Cars We Remember: 1923 Maxwell

Cutline: Here’s the actual car reader John Summers drove back in 1945 and 1946, namely a 1923 Maxwell. The Maxwell was a popular car back then, and was built in the United States from 1904 to 1925. The company was purchased by William Chrysler in 1921, who dropped the Maxwell line in 1925, sold them as a Chrysler for a few years and then re-named the Maxwell tooling as Plymouth in 1928. (John Summers collection photo) Revisiting the 1923 Maxwell Q: Hi Greg! I drove a 1923 Maxwell to school my junior and senior years, from 1945 to 1946. I still don’t know anything about the car’s history, or other info on the Maxwell automobiles (I do not have a computer). I would really appreciate an article by you on the history of this car. I am enclosing a photo of my 1923 Maxwell, which was my first car. I lost track of the car after I joined the Navy right out of high school in 1946. I really enjoy your articles so please keep up your interesting automobile columns. Sincerely, John H. Summers, WWII veteran, Canton, Ohio. A: John, thank you so much for your kind words and for your service to our country in WWII. It’s the hand written letters like yours that make my day, and I’ll be happy to explain some Maxwell automobile facts. (more…)

Review: 2015 Porsche Macan

Crossovers and small SUVs are typically not an area of great interest for car enthusiasts. So what would it take to get the motorheads of the world to pay attention to the debut of a baby ‘ute? When that vehicle is built by Porsche. The purists have been scoffing at vehicles like the Cayenne SUV and Panamera four-door sports car since their arrival. But these vehicles have been proven sales successes, and their profits lead to the development of the next generation vehicles like the 911 and 918. As such, the purists can pipe down while Porsche generates the profits necessary to develop a world-class sports car in the 21st century. Porsche is building more cars than it ever has, and even their least-performance-focused car is still a million times more attractive and engaging than your run-of-the-mill daily driver. (more…)

2014 Toyota Highlander

An upgraded vehicle deserves freshened, more modern sheet metal too. The handsome 2014 Highlander now looks more like a “proper” SUV than a minivan with a hood. Toyota Toyota’s success in America stems from many things—a reputation for quality and low maintenance, sensitive pricing, a broad dealer base, consistent advertising and so on and so forth. Above all, however, might be the company’s feel for exactly what it is we want or need to drive. If Toyotas are down-the-middle mainstream . . . well, so is vanilla, the best-selling ice cream. It’s familiar, poses no challenges, and can be quite satisfactory. That’s Toyota in a nutshell, and this 2014 Highlander in particular. Like vanilla ice cream, it gets the job done—the job description here being “pretty big and comfortable but still affordable family vehicle for all seasons that’s gotten even better for 2014.” (more…)
