    Report: Chevy trademarks 'Zora,' is a special Corvette on the way?

    Automakers trademark names all the time, whether they want to protect some part of their past or if they are considering a model even far in the future. But occasionally a trademark pops up that is much more enticing than the rest. For example, General Motors recently reserved the name Zora for "motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles," according to the ...

    After watching this video, we're not sure which is a more sure-fire way to make a man cry happy tears: hand him the keys to the car of his dreams, or show him how much his children love him. In this case, it was probably the insuppressible combination of the two. The story starts when an eight-year-old boy promised his dad that, when the father would ...

We can almost tolerate the recalls on the bread-and-butter cars, but leave the performance vehicles alone. According to a report from The Car Connection, GM has ...
