Project Overview

The LX450 has been a long project, with the biggest curve ball being the unforeseen headgasket leak that prompted an engine rebuild. I had my patience tested with wanting to see this truck through, and I'm still a bit shocked I kept with it. The main driving factor was I've always harbored some regret when I sold my E36 M3 with a bad headgasket… more

Project Overview

I have now owned the 1995 Audi S6 Avant for about two years, grabbing it in the summer of 2022 off of Martha's Vineyard. While I undoubtedly liked the car - the 5-cylinder noise pushed through the Stromung exhaust is reason enough to love it - the driving experience wasn't good enough to make it an absolute home run.

Project Overview

The Lexus LX450, after missing in action for over a year following an unplanned engine rebuild, finally made its way down to Maryland after its final stop at my faithful stereo shop back in Rhode Island (more on that later - I'm not a tech guy, but I am psyched with what got installed).

Owner: Jeff, 11/17/2023
Summary

This is a 1990 C4 Cabriolet with the 5-speed manual. What was once the most undesirable model that sold for peanuts is now a bit of an item, thanks to the depletion of 964 models courtesy of Singer. I've wanted one for a while before prices… more

Brief

I don't know if you've noticed, but car classifieds sites blow pretty big chunks. In thinking back on it, I almost have begun to wonder if the explosion in car auction sites has less to do with taking away the horsepower of the big guns like Mecum and Barrett-Jackson and more to do with simply taking advantage of how poorly built most… more

Brief

Recently, I saw a seller of a car near and dear to me - a Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Cosworth - get eviscerated by a specific member of the commenter illuminati of Bring A Trailer. The seller represented a business that allowed well-heeled “members” to borrow exotic and sports cars for a fee, and because one commenter in particular disliked the… more
