I just test drove a Model S P85D as part of an event put on by Tesla. It was definitely the most fascinating car I have ever driven. However, in order to talk about it, I first need to talk about the Lotus Elise. Stay with me here… »
Usually, at some point in the day, I find myself browsing random motorcycle listings on Ebay. It’s a time-honored event that typically allows easy passage of the after-lunch food coma. Sometimes during these unsuspecting digital safaris one catches a glimpse of an endangered beast that lurks in the shadows. »
So, I finally got a chance to go on vacation this week. I’m not a beach person, so I took the complete opposite route to most vacation goers: I went north.
JCVA had our second meet this weekend, in the rain. There were some really cool cars that showed, check it out. »
A British F1 fan and weekend racer recently bought Rubens Barrichello’s 2007 Honda RA107 at auction for £37,000. The Honda F1 chassis was bought with many of the unobtanium parts included, but he is now taking to the internet for help in fully restoring his new toy to near-hairsplitting performance. »
So, I saw a Honda Del Sol today with collector plates. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Oh, and it was an automatic with a fart cannon. »
Words simply can not do this car justice. In the realm of exalted sports cars, inhabited by the likes of the E30 M3 and Mazda Miata, The NSX has a distinctly different flavor. »
Remember when Jalopnik had the Used Car Face-Off? It seems that it was a feature done by Zac Estrada and has since stopped in the end of 2013. Well, today I decided to revive it to compare three Japanese luxobarges in our area. I have no intention of buying any since my little Swede wagon comes in on Tuesday, so this… »
Andries van Overbeeke keeps on producing beautiful F1 concepts. After a take on Williams and Red Bull, he released his most extreme vision yet: a McLaren-Honda for they hypothetical 2019 rulebook. »
As you probably know as a fellow Opponaut, it is pretty common within our circles to lambaste automakers for making the lack of driving lights/foglamps blatantly common on base level cars. Case in point: On Hooniverse... Now, just because this is the only example online I could find doesn’t mean there aren’t other… »
Update on this morning: It looks like the vehicle in question was piloted by a 19 year old kid who spent the night out with friends and fell asleep at the wheel after dropping someone off at the airport. The fire hydrant landed about 30 feet away and we still don’t have a lamp post. No one was injured (except the… »
Just like half of the teenage drivers out there, I learned how to drive in a Civic, and I still often times drive my Civic (2007 Sedan). Now many car enthusiasts out there will go and say it is Rice or that it isn’t a proper car with front wheel drive and a four banger etc...and to that I acknowledge the latter.… »
The last Honda-swapped Mini we featured was a raucous, rear-engined, rear-drive donut machine with a turbocharged K20 packing 495 horsepower. With “just” 185 horsepower out of a JDM Type-R B16B 1.6-liter pushing around a 1,400-lb curb weight, this Mini has a power:weight ratio of a C6 Z06. In a short-wheelbase… »
This morning I woke to the sound of rending metal. I got out of bed, went downstairs and was greeted by my parents who told my brother and me to join them outside. There was a huge Pierce ladder truck parked sideways in the street in front of the house to our left, and in front of it was a trail of broken branches and… »
Earlier this week I was one of the motoring writers invited by Honda to attend the launch of the new Civic Type R over in Bratislava, Slovakia. As you can tell by this “team photo” I had done, I got to spend some time on track with some pretty cool guys.
