A lesbian icon from day one, the Subaru Forester gets the kind of makeover that doesn’t get in the way of its virtues, says Gaywheels.com’s Marty Padgett. If a car can be shorthand for the lesbian community, that car is the Subaru Forester. Willing to tackle all sorts of dicey … Continue reading
The Detroit GLBT newspaper (Between the Lines), the GLBT community center (Affirmations), and General Motors’ GLBT employee resource group (GM PLUS) are playing matchmaker at Detroit’s Gay Pride celebration by getting in gear for a dating experience like no other with “Dating in the Fast Lane!”
Of all the critiques over the years, the one that bothered me the most was the fact that we didn’t have a consistent female voice on the site. It hasn’t been for lack of trying. I had looked high and low for a talented lesbian writer that could speak intelligently about cars and trucks. That dry spelled ended in October of last year when I met Michele Fleury on Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles.
Ford set out to re-create the family vehicle and from a design point of view, they’ve certainly done their homework. This vehicle is totally unique in a sea of “me too” crossover vehicles. The two-box shape and unique exterior design details give us a modern interpretation of the classic “woody” wagon. The availability of a contrasting roof color allows you to create your own color combination similar to MINI and the chrome treatment of the grill and tailgate further differentiate it from anything else on the road.

I’m in stunning Boulder, CO as a guest of Volkswagen to drive the 2009 VW Tiguan. “Tiguwhat?” you might be saying to yourself. Don’t worry, you’ll get used to the name. The Tiguan is the first compact SUV from VW to hit our shores and they are promising that it is “the GTI of Crossovers”. With a 200 HP 2-liter turbo engine and an available 6-speed manual in the base trim level, it seems to have the prerequisites. The question is, has VW been able to translate their sporty driving experience into a compact SUV? That’s what we are here for.
Want something topless to drive for summer? You might assume that convertibles will chomp a huge chunk from your wallet, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are a handful of snappy, great-looking, and entertaining convertibles that you can buy for less than $30,000. Even better — most of them will get more than 20 miles per gallon on the highway, making that long-distance cruise even more affordable.
