A lot of history went down the year of the first Super Bowl, especially in the car industry.

Volkswagen’s suggested fixes for its 2.0 liter and 3.0 liter diesel vehicles fitted with emissions-cheating software keep getting rejected, and now the automaker has decided on a plan to buy back some of the effected models—but only the certified pre-owned vehicles currently in the Dieselgate sales-ban limbo on…
Hey, remember a few years back, Bose (the people normally known for speakers) came out with what seemed to be a magical old Lexus LS? The one with super smooth suspension that would never lean or roll, and could actually hop? We never really knew what happened to it, until now. And yeah, it’s probably for the exact…
I know we live in an era where companies want to get as much data out of us as possible, and normally the data they want has to do with our consuming habits. But not always.

At this point, who won’t be on the next Top Gear? (No one’s asked me. I can confirm that.)

It’s generally assumed that when you reach retirement age, life starts to slow down. But not for mechanics David Anderson and Mathew Hine, who spent six months upgrading a 10 MPH mobility scooter into a record breaking dragster that officially hit a top speed of 107.6 MPH.
