This American's Rambling Days Are Over

Remember that Rambler engine block that was so much fun to identify last week? That wasn't the only shot I got of the Crusher-bound '64 Rambler American; in fact, that wrecking yard currently has two Ramblers (in the Ford section). This one still has plenty of good pieces (well, it had them last week, when I took these … » 6/10/08 6:20pm 6/10/08 6:20pm

Forgotten Brand, Forgotten Car: 1929 Oakland All-American Six

Toyota's As American As Apple Pie: So Sayeth the 'Today Show'

The 'Today Show' ran a nice little piece this morning on the "fact" that foreign automakers are just as "American" as can be — and yet again we're wondering if the mainstream media ever does their homework on these pieces or if they do — what's their litmus test for what makes a company "American." We feel like maybe…
