From a local Facebook car group.
After a car-shopping blitz with some good friends for which I was Chief Automotive Adviser, I have driven enough cars to warrant an update to my sprawling but rather Euro-centric list of Every Car I’ve Ever Driven. I am apparently a magnet for Mercedes and Jaguars, despite owning neither.
We had a lot of snow fall this weekend in Nashville. The freeways were plowed and salted in advance, but that’s about it. Conditions were treacherous - people crashing left and right. But, I was out of Pop Tarts.
Yamaha’s motorcycle-riding robot is cool, but the Germans has the same idea over a half-century ago.
Some of you may recall that I complained mightily about my Saab 9000 Aero’s harsh suspension. It had needed new tires since I bought it, so with it otherwise mechanically sorted I decided to bite the bullet on some new rubber.
Yesterday was a big day for me. After some fiddling around on the carb of my 1964 Sears Cheyenne (a 60cc Puch), and some one-way passes down the backyard, I mustered up the courage to take my little motorcycle on the road.
I just bought a 1964 Puch MC60 (badged as a Sears Cheyenne 60) out of a barn. For $180, I couldn’t say no. Currently it is in my bedroom; I’m hoping to try to start it this weekend when I finish electrolytic conversion on the tank. Pro tip: if you want to get looks in your car, just strap a motorcycle to the roof of a…
It’s been a slow day at work, so I decided to go back through my past and recount every car - yes, EVERY car, that I’ve ever driven, along with the approximate miles for which I was at the wheel.
Today marks nearly two months since I purchased my 1996 Saab 9000 Aero, and four years (!) since taking ownership of my 1987 Alfa Romeo Milano Platinum. To commemorate this anniversary, I’ve decided to write a comparison review using both cars on my daily commute to work. But how do I decide which one to drive first?
Specifically, this article:
Yesterday it occurred to me how many cars (especially obscure European cars) ‘coincidentally’ resembled larger models from other companies. I’ve compiled five here; feel free to add your own in the comments!
I'm rapidly running out of reasons not to buy one. It wouldn't even be the most complicated/expensive-to-maintain car I've owned. It seems like, with some looking, a 50k-90k mile example can be had for $15k. Are they done depreciating, or do they have further to drop? I don't see them being less than $10k cars. I'm…
That's right. There seems to be two kinds of people who read Tavarish's articles. The first is the "I would TOTALLY do that if I had the money / my wife would let me / my husband would let me / I didn't already own 11 Citroens" crowd. The other is the "You'll spend that much keeping it running / I don't have time to…
And if you've seen this before, you need to see it again.
There have been a few "Best Car" lists here, and most of them have offered some pretty sound advice on all of the wonderful cars you can get for less than the price of a new Camry, or how to take advantage of the abysmal depreciation of certain supercars. However some of us prefer to - or perhaps have no choice but to…
Grey poupon: it goes well with grits.
And I'm just sitting here admiring my new tires. Yes, they were more expensive than the car. No, I don't need professional counseling.
My friend noticed something suspicious about his W115 the other day. The shadow it casts when facing south at noon is reminiscent of a certain work of German architecture.
Not gonna let that happen.
