2019 Nissan Sentra US Pricing and Specs

As one of the cheapest cars in America, the Nissan Sentra has always been very low on the desirability charts. But that is not the case with the latest, 2019 Nissan Sentra. Granted, it still does not look particularly amazing, but it’s a feature-rich car and offers excellent value for money.  With a base MSRP of $17,790, the 2019 Nissan Sentra seems to be a compelling choice for female drivers or college students of both genders who want an affordable, reliable and well-equipped first car.

RV Camping in Seward, NE

After reluctantly leaving the East Sutherland WMA ( it was such a nice spot), I explored other WMAs as I headed east on I-80 and parallel county roads.Didn't find any, among the four I checked, that compared to East Sutherland and one apparently didn't exist as I ended up intruding on private property.  Probably the way the Waze GPS app routed me but there you go.So I drove on, through a pretty heavy rain storm which washed away the dust accumulated on the vehicles while exploring WMAs but soaki...

Concept Cars That Never Made It: Vol. 1

Concept Cars That Never Made It is a five-part series that documents production concept automobiles from years and eras ago. Some are bewildering, while others are beautiful, and the only thing common between them is the fact that somewhere down the line, these concepts remained just figments of imagination and creative spirit, and never saw the light of day.Bertone Lancia Stratos HF Zero (1970) Probably the most fitting concept to begin this series with, the Lancia Stratos Zero was debuted for ...

50th Anniversary Mustang Cobra Jet Revealed – Mid-8 1/4 Mile

If you have a hard time deciphering the title, that means the new 2019 50th Anniversary Mustang Cobra Jet does the quarter-mile in the mid-eight-second range. The turnkey racer, as its name clearly suggests, pays homage to the original Cobra Jet made in 1968.  As you would expect from something called the Cobra Jet, this super special Mustang has some beefy specs. The engine powering this wild pony is a 5.2-liter version of the V8 you find in the GT Mustang, boosted with a man-sized 3.0 lite...

Caffè Nero: Lossa Engineering’s Ducati 900SS

Jay LaRossa is one of those guys who was probably born with copper grease under his fingernails. His parents ran motorcycle dealerships, and as a kid he spent his weekends at racetracks and motor shows. After a stint building hot rods and custom trucks for export around the world, Jay returned to his first love: two wheels. Since 2007 he’s been running Lossa Engineering in Signal Hill, California—and carving out a rep for fast, focused customs designed more for performance than posing. Like t...

Extreme Machine: Unscrambling the Triumph Scrambler

Scramblers are still very much on trend—and the Triumph Scrambler is one of the coolest examples of the breed. But when Justin Webster got his hands on one, he saw potential for something much wilder. He’s effectively unscrambled this Scrambler 900, transforming it into a tire-shredding, street tracker-styled liter bike—with a touch of cafe racer flair. And it’s such a coherent build, it could easily be mistaken for an OEM concept. Justin runs J. Webster Designs as a one-man-band out of Ga...

Polestar Launches Software Upgrade for All-Wheel-Drive Volvos

Pope Francis Gets a Fleet of Skoda Rapids for His Visit to Ireland

Skoda has secured the rights to provide the transportation for Pope Francis and his entourage during the Papal visit to Ireland this month. They have dispatched four Rapids, including a especially modified one for His Highness with the registration number 182-D-9093. Get it? Didn’t get it? Well, 9093 spells POPE when inverted. What do you think Pope Francis will think of that? Will he be like “Dude, it’s so dopeeee.” Or, more likely, he won’t even notice it? In any case, it’s a nice gesture ...

The latest Mercedes-AMG model to get a proper upgrade treatment from Brabus is their baby SUV, the GLC 63. The compact utility vehicle is christened Brabus GLC 600 by the German tuner, and as always the number in the name hints at the kind of power you can expect form it.  Based on the S version of the AMG car, the Brabus GLC 600 takes a stock 510 horsepower V8 engine and through a series of electronic upgrades, which also eliminates the top speed limiter of the standard car, takes that powe...
