BMW2002_6

If you’re looking to get into the classic car hobby and want a fun little runabout, the BMW 2002 is a perfect place to start. The 2002 is considered by many to be one of the first true sports sedans on the market. The glass-house cabin means outstanding visibility, and thanks to the updated M10 4-cyclinder engine, you can rest assured that power will never be a problem. The one you are viewing here is a 1976 model (the last year of the 2002) and has been lovingly refurbished by its owner. Is it perfect? Well, no. But that doesn’t mean it’s far off. Click through and check out the owner provided video or go directly to the eBayMotors ad below.

Red Bull

If you would’ve asked me 15 years ago if a soft drink company would be the largest supporter of extreme sports in the world, I would have laughed at you. However the only ones who are laughing now are the guys over at RedBull. They not only support, but help grow just about every extreme sporting event known to man. They’re marketing superstars and a brand that every athlete strives to be a part of. Check it out after the jump.

Need For Speed Full Length Trailer

Breaking Bad

There have been many films over the years that have tried to encroach in on the Fast and the Furious franchise, however very few have succeeded. In the upcoming film NEED FOR SPEED, Aaron Paul (of Breaking Bad fame) stars as a man framed for a crime he didn’t commit. His goal – get out of prison and settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction.

Hmm… sounds like the A-Team meets The Fast and Furious 2 to me.

eBay Deal of the Week: 1971 Chevrolet Custom C20

1971ChevyC20_1

If you stop and think about it, there really isn’t anything exciting about a work truck of any make or model. However this 1971 Chevrolet Custom C20 of Ongaro & Sons Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning is a pretty trick piece. The suspension has been upgraded with components from a 1977 1/2 ton C10 which include: the rear end, front control arms with new bushings added, and disc brakes. The truck has been lowered with the following work being done recently: cut front springs, rear flip kit, rear shackle kit, frame C-notched, front and rear shocks, and a shock relocation kit. The rims are 18″ billet aluminum with custom made adapters for stock hubcaps. Granted this truck may not be for everyone, but in my opinion it’s definitely one to take a look at.

Mad Max Wasteland Weekend

Believe it or not, but every year in Southern California fans of the cult film MAD MAX gather for what is simply known as, “Wasteland Weekend”. Think of it as a mini Burning Man event, except without the naked hippie chicks, good music and weed. In fact basically it’s just a bunch of comic book loving adults prancing around in costumes pretending to be Mel Gibson before he went all bat-shit crazy on us. Check it out after the jump.

Off Road Racing

It’s finally happened. I must now figure out how to go off-road racing and this video is the reason why. It has finally convinced me that off-road desert racing is by far the coolest form of motorsport there is. Sure F1, WRC and even MOTO GP all provide a massive thrill factor, but if we’re being honest, there is nothing, and I mean NOTHING cooler than watching a full-on trophy truck run through the bumps at over 100 mph. You want awesome? Well then, here it is! Check it out after the jump.

eBay Deal of the Week: 1986 PORSCHE 944 TURBO

Posted in eBay Motors, General, Porsche, Promoted by MrAngry | November 11th, 2013 | 1 Response |

Porsche944_2

Back in the mid-1980′s the Porsche 944 was one bad-ass little sports car. It featured a high-revving 4-banger, that, if you decided to spend some extra loot, could be had in a turbo version. This is a 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo and believe it or not, it’s only got 18,409 miles on the clock. The seller wants $27,995.00, which is a bit nuts for this thing. However if you’re looking for the cleanest 944 on the planet, then you may just want to give this thing look at the link below.

Stuck Bad

Here in the United States we’re never more than a few hours from help if our cars or trucks break down. But down in Australia, in the outback, that’s a different story entirely. In the Australian TV series “All-4-Adventure”, Jase & Simon (the series two main characters) get into a sticky situation with their rigs, and it all goes from bad to worse when the tide changes.

1934PiersonBros_7

I sometimes wonder what will happen to classic cars and hot-rods once the older generation passes on. Muscle cars will most likely still be around, but I’m more concerned about the cars from the 1920′s-1950′s. What you are viewing here is a 1934 Ford coupe that’s been transformed into a Pierson Bros. Salt Flats tribute. Built the right way, this old Ford is equipped with a 1934 frame, steel firewall and cowl with functional vent, a fiberglass body, freshened up 5.0L V-8 and an AOD transmission. It also features a Petronix ignition, Edelbrock carb and a Snow White water pump system. The paint on the car is flawless as is the interior that houses Stewart Warner gauges and great looking bomber seats with leather inserts. This is a ride that anyone would be proud to own, so make sure to check it out and help save another classic!
