    I’ve built a few things in Lego here and there. The last one, which sits on a shelf in my garage, is the Technic Land Rover Defender. That one has working suspension, four high and low, steering, a working engine, and much more. It would be a blast to have a spot to test out […]

    The Hoonigan Media Machine is back at it, and this time HHIC Ken Block is back at the wheel. While they made it sound like the Gymkhana franchise was being handed over to Travis Pastrana, it’s clear that there is still some petrol left in Block’s tank. Only this time, there is only electricity, as […]

    Here’s something new I learned this morning… the electric power steering pump out of certain Volvo models is the perfect addition to a project car. Specifically, a project car in need of a power steering solution. That’s because it’s a self-contained unit you can mount anywhere, then power up, run your hoses, and voila, you […]

    The mobile site, apparently, looked like a Times Square dumping ground. I apologize about that. Typically, I view the site on a desktop and it’s nowhere near as bad as on mobile. So I’m turning a handful of ads off in an effort to clean it all up. It should appear as such in an […]

    I knew I’d like the Ford Bronco Raptor, but I didn’t know that I’d love it. But I do because it’s amazing how well it handles off and on-road. You have good power, tons of travel, the best tires, and plenty of drive modes to handle any situation ahead of you. The Ford Bronco Raptor […]

    There are differences between the years. Sellers have a range of quality levels on offer. And a whole lot of cars clearly came packing six-cylinder power backed up by an automatic gearbox. Yes, I’m pretend-shopping old Ford Mustangs, and I have been for some time now. Finally, it seems like the market may be prepping […]

    Robbie Coltrane was perhaps best known for bringing Hagrid to the big screen for millions of children around the world, including myself. But it wasn’t until after his passing last Friday that I became aware of his love of all things mechanical. And I especially wasn’t aware of a TV series he hosted in 1997 […]

    You know it’s going to cause people to have very different opinions when the subject matter involves jack stands and Harbor Freight. But the affordable tool supplier has three fresh options in its lineup, and I have to say they all look pretty great. The new stands are part of the Daytona line of gear, […]

    The Velocity Invitational took place last weekend, and the event is quickly living up to its concept as America’s Goodwood. Case in point is McLaren trotting out the 1990 MP4/5B Formula 1 race car, which Ayrton Senna drove to the world championship that season. And now it’s back roaring on the track. This time, we […]
