It's early July and that means that it's time to celebrate our nation's independence. Of course, we all observe the holiday in our own way. For some it's just nice to sit outside with a cool beverage and enjoy the outdoors. Of course, if you're like the guys from Bullet Motorsports, the best way to honor the country is to get into a big American muscle car, shoot off some fireworks and do a big smoky burnout to the straining voice of Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen. Sounds perfect to us.
Planning a road trip over the Independence Day weekend? After reading this, you may want to just stay home. Experts say drivers will endure heavy traffic, high gas prices and high numbers of traffic fatalities on the nation's roadways throughout the July 4 weekend.
Ever wondered which cities are the most patriotic in the US? Well, when it comes to buying American cars and trucks, CarGurus.com recently put together a study in order to show how well domestic automakers do against their European and Asian counterparts in major metropolitan areas. Oddly, the study uses data compiled from dealerships across the US based on inquiries submitted by prospective buyers in May, which means that actual sales figures aren't involved – the survey covers which cars
Well, kids, it's been a rough one, but America has made it to another birthday. This is the one shining day out of the year when neighbors can comfortably put politics aside, share a frosty beverage and take comfort in the knowledge that despite our differences, we're all lucky to let freedom ring and call this stretch of the planet home.
Today is the 4th of July – Independence Day – and as a country, we're all taking a break from the normal work routine to celebrate America's 235th birthday. (She's looking good in her old age, isn't she?) Like many of you, we'll be kicking back with family and friends today, but never fear, we've still got plenty of content coming your way.
We may have one less excuse not to visit the in-laws this holiday season. According to the National Motorists Association and State Farm, driving on the holidays may actually be safer than jumping behind the wheel on a normal day. The insurance agency recently took a look at the number of claims it received on seven separate major U.S. holidays – the Fourth of July, New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Easter, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas – and found that on average, those days had
The first internal combustion-powered automobile was not invented by an American (thank you, Karl Benz). But we did invent the motorcycle (coal-powered), air brake, AC motor, stop sign, tractor, assembly line, automatic transmission, muffler, tow truck, bulldozer, car radio, tracked amphibious landing vehicle, stock car racing, cruise control, carbon fiber, the integrated circuit, satellite navigation, airbags, catalytic converter, The Mars Rover and even the Segway. In other words, we didn't in
It's the 4th of July, and today we celebrate America's 234th birthday. Across the United States, there will be parties and parades; food and fireworks; and most importantly, good times with family and friends. We'll be taking part in the festivities, too, but don't worry - our usual weekend schedule stays in effect. So, safe travels as you make the rounds today. Before you head out the door, though, we've got one bit of required reading posted after the jump. It's easy to take our freedom and pr
On Sunday, the United States of America will celebrate its 234th birthday, and rightfully so, 4th of July festivities will be taking place all around the country – cookouts, camping trips and pool-side relaxation are not out of the question.
Today, we in the United States celebrate Independence Day; a day full of backyard celebrations with family and friends, tasty food on the grill, an abundance of refreshing beverages, and, in towns across America, fireworks displays that close the day of celebration in grand fashion. As we like to do each year on July 4th, we're giving you just one bit of required reading before you head out for all the festivities. Without that document, we have nothing to celebrate, but because of it and the co
Automobiles have become safer over the years, yet every time you get in a car, you're rolling the Reaper's dice. On average, 110 people die on the road each and every day. While many accident fatalities can be attributed to drinking and driving, not wearing a safety belt or reckless driving, some of the danger is compounded by the time of day people are on the road.
