Sure, been there done that. Bugatti Chiron? Old news, saw it a while ago. I know there’s a ton out there I have yet to see, but sometimes you need a good reminder of just how true that statement is. If you’re like me and want to check out something besides your average muscle car and hot rod show, head down to Nashville sometime and prepare to be amazed.

  • In Car Years
    Imagine a world in which Henry Ford had gone from madman tinkering in his garage to a household name with more than 25 assembly lines producing household vehicles for the American people with such ease that a company which had originally produced just a few cars a day did not even notice the one millionth mile marker.

  • Ride-Sharing Apps Lyft Congestion in an Uber Way
    Nashville is not the first small city to turn down such transit initiatives, meaning it will not be the only small city to regret such a decision in the next decade, when booming development and the related ubiquity of traffic and ride-sharing apps create an impossible to untangle web of downtown congestion without reprieve.
