      Great videos. I'd take my W12 to you if I had one.

      It's difficult enough to assess a car's collision history, but determining which technician worked on a car or if it was ever taken to a non-VW...

      A long search is what happens when your expectations exceed your budget. If you wait long enough, the depreciation fairy will catch up with your wallet and then you'll be able to buy the car you want...

      Porsche 930 dually anyone?

      Cars with forced induction are more robust and reliable if anything.

      I recommend NOT asking people on a Porsche-focused forum like Pelican Parts. Instead, ask a HUGE community of people that don't own those cars, but have funny little comments about the cars or...

      So, two observations.

      I know everyone thinks that the owners of these 930's are generally uber wealthy snobs, when in fact they're usually uber wealthy tightwads, but I feel like it's impossible...

      Just a few projects this weekend. Suddenly the car feels out of place, but I can't put my finger on it.

      Isn't this the episode where Baker arrives on the scene first but gets hit by a car?

      It's essentially a bulletproof car. If it runs, then it works. The only "problem" with a higher mileage experience is that at some point, a wide array of parts are nearing the magical "end of life" -...

      F yeah I would. I'd rock that thing until it burned to the ground.




      A 2JZ or LSx would slip in there nicely. At the end of the day, an E34 M5 with a blown S38 is still a hand-built E34.

      The Mazda CX-5 is as fast around a track as the Miata. A lot of great work on that chassis. The CX9 is brilliant, but it's a bit large.

      Looks great. Can I add another vote to the "market them as auto enthusiast bars of soap"?

      I think you spend too much time saying that the car is fine and drivable but it shouldn't be trusted to be driven any distance, but it could be driven any distance, just not right now, but the car is...

      DO I smell an independent submission to Petrolicious?!




      I think that's a valid statement. I'd add that not everyone needs to get it, thank God. What struck me when I first saw 16Volt's car is...

      It looks like a period correct, legit IMSA body kit. I used to work at a Mazda dealer and the owner had one of these for a short minute. I think it has the best chance of looking good lately due to...

      Solution: never come to a complete stop. My money was on drivetrain mounts, but a gear oil flush works too.

      Also, I'm not comfortable with how close you stop behind other cars. If we could get...

      What exactly do you expect when you purchase a ~200K miles, 15yr old car for $1700? But, yes, I'm sure there are plenty of Ford Taurus or Chrysler Concorde that would be a completely different story...

      I can tell exactly what the interior of that car smells like.

      They were pretty uncommon cars back in the day. Even a hardtop GT-S coupe or sedan weren't very common.

      I'm not sure what you're...
