automobile : of, relating to, or concerned with self-propelled vehicles or machines (typically on land) — Webster

OneLook, Free Dictionary, Wiktionary, Urban Dictionary


Roget’s II (, Merriam-Webster Thesaurus, Visuwords


Car is a wheeled, self-powered motor vehicle used for transportation and a product of the automotive industry. Most definitions of the term specify that cars are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels with tires, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car. In that year, German inventor Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Cars did not become widely available until the early 20th century. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Cars were rapidly adopted in the United States of America, where they replaced animal-drawn carriages and carts, but took much longer to be accepted in Western Europe and other parts of the world. — Wikipedia

    by etahaney on November 17, 2018 at 3:01 am

    When we last tested a Toyota Corolla, we found it slow and outdated. It wasn’t a bad car, though. Just badly in need of a redesign. Well, the long-awaited redesign is finally here, and we have to say, we like what we see. If you’re interested in the 2020 Toyota Corolla when it goes on sale...

    PALM SPRINGS, California — There is no cooler way to jump-start the weekend than by browsing a parking lot filled with cars that most folks can only dream of. I spent Friday morning at day one of McCormick’s 65th Annual Classic Car Auction in the fabulous Palm Springs. This three-day auction in the Sonoran Desert...

  • Rennsport Reunion VI as Seen Through Film
    by cgolden on November 16, 2018 at 10:52 pm

    Don’t adjust your monitor—these pictures are supposed to look grainy and washed out. Well, maybe not “supposed to.” The effect is the byproduct of using a double-stroke Leica M3 with a collapsible Summicron 50mm f/2 lens that has been untouched and unserviced since the 1950s. While I was running around Rennsport Reunion VI with my... The post Rennsport Reunion VI as Seen Through Film appeared first on Automobile Magazine. […]

  • First Drive: 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition
    by esegura on November 16, 2018 at 1:50 pm

    PUEBLA, Mexico — As I’m writing this, there’s a question lingering in my mind: Why didn’t Volkswagen go out with a bang by creating a truly special homage to the classic Beetle as a way of properly saying auf wiedersehen to one of its most treasured nameplates? Instead, it’s sending the Bug off with a whisper... The post First Drive: 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition appeared first on Automobile Magazine. […]
