I can't tell if this is a really boring parody; or an actual terrible movie. I'm leaning towards parody.

It's just so Gumball-Seventies I couldn't resist.
With fat fenders and big tires, a König Ferrari 308 GTB conversion gives it the attitude it never had

Damn it, Alpina. Don't make me like the Gran not-a-Coupe.
ALPINA's new 2016 B6 xDrive Gran Coupe takes the dowdy 6-series Gran Coupe and makes it a 600hp monster

Fun facts: The Ferrari 488 GTB has a power-to-weight ratio essentially identical to the Enzo and is the same length and weight as a Civic Si. So, fast, then.

This is the greatest paint scheme on a car ever. 
The BMW M1 supercar was amazing, so tuners AHG made it even better.

Guess which one isn't available with three pedals?
For $30,000, you can have your pick of sweet RWD sports coupes from America, Japan or Germany

I should rather like to drive this.
Ford's 2016 Ford Focus RS will be a segment-leading hot hatch aiming to beat the Subaru WRX at its own game.

This is the greatest sweatpants-related song I've ever heard.

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.

Contact me on Google Voice at 786 APE RIOT.

As the only game in town, Enterprise could easily have sunk to the level of, say, the local Price Chopper and employ only the most surly and inefficient bottom feeders they could find. Instead, they are uniformly polite, friendly and efficient, despite being flat-out busy much of the time. My only possible complaint is their location seems inadequate for the business they do--while it's undoubtedly a central, high traffic area, there often isn't room for either the people or cars they handle. Regardless, they are always a pleasure to work with, accommodating of schedule changes (and on the lookout for my interests with good deals) and a genuine pleasure to work with. I'm grateful for them every time.

Paulson is the sort of old time, friendly local sawmill that's extinct in most places. For service and prices, it's truly like stepping back in time in the best possible way. Every local for probably 20 or 30 miles around goes there, which says everything you need to know.

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

I just returned from one of the most frustrating car buying experiences of my life at Ernie's. This morning I called down to make sure a car was on the lot before starting the 70-minute round trip; when I arrived, the incredibly surly and unhelpful salesman told us "one of the bosses" had the car, and he had no idea when it would be there. I can't imagine a car salesman less interested in selling a car. I think my wife would have smacked him if we hadn't gotten the hell out of there.

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