The Hyundai Genesis Sucker-Punch to the Luxury Car Market

Somehow, very recently, Hyundai's Genesis brand just 'got it'. I'm not saying it was gradual, either. With the new G80 and GV80, the automaker did it in one generation. Have you seen the previous G80? The new one makes the previous car look like one of those lasagna-shaped fish that ...

Two Wheel Tuesday: How I screwed up a vintage frame, and how a lathe, a sledgehammer, and the Internet fixed it.

Two Wheel Tuesday: How I screwed up a vintage frame, and how a lathe, a sledgehammer, and the Internet fixed it.

Early last summer, I picked up a derelict 1973 Harley/Aermacchi SX SS-350 frame for just the cost of shipping.

Last week, while attempting to install new steering bearings, I stupidly bumped the frame, ...

Oldsmobile’s FE3-X Concepts were Unironically Cool

Being an "old person's car" is a hard image to shake, especially when the name of your brand has the word 'old' in it. If you were Oldsmobile in the 1980s and 90s, you could either accept your fate or try something different. Most other GM brands chose the latter ...
