2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe

Mick Jagger's CarBy Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the December 2016 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

When the Cadillac CTS-V made its debut in 2004, the idea of a finely honed high-performance Cadillac sedan was pretty audacious. Now, little more than a decade later, racy Cadillacs are accepted, perhaps even expected, by driving enthusiasts.

1987-91 Ford Tempo All Wheel Drive

Ford Tempo All Wheel Drive

Cheap Wheelsby Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the December 2016 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

The Tempo was an overlooked Ford sales success of the Eighties. Introduced as a 1984 model in two- and four-door varieties, Tempo wore the Blue Oval’s then-trendsetting aerodynamic “jellybean” styling pioneered on the 1983 Thunderbird. The front-wheel-drive chassis shared some elements with the U.S.-market Escort, but rode a longer 99.9-inch wheelbase. Tempos ran a “new” 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that was a descendant of the Sixties-era Falcon inline six.
