These Gorgeous Automotive Patent Prints Are the Perfect Addition to Your Man Cave

Mechanical drawings aren't just for the flat file anymore.

Old technology never dies. It just waits around to become part of some "artisanal" trend. Printing may be a dying profession, but as an art form, it's just getting started. Silk-screens, screw-presses, letter presses-all the remnants of the pre-portable screen age

Being Inside Mercedes' Concept Private Jet Cabin is Even Swankier Than Being Inside Its Cars

We'd let Mercedes design anything of ours, if we could.

Mercedes-Benz is a company that's usually recognized for, you know, its work in the automobile industry. That said, good design transcends the medium, and thus, Mercedes is often using its designing prowess to affect other arenas, as well. So when Lufthansa went looking for a design studio that would help design the next generation of VIP aircraft, the aviation giant went to the automotive giant for some help, and the result is simply beautiful.

Can't Back up Your 2016 Ford F-150's Trailer? Pro Trailer Backup Assist Has You Covered

Not only does it save time, it might just save the day, as well.

For newbies and regulars alike, the experience can get a bit hairy, especially without a spotter handy. Thankfully, Ford's built itself a system that will take all that crap and make it the machine's problem.

No, You Shouldn't Be Buying Brand New Cars for Your Freshly-Licensed Children

There's more to it than just trying to keep your little ones safe.

Recently, I came across an article on Forbes' website, written by Joann Muller. It was called, "Why You Really Should Buy Your Teenager a New Car." Aside from the fact that I prefer the grammar-be-damned should really to really should, something else about the article stuck with me. Namely, the story posits that you absolutely must buy your child a new car. To that, I say no. Hell no.

Don't Believe the Hype on Natural Gas, Report Says, and the Diesel Industry Agrees

Diesel runs the big machines, and it ought to stay that way.

One effective way of quickly reducing carbon emissions is to encourage municipalities to convert fleet vehicles from gas-burning to alternative-fuel using. There's been a big push to encourage use of natural gas, since it produces fewer CO2 emissions than traditional gasoline. However, natural gas is far from environmentally friendly, and now a new underlines that fact.

BMW's 435i ZHP Pays Homage to One of the Best Equipment Packages Ever Conceived

It's not the same, but hey, it's better than nothin'.

Back in the days of the E46-generation BMW 3 Series, the hi-po M3 was offered in coupe form only. To rework the sedan to fit the M3's wheel setup would have required more fender work than BMW wanted, so the sedan only received a Performance Package, option-code ZHP. The E46 ZHP went on to be one of the most celebrated BMWs, but once the M3 sedan came back, the ZHP floated away into the ether. Now, it's back. Sort of.
