Love it or loathe it! Galag TG-1 – brought to you by Team Galag, a group of wealthy car enthusiasts who prefer to keep a low-key profile and make it all about their cars.

There’s hardly a person who doesn’t know Toyota or Nissan. But it hasn’t always been this way. In the US, before 1958 only a handful of people held their hands on the wheel of a Toyota or Datsun – the export name of Nissan.

History knows events, which cause such ripples that we feel them years, if not decades into the future. It seems like, with the rise of technology and the progress of society, such monumental impacts become even likelier. In other words, even a little wave has the potential of causing a tsunami.
Ford, for instance, has also met the scrutiny of the United Automobile Workers. Although a tentative deal has been reached in a much quicker manner, this only goes to show ... Continue Reading →

On October 24, 1975, John DeLorean – a handsome engineer and automobile industry executive founded The DeLorean Motor Company (DMC). The company’s less-than-a-decade-history was anything but a smooth ride.
DMC went bankrupt in 1982, and the U.S. government charged its founder with cocaine trafficking (following trial, the court acquitted John DeLorean of all charges).

Of course, you can expect that with vintage cars. We have some that Europeans want and ... Continue Reading →

Nowadays, in the USA, many young people decide to continue towards higher education with the hope to achieve a better life.
