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

Running the hottest fleet this side of Detroit (the other side, too) isn’t always easy, but easy isn’t always fun. The world famous Classic Car Club Manhattan is on the hunt for a new, whip smart mechanic that can tick a few boxes. Those boxes being: 1. Mechanically multi lingual - Si capisce l’italiano?

Legend Of The Mid-Engined Aston Martin

Wednesday, Mar 05, 2014

Very rarely do I get into legit argument about cars with someone. I usually try to avoid arguments in general, especially when my conversation partner is SO sure. Like SO, SO, 100% SURE!! Which is why I was quick to revert into “agree-mode” when a truck driver told me he once hauled a mid-engined Aston Martin. I was asked

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

The McLaren P1 Is A Gorgeous Thing

Thursday, Feb 27, 2014

Seeing the McLaren P1 for the first time is like seeing a naked breast for the first time. I really wanted to touch it, but knew I probably shouldn’t. The good folks at Miller Motorcars opened their large glass doors to the public to show off the truly mind-boggling McLaren P1. Mind-boggling because it’s not just another high-horsepower,

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.

  • Chinese Grand Prix Viewing @ CCC

    April 20, 2014
    Starts: 12:30 pm
    Ends: April 20, 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!
