Come December 1, Maserati will be 100 years old. I’ve followed the marque’s duck-and-dart adventures since the summer of 1967. That’s when my father and I, in our death-pallor-gray Ford Taunus in downtown Paris, spied a canary-yellow ’67 Ghibli whose driver was busy curbing its wheels.

Kevin Blaser with the 2015 F-150 tailgate Ford’s all-new 2015 F-150 is nearly on the streets, but there’s one new feature that’s so last-minute, it wasn’t there when the truck was revealed at the 2014 Detroit auto show: Indentations on the inside of the tailgate perfectly placed to hold a beverage.
