(Full Disclosure: Ford brought me to Oregon to test drive the Explorer, and eat and stay on the company’s dime.) What Is It?

Uber’s fleet of self-driving cars in Pittsburgh are super exciting for anyone interested in the future of transportation—but they could come at a huge risk for passengers riding in the vehicles.

Baseball may be the great American pastime, but as exemplified by today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe TT, The Ephesian philosopher Heraclitus is quoted as saying that “the only constant in life is change.” He was also known as the “weeping philosopher” due to his inability to change his long-lingering depression. Advertisement Much has changed since Heraclitus’ days, Case in point, yesterday we looked at a 1977 Mustang II coupé, a representative of the model’s first major overhaul, and one that is to this day considered less than successful and a bit of the red-headed stepchild of the Mustang line. Nice as it was, not even an amazingly orange and plaid interior could muster much enthusiasm for the car’s $18,700 price.
