What does it say about a movie if the best thing about it was a custom truck?

1988 Cutlass Supreme Pace Car

Fifty of these Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme pace cars were built for 1988, all of which were recalled due to failures related to a lack of structural rigidity. Cutlass Supreme convertibles were reintroduced for 1990, this time with a “basket-handle” brace fixed just aft of the door openings.

I’m pretty good at remembering the cars and trucks made available for sale in the U.S. over the past four decades. I remember well the short-lived (Stateside) Rover 3500, and even spent time in an International Scout Diesel, but what I often forget are the convertible versions of certain vehicles.

2020 Ford Bronco

The 2020 Ford Bronco would be based on the Australian-designed Ford Everest seen here. Bronco would be built in Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant alongside the coming Ford Ranger.

Future CarEnmeshed in the news that Ford is moving to reenter the small/midsize-pickup segment in the U.S. with an updated version of the Ranger is word that an off-road-ready SUV built on the same architecture would likely follow.

Hybrid Badges

There are more than 40 different Hybrid models available for sale in the U.S., and each of them behaves a little differently than you might expect.

As much as manufacturers of Hybrids strive to make them “feel” like normal gas-powered cars, most drivers will notice some differences – and not all from behind the wheel. Note that not all Hybrids are created equal, so some may not exhibit all of the traits mentioned.

The diet is going well, thanks for asking. But even when I hit my goal (weighing what I did when I got married), I still won’t be a slender man.

I am 6’ 1”, and at the moment weigh more than 350 pounds. The plan is for there to be at least 100 pounds less of me by this time next year. Wish me luck. Still, even at my target mass, I will be a big guy, which, I believe, qualifies me to speak on behalf of big guys everywhere.
