(Mega) Cooper Shows Tahoe Who’s Boss!

I’m a huge fan of the BMW built Mini Cooper. My mom has a Type S and there’s very few cars I would feel as safe putting her in. As a bonus, it’s her all time favorite car she’s ever owned (and my parents have owned almost 45 cars in almost 50 years of marriage) and I can’t blame her, the car is a hoot! However, many have questioned how safe the car actually is due to its pint sized chassis. The following pictures should allay any ¬†worries about how safe the Mini Cooper really is: Read More »

Cars That Will Never Be Driven As They Were Meant: Lauren Conrad’s Audi R8

Another story from the trashy gossip file brings us this picture of The Hill‘s Lauren Conrad in West Hollywood yesterday, showing off her brand new $118,000 Audi R8. There have been rumors Lauren makes approximately $75,000 per episode, which means she “acted” a full 2 hours worth of air-time to score the sexy Audi (and pay for the taxes, fuel, purse to go along with the car). Say what you will about the fake reality life, she’s driving an R8 and most of us are not. If nothing else, the next owner can probably be safe in knowing the car wasn’t abused, other than perhaps excessive mocha-lattes in the cup holders. Read More »

How Did This One Get Past Us? Flash Of Genius Movie Review

This evening I was talking with my in-laws about their anniversary celebrations and they went to see a movie. One particularly noteworthy for an automotive website. Flash of Genius is a new film starring Greg Kennear and is the story of Robert Kearns, the inventor of the intermittent windshield wipers for the automobile. It’s a story of basic American inginuity and greed of automobile corporations who refused to give proper credit and royalties to someone whom they considered “small potatoes” and could ignore. Working in his basement, Kearns devises the first intermittent wiper from off-the-shelf components and tested it in a fish tank. In 1967 he patented the idea. He later demonstrated the concept to Ford executives, but wouldn’t tell them how it worked until he had a deal. After Ford ripped it off and reneged on the deal, he sued in them in 1978 and Chrysler for similar reasons in 1982. After numerous lawsuits and counter suits, Ford lost. The court said Ford’s infringement was not deliberate, and Ford agreed to settle with Kearns monetarily for $10.2 million with an agreement of no further appeals (and no admission of wrongdoing). It wasn’t until 1992 that the Chrysler verdict was decided. The initial Chrysler court decision was challenged and eventually went all the way to the Supreme Court who ruled in 1995 against Chrysler. They were evetually ordered to pay Kearns $18.7 million (with interest). By 1995, after spending over $10 million in legal fees, Robert Kearns received approximately $30 million in compensation for the work he completed on the intermittant windsheild wiper. Read More »
