Three Words: Nova. Wagon. Gasser.

Here’s the question, Hoons: what would you do with a ’65 Nova Wagon with a straight-axle conversion and a 327 with dual Holley 450’s? Soccer practice, here we come. Found on Craigslist.

At First Sight: 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

I’ve spent the fair majority of my motoring life loathing the Corvette. Maybe that’s unfair to the car. After all, GM’s darling has nearly always represented a down-right insane performance bargain, but to me, that was always overshadowed by the cars’ owners. I don’t need to pontificate on any stereotypes here, but I just couldn’t […]

2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon

Chances are, if you grew up in the lower 48, the concept of an attractive wagon is as foreign as makizushi. While the rest of the world subsists on a steady diet of cars like the BMW M5 Touring, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate and the Audi RS6 Avant, we’ve been force fed duds like the […]

You Can't Save Them All

I have a voracious ’78 International Scout Terra. Whereas most of my projects can subsist on a regular diet of morsels from the local parts store, this truck has had me sacrifice at least three others just like it to keep it on the road. My garage is my own Little Shop of Horrors, so […]

'65 Oil-burning Heckflosse Begs for Salvation

Few Silver Arrows tug at my heart strings with such ardor as the noble Fintail. I’ll even be so bold as to say I would gladly pass up a 300 SL for my very own Heckflosse. Where as the owner of a gaudy gullwing fears every door ding and stone chip, the big sedans stare […]

Et Tu, Ferrari?

If you’ve got even half an ear to the cacophony that is the auto news world, you probably heard a disturbing piece of information from Ferrari earlier this week. No, I’m not talking about the fact that the 458 Italia will be the newest Autobot in Transformers 3 – though that’s unsettling enough in its […]
