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!!!
Halfway between Far East and the West lies the most remote island chain in the world, Hawaii. I came to the Big Island to get lost - then someone tossed me the keys to a Pathfinder.
I’ve always wanted a boat. I have thus far been smart enough not to buy one. The saying is: “The best two days of owning a boat are the day you buy it and the day you sell it”. Hopefully I have a better experience because I’ve got an engine to fix up now!
My unbridled boy-racer-ism is much more tame these days. This is my photographic evidence for the degradation of my car enthusiasm as I’ve grown up. Anyone got a better personal picture of what their change in age, career, circumstance, or taste looks like? Mine is below!
This is the greatest idea for the new century. A solution to the polluted future and the quickly disappearing oil supply. Everyone just install a Hit and Miss Engine into your automobile! Think about it! Less is more!
It is sounding like we don’t need to be upset any longer! It is happening! We need another Tacoma, Ranger, and Colorado/Canyon competitor. Please be diesel, four door, and manual transmission. Can we ask for a straight axle front? Probably not. Modern consumers are a bunch of wussies.
We’ve all heard of a Fummins (Ford with a Cummins engine). But has anyone seen a Ford interior inside a Dodge Cummins? This is a first for me... but how much should the owner be asking?!
You want to be a mechanic? A god of all things geared, sparked, and fueled?! Where to begin.. something easy? F#&% no! Start with an ill conceived devil machine. Start with a Z32 300zx!
