"So what's the fastest car you've been in?" I've heard this question a hundred times. Typically, it's followed by a list of cars like the Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari FXX, Ruf Porsche, SLR McLaren, etc. I've had the...

The persistence of memory
The persistence of memory Posted September 11 2007 03:43 PM by EC_Staff

So I'm filling up at the local Texaco station and watching the end of Army of Darkness on the Q7's video monitor. The hero has just slain his evil doppelganger and is about to kiss the girl. "Hail to the king, baby." Ah,...

European Cars versus Japanese Cars
European Cars versus Japanese Cars Posted May 25 2007 12:42 PM by OfTheSun

In an ideal world--at least my ideal world--everyone would need to prove that they were responsible drivers before purchasing a car. Not a day goes by in my 40-mile commute to work that I don't see a car being...

I Want Some Shakes, Rattles and Squeeks Back Posted January 19 2007 01:15 PM by MFEBBO

One of the most enjoyable cars I have ever owned has also been one of the cheapest and slowest. It was a 1992 Volkswagen GTI 8v that was just an amazing car. It had maybe 125hp on a good day with the mods I had done. ...

British Car Enthusiast Ramblings
It's Only Cold When I Stop Posted January 17 2007 11:35 AM by MFEBBO
