Rule All Kei-Cars With This Suzuki Alto Works RS/R

The Suzuki Alto started life at the bottom of Suzuki's Kei car lineup back in 1979. By the 3rd generation (1988-1994) its 125 inch length, 54 inch width, and 54 inch height made it similar in size to a pinewood derby car, but the Alto Works version with twin cam turbo power is anything but a gravity powered slowpoke. » 2/13/15 12:00pm 2/13/15 12:00pm

Screw VTEC, I Want This Turbo AWD Nissan Bluebird SSS-R

After delighting back-road thrill-seekers and autocrossers alike, the Datsun Bluebird left the U.S. market, never to be seen again. Back in its home country, it matriculated into the all-wheel-drive rally fighter you see here, until bloat and anonymity set in, and its role in the marketplace was filled by a… » 1/23/15 12:35pm 1/23/15 12:35pm

2006-2010 Pontiac Solstice & Saturn Sky Market Update

The people wanted it. The press wanted it. The engineers wanted to make it. And in 2006, General Motors finally delivered the American-built Mazda MX-5 competitor that was so missing from its domestic line up.

Amphibious Reliant Is Boatsozoku Style At Its Best

Combining things into a bi-cultural fusion is all the rage these days. You can hardly take a drunk walk through any major downtown without stumbling into an Asian-Euro fusion restaurant featuring some ill-conceived melange of Swedish meatballs and Vietnamese soup, all served on a open pit BBQ. Why not bring this… » 1/13/15 11:55am 1/13/15 11:55am

2005-2009 Ford Mustang GT Market Update

Ever since I got to get close/personal with Ford's 2015 Mustang at the LA Auto Show a few days ago, I've had a touch of pony fever. Mustangs have been good looking since the 2005 S197 restyle, and I've craned my neck when one drives by and soaked in the retro-styled now the time to picked a used version… » 12/05/14 11:45am 12/05/14 11:45am

Larry The Cable Guy And Mad Max Modified A Lotus Elite

Oh...Florida...the Lotus Elite was a shooting brake style beast that was the world's most expensive 4-cylinder car when launched and is now traded for a sizable Beanie Baby collection. Only in Florida will you swap in a Chevy V8, slap on some nasty trim and create a haunting vision of the redneck apocalypse. » 11/18/14 2:24pm 11/18/14 2:24pm

A Lunatic Put 495 Horsepower In The Back Of This Mini

The original Austin Mini is one of those motoring icons that is instantly recognizable anywhere and is known for its compact package, large usable space and cat-like reflexes. It is one of those hip cars that makes the driver cool no matter if he is Jason Bourne, Mr Bean...or the bastard love child of Chuck… » 11/07/14 12:04pm 11/07/14 12:04pm

Snakes Alive! This Plymouth Duster Has A Snake Skin Roof!

The term barn find is tossed around for any vehicle that has been abandoned or neglected for many years and is then picked up for much cheaper than a nice version. Sometimes, barn find fever strikes buyers and suddenly folks are bidding for the right to restore some pile of parts and the discount associated with… » 11/05/14 5:32pm 11/05/14 5:32pm
