More four-wheeling explorations and a hike to Council Rocks

Very nice and warm day today, very little wind and sunny skies....and tomorrow is supposed to be warmer.  Finally some warm weather.After breakfast it was time to do what I thought would be light four-wheeling up a road I'd spotted on google maps using the satellite view.  It would prove the narrow ledge road I can see from the camp that goes up the side of a nearby mountain.  Needless to say, I didn't get very far even with 4 Low, it's the first time I'd managed to stall Mariko while using 4 Lo...

Is “Project Trinity” the Future of Volkswagen? A Quick Look at VW’s Electrified & Autonomous Sedan

VW has provided the first design preview of Project Trinity. It’s not much of a “sneak peek” at the moment, just the silhouette photo above. Although, if all goes according to plan, Project Trinity may well set the tone for the automaker’s product lines and business models going forward. In terms of Project Trinity as a standalone entity, it will be an electric sedan with autonomous capabilities as high as Level 4.

California might be the first state to give self-driving cars a deadline to electrify. In mid-February, a bill was quietly introduced into the California State Legislature that would require all autonomous vehicles to also be zero emission by 2025.

Who Dares Wins: Upcycle Customizes the Ducati 998

There are a few motorcycles in Ducati’s back catalog that would ruffle feathers if they were customized. Depending on how much of a purist you are, the 998 might just be one of them. It was the last model to carry the iconic 916’s aesthetic, but was powered by Ducati’s new, and much improved, Testastretta motor—making it kind of special. Johhny Nguyen isn’t too fussed though. He’s a relatively young custom builder with a sharp eye and penchant for urban style, and isn’t afraid to buck traditi...
