Every car enthusiast should have a Ford Mustang sometime in their life, and, with the possible exception of the debut 1964 1/2 model or the original Fastback that starred in the 1968 movie Bullitt (more on that later), there may not be a better time for that than now.
For 2020, Ford continued to build on the 2015 redesign that moved the Mustang into its sixth generation with up to nine variants of the famed coupe and convertible filling out this year’s Pony portfolio. Read more

Lincoln Corsair AWD Reserve (2020)
Mention the words Lincoln automobiles to thirty or forty-somethings and most envision an elderly couple heading to the golf club in their Continental or Town Car.

BMW M850i xDrive Gran Coupe (2020)
Just say the name “Gran Coupe” and it automatically conveys an image of something sexy and luxurious yet functional and practical. The all-new BMW M850i is all that and more!

It doesn’t rank up in medical history with the discovery of penicillin or the creation of the polio vaccine, but Nissan has found a common remedy for owners of all-electric vehicles: range anxiety. Read more
BMW i3 Sport with Range Extender
I’m not a mom and I loved the i3 Sport. Why? Because it has personality, its different, did everything I needed perfectly and it will probably do the same for most people. They simply have to drive it in order to understand.
I could not quite figure out what this car is. It’s not an SUV yet you do sit higher than a typical sedan or coupe. It’s not a sedan because it doesn’t have the typical four doors, yet it does have rear doors and it’s not a sports car because of the size and height yet you could out maneuver most cars on the street with ease. Maybe it’s this outside of the box approach that really caused me to really like this car. Read more
