There's nothing like the open road, a powerful car and a beautiful Spring day.
This week's 5 Cars suggests grabbing a muscle car. What's that? According to Merriam-Webster, it's one of "a group of American-made two-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving." We're talking a huge, honkin' V6 or V8 engine, rear-wheel drive, something you'd imagine Fonzie driving in a drag race. Best of all, a muscle car can make its driver look like she or he shouldn't be messed with: These powerful, though fairly inexpensive, vehicles can make you look and feel tougher, stronger, sexier and richer than you probably are. You know, three grand makes for a tidy down payment... And after dealing with the IRS, feeling tough while being thrifty may be exactly what the doctor ordered. 1. 2014 Ford Mustang…

Not even Ryan Gosling's charm and good looks can save this film. Now playing nearby.
Friday, April 26
This column was written by Lori Wieczorek, editor-in-chief of Montclair State University's newspaper The Montclarion. "The Place Beyond the Pines" is now playing nearby. "The Place Beyond the Pines" markets itself as a Ryan Gosling flick — which comes with the obvious expectations — but not even his good looks can save this movie from losing focus.

Within minutes, the viewer finds out that Luke has a past with Romina (played by Eva Mendes). The interaction is charged with sexual attraction but we have yet to find out the extent of their relationship…
