Robert Kubica is set to race for Williams in 2019, completing a remarkable comeback eight years after a rally accident that nearly killed him. The 33-year-old Polish driver suffered a partially severed right arm among many other injuries in the crash and still only has partial movement in that limb. A story of remarkable resilience and determination, it could go down as one of the greatest comebacks in sport. He will partner British rookie George Russell at Williams next season.
A week ago we reported on Allyn Pierce who is a nurse from Paradise, California who drove his Toyota Tundra through the apocalyptic Camp Fire to get to the hospital to help evacuate his patients. After nearly being burned to death in his truck, and getting all of his patients to safety, he took stock of just how badly damaged his truck was. Toyota also took notice and have now replaced his burned Tundra with a brand new 2019 TRD PRO Tundra.

Cars and Coffee season usually only lasts while the sun is out and summer is still in full force, but every once in a while somebody brings out something special right at the end of the car show season.
A common complaint about car design these days is that many have become bloated swollen iterations of their older versions and that they have lost much of what made their predecessors successful. Most of this size increase is due to the increases in safety regulations and chassis design, but there is one manufacturer who seems to be going in the opposite direction. I’m talking of course about Bugatti.
Just when we think we’ve seen the pinnacle of engineering from the folks in Woking they go and surprise us all again.
