Car Driving Tip of the Month
(December 2017)
COMBINE TRIPS

Planning your errands and activities in advance will increase your car’s fuel efficiency and save you some cash. Fuse your errands into one trip, and try to combine it with an activity. Stop at the grocery store on the way home from work. Pick-up the dry cleaning before you head to yoga class.

Taking short trips back and forth not only puts extra stress on your car, with the current high gas prices, it also puts stress on your wallet. Extra trips can use up to twice as much fuel than a longer integrated trip covering the same distance. Not only that, but planning your trip ahead of time allows you to pick shorter rotes and ones that avoid gridlock, and wasteful idle time.

Here’s a rare bird we wish was parked inside our garage—a Signal Red 1964 Porsche 901/911. The Porsche 356 successor became the 911 because of a trademark dispute with Peugeot. This particular 901 was built in October of 1964 as one of the first series-production models—number 57 to be exact. Because of the dispute, all...

English Artist Benedict Radcliffe Wired with Passion (Sat, 16 Dec 2017 13:00:07 +0000)

In the opening scene of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” Roger stars opposite a sweet, monosyllabic Baby Herman in the animated short, “Something’s Cooking.” Roger flubs his part, the scene is cut, and Herman becomes a garrulous curmudgeon, screaming blue murder at the rabbit before storming off the cartoon set and into the grimy studio lot,...

Vanishing Point: A Car Movie Done Right (Fri, 15 Dec 2017 23:00:03 +0000)

I was barely six hours into a 12-hour flight across the Pacific, and I’d already finished my book. Ugh. I checked my iPad. Dammit, forgot to load any e-reading. I sighed, tucked the book and iPad away, and unfolded the multimedia screen. Let’s see. “War for the Planet of the Apes.” Nah, all that hair...

A few months ago, Toyota officially launched a new sporty sub-brand, the GR Sport Series, in Japan.
