Unique of the Week: 1993 BMW M5 Wagon(May 04, 2013)If all 50 states agreed the federal gov. Would probably get involved like they did with health care, what a pain in the ass. I live in SC and we have no emission regulations. Great idea if people are responsible.
Unique of the Week: 1993 BMW M5 Wagon(May 04, 2013)I love me some wagons!
In the last four years I've owned 3 wagons. Civic wagovan, Volvo V 70 T5 and Buick Roadmaster. Beats the hell out of a minivan
Volvo Drops Plans for Upmarket Sedan(Apr 27, 2013)S90 and v90 possibly a c90 with performance tunes to combat with AMG and BMW's M division by Polestar. Using the V8 or V6 with turbos (keep it green) and sell for $50~$65k, depending on options
Chevy to Offer Camaro Rolling Chassis(Mar 30, 2013)@ Colby, my comment was meant as a joke, for you to call me a biased moron and to have not checked my history of defending all manufacturers is ignorant. Don't be such a fan boy!
Chevy to Offer Camaro Rolling Chassis(Mar 30, 2013)Is this not how most Chevys end up anyways? They took all the work out of it except for taking the wheels off and sitting it up on blocks.
Straight to the trailer park!
Japanese Tuning Icons Part 2: Mitsubishi 3000GT(Dec 14, 2012)@Jordan and Matt, the 276 hp was a "gentleman's agreement". Car company's agreed to keep power on a level playing field and focus on who could build the best car not just the fastest.
Japanese Tuning Icons Part 2: Mitsubishi 3000GT(Dec 14, 2012)My father was looking at buying one of these, it belonged to Chipper, the Atlanta Braves pitcher. As fast and sexy as they were, I recall maybe two out a dozen or so that didn't leak oil.
Buick to Revive the Grand National?(Nov 26, 2012)Buick used the Grand National and T Type in the mid 90's on their four door FWD Regals. Even if GM brings back the name(s) I'm not sure if they can carry the essence of what the GNX was and not a direct competitor for let's say an Infinity coupe.
Holman & Moody Mustang Commemorates Tour de France(Nov 06, 2012)Huh, Holman and Moody did nothing more than allow Ford to use their name on this car and approve of the design. Lee makes it very clear they do not tune f.i. cars. At best they will cut a cam!
DFA: Lada Driver Lucky to be Alive(Oct 31, 2012)It looks like the driver comes through the windshield at 0:19. It happens so quick it's hard to see but there were two people in the car. The passenger climbs out at the end.
Subaru BRZ STI to Pack 280 HP(Oct 23, 2012)Toyota is ousting the TRD designation due to unwanted criticism, 'turd'. They are suppose to be changing to the TMG (Toyota Motorsports Group) by 2014 not to be confused with the TMg R&D as they are separate entities.
2015 Mustang to Pack Turbo Four?(Oct 22, 2012)I applaud Ford for their new design language, the Taurus and Explorer are classy looking vehicles in my opinion. If Ford can pull enough of the Evos into the Mustang, tastefully, I think Ford will have a global hit.
Cosworth is Up For Sale(Oct 19, 2012)It was the XR4TI in the US. It used the same 2.3 turbo as the SVO Mustang, T Bird turbo coupe and Cougar XR7. Stock not very quick but had lots of potential.
FR-S/GT86 the First of Three New Toyota Sportscars(Oct 17, 2012)Toyota has enough fwd cars, give us something with AWD for the higher tier and mid engine for entry level sports cars. Between the already existing Yotas and Lexus, the basics are covered
NFL Running Back Gets a Twin-Turbo Audi R8(Sep 28, 2012)@ Tara, UR has built a reputation for modifying high end cars. The 2000 hp Lambo is still a work in progress that seems to be built with hopes and high expectations
Shelby's Legacy: Shelby Mustangs(Aug 28, 2012)Sam, they did use the 427. You could order just about any engine you wanted to. A couple of years ago there was a '67 gt500 with the 427 on eBay for sale. I think asking price was $600,000
Unearthed: 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT(Jul 28, 2012)Carry over into the following year. With the increase of power and refinements to the handling the Fieros was a scheduled to be a fierce little car. However, when GM started testing the new Fieros thee was concern that this little rocket was going to
Unearthed: 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT(Jul 28, 2012)The prototype scheduled for 1989 was to use the dual quad 3.4 literV6 220 hp from the Lumina z34/ mote Carlo z34. Lotus had already improved on suspension in 1988, so that was to
Unearthed: 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT(Jul 28, 2012)Between myself and other family and friend, we have collectively owned five Fieros. Only one of which ever had a fire, due to a leaking oil pump.
Record Auction Sales: Ferrari 250(Jun 11, 2012)The Holman and Moody shop here in Charlotte had two of the 330 cars. There were 7 replicas built using a true 330 car for reference. All 7 cars used the 1959-1961(?) 330 Gt coupe chassis and running gear. There is still one in the shop :)
Italian Exotic Icons: Ferrari F40(Jun 07, 2012)But much like the 250gto, M.B. 300sl's, x and k types, the F40 will always be a recognizable car not just by its looks 50 years from now.
Italian Exotic Icons: Ferrari F40(Jun 07, 2012)The edgy styling that caught your eye to start with. If it were not for the 250gto why would Ferrari not build the F40, because evolution is unnecessary? I love modern cars of all kinds but it is the classics that really steal my heart!
Italian Exotic Icons: Ferrari F40(Jun 07, 2012)@Ben, then why admire cars for their looks or performance? Theses are the core essence of what makes a car a great car. The thing about the automobile is that through evolution things will be trumped whether it is performance numbers, track times or
