No Audi, Intelligence is NOT the new Rock and Roll

No Audi, Intelligence is NOT the new Rock and Roll

Rock and Roll and intelligence are two completely different things.

Idiot.

What Do We Think of Ford's New Marketing Campaign?

What Do We Think of Ford's New Marketing Campaign?

I like Bryan Cranston. I like Ramin Djawadi’s orchestral arrangement of “Paint it Black” from Westworld.

But, uh, other automakers actually do build things too? And considering Ford is going to kinda stop building cars in the U.S., it seems like an odd thing to brag about.

Still, nice epic quality, and certainly better than Chevy’s incessant “not actors” ads that are apparently so...

Is it just me, or...

Is it just me, or...

...have there been a disproportionate number of #twowheelsbad articles on the FP?

I’m not complaining; on the contrary kudos to the Lanesplitter team et all for churning out so many articles. I’m just not as much of a bike guy, so I tend not to read those articles.

What A Terrible Commercial

What A Terrible Commercial

Easy, Nissan: Toyota tried and failed to join the Big Boys and lost with far less pretentious marketing.

11 Takeaways from the 2016 Philly Car Show

11 Takeaways from the 2016 Philly Car Show

11. As tends to be the case, the FCA booth professionals were the most not unattractive.

10. The new Buick Envision and new LaCrosse (both on turntables) were completely generic-looking cars in person

9. GM’s Korean-built cars are noticeably cheaper-feeling

8. The legions of kids at the show really love the big new Euro-style vans from Ford, Ram, and Mercedes

7. I would never tire of opening and...

Snarky Super Bowl L Car Ad Takes

Snarky Super Bowl L Car Ad Takes

MINI: Defy Labels

Already saw it on YouTube, so no surprise factor. Cool, simple, progressive, but unforgivably missing Rowan Atkinson. People only buy MINIs because they want to be Mr. Bean.

KIA: Walken Closet

A spot must be more than a star and a pun. It must also have a remotely interesting product to sell. And Kias are not remotely interesting. Socks are more interesting.

Jeep: 4x4ever

This is...

Here are some of the cars in High-Rise

Here are some of the cars in High-Rise

This movie starred Loki, Scar, and a guy we all thought was Oberyn Martell...until it turned out to be Bard the Bowman.

But to a gearhead like me, an unsung star of the movie was the lot full of 70s-era European DDs in wonderful muted shades of green, blue, and gold.

Sadly, the lot of cars would, like the towers they service, gradually deteriorate.

Faraday Future Has Nothing on TREIA MOTOR COMPANY

Faraday Future Has Nothing on TREIA MOTOR COMPANY

Most people aren’t aware of the existence of the East Lehighton International Auto Show (LIAS), and that’s the point. East Lehighton is a sleepy hamlet that lies deep in the Commonwealth of Penn’s Woods, and its downtown consists of a small movie theater and a fence for tying up (off?) horses. In other words, the perfect setting to unveil not one, not two, but an entire RANGE of all-new,...

What have we here?

What have we here?

A lovely beige Nissan Figaro, encountered by my dad at a produce stand the other day. Imported from the UK...just when it turned 25!
