Another woman bought car from metro salesman, never received title over a year later | FOX 4 Kansas City WDAF-TV

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Another woman said she was also the victim of the same used car salesman featured on FOX4 Problem Solvers two weeks ago.

Angela Thomas bought a 2006 BMW in November 2019 but has never been able to legally drive it. That’s because the man who sold it to her never gave her the title, she said.

“There were always excuses,” said Thomas, who had pretty much given up hope until she saw a story on FOX4 Problem Solvers featuring the same used car salesman that she said duped her — Greg Bolton.

Atlantic City Indoor Auto Racing events cancelled for 2021

The Atlantic City NAPA Auto Parts race weekend has officially become the fourth and final COVID-19 victim of the 2021 Indoor Auto Racing Championship Series fueled by VP Racing Fuels.

“It’s with great regret that we cancelled the fourth and final scheduled race on our indoor series

1982 Honda City Makes a Case for Minicars in America

From Car and Driver

From the August 1982 issue of Car and Driver.

Quick, Myrna, the Flit! It’s an infestation in the making. First the Medfly, now the minicar. The latest permutation of this important new species is the Honda City. With its front-fender mirrors posed ominously like antennae, it even looks like a Japanese Beetle.

This Honda is more than just an automotive insect, however. It could revolutionize the way America travels. Unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show last fall, the City earned universal acclaim for the way it fulfills its mission. That mission is easy to understand. If you examine the Honda City with historical perspective, you’ll see the Ford Model T far off in your time telescope. Like the Model T, the City is a minimal automobile designed strictly for utility.

Ford was able to sell its minimal car virtually without modification for nineteen years because
