    BBC Documentary - Das Auto The Germans Their Cars and Us

    Excellent documentary which I just finished watching on BBC World - it discusses the rise and eventual domination by the German car manufacturers and also compares their success to the British automotive industry's hardships, especially in the 70s. Very interesting video, I appreciate its...

    Are Subaru motoring enthusiasts a bit daft?

    I'm only asking because I was on an auto blogging site, where spy shots of an upcoming STI were discussed, and I was entertaining by how idiotic the arguments and immaturity were.

    Does GM have too many brands that create confusion?

    Okay I may not know the markets inside out like a dedicated automotive analyst does, but I'm perplexed that GM has this mash of Holden/Opel/Vauxhall/Buck rebadging thing going on. Does it not take away from the value of the brand as far as its global recognition is concerned? Recent Opel failure...

They proceeded to roll the car backwards (engine was never started) from the driveway...

    I like the new Top Gear fans!

    The newest fans of Top Gear are nicest of the bunch since they are way less judgmental, less likely to be motoring enthusiasts with die-hard loyalty to a WRX, are less cynical, probably richer and would be a lot more fun to go to a bar with. I only mention this because I came across a year old...

    Cash for Clunkers is nonsense

    1) They are punishing good people who drive older, but yet fuel efficient cars such as a Ford Contour, Cavalier, or Camry. And at same time they are rewarding those who purchased a gas guzzler. 2) What is wrong with clunkers? They are functional vehicles which serve a purpose, provide utility...

    Is food in EU healthier than US

    Here we have insane subsidies to corn industry; and of course for anyone who has studied health in depth, it'll come no surprise that corn syrup, which is derived from corn, trickles its way down to pop, meats, ketchup, and other common products. Problem is that high fructose syrup isn't good...
