If your exotic sports car was stolen decades ago, don’t give up hope just yet. As it turns out, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection can end up recovering your rosso corsa wonder, even if it’s 28 years later some bastards took her.
If you’re in Austin this weekend, whether it’s for MotoGP or just the tacos, you need to get on down to the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show on the East Side. The admission’s free!
Maxwell Hazan ha built some of the most beautiful and recognizable motorcycles and his latest, “The Musket,” is certainly a looker. This short film shows some of the process of the bike being conceptualized and built.
There is a reason why sportbikes are long, keep a lot of weight over the front, and have front ends that don’t turn a ton and have beefy steering stabilizers: it’s so you don’t kill yourself. But, if you’re going to kill yourself, doing it on a Ducati Panigale-powered Grom is a great way to do it.
You’ve seen these types of cars driving around everywhere – the low-riding cruisers, the lit-up rides and all the rest – but the real question is whether or not you know where they came from. Or, when they came from.
Harley-Davidson is out with a mildly dismal quarterly earnings report, falling the most since the depths of the Great Recession six years ago and lowering its yearly shipment estimates. But the real issue is sales of one of its core money-maker – customs – are falling through the floor.
Viva Las Vegas is one of the most famous traditional hot rod and custom car shows in the world. Held in Vegas every spring, the show usually brings out some of the most interesting hot rods and customs the West Coast has to offer. Luckily filmmaker Josh Clason produced this well shot video capturing some of the…
The owner of one of the nation's largest forums for Nissan Skyline fans got a call three weeks ago from his wife, telling him that Homeland Security agents were on their doorstep looking to seize his Skylines. Their goal? "To get them off the road."
Caught in the wilds of SEMA out behind the Las Vegas convention center, this moon buggy-type rock crawler sports a hydraulic motor in each massive wheel for maximum traction control. Looks like fun, even in a parking lot.
Ford brought a stealth version of its Police Interceptor to SEMA, sporting blacked-out lenses, a one-inch suspension drop and wider tires. Perfect for undercover work, except for, you know, the chrome-rimmed wheels and bright-red brake calipers.
Recently, the feds have had a field day seizing Skylines and other performance vehicles brought over via the gray market. Reader Erik snagged these photos of an auction-ready "export only" R33 Skyline GT-R and the paper work in Connecticut.
The folks over at Jalopy Journal dug up a real gem the other day, the Norman Timbs Buick Special . The car was built in the late forties by the racecar designer and cost the princley sum of about $10,000 to put together. The aluminum body over tube frame stretches out to 17.5′ long (same as my Lincoln) with a 117″…
The springy tuners at H&R have turned their attention to the 2007 Lincoln MKZ, giving the AWD euro-luxo fighter even more of that euro-luxo look with a monochromatic black custom grille and 3D Carbon front spoiler. The more athletic stance comes courtesy of an H&R suspension, which lowers the car 2.5 inches. The MKZ…
July 9th at the Holiday Bowl in Hayward, CA, the Vultures car club and their invitees congregated to celebrate the glory of the traditional rod and custom. We weren't able to make it this year, but if last year's show was any indication, this is one of the best car shows happening anywhere. We rank it with…
Okay, let's get this straight right off the bat: we love traditional hot rods and customs. We love Carl Perkins. We love the Blasters. And we think girls in sexy outfits "inspired" by the fashions of the '50s are really freakin' hot. But we're entirely sick of this whole rockabilly badass lifestyle. Case in point, we…
