Back in December of 2016, I was hellbent on buying a Go-Kart for christmas. Something about the idea of speeding around my neighborhood in a motor vehicle as a 12-year old gave me joy, no matter how small said vehicle was. Eventually though, my parents talked me out of it, they said that if a car suddenly goes behind…
Today marks my last week at Jaguar Land Rover so I decided to arrange a special treat for everyone in the office. Some homologation rally cars! My buddy even let me drive the Sport Quattro across town to the office!

Got to work on the GX470 last night. I promised my wife that buying a Lexus truck would mean less to go wrong than a Volvo, can’t say how much she believes me so far. BUT I also promised her that if something did go wrong, I would be able to fix it, and so far...promise kept.

The annual Canadian R’s Meeting was upon us again but with a slight twist. A new home, if you will, but with the same amazing machinery. And some new friends.

Some of you may have seen my recent purchase, a 2011 Tacoma. Last week, for Labor Day, I headed up to Uwharrie National Forest to test out my new toy.
So I bought this 91 XJ in California about 5 or 6 years ago because they’re cheap and un-rusty out there. I grew up in Michigan, and have since lived all over the country. Rust is a way of life in Mitten Land. It’s part of the car culture. People in the West simply would not understand the twisted sense of pride…

Last time on “Buying and Building a Shitcar Off Craigslist,” we had blown the 240's engine. A shattered timing guide allowed for the timing chain to play ping pong inside the engine. Naturally, we pulled the drivetrain, shoved the car into the backyard and pretended it didn’t exist whenever anyone asked about it.
September 11, 2001 – Terrorists hijack four commercial airliners and use them to attack the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. A fourth attack targeting Washington, DC is thwarted by passengers.

It’s been said, time and again, that meeting your heroes will only lead to disappointment.
This is a story about enjoying the trip for the sake of it, playing around with a fun car, and making a memorable experience.
Well, it finally happened. After eight years of talking my girlfriend’s (now wife) ear off about cars she progressed to on-track driving in her own Miata (MT). Safe to say we have come a long way from the Toyota Prius and Hyundai Elantra starter cars.
I moved 1,000 miles from Louisiana to Denver, Colorado for a new job on July 4, 2014. At the time, my only car was my 73k-mile 2002 Mazda Miata. I had planned on buying a third set of wheels for dedicated snow tires and continuing to daily drive the Miata through the winter. But as summer faded away and temperatures…
