Cars and Coffee Charlotte(May 07, 2013)I knew someone who upgraded his Espirit with a T3/T4 hybrid turbo. Car shot flames out the exhaust like a flame thrower. It was featured in Turbo Magazine in the late 90's. Such a badass car.
Toyota GT86 Cabrio in Patent Images(Apr 16, 2013)Although I did used to publish my own import racing magazine in the 90s so I got to have quite a bit of fun. If you look on YouTube for a jet powered Ford Focus station wagon, it's an exhibition car we built. 'Twas fun to drive.
Toyota GT86 Cabrio in Patent Images(Apr 16, 2013)I agree with the feminine comment but some open cars do convey more masculinity. Open Mustangs are one. This one is unisex IMO. I used to race a Mercury Capri XR2 and I miss the drop top on it but I ended up blowing it up on the track. Too much boost
Toyota GT86 Cabrio in Patent Images(Apr 16, 2013)There are 9 of them at my office. Granted its the right demographic, there are 6 FR-S and 3 BRZ's. I thought about getting one as well until I counted how many there are at work. But then again we also have an MP4-12C, DB7, 430 Scuderia, 2 Aventadors
Mexicans to Build New Alpine A-110(Apr 12, 2013)Ford didn't make the first car, but they established the assembly line...or at least they're credited for it. Not sure why people keep thinking ford made the automobile.
Defunct Euro Carmakers: TVR(Apr 12, 2013)Oh damn I'm in the same boat as others. Didn't know they closed shop. I'd been wondering why they've been so quiet as of late. Always loved their non-conformist designs. Seeing a car on Password Swordfish made me happy.
Top 5 Mercedes Supercars(Apr 12, 2013)To further comments about Mission Viejo below, one of the CLK GTR's was confiscated due to several dealers being involved with selling and buying large shipment of ingredients for meth. I got to see inside the warehouse they were impounded at.
Top 5 Mercedes Supercars(Apr 12, 2013)Such a gorgeous machine. I still remember my heart lurching when one went vertical during, I think, Le Mans.
Supercars to Star in NFS Movie(Apr 09, 2013)I prefer the MP12 over the P1 too. Not saying I'd turn one down, just that if the opportunity came up and I had to make a choice I'd take the MP12.
Hunt Valley Cars and Coffee Turns 1(Apr 09, 2013)Agreed Jacob. It's a car that definitely deserves respect for what it has and can do but the styling has always been a bit on the bland side. But that's normal for Honda.
Hunt Valley Cars and Coffee Turns 1(Apr 09, 2013)Someone in my office has one of these. So much fun to drive. Got to take it for a spin on our lunch. I can see why it's so expensive.
Bugatti to Reveal Faster Veyron?(Apr 09, 2013)I'm thinking it'll hit a top speed between the 270-280 mph range. With 1600hp I don't believe that's enough to clear 290 if I remember my fluid dynamics classes correctly.
Jaguar Could Build More XKR-S GTs(Apr 09, 2013)He lost a bet with the Jaguar execs saying, "I will tattoo purple coloring over my entire body if Jaguar decides to make more of these. Any gambling punks feeling l
Polestar S60 Headed for Production?(Apr 09, 2013)Glad to see Volvo stepping up again. Always had a soft spot for them and had been hoping for a sportier, sexier car from them.
Subaru Unleashes WRX Concept(Mar 28, 2013)It's a gorgeous concept and I love the sleeker lines but I agree it looks too little like a rally car. But then again the RS200 doesn't look like a rally car either.
Porsche Prices 911 GT3 at $130k(Mar 28, 2013)I've driven a few GT3's in the past and they are the epitome of NA Porsches. An absolute blast to drive and completely addicting.
One-off Super Snake Up for Auction(Mar 18, 2013)225 on street Toyo Tires here. Built the Focus This! jet dragster in the late 90's sponsored by Ford and Toyo along with a few other contributors. The goal was to see how fast we could go on street radials. You can see videos on YouTube.
