This blog will expand on themes and topics first mentioned in my book, "The Automobile and American Life." I hope to comment on recent developments in the automobile industry, reviews of my readings on the history of the automobile, drafts of my new work, contributions from friends, descriptions of the museums and car shows I attend and anything else relevant to those interested in automobiles and auto history.

What Every Car-lover Wants -- A New Garage Off limits to the Wife
Hi folks -- so Ed's new garage is almost 100% done. A new residence for his Cougar, and possibly the Karmann-Ghia convertible of his dreams.And a cave for books and tools, along with Ed.
Ed really enjoyed working with the contractor and being around the entire construction process. Still, I can't believe he relished spending the money. Normally dust flies when he opens his wallet (just a joke, Ed).
