JFK Lincoln Continental Not What it Once Was

The 1961 Lincoln Continental that carried President John F. Kennedy to his death proved the last and the first of two eras of presidential limousines. With the 50th anniversary of the assignation President John F. Kennedy in Dallas approaching, many Americans still are left wondering. Did the Warren Commission get it right? Or were there really two shooters on the grassy knoll that November day in 1963?

Honor America’s Military Veterans by Donating your Old Ride

Help America’s military veterans by donating your old car to the Purple Heart Cars program. Today, E3 Spark Plugs joins all of America in honoring those who have sacrificed their time, efforts and lives to defending our country in the military. Veteran’s Day has its roots in Armistice Day, created in November 1919 to honor those who served in World War I, then known as “The Great War.” The war officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919. But fighting had ceased seven months earlier when an armistice (a temporary ceasefire) between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. So, November 22, 1918 is widely considered the end of “the war to end all wars.” Said...

Part Motorcycle, Part Horse, All Crazy but Kind of Cool – Toyota’s FV2 Concept Set to Steal the Show in Tokyo

Toyota’s FV2 concept rides like a high-tech horse. The annual Tokyo Motor Show, slated for November 21-December 1, is known for showcasing some of the most innovative and downright oddest concept vehicles. And this year, Toyota’s FV2 concept is sure to turn heads, E3 Spark Plugs’ techs predict. Essentially, it’s designed as a street-legal, four-wheeled segway – and potentially an answer to a troubling trend for automakers. In Japan and elsewhere, consumers are increasingly disinterested in driving, in large part because tight economies and job shortages are mean people are giving up their vehicles, opting for public transportation instead, or choosing more affordable rides. If the FV2 makes to production, it may just be a viable option for cash-strapped...

Well, thanks to a handful of persistent visionaries working to create the world’s first widely marketable flying car, we may be closer to a Jetsons-like daily scenario than ever.

Proprietor Paul Moller says the FAA has cleared his company to test the Moller Sky Car without a tether on June...
