter following the Exciter 155 unveiling. The scooter borrows its 155cc powerplant from the R15, and instead of traditional CVT scooter philosophy, Yamaha has decided to throw a geared transmission into this little beast to make...

The Honda CB350 is Already Seeing A Price Increase

More Expensive Than The Meteor 350 The Honda H’Ness CB350 had a highly successful launch a few months ago when it was introduced to the market as a direct competitor to the Royal Enfield Meteor 350. The launch was actually so successful that Honda managed to move 1000 units in less than a month, but now that sales figures are soaring sky-high, Honda has decided a price hike is in the cards for this low-displacement retro-inspired motorcycle; and that will apply to both model variants (the DLX a...

Clevere Kommission: Kingston’s CB650R street tracker

The Honda CB650R has a lot going for it. The middleweight roadster is easy to ride and well made, and it comes with decent suspension and a 94 hp inline four. It also has some of the best exhaust pipework of any showroom-stock bike. This modern CB doesn’t, however, get the love that the older CBs have attracted in the custom scene—or the attention lavished on less elegant rivals such as the Yamaha MT-07. And that’s a shame, given the strength of the underlying mechanicals. This might be ab...

Apple's 'Tesla killer' self-driving car is at least 5 years away, according to a new report

Tesla CEO Elon Musk, left, and Apple CEO Tim Cook, right. Brendan Smialowski/AFP, Richard Drew/Associated Press Apple is long-rumored to be years into development of its own self-driving cars.

Tesla has decided to sell the cheaper Model Y standard range after all

Tesla has started taking orders for a cheaper standard range version of the Model Y in an apparent reversal by CEO Elon Musk who earlier this year seemed to put plans to release the vehicle on hold.  Electrek was the first to report that Tesla had updated its website to include the Model Y standard range, which will start at $41,990. That’s nearly $9,000 cheaper than the long range version that is currently sold by Tesla. The model Y standard range is a rear-wheel drive while the long range a...
