If your reoccurring nightmare ever actually comes true (that nightmare being, of course, traveling back in time and being forced to purchase a General Motors product during the company’s Roger Smith Era), don’t fret. Just buy a truck. 1980s-era Chevy and GMC pickups are awesome.

Behold one of the most fascinating and beautiful SUVs of all time: The International Harvester Scout-based Monteverdi Safari. It was essentially a Scout with a body built by Italian company Carrozzeria Fissore for the Swiss boutique automaker Monteverdi. The base and top-line engines were from Chrysler—a 318 V8 and a

This late 1960s Bedford Beagle wagon was built by British vehicle conversion company Dormobile (the coachbuilding arm of Martin Walter Ltd of Folkestone, Kent) using a Vauxhall Viva HA platform. During its production between ~1964 and ~1973, engine options were four cylinders with either 1057cc, 1159cc, or 1256cc, all

A company called Armbruster-Stageway out of Fort Smith, Arkansas has quite a long history of building funeral coaches and limos. Back in the ’70s, it built this 454 cubic-inch, fifteen-passenger monster Chevrolet Suburban. I love the look of all those doors.

Before the little rear-engine, air-cooled runabout that came to define Italy’s car culture for decades—the Fiat 500 “Nuova”—came onto the scene in the late 1950s, there was the Fiat 500 Topolino. This ~1951 Fiat 500C had a liquid-cooled 569cc inline-four mounted ahead of the front axle, and made only about 16

This is the thirteenth generation of the Chrysler New Yorker. Rest in peace the Chrysler New Yorker; long live the Chrysler New Yorker. The Fifth Avenue version was indeed a candy bar.

If you are going to buy a Rabbit Edition GTI, please get one in Cornflower Blue. We need more awesome colors on the road.

“How underrated is the Isuzu Trooper?” is a question I wake up in the middle of the night asking myself, usually in a thick sweat. These little boxy SUVs are so handsome, their interiors are basically perfect, they’ve got their spare tire in the right location, they offer amazing visibility and off-road capability,

My coworker Jason may have called the 2009 Kia Borrego a “Meh Car,” but I find the short-lived SUV quite interesting, with its body-on-frame construction, available 337 horsepower 4.6-liter V8 engine, three rows of seating, and styling that remains modern to this day.

I recently spotted a 1978 Chevy Blazer at a junkyard, and—amazed by its gorgeous red interior—had no choice but to snag one of its plaid seats for my Postal Jeep. Interestingly, the picture you see above is a part of a German 1978 brochure called “American Cars by General Motors.

The Blazer could go on land, it could go on water, it could go on Mars. Also, that’s a nice shade of yellow.

Some people think Ford’s short-lived Edsel brand of the late 1950s died off because the cars were ugly. And while that was likely a factor (I, for one, think the cars were gorgeous—including the 1958 model above, which is either a Pacer, Ranger, Citation or Corsair; It’s hard to tell those apart), Time Magazine wrote

A perfect 1937 Tatra T87 sits in Munich’s Pinakothek der Moderne art museum. As my coworker Jason has made abundantly clear, this Czech-built car should be revered for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the ~85 HP air cooled engine that was way ahead of its time mounted in the back, and the three

Back in 1957, if you wanted tons of interior space, you didn’t have to buy an SUV or a minivan. You could opt for this Chevrolet Bel Air Townsman, an inline six or V8 powered six-passenger station wagon that could be had with the silky smooth Turboglide transmission (a novel design consisting essentially of three
