    1340297880

    Limos are evil or at least the people who ride in them are. That's the takeaway we get after learning that the United States government is getting out of having so many, or at least counting as many, according to The Huffington Post.

    How Ford plans to phase out the best-selling E-Series
    1323370800

    In a commercial market where "change" is a four-letter word, Ford has a lot of explaining to do. It is not often that an automaker decides to dump a best-selling vehicle line, one that's dominated its segment for decades. But Ford's commercial vehicle team is doing it not once, but twice. Ford had been phasing out its Panther platform for a good ...

    When is a 1996 Lincoln Town Car with 114,000 miles on the clock worth $15,098? The correct answer should be never. In this case, however, the answer is when someone supposedly drops $45,000 worth of work into one to make a fake Bentley Arnage.
