Racing Legend Denise McCluggages Chooses Her Dream Car: An Old Suzuki?
In a feature column in the Wall Street Journal racing pioneer Denise McCluggage relates, “Of all the automobiles I’ve owned over my lifetime, I never imagined that for 20 years I would live with a car like the Suzuki Sidekick, or that I would love it so much.” Throughout the years McCluggage has owned an Alfa Romeo, a Porsche, a Jaguar, an MG, and a Ferrari.
Oh yes, and a Suzuki Sidekick. She bought the Sidekick in 1993 because she likes four-wheel drive and it’s mountainous and snowy where she resides in new Mexico. McCluggage concludes, “I like small cars that make my garage look big. There was never any reason to buy another car. It was one of the best of its kind, and it still is. The license plate reads “PODNAH,” like “partner”. It’s become my Sidekick – in more ways than one.” Are you currently driving your favorite vehicle? What’s your story of why?
BMW has come up with a solar carport in which to park the new i3 and the soon to come i8 electric vehicles. BMW is unveiling this one of a kind auto accessory as part of the official launch of the i8 in Los Angeles, California. This new carport concept follows previous strategies by BMW to punch up its “i” sub-brand, which uses electric power. This new design features a framework making use of bamboo and sports glass-on-glass solar modules mounted on the roof. It’s designed to work in conjunction with BMWs i Wallbox Pro.
