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. Is it worth more money if the previous owner was famous - especially when the owner is an admitted habitual drunk and pill popper? » 12/10/13 11:40am 12/10/13 11:40am

Paul Newman's Supercharged V8 Volvo Wagon Up For Sale

For any V8 Volvo nut, finding Paul Newman's 960 for sale online is the equivalent of an archeologist finding Excalibur in a thrift store. This supercharged wagon is stuff of legends and the whereabouts of the "puffer" equipped custom was unknown...until now. » 12/01/13 8:45am 12/01/13 8:45am

This V8 Powered Ghia Looks Like A 911 Turbo Stung By Bees

It hasn't been confirmed on the CDC website, but rumor has it there is some sort of virus going around that makes people put their favorite classic car body on top of a V8 powered tube frame. The thrice painted BMW 2002 Cobra featured last month has a competitor for the "what is hiding under that sheet metal" trophy. » 11/19/13 4:31pm 11/19/13 4:31pm

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. This one must have slipped through a worm hole into ours. » 11/07/13 3:17pm 11/07/13 3:17pm

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. The guy who painted this C2 Vette probably thought he was skiing in the Alps or directing the Trans-Siberian Orchestra when he created this monster. » 10/09/13 12:43pm 10/09/13 12:43pm

This Thing Is The Pace Car Of The Zombie Apocalypse

The Volkswagen Type 181 was sold as the Kurierwagen in Germany but used the name Thing for the US Market - making the answer to "what is that thing?" a simple "yes." The Thing used a Karmann-Ghia floorpan and various parts from the Beetle, Transporter, etc, but this one was rebuilt with steel, rope and madness. » 9/30/13 2:14pm 9/30/13 2:14pm

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. This one received light log damage in the Battle of Endor, and the current seller took painstaking efforts to remove the Ewok nests before doing a full Imperial era correct restoration. » 9/24/13 3:51pm 9/24/13 3:51pm

Celebrate Rosh Hashanah With A Chevelle Wagon Personnel Carrier

Some kids prefer the factory stock "real life" appearance of a Matchbox 1/64 scale model to the outlandish styling and "tricked out" look of a Hot Wheels. But we at the Daily Turismo much prefer the wagon based military personnel carriers produced by the Israeli Gamda Koor company under the Sabra brand. » 9/05/13 4:27pm 9/05/13 4:27pm

The Best Front Wheel Drive Cars Have Mid Mounted Chevy V8s

The first generation Ford Festiva was a subcompact econobox designed by Mazda and equipped with a small 4-banger powering the front wheels...until some nutjob decided to put a V8 into this one. But what can only be described as the best of Frenchxican tradition, this Festiva is mid-engined and front-wheel-drive. » 8/14/13 4:50pm 8/14/13 4:50pm

The Mazdaspeed6 Is An Adult's STi/Evo

The Subaru STi and Mitsubishi Evo are all-wheel-drive rally machines for the street that combine tenacious all-wheel-drive grip, 6-speed gearboxes, turbocharged engines and sedan convenience...but...huge wings, vortex spikes, hood scoops, & pink emblems make them less than desirable to the discerning gentleman driver. » 8/13/13 1:23pm 8/13/13 1:23pm
