    2. Am I the only one here that doesn't like 1960s DeSotos?

      I love classic cars... except as far back and I can remember I never liked the look of the 1960s DeSotos. Even when I was young I thought these were odd, ugly cars. I saw one the other day and I...

      A mag will automatically fail my set of standards if it does any of the following:
      1) fails to feed a round properly. ever.
      2) fails to lock into every gun it was designed for regardless of...

      I've always looked at mags this way:

      Steel > aluminum > polymer

      I only buy steel STANAG mags for my Colt 6920 and I prefer the steel Korean, Romanian, and Serbian AK mags. I'll only buy...

      Yes I have.



      I was surprised at how well the Promag held up. I had problems with the older version of the Promag polymer AK mag. The feed lips broke when the mag was left loaded for a year and...

      The Hartley/Bolt motors are basically street-legal versions of the old F1 engines. http://www.holeshot-racing.co.uk/index.php/engines/h1-v8-busa

      If I had the money/time/resources I'd put one in a...

      There's a lot of info out there on all of these cars. The best thing to do is to drive all three and see which one you like the best. One nice thing about the 986 Boxster is that it shares so many...
    9. I finally found a polymer magazine that isn't a complete piece of crap!

      Many people know my disdain for polymer magazines. I've had way too many problems with them. After testing many I found one that hasn't given me an issue in 7 years of usage which includes 5 solid...

      If I were to put a Chevy engine in a Boxster it would be a Buick 3.8 liter V6 turbo. This V8 job looks a bit much for the 986 chassis. For $45,000 i'd do something completely silly like a...

      I've had my daily driver 986 for the past 7 years. If I had the space I'd have no reservation about having a second one dedicated as a track car. The cars are tough enough to be daily drivers. On the...

      "OOPS! Your offer could not be found... "

      It looks like the classified ad was taken down.

      I've actually seen that specific Sauber C291 years ago and it was an amazing car to watch. Jochen Maas was driving it and that man could make the car dance!

      There is no comparison to the Group C...

      I'm going to bump up your earlier comment for a question: is there anything mechanically inferior about the 1999 Carrera 4? My wife and I were thinking about it and there is always the possibility of...

      Dammit. I thought that car looked pretty good until you mentioned the wheels. Now I can't stop looking at them. I agree that it just needs a normal set of Fuchs with the black centers.

      When I used to do the Tech Inspection at the PCA Races I remember an older gentleman always asking "what car is this" every time a new driver pulled up. At first I thought this was quite odd as it...

      I agree 100%

      The problem in general with modifications is that the buyer should remain skeptical of the quality of the parts as well as the quality of the work performed. Certain tuners such as...

      I did this last year and I added the metal bushing that TheDeckman makes. The shifting improvement is FAR better than the factory shifter. I'd never be able to go back to the regular Boxster shifter...

      The Chinese are copying Jeeps? I never knew the Chinese had a desire to drive 15mph under the speed limit and drive over tiny speedbumps no faster than 1mph.

      Indeed! There were other manufacturers offering some "stripped down" models as well. Note the abundance of very happy, smiling photographers and showgoers.
