Last week a friend dropped by the shop. He wanted me to take a look at a potential project car. It was a complete, albeit somewhat rusty, ’54 Willys Wagon. The truck was a cool one, but it needed wiring, floorpans, glass and the engine condition was unknown. A viable and worthy project to the right owner. On the ride…
What is white on the outside, red on the inside, and almost inconceivably large? If you guessed Moby Dick, you guessed wrong (but kudos on your literacy). It’s the 2017 Lexus LX 570! And there is only one reason to buy it. Status.
A few weeks back I got to drive the ‘16 GS-F. I’m not a Lexus fanboy, but this is an excellent car.
Cruising Craigslist. Found this. My life won’t be full again until I own it. That’s right folks it’s a poo-brown Gremlin sitting on a Jeep chassis and it’s miraculous.
I’ve been riding motorcycles for 13 years now, and in that time I have not managed to teach myself to ride a wheelie. Well excuses be damned. Now is the winter of my discontent, made glorious summer by the one wheel ride.
The difference between a crapcan and a luxury car is mostly just what gets checked on the options list. But what if you could turn a basic truck into a luxury vehicle with some modifications? That’s what we did before setting off on the road trip of a lifetime, and here’s how you can too.
Brian from Ft. Worth, Texas is a car guy. He’s taking his Chevy C-30 flatbed on the Hot Rod power tour and he’s building a Chevelle. Like lots of car guys one project just isn’t enough. This is his daily ride. It’s a Pontiac Aztek with a Breaking Bad twist.
So good. Props for using an International body. Also, do I hear a blow-off valve in the last scene?
Does dropping the engine out of the bottom of a crappy Honda Civic in the rain sound like a nice way to spend an afternoon? How about staying up all night twiddling wrenches just to make a junk car drag its sorry ass around a race track?
Seeing a boat in someone’s yard is not uncommon. However, when that boat is a 74 foot long, 16 foot wide steel behemoth hand-built from scratch by the owner, it begins to raise eyebrows. Doug Jackson, of Tulsa, Oklahoma has such a boat in his front yard. It’s called SV Seeker, and it’s not something you see every day.
Few things will make you feel worse than twisting the head off a bolt. It means the threads are seized in the hole, and now you have get the broken stump out of a tight spot. Having the right tools and know-how is essential to avoid that gut-punch feeling of breaking off hardware.
The rear license plate bracket is designed to flip outward. Why would anyone want that? This design allows the tag to be seen when driving with the tailgate down. International Scouts have loads of these clever little features.
Only a couple centuries ago, if somebody claimed they could hold lightning in their hand to fuse steel, they would stand a pretty good chance of being burned at the stake for witchcraft. Luckily, things have changed.
A favorite pass time of mine is to peruse the local Craigslist searching for cars I don’t need at obscenely low prices. This week I found a Mk1 Ford Fiesta and fell in love. Here’s why...
The following article contains graphic images of a 1957 BMW Isetta in the buff and is not for the faint of heart. But if you’re into this sort of thing then send the kids to the other room and draw the curtains because it’s about to get weird.
Some folks get their kicks by jumping out of planes. Others like to keep dangerous animals like cobras and tigers in their backyards. There is a thrill in keeping something around that can poison or maul a person to death. Stephen F. collects a different sort of hazard; he gathers 3-wheelers.
Last Friday I was lucky enough to go for a spin in a mid-century automotive oddity, a 1952 Studebaker Champion named Kermit.
This morning I gained intimate, carnal knowledge of a rare and majestic beast. Its name... DELOREAN. Here's the raw, uncensored up-close documentation of my experience.
The SEMA show is a week-long trade show which is closed to the public. But around 3:30 on Friday afternoon thousands of people begin to crowd the streets outside of the Las Vegas convention center to pay witness what must be the ultimate auto show roll out.
