Lifted Sprinter

Overland Sprinters - they’re like the Leatherman Multi-Tool of 4x4s. Meaning... they’re bulky, you really don’t need it, and honestly you’ll probably just leave it at home 90% of the time.  But there’s something so...

Mechanical Advantage brings the meat

Listen, there’s something special going on with this Mechanical Advantage time-attack team. Ima tell ya.  Maybe it’s the solid team dynamic. Or maybe it's their race cars being both brilliantly practical & brilliantly engineered. It could even be the fact that...

No clutch pedal on a 944

We got the 944 running! And as spiritually uplifting as that feels lol, it just means that we now have to address every... other... problem... with this car. Starting with the Porsche 944 clutch pedal. We don't seem to have a clutch pedal. It just flops to the floor....

G35 Coupe so clean

I tend to dislike G35s... Infinity made too many of them... in unexciting colors. G35s have lost all their value, which relates to them becoming cheaply-modified. And most of the G35s I run across seems to be clapped-out, riced-out, not maintained... riding on...

CRC Power Lube : A Project Car’s best friend

I don't mind plugging a product if it really works! And CRC Power Lube works! Sometimes things seem broken & beyond repair. But really... they're just dry or seized. CRC is one of our advertisers in the magazine. And one of the perks of that, is they sent us a few...

Nissan Laurel : The best we never had

I was on the Autotrader & Cargurus websites the other night... and I was browsing around for something just like this Nissan Laurel. Well not exactly this. But a newer version of ‘something like this’. Something you could go to a dealership & finance. Problem...

Getting the 944 to start

I bought this Porsche 944 sight unseen from my buddy Elliott Grafton - owner of 944 Barn. As mentioned in the first Project 944 post, we have no real background info on this car. Elliott doesn't know when it last ran, or what ultimately took it off the street, etc....

Real A90 Supra Feels

Hey Garrett, how does the A90 Supra feel, once you start throwing mods it? People really bashed the A90 Toyota Supra heavy when they saw the collaboration with BMW. Obviously - I’ve owned my fair share of Japanese cars, and I tend to lean towards the Japanese cars due...

Project Porsche 944

So like a big idiot lol... I took my own advice from my previous rising Porsche 944 values article, and bought this Ruby Red Porsche 944. But instead of being wise & buying a clean, low mileage example of a 944, my A.D.D. kicked in... and I impulsively bought the...

The perfect S2000

The perfect S2000

The S2000 was ‘the Honda of all Hondas’ in Matt Jensen's opinion. The S2000 drove like no other, so pure-to-concept, and it's so great in so many aspects. The funny thing is, Matt Jensen couldn’t...

The time to buy a Porsche 944 is now…  If you ever wanted a Porsche 944, or if you think you may want one in the future… my gut tells me the time to start looking is now.   Why I’m an expert… I’m...

Camry TRD

The Toyota Camry TRD is a head-turner… no 2 ways about it. Here’s why: Expectation vs reality.  With the new Supra for example, our expectations (and hopes) were really high. The Supra has dream-car...

Holley Ford Fest PT1

Holley Ford Fest PT1

Coming off the Holley Ford Fest buzz… I realized I learned a little something from my fellow Ford bros this weekend. That is: Live in the moment. Truly BE where your feet are. Stop trying to live on/for social media. And… learn to rock the sh!t out of a mullet. It’s...

There ain’t much that separates Hot-rodders from Honda Boys… other than the decade. Alex McGinnis is a longbeard type of guy from Kentucky. He lives in Louisville… and he’s from Louisville. Tennessee whiskey & Kentucky bourbon. This is bootlegger country. And this...

Okeydoke IS300

A Little Background I remember when the original IS300/Altezza was first introduced in the states around 2000 or 2001. It was a big deal in the automotive world. Lexus presented alive new sport sedan that got enthusiasts’ & journalists’ blood flowing. The IS300...

Chopped & Slammed Corvair

Talk about engulfing yourself in car culture. It’s one thing to drive a cool car, and it’s next-level to build a cool car. But then there’s the entire next dimension… where you begin to morph into a human persona of the cars you own. John Ludwick is on this 3rd level....

Make Something that Makes Something... Check out this BMW E30 M3 with an M55 swap. I wish that, going into 2020, we had more people who set out to inspire… and less people who signed-up to influence. To influence is a self-serving interest… building one’s own ego...
