The Car Radio
  Seems like cars have always had radios, but they didn't.
One evening, in 1929, two young men named William Lear and Elmer Wavering drove their girlfriends to a lookout point high above the  Mississippi River town of Quincy, Illinois, to watch the sunset. It was a romantic night to be sure, but one of the women observed that it would be even nicer if they could listen to music in the car. Lear and Wavering liked the idea.

We drive the Ford F350 4WD King Ranch
  by Ali Arsham
The heavy duty diesel pick up market war has been going for many years now and I think it is safe to say that Ford has brought the biggest gun to the fight. Everyone talks about how their truck can haul the most but we wanted to see just how well the new Ford F350 can tow so we arranged a test to tow the biggest trailer that we could find to see the results.
We drive the 2015 Lincoln Navigator
  by Ali Arsham
A full size luxury SUV is probably the best vehicle for a long distance road trip and they don’t get much better than the Lincoln Navigator.  So when we had a 2015 Navigator show up, we had no choice but to drive it everywhere and see if the Navigator is as enjoyable as we remember it from its early days.
Porsche sports car concept: Mission E
  Electric Sports Car
This is what it might look like -- the Porsche of tomorrow. Porsche is presenting the "Mission E" concept car at the IAA in Frankfurt from 17 to 27 September. The concept car is a coherent design of a sports car with an electric drive and all of the traits that make up a Porsche. In the Mission E, an entirely new spread is experienced between performance and efficiency -- supplemented by a futuristic display and control concept. The joint premiere with the new generation 911 Carrera has symbolic character. The first all-electrically powered four-seat Porsche of the 21st century represents the future of a concept that made the 911 the most successful sports car ever for over 50 years.
We drive the Chevrolet Suburban LTZ 4WD
  by Ali Arsham
If your average SUV is not big enough for you, then you are in need of a Chevrolet Suburban.  The Suburban has been around for 80 years now and is in its 12th generation.  Of course today’s version has little in common with the first one and the first one certainly did not have features like 4G connectivity and six USB ports but the new one does.  After spending some time with the giant SUV, we found that the unique combination of space, luxury and capability is very useful. 
Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
  and Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance presented by Rolex
It was a Globally Renowned Tribute To Automotive Splendour. Staged on the scenic fairway of the 18th hole of the Pebble Beach Golf Links, the grand finale of the Monterey Classic Car Week the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, saw a bumper entry of 200 premium collector’s cars today.
Sun-Drenched Tour Brings Smiles To Thousands
  Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
As the epic annual Monterey Classic Car Week continues to grow and grow, so too does one of its central events, the Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance presented by Rolex. In the 2015 event, which was blessed by the best Californian weather in recent years, nearly 200 cars with a value collectively running into the many hundreds of millions of dollars, ran the non-competitive tour of 80 miles (129 kilometers), to the mass approval of huge crowds.
We drive the 2015 Ford F150 XLT 4x4
  by Ali Arsham
Ford takes it trucks very seriously.  Without the F150, the company would be in a different place today so every time the F150 is being redesigned, it is done with a lot of research and analysis.  The new F150 has been tested probably more than any other recent Ford.  Before the 2015 F-150 went on sale, it will have been torture-tested in labs, at Ford proving grounds and in the hands of some of Ford’s most demanding truck customers for more than 10 million miles. The grueling testing simulates the demands Ford customers will subject the truck to throughout its average lifetime.
Ferrari 488 Spider drops its top before Frankfurt
  Official unveiling scheduled for Frankfurt Motor Show
Ferrari announces the launch of the 488 Spider, its most powerful ever mid-rear-engined V8 car to feature the patented retractable hard top along with the highest level of technological innovation and with cutting-edge design. Ferrari was the first manufacturer to introduce the RHT (Retractable Hard Top) on a car of this particular architecture. This solution ensures lower weight (-25 kg) and better cockpit comfort compared to the classic fabric soft-top.

There is a new work truck in town and it is a good one.  Ram is now selling its brand new ProMaster City.  The vehicle is aimed at contractors, plumbers, delivery people and others who need to haul stuff around the city.  It is designed to be an affordable option for people who need such a vehicle and it is brilliant/
We drive the Lexus LS460 F Sport
  by Ali Arsham
The Lexus LS was one of those game changing cars when it first arrived in 1991.  The original car was initiated by the Toyota chairman himself to be a luxury sedan to beat the best from Europe.  The engineers were told not to use any existing Toyota platforms or engines in their designs and what they came out had to beat out their targets and it did.
