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.

Wheels for my Mercedes 380 SL R107
The above photo is of a 1979 M-B 450 SL R107. See those wheels? They really look terrific, and those are what I eventually want on my 1980 380 SL! That mesh look is perfect, like the appearance I had on my 1990 Mustang convertible years ago.
