Cadillac Kicks Down The Door With The New 640HP 2016 Cadillac CTS-V

Dear Lincoln, What happened to us? We used to be so close, but you’ve grown more and more distant as the years have gone by. When I bought my first Mark VII we had so much fun together, doing burnouts, drag racing, and eating up hundreds of highway miles at warp speed in quiet comfort. Then you built  the Mark VIII for me, and that was so thoughtful. You put a DOHC 32-valve Cobra engine in a buttery smooth body that would do an honest…

Driven: 2015 Chevrolet Colorado & GMC Canyon

I have mixed emotions about my love affair with Chevrolet’s small truck offerings. Back in high school I owned a 1988 Chevrolet S-10 4×4 with the woefully inadequate 2.8L V6 engine. The size was perfect for my needs but I can think of few engines that match the sheer miserableness of that 2.8L. Once the truck was sold I quickly forgot about the drivetrain, but the size of the truck stuck with me. Over the years I would revisit the small and mid size truck…

1950’s Pontiac “Chief of The Sixes” Coin

My father-in-law dropped this little treasure into my hands yesterday evening. He had found the token while cleaning out an drawer in his father’s desk. Pontiac’s advertising department coined the phrase (pun intended) “Chief of the Sixes” in 1926, and the slogan was a stamped on the company’s Indian Head radiator / grille emblems used from 1926-1929. The slogan passed from prominence after Pontiac launched their first V8 engine in 1955. The pocket token or coin was minted for Pontiac by the renowned advertising company Whitehead & Hoag of Newark City, NJ, from 1953-1956. The…
