  • Kicking the tires on presidential limousines

  • WHAT WERE THEY THINKING: The Misfits of Motordom

    Though a large number of poorly conceived or badly timed innovations were necessarily abandoned at the design phase, a large number have been developed into full-size, operational vehicles. On view will be examples of such vehicles (both popular and...
  • Song of the open road

    The Road. Do you hear the power of those words, all those songs pouring into your head like the dusty stream from a grain silo? Are you suddenly tangled up in blue on the lonesome highway to hell with white-line fever? Of course you are. Because life...

    IN the two years since I began working for the Los Angeles Times, hybrid automotive technology has matured dramatically. I can't say as much for the automotive consumer. In a strange analog to the culture wars over abortion and gay marriage, a debate...
