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

Watch Alex Roy Find Reverse

Wednesday, Feb 05, 2014

Maybe he was super excited about the Slovakian race car directly in front of him, or maybe reverse is just exceptionally difficult to find on that 3-wheeled lawn mower Morgan. We may never know… www.classiccarclubmanhattan.com @CCCmanhattan

Praga R1 Walkaround

Tuesday, Feb 04, 2014

So much carbon fiber. So much aero. So cool. Also, I’ve been corrected: the R1 has 210hp and 220 torques. Either way, it’s pretty insane. www.classiccarclubmanhattan.com Be sure to follow @CCCmanhattan

Monticello Motor Club Brought A Slovakian Race Car To NYC

Friday, Jan 31, 2014

Praga Racing is the latest division of the Praga Manufacturing company, with a somewhat familiar past (to European automakers) of building cars, then motorcycles, then trucks, then buses, then tanks, then airplanes, and now race cars. But wait, what series does batmobile-lookin’ thing race in? Well it’s kind of a funny tale; Praga teamed up with

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.

  • 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!

The member will drive each vehicle through a short, 20-minute, enthusiastic drive through lower manhattan where each member will get a taste of the vehicles for just a smidgen of the points normally required to do so.
