In my final year of high school, we were required to undertake a final senior project that would be year-long and had to focus on a peronsal goal and interest. Some of my classmates chose to skydive, write poetry, learn guitar...I chose to do something I always wanted to do–restore a car.

This Mercedes is a Collectable Cube

This boxy Benz looks as if it can traverse any terrain in the world, but it has only covered 34,500 miles. That's due to its 14-year residence in a private vehicle collection. It comes as no surprise that its current owner states, "The bodywork on this G-Wagen is in excellent condition..."

Owning a BMW Leads to Owning More BMWs

Putting the M5 in for a service actually led me to the 318i. The mechanic I found was a senior member of the BMW Club in Brisbane and chatting with him one day he mentioned that he had to get rid of one of his cars because he'd bought a new X5. I didn't think much about it but when I decided to buy a daily-driver to commute to work, I called him, saw the car that weekend and bought it on site.

Homebuilt, Rally-Inspired Super Beetle Fits Just Right

The thing I love most about my Super Beetle, is that it fits me. I don’t just mean in a physical sense, but in a philosophical sense as well. On the physical side, I’ve built and modified everything to be just the way I want it. It feels right, like getting into your favourite pair of jeans, and I can’t think of anything else I’d rather climb into on a daily basis.

The BMW 325iX Is The Coolest E30 Of Them All

That’s right, folks: long before the “xi” models of the E46 3-Series generation, or the “xDrive” E90 cars, or the current models, which are called something like “xDrive28isDrive,” BMW made an all-wheel drive E30 3-Series. They didn’t make many of them, and they all went to up-and-coming yuppies in Colorado.

Ten Classic Cars You Need to Import Now!

Ten Classic Cars You Need to Import Now!

Lately, we've been feeling left out. There are many wonderful cars that much of the world has gotten to enjoy and yet for one reason or another were never shipped to the USA. We can pretty much import any car we want so long as it's more than twenty-five years old. This is how we'd blow our hard-earned cash...

Why the Porsche 914 2.0 is Collectable

Why the Porsche 914 2.0 is Collectable

By whatever fractious means it came to exist, the Porsche 914 represented something very special when it graced American showrooms in 1969. The Detroit horsepower wars were going great guns when this unusual and beautiful Targa-roofed, mid-engined sports car arrived from Germany. It was like a tiny Ferrari or Lamborghini, approximately the kind of thing Lotus had pursued with the Europa, exotic and a bit delicate-looking.

Taking off again was agonizingly slow as the 3.3-liter engine struggled to respond to my planted right foot, that was until the turbo spooled up and the forced induction shoved me squarely into the leather sport seat, by which time the car was barreling into a corner, boost and all...

The Porsche Museum's Mind-blowing Le Mans Exhibition

This year was special to Porsche because they finally returned to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Obviously, it will take some time for Porsche to recover their form after such a long absence. Nevertheless, a special exhibition called ’24 Hours for Eternity’, which pays homage to the famous race and displays Porsche’s racing heritage to public, is mind-blowing.

The goal was to keep the car simple and period correct, but also to add some touches that don't make it come off as another semi-restoration. Under the hood, the 2002 remains mostly stock except for a 32/38 Weber carburetor and E21 radiator. With all the influences throughout my life, car-wise, I've tried very hard to avoid from what everyone else does.
