"Bring Back the Third Gen!"

 Any time discussion of the Third Gen Smif autoloaders comes up on social media, someone will pine for their reintroduction, but it's just not going to happen, at least on any large scale. Even if they still had the tooling (and I'm not entirely sure they do), the costs would be prohibitive. The 3rd Gen Smiths, even with every short cut they could try, were still more expensive to build than the classic P-series Sigs. And they were very well-built guns. The fit and finish on an early 5906 or 1...

GM's revival of the Hummer as an all-electric halo car is a stroke of marketing genius

The Hummer is back, this time as an all-electric mega-truck. GMC General Motors relaunched the controversial Hummer brand this past week, reviving a paramilitary nameplate once synonymous with testosterone swagger and defiant gas-guzzling, but as an all-electric pickup under GMC division. I begged GM to save Hummer back in 2008, lost the case, and was completely surprised when the brand staged a dramatic comeback with an entirely new mojo. GM isn't noted for brilliant marketing moves, but ...

White House staff, Secret Service eye virus with fear, anger

By JILL COLVIN, DEB RIECHMANN and COLLEEN LONG | Associated Press WASHINGTON — The West Wing is a ghost town. Staff members are scared of exposure.

Four Classic Prince Songs Re-Imagined as Pulp Fiction Covers: When Doves Cry, Little Red Corvette & More

There’s a book-lined Knowledge Room in the late Prince Rogers Nelson’s Paisley Park, but the Prince-inspired faux-books that artist Todd Alcott imagines are probably better suited to the estate's purple-lit Relaxation Room. The Knowledge Room was conceived of as a library where the world’s most famous convert to Jehovah’s Witnesses could delve into religious literature, reflect on the meaning of life, and study the Bible deep into the night. Alcott’s covers harken to an earlier stage in Prince’...

Less understandable, especially after last week, is why […] The post After Ford Bronco Reveal, Is GM Ablaze With Envy? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
