Building My BMW E36 M3 Rally Car Is a Race Itself

My first rally race with my newish-to-me 1995 BMW M3 is coming up on me faster than the trees I hope to be near-missing at the event next week. I still have a whole spreadsheet of service items to get done. I keep wondering this to myself: “Am I screwed?”Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

I love the sport, but I’m truly struggling with that last thing.Read more… Continue Reading […]

I Didn’t Let a Logistical Nightmare Stop Me From Buying This BMW E36 M3

“Are you a masochist?” is what someone asked me in a Facebook comment last week where I was looking for some car buying advice. Honestly, it was a fair question. Especially considering the unnecessary trials I tend to put myself when buying used cars, which would continue later that week leading up to my purchase […]

I Dumped My High-Mileage BMW M5 For A Honda S2000 And I Have Seen The Light

I had a 2006 BMW M5 with more than 180,000 miles dialed up in my possession the past four months or so. Well, until Sunday. It was fast, loud, fun to drive, and honestly, in pretty desperate need of repair. Instead of doing those repairs, I decided I’d trade the car for a much better […]

I Paid Someone To Vandalize My Truck And It Was The Best Idea

Two years ago I traded a 2000 Toyota Tundra for a 1975 International Scout and have been building the old truck into a manifestation of my fantasies ever since. Specifically, my dream of a jungle-themed Scout on an adventure from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. That’s where my shiny new hood bird comes in.Read more… […]

These Nuts Are Building A Caster-Wheeled Drift Cart Out Of A Volvo V70 Chopped In Half

The mad scientists at Hoonigan are big fans of caster-wheeled Crazy Carts—the cool little toys made for drifting—but Crazy Carts just don’t have enough power. So, they’re taking a front-wheel-drive Volvo V70, hacking it in half and making their own giant Crazy Cart for lunatic grown-ups. Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

I’m Fixing Up This Chevy Corvair And Making Up Its Racing History As I Go Along

Why the hell do people buy old-ass cars from the 1960s? They cost too much, for one thing. They’re unreliable to operate as a daily, with their pesky two and four barrels. They stop like shit. And most of the time, they smell like a Shell station. Designed by guys who fought Hitler and Tojo […]

For $2,400, Could This Duo Of 1974 Saab Sonetts Be ‘Two’ Much Trouble?

Doubling down is a risky move in blackjack, but one that could result in twice the payout. That same strategy might be applied to today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe brace of Saabs. We’ll have to see if their combo price stacks the deck against them.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

At $1,500, Is This “Fair” 1990 VW Corrado G60 A Fair Deal?

Unlike some other cars in VW’s lineup, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Corrado didn’t come with a name derived from a wind, but instead from the Spanish word for ‘run.’ Let’s see if this running g60 is worth running over to buy.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com
