Why is it so hard to find these types of cars?
How valve cover gasket turned into valve cover.
What determines a car’s character?
Honestly, though, tell me that there isn’t a drunk Englishman (a tad repetitive, I guess) that’s done this already. Approach and departure angles for days!
I noticed I had not posted an update on the current project in the garage since dragging it home in July, so here is a project update on my grandfather and I’s latest project - A all steel 34 Ford pickup. We have decided on a true traditional show rod. The set year we decided on was a truck built around 57/58 with as…
As written about on Petrolicious:
Value: the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.

France’s car culture is a strange one. While events like the 24hrs of Le Mans draw massive crowds, loving cars is not deemed very socially acceptable. Between constictive speed cameras, diesels, and policies banning older cars, it’s easy to forget that France does have a car scene at all. However, a small classic car…

It is a chassis that is typically associated with the 4-door sedan (like the fire-breathing 500E Hammer) but they sold a few C124 designated coupes.…
Can anyone name all these vehicles? The only ones I can identify are the ford panel trucks. Cool gig for anyone who can pass off as a “contractor”
So we were messing around after the world Endurance Championship race today with overpowered stupidcars when I decided to see just how fast an X1/9 would go. Then I got onto the Rivals mode and did this. It is R class classic compacts division.
