Note: The following story was excerpted from the August 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

If you’re a “hot-hatch” fan in America, these days your choices have largely been limited to the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Golf R, along with the Ford Focus ST and Focus RS. Of course, there are also various speedy Subarus, along with the Honda Civic Si coupe and sedan. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of those, but if you’re the type of enthusiast who can’t wait to pick up the next issue of EVO magazine, you’re certainly aware of all the fantastic over-the-top hot hatches the Brits get to drive but you can’t buy. Why is it we always want what we cannot have?

Should I buy a car or a crossover?

The Honda CR-V (left) costs about as much as a Honda Accord (right), and offers about as much passenger space. Which would you buy?

The sedan is dead. By now, you’ve probably heard the dire prognostications for what was once the auto industry’s most popular type of passenger vehicle. The four-door sedan—long a staple of American motoring—has given way to the crossover SUV, and it doesn’t appear that consumers are looking back.

1985 Buick Electra

Which of the following events was more jarring? The addition of Elmo to the cast of Sesame Street, or the introduction of a front-wheel-drive Buick Electra? Both events, coincidentally, took place in 1985, and both events were met with a certain amount of grumbling.

You have to respect Honda Motor Company’s minimalistic nature. Honda and Acura vehicles are packaged in such a manner that they are not offered with stand-alone options. The Honda model lineup is among the smallest of any major automaker, and the company even keeps available trim levels to a tidy minimum.

Longest Lasting Vehicles

2019 GMC Yukon

Is 200,000 miles the new 100,000 miles? Maybe not, but the number of vehicles reaching the 200,000-mile mark seems to be on the rise. According to the analysts at vehicle-retail site iSeeCars.com, just under one percent of all cars, crossovers, SUVs, and pickup trucks will go that distance–presumably to the delight of their owners.

One of the best perks of my job is visiting on-air with WGN radio host Nick Digilio as a guest of The Nick Digilio Show. A fixture of Chicago overnight radio, Nick’s show is a late-night entertainment oasis in a sea of repetitive news, pre-recorded political blather, and infomercials.
