Massive varied photodump of the cars I've spotted in Denver since moving

I work in Cherry Creek North, a pretty expensive area near downtown Denver, Colorado. I see interesting cars driving around this area all the time. Most of these photos are from Cherry Creek, but some are from other parts of the city. This is a roughly chronological photodump of what I've seen since moving here in… » 11/05/14 4:40pm 11/05/14 4:40pm

So Someone In My Town Drives This...

Very awesome Smart Roadster. Rear engined turbo three cylinder with rear wheel drive. Gotta love Florida for letting virtually anything be registered! My friend sent me the pic. » 8/12/14 3:41pm 8/12/14 3:41pm

Car2Go Smart ForTwo – the Opposite Lock review

Like most OppositeLock readers, I have several cars of my own, I like to drive them, and I actually enjoy taking care of them myself. Thus, despite being being a city-dwelling millennial, I am well outside the typical demographic targeted by car-sharing services. Still, I like to try new things, and when Car2Go… » 7/30/14 9:20pm 7/30/14 9:20pm

Small Car Vs Big Car Safety

I saw a couple of comments discussing small car vs big car safety in the Smart ForTwo vs S-Class article and I noticed that there were a few videos from IIHS. I dug around on YouTube and found this video that had IIHS's comments on the matter. Enjoy. » 7/17/14 6:23pm 7/17/14 6:23pm

Smarts revealed early?

Browsing through this morning's press releases I came across these images of the new Smart ForTwo and ForFour. JBL seem to have given us the best look yet of the stumpy brothers while previewing their new HiFi. » 7/16/14 5:32am 7/16/14 5:32am

Long Lost Hot Hatches - Smart ForFour Brabus

Think of Smart and no doubt you imagine an odd little two seat city car that you kind of want to push over. Want you don't think of is a turbocharged 5 door hatch that will do 137mph and 0-60 in 6.9 seconds. Sound like the work of a completely different manufacturer? It pretty much was.... » 4/29/14 8:50am 4/29/14 8:50am

Prepping for a Chicago Auto Show photo dump; I discovered this:

Yeah, yeah, I know the Chicago Auto Show was so long ago. Yeah, I'm slow. Procrastination is a [expletive]. » 4/18/14 3:26pm 4/18/14 3:26pm

Two Years With a smart: An Unexpected Journey.

Two years ago I made an automotive decision that most people would call me insane for doing. True, I may be insane, but I knew what I was getting into. I extensively researched the car, the brand, and all of its history before getting one of my own. » 3/11/14 4:47pm 3/11/14 4:47pm

Going to the Social Media Preview of the Chicago Auto Show.

Today's Media Preview is more formal than I'd like, so I'll be going tomorrow. I'm really interested in finding out what the heck is the "B" gear in the KIA Soul EV...And if it has the guts to go against popular favourites like the Leaf. » 2/06/14 11:04am 2/06/14 11:04am

2014 Chicago Auto Show Coverage!

It's my favourite time of year, auto show time! But this year will be a little different. This year I'll be attending the Media Preview of the Chicago Auto Show! » 1/14/14 12:44pm 1/14/14 12:44pm

This animated GIF perfectly sums up why no one should ever drive a car

It's not complicated, really. Public transportation makes more sense than driving. Why? Because driving is an inefficient use of resources. Because driving is soul sucking. Because we can fit an unbelievable number of drivers and would-be cars into one bus. This animated GIF reveals the basic mathematics of it all:… » 11/19/13 5:09pm 11/19/13 5:09pm

The Toyota iQ Might be Dead...
