That Time I Met Dario Franchitti And Didn’t Even Realize

Wednesday, Mar 26, 2014

We hosted a short press event yesterday morning at the Classic Car Club Manhattan. The good folks at GM brought along the 2014 Indy 500 Pace Car; a brand new Camaro Z28, y’know, the one that brakes so hard the tires lose traction on the wheels. Oh ya, and they brought Dario Franchitti too. Having a single track

Yes, You Do Want To Drive The 2014 Stingray

Tuesday, Mar 11, 2014

Like you need a reminder… (psh) Anyone who says otherwise is just plain lying. Something weird has been happening lately. Every car I drive has been affecting me. I never considered myself a “Corvette-guy” but this new Stinging Ray has got me. Got me good. And it’s not just the ‘Vette; I’ve also been driving a

7-Speeds Of Manual Goodness, Then What?

Saturday, Mar 01, 2014

We talk often about the “death of the manual”, but is it really dead? Or is it just momentarily dormant as the 6-speed slowly peters out and the 7-speed ramps up? I wish. More than likely, these +1 gear’d anomalies will remain just that; anomalies. Beautiful looking, amazing handling, anomalies. On the way out to collect

Triple-C Ice Racing Episodes 1 & 2

Friday, Feb 14, 2014

What do you say when your co-workers buy a $2,500 Subaru specifically for ice racing and ask you to come along? Well in my case; I said let me grab my camera. Over the last few years I’ve taken a lot of inspiration watching the /DRIVE guys create some of the most interesting and well told automotive

A Boxster You Could Love

Tuesday, Feb 11, 2014

We just took possession of this DonQ liveried Porsche Boxster racer, which I have affectionately dubbed “Yellow Submarine”. Upon first inspection this Boxster has properly shed all hair-dresser-lady-car connotations. Stripped interior, full roll-cage, exposed shifter, race wheel and seat, fire suppression, the works. This will not be a CCC fleet car, but we are planning to get

Super Sedan Selection

Friday, Feb 07, 2014

Two German, one Japanese. One V8, one V10, and one burbling boxer four. Two 4wd, one RWD. All with four doors. One is known as the gravel/snow/rally benchmark. One, a Lambo engined execu-rocket. And the last, a bit of a European muscle car that makes Madonna pee her pants. They’re all great for different reasons, but which is

Subaru Conundrum: Beater or New-New?

Tuesday, Jan 28, 2014

This is a tough one. Two cars from a company known for building durable all-weather machines. Both more than capable of thrashing a back country trail at speed, the question is, which one would you dirty up? The Cars: The 2.5rs is a $2,500 craigslist find, bought specifically for ice racing. It’s got a bit
