Here's How Your Car Could Actually Be A Fantastic Investment

In my line of work, I’m constantly told two things by the general public: All cars are nothing but money pits, and My uncle has a ‘65 Mustang that’ll be worth 200 grand in three years, but I’ll sell it to you for $6500.

Here's The Real Lesson From Volkswagen's Dieselgate Scandal: It's Okay To Fail

If there’s one thing I feel like I’m getting more successful at, it’s failing. Which makes sense, since I get so much practice at it.

Formula One Double-Booked Le Mans Weekend With New Race In Garbage Dictatorship

Was the 2016 Formula One calendar specifically set up to spite the World Endurance Championship, or do the different FIA championships totally neglect to talk to each other? Either way, it’ll be hard to see many F1 crossover drives next year in WEC, as six of its nine races conflict with F1 dates. Ugh. Why?
