All 60s Muscle Cars Look Alike, So Just Buy Something Cheap

Michele's 1973 BMW 2002 - The Schmetterling

About three years into dating my husband I decided that I really wanted to have a project car. I had spent time "helping" my mom and grandfather work on cars as I was growing up and then I had seen how much enjoyment my husband got from working on cars.

A Hilarious Long-Winded Craigslist Ad For A Long-Wheelbase Merc

Sometimes a car listing is worthy of attention not because it is a cool car, but because it comes wrapped in a funny advertisement and the invectives/hyperbole/nonsense normally reserved for a reviewer/internet-pundit/bathrobe-blogger are pre-written in the seller's own words. » 2/21/14 2:29pm 2/21/14 2:29pm

Billie Joe From Green Day Owned This BMW 2002Tii For 10 Months

Ebay is flooded with auctions that attempt to cash in on the allure and mystique of the rich and famous - but none as shameless as "celebrity" owned cars.

This V8 RWD Focus Is A Treat From An Alternate Dimension

The 1st gen Focus was a cheap front-wheel-drive economy car, but if you subscribe to William James' theory of unlimited parallel universes, there has to be a universe where the Focus was a cheap rear-wheel-drive V8 economy car.

You Don't Need To Be Named Elon To Afford This Lotus Elan +2

The Lotus Elan +2 was a long wheelbase coupe-only version of the lightweight Elan and added back seats in exchange for a few pounds of extra mass. As luck would have it, you don't need to be a self made millionaire submarine enthusiast to buy an Elan +2 and you find one on ebay for less than a new Camry. » 10/18/13 2:46pm 10/18/13 2:46pm

This Is Why You Don't Paint Your Corvette While High On Drugs

People did a lot of drugs in the '70s. Folks took all kinds of stuff and they didn't know what was in it or what the side effects would be.

This Thing Is The Pace Car Of The Zombie Apocalypse

AT-ST Imperial Scout Walker Only Used On Weekends By Retired Jedi

The All Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST) is a bipedal troop transport, dubbed the chicken walker for its awkward gait.
