2016 VW Beetle Convertible 1.8T Denim Edition Tested: Dress Your Fantasy in Denim

  1. “If you remember the ’60s, you weren’t really there.” That quote is attributed to a lot of folks who definitely were there, including rockers and acid-heads Grace Slick, Pete Townshend, Wavy Gravy, and Timothy Leary, but the earliest citation extant—1982—credits comedian Charles Fleischer. Conversely, those of us who remember the actual ’70s don’t need That ’70s Show reminding us of what we only wish could be forgotten, such as Whip Inflation Now buttons, lining up to buy gasoline, or watching yet another rerun of Gilligan’s Island because, no, James Hunt was not racing Niki Lauda live on cable.READ MORE ››

    The Dodge Durango R/T is the longer-wheelbase, slightly racier sibling to Jeep’sbetter-known Grand Cherokee. Named after a Colorado town boasting fewer than 17,000 residents and its own narrow-gauge railroad, the Durango has an interesting lineage.
