Imagine that you grow up admiring something that you are unsure even exists. You eventually learn the object of your desire does exist in real life, but it is very far away in a place you may never be able to go to. Then that impossibly far away thing lands in your backyard.
Watching a video about the Ghibli, I wondered to myself why FCA would offer a version of the Giulia to compete with it? Then I asked myself, why does either company exist under the same corporate umbrella?
Hello gang, its been a while. I come to you because you might be the only people remarkable enough to prevent me from having an aneurysm. The car pictured above sold for $2,000,000. Why.
When my new wife and I were planning our honeymoon, I wanted to see if there was anything car related going on near London that I would not want to miss. A place called the Brooklands Museum had an event going on called Supercar Sunday the same time we would be over. “You’d be stupid not to go” said the wife. So we…
James Bond is a cultural icon, and the vehicles used by the British spy have become icons themselves. The London Film Museum is currently hosting many of these mobile icons, and I’m not just talking about the ones on four wheels.
I recently got hitched and my new bride and I spent our honeymoon in a cramped city filled with very low speed limits and very fast cars. The British have a great sense of humor, and a great taste in automobiles. Lets check some out!
Not a damn thing, that’s what.
Not too long ago, I got Daytona USA for the PS3. Its been on the PS3 for a while, but better late than never!
The 25 year rule is much loathed by car enthusiasts in the United States. But maybe its a good thing certain cars have remained out of reach. Look at what we did with the good cars we had access to in the states, like the CRX and Supra. Think about how they were all ruthlessly destroyed during the Tunerpocalypse.
Exactly 10 years ago, the Mustang my father and I restored was lost to a garage fire. This is something I have written about before on Oppo but the customs on LaLD have given me an idea on how to honor the memory of the ‘67 coupe that I miss so much.
The calendar says it is Spring but the sky says otherwise. And so the Ratstang continues to rest...
The Shelby A/C Cobra is a very influential car. People have paid homage to the V-8 powered roadster in many different ways. And some mysterious soul decided to make a Cobra out of a large hunk of wood.
Back in a stick shift again for a daily driver. I mean, I’ve had a stick shift project car for a while now but my ‘71 Stang is not a good daily. This 2012 Focus is a great daily driver though, as well as good handling, free revving, gas sipping, and easy shifting.
When most people think of fast Italian vehicles, they think of Ferrari or Lamborghini. But plenty of very fast motorcycles have come from the land of Spaghetti. And one of the best motorcycles to come from Italy was from a little company called Ducati.
I have yet to participate in French Friday, hopefully my F.F. debut does not disappoint. I figured the Citroen DS3 WRC driven by Sebastien “I win everything rally” Loeb would be appropriate. It is a French car driven by a French driver for the Rally de France. I think its French enough.
“Stock Car” is a loose definition in the NASCAR world. At one time the term Stock Car had meaning, when most street cars were rear wheel drive and solid axle. The street counterpart to a NASCAR Stock Car became more different to its racing brethren with each generational jump. This post highlights one of the biggest…
Endurance racing trends come and go, and the changing of trends usually coincides with cars getting too fast or racing efforts getting too expensive. Group C endurance cars were killed off for being too fast and expensive, and the rules were changed to promote the GT1 class that had street-able counterparts in the…
The DeLorean has been “revived” thanks to the Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act. That got me thinking, what other cars could come back from the past via the new law?
Lancia doesn’t make the news much anymore, but once upon a time they made headlines in motorsport. The bold Italian car maker created racing machines that were beautiful, fast and sometimes unconventional. The Lancia 037 was all three and has the distinction of being the last rear wheel drive car to win the WRC.
I present to you a video produced by Fiat celebrating Lancia motorsport in the mid 80's. The video is simply titled “Winning.” It’s in Italian, but it’s awesomeness needs no translation.
