A "late model car" is a car which has been recently designed or manufactured, often the latest model. (An "early model car" or "classic car" is a car old enough to be of historical interest; there is no usual intermediate term.) The term is broadly used in car racing, and often appears in common use, as in: "The officer was driving an unmarked, late model sedan."
The precise definition of "late model" varies. For example, according to the Michigan Department of Motor Vehicles, a late-model vehicle is defined as:
Late model race cars are the highest class of local stock car racing vehicles at many race tracks in the United States and North America. Some regional and lower national-level series race in late models. Varieties of late models (ranked from highest vehicle...

Just after noon we took a run over to Costco to pick up a couple of Nancy’s prescriptions, then a quick stop at W Skipped our morning walk as we had to get going a bit early. Met Paulette at the Starr Ridge model to look at paint colors. Selected a paint for the interior (Foggy Morning) that goes well with the tile, cabinets and wood tile floor in the bedroom. Choices were made more difficult by the fact that the color chart looks considerably different than the larger 8 inch square samples, especially when you get them out in the sun. The ones we liked from the color chart turned out to be no good once we saw the larger sample outside. Paulette is going to get larger samples of a couple of other colors and we will revisit it later.

They are salesmen, able to sell a self serving, historically disastrous creed like Neoliberalism (aka monetarism aka supply side aka trickle down economics) to press and politicians as common sense. NeoLiberalism (and it's favourite tool Globalisation) has destroyed the bargaining power of Labour to such an extent that the spur for technical innovation has gone. Soon the Neoliberals like Osbourne and Boris Johnson will find an economic justification to finally do the job of the Luddites and destroy all the (modern equivalent of) looms, because we will have moved back to the 17thC and there will be enough... , who predicted the crash of 2008, and the Greece collapse, has the fundamental cause of this problem as the attitude to debt. The Neoliberal excuse we are given for Austerity in the UK is that we.

Whether we like it or not, modern muscle cars are a long way from their classic counterparts. The 2020 Mustang GT continues the legend of the iconic pony car, a story that began way back in 1964 with the launch of the first-generation Mustang. Today, well over 10,000,000 units have rolled off the production line and the model shows no signs of slowing down. The latest models still represent the essence of muscle cars but the experience has arguably been diluted somewhat - the result of...

Car buyers have always gravitated towards faster cars, and modern automotive technology means the average buyer can now access more horses than ever. It's a never-ending race between manufacturers who can provide the model with the best stats.
