Like many auto journalists, the editors of Consumer Guide Automotive attend manufacturer-hosted press events to get our first look at the newest vehicles hitting the market—that’s how we produce most of our First Spin test-drive reviews. However, we also attend “smorgasbord-style” press events that allow us brief access to a broad variety of new vehicles from a host of manufacturers, for quick-take impressions and helpful back-to-back comparison drives.

It took a recent conversation with an old friend to jog my memory. But the more she talked, the clearer my recollections became. There was a candy bar sold in the mid Seventies called Seven Up, and I had purchased many of them back in the day.

1984 Hurst/Olds

If you were looking for a diverse collection of affordable sporty cars, you’d probably want to set the time-machine dial for 1984. You would be hard pressed to find a broader collection of fun-to-drive rides at any time other than the mid Eighties.

Toyota released the fifth generation of its wildly popular midsize crossover at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. It’s again offered in gas and hybrid versions with 7- or 8-passenger seating, but brings more cargo room, a number of newly available features, and better hybrid fuel efficiency.

Worst Car Commercials

Is this a scene from the worst car commercial of all time? Read on…

For as relatively new a form of communication as television is, the content broadcast via that medium ages incredibly quickly. In terms of style and language, it may be difficult to tell a book written in 1920 from one penned a couple of decades later. Television history, however, is well defined by rather short epochs, and none is more easily recognizable or uniquely self contained than the Eighties.

2005 Toyota MR2

2005 Toyota MR2

In many ways, the Toyota MR2 is a lot like the Honda Del Sol. Both cars seem like they should have been hits with young enthusiasts, but neither one ever truly found an audience. But unlike the Del Sol, which lasted for just a single generation of production, the MR2 was redesigned twice before it was withdrawn from the U.S. market.
