GT40 + Tunnel + Flames

Monday, Sep 09, 2013

Few things in this world rouse the excitement of car enthusiasts more than tunnels, GT40s, and exhaust flames. In fact, when James May talks about the “fizzing sensation” he experiences somewhere behind his penis which “explains why certain cars possess us in an inexplicable way” this is what he’s talking about.

The Friendliest Franken-BMW Around

Wednesday, Aug 28, 2013

We call this blippy little rasp-burble delight the “M2″. It rolled off the line in Munich as a 2002 tii in 1974 but a lot has changed since then; the Berlin Wall fell, the Soviet Union collapsed, and this 2002 only got better. Turbo style fenders and deck-lid trunk spoiler, grey-black paint job (as seen

Mastering 40 Inches of Fury

Saturday, Aug 24, 2013

When the name “Ferrari” is batted around, specific images instantly come to mind. For most, it’s that hue of Cora Rossa red or the thundering velocity stacks of the open wheeled racers of the 50’s. But for me, I think of something different. I think of the Ford GT40 – the car that was conceived

1974 Brumos Porsche 911 – Available September

Friday, Aug 23, 2013

A “fast car” means different things to different people. Heavily worked muscle cars from the 60’s can be fast in a quarter mile straight line but only have a 125mph top speed, demonstrating that getting there quickly is a form of fast, while a clapped-out four-wheel drive Subaru is exceptionally quick on gravely back roads.

1963 Corvette Stingray short drive

Friday, Aug 16, 2013

Here is a short, not very exciting video of a 1963 Stingray put-putting around the block in lower Manhattan. It sounds absolutely amazing, and it looks great. Needs a little bit of interior work but mechanically it’s very good. Follow CCC on TWITTER, FACEBOOK, and Instagram (@CCCmanhattan)

A Unimog in NYC? Yes. [UPDATE]

Thursday, Aug 08, 2013

One of our more adventurous members brought his newest purchase over to the garage today. It’s a 1972 Unimog, built by Mercedes Benz, and it might just be the perfect “city car”. It’s a big thing at 8.5 feet tall, it makes me feel like I’m Danny Devito standing next to Yao Ming, but even Yao Ming

Go Ahead, Wax Poetic About the E30 M3

Wednesday, Jun 26, 2013

But it doesn’t mean shit until you’ve chased down a current generation M3 on track in one. Okay to be fair, I may not be the most impartial voice on this topic (I love E30 M3s), BUT, having driven both first and current generation M3s on track I will invoke a small amount of clout. Sure, it’s
