    The Friends of Eddie Coyle: A Clunker Goldmine

    Movies get shot in and around Boston all the time now, but in 1973, a movie shot in the Bay State was a rarity. Based on the awesome George V. Higgins novel of the same name, The Friends of Eddie Coyle was steeped in Boston lore and language, and it’s a crucible of clunker goodness...

    Cars of the Whitey Bulger Trial

    In and around the Boston area, the James “Whitey” Bulger Trial is captivating. It’s a real-life Goodfellas, just cast with actual thieves, drug dealers, murderers and general scumbags instead of actors.

    Mad Men and Mustangs: The Cars Missing from AMC’s Hit Series

    I’m an extremely late adopter of AMC’s swinging ‘60s series Mad Men, but I’ve spent the last few months getting myself caught up. While I was midway through Season 5, I heard Marc Maron’s interview with Dick Van Dyke on the WTF Podcast, and the iconic sitcom star — steeped in the design ethic of ...

    Cadillac CTS Coupe Wrapup

    I can’t say I don’t like the 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe, because in a lot of ways, I think it’s pretty sharp.
