Do you know what people love most? Stories. Philosophers have long speculated that stories are the things that make us human. We just love hearing about great characters, tough circumstances and thrilling conclusions.
Well, what if I told you that the character in today’s spotlight is not human at all? In fact, it is a car. And I do not mean one of those Disney animations for children. I have in mind a truly badass, out-of-this-world, gone-through-everything kind of vehicle. One ... Continue Reading →
The world of cars can be a messy place, if you try to classify all the different vehicles. For instance, a lot of people cannot say how a sedan differs from a coupe.

Recently, Corsia Logistics shipped one very peculiar automobile – the 1975 Bricklin SV-1. This is a car with an interesting history. Everything around it is veiled in controversy, marketing issues, staff problems, and a bunch of other misfortunes. Honestly, the fact that it even exists is somewhat baffling on its own.

Burning through fuel like it’s nobody’s business isn’t even the main downside of these cars. There are far greater challenges people don’t truly consider. So today I’m focusing on the cons that come with such vehicles. They may not be the dream-come-true cars you have in the back of your mind.
Although you may think a brand new Honda looks super sporty, it may not be a high-performance vehicle. And that modded Corolla your friend owns is not necessarily one either.

We would not be true to our human nature if we didn’t ask “why.” Why aren’t things cheaper? Why are sugary foods so delicious? Why should I know how to drive a stick shift?
Although I can go pretty deep into all these questions, let’s stick with the last one (pun intended). Even if you are a fan of automatic transmissions, it won’t hurt to know a bit more, right? And I have plenty of good reasons for you to learn ... Continue Reading →
