America turns 237 years young today, and the entire staff at Autoblog would like to take a moment to wish all of you a very Happy 4th of July.

Like many of you, we plan to surround ourselves with good friends, good food and good vibes today, but we still plan to chime in with stories periodically, and throughout the holiday weekend. We'll do our level best to keep you informed about all things automotive whenever you steal a glance at the Internet in between bites of barbecue and frosty celebratory beverages, and you can return the favor by staying safe, whether you're lighting fireworks or driving home from them. Happy Independence Day!
