Over the years, I designed quite a sizeable amount of cars (on paper that is). Today I was cleaning up my room, so naturally I rediscovered some of my old gems. Since I don’t really have any real use for them, I may as well show a selection of the better ones to you. Question is, do I make one huge post with all of… »
My third new battery was the charm - The Nighthawk 650, a.k.a. #ManlyManBike to my friends, lives. I didn’t go out on the street today, just idled it for about 10 minutes once I finally got the motor spinning and let the engine, gas, and oil come back to life after winter storage. Sta-bil did its job, I’m glad to say.… »
So, I responded to a (slightly old) post about a guy who wanted to get into motorcycling. Too often, I see discussions about beginner bikes centered around how much power a certain bike has or “That’s way too fast for a beginner!” and in my experience, there’s so much more to it than that, so I decided to discuss it a… »
My guess is its the Panamera restyle...one had the Turbo quad exhaust the other had dual outlets. They both we hauling ass on to the freeway :) »
I’m selling the XJ to look for a better winter DD and possible car hauler. 4.0L auto with 251k miles, 4x4, 3” lift, 31” BFG mud terrains. Asking $2000 obo. »
The garage is often a neglected, messy space. With a little organization and a few handy projects, though, we can get much more use out of our garages and also modernize them. Here are our top 10 garage upgrade ideas.
Last night I made a frustrated post mocking Tavarish’s method. Namely, looking up an exotic marque, then listing them by Price: Low to High and arbitrarily picking a top trim mid-size sedan to compare the price to. I know you can buy a 15 year old S-class for peanuts, what about the other costs? The off-handed… »
Times were different in 1989. Here I am a mile or two from the landesgrenze with East Germany. It was an easier time to be in the United States military.
The mission here was to design a car that idealized 1955-1957 styling cues. 1950-1954 is too rounded and mundane, 1958-1959 is too excessive and gaudy, especially with the quad headlamps that many automakers used. ‘55-’57 scores a nice balance in terms of 1950s car design, all in my opinion. »
My sister mentioned she wants a car for the summer, so I suggested that if she buys the right already-depreciated beige-mobile, she could sell it later and be minimally out of pocket. Am I on the right track? I figure any sort of higher mileage Japanese econobox should do the trick, despite my Jalop leanings. »
