Do You Find This Cimbria Irresistible?

The 1982 Cimbria has a far out design that is permissible to compromise ones principles. Thankfully, its Amore Cars built body has a look that is kinda mythical, and anything but typical. It is a craze you'd endorse, a powerful force, and you'd be obliged to conform when there's no other course. It used to look… » 3/31/15 10:46am Yesterday 10:46am

In Soviet Russia, Intern Punches Clarkson

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

Je Suis Charlie

Horrific events in Paris this week are a profound injury to a world media community already reeling from a string of tragedies over the last year. Daily Turismo (and most of oppositelock) stands somewhere between serious journalism and the scrawl of a madman with a Sharpie in a gas station men's room, but freedom… » 1/09/15 1:45pm 1/09/15 1:45pm

Renault Trike With Opel Trailer Is The Wackiest Thing On Craigslist

Rollin To The Coaldies In A '65 Galaxie TurboDiesel

The 3rd generation Ford Galaxie (1965-1968) was a behemoth of a full-sized automobile, and the sedan version crushes the scales at something like 3800 lbs dry...which isn't much more than the typical BMW 3-series these days, but back in the 1960s it was massive. » 12/16/14 1:55pm 12/16/14 1:55pm

This GM Powered BMW Z3 Is Actually A Miata

This Is Your Chance To Buy A Brand New 1980s Shelby Compact

It isn't often that you will find a factory fresh car for sale. Not a freshened car, or even a low mile example, but a car that was never registered for the street and has been stored since it left the dealer's lot...in 1987. The only catch — you've got to buy all four. » 12/11/14 12:55pm 12/11/14 12:55pm

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 design...is now the time to picked a used version… » 12/05/14 11:45am 12/05/14 11:45am

Red Neck Batman Needs The Custom Cutlass With 4-Wheel Steering

I have to be honest. When I first saw this thing, I wanted to hate it. A chopped and monster trucked Oldsmobile Cutlass with a hotwheels theme? First reaction is revulsion...tinged with denial...this cannot be real. » 11/13/14 1:57pm 11/13/14 1:57pm

These Are The 5 Best Engine Swapped Cars For Sale

Everybody loves a fast vintage car, but the best way to get into a classic car without spending a fortune is to find something slow.
