What's It Like To Teach And Learn In One Of The Best Auto Design…

I think almost every car-focused primate reading this has, at least once, wondered about what it's like to go to auto design school, both with awe (you just saw a vintage Alfa slink past) or disgust (there's an Aztek doing 25 in front of you). » 12/11/12 4:20pm 12/11/12 4:20pm

Fifteen Easy-To-Miss Details From The LA Auto Show

If you're around the LA area, they've probably finished fumigating the Staples center and doing extensive renovations on the bathrooms to get the auto-journalist stink out, making the LA Auto Show ready for the general public. » 12/03/12 5:20pm 12/03/12 5:20pm

The Telling Details of The LA Auto Show Gallery

First, let's just get this out of the way. This V8 micro-Beetle is likely the Best In Show of the Los Angeles International Auto Show. Incredible power-to-weight ratio, classic styling, and, because it doesn't look like there's any way to actually get in and drive it, infinite fuel economy and zero emissions, since I… » 12/03/12 2:08pm 12/03/12 2:08pm
