There's nothing like taking a drive with the perfect song playing that matches the mood and moment. When the rhythms sync up with the undulating road, the whole experience gets just a little bit better. Danish jazz-fusion band Elektrojazz understands the connection between music and driving, and it has a new album called Cars with each track inspired by a specific vehicle of the 1970s. The era might be known for some real clunkers, but you don't have to look too hard to find classics from the groovy decade, as well.

Instead of picking the cars themselves, the members of Elektrojazz put up a poll on the band's website allowing people to vote for their favorites. The most popular vehicle in each category made it onto the album. The final list definitely skews towards European sports cars of the era, with choices like the Lotus Esprit ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/lotus+esprit/[/url]) and Lamborghini Countach ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/lamborghini+countach/[/url]), but there are some definite outliers like the AMC Pacer ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/amc+pacer/[/url]) and Saab 99 Turbo ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/saab+99/[/url]).

"Some of my favorites didn't make it," said Elektrojazz member Anders Larson to Autoblog via email. He would have liked the Porsche 928 ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/porsche+928/[/url]) and Jaguar XJS ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/jaguar+xjs/[/url]) to make the cut, among several others. Although, he hinted that another car-inspired album could be on the way.

Each ride gets its own style of jazz to go along with it, too. The song about the 1970 Dodge Challenger ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/dodge/challenger/[/url]) sounds like you could drop it into Bullitt and no one would notice. However, the one about the Pacer uses some Latin-tinged blues. Scroll down ([url]http://saabforum.org/2014/07/09/cool-jazz-tracks-inspired-great-cars-1970s-video/#continued[/url]) to watch a video that previews all of the groovy tracks on the album. It's available for sale on the band's website ([url]http://www.elektrojazz.com[/url]) and on iTunes.Continue... [Read More]

([url]http://saabforum.org/2014/06/30/gm-recalling-8-million-cars-ignition-problems-official/#continued[/url])

([url]http://www.autoblog.com/photos/gm-recall-chart-june-30-2014/)General[/url] Motors ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/gm/[/url]) today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/chevy+cobalt/[/url]) ignition switch fiasco.

For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:

7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.
  • 1997-2005 Chevrolet Malibu ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/malibu/[/url])
  • 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/oldsmobile+intrigue/[/url])
  • 1999-2004 Oldsmobile Alero ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/oldsmobile+alero/[/url])
  • 1999-2005 Pontiac Grand Am ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/pontiac+grand+am/[/url])
  • 2000-2005 Chevrolet Impala ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/impala/[/url])
  • 2000-2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/chevy+monte+carlo/[/url])
