Infinite-Garage editor Chris took over some photo duties this week to bring us some coverage from the World of Wheels show in Omaha. I’ll think you’ll see from these pictures he did an awesome job. Being a behind the scenes guy he doesn’t get enough credit usually and never gets to take out the company …View full post
I suppose I should start this post off with something really professional and cliche talking about how legendary the Hemi engine is. However if you are here you know that. The hemi recently turned 50 and there have been all sorts of celebrations. I hear the events were great. Meanwhile back here at the IG …View full post
Wagons are cool, panel trucks are even cooler. We love things of utility that also have style and I think the 1956 Ford F100 panel truck fits that to a tea so when I spotted this one at the WHDOW reunion I knew I wanted to get some shots of it. I’m pretty sure when …View full post
In the second of our “Aussie Built” cars series, we drive a Holden Caprice. Since the death of Ford Australia’s Fairlane and LTD twins in December of 2007 and the similar demise of Holden’s Statesman badge in September, 2010, the Holden Caprice stands alone as Australia’s extra-long-wheelbase sedan. Our test Caprice V8, in Phantom Black …View full post
Word comes today that the Chevy SS will now come with a manual transmission. Self proclaimed purist everywhere are rejoicing. They are dancing in the streets celebrating and some got so excited they set areas of Ferguson, Missouri on fire last night. Wait, I’m being told that is because of something else all together.
Good for Chevy in giving a really tiny portion of the population what they want. Now let’s be clear I’m not anti manual. I drive a manual every day and it’s fun. Still I like technology and advancement so I’m not one of those people who are against automatics or paddle shifts. In fact I like those too. I guess what I’m saying in this odd, short, and random post is that do you really care what transmission a car is going to have if you aren’t going to buy that particular car? I mean I’m not buying an SS. I like them but I’m not in the market for one. If I was I’m not sure I get the manual, or maybe I would. The internet will make a big deal out of this announcement from Chevy but I just don’t get why?
I imagine a good bunch of IG readers probably also listened to Car Talk on NPR, if not you really missed a great piece of America radio. Tom Magliozzi was one half of the Click and Clack duo that brightened up a lot of weekends with an informative and witty show about cars. Duh. Tom was 77 and will be missed dearly.
