Victory claims to be the fastest-growing motorcycle brand in the U.S. with its mid-year 2005 sales amounting to 51 percent over 2004. That may or may not be because Victory is the "new kid on the block" as far as American-produced motorcycles are concerned. Victory actually became the first new American brand of cruiser motorcycles in more than 60 years when it built the first V92C in 1998, on July 4 - and you can't get much more American than that. Victory is made by the motorcycle division of Polaris Industries, which is a $1.8 billion manufacturer of world-class ATVs, snowmobiles and utility vehicles, with more than 50 years of engineering and manufacturing experience.

The new Infiniti QX56 has all the content and more than enough of the gusto needed to play in the rarified atmosphere of the well-heeled off-roader. With the vast number of sport-utility vehicles available for purchase, it would seem as though the QX56 is just another player in an overcrowded category. Look more closely and you'll find that pickings are slim in the $50,000 (or thereabouts) XL-sized luxury-utility group: the Hummer H2; Lincoln Navigator; GMC Yukon Denali XL; Toyota Land Cruiser; and Cadillac Escalade.

gregs@herald-mail.com Vanilla ice cream and hot fudge, Ozzie and Harriet, coffee and donuts. A few perfect couples. Awesome motorcycles and sweet cars might be another fine pair, said Tom Ward, president of the Mid Atlantic Impala Association and director of the fledgling United States Muscle Car Federation, both based in Winchester, Va. "The lines get blurred, you know. It's bikes and cars, cars and bikes, they can coexist together," said Ward, 35. While Saturday was the fourth year for the Impala Association's car show, it was the first year that the show also boasted motorcycles.

Despite ever-inflating gas prices, there's still a hot market for full-size sport-utility vehicles that deliver plenty of power along with a full load of luxury amenities. Joining these colossus-class offerings later this year will be the Aspen, the first sport-ute to wear a Chrysler badge. Until now, parent DaimlerChrysler has let its Jeep and Dodge divisions do the talking when it comes to building and marketing off-road-capable machinery, even luxury sport-ute models. Adding Chrysler to the mix would seem to make sense given the amazing success of the 300 sedan and especially since the product planning types were able to build off an existing vehicle.

GREENCASTLE, PA. - Don Wolford estimates that his 30-year-old truck has crossed millions of miles, but it was on the back of another big rig that the Kenworth 900A returned to his Greencastle home on Thursday. The 1977 truck underwent a $50,000 makeover won in the Castrol Tection Extra Big Honkin' Truck Makeover contest and was unveiled at the Great American Trucking Show in August. Wolford flew to Mississippi beforehand to get a sneak peak at the work done by the Chrome Shop Mafia.
