Land Speed Record Holders in Britain Offer a Unique Look

The British have had a serious obsession with holding, keeping and improving upon the land speed records for some time.

Anyway, here are some interesting facts courtesy of Green Bay used cars about these three you probably didn’t know. (more…)

When generational changes occur for vehicles they often incorporate a huge amount of design and engineering changes. This can mean scrapping a design altogether in favor of a whole new look and feel for any vehicle to add the improvements and technological advances that are popular and being created at the time of the generational change. In 1969 the Mustang came out with a brand new design and look by creating a longer vehicle with a fastback and adding two more lights to become the Boss 302 model that was to become a car of pure joy and pleasure to drive and ride in.

That statement is almost as short and to the point as a Jeep press release where they would rather see their Wrangler do the talking for itself rather than tell you all about it. The Rubicon model that made its way to Geneva recently gave Europeans a look at what we enjoy seeing on a daily basis as this Wrangler showed off with awesome Mopar Accessories to make it a Wrangler that is loaded up with goodies to enjoy and with the yellow paint that was chosen, the Jeep stole the show over many other off road competitors, even on a turntable platform.
