The Allure of Car TV Shows

The Allure of Car TV Shows

I almost avoided writing about this. Every single automotive blog, website, forum, news agency, etc has written about Top Gear’s demise. I’m sure even some Old Order Mennonites found the news disturbing. But why would so many people defend someone who did something clearly in the wrong? Its because we loved that…
BMW: The End Of An Era

BMW: The End Of An Era

Three years ago I wrote the article titled “The Death of BMW’s M Brand”saying that the BMW M cars had become the Ultimate Poser Machine. But I didn’t realize how right I was until last Saturday when I went to a Chicago Region SCCA Autocross. There were two BMWs there and…
Bay Area 02 Vintage BMW Show

Bay Area 02 Vintage BMW Show

For the last few years, we have attended this event at the Brisbane Marina, just south of San Francisco. Its probably the best organized car show I have been too, especially for a show dedicated to a single model.  And for BMW, the 2002 really is the iconic car they…
For Sale: Vintage NASCAR ’66 Galaxie 

For Sale: Vintage NASCAR ’66 Galaxie 

This is a pretty cool “For Sale” post because of the car’s history. We love race cars, but old race cars are special. This one is a vintage nascar 1966 Galaxie needing a complete restoration. The seller claims that it is fully documented with pictures, and video footage from the 1960s and…
For the Love of Ford!

For the Love of Ford!

The Ford Escort might be the coolest of all the old school rear wheel drive rally cars. It was so light and so fast and so fun to drive that even today they are being converted into rally cars and fitted with crazy expensive race motors designed for open wheel…

The Ultimate Roadtrip?

The Ultimate Roadtrip?

I love road trips. Always have, always will. Living in several states has brought me cross country plenty of times. When it comes to long road trips, there are a few schools of thought. You could take the most direct route if you’re a practical type who is obsessed with the…
What Car Got You Started?

What Car Got You Started?

What was your first vehicle that got you interested in cars? Like really interested? And I don’t mean the one in the bedroom posters as kid..the dream cars, etc. I mean the first car that was yours to enjoy? Cheap, expensive, it doesn’t matter. All of us had that one car that changed us. My first…
Jeremy Clarkson Suspended From BBC

Jeremy Clarkson Suspended From BBC

We’re not sure what happened, but we saw on Jalopnik this morning that Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended and Top Gear won’t air this Sunday! What the hell? It has to be a massive human resource-like violation where company policy requires a suspension until the facts can be sorted out.…
For Sale: 1950 Cooper Streamliner

For Sale: 1950 Cooper Streamliner

You don't need this. No one does. But man is it cool. They just don't make anything like this anymore. Super lightweight and powered by a Norton Motorcycle engine attached to a 4 speed, the car started life as a 1950 Cooper MKIV. So this isn't an original Cooper Streamliner.…

Is It This Generation? Or This Generation Of Cars?

Is It This Generation? Or This Generation Of Cars?

There are people that claim my generation has lost its love for the automobile. They are totally wrong. My generation loves cars. But we love doing things ourselves, and are very informed. We are the first generation that truly grew up with the internet. We look up everything. We already know the million…
