      For a used junkyard motor maybe. Definitely not for a new long-block.

      It's a big deal because many of these AMG motors use components that are not field serviceable by your average DIYer or even by many specialty independent repair shops.

      It can definitely be done for cheap if you're able to source good quality used parts in serviceable condition. But there's also a false economy that can erase any up front cost savings. I was never...

      Ah, the siren call of the cheap E24. Nothing is more expensive to put right than a cheap, neglected BMW with 30+ years of wear and tear to fix. I really like them, but I've moved on and have more...

      Cool, rare cars. Poor man's Audi RS4 Avant. High ownership costs as with all evos. God help you if you ever get into a fender bender as finding replacement parts in the USA will be painfully...

      Probably 911 or Boxster depending on my exact finances at the time. I used to hate 911 Cabriolets because Porsche (necessarily) removed the sleek arcing roof line of the 911, which is one of the most...

      It's all the same pool of money regardless of whether specific tax revenue streams have been earmarked for specific purposes or not. Look at the total tax revenue, not the individual pots of money....

      That's US$45. Not bad considering my GTI routinely cost me anywhere from $30-$45/fill depending on fuel prices. The extra taxes you pay on your gasoline help contribute to the many great benefits you...

      You have many choices. Installing a bumper guard is a poor choice IMO.

      Congrats! GT Silver is gorgeous on your car, especially with the 19" Carrera Classic wheels in silver. Many silver cars are borderline boring, but it's such a timeless color on any German car, let...

      Th only people who can't get a title are criminals, liars, and/or lazy nincompoops. Yes there are many ways to get titles, but this certainly raises many red flags. And yes, it's a $5k parts car,...

      Perhaps most interesting about this particular car is that the bodywork was apparently manufactured by Rolls-Royce themselves in the old Indian Motorcycle factory in Springfield, MA, as opposed to...

      They really are in the sweet spot right now in terms of looks, performance (able to keep up with modern traffic), relative mechanical simplicity, etc. I wouldn't say an 1960s Italian anything is easy...

      Well, if recent history is any indication, it depends on who you are and what car. Many parts for modern classics like the Testarossa, F355 and 550 Maranello are no longer available from Ferrari. The...
