A passing truck struck the victim, but he survived.
If you visited or lived in the Los Angeles area many years ago, you why it was called, unofficially, the City of Smog. In the early 1970s, I attended the LA Zoo with my third grade classmates on one of those given days when the South Coast Air Quality Management District likely issued a smog warning. The sky was gray, thick, and hazy. My eyes were red, my throat was thick and sore and it hurt to breathe deeply. Even though the

Cedric Glover, the mayor of Shreveport, Louisiana, went to Washington, D.C. to plead his case for the sale of Hummer to Tengzhong. The only thing is, we're not sure why he went. To be more precise, we do know that he wants to protect jobs at GM's Shreveport plant that builds Hummers.

Remember when we all wasted an afternoon trying to guess what car Honda was trotting around the streets L.A.? Good times, good times.

Little is known about the Giugiaro Mustang Concept, except that it's set to debut at the L.A. Auto Show later this month. A member of MustangForums.com, however, hit the jackpot when he snagged the Italian Stallion at a refueling station in Italy. Some are saying the Giugiaro Mustang will be a thinly veiled preview of the 2010 Mustang. The photographer who snapped this pic says the front actually looks a lot like the new Camaro, which we interpret to mean that the headlights are likely tucked un
Former Gizmondo executive Stefan Eriksson seems to have extended his lucky streak just a little while longer. On Friday, the jury in his trial on two counts of grand theft auto and fraudulent concealment told the judge they were deadlocked 10-2. Judge Patricia Schnegg declared a mistrial, but the LA District Attorney said that they would retry Ericksson.
I wish I lived closer to Los Angeles so I could visit the exhibit starting today at the Peterson Automotive Museum. They are reviewing the history of automotive power, including steam, electric, hydrogen, solar and jet-powered vehicles, CNN reports. It seems people have been worried about running out of gas for longer than we might think, since a gasoline-electric hybrid was introduced in 1917. Just like so many technolo
