I've been doing some thinking lately. Mostly along the lines of which numbers would win the lotto so I wouldn't have to work anymore.

Hispano Alemán Vizcaya: The German-Spanish-Italian-Canadian Porsche…

I could talk about the Porsche 914 all day. Even though I love how it looks right out of the box, I can certainly understand why some don't. » 5/07/14 11:00am 5/07/14 11:00am

First Look: The Maserati GS Zagato IRL

The first shots of Zagato's coachbuilt GranSport coupe surfaced on Ultimate Car Page yesterday, providing the first look at the kind of exclusivity one custom-kitchen magnate's fortune can buy. Designers did work in the all-important helmet bubbles, though appear to have gotten a little curvilinear happy, like they'd… » 4/20/07 7:49am 4/20/07 7:49am
