Observed Fuel Economy

412bhp is claimed for the 2011 302cu.in. but travel is longer and the short, stubby gear lever snicks into first more easily. Below ISOOrpm around town, the six-speed manual gearbox found in the new car has a hated skip shift programme, which moves the lever from first to fourth. Stay at around 2000 revs before changing cogs and it goes away. Acceleration delivers a different feel than in the '86. The newer Mustang is carrying around 400lbs of additional weight and the engine, which sports quad...

Just driving up the Pacific Highway Coast is a pleasure in itself on our congested roads in the UK it's easy to forget the pleasure of driving on empty, exciting roads. And don't be fooled into thinking all American roads are straight highways or laid out in cities like grids. The PCH is a joy to drive with its varied and winding route. What could be more perfect for such a drive than a Cadillac CTS We've raved plenty of times about America's premium luxury sedan which is on sale here in the...

It's not sex, drugs or rock 'n' roll, but in classic American car ownership having the right insurance cover is just as important as having the right oil in your engine, as Ed Hall explains sump or the polish on your paint.

Insurance means that even if the worst happens to your pride and joy there'll be another one. The correct insurance should allow you...

If you enjoyed the amazing hot-rodded 1950 Pontiac Chieftain belonging to Mick Skilton in this month's magazine, then you'll love this ad for the 1956 Pontiac. Bunkie Knudsen and ohn De Lorean had landed in Pontiac in 1956 and were busy re-inventing the division as GM's performance brand. Although it would take a while for their full impact on the division to manifest itself physically in the appearance of the cars, a change in advertising direction however could be acheived instantly.

On The Skids

The Germans might claim to have developed ABS first, but of course it was really the good old USA that gave us anti-lock braking first improvements at a suspiciously similar time. Chrysler (who partnered with Bendix) GM and Ford worked up a computerised set-up, but CM and Ford took rather a short-sighted approach in only applying the system to the rear wheels. Yes, they're more likely to skid as weight transfers forward, but they ain't the ones you steer with Chrysler's system used a toothed...

Roy Brown Edsel

Roy Brown Edsel

Fairfax Cone summed up the Edsel name in his memoirs 'It was a very prim and proper name, like Elwyn or Ethelbert and like them it was faintly effeminate. It had none of the strength of Pontiac or Lincoln, or the spirit of Mercury, nor did it perpetuate a great name in the industry, like Chevrolet, Chrysler or Ford itself.' Dave jenkins felt that 'It wasn't as nice a sounding name as Jaguar, Plymouth or LaSalle, but it was better than say, Buick.' Finally there is considerable evidence...

Guy with not a lot of cash, but a head full of hopes and dreams started out there with this '50 Pontiac.

He was like a million other guys all over America. A 1950 Pontiac Chieftain wouldn't have been many drag racers' first choice - despite the fast-sounding name, Pontiac's lazy flathead straight-eight came out in '32 and...
