That Cobra coupe was crazy fast.

The BMW 600 wasn't.

Hard to imagine a worse name for a movie. Whoever named this would have called The Godfather, "Some People In New York Who Are Criminals."

Was this flooding, or is that normal flow for the passage?

Good to know. Not sure if cavers should spread this widely to discourage people; or hide it in case no one ever goes into a cave again.

Spring comes to Russia, and somehow, the driving gets even worse.

I honestly think this song could chart if released as a single.

I'd rock any one of these, frankly. I had the opportunity to take the last 4Runner offroad, I mean seriously offroad here in Vermont, and it  ate through the mud and rocks, and that was just the SR5. TRD would be an outstanding family adventure vehicle.

As I recall, Saab modified (read: improved) the platform so thoroughly it no longer interchanged with the others, completely nullifying the original idea.

While it would be disastrous to own, I would have to go for the looks of the Thema.

Last fall, we took an all-electric Honda Fit drag racing. What we found might surprise you.

Story
Tagline
I am a partially hairless bipedal mammal.
Introduction
At some point I stopped with all the construction work and children's theater and hoboing around the rails and started writing about and photographing cars. I did that professionally for some time.

I still do that as the owner of Redeye Media. I consult about old car matters and write about cars. 

Such fun! You should hire me.

This is the sort of experienced, family-run smalltown garage you think disappeared about 40 years ago.

The previous reviewer forgot to add: Filthy, creepy and generally skanky. I'd feel better dumpster-diving for baby supplies than going back there.
