Ford Motor Co. will unveil the much-anticipated 2021 Ford
Bronco in March and a smaller crossover SUV version called the Bronco Sport in
April, according to Automotive News.

The Bronco Sport will go on sale in late 2020.

The full-size Bronco—available as both a four-door and
two-door—won’t be available until early 2021, the report said.

Ford executives said at the National Automobile Dealers Association Show that they expect at least 200,000 in unit sales in 2021.

Ford revamped its accessories business following the launch of the 2019 Ford Ranger pickup, and as with that revamp, “Ford is planning an aggressive rollout of hundreds of Bronco accessories,” to coincide with the new Bronco launch, the Automotive News story said.

The Bronco, which Ford is positioning to compete with the Jeep Wrangler, is designed to be customizable. Like the Wrangler, it features a removable hard top and removable doors that can be stored in the vehicle’s cargo area.

Project Binky Gets An Engine Rebuild: Better Parts For More Boost!


Project Binky is at the bodyshop getting pretty, which is weird to say by the way, but while the bodyshop is slinging Bondo there is still plenty to do to get it ready to put back together. Before it went to the body shop all the components, wiring, suspension, and everything that could be removed, was. And now each system or component is being removed and rebuilt as needed. The last update had the guys doing cad plating, painting, and rebuilding of all the driveline components, and this time its all about horsepower. Yep, the turbocharged engine in this little bastard is getting some love and is being buttoned up so they can install it and make the noise. Well not that noise, but some noise. (Inside joke for Project Binky regulars.)

Honestly, I’m a little worried that the guys will get Binky together and start playing with it and forget all about showing us the finished project, mostly because that is something I could see myself doing. I would be seriously disappointed

The Nightmare Neon: A Rundown On The History Of The Chrysler PT Cruiser


I have an Army friend who bought one of these things to daily drive. She absolutely and utterly adored the car, painted blue, named “Scooter”. Yeah, it was named. I once semi-jokingly threatened to tow it away with my rust-riddled yet plenty violent 1973 Chevelle and sent that picture to her while she was off on some kind of training event. A few years later, she asked if I was willing to help fix this thing. If you haven’t had the joy of working under the hood of a Chrysler PT Cruiser, I’ll spare you the pain: DON’T. A normal human being’s hand does not fit. Sasquatch’s hand damn sure doesn’t fit. Simple jobs start with “drop the cradle”, it seems.

But I can knock the car all I want for being a bitch to work on, or being so sappily cute it was dorky, or being a Neon with a fashion sense. Truth be told, Chrysler sold the hell out of these things. Originally supposed to be a Plymouth before that nameplate was shoved off of a cliff

10 Best Engine Air Filters for Cars 2020 [Guide & Review]

An Engine air filter is that little component in your car which provides fresh and filtered air to your car’s engine.

You can think of it as lungs of a car whose job is to clean the atmospheric air from dust particles or other contaminations before it goes into the engine, which you can assume as the car’s heart. So that is to say that air filters are very important for your vehicle to run efficiently.

The air filter is a little piece of foam-like material which is permeable for air only and traps dust and debris and prevents it from getting into the combustion chamber. The filter resides in a box called the filter box, which keeps the filter in position, directly above the air intake hose. With time, air filters can get dirty due to the outside air filled with dust and other particles in the air.

In that case, your car will not perform as efficiently as it should and this means it’s time to either clean the filter or replace it.

Although cars come fitted with OEM filters, there are lots of high-quality aftermarket filters which can boost the performance of your car. We have done

Top 10 Best Car Air Fresheners 2020 – Review & Buyers Guide

4 Tips to consider when shopping a car air freshener

Air fresheners have been around for ages and come with a variety of brands, chemicals, and working mechanisms to choose from. It’s easy to get lost in the features when shopping for an appropriate odor-eliminating tool; here are four things to consider before concluding your purchase.

Type of air freshener

There are a variety of types of air fresheners on the market from the traditional aerosol air freshener to activated charcoal air fresheners, to essential oil diffusers all capable of removing odors and odor-causing agents. 

Each of these types uses a special technique of getting rid of odor, from masking scents to trapping odor-causing particles, to releasing negative ions. The type you choose should is ultimately determined by your needs and intended use case for the best results.

Scented vs. Fragrance-free

Most of the best car air fresheners come with a scent or variety of fragrances to choose from or have no fragrance. If you’ve got breathing sensitivities or conditions such as asthma, then you’d be better suited to the fragrant free as some of these scents can be overwhelming. 

Effectiveness

Of course, the first and foremost reason you want
