5 Cheap Ways to Make Your Car Go Faster at the Track
Jun 20, 2016 - 7:09 AM - by AutoGuide.com


If you’re taking your car to the track, you know the term “cheap” is relative.

Nothing is really inexpensive when it comes to racing (or even just lapping), but one need not spend tens of thousands of dollars on ultra-expensive car parts to make a car track-ready. Here are some simple and reasonably affordable mods that will help you lower your lap times.



Better Tires



Most experts will tell you that when it comes to improving your car’s track performance, tires provide the single biggest bang for your buck. By using a set of dedicated racing tires, you can choose a tire optimized for performance on the track and not worry about wearing them down or puncturing them with a nail during your daily commute. Good tires need not be expensive; do your research and you’ll find plenty of tires that offer excellent grip at a much more moderate price than you might expect.

Racing Brake Pads



It might seem counterintuitive to the uninitiated, but the faster you can stop, the faster you can go. Better brakes resist fading from repeated use and allow you to stay on the power longer before you brake for a curve. Racing brake pads come in different compounds; some work well only when really hot, while others are more tolerant to broader temperature ranges. Don’t just buy the most aggressive pads you can get — they may provide little stopping power when cold. Instead, do some research and then shop for the best price on the type of pad you need.

High-temperature Brake Fluid



One you start to really use your brakes to their maximum potential, you’re going to start generating very high brake temperatures — high enough, perhaps, to boil the fluid in the lines. Boiling fluid creates air bubbles, which, unlike the fluid... [Read More]

10 More Future Collector Cars That Are Affordable Now
Jun 08, 2016 - 10:51 AM - by AutoGuide.com


It’s a bit of a guessing game as to which cars will be collectible in the future, though there are certainly factors that let us take a guess.

Rarity, sentiment, power or, sometimes, just plain failure can all be clues to future collector cars.

After compiling an original list of future collector cars that are affordable now, here are 10 more cars we think people will want to see at cruise-ins of the future.


Buick Reatta



Buick spent years trying to shake its old-man’s-car image, and the idea of a two-seater — reportedly in the works since the 1970s — was one supposed salve. When it finally came to fruition in 1988, the largely hand-built Reatta featured such innovations as an early touchscreen control system. But as with other GM cars of the era, the styling and driving experience were watered down, and instead of selling 20,000 per year, GM sold just 21,000 over four years. Today, the Reatta marks an interesting chapter in Buick history, and with the simple and reliable 3800 V6 under the hood, they are fairly robust cars. Coupes sell in the $3,000 to $4,000 range with convertibles demanding a couple thousand more, though we’ve seen high-mileage droptops go for under $2,600.

Shop for your Buick Reatta here.



Chevrolet SS



The SS sedan may be the last of the Heavy Chevys, but it’s a memorable one, with a 415-horsepower Corvette engine driving the rear wheels and the option (in newer cars) for a six-speed manual transmission. The SS is still on sale, but since production began in late 2013, Chevrolet has sold fewer than 7,000, an infinitesimal number by General Motors standards and a good indicator of future collectability. There’s no reason not to buy one new; these cars aren’t exactly popular with the mass market, and you’ll find plenty of dealers offering good deals on eBay. But buying used is a good way to kiss off the depreciation blues: We’ve seen 20,000-mile examples going for less than $30k, as well as some really good deals on leftover 2015 models. Those cars present a unique opportunity to own a one-owner original — and that one owner is you.

The 14 Most Revolutionary Cars That Changed the World
Apr 06, 2016 - 11:43 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Quote:
One hundred and thirty years is a long time.

That’s the age, more or less, of the automotive industry and naturally, its history is steep. Thousands of makes and models have come and gone over the decades, but only a few have really revolutionized the way auto manufacturers do business.

These are the vehicles that made everyone sit up and take notice. The ones that reshaped the North American automotive landscape.

Narrowing the field down to just one vehicle per decade was not easy. We focused on cars, trucks and SUVs that changed the industry specifically in North America, although that doesn’t mean it had to specifically be a North American vehicle. So, here are the 14 vehicles that changed the world and a few honorable mentions as well.

Mar 28, 2016 - 7:51 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Quote:
The press days of the 2016 New York Auto Show are all wrapped up, and although it was a somewhat quiet show with no real blockbuster debuts, there were a handful of significant reveals here.

The New York event has a tough time because it is the first show after the Geneva Motor Show, where Bugattis and Lamborghinis come out to play. Geneva is a hard act to follow. But still, here are the Top 5 debuts from this year’s New York Auto Show.

The Javits Center will open its doors to the automotive media starting March 23, and we can expect a few surprises from popular automakers. There have already been rumors about possible debuts, while some automakers have sent out teasers of what we can expect to bow in New York.
