This part confuses me. Wasn’t there a blip in The Morning Shift last week about how Nissan claims it’s selling Frontiers faster than it can build them? So this means they make what, like 10 a day?

Not sure just how accurate this is, but I remember an internet tale about this cars design. Supposedly Soichiro loved the Pontiac style front grille arrangement, particularly the one on the Trans-Am, which is why the front of the 1300 Coupe resembles the Pontiac styling at the time. Read more

SR-5 was an AE85 I believe, GT-S has AE86 in the VIN. I think.

Growing up in the 90s my dad had three of these. An ‘84 SR5 Hatch, ‘85 GT-S Hatch and an ‘86 GT-S Coupe. The first car I ever drove was his 1985 GT-S Hatch. At our cottage around 1998. Told me just to let the clutch out slowly and it would idle itself away. Read more

My 944 has the stock 15" Turbo Phone Dials on it, yeah they look great. But trying to find GOOD tires for them, in the correct size (225/60R15)? Forget it. Literally everyone has told me to go up to 16" or 17" because I’ll have a million more tire size options.

I remember as a kid my uncle had a painfully slow 80s Chevy S10 that also had a bench seat and a stick shift. The shifter looked almost identical to that, with the weird nearly 90 degree bend. Read more

A 1980 Moto-Ski Mirage Special that was bought new in ‘80, then parked in a barn in ‘82 out in Elmvale, Ontario and forgotten about. Guy said he wanted $300 for the sled, and that the motor turned over. I drove up there, paid the $300, brought it home and spent 3 months trying to get it running and riding. Along the

That old Merc that gets wrecked in the video for All Used Up by Sloan.

Round 12 of the 1998 BTCC season, at Donington Park. It’s a shame all the videos of the event have been taken down from YouTube because it was one hell of an entertaining race from start to finish. There was even a video of Mansell, Cleland and Leslie all smiling and joking around about it after the finish.

The more I look at it, the more it’s a Ford Probe with the rear hatch glass from a Porsche 944 bolted to the front of it.

It would appear as though the aircraft was not on fire until after the landing. Multiple videos show the aircraft landing hard, bouncing then landing hard a second time, with the tail collapsing and the aircraft bursting into flames. Read more

The 2017 GMC Terrain I have as a rental right now has a touchscreen that takes 7-10 business days to respond to my input. Granted it does have physical buttons you can use to control it, but they’re poorly placed and almost recessed within the console, so they’re hard to find while you’re driving.

I had a 1998 Dodge Neon in high school (about 11 years ago). Yeah it was cheap, yeah it was falling apart, but it was tough as nails and reliable as hell. Admittedly I beat the ever living crap out of that car but it never let me down. I finally sold it for $500 at 400,000kms. I hold a soft spot in my heart for the

I grew up around people who are now in their 40s-50s complaining about how when they were younger they watched countless Chevelles, Novas, Trans Ams, Camaros, Mustangs, GTOs etc. get destroyed because they were worthless at the time.

This spoke to me on a damn near spiritual level. Just about every time I post anything on Rennlist one of the first responses is always “Oh, it’s an NA? LS swap it”   Read more

My old man had two Protege5s. I LOVED driving them, tight, crisp transmissions, tons of fun to chuck around, wicked in the snow, reliable as all hell and most importantly versatile. Sadly they rotted into nothing (in Canada anyways) the second they left the dealer.

‘84 944. Bought it 5 years ago not running from a kid. Spent 6 months day and night going through it, got it running, then drove it damn near every day for a year. Then one night the headlights stopped working. Found out the old ceramic fuse box was shorting out inside. Pulled it off the road, tried to fix the

I totally understand how most barn finds happen. I’ll use my story as an example:
