    ‘18 MCLAREN 570S SPIDER: FAST & FURIOUS!

    McLaren’s magical open-top 570S Spider simply redefines the term ‘sportscar’, blogs Road Test Editor Howard Walker We’re cruising for caffeine.

    MIKE COOK: LOSS OF A LEGEND!

    Mike Cook had spent a lifetime immersed in the British automotive industry as a PR and advertising executive, in the hobby as a racer, and later in his retirement as an archivist for Jaguar Land Rover. He passed away this week. When I was a magazine editor in the 1960s and 1970s, I often interfaced […]

    F-TYPE: RALLY ‘ROUND THE JAG!

    The one-off F-TYPE rally cars also pay homage to the legendary Jaguar XK 120 ‘NUB 120’ that, in the early-1950s driven by Ian Appleyard, completed three consecutive Alpine Rallies without incurring a single penalty point. And, won the RAC and Tulip. Both rally-spec F-TYPE convertibles are powered by Jaguar’s 300PS 2.0-litre Ingenium four-cylinder engine. With […]

    ZIPPY BRITS: CALIFORNIA HEALEY WEEK!

    Zippy Brits beautify Solvang during California Healey Week 2018. British car and bike enthusiast Jim Palam was on the scene. It was just a green dot when I first spotted it moving rapidly towards me, flickering in and out of the Cedar shadows along Highway 246 in Solvang. As the throaty British roadster whooshed by […]

    ‘19 VOLVO S60: ONE SWEET SWEDE!

    There’s really only one criticism you can level at Volvo’s latest, built-in-America S60 sedan: It’s not an SUV, blogs Road Test Editor Howard Walker. As you’ve probably heard, sales of once much-loved four-door sedans are going the way of CD players, fax machines, Sears department stores and Charlie Sheen. Who would have thought that the […]
