We’ve covered the Woodward Dream Cruise, the enormous annual car show on Michigan’s M-1, in the past. But as good as that event is, even a standard run-of-the-mill Saturday on the iconic road is heaven on Earth for us Jalops. Here’s what I saw yesterday morning.
Edsel Ford II, great-grandson of Henry Ford and a member of Ford Motor Company’s executive board, was arrested due to accusations of domestic abuse last night and spent the night in custody, multiple outlets report. Ford was later released with no charges filed after his scheduled arraignment this morning.
I’m at Lingenfelter’s shop in Wixom, Michigan for a cars and coffee. Come walk around with me and check out some awesome cars.
Here’s a different kind of distracted driving: Michigan state police say a Detroit driver fatally crashed while watching porn on his phone. The unnamed driver was ejected from the sunroof of his 1996 Toyota Corolla. He was not wearing his seatbelt, nor pants, police said.
Kids in Detroit are taught to hustle as early as elementary school. There is a company in metro Detroit called Morley Candy Company. The candy company offers schools across the state, but especially in Detroit, opportunities for fundraisers by selling chocolate bars, truffles, summer sausage, and other seasonal…
As a car enthusiast, I live on Craigslist. I’m always looking out for great deals on cool cars. I’m an addict. But in spite of what we recently decided on Answers of the Day, I think Michigan might be the single worst place to buy a used car on Craigslist. Here’s why.
Usually when you wanna do a vehicle wrap, you start off with a dark finish. Black, grey—-something that won’t pop out at you when you change the main color.
Good news, citizen! Remember how we all were sad with the news that the trusty work horse that is the Ford Crown Victoria was ceasing production? Worry no more, as Detroit has a new plan to keep their cruisers-a-cruisin’.
In some parts of the country, like California, the really hot and cold states, or Michigan, you may just get lucky when you’re out driving and spot a mule. Most of the time they’re pretty boring — new sedans, new trucks, new crossovers, etc. I saw a Bentley Bentayga mule on may way to San Francisco last week. But one…
The retrofuturism movement among American car companies in the early 2000s spawned some truly awful looking cars, chief among them was of course the Chrysler PT Cruiser. The PT Cruiser, and by extension the Chevy HHR, became the wayback machines of choice for boomers desperately looking for any way to relive their…
While my fancypants colleagues were in Monterey wearing boat shoes and pastel colors, I was hanging out near Detroit at a real car show: The Woodward Dream Cruise. And boy were there some amazing cars rolling up and down Michigan’s Highway One.
So you’ve got a tiger loose in your local abandoned auto plant. Who you gonna call? Detroit area bus driver Andy Didorosi, obviously. He’s my buddy, I just called and had him walk me through what happened.
The Detroit People Mover, a monorail forming a 2.9-mile, 13-stop clockwise loop around downtown Detroit, is Michigan’s longest municipal rail system.
I finally got in to see the pride of Detroit city’s auto manufacturing facility.
A worker was crushed to death in the wastewater treatment section of Chrysler’s Jefferson North Assembly plant in Detroit, according to local CBS affiliate WWJ. A company spokesperson confirmed the incident, though specific details of the incident are as of yet unclear.
Jerome Robinson only got to live in the home of his dreams for five years before he was told to leave.
Blue Ridge Parkway. Tail of the Dragon. Mardi Gras (on accident?!?). Hail, Snow, Rain, and Sleet. Texas BBQ. Dinner on the Pacific in Mission Bay. And that was just the first three days.Duluth.
Been waiting to get some more time with this sweet ride ever since the press drive way back in August. My tester is a fully loaded premium model and it's powered by the 2.0T motor, good for 272hp going to the rear wheels as the auto gods intended.
Alright, alright. I will concede that this Detroit show proved me wrong, that it was one of the best in recent memory—simply because it was full of surprises, or at least the kind of surprise that happens when you stop paying attention and forego the rumors.
