The Teal Terror and our Dinoot J Series trailer are the focus of the latest installation of the Trailer Supported Adventuring series in OutdoorX4 magazine. Despite the fact the Suzuki is gone, it lives on in print. The Dinoot, however, is still safely parked under our carport.
You can check out the magazine at OutdoorX4.com and read the PDF there, too (starts on P. 60).

Well, it's technically a 1996 Daihatsu Midget II kei truck. Yes, the same one everyone drove in Gran Turismo. However, this one has been, well, customized to look like a 1935-1937 Ford

Some self-professed "car people" turn their nose up at our modified Toyota Yaris. Some 4x4 people think our mildly lifted Suzuki Sidekick is a joke.
We're all entitled to our opinions, but remember: We're all gearheads.
No matter what you drive, if you have a passion for automobiles, congrats: we are one in the same. You should respect people's automotive enthusiasm, regardless of make/model.

As you’ll recall, The Mitsubishi Mirage made a return to the U.S. market as a 2014 model. While it could be equipped with options like Bluetooth, cruise control, and a touchscreen infotainment system, the Mirage felt mostly unrefined and dated as we noted in our review. It did, however, deliver 44 MPG on the highway. There was a minimalist, simplistic quality to the Mirage that was somewhat endearing, but the Chevrolet Spark was fierce competition. Nonetheless, the Mirage sold better than most would’ve expected.

Ford has finally decided to jump into the subcompact crossover craze, and it's doing so with the EcoSport. The little EcoSport has been sold in other parts of the world since 2004, but is finally coming stateside. In fact, we saw these in New Zealand and Australia and can confirm they are a great size—not too big.

North America is in love with the crossover, or at least the idea of a crossover. Ideally, they're more rugged than a wagon, less truck-like than an SUV. And as we've seen, compact crossovers are selling like hotcakes. Small, slightly lifted hotcakes with additional plastic body cladding.
Now Chevy has decided to try something a bit different: A "trail-inspired" version of its front-wheel-drive subcompact Spark, which will be called the Spark ACTIV. The Spark already sells surprisingly well for a subcompact, so maybe a butched-up version will sell even better?
