Tavarish, B is for Build, Doug, and Hoovie all rack up some impressive views with their project cars. Being they flip, buy, and sell so frequently, who is ending up with their automotive fodder?! Might they be going to collectors? Do you want one? Now you’ve got an opportunity.
Normally I’d steer clear of any twin turbo Cummins merely out of a severe disgust of smog laws in my home state of California. This Cummins however is smog exempt and so very close to being a holy grail truck!
If there is one decade I love it’s the 80s. The neon colors, epic rock ballads, and golden beach culture. If you have the coin you can purchase this diesel ‘Burb, blast some Twisted Sister, and bomb over the ocean dunes you’ve always dreamed about.
The year of 2018 has passed. I completed 80 posts since April of 2018 when I started on this adventure. I have to say that the vast majority of you are wonderful people and it has been my pleasure to contribute in a mostly thoughtful way. I decided to revisit my favorite five posts. There will be less ridiculousness …
A new year and the same ol’ song. Someone has to bring you the new LP releases of “I know what I have” and “Barely broken in” for you guys right? Boy did I find someone with a song about hopes and dreams about getting paid big for their 16 year old truck. Come buy a ticket and see if you’ll sit through the entire…
The most stereotypical car guy garage has for a long time been the 32' Ford, 57' Chevy Belair, and the 69' Camaro. What will the stereotypical garage be for the car guy in the future? I think I’ve figured it out.
This is a 2001 Dodge Ram Cummins with exactly one-bazillion horses and torques. It has been around the world at the equator no less than 14 times. I believe this truck might be the perfect example I’ve been searching for - to show the world the shear ridiculousness of diesel trucks.
This proves the old saying, ‘Money follows money’ is true. Only a rich man could afford it new, and only the rich can afford it now. But could we have swooped in and bought one when it was cheap? When it was the old BMW that our dentist refused to pour more money onto to keep the V12 running?
The rear is all the rage today. We have an obsession with rear mounted tires. Most 4wd builds will have a tire mounted on the arse - Lesser locations include in the bed, inside the cargo area, stock locations, but what about on the front? Or on the side? We’re better than this people. Bring me back to simpler times.
My ownership of a 2006 Infiniti G35 6MT sedan has come to a close. All things come to pass - even automobiles. I enjoyed resurrecting this sedan from death (read: blown engine). As an enthusiast, it makes me happy to pass on one of my projects, especially when it appears it will be well cared for. So why recommend a…
All the cheap and clean XJs are gone (fact). Over the last 2 years there have been more nice ones popping up than I thought survived. I’d have guessed no one took care of them as there’s plenty of well-used and abused ones for sale. This one is NICE but can we guess what it will sell for when the gavel drops?
The things I want to write... If you strike all the automotive terminology, it would sound like dialogue from an adult film. This 1st gen has me all hot and bothered. Fork over the cash, slide up in’er, and give this one a good ride? This one might be your future ex-wife.
Go see the world. Eat different foods. Drive different cars. I am doing my best to abide by these simple suggestions. An opportunity came up to visit the Phoenix, Arizona area - I didn’t hesitate to book a flight. Upon arrival I decided to choose something I’d never rented before, a Hyundai. A Tucson would have made…
The home brew small truck diesel swap is one of my favorites. In my recent Craigslist slumming for potential features, I ran into this 1993 Toyota Truck with a Mercedes OM617 diesel. I’m in love with this one! Come inside and see if I’ll need to sign a prenuptial for this Ridiculous match made in a mud bog!
How often does one get drawn to a boat at a
boat car show? For me? It’s rare. I do appreciate the unique, especially when accompanied by a decent story. We’ve all seen the amazing restoration on dilapidated automobiles, but how many had to be raised from the bottom of a lake? How many were 123 years old?!!!
I don’t particularly enjoy crusty, rusty, ooey-gooey, greasy, oily hot mess project cars (or do I?). But I’ll do anything for a fun Nissan. I am a Nissan fanboy after all. It’s a problem I have, and one that I’ll share with you in the 1989 Nissan 240sx that I built. It was an adventure that started with a $300 …
Mother of god... what is this? I didn’t know such things existed in reality or even in the minds of mere men. If your contractor ever arrives in a vehicle like this, they have too much money and not enough sense. But what is it really? Come join me for another adventure into Ridiculous
The best part? The seller has a marital disclosure. Yup, if he doesn’t get his price his wife will “cut him off like a pimp”.
I have always hated personalized license plates. So much so, I had trouble driving my wife’s car with girly personalized plates. But when California released the 60s Legacy plates I began to change my mind...
No freaking way. A Citroen. That’s a bird rarely seen. But a rare bird of paradise?! Holy shnarkies!!!
