In short, that angular, glowing thing you see in your rearview mirror? It might just be a McLaren 720S GT3X. And it might just eat you for l...

New Shoes for Mariko

Sunday, March 21I went to do the daily fluid checks on Mariko after breakfast and found this: Dammit.So I broke out the bottle jack, raised her up and swapped in the spare tire.  Here's what I found in terms of puncture cause: I ended up pulling out a spine almost as long as the big one in the picture above, same cluster of spines. Spare tire in place, yep that's a white wheel...all the others are black, makes me think the white one was original wheel. I aired up the punctured tire, sp...

Blue Thunder: Finally, someone scrambles the TTR250

I just did a quick check, and my suspicions were confirmed: we’ve never featured a Yamaha TTR250 build on EXIF. Which is a bit of a surprise, because the TTR250 is one of the toughest off roaders around. In the mid 90s, the little Yammie was the first mainstream trailie to feature an electric start—and punched way above its weight. Honda’s excellent XR250 was direct competition, but the Yamaha won a lot of fans for its convenience and good manners. Around my neck of the woods, you often ...

2020 Jeep Cherokee Limited Review – Moving in Anonymity

Before I became an automotive journalist, I wanted to write about sports.

This is because it’s generally more interesting to write about […] The post 2020 Jeep Cherokee Limited Review – Moving in Anonymity appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
