Fairlane-Driving Cops Take No Guff From Gibberish-Ass Hippie Dope Fiends

What kind of car would a couple of no-nonsense plainclothes Los Angeles cops drive in 1967? Forget those big lumbering full-size sedans! Joe Friday and Bill Gannon insisted on a snappy-looking '67 Fairlane. » 3/28/09 5:30pm 3/28/09 5:30pm

SEMA 2007: ENDLESS APPLICATION POTENTIAL!

Aftermarket Scissor Doors for Audi TT Pass Crash Test

Good news for fans of Mattig's aftermarket tweak-out of the Audi TT roadster, which includes the installation of LSD (that's Lamborghini- style) doors.
