If you have ever been a part of an automotive forum or a car related Facebook group, you have probably read a horror story of a shop either never finishing the work on someones car, doing poor work to it, or damaging it. It is important that you understand what to do to steer clear of bad shops and what your…
Going up Pikes Peak on a nice day at race pace is a feat for the brave, but climbing the mountain in foul weather with poor visibility is pure lunacy. This year, Victor Kuhns was the last person to make it all the way up Pikes Peak before officials paused the race for foul weather and shortened the course, and you…
LS7 into RX7...it’s almost like it it was meant to be.
I think that we can all admit that the aftermarket car industry is in a perpetual state of change. It evolves as the industry and tastes change and that has been a lot over the past two decades. But what does this mean to those folks that are at the tip of the spear? The small shop owner.
Geppetto looked at his Fiesta ST and said, “I wish you were a real race car.”
Whats that? We have a Toyota Prius press car? Right Foot Down?! Sacrilege!
Hardly had to even read the whole thing, the E39 M5 is one of the greatest BMW’s ever made.
Don’t worry, it’s not a Doug Demuro video. Our own Michael Thompson spends time in an E39 BMW M5 and explains why he thinks it’s worth every penny of $20,000 and then some.
There are Skyline specialists in the U.K. should you need them.
400 to the wheels is solidly within the “super fun street car” realm. Granted, that hasn’t kept me from planning much more for my Nova...
Josh (@JoshTaylorUSA) here. GTR update time! I’ve owned my R32 Skyline GTR for less than 2 weeks. The first 5 days were emotional highs. On day 1 we put it up on the lift at IM Autohaus to see what we were working with. Will joined us and begged us for a ride home and I got cozy with the R32 GTR’s ample rear leg room.
Congrats! I liked reading about DeMuro’s when he had it, but I’m eager to hear another perspective. He’s got his own... angle.
The R30 was the first R-series (i.e. R chassis) car, not the first GT-R.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio made landfall earlier this year and and has laid waste to all competitors in it’s class. It’s a lightweight (sort of) sport sedan packing a 2.9 liter twin-turbo V6 producing 505 horsepower and sends all 443 lbs ft of torque through a ZF 8-speed automatic to the rear wheels. The Alfa…
RPF1 all the cars.
are were at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit talking to many a cool person and who’s-who of the industry when we bumped in to this amazing MX-5 Speedster which Mazda commissioned, themselves!
Absolutely true, but more importantly “questionable skidmarks” would make a great band name.
If you haven’t noticed, we were at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week. The rest of the boys/men/team/squad have done a few of these types of events before, but my only exposure to big auto shows was the Kansas City one. Which is not quite on the same tier. So I was a bit broadsided by the…
The RFD team is at the 2017 North American Auto Show with just about every other auto outlet imaginable. There are some interesting figureheads in town, one of which we ran in to was Klaus Busse. He’s the Head of Design for Alfa Romeo Europe. You like the Alfa 4C, Guilia and Stelvio? Yeah? Watch this (and please…
