“Classic car.” A term that’s bandied about all the time anymore. So, what makes a car “classic”? Is it age (I argue against that, as a Yugo is a classic by age.), looks, pedigree, performance? Or some intangible? Did it have some quality that set it above the rest? Or was it a ground breaking first somehow?
What happened here, I cannot know. But someone is doing spring cleaning a little early:
I love the two tone paint. Car was in unbelievable condition. I love classic Rolls so much.
I usually associate beautiful old cars with musty warehouses or garages that have a lingering smell of gasoline, the kind of place where work is done and work is completed. RM Sotheby’s has performed the remarkable trick of shaking this association entirely out of my mind.
Do you have insomnia? Do you have a love for classic 80s Monster Trucks? Well tonight’s showings are for you! Experience classic Monster Trucks from the early days, when steel bodies and KC lights ruled the arenas. So sit back and enjoy classic Monster Trucking at its finest.
Finally, FINALLY, I’m back home from my summer of all work and little play and am reunited with many of the joys of home. Not the least of which is my lovely red 914, which you may have heard about by now.
This is my first ever oppo post. I will be reviewing my black on black 1988 BMW 325iS 5-speed coupe. Car is completely stock except for the catback exhaust.
I’ve always considered myself a lover of all things with a motor. Whether it was one of many Corvettes my dad has owned, or the tractor down on our family farm, I’ve always been fascinated by the design, the looks, their operation. But one thing that I’ve never done a whole lot of is actual work on a car. Sure, I’ve…
Living in the shadows of the larger and more widely known Mexican road race, La Carrera Panamericana, there exists another race held in Northern Mexico that boasts the same amount of speed stages for a fraction of the cost. This is the Chihuahua Express.
When it comes to 914 modifications, the ideas are basically endless...
It’s been about 6 months of 914 ownership. I’ve spent about 40% of the purchase price on fixing things, and have maybe 100 miles on the car. Yet, 2500 miles from home and away from the car for 3 months, it’s what I think about most other than my wife and dog (and work). How did I get here with this silly, cool little…
Beautiful, just, beautiful. That’s the only way I can describe this Aventurine Green 993 Turbo. It was by far my favorite car hanging out at Period Correct last Saturday, a title not easily won. In addition to this final edition of air cooled wonderfulness, there were a number of other interesting vehicles on hand, or…
JCVA had our second meet this weekend, in the rain. There were some really cool cars that showed, check it out.
Some folks look after their old cars and some just don’t
I saw a Lambo. It says so on the side so it has to be legit.
Over the past year, I’ve been lucky enough to drive some of the coolest cars on the planet and live out my boyhood dreams. I drove a Viper TA which was once a poster hanging on my bedroom wall, I drove an honest to god supercar when McLaren dropped off a 650S, and the absolutely incredible Morgan Three-Wheeler. I’ve…
So, I detailed a 1965 Thunderbird at work today (not this exact one, but this same color), and having not spent much time around 60’s cars, I was absolutely astonished at just how awesome this interior was. Look at the HVAC controls in the top center of the dashboard. Changing the fan settings makes you feel like you…
Our 1990 Miata has hit the 25 year old model year mark. Georgia doesn't have any requirements other than the car be 25 years old so why not?
