On January 18, on the Euronext Paris stock exchange, shares of Stellantis traded hands for very first time. A merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and the Peugeot Group (PSA), Stellantis is now the world’s third-largest automaker, with projected 2021 sales approaching 8 million light vehicles–ranking the new company behind only Toyota and Volkswagen, and ahead of General Motors and Hyundai Motor Company.
In its opening weekend, Ford v Ferrari raked in about 31.5 million dollars, so it’s safe to call this high-octane historic racing film a bona fide success right out of the gate.

Horse lovers probably remember 1965 very fondly. Not only was ’65 the first official model year of the insanely popular Ford Mustang, but there were horses all over TV as well.
If you were paying attention to marketing in 1984, you likely remember Apple’s landmark television advertisement “1984.” The computer maker’s ad portrayed a dystopian world chillingly similar to the one conceived by George Orwell in his horrifying 1949 novel of the same name.
Apart from being the home of Consumer Guide Automotive, Lincolnwood, Illinois is a rather ordinary municipality. Adjacent to Chicago’s Northwest Side, Lincolnwood is a middle-income community of 12,000 citizens, most of whom appear to be in their seventies. I intend to retire someplace with less traffic, but I digress.
