UTB: Factory Butte SRMA while doing a Recce

After an unusual productive day at work, I left a bit early to run down towards Hanksville, UT to gas up, get some more groceries and do a little recon of possible boondocking sites to the west of Hanksville along UT24.  We did have a pretty good sunrise Uma, the URRV, was out of position for the sunrise,  but her window captured it just fine. Once I got to Hankville, I filled up and then continued west towards the last location I'd stayed near when I towed Scarlett with Martha's Bim...

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Sets Nurburgring Lap Time: 6:56.4

Well, it’s official now. The new 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS has set an official Nurburgring lap record, and it’s a quick one, predictably. That’s impressive, but not surprising. What is surprising though is the fact that the new time is a full 24 seconds faster than that of the old GT3 RS.  That is a huge margin and shows how much better, at least performance-wise the new model is. 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is powered by a 520 horsepower version of the superb naturally aspirated 4.0 liter flat-si...

2019 Corvette ZR1 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Unveiled

No car in history has had more Indy 500 pace car gigs as the Corvette. So naturally when it came to choosing a version for the 102nd edition of the big race, Chevy picked the top dog – the 2019 Corvette ZR1. The 755 horsepower super car will be the fastest pace car Indianapolis 500 has ever seen.  The ‘Vette should also appeal to the typical Indy 500 fan aesthetically, what with its ginormous wing and large intakes. The car is an engineering marvel though, boasting a 6.2L supercharged V-8 (L...

But they’ve attracted the attention of the manufacturers, and Yamaha has now commissioned a pair of Yard Built customs based on the XSR900—and for good measure, a third prototype built around a 1976 XS750 [...

New Study: Pet Owners Worry About Safety, Can Automakers Respond?

Here at this publication, we love animals as much as we love cars. However, a new study from Volvo found some pet owners are hesitant to take a road trip with their best friend. Volvo Reports: Dogs, Cars and the People Who Love Them was recently conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of Volvo among 2,000 U.S. adults ages 18 and above, including 1,342 pet owners. “Our survey showed that pet parents want to travel with their furry friends, but worry about safety,” explained Jim Nichols, Product...

Four-Links – the Downsizing Decision, Ed Welburn, ATCC Mustangs, diner moves

Image courtesy OldCarBrochures. What went behind the decision to downsize pretty much every American automobile in the late 1970s and early 1980s? A May 1980 New Yorker article that Curbside Classic recently dug up goes beyond the basic one-word answer with interviews with the people who made those decisions. NPR recently carried a profile of Ed Welburn, who retired this year as GM’s vice president of global design, and who knew for sure he wanted to be a car designer after seeing the Cadillac...

G-Power BMW M2 Packs 500 Horsepower

G-Power waited for BMW to reveal their M2 Competition with 410 horsepower to release their own upgrade kit for the sports car and kind of embarrass them. G-Power BMW M2 has a nice and round 500 horsepower. It also looks better, at least his eye-popping matte green color.  So if you can’t wait for the Competition, you can get yourself a nice used M2 and have it tuned by G-Power.

2018.5 Nissan Rogue Sport Gets Advanced Safety Kit

The mid-year upgrade for the popular crossover Nissan Rogue Sport has given a significant safety tech upgrade. This version of the Rogue now comes as standard with Auto Emergency Braking (AEB), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), plus Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), making it really hard to crash this thing.  Not that people won’t find a way to get into accidents in spite of all the tech.
