    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 […]

    This is my garage. These are my cars- Thing One and Thing Two. Actually, that’s mean. I’d like you to meet my 1961 Austin Healey Sprite and 1975 Jensen Healey, or as the missus calls them, the money pits. Old cars are like black holes- they ravenously suck up all available resources, allowing nothing to […]

    If  this Craigslister had spent half the time they did dropping <br> tags in their ad on their pictures, we wouldn’t have to call them out for public mockery. Why my senior prom? Seemed promising at the outlook, but after what seemed like forever of waiting…a total letdown.

    Yesterday, Graverobber took over the reigns for Name That Part, and brought us a lever-arm shock absorber from a ’72 MG. That was nice of him. Congratulations to Armand4 for nailing it, and identifying the part so quickly and efficiently. On the other hand, Mr. Robber also brought us a heavily-oiled Sylvester Stallone in a […]

    Press play. Just do it. You’ll be treated to what looks like a mash-up of Transformers and Spiderman, but good. And in Russian, with a Volga. Then you’ll want to go here. A tip of the Stoli to Jonny L…no that’s too obvious. We’ll call him J. Lieberman over at Automoblog.

    We’re all familiar with the typical Craigslist seller whose writing makes us weep for English as a language and whose photography leaves you wondering if they went to extra trouble to add blur and decrease the resolution of the two and a half pathetic pictures which usually contain a pitbull. Sorry ’bout that. Where was […]

    The craziest girl driver ever – Watch more Funny Videos Truth be told, there is no statistical evidence that women are less competent drivers than men. They are, however, genetically predisposed to have driving mishaps while in front of surveillance cameras. This woman goes from bad to worse, to seized motor in under a minute.

    We realize this isn’t Juniverse, but these were tough to pass up. After seeing the XJ-S Junior, reader Dr. Dangerously tipped us to The Harrington Group, an outfit that sells an assortment of stunning 1/2 scale electric replicas including a Porsche 356, Mercedes-Benz 300SL, E-Type, Flatfender Jeep and a Bugatti Type 35(ish) clone.

    VW Vortex member Thecleaner likes his VWs watercooled, but still pines for the days when the aircooled cars had their grills in the back. Having come across a clapped-out Cabriolet that was missing its top, he decided to set things right. He initially wanted to convert the car into a roadster but instead added a […]
