We’re aware of the login issues and have sicced IT on the case. Maybe you think we’re not aware, but that’s because sometimes we have trouble logging in, too.

We’re working on it. Please be patient while we get the site back to full speed.

Yes, we await your wrath in the comments section. Rather than take time out of our day to satisfy head office’s wish for some holiday gift ideas — a concept you’re no doubt thrilled with — we decided to let someone else do the work. Thankfully, there’s no scented oil in sight (though motor oil and other fluids does make a good gift; I’ve received a 4.4-liter jug under the Christmas tree more than once).

Instead, what we have here is a rare thing. Some pretty good shopping ideas for a classic car lover that doesn’t leave us squirming. Happy head office, happy staff, and hopefully not-too-perturbed reader. You just know there’ll be another one come Boxing Day. We’re already taking bets! – Steph

All-new 2018 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon

Here at The Truth About Cars, we’d be doing our readers a disservice if they weren’t given an opportunity to chime in about, well, pretty much everything. This is another opportunity to have your voice heard.

In addition to our webpage content — news, reviews, features, rants, and more rants — we’re adding a regular segment on our YouTube page. What’s that? You don’t visit our YouTube page? Well that needs to change, and you can start by taking a look at this. Read More >

Hello out there in TTAC land,

My name is Tim Healey and I am the new managing editor for The Truth About Cars.

That’s a strange thing to type, but it’s true. Pretty cool.

You probably don’t know much about me. I’ve not written for TTAC nor am I a well-known commenter. I have freelanced for other automotive sites, so perhaps you’ve seen my byline there. I’ve also been in this business for around a decade, so my name may be familiar to you.

Up here in Canadia, home of your humble associate editor, today marks the country’s Civic Holiday — a day where Canadianites from far and wide bundle into the country’s best-selling car (20 years running) and head to Alliston, Ontario.

Why Alliston? Honda, silly.

As laid out by our forefathers (they reached an accord), the Civic Holiday unites countrymen in their love for Japanese engineering, high-revving four-cylinders, and mods, mods, mods. At 6 p.m., we assemble in the parking lot of the Alliston plant to mark the return of the Civic hatch, the volume knob, and give thanks for the Type R, so long denied to us by the powers that be in Tokyo. There’ll be Labatt 50 on tap and government-mandated Uber rides.

Actually, it’s just a simple mid-summer holiday that doesn’t correspond with a similar day in the United States — and a rather scattershot one at that. Still, we’re planning to rest up, tip a glass to Archibald J. Civic, and return tomorrow with all the things you need to know to live an informed, fulfilled life. Until then, here’s another Civic.

Dave Zuckowski, Hyundai

There’s room at the top at Hyundai Motor America after the sudden firing of CEO David Zuchowski, insider sources claim.

According to Automotive News, Zuchowski, who joined the company as sales chief in 2007 before taking the top job two years ago, didn’t achieve internal sales targets. As such, he’s reportedly out the door, replaced by an interim leader.

It might be hard finding someone to replicate Hyundai’s sizzling post-recession sales performance. Read More >

Ever since a data breach left user accounts vulnerable to attack a couple of months ago, VerticalScope has been going through each one of its properties and resetting user passwords.

Normally, this reset would result in an email being sent to the user notifying them of that fact. However, some of our more prolific members have decided to provide email addresses that simply don’t exist.

I’m here to help.

Hey, a banner ad!

Over the last few months, the number of comments chiding TTAC’s website performance has grown and grown. Slow page loading times, browser crashes, and comments sucked into the ether seem to be the daily norm.

As Nat King Cole once sang, That Ain’t Right, and I’d like more than anything to fix the issues beleaguering the site and your experience with it.

In order to do that, I need your help.

Let’s Make TTAC Great Again.

This weekend coming is supposed to be dedicated to our Headdress-in-Chief Sajeev Mehta as he celebrates his 10-year anniversary with TTAC. Unfortunately, a lot of things have happened since announcing our shindig, and we have to postpone it to a later date.

That might actually work to everyone’s benefit though.

Find a new newsbot, of course.

Road Construction Ahead sign

Hey new folks crawling through TTAC in the middle of the night. Are you trying to sign up to post a comment and the website is saying “You Shall Not Pass”? Don’t worry. This is a planned signup outage due to … reasons.

For the rest of you who already have commenter accounts: If all goes as planned, we will have a nice surprise for you tomorrow morning. No, I am not going to tell you what it is, but feel free to put on your tinfoil hats and come up with incredible, incendiary conspiracy theories in the comments.

TTAC YouTube Videos

TTAC hit 1,000 subscribers on YouTube today and it’s all thanks to our man Alex L. Dykes, who single-handedly puts together some great videos, and to those of you who’ve chosen to show your support with clickvotes.

If you haven’t subscribed, why haven’t you subscribed yet? Don’t you want us to make videos? Come on, people. Do it for Alex. Do it for TTAC. Do it so we can justify doing more than one video a week.

Cold Sunset Over Italy Circa March 2015 LQ

Over three years ago, I contacted Jack via private message on Facebook with a question:

Would my skills as a fashion blogger be of any interest to TTAC?

A few months had passed since I was let go (with everyone else) from my previous – and only – full-time job, and I wanted to take my writing to the next level by breaking into journalism, one way or another. Jack brought me aboard, and my journey began in April of 2012.

Nearly two years ago – just after Jack and Derek took over TTAC from ousted editor-in-chief Bertel Schmitt – Jack asked if I was in a place in life where I could start writing again; I disappeared during the summer of 2012, though I did keep busy in the interim. He also informed me I would be paid to write for the blog if I came back. Thus, with “Posse On Broadway” booming from the trunk, I returned in October of 2013.

Alas, all good things must come to an end.

The long version of the story?
