Fantasy Finds Friday: 1966 Lincoln Continental Convertible
When in Texas, you best go big…

fff lincoln continental

I’m sitting at the airport in Houston at the moment, during a layover in my trip home from the New York Auto Show. Since I have a bit of time, I figure it can’t hurt to browse the local vehicles for sale on the lists of Craig and Bays of e. Since this is Texas I’m talking about, I figured I should keep my eye out for a grand vehicle in honor of Fantasy Finds Friday.

I found the one…

It’s a 1966 Lincoln Convertible, and it’s listed on eBay for sale right here in Houston. Go big or get the hell out of this state… isn’t that the saying?

Review: Morgan 3 Wheeler
A love of driving… Distilled


Four wheels can be fun, and two wheels seem adventurous. Somewhere in the middle lies the Morgan 3 Wheeler. It’s essentially a bathtub connected to an X-Wedge S&S motor and a triumvirate of wheels. Inside the cockpit is a pair of quilted leather seats, a wooden steering wheel, a gear shift lever, and a few gauges set alongside a starter button.

It’s a simple recipe… Yet when it’s all stirred together it created one of the most entertaining vehicles on the entire planet.

Modern Art Monday: Let there be light…


Is the Acura NSX a piece of modern automotive art?

Review: 2014 Chevrolet SS
A last dash for Aussie gold

chevy ss lede

We look upon the Australian automotive offerings with jealous delight. There are coupes, wagons, and sedans that we’d love to put in our own garages. Don’t even get me started on Utes…

It’s not often that a bit of Oz awesomeness makes it Stateside though, and that’s because the idea of a rear-wheel-drive V8-powered bruiser only appeals to a limited bit of the market. We love that bit of the market, and that means we should love the 2014 Chevrolet SS. It’s a rebadged Holden Commodore VF, which means it has a 6.2-liter LS3 motor up front and the driven wheels planted out back.

Sounds like a recipe for Hooniversal success… but is it? Hop on down to find out.

Project Civic Si(gh): The kids are alright

Is that not a wonderful photo?

That is a merry band of high school students getting their hands dirty and learning how to wrench on a car. Some of them are elbow deep in my Honda Civic, because it needs a bit of work as you all know. Actually, it needs a tiny bit more than I originally thought, and you can see why after the jump.

Fantasy Finds Friday: 1971 Triumph TR6
Be McQueen, even on coffee runs

fff triumph bonneville

It’s time to delve into the two-wheeled world on Fantasy Friday. I know I don’t ride bikes, but I’d like to and this is Fantasy Friday, remember? That’s why I’m going with a 1971 Triumph TR6 that I’ve found on Sir Craig’s List. Now, I could’ve gone crazy since this is Fantasy Finds Friday, but this one caught my eye immediately.

It seems that this is the year to get thanks to some upgrades to the handling of the bike. This specific example looks rather resplendent in black, but a few British Racing Green pieces might be a nice addition in a few spots. Additionally, it appears that the seller has put the bike back together and it now just needs some fine-tuning. Hop the jump for the full ad.

eBay Giveaway: It’s the final countdown… to enter

Jeff Glucker April 10, 2014 All Things Hoon


It’s the final countdown for the eBay Motors two-wheels-or-four giveaway. You have until tomorrow to head over to the Garage section of the eBay website and enter the contest. You can do so by creating a new profile and uploading some photos, or, if you already have a profile, simply upload some new photos.

The grand prizes, which we’ve examined over the last week, are either a 2014 Cadillac CTS or a 2014 Indian Chief Classic. Both are premium examples of American motoring, but they are both very different versions of the category. The Indian Chief is a modern version of a classic icon, and it’s been updated to make sure that long hauls are just as comfortable as scoots around town. The Cadillac is also updated, but it’s been moved into the future thanks to its all-new Art & Science sheetmetal that turns the idea of a mid-size luxury sedan into something enjoyable to look at from all angles.

So if you want a shot at either, you have to head on over to the Garage and get to uploading. It’s quick and easy to do, and you could wind up with something new in your driveway.

[Disclaimer: We teamed up with eBay to bring you information on this contest, which means we're getting paid to share the message. We'd only do this with stuff we deem cool... and the chance to win a Cadillac CTS or a brand new Indian fit that bill.]
