A Michigan lobbyist is trying to prevent the release of his emails that pertain to the state’s anti-Tesla law, passed in 2014 by purported free-market capitalists who, coincidentally, received a significant chunk of campaign money from the auto dealers who supported the legislation. The lobbyist says he has already…
Students at the University of Michigan this fall will be the first ever to go to a school with a driverless bus system.
A class-action lawsuit alleges the state of Michigan traps its poorest citizens in poverty by suspending their licenses when they can’t pay traffic fines or fees. And it’s a perfect example as to why the law stipulating regressive fees should be reconsidered.
The only things colder than Michigan in January are the heartless police officers who have been ticketing people for warming up cars in their own damn driveways. But now the Michigan House of Representatives is trying to put a stop to this nonsense, the Detroit Free Press reports. Thank god.
Michigan has some of the fastest-driving traffic I have ever seen in America, and now some of its speed limits are rising to reflect it.

Michigan is cold as all hell. And if you’ve got an older vehicle that doesn’t have a remote start feature, and you don’t feel like freezing your butt off in a frostbite-inducing interior, the traditional solution is to quickly start your car up, and leave it idling for a bit.

Michigan is cold as hell. It’s colder than hell. Michigan is where icy, frozen hell goes to cool off.

Someone revved the living crap out of a Ford GT race car at the Concours d’Elegance of America, and I was right there behind the exhaust pipe recording while simultaneously having an eargasm. Prepare to hear the most beautiful sound that has ever entered your cochleas.
