The Bar and Shield guys (and gals, too) have done it again - come up with another winner. Actually, a couple of winners, and both in the Softail lineup: the FLSTN/I Softail Deluxe; and the FLSTSC/I Softail Springer Classic. Both bikes manage to reach into the motor company's rich past for styling cues while providing up-to-date technology for enhanced riding enjoyment and greater dependability. Both bikes also display their own specific features and points that draw different admirers.

MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - They just kept rolling in and rolling in. More than 2,000 motorcycle riders -- marking the biggest turnout in the 18th annual Operation God Bless America motorcycle ride from Greencastle, Pa., to Martinsburg -- streamed through the gates of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center near Martinsburg Sunday afternoon to raise money for veterans. "I've never seen so many motorcycles," said Dottie Hough, who oversees volunteer services at the veterans hospital. There were so many motorcycles that it took about an hour for the riders to get onto the grounds of the hospital along W.Va.

For Road King fans in the Harley camp, there's a new bike on the street. It's the Harley-Davidson FLHX Street Glide. At first, one might think of the FLHX as nothing more than a Road King Custom with a "Batwing," fork-mounted fairing, sporting a single headlight, but it's a lot more than that. To oversimplify, the Street Glide is a turnkey, custom, undressed version of the popular Road King Dresser. True, the mechanicals are shared with the Road King, with enhancements such as a 24 percent reduction in clutch effort.

"I wanted to get one of the first 50 but they were apparently really popular," he said.

Nissan is thinking big these days, unleashing bruiser trucks such as the full-size Titan pickup and Armada sport-utility. There was no surprise when Carlos Ghosn, Nissan Motor Co. president and CEO, announced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit that Nissan is building a bigger, more powerful 2005 Frontier compact pickup. "The Frontier is a real truck," Ghosn said. "For truck buyers who aren't quite ready for the full-size version, the Frontier has all the strength of the Titan, yet is a more affordable, more manageable package.

Simple, tasteful and elegant are words not normally associated with most cars built by North American automakers in the early 1960s. The revolutionary 1962 Pontiac Grand Prix can rightfully lay claim to those adjectives as it became a benchmark for style and sophistication. Before its arrival, the personal-luxury category was dominated and even outright owned by the second-generation Ford Thunderbird that was introduced in 1958. That year marked the beginning of the four-seater 'Bird, a larger but eminently more practical version of the two-seat original.

If you lived through the 1950s as did I, the Oldsmobiles were easy to spot. They were far more imposing than the typical Chevy, Ford and Plymouth, with massive grilles and bumpers that looked as though they could bash right through a brick wall and come out the other side completely unharmed, chrome glistening brighter than ever. The look, the rumbling sound emanating from the exhaust and the aura are what set these cars apart from the crowd. Back then, I had never thought Oldsmobiles were particularly attractive until the arrival of the 1960 models.

HUYETTS CROSSROADS - Some people might not get too excited about a sports car that maxes out at 20 mph. William "Butch" Rankin does. His ruby red "cartvette" crowns the fleet of golf carts he has refurbished in his hand-built shop on the grounds of his home in the Huyetts Crossroads area. "What I'm doing is a kind of art," said Rankin, 53. "This Corvette in particular is a showpiece. " Rankin spent nearly two months transforming a wrecked E-Z-Go golf cart into a pseudo-sports car that may never cross a green.
