I’d like to imagine the driver of this early T-top’d MR2 is listening to something like the Boston Legal theme song.
This mini documentary on Miami’s most powerful speedboats is actually pretty interesting and colorful, but the officially-licensed Lamborghini boat “Raging Bull” is, just, good grief.
Somewhere deep in the Earth’s irritable bowels below Los Angeles there lies a parking garage with one spot so gloriously wide, so completely ensconced by paint and concrete that if you can claim it, your chances of collecting new dents in your doors while parked drops to almost zero. Imagine it.
A few weeks ago I told you to go find and buy an old Mercedes C43 AMG, a hot little V8 rear-drive sedan from the 90s that still looks sweet and costs next to nothing today. A few days ago somebody took my advice. But maybe they took it a little too far.
Driving a 1978 Ferrari 308 with zero engine noise was weird. Using a regular three-pedal five-speed manual gearbox connected to an electric motor was even odder. But Electric GT’s EV-swapped Ferrari has a distinctive driving experience that, once you wrap your brain around it, is uniquely satisfying.
You know how every army movie has a montage where dudes crawl, claw and climb their way through what looks like the most miserable gym class ever? EnduroCross is pretty much that, on dirt bikes. Racing. The new season kicks off August 19 in Las Vegas. Watch it there, or online right here.
For the 2017 Baja 1000, which is being recognized as the 50th anniversary of the event, race sanctioning body SCORE has created two new classes for period-correct race vehicles built before 1992. It’s going to be old-school cool fender-to-fender all the way down to La Paz, baby!
To assert the legitimacy of its off-roadiness, the Chevy Colorado ZR2 is going to take on the grueling 550-mile Vegas To Reno desert race this weekend with its stock engine and transmission. And license plates; this competition truck is totally street-legal, according to GM.
The Honda Prelude never enjoyed the prevalence or subsequent nostalgia that makes enthusiast-spec Civics and Acura Integras so desirable today. But it was a damn good car in the late ’90s, it’s a good car now, and as of this afternoon we have a solid yardstick for seeing what a really well-sorted one is actually worth.
Most car shows on TV revolve around some kind of “race-against-time restoration” and the internet is overstocked with amateur mechanics dispensing DIY advice. George Karellas’ “Soup” series has a little bit of both, but with visual twist I really like.
Earlier today our chief junkyard-dwelling correspondent Jason Torchinsky found a most miserably worked-over pile of wreckage and tried to see if anybody might guess what kind of car it used to be. Amazingly, one of you (pretty much) nailed it!
An auction just ended for a twin-turbo (come to papa) six-speed manual (mmm) targa-roof (aw yea) essentially stock (unnnf) mint-condition 60,000 mile 1997 Toyota Supra ([panting]) in freaking factory green-on-tan and some lucky bastard now owns it for about $1 per mile on the odometer.
The California Highway Patrol is scouring the streets for this dickbag who was caught ramming their Infinti G37 into a BMW, sending it careening under a semi-truck. Nobody was hurt, but the sooner this dangerous asshole is removed from our roads the better.
Today we got to talking about 90s and 2000s nostalgia, and the relentless extreme-lifestyle optimism that came with it. And also, cars that tried so aggressively to be cool that they achieved perfect lameness.
Herbie, the sentient 1963 Volkswagen Beetle that starred in several Disney movies, is apparently enjoying a modest retirement near Buenos Aires, Argentina.
We had some interesting amateur engineering dialog over what Toyota was trying to accomplish with its strange “assisted manual transmission.”
Acura sold just 64 RLX sedans across the entire United States last month. The car either needed to be dragged out back and put down or dosed with some of that steroidal energy the NSX has been suckling on. Well, the 2018 Acura RLX has landed and it really wants you to take this “Sport Hybrid” thing seriously.
This video gets uncomfortably close to the chemical processes at work during a comprehensive re-paint of a Porsche 911. And man, it’s stranger to watch than alien eggs hatching. Even if you already know how filthy and laborious car painting is, these guys take detail-work to another level.
Somebody finally figured out how to set the clock on a VHS player and holy crap, turns out that thing was actually a time machine all along! Also, if summer camp games plus motorcycles sounds appealing, you’re suddenly in luck.
