2017 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring AWD

  • Written by Julie Boselly

We always enjoy driving the CX-5 line. Mazda builds a solid vehicle and adds plenty of features so you feel like you’re getting your money’s worth. With a base starting price of $24,045, there’s sure to be a model to fit most budgets.

There’s no feeling sluggish with the 187 horsepower 2.5L engine. It’s not a sportscar, but it is certainly powerful to pull out in traffic and feel like you’re quickly at speed.

2018 Acura TLX A-SPEC

  • Written by By Julie Boselly with some assistance from Jack Unruh
Acura has always been known for well-crafted cars, and the 2018 TLX lives up to its reputation. With an interior that is in (almost) every way user-friendly, and an exterior that is incredibly pleasing to look at, this sedan does not disappoint. The lack of excitement and sportiness that the A-SPEC package promises make the price tag seem a little far-fetched though.

Classic Car Corner - Studebaker

  • Written by Tom Berg, Windermere

Good news---bad news:  I finally got around to selling a car!  I’ve always said that I like to drive my cars and I finally had to concede that I was no longer able to drive each one of them enough to even keep them running.  I now know how many is too many so I parted with my 1962 T-bird.  It was a great car, good driver and very dependable but something had to go so I took it to the Lucky Collector Car Auction at Tacoma’s LeMay Marymount Event Center and got what I needed to out of it.  Someone got a pretty nice car.  So how long did I last until another car came along?  I must admit not very long at all.  About two weeks later I was surfing through Craigslist under Studebaker just to see what was listed and a car I was familiar with was now for sale.  Several years ago I stopped by the Saturday afternoon car gathering at back of McDonald’s in Clearview, Wash.  I happened to be driving my Studebaker Grand Tourisimo Hawk and I saw an empty parking space next to another Studebaker.  Studebakers are not all that common so I thought it would be cool to have two of them side by side so I pulled in next to it.  The other Studebaker was a great looking 1957 President Broadmoor 4 door wagon in Apache red and Arctic white.  I talked to the owner for awhile and learned the entire history of the car. I was really impressed and thought I would see if I could find one someday for myself.  I never found another one anywhere in the United States and darned if this one didn’t show up on Craigslist right after I sell a car.  I knew immediately it was the same car I had seen years before and I knew I was going to have to buy it so I did.

Classic Car Corner - More Trucks

  • Written by Tom Berg, Windermere

MORE TRUCKS. In my most recent column I noted that I had just bought two Willys trucks and was building another roof to cover more cars so I thought I was done buying for now.
