Modern Muscle: 1963 Corvette Stingray Review

Monday, Jul 21, 2014

If Classic Car Club had a genealogy chart, branches and blossoms would be found throughout England but somewhere near the trunk, there would be a solid root system that started in Harpswell, Maine. Back in the late 50’s, Maine was predominately the home of fisherman, agriculturalists, and other hearty men and women that knew how

CCC Long-Term Project Car: Open Source Porsche 912

Some of you may have seen the ’74 BMW M2 that started as my personal project and, when I couldn’t bear to part with it, became my staff pick for the fleet at Classic Car Club Manhattan. We took delivery of our 1967 Porsche 912 just a week ago, but we’re already looking to change it. If you’ve

Endurance Karting Is The Best Karting

Unfortunately most outfits run karts with massive variability in performance with is only amplified by weight differences between drivers.

Going Analog: 1974 BMW M2 Review

Monday, May 19, 2014

I have a dirty secret. Super cars aren’t really my thing. I appreciate them and marvel at their outrageous power and digital brains, but I’m more of an analog guy myself. My theory on cars and motorcycles is if my talents can’t push them to the absolute limit, then they’re really not for me. That’s

Autocrossing A Rally Fighter Is As Awesome As It Sounds

Friday, May 09, 2014

At CCC we’re all about experiences. Whether it’s a top-down-cruising in a classic Mustang kind of experience, or a hooning-the-bejesus out of a 600+hp RWD off-road machine kind of experience. Last week Local Motors brought a brand new Rally Fighter to Lime Rock Park in order for its proud new owners to experience their impressive bit of kit on the infield

Driving & Talking: 2001 BMW M5

Sunday, Apr 27, 2014

This E39 M5 has been a part of the CCC fleet for almost a year now; it’s thirteen years old and still drives better than the most current generation sedans. The E39 M5 is the chunky peanut-butter that goes so well with some E30 M3 jelly, in my perfect M-car sandwich garage. Here I am spouting a bunch of

Up Close & Personal With The 2015 Corvette Z06

The new Corvette Stingray is a great car, which I did not expect to like as much as I do. So when GM showed up with this yellow ‘n black flared ‘n vented beast of a thing, I experience mild to strong excitement. Once off the truck, and safely inside the CCC garage I began to poke

  • Italian Grand Prix Viewing @ CCC

    September 7, 2014
    Starts: 12:30 pm
    Ends: September 7, 2014 - 3:00 pm
    Description: While it's not uncommon to find a hardcore group of members huddled in the lounge in the middle of the night watching a race live from the other side of the world, if you value your sleep, join us on the Sunday of any race day to watch the race pre-recorded on CCC's DVR. The schedule for the season is below. Unless otherwise noted, we'll be hitting play on all pre-recorded races at 12:30pm on Race Day.

    It should be a very interesting season. The 2014 regulations bring more changes to Formula One racing than any single season change in history and there is no telling what will happen. The motors have shrunk to 1.6L V6s, turbochargers are back, hybrid systems and batteries are bigger and fuel capacity is smaller. Teams are struggling with the reliability of the complex power systems and drivers are struggling to maintain grip while putting down the torque. Last year's leaders are losing pace and we're even seeing rookie teams posting formidable lap times. All that means we should see some great racing this year!
