Those of us who were children of the 1980s and had a Midwestern experience at some point might remember multi-fuel-capable GM trucks. The one summer that I spent working a seasonal job in Colorado, there was another employee from Nebraska who had a Chevy pickup modified to run on gasoline and propane. The details of how the air-fuel mix was adjusted for switchover escape me, but the concept was to save money at the pump and extend overall range. In the Eighties, it was a long way between service stations in western Nebraska.
If your car gets swarmed by zombies, would you know what to do? While that question may seem far-fetched, Halloween car safety is an integral part of ensuring every little vampire and mummy gets home safely after trick-or-treating.
Chevrolet and OnStar are sharing Halloween safety tips and three “Hey, they could happen!” OnStar calls for encounters with monsters and other creepy characters.
Chevrolet teamed up with film director Spike Lee to create an ad spot starring teen athlete Mo’Ne Davis, which aired Tuesday during the first game of the World Series. Davis is a role model to an untold amount of girls all over the United States, but she’s a reminder to all of us that anything is possible.
The 13-year-old athlete and her 70-mile per hour fastball wowed America this summer. Many people know about her on-field accomplishments, but her story off the field celebrates life’s possibilities not only for herself, but also for millions of girls like her.
It’s back to school time. Learning is in full swing on campus when the bell rings. And after hours, there’s a full slate of extracurricular activities. Unfortunately, with the state of educational backing in many districts, only the essentials get funded. Many programs could be at risk. That’s why outside resources are vitally important. In that spirit this last September, Buick started a full-scale initiative to help local high schools across the country raise money for after-class programs.
You knew that once you had a child nothing would ever be the same. But in your wildest dreams, did you ever imagine strapping on a breast pump in a car or trying to sneak bottles of pumped milk through airport security? I did!
Do you remember when you first learned to drive? You probably focused 110% of your attention on the road as you gripped the wheel at 10 and 2 with nervous, white knuckles. And, strangely enough, you probably knew the rules of the road much better then than you do now.
Why? Because your driver’s license test depended on it.
But in the passing years, you’ve likely become much more comfortable behind the wheel and you’ve probably let slide a few of the rules your driver’s ed teacher taught you way back when.
Realistically, some of those rules are a bit unnecessary, but there may be a few you’ve forgotten which would help you to be a better, safer driver. Read on to find out what they are.
There’s much to love about this adorable little car! Called the “Jolly,” and created in the late Fifties and early Sixties off the Fiat 500 and 600, this cute little convertible was originally modified by the Italian design house Ghia to be a luxury vehicle for wealthy Europeans and for export into the United States market.
It’s widely said that the Fiat 500 of 1957 was Italy’s answer to the Volkswagen Beetle. This modified little Fiat beach buggy may have been marketed worldwide as the Jolly, but it was best known in Europe as “La Spiaggina” -- a word loosely translated as something like "beach-ette." According to the MicroCarMuseum, the name “Jolly” also means "joker" in Italian, but also transates to something light, fun, funny and pretty in other languages.
Ask a driver how to control the air conditioning in their vehicle and it’s a safe bet you'll get an answer. Ask that same driver to identify life-saving dashboard warning signals and the chance of a clear answer drops significantly.
According to a recent survey conducted by Schrader International, a manufacturer of sensing and valve solutions, only four out of every ten drivers were unable to identify key dashboard warning icons.
Now that summer is here and our road trip vacations are underway, it is more important than ever for drivers to be familiar with their vehicle and the systems put in place to warn them of potential danger. When viewing dashboard icons -- and depending on the car you drive, you can see a lot of them -- here are a few things to keep in mind.
Every day, thousands of newborns around the nation leave hospitals and head home for the first time, making it a once-in-a-lifetime story to tell. While the law requires parents to have a suitable child safety seat, most people don’t think about the safety of the actual car driving them home.
Inspired by the real stories of New Yorkers going home with their newborns in taxis (an experience that does not legally require child safety seats), Mitsubishi launched its #FirstRide program in New York by giving three babies their inaugural ride home in one of America’s safest small SUVs, the 2014 Outlander, as part of Mitsubishi Motors’ “First Ride” program, which focuses on creating awareness and educating parents on child safety.
