2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition
Let’s not beat around the bushings. The Honda Civic Type R LE loses all of 50 pounds compared to a standard Civic Type R Touring, according to Honda. That’s not a lot when a Type R Touring weighs more than 3,100 pounds. Where the weight came from, th

Animal Conservation
One of the crazier, hard-to-swallow truths of the automotive industry: A whole lot of cars are fed to the Crusher. What’s the Crusher, you ask? It’s a dramatized catch-all phrase to gin up emotions when cars are seemingly destroyed needlessly. The co

The Wikipedia entry on the first-gen Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen says the truck needed 27 seconds to hit 62 mph. In my case, foot flat on the floor, hustling the long shifter as quickly as I could, I stopped counting after 15, because who cares at that poi
