The history of rapid-transit began 150 years ago, with the opening of the Metropolitan Railway in London in 1863. In the next century and a half, dozens of architects and engineers have worked on underground tunnels and stations. Some are abandoned now, but others are as good as new. Here are some of the most…
At the top of Goodwood is the rally paddock and a 2 minute, 20-second forest stage that I raced down in Ken Block's Ford Fiesta. It was awesome, but the moment I got out of Ken's car I ran straight to the Group B paddock and started begging for rides. I'm riding in a Group B if it's the last thing I do.
Group B rally cars like the Delta and Ford RS200 regularly sell for seven-figure prices. This MG Metro 6R4 is probably the worst Group B rally car ever, but because it's a Group B rally car you still want it.
Thanks to geography, Washington D.C.'s subway system has more escalators — 588 — than any other system in North America. Which also means D.C. has more broken escalators, such as this one that experienced runaway Toyota-itis last fall. H/T Demon-Xanth!
What did The General need most of all in the late 1980s? You got it, another marque! All those Suzukis and Toyotas being built in California and Ontario needed friendly Detroit-style badging, not to mention those Japan-built Isuzus.
Thanks to 25 MPG fuel economy and a $22K price, the Ford Transit Connect is being sold as an affordable, efficient commercial vehicle. Pshaw. The Metro-amino will get twice the mileage for a tenth of the price.
Generally, describing a car as an appliance is pejorative, indicating it is dull as dishwater. Today Nice Price or Crack Pipe brings you a car that's totally not boring, but does look an awful lot like a refrigerator.
The very nervous 3-cylinder engine found in the Chevrolet Sprint Turbo was part of the very successful and long-lived Suzuki G engine family.
Unless you put a CBR900RR engine in one, the '88 Geo Metro hatchback is a downright cute little gas sipper. It's tough to argue with 53 city MPG, though we remain skeptical about that figure.
You naysayers who want to claim that the Geo Metro is really a Suzuki can go away now, because we say a GM car- albeit a Honda-powered one- won this race! The rest of the GM field was far from Camaro-only, which is always good to see; nothing against Camaros, mind you, but they've been pretty numerous in LeMons events…
