I just got back from Europe. A decent seat on a decent airline from Vienna to Lyon was $36 and about two hours. Sure, bag fees made that closer to $100, but still. A first class train ticket requires a transfer, takes 10 hours and was several hundred dollars—but at least you get to see some great scenery along the Read more

My mom calls amd says “you have had good results with used BMWs, we need your advice”, which they promptly ignored. A 2004 Jaguar XK8 that they called to get a sanity check on before buying it anyway. A billion watts of warning lights later, but only about 30,000 miles later it was a basket case.

You all know that you can get not quite as fast and not quite as ragged 135is all day for like $15k, right? Sure, it’s the age-old not-quite-an-argument but it’s 85% of the car for 25% of the money. Read more

If your mission is creeping, just embrace it. I bet the driveline from a ZJ V8 would be relatively cheap to acquire and a challenging (but achievable) install.
