1975 AMC Pacer, Classic Ads From 1975

1975 AMC Pacer

Despite the crushing blows of unleaded gasoline, catalytic converters, and ungainly 5-mph bumpers, 1975 was not actually a boring year, automotively speaking.

Teen Performance Driving School, Teen Defensive-Driving School

The author’s daughter queued up for an emergency-lane-change exercise at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL.

Like most parents, my wife and I are always looking for ways to give our daughter a leg up in life. We closely monitor and support her scholastic, athletic, and volunteer endeavors, we’re openly concerned about her general health and welfare, and we make a point of finding time to chat with the kid about life in general. My daughter would tell you that we’re pests, but she knows our hearts are in the right place.

BMW 7-Series Cabin Lighting, Look Inside the 2017 BMW M760i

We recently had a 2017 BMW M760i in through the Consumer Guide fleet for our usual rounds of editor test drives and evaluations. We’re no strangers to high-end luxury vehicles at CG HQ, but even by premium-brand standards, the M760i was one of the most lavishly equipped (and priciest) vehicles we’ve tested in quite a while.

Sometimes hindsight plays tricks on us. I have always been uncomfortable that the Talking Heads’ seminal album More Songs about Buildings and Food was available on 8-Track tape.

1997 BMW 318ti

Cheap Wheelsby Don Sikora II

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

BMW’s 3-Series has been around long enough that its basic premise is well defined. Think sporty, rear-drive, premium-priced sedans, coupes, and convertibles. Handsome, if maybe a bit conservative, styling is part of the mix, as is a highly desirable overall package.
