A Look Back at Mazda MX-5 Miata at SEMA

The past two SEMA shows have been the hotbeds for Mazda to show off some of what it can do to create the impressive performance that’s needed when you have one of the most fun cars to drive with the low power numbers of the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

2017 Fiat 500X: The Bigger Model that Fits In

2017 Fiat 500X: a bigger model that fits in.

For many automakers the challenge of entering the subcompact crossover SUV market is a movement toward creating smaller vehicles that can fit into this category. For most of them this means packing the features offered on larger models into a smaller and more cramped area. The opposite challenge presented itself to Fiat when it chose to make the 500X.  As the largest Fiat personal vehicle on the road, the Fiat 500X offers you more space and room for the equipment that has been added on, which can’t be found on any other Fiat model you’ve seen. This is certainly a different direction than the other automakers and it seems to have worked out extremely well.

05.31.17 - Ford Mustang SVT Cobra

Whether you think a copycat of something else is annoying or want to find out if the new version is actually better than the previous one the curiosity might get the better of you.

Movies aren’t the only place where we see things copied in an effort to have more technology than before. Even the more powerful versions of the cars we love have been repeated and copied over time.

How Desperate do You Have to Be?

05.25.17 - South Dakota Police

The news has been filled for the past year or more with police officers that people felt were in the wrong because of actions caught on tape and released in a skewed sense of the actual events. Too often we’ve been shown videos that didn’t begin when the criminal was taking actions of their own, only when a friend or relative of the criminal felt it was right for them to try and show us a darker side of law enforcement. Even with this skewed view, the men and women in blue still try and serve and protect us to the best of their ability.
