    The Only Car Endorsed By A Moonwalker Was Not What You'd Expect

    # 2014-04-15 06:20:00, Jalopnik
    Only twelve men have walked on the moon, and it's pretty incredible how little those men used their status as Apollo astronauts to shill for products or endorsement deals. In fact, it seems like only one moon-astronaut was ever used to sell cars, and the car sold just might be the last one you'd exp...

    # 2014-04-14 02:40:00, Jalopnik

    The 1980s Were A Time Of Deep Madness In The VW Community

    # 2014-04-11 03:00:00, Jalopnik
    It's always hard to tell what your own culture is like when you're immersed in it. That's why most of us never realized how stupid we looked wearing those ridiculous pants back in the '90s or whatever. Car culture is no different, and looking back at the '80s VW community is downright alarming.Read ...

    Review: Skoda Octavia RS

    # 2014-04-10 18:01:23, The Truth About Cars
    Originally, I wanted to borrow an Octavia RS as the ultimate example of the “nice things you Americans can’t have”. But then I decided not to. I had three reasons. First, the RS, unlike “ordinary” Skodas, isn’t readily available in any shade of brown. Second, I had already tested a diesel, manual wagon recently. And […]

    No, this car isn’t this kind of Fox, though it is a sibling of the first Volkswagen Passat aka Dasher. The Fox was the name given to the Audi 80 for the United States market, and we can all be forgiven for not knowing this (as very few were sold). This completely used-up, not-so-quick brown […]
