Murilee Martin finds a 1971 International Harvester 1200D Pickup in a Bay Area junkyard, begging to be picked over.
I find quite a few International Harvesters in junkyards, mostly because I live in Colorado and the IHC Scout makes sense here. IHC pickups, though, aren’t as easy to find. We’ve seen this ’62 Travelette, this ’72, and this pickup-related ’71 Travelall in this series, and now I’ve found this well-used ’71 pickup in a …

#Ford will only build 137 Shelby Mustangs for 2015.
In Los Angeles and Detroit, Ford took the covers off their two track-ready Mustangs – the GT350 and GT350R. And Ford is only going to build 137 of them for 2015. Ehh? Theft Stats with Keys Left Inside Vehicle (NCIB) “For the years 2012 through 2014, at total of 126,603 vehicles were reported stolen with …

#JunkyardFinds An absurd thickness of steel used in these cars.
Most of these Junkyard Finds come from big chain-owned self-service wrecking yards that have fast inventory turnover and plenty of fresh cars at all times. This means that I’m going to see lots of Volvo 240s in California, lots of old Subarus in Colorado, and millions of acre-feet of Tauruses and Sables everywhere. Oddball high-end …

The #Ford #Mustang outsold the whole #Lincoln brand by a 1.5-to-1 count in March. U.S. Mustang volume has, not surprisingly, risen sharply since the age of the sixth-generation model began.
The Ford Mustang outsold the whole Lincoln brand by a 1.5-to-1 count in March. U.S. Mustang volume has, not surprisingly, risen sharply since the age of the sixth-generation model began. March’s tally, however, was particularly notable, not just because of the way in which Mustang volume made Lincoln’s abysmal total appear even worse (Lincoln sales …

TTAC wishes Derek all the best in his future endeavors.
Exactly five years ago today, I walked into the offices of VerticalScope as a fresh faced 21 year old and began my career as an auto journalist. And now it’s over. It has been a privilege to have worked at TTAC for nearly 4 years, under the tutelage of Ed Niedermeyer, Bertel Schmitt and Jack Baruth. …

A reader's #CRX bites the dust by way of Range Rover body-on-body contact. With what should he replace it? Jack Baruth has the answer...erm, answers.
It’s the return of Ask Jack, one of my your favorite sections! You can now ask me questions about nearly anything, as long as there’s a kinda-sorta automotive aspect to it. Kinda-sorta. In the meantime, check out today’s question: Hey Jack, I’m in a bit of a dilemma. I’m a self-employed delivery driver (delivering restaurant …

Mark thinks you can't beat the Dodge Grand Caravan when it comes to "bang for your buck".
“What’s the best car right now?” This question is the bane of existence for any automotive journalist. Not only is there no answer for this particular line of questioning, the inquirer is also looking for validation on their decision to buy a Honda Civic. Then you’re required to explain “it’s about your needs” and the best car is probably …

Well, here we are two years later, and #Lincoln is already clawing its way back.
I remember back when I first wrote on The Truth About Cars that Lincoln, noted creator of cars for airport limo drivers, would make a comeback. The comments broke down like this: a few of you agreed with me. The rest of you accused me of being either a paid shill for Lincoln or an …

#Mitsubishi #Questionoftheday
Cadillac’s Dare Greatly might be getting some flack as of late for its seemingly deep-but-surfacy language. But, it’s far from the most egregious use of the English language to move some metal. Oh, the Japanese – they have their own unique talents with our mother tongue. Whether it’s model names (Isuzu Mysterious Utility Wizard, anyone?) or some of …

2015 #BMW X4 xDrive28i #Review (With #Video)
Lately, BMW has been accused of answering questions nobody was asking. Looking at things a different way, however, BMW has taken personalization of your daily driver to a level we haven’t seen before by making an incredible number of variations based on the same basic vehicle. Once upon a time, BMW made one roadster and …
