Triple C Racing: One Season Down

Sunday, Oct 20, 2013

Team Triple C Racing is Classic Car Club Manhattan’s first racing division. The effort has been spearheaded by Adam and JJ, but it’s a true team sport. These guys have now completed their first season of SCCA SM racing, and it’s been a real journey. Throughout the season they replaced countless tires, brakes, and fluid bottles, but most importantly

Scion FR-S Frugality Report

Friday, Oct 18, 2013

So as you may have guessed, a Scion FR-S gets a few more miles out of each gallon than a Mercedes SLS AMG. But how many more miles? This will surprise you… I know I may seem like a broken record spouting about why lower horsepower, and exceptional handling are two key ingredients to motoring nirvana; but this

How To Fit In A Back Seat With A Half Cage (Why It’s A Bad Idea)

Friday, Oct 11, 2013

Now, let me preface this by emphasizing how bad of an idea it is to ride in a car with an unpadded cage without the proper safety equipment; you could be seriously injured. That said, intrepid CCC mechanic Ethan demonstrates the most gracefulest of ways (not graceful at all) to fold a human body into the half-caged

What Three Japanese Sports Cars Should You Buy Now?

Thursday, Oct 10, 2013

It started as a thought exercise: If you could buy three (and only three) iconic but relatively accessible Japanese sports cars from the 1990s and 2000s, what would they be? We figure that was at least worth yammering on about for 30 minutes or so. This week on AFTER/DRIVE, /DRIVE’s podcast-like talking-cars show, Mike and Zac

M3 Duality: Which Would You Choose?

Saturday, Sep 28, 2013

One of our members picked up the Gallardo Spyder yesterday and left his very clean, mostly stock, 80k mile E30 M3 in the garage for the weekend. I couldn’t help but line our E30 up next to it and make some comparisons. Follow CCC on TWITTER, FACEBOOK, and Instagram (@CCCmanhattan)

Driving & Talking: 1989 BMW M3

Friday, Sep 27, 2013

I’ve been driving this M3 as much as possible for roughly the last year (or as much as my bosses will let me) and I’ve finally collected my thoughts enough to talk some sense (and a lot of nonsense) about one of the greatest cars ever built. ALSO: I forgot to strap the shoulder harnesses back in
