I think I’m a pretty good driver. I really do. In fact, most other people would say they’re pretty good drivers, too. But here’s the thing: there is always something you can learn that will help make you a better driver. That’s where Cadillac’s V-Performance Academy comes in.
Riding aboard a Navy submarine, boat or ship, can sometimes get boring. Books and cards can only take you so far. So, it appears that some sailors have taken up vaping to pass the time and form social bonds. And the Navy is cutting that out quick because there have been... problems.
Imagine this situation: you buy a brand-new 2017 Nissan GT-R. You’re really excited about this track-slaying beast. The next logical step is to take it out on a spirited joyride. So you bring it to the Tail of the Dragon. And this is where the trouble happened.
If I were to ask you what the Fast and Furious beer is, you’d all chant back in unison, “Corona.” And you’d be right. But, as it turns out, Corona’s parent company, Anheuser-Busch InBev, never actually paid to have the beer appear in the films.
From the outside, attending the press days at an auto shows may seem like fun (to some, anyway.) And while it’s a nice break from all day every day at the office, you have to remember that we’re spending up to two to three days in musty convention centers for you. You, the readers, whom we work so hard to inform.
Infotainment systems are tricky little things to design; most customers won’t notice when it works well but will definitely notice when it screws up.

Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to read because cars are the greatest oh yes they are the greatest.
Here it is, officially, the Toyota FT-4x Concept. And yes, it was conceived after some Toyota people got together with some “outdoorsy millennials in the Bay Area” (actual quote). But bad #brand aspirations aside, the concept is actually pretty cool. No, I wouldn’t own it. But I would loot the shit out of one given…

I have a lot of stuff and I’m not the most organized person in the world (that’s what the help is for) so from the time to time I lose things. Credit cards, diamond rings, razor blades and 1996 Mercedes-Benz SL500 convertibles are all fair game.

Handwashing your own car can be one of the most therapeutic activities you engage in. Which is why, when cleaning expert and advice columnist Jolie Kerr invited me to join her on her podcast Ask a Clean Person to discuss exactly that, I wasn’t about to pass it up. Chat about car detailing for an hour? Yes, please!
I’m still flabbergasted as I’m writing this. First, that this story involves a tank collector. And second, that he found gold bars in an old tank that totaled about $2.5 million dollars at today’s exchange rates.
