In an automotive news environment of electric ‘this’ and technology ‘that’, does it strike anyone else as ironic that Henry Ford, while building his first Quadricycle in or around 1896, was employed by Edison Illuminating? I thought so. The guy that essentially fathered the American automobile industry got his professional start as Edison’s chief engineer in their Detroit plant. And while we’re only guessing, we’d bet Hank would get a huge kick o...

great stuff from a new contributor to txGarage
The Honda adventure bikes will never fly. Why? BECAUSE IT'S A HONDA! Sure, they will sell some because they are new, and then pull the plug when they don't hit the numbers. It has happened many times. Remember the EXP-2?

Great article chronicling Old vs New - A Tale of Two Sierras - Go check it out!
How many of you would buy back your first car if the opportunity presented itself? I know plenty of people that enjoy the romance of the idea, like looking through an old yearbook and seeing past relationships, but only a few that would actually want to live with their first car. And that’s because – at least usually – first cars aren’t always the coolest, fastest, or most reliable forms of transportation.

Road &Track’s former columnist, Peter Egan, has a long-time friend, Chris Beebe. And on a day, week or month when Peter was scrambling for subject matter, he could invariably count on Chris to pinch hit. Whether Chris was selling, Peter was buying or they were in pursuit of something together, Chris was invariably the toe-may-toe to Peter’s toe-mah-toe, the Beebe ‘yin’ to Egan’s ‘yang’. To date, I haven’t felt the need for that sort of editorial ...

Scott Black travels to France for the 2016 Le Mans race - check out his post on txGarage!
Le Mans, the greatest test of man and machine. The most important sports car race in the world. With these high accolades, how could the race possibly live up to its reputation? - Those thoughts seeped through my mind when I boarded American Airlines Flight #48 to Paris in June. The initial excitement from Ford’s 2015 announcement to return to the storied venue had been tempered by a fear of potential disappointment.

Living in a big city like San Antonio means having to deal with morning and afternoon traffic each-and-every day. Getting stuck in traffic can give a person a chance to let their minds wander and think freely. During my week of traffic jams – and jamming – in the 2016 Chevrolet Trax LTZ, I looked out at the four-lane sea of brake lights and thought, “Do any of these people care about driving?”

NorthPark Center Hosts ‘Wrapped in Art’ Competition:
Wrap Your Head Around That!
At one point not too long ago Dallas’ NorthPark was little more than a hugely successful, elitist enclave. Those residing in a Park Cities zip code regarded it as their private oasis, while those of us in outlying zip ‘burbs confined ourselves to Dillard’s and Penney’s, and then got-the-h*ll outta there. More recently it’s evolved into something considerably more democratic (small ‘d’). While remaining beautifully detailed and very well-scrubbed,...

the HUUUUGGE 2016 Infiniti QX80 by David Boldt
In our zip code, where I’m one of perhaps two Subaru owners (2013 Subaru Crosstrek, while the other is a fairly new Impreza hatch) among its 20,000 residents, Infiniti’s QX80 has seemingly usurped the beloved Suburban as – you guessed it – the National Car of Texas. Or, at the very least, it’s the National Car of Southlake. Forget any of the Lexus SUVs except – perhaps – various iterations of the Lexus RX. And while Tahoes and Suburbans, Yukons a...

I still remember my first elementary school crush, mostly because her best friend’s mom drove a Denali SUV. When I climbed into the 2016 GMC Sierra Denali it took me back to 2nd-grade memories of seeing my first crush jumping into the leather interior of the white SUV during afterschool pickups. My little brother must have gone through a similar flashback because the first thing he said when he got in the passenger seat: “It reminds me of a truck...

On an already hot July morning, Nissan brought its biggest suits to downtown Dallas for the unveiling of a new(ish) 3-row SUV for 2017, as well as announcing a partnership with one of Dallas’ newest public venues, Klyde Warren Park. The irony of the partnership, aligning one of the country’s biggest automakers with a park built over a freeway, wasn’t lost on Nissan, the park’s board of directors or those of us in attendance. In combination with t...

David Boldt gives his full review on the 2016 Infiniti QX60 - check it out!
So, in making my request to the company delivering press vehicles I mentioned sporty and recreational. I’m thinking 2-place coupe, 2+2 GT or – at worst – a credible attempt at a 4-door sport sedan; I wasn’t – I gotta’ admit – thinking 3-row SUV. But that, in the guise of Infiniti’s refreshed QX60, is what I have. And on some level – perhaps two levels – it’s sporty and recreational…’sporty’ if your destination is a ball game, and ‘recreational’ i...

Even on a streetscape with more CR-Vs, Foresters and Rogues than you can shake a proverbial stick at, Toyota’s best-selling RAV4 remains ubiquitous. It is seemingly everywhere, and for any number of good reasons. Since its launch some twenty years ago, leading the way in what we now call the compact SUV category, the RAV4 and its audience have consistently benefited from intelligent design, reasonable responsiveness, accessible price points and –...
