It’s not too often that you see a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona with blue, painter’s tape numbers on it working it’s way around an Autocross course. But yesterday at the WNY-SCCA’s Autocross at New Era Field, I got see it!
A friend texted me this photo. He told me his wife took it and wondered what it was because it was insanely loud.
I imagine that this is how most people with Yugos for sale feel.
Here on Oppositelock, a lot of our good work gets lost in time. I decided to compile a list of the articles I have written that I feel are worth reading. This way I can just link to this page in my signature at the bottom of my articles and add to it as needed
I just wanted to add one final follow-up to my QuickJack review.
So I find a package at my door this morning that was overnighted from Bendpack:
I’ve always wanted my own vehicle lift. Unfortunately, I don’t have the space or that Tavarish money for one. Fortunately, I came across a product that, for me at least, provides me with enough lifting capacity to accomplish 90% of what I would use a real lift for: The QuickJack Car-Lift System
I love my Mazda RX-8. It’s a car that I truly love driving and working on like nothing else that I have owned. I am also well aware that this car has its issues and is not for everyone. I hope that if someone is considering buying an one, they read this and take away something useful to help guide their choice and are…
Buying a car in Canada and bringing it back to the USA is thought of as a complicated, time-consuming process that often is seen as ‘not worth it’. My friend, JJ, recently completed this process and I tagged along with him to write about the experience and hopefully provide some light on the importation process.
The TL;DR of it: The story of how I turned my ‘88 Fiero from a poor-college-kid-project into a well-sorted 500+HP monster.
So I began putting together my Quickjack today.
Well this is the year I finally do it. My kids are both school-age and far more manageable. We have settled into life after moving back to my hometown, and my Mazda RX-8 is running properly. This will be the year that I finally run a full autocross season!
I have pretty much become the de-facto automotive purchasing agent for many of my friends and family. My Father, who goes through vehicles faster than Taylor Swift goes through boyfriends is my number-one client.
In a never-ending quest to be more fiscally responsible, I was looking for ways to reduce my car payments and also get another vehicle in the household with an automatic transmission, so I started hunting for a replacement for my STI. In an effort to find something sensible, durable, yet somewhat cool and unique, I…
A few weeks ago, I took my Mom’s car to get inspected. When I first drove it down her street, I heard the unmistakable groan of a dry wheel bearing doing the best it could to not explode all of it’s ball bearings out of it’s cartridge resulting in a wheel-lauching-disaster. When I get the car back to her I ask her…
This is a story about how ‘The Curse of One-Hundred Thousand Miles’ paid me a visit and gave my car a good working over, and how the awesome people of an automotive internet forum helped me overcome.
This is a story about how something can be right in front of your face the whole time, but you can’t see it because you’re looking for it by a different name...
I have owned 16 cars by my last count. Among them, there is only one that I have truly regretted selling.
This past Monday I took a 4-hour drive with my family to go to Detroit to the North American International Auto Show. This is a collection of various wheels from throughout the show. I always love checking out various wheel and brake setups on cars.
