Hollywood screen legend Burt Reynolds passed away September 6th (2018). He was one of Hollywood’s most charismatic stars and was the central character in many “car movies.” An actor for over four decades, Reynolds was idolized by an entire generation for what he represented; freedom, fun and lots of automotive shenaigans. Reynolds himself said he starred in over 100 movies, some of which featured some of the wildest car chases and jumps ever to grace the silver screen. In this article, we wi
How Many Cars?
In this article, we thought we’d dig up some interesting facts about the number of cars that are currently being used on our planet. We think you will be surprised by the magnitude. And the interesting part isn’t the number of cars currently in use, it’s the velocity of increase. By the year 2030, some estimates say the number of cars on Earth will double that of what we currently have. That’s a doubling of the number of cars on this planet in just 12 years.

It’s easy to forget that a lot of companies were building cars in the last century. Today we have a few dozen car brands, both domestic and foreign, but some 100 years ago there were over 500 car manufacturers selling automobiles in the United States.

Mention the words “Dodge Challenger” to any gearhead and they will likely break into a big smile and pontificate about the Chrysler-built muscle cars of the late 1960s. Or, perhaps about the awesome Hellcat Dodge Challenger built in just the last few years. Ask them about the first Dodge Challenger, however, and you will probably get an “I’m not sure about that one.” This is because few know that the first Dodge Challenger was a special car built almost a decade before the muscle cars of the

Today, cars and their internal combustion engines are the villains in the tale of air pollution and noise. And few would argue that living in the city means these noxious attributes are even worse. Wouldn’t it be nice it would be if we could go back to the good old days when horses carried people and freight around? A time when city streets had quaint cobblestones and the air was breezy and fresh. Life would be better then, or so they say, says Leckner Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of King George,
Today, the most frowned upon activity to pursue when driving is texting. Although some still do it, we all know that texting takes your eyes and mind off the road; a situation which can lead to accidents or even death. Ready for some déjà vu? This situation is almost identical to the time when car radios were first developed. As you will read, some states actually had “anti-radio laws” on the books.
