Jeremy Clarkson's 'I Quit Top Gear' Column Is From 1999, Everyone. 1999.

See that guy? That's 1999 Jeremy Clarkson, and he's very disappointed. He's disappointed because people keep reading something he wrote back then and mistaking it for news that future him is leaving Top Gear now, in 2015. That makes him a sad Clarkson, and so he has to go console himself by listening to Smash Mouth or… » 3/16/15 11:43am 3/16/15 11:43am

Two Fiat 500s - why the huge price diff?

I really like the original Fiat 500 and I'd certainly consider buying one. I've been perusing eBay lately and found two. One for $16,500 (Buy it Now) and another for $45,000 (Buy it Now). I realize the more expensive one is a "transformable", but the hard top, which has a folding sunroof, is restored perfectly, while… » 3/14/15 10:56pm 3/14/15 10:56pm

Oh, God. I bought a Dodge with 281,000 miles on it.

This is it. This is how I know I've lost my goddamned mind. I willingly handed over American currency for this: a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 with 281,000 miles on the odometer. Why? Because a new truck costs more than my mortgage. Because I've seen more half-tons with their transmissions puked out over a garage floor than I… » 3/13/15 12:34pm 3/13/15 12:34pm

1968 Fiat Dino Coupe - NPOCP?

I just watched a repeat of Wheeler Dealers on the Fiat Dino Coupe. I was really fascinated by seeing this car and wondered if I'd find any on E-Bay and sure enough I did. This one has the original 2.0 Liter DOHC V6 65° (aluminium block) Dino engine built by Fiat workers in Turin and used in this car and the Dino. So,… » 3/10/15 10:15pm 3/10/15 10:15pm

It has been a long and complicated battle when it comes to Tesla sales in the Garden State. The automaker was selling cars for several years, then all of the sudden they were shut down due a violation of franchise laws. Now New Jersey lawmakers are getting closer to a full scale approval of Tesla direct sales. » 3/10/15 9:03am 3/10/15 9:03am
