This pair of beauties belongs to the Green brothers, both long-time BC Hot Rod Association members. One has 3,000kms on the clock, the other has 40,000kms. There’s a reason for this, and one you should pay attention to.
Right before the launch of one of Britian's most famous cars, the car's designer had one of the first production models cut in half. He did this because the car just didn't feel right. This didn't happen in some prototype stage– the production line was up and running, and the car that was bisected (longwise) was one…
British Leyland, the envy of the global automotive industry in 1971, knew it had something special with its new Marina. Two body styles!
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Fresh off the boat from England, a RHD Minor Traveller!
While the Beetle, Ambassador, Mini, and 2CV each enjoyed more than four decades of production in pretty much their original form, we mustn't overlook the other long-term survivors of the automotive world.
There wasn't much question that the Index Of Effluency trophy (which goes to the team that totally overachieves, given their questionable choice of car) would go to one of the two 1960s British cars.
Remember the Swiss neutron star of potential Hell Projects, Historischer Autofriedhof Gürbetal? All 700+ vehicles will be auctioned off next month!
If you were outraged by our neglect of your very favorite films in the 12 Greatest Car Movies post, get ready to blow your remaining head gasket! It's time for Murilee's Maddening Movie Machines!
We all know that old British cars have not been proven to be the most durable, but with today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe car, we guarantee all your problems will be Minor ones.
We can just hear the conversation that took place prior to shooting these photos:
"Look, just sit on the hood and look sexy- this thing's as good as sold, baby! We'll be able to buy something that runs every day!"
"But... the hood is all icky! And why is there smoke pouring out from under the dash?"
Doing the pinup…
The Itchy Fiberglass Hell that is the '57 Devin managed to beat out the Dodgy Deal Hell of the Hemi Bantam in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll. Of course, we all want basket-case old race car projects against which to dash our hopes and empty our bank accounts, but there's a lot to be said for cheap projects…
We've seen a few British cars in this series, including a'59 Morris Minor, a '62 Mini, a '69 MGC-GT, and a '78 Jaguar XJ-6, but it's been months since the last one. That's why I'm going with this very clean Morris 1000 convertible for today's DOTS machine. You British-car experts should feel free to put on your…
Well, we can all go ahead and change our names to Ettore now, because the 'Bugatti' triumphed over the 'MG TD' in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll by a pretty healthy margin. Perhaps the faux MG wasn't really British enough, what with its German underpinnings (and the Fauxgatti, lacking any underpinnings, was…
That saucy tomato Murilee tends to run
her his Project Car Hell so late in the day that the comments are never around to be considered for COTD status. We find that a shame since some of the best comments tend to come from the minds of people trying to pick between a Fuego and a Bitiurbo. However, we found a loophole!
It's been a while since we last took a look at the Hell Projects available outside of the United States, but Project Car Hell is something we all have in common. Yes, whether you're beating your skull against a ZAZ in Mongolia or a Simca in Monrovia, you know the agony of having this seriously cool car that you can't…
