Blame California: Why You Can't Have The TracKey For Your BOSS 302

For many people who have bought the BOSS 302 Mustang, they have been wondering when they would receive their TracKey.  It is the magic red key, that changes 200 parameters in the cars systems to provide maximum performance.  It is "For Off Road Purposes Only", but yet CARB, the California Air Resources Board, has not signed off on it.  Ford can not guarentee that the TracKey does not affect emissions, the engine's durability or mess with on-board computer diagnostics.

Given how well California's government works, it may never happen, and once again, the People's Republic of Kaliforna fowls it up for the rest of us.  In a responce someone made this brilliant video which plays on the meme of changing the subtitles to a particular scene in the movie "Downfall"

Have a look and be prepared to be in tears with laughter!

2011 Old Car Festival At Greenfield Village

We were out at Greenfield Village over the weekend for their annual Old Car Festival.  You get to see some really neat stuff from the beginning of the 20th Century and some years into it.  This year though they had a 1770 Fardier de Cugnot which was pretty amaizing to see and watch.  Thier were also replicas of the first Daimler car and motorcycle along with Henry Ford's famous 999 car that he set world speed records in on a frozen lake.

We shot a ton of pictures and we have then for you in a slide show below, enjoy!

Autoline After Hours Tonight With D. Mark Trostle, Head Designer, Roush

This week we're asking: why did Jack Roush hire a full-time designer? And, we think we've got the perfect man to answer that question: Roush's new head of design, D. Mark Trostle, a man with an impressive performance car pedigree. He's designed such cars as the Buick GNX and Chevy SSR as well as the renowned Speed33 Roadster -- so what's going down at Roush? In addition, we'll be discussing the news as usual. Is Toyota playing it too safe with the Camry's new styling? Is the Cadillac Ciel concept a hint at the brand's upcoming flagship sedan? Why are Ford and Toyota teaming up on hybrid development? To discuss all of this and more, John McElroy is joined in studio by the one and only AutoextremistPeter De Lorenzo.

Reviewed: 2012 Ford Focus Titanium

Back in January we had the opportunity to head out to Los Angeles for the press launch of the 2012 Ford Focus and came away very impressed with the car.  However, we only got to spend a couple of hours with the car, we wanted to know, it those good first impressions would hold out on a longer review.

So, did we end up liking the Focus as much as we did in California?  How did it stack up against the Hyundai Elantra? Have a look at the video to find out!
