Everything You Need To Know About The $1.3 Million McLaren P1

The McLaren P1 will have its official debut next week at the Geneva Motor Show, but since we know almost everything about it already, there is no point in hiding anymore.

The Nismo Nissan GT-R Is Coming

Nissan's Nismo division is where they stick all the engineers obsessed with speed. You know the ones. They even have to urinate faster than the person in the next stall.

Chopped and Dropped

It was a scorching hot August summer day in the San Fernando Valley. I was driving my brand new 1991 Ford Escort GT through an industrial area to a muffler shop. A friend of mine told me that they could lower my car for sixty bucks. I pulled into the work bay and a guy with a welding helmet climbed down into the pit… » 2/25/13 4:36pm 2/25/13 4:36pm

I Bought The Top Gear Merkur XR4Ti

It's been a bad secret for the last few months, but I thought I should let everyone know, officially, that I am the proud owner of the most famous Merkur XR4Ti in the world.

This Honduran Subaru Nut Writes Awesome How-To Manuals

When you own an old, no-longer-popular beater car, it can sometimes be difficult to find parts and information. My brand of automotive pain/pleasure currently lies in the realm of obsolete Subarus, and while they do have a decent following, they've never attracted the kind of money-spewing fanboys that, say, small… » 2/25/13 2:23pm 2/25/13 2:23pm
