Falconer Car Lovers: Why is the Accord the Most-Stolen Car?

Falconer Car Lovers: Why is the Accord the Most-Stolen Car?

Millions of Americans love the Honda Accord. And so do car thieves. In fact, over 50,000 Accords were stolen last year - some right here in the Jamestown area. Why does this model rank high on the list of most-stolen cars year after year? It seems the Accord is a victim of its own popularity. (This also applies to another frequently-stolen Honda, the Civic.) The perennial popularity of the Accord impacts theft rates in at least three ways: 1. The sheer number of Accords on the road compared to other cars delivers relatively more opportunity for theft. It is unclear just how many Accords are in use, but according to Honda spokesman Chris Naughton, over the last 30 years, Honda has ... read more

Car Talk: How Smart Can a Car Be?

When it comes to new products, "smart" is the new must-have feature for many New York people. Smart homes, smartphones, smart televisions and so on, but what about smart cars? How smart can a car be?

I-86 Truck & Auto Repair Fun Stuff: Parallel Park or Drive Around the Block?

Occasionally, the team at I-86 Truck & Auto Repair discusses parallel parking - a topic which can elicit strong sentiments among Falconer drivers. If you own a car, at least one point in your life you have probably been in a situation where you have had to parallel park or take the chance on finding a closer or easier parking spot to manage. Which one do you choose? Take, for instance, someone who grew up in a rural community and was spoiled with ample parking. These individuals often aren’t accustomed to a 7-point turn in order to fit into a spot. In their hometown, chances are they could find a much easier pull-in spot not far from the undesirable space that they wanted to av ... read more

What is the Fastest Car on the Road?

What is the Fastest Car on the Road?

Speed limits don’t apply to what we’re going to be talking about today; the world’s speediest cars! Let's focus on the top five production autos that can be purchased and are actually street legal. Faster than NASCAR and Indy Speeds One extraordinary fact about this listing is that if the top speed of the automobile is anything less than 240 mph, it didn’t make the cut. As a point of reference, 240 mph is zippier than NASCAR and Indy speeds. Let’s see what automobiles were able to push their top speed over 240 mph to make the roster. Too Fast for the Autobahn Coming in at #5 with a top speed of 248 mph is the Saleen S7 Twin Turbo. The Saleen S7 was the first American mid-engine supercar. Its 750 horsepower engine will get you to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. Although this is ... read more

Auto Fun: What is Your Favorite Classic Car?

Car enthusiasts love highlighting "classic cars," though not everyone can agree on which cars fall into this renowned category.

Classic cars are where it all started, from the huge engined muscle cars to the first Italian supercars. In today’s article we’re going to take a look at a few of our favorite classic cars! Let’s start with the oldest, the 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing. When this stunner made its debut, it was the fastest production car available at the time. The gull win ... read more
