We all love obscure cars. And we want to celebrate them. But because they are obscure, it is nearly impossible to find merchandise with those cars on them. Fortunately, I found a talented artist who will, for a reasonable fee, draw your car, and you can buy mugs and t-shirts (and more) with the drawing […]
With our bus stalling twice already the night before in the Ecuadorean Central Highlands, I was on edge. Was I going to make it to the end of the Pan-American Highway? With pressing family and work obligations, I may not have another chance to complete the journey in the foreseeable future. Then, at around three […]
As some of you know, I started a trek in 2007 to ride the entire 14,741-mile Pan-American Highway by bus. Last month, I finally accomplished this goal. The final stretch was from Lima, Peru, northward, to Turbo, Colombia. The Darien Gap, a roadless stretch of jungle between Panama and Colombia, prevents the highway from running […]
As you may remember, my beloved 6MT Volvo V50 T5 was rear ended and declared a total loss in April. Some enterprising individual bought the wreck at an auction, proceeded to fix/replace the rear hatch, and flip it on Craigslist. Almost three months later, it still sits, stale. Make the jump to see why.
The search is over. No more rental cars. No more reading the bus schedule. No more blurry eyes from staring at Craigslist, Buggy Bank, Autotrader, and Bring A Trailer. The search is over. Make the jump to see my new ride.
Lady and gentlemen, the Citroen Conservatoire is one of those places where you say to yourself, after the visit– If I die now, I have no regrets and I’ve lived a full life. The collection is that extraordinary. And here’s the secret– It’s not a private collection that is next to impossible to see. Just […]
The wrecked Volvo is going to be replaced by some kind of Saab, probably. Last weekend, I checked out four. And I need your help.
That, lady and gentlemen, is $9,199 worth of damage. A matte black Yukon with a pre-runner bar rear ended my beloved wagon. The car, 1 of just 400 FWD 6-speed manuals sold in America, is a total loss. As many of you know, it takes me a long time– typically more than a year– to […]
1 series. 10 teams. 20 drivers. 40 cars. Say what? Because the electric racers don’t have enough juice to run the entire hour-long race, Formula E drivers have to switch cars midway through. And you know what? That’s not the most absurd thing about this series. Make the jump to find out why I think […]
