1966 Dodge Coronet

This is a 1966 Dodge Coronet 440, and it’s as stock as they come. We’re talking drum brakes, 14-inch steel wheels with bias ply tires and a bench seat that was made for drive-in movies. I found this beauty at a local car show and instantly fell in love with it, because it reminded me of an old moonshine or getaway car that you’d see in any number of b-movies made in the 1970’s. This car is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and hot damn if it wasn’t exactly what we ordered.

This is one pissed off ram!

Angry Ram

Aside from my cat Garrison, I have no interest in animals whatsoever. In fact aside from certain ones being quite tasty, all they really do is annoy me. Take for instance the pissed off ram that’s featured in this video. Not only is he blocking a perfectly good motorcycle trail, but instead of simply moving out of the way he feels the need to make his presence known by charging at the rider. Really? Was there a reason for that? My guess is no. He’s just lucky the motorcyclist had a sense of humor and not a gun or that little ram may have ended up on a dinner plate.

Golf GTI Mk.VII: CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS

Posted in Best of, Car Reviews, DRIVE, European, European Review, European Rides, General, Rides, Videos, Volkswagen by MrAngry | July 1st, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Golf GTI Mk VII

Back in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, if you wanted a hot-hatch, then you only looked at one car; the Volkswagen Golf GTI. It’s small four cylinder engine packed high-revs, smiles galore and giant killer characteristics. However over time the little Golf lost much of its hard edge in favor of creature comforts and ride quality. There’s now a new GTI on the market, aptly named the MK. VII and VW says it’s better in every way. Chris Harris recently grabbed one and gave it a proper flogging so as to let us know if it’s still the same old bloated GTI of the past OR if VW finally got their act together and produced a car that the enthusiasts of old will really want to drive.

eBay Deal of the Week: 1990 Molser Consulier Targa

Posted in Best of, Domestic Rides, eBay Motors, General, Other, Promoted, Rides by MrAngry | July 1st, 2013 | 2 Responses |

1990MolserConsulierTarga_1

Spyker, Koenigsegg, Bugatti, Pagani and Mosler. Boutique car companies who have made names for themselves selling rare icons of automotive performance to the public. Today these companies are fairly well known, but in the beginning they were little more than brief mentions in the automotive rags of the day. Mosler is one such company, and this 1990 Molser Consulier Targa that currently resides on eBay is one of the cars that helped put them on the map. Oddly enough, when you read the spec sheet on the Consulier Targa, performance is the last thing that comes to mind. For instance, the engine was a 2.2-liter Turbo II Chrysler engine. It was the same one that powered K-cars, Minivans, and the Dodge Daytona’s of the day. Power was estimated at around 200 hp, with a 0-60 time of 5 seconds. The big news however was that Consulier was offering $25,000 to any regular production car who could beat their cars around a race track.

The one you see here has just 11,288 miles on the clock, has never been titled, and is one of 100 units built from 1985-1993. That means this is one very rare car. Click through to check out more pics and a video, or click on the link below to go directly to the ad.

Road Test: Spyker C8 Aileron — MR PORTER

Posted in Best of, Car Reviews, European, European Review, European Rides, General, Spyker, Videos by MrAngry | June 26th, 2013 | 1 Response |

Spyker C6 Aileron

If you’re looking for an exotic car that not only goes against convention, but against everything those “other” exotic manufacturers are doing, then the Spyker C8 Aileron may just fit your bill. The C8 Aileron features a light weight aluminum chassis, an interior that’s made from some of the most expensive cows in history, and a 4.2-liter Audi V8 that pumps out 400 hp (good for 187 mph). It’s also one of the most stunning automobiles to have been created in the last 30 years. The Aileron is not your average super car and is therefore, not for the average enthusiast. It’s not the fastest, best handling or most expensive, but it is a solid performer that will garner looks of amazement wherever it goes.

1964 Corvette XP-819: Jay Leno’s Garage

Posted in Best of, Chevrolet, Corvette, Funny Videos, General, Import Review, Maserati, Morgan, Pagani, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | June 21st, 2013 | 3 Responses |

Corvette XP-19

Since the Corvette’s inception in 1953, there have been rumors swirling around the brand that one day, a rear or mid-engine car may actually pop up. Understand now that the United States has only made two rear/mid engine cars; the Pontiac Fiero and the Chevrolet Corvair. However in 1964 the Corvette XP-819 prototype was developed and man-O-man would this have been an interesting car. The engine was mounted behind the rear wheels like a Porsche 911, it had urethane safety bumpers, a rack & pinon steering rack and a one piece clam shell hood. All amazingly innovative stuff for 1964. Owner Mike Yager showed off his one-off rear-engined prototype at this years Amelia Island show and to say the car was amazing would be an understatement.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Ridelust Review

Posted in Car Reviews, Chevrolet, Domestic, Domestic Review, Domestic Rides, Featured, General, Rides by MrAngry | June 18th, 2013 | 4 Responses |

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

From stem to stern, the 2014 Chevy Silverado has been redesigned and re-engineered with the goal of becoming the best ½-ton truck on the market. New, more aggressive sheet metal, three new engines for increased power and fuel economy, and a refined interior help make the new 1500 feel as though it’s anything but pickup like. Combine that with a cabin that’s luxury car quiet and you’ve got yourself a truck that was designed specifically to take out its competitors. Understanding the importance of redesigning (not refreshing) a truck like the Silverado is one thing, but pulling it off in a glorious fashion such as this is something entirely different.

Ridelust Review: 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392

Posted in Car Reviews, Dodge, Domestic, Domestic Review, Domestic Rides, Featured, General, Rides by MrAngry | June 12th, 2013 | 6 Responses |

2013 Challenger SRT8 392

PRO’s: Great power, comfort and size make this a muscle car you can live with everyday.

CON’s: To big to be a great handler, high price, cheapish interior, manual transmission.

FINAL THOUGHT: More of grand tourer than an actual muscle car, the 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 combines big grunt and heritage with all day usability and serious open road prowess.

If you’re into muscle cars then you no doubt know that there are three main contenders in the marketplace. There’s the Ford Mustang, the Chevrolet Camaro and of course, the car you see here, the 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392. Dodge however has taken a little different approach to Challenger than it’s competitors by not trying to make a sports car out of a muscle car, but instead, just making a really good muscle car with great grand touring properties. How do I know this you might ask? Well, in a quest to find out I drove this sucker 1,100 miles in 3 days by running from San Fransisco to Los Angeles and back over a beautiful California weekend.
