As the place where more cars are making their mark and showing up to debut what we’ll want to see on the market we’ve seen a ton of great supercars that have cross the stage in Geneva. Something has to be special for a relatively unknown name to make it to this show and be something we want to talk about and the Dendrobium from Vanda Electrics is a car that certainly gives us a great look and some impressive features that have made it worthy of at least one discussion.
If you receive an envelope in the mail that tells you that you at some point went through a toll without paying, make sure you pay the toll and the fees before they add up and become extremely high. For a simple small toll that might have added up to $2.00 when you went through it electronically, you could be charged several hundred dollars in fees the longer you allow the tolls to remain ignored and you could end up being arrested for the violation. Most of us are smart enough to know that we need to pay these fees before they add up, but one man decided that didn’t apply to him.
Some cars get old and go out of style but others are the cars you want to drive and enjoy every day. These special cars are the ones we restore, the ones we keep in pristine condition and the ones that we want to enjoy on those special days when it calls for something better to drive. Whether or not these cars are worth much on the market is irrelevant, the cars you want to drive that have come around recently can be the cars you want to keep on driving for the next several decades. Take a look at some of these instant timeless classics:
The typical EV model is right for you to enjoy the ride but comes in a typically small and impressive build that normally has an eye for added range from the aerodynamics and the style of the vehicle. With this limitation it becomes harder to believe that EV models could ever move beyond this and become powerful and efficient enough to be put in large SUV or pickup trucks for us to enjoy what these massive machines can give us when we want the right vehicle to drive for the work we have to get done.
As the story goes there are times when some cars offer us the performance we want and other cars let us down. If you start the tale with “once upon a time” but replace it with “there once was a car” you see how this could sound very much like a fairy tale. The reality is, there once was a car that was built so perfect it set top speed records that destroyed the competition by several mph and became one of the best performing cars on the road or track that we’ve ever seen.
While we tend to celebrate different automotive brands on a regular basis, the celebration of a company that offers the parts and features that make cars better and more enjoyable can be sometimes overlooked but not this time. When the name of the company is Mopar, which is a car customization company that’s been partnered with Dodge for many years, it’s time to celebrate. For the past 80 years Mopar has been offering the upgrades we love on our vehicles and has been a significant partner of the brands we know and trust for many years, making it an important part of our culture.
Cars can be fun to drive and they really should be at nearly every level of driving. The car that’s the poster child of fun is the Mazda MX-5 Miata but that’s not the only fun car on the road. There are other cars that are fun as well and can give you the ride you’re looking for when you need a bit of driving therapy. These cars aren’t the fastest on four wheels and they don’t come at a high price making them some of the best cars to drive when you want something active and fun that can give you the ride you’ve been after.
Do you know what the Redline is when it comes to GM? For many of us something in our life has been called the Redline whether it only indicates the position on the tachometer where the rpm are higher than they should be or you are a Hot Wheels fan that collects the oldest models of the brand. For GM the Redline was a name given to Saturn models when the brand was around which indicated a higher performing version of the vehicles in the lineup. Chevrolet has recently brought back the Redline moniker and put it on nine of the models to give you what you want.
While the VW brand is working toward the electrification of their lineup they can’t deny the success that’s been part of the US market for SUVs over the past several years. Because of this success the brand has redesigned and remade the Volkswagen Tiguan for 2018 and has recently shown it off at the North American International Auto Show. this new SUV is growing by being longer and more capable to attract a larger audience of shoppers that would love to have this SUV for their daily driving duties. This new version of the SUV will continue to make good use of the space and convenience offered while providing the performance agility and value we want to enjoy.
