Hiking the dunes of the Great Sand Dunes National Park

 Well, I got my exercise today, I elected to try and climb the dunes more to the north side of the Great Sand Dunes, away from the maddening crowds along the southern edge of the dunes.It was mid-morning by the time things had warmed up enough but not too much to allow me to do the hiking in relative temperature comfort.  The light however, was very flat.  Sorry.I tried to reach one peak first, found my way barred by very steep sloping sand and instead wandered further north, traversing dunes ti...

Automakers notch sales bounce a year after COVID-19 onset

Automakers posted higher sales in the first quarter as General Motors Co., Toyota Motor Corp. and others benefited from strong demand for new cars and trucks in comparison with a year earlier, when the spread of Covid-19 shut showrooms. U.S. auto sales surged by more than 8% in the quarter, according to analysts’ estimates. The gain reflects buying as vaccination rates increase and more people return to their pre-pandemic routines. Increased confidence in the economy and worry about lower suppli...

Barrett-Jackson VIN 001s Boost Auction Results

VIN 001s are a rarity few can appreciate, let alone afford. Barrett-Jackson, auctioneers with aplomb, moved a handful of them last weekend at their auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. Who can afford a VIN 001 is less important than why. After all, VIN 002 and any produced thereafter are the same. Will VIN 001 produce a […] The post Barrett-Jackson VIN 001s Boost Auction Results appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

How Audi’s New Hotel Deal Might Replace the Dealership Test Drive

One of the many challenges facing automakers right now is acquainting potential buyers with the experience of driving or riding in their newest models. As early as 2014, a third of car buyers test drove only one model, and 17% skipped the test drive completely. With the pandemic having restricted the availability of many showrooms...

Monte Carlo surfaced again more recently, as its Nineties iteration was effectively a renamed second-generation Lumina coupe. But we’ve never covered the Eighties Monte Carlo, which was a very popular car in the midsize segment at a time […] The post Rare Rides: A Pristine Chevrolet Monte Carlo From 1987, Mid-market Personal Luxury appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

History repeats itself: A Canadian XR750 returns home

Most of the customs we drool over on these pages have little or no history. They’re usually modified after a few mundane years of weekend riding—or transported straight from the showroom floor to the workshop, in the back of a van. Occasionally, though, we happen across a machine with a decades-long backstory. Like this street legal Harley XR750 tracker from Quebec, Canada, which houses a tuned Sportster engine in an XR750 frame. Builder Costa Mouzouris originally created the street tracke...

In the Future, Will Car Dealerships Exist?

Car dealerships are a conundrum. For decades, they’ve prevailed despite changes in every aspect of what occurs at a new car dealership. The big question is whether they will continue doing business as they have, or will there be changes to a system that’s out of touch with buyers today? How new cars are bought […] The post In the Future, Will Car Dealerships Exist? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
