The first time you hear the name “Buckminster Fuller” you probably picture a guy with inch-thick glasses who probably holds the world’s record for getting wedgies from the football team. At least that’s the character I imagined. In reality, however, the fellow who went by that moniker was one of the most brilliant visionaries ever to walk the earth, and the vehicle he built in the 1930s is a testament to his brilliantly oddball ideas.

In 1969, GM released the Blazer into the Chevy lineup, making it the smallest full-size SUV Chevy made at the time. With a full convertible removable top available until 1975, the Blazer and its counterpart the GMC Jimmy, soon became instantly recognizable among enthusiasts alike.
Our friend Tim has been a hardcore SUV enthusiast since day one. And his ’74 K5 Blazer is the epitome of the Blazer that Chevy had in mind from the beginning.
We’ve already heard plenty of news/rumors regarding the upcoming 2015 Ford Mustang. A four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, a brand-new Evos-inspired body style, and of course, plenty of negative feedback from disgruntled “aficionados.”
We showed you last week how one Spyker found another, and it was love at first sight. Rob Spyker- a New Zealand native and distant relative of the Spyker automotive family- spent a few years searching for a project that he and his family could enjoy together. It only seemed like a perfect fit then when he got word of the chassis of a 1907 Spyker sitting lifeless in someone’s shed.
After over 10 years of work, countless hours of searching for parts and a few road blocks later, Rob and his family finally can show off the finished product. And it’s a gorgeous piece of work.
If the folks over at DreamWorks have anything to say about it, the Fast and Furious franchise is all but dead in the water. With the upcoming Need for Speed film lurking on the horizon (set for sometime in 2014), the production team is pulling out all the stops to make one grandiose production.
It’s a comeback story worthy of a Rocky remake. I’m referring to the way that Cadillac has returned from the brink of ruin over the past few years. Often, these rise-like-a-phoenix stories are nothing more than marketing hype, but this time it’s for real. Not only is the iconic luxury automaker paying its own bills, but it is also competing successfully against heavyweights such as BMW and Mercedes. For example, in 2011 Kelley’s Blue Book awards, Cadillac took top honors in three major categories: Best Exterior Design, Best Comfort Brand, and Best Interior Design.
Well folks, after a bit of a hiatus, the BoldRide weekly recap is back! Why did we take a brake from it? Frankly, there just wasn’t an abundance of breaking news worth recapping. But, we’ve got plenty of news to rife through this week! So buckle in, grab that coffee, a donut (burnout or otherwise), and check out the biggest stories of the week from BoldRide!
Yeah, so I could do a Google search and come up with five lame things you should do to your car before you go anywhere this summer. (“Check your tire pressure!” says Kiplingers. Thanks for that hard-hitting communique, People Who Get Paid More Than Me!) Instead, this is a list of things that should make some kind of a difference when the backs of your legs are stuck to the vinyl this summer.
It’s an old dream of automotive designers: a true one-size-fits all vehicle that can be all things to all drivers. This ideal machine can haul heavy loads, climb rocks in the outback, take the kids to soccer practice, and even turn heads during a night on the town. And, like most ideals, it has proven easier to dream about than to achieve.
Well what do you know, it’s everyone’s favorite holiday, National Donut Day. We hope you’re all stocked up to the brim with sprinkles and chocolate and vanilla glaze galore. Us personally, we like a different kind of donut. Burnt on the inside, with more than a hint of tire smoke. Delicious.
And in honor of this national holiday, Lexus and Chevy are frying up some donuts of their own, via the 580-hp ZL1 and an LFA with LPGA pro golfer Natalie Gulbis at the helm. We just can’t decide which one tastes better…
