Can a subcompact car dream of bigger things ? Some cars just dream bigger than others. Take Hyundai Accent. While it’s typically cross-shopped with sub-compacts like Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris, here’s the real story: Accent actually has more interior room than those cars’ larger siblings, Civic and Corolla. Accent is big on safety, too: Its long list of standard safety features includes a supplemental restraint system that keeps six airbags on guard to help protect you. Power? It’s got more horsepower than Toyota Yaris. Yet for all of its oversized accomplishments, Accent still sips fuel like a subcompact, with an EPA estimated rating of up to 36 miles per gallon (which bests the Honda Fit).1 And it’s backed by America’s Best Warranty, with a 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and five years of 24-hour roadside assistance.2 Of course, there is one thing you’ll find out about the Hyundai Accent that’s not very big at all: Its sticker price.

famous character Griso in the classic Italian tragedy, I Promessi Sposi (“The Betrothed,” published in 1824 by Alessandro Manzoni), it was explained. The story takes place in 1628-1630 in northern Italy (same region as Moto Guzzi’s Mandello del Lario operations) at the time of Spanish rule over the Duchy of Milan (Italy was still a group of feuding, independent city states, constantly changing hands until unified in 1861). The story is a classic because its characters still resonate today: An arrogant Spanish nobleman, Don Rodrigo, intends to have his way with the beautiful villager Lucia, who is engaged (betrothed) to young Renzo. Don Rodrigo’s chief henchman is Griso (“the gray one”), who, as a commoner, committed murder in broad daylight in the center of town. Griso avoids prosecution after he’s given protection, dressed in the livery of Don Rodrigo’s personal guards, a situation which demonstrates that both men are above the law. Although Griso’s kidnap attempt of Lucia fails, their escape divides the young lovers and the fictional portion of the tale (it’s partly history) covers the action during their years of separation. Think what sort of character might deserve the name Griso today. The well-groomed thug in the thousand-dollar suit? The Don’s consigliere? The celebrity’s private eye? You get the picture: Muscle with an over-the-top style. That name was an inspired choice, we’d say. Think of another bike that packs such ’tude in a look that doesn’t secretly try to imitate Milwaukee. Can’t? No, the Griso is Continental muscle, Armani style. Only an Italian could have fashioned such a coherent look that’s so outrageous in its individual details: Exhaust pipes 21⁄4" in diameter sweeping across to the left side with a gigantic conical muffler capped by a 63⁄4" grill that should guard the business end of jet turbine; a 67⁄8"gascap surround sized for an Indy car; massive 43mm forks inside 53mm stanchions; handlebars over an inch in diameter at the middle, giant brakes and bodywork with screened vents that play peekaboo like fishnet stockings, to name a few. Exquisite in the smallest detail, the effect gives people whiplash on the street. Definitely a custom. “Nice bike, what’s that?” we’d hear over and over again— coming from guys you’d guess would favor Harley-Davidsons over Japanese product—pretty much confirms that Moto Guzzi hit the demographic bull’s-eye with this one. Motorcycle companies everywhere would die for that reaction to one of their products. Okay, we’ve covered the most important part of this bike’s appeal—looks. But, like certain stylish cars that sell well in spite of...

West River Academy's Class of 2010 included 40 graduates from all over the world. While most were in the US, we also had 2 in China, 1 in Spain, 1 in Germany, 2 in Colombia, 7 in Chile, 1 in Taiwan, 2 in Korea and 1 in Japan. The ones in the picture were the 6 who chose to come to Grand Junction, Colorado to participate in the Commencement Exercises. And what was special for me was the graduation of my youngest daughter, Rachel (to my right in the photo). Each graduate gave a short speech, some with powerpoint, movie or musical presentations. Truly, each one was a valedictorian!
THE MR. GASKET STORY Back in 1964, Joe Hrudka was a drag racer in Northern Ohio who was looking to solve a problem that parts manufacturers had not addressed. Using his own 1957 Chevy drag race car as a test vehicle, he created a line of engine gaskets and fasteners proven to seal and withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and stresses created by high performance engines. This product line that was developed by a drag racer would evolve into a brand of legendary proportions over the next 50 years. Mr. Gasket started with Joe’s ‘57 Chevy and has continued to advance and expand with application coverage and even more new products for muscle cars. Head gaskets, exhaust gaskets and oil pan gaskets were just the beginning. The Mr. Gasket brand develops and distributes a variety of performance parts for your vehicle including: carburetor and fuel accessories, chrome-plated accessories, cooling system accessories, engine components, fuel additives, shifter accessories, specialty tools, suspension and driveline components. Located in Cleveland, Ohio, the Mr. Gasket team continues to design, develop, manufacture and distribute products that bring back the luster and performance that everyone remembers to a variety of auto projects. It may have started with a Chevrolet, but when you are ready to Restore, Restyle and Rebuild your car, Mr. Gasket is who you can trust to have the parts and advice you need to complete your project.
