There is some serious strategic thinking going on these days at Ford. I covered one example of that in my March review of the 2021 Mustang Mach-E. Now comes the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport Outer Banks 4X4.

I have written before about the proposed two-way “cycle track” planned for the north side of Almond Avenue – the Los Altos High School side – surmising that it was perhaps the least-bad alternative to providing a safe route for students. However, Jennifer Granath’s letter to the editor in th…

Eleven years ago – when to most people Tesla was just the name of a rock band or the guy whom Edison ripped off – Nissan took a big leap with one of the earliest mass-produced electric vehicles of the modern age: the 2010 Leaf.
