1982 Imperial coupe

There are few automobiles to which more “firsts” and “lasts” can be awarded than the 1981-1983 Imperial.

1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS

1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS

As a contemporary homage to the classic muscle car, the 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS followed the letter of the law, if not the spirit. The Monte SS was indeed a midsize car crammed full of big-car engine, but by ’87, “big-car” engines just weren’t what they used to be.

2018 Toyota Yaris iA

The following article, written by Consumer Guide Publisher Tom Appel, first appeared in the “2018 Chicago Auto Show Official Show Guide.” Thanks to the Chicago Automobile Trade Association, producers of the Chicago Auto Show, for allowing us to share the text again here. 

Thanks to easy access to ridesharing services such as Uber, Lyft, and Wingz, many urban dwellers have found that they can live free of the complications and costs of car ownership. On the occasion that short-hop transportation is needed, these car-free bon vivants turn to a smartphone app and order up a quick ride. Other times, public transportation suffices.

New Car Colors

Check out our gallery of the most eye-catching colors at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.

There’s no better place than an auto show to see a broad range of brand-new vehicles up close, and there’s also no better place to check out the latest trends in factory paint-color offerings. One of our Chicago Auto Show traditions is to scour the show floor on the hunt for interesting new or recently introduced colors—“double-take” hues that are more eye-catching that the usual whites, silvers, blacks, and grays (and, for that matter, straightforward fire-engine reds).

1978 Oldsmobile Aeroback, General Motors Aerobacks

1978 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon Brougham

It’s a popularly held position that General Motors doesn’t take enough styling chances—or at least it historically hasn’t. I would argue that there are plenty of Eighties and Nineties examples of rather sterile looking GM vehicles that support this point, but a slate of inoffensive Cieras, Malibus, and Skyhawks hardly tells the whole story. General Motors has, in fact, taken many styling chances over the years–though the results weren’t always positive.
