Welcome to the second part of the sixth episode of “The Tailpipe”, in which I describe the worst ideas in automotive history. In today’s episode, I will describe the 80s at General Motors.
As we already know, the 70s were a time of expansion of the Japanese automakers in the US. In the 80s, the phenomenon has intensified even more. Knowing this, GM has decided to...
A fraud lawsuit brought against former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick by investor Benchmark Capital was sent to arbitration on Wednesday, and Kalanick is feeling blessed.
When Prism CEO and Uber investor Steve Russell shared a status on Facebook praising the judge’s order—“Benchmark just got #Benchmarked !! The good guys prevail as judge tosses rogue VC’s ‘creative’ arguments out of court”—Kalanick...View more »

I visited my local hobby store who recently obtained a full collection of 1/18 cars including this lovely Lancia:
