The Sometimes Fail-Tacular History Of Captive Import Cars In America (And Other Places)

Have you ever noticed that the term "import car" doesn't get tossed around like it used to? In these days of Toyotas from California, Volkswagens from Tennessee and Chevrolets from Canada, it's becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between a "foreign" and a "domestic" car. »10/27/12 1:00pm10/27/12 1:00pm

PCH, What The Hell IS That Thing Edition: Humber Sceptre or Simca Aronde?

Welcome to Project Car Hell »11/25/08 5:20pm11/25/08 5:20pm, where you choose your eternity by selecting the project that's the coolest... and the most hellish! We had as close to a tie as you're going to see in the Hell Garage, last time around, with in the poll. Now it's time to return to some mano-a-mano PCH Superpower action, and not only that-…

Malaise Is A French Word: 1979 Simca Talbot 1100 In Paris

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. We've seen a couple of Peugeots and a Renault in DOTSBE this week, so today we need to give equal time to a marque you rarely see on the North American street.

Project Car Hell, Debacle Edition: Matra Murena or Alpine A310?

Welcome to Project Car Hell, where you choose your eternity by selecting the project that's the coolest... and the most hellish! I really wanted to call today's matchup Édition Débâcle, but the heads of our beloved Server Hamsters tend to explode when they're forced to deal with weird furrin letters in our headlines,… »7/21/08 5:20pm7/21/08 5:20pm

Project Car Hell, 1961 Edition: Simca Aronde Or Pair-O-Lincolns?

The Cressida took the win over the Maxima in our Rear-Drive Japanese Sedan Hoonage Edition poll on Wednesday, though not by a decisive margin. Perhaps that's because the Cressida and Maxima are so similar to each other, but we're not going to have that issue today! 57Sweptside has found some hell projects that, while… »7/11/08 5:20pm7/11/08 5:20pm

PCH, Superpower Econobox Edition: Simca 1000 or Fiat 128?

The '38 Graham-Paige did a number on the '38 Mercedes-Benz in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll, similar to Marshal Zhukov's number on Berlin (and our poll would have been even more one-sided if we'd stacked a Pobeda against the Benz). Today I feel like returning to the perennial struggle between PCH Superpowers… »3/12/08 5:15pm3/12/08 5:15pm

PCH, Force de Frappe Edition: Simca 1000 GLS or Two Citroen SMs?

Well, the Jeep FC-150 obliterated the Spanish 2CV in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll, no doubt because even an Hecho en España label doesn't add enough weight on either side of the Cool/Hell scale when you're looking at a 2CV. However, we shouldn't start to thinking that France isn't a PCH superpower just… »1/31/08 5:00pm1/31/08 5:00pm
