Finally it’s here: Sullivan’s casino opening

February 7, 2018

Courtesy of the Times-Herald Record: Signs, signs, everywhere the signs. Former Town of Thompson Supervisor Tony Cellini remembers them well. He first spotted all the “Casinos mean jobs” billboards, buttons and bumper stickers along Route 42 in 1963, driving his new Corvette Stingray from Port Jervis as he moved to Sullivan County. The county’s resorts had quietly begun their gradual d...Continue Reading

Chris Duplessis; off-road expert, iPhone hero

February 2, 2018

Courtesy of Road & Track: Just yesterday, we shared the tale of the Mercedes G550 4x4², the most unstoppable off-roader we've ever tested. During that test, we also discovered that the iPhone 8 might be the G550 4x4² of phones. Part of our test involved driving up and down a river, partly for photography, partly for shits and giggles. R&T.com contributor Roger Garbow was riding in ...Continue Reading

Off-Roading the Most Ridiculous Factory SUV on Four Wheels

February 1, 2018

Courtesy of Road & Track: Week With a Car is a recurring look into the garage and multiple outdoor parking spots of Sam Smith, R&T's globetrotting editor at large. Expect it to hold magazine test cars, vintage race cars, whatever he's driving that week. The form—everything from road diary to rambling brain dump—varies, but it's always interesting. It doesn't always make sense, but the...Continue Reading

Hellcat-powered Jeep launches (Quickly) at MMC

January 10, 2018

Courtesy of The Drive: People either get the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, or they don't—as Facebook commenters proved in our video from Monticello Motor Club of the madcap, 707-horsepower, Dodge Hellcat-powered Jeep. Either you think it’s awesome that a family-friendly Jeep can launch to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, and through a quarter-mile in 11.8 seconds (at 115 mph); or you wonder why anyone...Continue Reading

What’s More Fun on MMC’s Off-Road Course, a Truck or a UTV?

January 3, 2018

Courtesy of The Drive: Let's face it: The Ford F-150 Raptor really doesn't have any true competitors. The Ram Rebel may look the part, but it's not nearly as badass as the Baja-bred Blue Oval; on the flip side, while the Chevy Colorado ZR2 may be able to keep up off-road, it's at least one size too small to truly take on the full-sized Ford. No, to find something really capable of keeping up wi...Continue Reading

Trying to Make a PB+J On Our Off-Road Course

December 13, 2017

Courtesy of The Drive: Here's the second installment in our series in which video editor Erica Lourd attempts to make a sandwich while I drive like a jackass. The first was: a Caprese sandwich, around Lime Rock Park's autocross course, in a Subaru WRX; here, I'm behind the wheel of a Subaru Crosstrek, while Erica attempts to make a PB&J, as we fly up and down and over the off-road course a...Continue Reading
