Automoblog Book Garage: The Collector Car Hobby by Richard Reina

If you grew up as I did, you probably had a number of car posters on your wall. We used to have these book fair events at our school a couple of times a year. My father would give me extra scratch so I could pick out different car and truck books. Those books usually had a tear-out poster or two in them of something I wanted to drive when I grew up. Eclipses & Tornadoes My coming of age was in an automotive era where cars like the Dodge Viper, BMW M Roadster, and the Acura Integra Type ...

2020 Dodge Durango SRT 392 Review – Loud, Crude, Large, Americana

There’s a stereotype of the American tourist in Europe being loud, brash, crude, and rude – all while being what doctors would call “overweight.” It’s a popular trope to be mocked in pop culture – The Simpsons, Family Guy, and others have done it many, many times. I’m pretty sure both those two animated shows […] The post 2020 Dodge Durango SRT 392 Review – Loud, Crude, Large, Americana appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

GM Says No Haggling on Hummers

With the Hummer EV Edition 1 selling out over what would constitute an extended lunch break, General Motors is clearly aware it has a hot commodity on its hands.

Junkyard Find: 1973 Dodge Dart Swinger

Blinged-up personal luxury coupes based on big land yachts and cushy midsize cars printed money for Detroit during the mid-to-late 1960s, and so it made sense to extend the treatment to the lower reaches of the model range. Eventually, Chrysler took two-door hardtop versions of the Plymouth Valiant and Dodge Dart, made some comfort and […] The post Junkyard Find: 1973 Dodge Dart Swinger appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Dodge’s New Ad Is a Perfect Prequel to Talladega Nights

Whicker: NBA bubble has worked – let’s not do it again

The NBA bubble has four to seven games left. If there is any mercy left in this world, it will permanently burst. It’s fine to congratulate the NBA and NHL for determining real champions in an unreal time, but let’s not forget the deadly circumstances that led us there. For more than 200,000 grieving American families and thousands more COVID-19 victims whose hearts, minds and limbs are still not quite right, this year of hell is not softened by a trophy presentation. And whenever the Lakers get...

2021 Dodge Durango: Quick Pricing & Trim Level Guide

The 2021 Dodge Durango remains part of the third-gen model we first saw in 2011.

Five Points On The Federal Officers In Portland — And, Maybe Soon, A City Near You

Anonymous federal forces are occupying Oregon’s largest city against the wishes of local officials. They’ve snatched people off the street and shoved them into unmarked cars, beaten peaceful demonstrators and filled Portland with the haze of tear gas. And now, senior Trump administration figures are making noise about taking the Portland show on a national tour — a menacing and confusing display of federal force just months before Election Day. Here’s what we know about the federal presence i...

Office rental startup Knotel bragged it was a nearly-profitable, anti-WeWork. Now lawsuits are stacking up. 12 insiders reveal what happened to the $400 million Knotel said it raised last year.

Knotel cofounder Amol Sarva had been vocal about his ambitions to overtake rival WeWork. Right after WeWork filed to go public last August, Knotel said it raised a $400 million Series C. But much of that money had strings attached to the lead investor, Kuwait's sovereign wealth fund, in an unusual deal structure.  Some Knotel vendors and landlords claim they haven't been paid for months, and lawsuits for unpaid rent are starting to stack up.  Knotel declined to comment, and Wafra did not respo...
