Behold! They cometh with four and six cylinders, turbochargers and direct injection! Wielding monstrous power-to-weight ratios and fiendish specific output numbers!

My Midlife Crisis, or Adventures in Audi Maintenance

Posted in Beater Cars, Car Buying, European, European Review by Dustin Driver | January 15th, 2015 | 1 Response |


Sure, it’s not really that bad as midlife crises go. I mean, yes, when I hit midlife I did switch jobs three times and got divorced, but that’s more the result of a constant and chronic whole-life crisis, not one of the midlife variety. No, my midlife crisis was automotive. My vehicular partners have all been Japanese and reliable and, literally, colorless (silver, beige, white, black, gray). I had owned my 2003 Mazda Protégé 5 for 10 long years. It was a fun, zippy, practical, economical car that could really do anything. But at 37 something snapped and I decided I needed more elegance, more power, more refinement. Enter the A4. Read More…

Baja Bugs

Out here in California we have all manner of off-road buggies and trucks. From modified Ford Raptors to full-on rock climbers, this state truly has it all. One of the more common vehicles we run across are Baja Bugs. These are modified VW Beetles that have the ability to go just about anywhere. They’re light, fun and a piece of cake to work on. The guys from Motor Trends “Dirt Every Day” recently grabbed two of these little buggers and decided to have a little fun.

Robo Cop

Is using RoboCop to frighten mature drivers really the best way that the US Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration can think of to educate people this holiday season?

The way Christmas should sound!

Christmas Stang

There are a few of us out there who think that Santa’s sleigh should be powered by a blown nitro-burning big-block, and that Rudolph’s nose should be replaced with a pair of angel-eyes from a BMW. Not only do I understand this mentality, but I totally agree with it. You see for us car guys Christmas is not so much a time of giving gifts, as it is a time too build, modify and create. Hot rods, imports and euro-sleds from around the world are enclosed in their garages for the winter just waiting for their owners to lay their hands upon them and upgrade, upgrade, upgrade. Some of us live in the land of snow and ice, which mean that our winters are long and harsh. Those in the sunshine belt however are blessed, as they truly can enjoy this holiday season. For those of us who are part of the chosen-frozen, I would like to present you with this Mustang fastback, as nothing says Merry Christmas like a well tuned V8.

Shitbox, P.O.S., beater, road-turd. Whatever you call them, having an extra car, truck or van that you can modify and flog is one of the greatest joys in all of motoring. This week on Motor Trend’s “Dirt Everyday” we get the inside track on “Clampy”, a 1986 Toyota SR5 pickup that’s been converted into one helluva rock crawler.

10 Supercars in Film of the 1980s

Posted in Movies by Gerri | December 16th, 2013 | 1 Response |

The 1980’s was a time when car phones were a sign of wealth and Thomas Brothers guides were essential.  Car manufacturers built in boxy and unappealing design elements that emphasized safety and practicality. Fortunately, the movies are a place where imagination intersects with disbelief.  During this era, Hollywood resisted practicality and reasonability to produce some of film and televisions most iconic cars. These cars spawned imaginations everywhere. Here is a list of ten top movie cars of the 1980’s.

eBay Deal of the Week: 1983 Ferrari Mondial Quattrovalvole

Posted in eBay Motors, Ferrari, General, Promoted by MrAngry | December 9th, 2013 | 1 Response |


Italian cars and reliability are two things that generally do not go hand-in-hand. Sometimes however there are exceptions to that rule and according to this owner, the following 1983 Ferrari Mondial Quattrovalvole is one of them. The owner states that aside from a few small body blemishes that this car was “Kept in mechanically perfect condition” and that “paint chips are your only headache.” Now I’m not sure if that’s 100% accurate, but if it is, you’re looking at getting into a Ferrari for the same price as a new Honda Accord. Pretty good stuff if you ask me.

Skinny Pedal

I’m not really sure that you could ever classify mud-bogging as a true motorsport, however you’ve got to admit that it sure is fun to watch. These tube chassis brutes pack 900 horsepower engines and tires the size of Fiats and have, over the years, morphed into some of the most insane machines to ever roll around on four wheels.
