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?

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

Wrench, Race, Wrench: Labor Day Weekend At Summit Point Raceway

Wednesday, Sep 18, 2013

With the end of the race season fast approaching seat time has become a scarce commodity. Meanwhile Triple-C Racing has been fondly reminiscing about the Summit Point, West Virgina Labor Day race weekend. Three full days of racing action, and enough seat time to melt my fast shoe to the foot-well by the end of

MP4 Spirited Drive

Wednesday, Sep 11, 2013

This car is so composed that it makes quick driving looks quite event-less. If not for the exhaust sound there would be little indication of how fast it really was moving.   Follow CCC on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram (@CCCmanhattan)
