A Group B Austin Metro Is The Only Point And Shoot You'll Ever Need

The Metro 6R4 went down in history as the ugliest Group B contender this side of a Citroën BX 4TC, the car that gave its engine to the Jaguar XJ220, and the naturally-aspirated pocket rocket surrounded by all those turbo giants. 30 years on, it remains just as exciting as at its premier. » 12/18/14 2:32pm 12/18/14 2:32pm

The Ford RS200 Demo Video Could Not Be More '80s

I keep forgetting to post this video because I always end up leaving it open and listening to the rockin' boppin' mid-'80s soundtrack. Trust me, this could not be more '80s if it was doing lines and tagging a subway train. » 9/11/14 12:00am 9/11/14 12:00am

I am not sure how unpopular of an opinion it is, but Group B seems to be the more popular of the two around these parts. But I have always though Group C was just more badass. I guess I am going to rant real quick like. » 4/27/14 12:01pm 4/27/14 12:01pm
