Six essential gadgets for a successful tailgate party
  Tailgating (not the kind that rude people do on the highway, the kind that awesome people do before/after sporting events, in stadium parking lots) consists of equal parts art, science, and deliciousness. So when you're gearing up to get your grill on, you momentarily may think that you're crazy for buying A ROBOT THAT CLEANS YOUR GRILL FOR YOU after you've finished making your famous BBQ-onion-sauce burgers and mustard-battered beer brats. But, really, wouldn't it be crazy not to have one? I mean, what kind of philistine tailgate party would that even be? Not to worry. We have compiled… Read More

Top 9 best-selling vehicles of 2014 so far
Oscar Wilde said, "Everything popular is wrong." Mr. Wilde, I beg to differ. We present the list of the most popular (best-selling) vehicles of 2014 so far, and these vehicles are solid. Cars.com, using data from NADA reports that measure sales through the end of July of this year, has released their list of the vehicles that are topping the year-to-date charts, and the selection is impressive. Now, keep in mind that these are not everyone's "most-desired" or "favorite" vehicles, but in the putting-one's-money-where-one's-mouth-is sense of popularity, this list has the winners. Ford F-Series - 429,065 sold Sold in 9… Read More

Buying a car out of state
Cars can be like shoes; shopping for them may involve trying them on and seeing how they fit. Other times, your previous test drives have informed your decision, and all you really need to choose now is the color. And sometimes, you find the car that you're ready to buy...at a dealership that is across state lines from where you live. Hmmm. You might have questions at this point. That's normal. There are certainly things involved in buying an out of state vehicle that you need to be aware of, but we'll do what we can to give you some… Read More

Tailgate parties – The sizzling new American tradition
I imagine myself being asked, “Would you like to eat a picnic-style meal with a few friends in a parking lot, using your vehicle as the kitchen/shelter?” My reply in this situation would be, “I believe that I would not.” Or would I? Well, despite my surprise at how much people might enjoy and desire to engage in such an event, they do. They do very much. Having a tailgate party, or simply “tailgating”, is born of the needs and opportunities of the moment, and has arisen through the public consciousness into the strata of culinary efforts reserved for foodies.… Read More

KBB's #1 most confortable car under $30,000: the 2014 Chevrolet Impala
When I was a kid, my dad was a Buick man. We're talking about the 70's through the 80's here, and fiberglass and polymers were only just starting to make an appearance on the exteriors and bodies of cars. That meant there was a lot of metal. And that meant a lot of weight. And as the distinguished Isaac Newton might have pointed out (if he were a car guy), when cars hit bumps in the road, those bumps display the magnitude of their own opposing force. As thus: "WHANNNG!" So when I got in the deeply plush, velvety seats… Read More
