And President Johnson tapped him to become the first president of the Urban Institute, a think tank launched to address the nation's growing urban problems.
Miller wielded an encyclopedic mind beginning with his childhood, when he dismantled a classic Model T. With unbound curiosity, he simply wanted to explore Henry Ford's mass-produced invention that put the world behind wheels.
"I sent it out and had 100 copies made," Miller recalled. "When it was finished, I went proudly in to see Mr. Ford. He looked at it and said, 'I like it. I need five more. My two brothers, my sister, my mother and my grandmother.' I didn't tell him I had 94 copies left."
Ian added: “Some of the technology on board – like wireless phone charging – is quite impressive for the money and this class of car. I like the LED lights as well, as they help to create a clear brand identity for SEAT.”
It’s not that there’s no droning sound as the Accord accelerates, but Honda has done a good job of tamping down that irritation. Yes, we prefer the conventional 10-speed automatic that Honda uses with the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, but Honda’s implementation of a CVT is among the best.
"Le Mans is agreed," a source close to Toyota told the BBC. "The rest of the season is still being negotiated, but it looks like he will do most of the races."
Miller created Ford's first annual report -- complete with financial tables, charts and footnotes and what he described as "a nice cover."
As for such a car’s real-life implications, we don’t want to indulge in too much wishful thinking. But there has been plenty of talk of a new Honda-badged sports car in recent years. We first entertained the possibility of Honda’s mid-engined Porsche Cayman fighter in 2015, while more recent rumors have centered around a revived S2000 roadster, possibly with hybrid power. At this point, we can only live out our fantasies in the video-game world and hold out hope that this virtual Honda is more than just talk.
Krause's reported departure follows a string of other high-profile talent losses at the struggling company: Supply chain management head Tom Wessner left the company at the beginning of October, while human resources vice president Alan Cherry left in August.
When Congress began pressing Detroit automakers to do more to prevent automobile accidents, Miller and Ford acknowledged that the auto industry was slow to embrace safety and pledged to support federal efforts to enhance occupant protection.
I would be getting a Thor Vegas, technically a Class A but with “many of the advantages of the smaller Class C.” It's shaped like an A on the outside but rides on a Ford E450 van chassis with a 6.8-liter Ford Triton V10 making 305 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. It's 26 feet, 6 inches long, 11 feet, 3 inches high (not counting the air conditioner and TV antenna) and 7 feet, 10 inches wide, not counting the mirrors.
For an extra £1,000 - £6,995 in total - customers can opt for the Huntsman Plus Pack, which adds the Pedders suspension kit to the D-Max. Optional extras on the Hunstman Accessory pack include bespoke Huntsman leather interior and a range of different dog boxes.
Honda is doing its best to singlehandedly prop up the dreams of the enthusiast driver by offering a six-speed manual transmission with two of the Accord’s engines. We continue to genuinely enjoy working that manual, so we’d choose an Accord Sport, which is the only trim to offer the stick shift. We prefer the more powerful, Civic Type R–derived turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four, but if the $31,185 asking price of the Sport 2.0T is too rich for your blood, the 1.5-liter turbo four in the $26,655 Sport 1.5T model will still offer plenty in the way of driving enjoyment. An automatic transmission—a continuously variable automatic (CVT) on the 1.5T and a new 10-speed automatic on the 2.0T—is a no-cost option in both trims. Standard features on the Accord Sport 2.0T include:
