It’s no secret that we love the new Honda Civic Type R around these parts, but the current Civic sure has grown big. What we need is a return to basics, with go-fast bits on a small, chuckable car. We need the Small RS Concept.
Following endurance racing on American television became a tedious chore in recent years, riddled with odd channel changes and unplanned interruptions. Fox was especially heinous about preempting their scheduled race coverage for seemingly anything else. So, the World Endurance Championship left this year for…
Of all the General Motors brands that left us too soon, Pontiac is perhaps the one I miss the most. Fortunately, For Sweden agrees with me for a change: all you really need in a car is a Pontiac.
Oh, you hopped the curb and parked your too-pristine Wrangler up on a boulder? Let this Pontiac Sunbird show you how it’s really done.
What is the key to happiness? I don’t know, but my best guess is that it would involve vintage rally cars, like the Group A Ford Escort Cosworth Ken Block plans to rally this season. I can’t get enough of this car, and now there’s footage of it blasting down stage roads. Really good footage.
Unpaid bills. Allegations of abusive treatment. Explosive text messages. Car companies leaving for a competing series. Once, Red Bull Global Rallycross seemed like a bright spot in the racing world: action-packed events popular with young fans where Subarus, Volkswagens and more flew across dirt and asphalt courses.…
It’s official: the Ford Falcon is completely dead. It’s perhaps best known here as a V8 Supercar, but the last roadgoing Falcon rolled off the line in 2016. Now the Ford Falcon FG X Supercar is joining the road car in burnout heaven, and Ford announced today that its replacement is yet another Mustang.
The best racing passes are the ones where someone just whooshes through their competition like a magical curvy lane through appeared for just them. You stare at the pass and can’t fathom how the driver made it work without hitting anything. Let’s savor this insane IndyCar pass from the Long Beach Grand Prix in all its…
An older BMW 3 Series can be driving bliss, but if you’re not a German car stan, you may not know your E30s from your E36s. Lucky for you, the Team O’Neil Rally School is here to help with this super detailed guide to the most popular 3 series generations for racing and what you need to look for when you buy and fix…
It is time once again for me to lure people over to my apartment with a selection of good cheeses and other snacks to sucker them into packing all my crap up into various vehicles and moving it to another location with more space and (gasp!) central aircon. So, I had to go cheese shopping.
The Porsche 944 is one of the greatest cars of all time, thanks to its impeccably balanced chassis that is a true joy to throw around back roads and race tracks. Yet there’s something missing from a stock 944—the ability to just run right over whatever you please. This off-road “Forsche” fixed that.
My first Puffalump is 31 today. I hope you all had a wonderful and fluffy Puffalump Day. Coco rules.
Going to a NASCAR oval race to feel a full field of 40 earth-shakingly loud V8 engines rumble your very bones is a near-religious experience if there ever was one. Unfortunately, it doesn’t translate all that well on television. This is a much better dub if there ever was one. Listen, and enjoy.
Sometimes I wonder if the Brits are better rednecks than we are. Case in point: this ramp rollover competition mega-cut. Take a sketchy narrow ramp, and fly, little beaters, fly!
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
The absolute worst part of being a motorsport fan in the United States is the constant interruption of racing action for commercial breaks. When will the beast that is capitalism be satisfied? Yet ESPN heard our complaints about how their treatment of Formula One this year, though, and will now air F1 for the rest of…
What do you do with a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant that’s no longer road-legal? Hoon it off-road, of course.
I love aircooled Volkswagens. I should—in theory—hate Paul Nelson’s car, but I can’t. It’s a Mazda Miata under a Type 3 body, and I ain’t even mad.
We’ve been featuring some of the most interesting, fun and wacky builds you people can dream up on the site as our Builds of the Week, and it’s about time we put some on video. Do you live close to New York City? We’d love to come over and check out what you’re doing—on film!
Yo dawg, I heard you like famous cars. Pimp My Ride was one of most whimsical delights to come out of 2000s-era MTV. Now for just $1,400, you can now own a piece of television history in the form of a heavily modified 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager Expresso. Small catch: it could use a solid re-pimping.
