    v-max engined car

    I know this link has been posted before. I just am curious about this builders transmission solution. Builder of this cool vehicle says that the engine turns different direction than a car so he spent $7,000 on a transmission build to make it work with a car rear diff. Many dwarf cars used he...

    Don't get your car confiscated in Chicago

    You may not get it back! Quite a story, Chicago, because of IL 'home rule,' their laws 'trump' (yes, I really said that) state law. The individual described here probably owes far-more in storage fees than the 1996 Cadillac is worth...

    buy a cool car for not much $, vehicles need work

    If you live close to Detroit, I'd be looking at what this guy has, to see about picking up a project: http://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news/michigan-man-forced-to-sell-20-cars-a-month-has-resorted-to-scrapping-some-cool-cars/ar-BBH2i6z?li=BBisPVf&ocid=ientp Ron Dauzet, a Michigan man whose...

    how do you pronounce that car name?

    This is a fun watch, listening to and watching the car show reps pronounce their marque's names. My favorites are the Abarth lady, the Alfa Romeo lady, the Koenigsegg lady, the OPEL lady, the Lamborghini lady, the Pagani lady, the Peugeot lady, well, I guess, all the women announcers! I didn't...

    MI car collector has to liquidate to avoid penalties

    To Ron Dauzet, it’s a collection of more than 200 cars—some common, some rare, everything from old BMWs and Mercedes-Benzes to MGs and Jeeps and Porsches. But to the Michigan town he lives in, it’s an unlicensed junkyard, an eyesore, and the cars must go. But Ron fears they must go at a...

    He urged drivers to be aware of motorcycles. Two months later, a car killed him

    http://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article159411119.html This is so sad!!! I cannot stress enough about situational awareness, especially that late in the evening/night..... Apparently the two on the bike were northbound in the center lane of Seminole Boulevard approaching 114th...

    World's Ugliest Car

    Now, I have to qualify this: some literal wreck that someone has managed to return to the road, after experiencing serious crash damage, still bearing the damage in-evidence is hereby excluded from consideration. My thread, my rule. This "car" may be functional, but I have never seen a "blend"...

    restoration of Mario Andretti's rookie season Indy race car

    This car was re-done by a guy I went through school with, Steve Panarites. He's been building street cars and race cars for decades. This won 1st place in class at Amelia Island recently. Who wouldn't want to be coached on how to run this, and then being turned-loose for awhile? Read the...

    Like the Cheetah car? See the Dailu V-8

    Something different, not many produced, not a street car, but then the Cheetah wasn't either. Still very interesting, and moderately successful. I know the cousin of the Canadian guy who built it and raced it. There were 5 body styles, essentially they were one-offs, each built to improve on...

    Cheetah kit car in Florida

    Something interesting, not really anything for me, but I'm posting it to show what's out there. A replica body probably made in Indy, of the 1960's Bill Thomas Cheetah. With running gear, not sure why it only has a 3 speed manual tranny? Also the Chrysler 451 cu.in. engine I suppose is a...

    not a bike but V-12 1500 cc Honda Formula 1 car 1965

    hand-made VW/Porsche bare-bones car

    Ever think about trying your hand at building a car from scratch? The chassis, body, interior, using someone's engine, suspension, and other mechanical pieces? Well this guy in MN does it and here's a R&T article on his efforts. This particular car is a VW/Porsche origin, claimed HP is 120-130...
