2012 Hyundai Equus: Video Review

My first video review for Living Vroom looks at the 2012 Hyundai Equus. Those shopping for a top-tier luxury sedan should definitely add the Equus to their short list, especially if seating for a fifth person is not a requirement.

A Fun Traveling Game

My wife, sister-in-law and I used to play a fun game on the road. It goes like this: pick two cars, and ask, “which would you rather drive?” Those answering have to pick one.

1970 Buick GSX Stage 1: Hemmings Classic Wheels

The 1970 Buick GSX Stage 1 was one of the best–and last–true muscle cars.
