Somebody asked us the other day where we find the posts and news to update our Twitter and Facebook accounts. Here are five great car blogs we regularly visit for updates and factoids on the auto business!

Jalopnik - This site is “obsessed with the cult of cars” and boy howdy is there some great info. Anything from the Garage of Horror, where they share worst nightmares people have of experiences in their cars, to the Question of the Day ( like “what makes a great driver” ) Jalopnik has it all. Plus of course all kinds of cool news about new cars and stuff.

Wheels is the New York Times automobile blog. Here you’ll find commentary on newsworthy topics in the auto industry. Find in-depth reviews of new car releases as well as opinions on everything from hybrid taxi fleets to Nascar drivers crashing planes.

Cars for Girls claims to be the woman’s guide to everything automotive and they come pretty darn close. They include tips for buying a new car, taking your driver’s test, and of course car maintenance and repair. We also like their Guides that contain information on everything you need to know about your car.

Autoblog “obsessively” covers all the news in the auto industry. Go to this site if you want to know about  new cars, the car shows, the automobile companies or anything that has a real ‘news’ bent.

Finally, if you’re into the future, visit Gas 2.0 This site isn’t as popular as the others, but it has great stories on the next generation of cars. Electric vehicles, solar powered cars, you name it and they report on it. That’s where I found out there’s an 80 mpg Ford concept car. (They really can make them now, you now)

Other sites you might like are of course Consumer Reports Car Blog and the Car Blog.

    Hello,

    Would you be interested in adding an additional income stream to your site?

    I am an affiliate of a performance-based ad agency and help to increase revenue with highly-targeted advertisements that you can add to your site and/or to the emails you send to your opt-in list.

    This will in no way take up much of your time. It really just requires you placing the ad on the site. And this will in no way affect your current AdSense earnings, or user experience, so you risk nothing. Remember, you can start with something as simple as a text link.

    The ads that we offer have a payout ranging from $5 to $50 per conversion.
    If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll provide a custom proposal for you, with specific ads to target your customer base.
