    What’s better than 216.1 inches of 5 passenger personal coupe? Why 216.1 inches of luxury pickup truck, of course. While no price is fronted in the ad for this uniquely modified Lincoln, its innate practicality as a mobile landing field for light aircraft is of immeasurable value. With only 54K on the clock, this bench-seated…

    Are you worried about your current vehicle’s ability to get you from point A to point B? Then you should really consider plunking down the lowly eight Benjamins for this former Postal Jeep. That’s because “neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these courageous couriers from the swift completion of their…

    Crosswalks are more than just places to line up for an impromptu stop light drag race, they also serve an important function in pedestrian safety, and provide instruction for the slower Boy Scouts in gaining their granny-helping-across-the-street badge. Usually, at a 4-way stop, the cross walks are a simple set of white lines with a…

    Yesterday, Name That Part was solved in minutes. Clearly, we’ve been too easy on you. Now, granted, p161911 (who I’m firmly convinced is either Borg or a Droid, with such a lovely alphanumeric name) did solve it by finding the site I used, which I personally think is blatantly cheating. In that situation, clearly, the…

    You know your brand is really taking off when you can afford to sponsor a race car. We can’t afford to sponsor a race car, so we bought one.

    745i, that’s a 4.5L V8, right? Wrong! The 745i was arguably BMW’s most egregious departure from the [Series][Engine Size] nomenclature (at least until the current “Xdrive35i” or whatever they’re doing). You see, BMW decided that the turbocharged 3.2L I-6 had comparable power output to a 4.5L naturally aspirated engine (and that most owners would never…

    Time once again to put your gray matter to work by trying to guess the identity of this car from a single, but quite revealing picture. From this shot you know two things: that it is supercharged, and it’s blue. Hey, you’re half-way there! Click through the jump to see if you were right.

    I’ve been saying for a while now that Canada has a whole hell of a lot of car nuts. Heck, one of the Canadian institutions, Canadian Tire, started out as just another tire and auto-parts shop, and it’s now a huge mega-retailer, rivalling WalMart, but without all the uber-cheap Made-In-China crap. I’m not sure if…

    We were about to post another Lieberman-tipped link to a mint-condition ’73 Dodge wagon on Hemmings. Then we saw the next post on Hemmings’ blog and our head exploded. The lead shot is awesome, but when you click through to see what’s up with that thing in the bed…

    Since it doesn’t appear anyone has yet lept into the fray and purchased those two decrepit beautiful Corvairs I posted yesterday for sale on Craigslist for only $500, I figured I’d provide some additional motivation.

    Back before car blogs, before Al Gore invented the Internet in fact, the primary source of car information was in print. And where you find automotive articles, you’ll also find auto ads. Auto makers still splash their wares across the pages of Road & Track, Car and Driver and the ilk – despite the move…
