Back in the Seventies, Ford boldy advertised a number of self-determined similarities between the Mercedes W124 E-Class sedan with their newly-launched Granada sedan. While it didn’t exactly draw buyers to the showrooms away from the three-pointed star to the Blue Oval, it certainly got people talking at the time and was unconventional for the time. 40 years later though, I think Mercedes may have won the war. Take a look and tell me–do you see a difference? I can see it, but after a few whiskey sours, maybe I can be convinced that the Granada and the 230-E are the same car. Continue reading Is it a Ford? Or is it a Mercedes? That infamous advertisement, 40 years on.

If you’ve been following this site for a while, you may be aware of my unrepentant love for cars of the Disco Era and my strange obsession with the Seventies Cadillac Eldorado. Doug DeMuro, who has a reputation for also liking unusual cars, takes this 1977 model out for a drive and shows us what he thinks of it–but also shows us why this was such a popular luxury car of the era.

MotorWeek shows us all what the GNX could do.
Back in 1987, Buick took their already-strong Grand National and turned 547 of them into the evil, Devil worshipping monster known as the GNX. MotorWeek tested one out and it’s clear that even then, it was special. Today, a good one can clear $75,000 and it’s easy to see why.

Joe Rogan Interviews Elon Musk: A Fascinating Conversation
This has to be one of the most fascinating conversations I’ve heard in a long time. Anyone interested in cars, space, weapons, technology, the future, artificial intelligence, or business should really take the time to listen to this whole interview.
Yes, they spend one single minute out of 2.5 hours smoking a joint, and that has taken all of the headlines, but anyone reporting like that is simplistic and stupid and has completely missed the value of this conversation. (Plus it’s 2018 and if you’re still worried about the evils of people smoking pot you really need to find a new hobby.)
Seriously, you should watch/listen to this.
