Cars in the Wild

Oh, irony, how I love thee. While out hooning an ATV around Wisconsin cornfields with my cousin Jared, we stumbled across this fifth generation Dodge Coronet—produced between 1965 and 1970—abandoned in the woods, tire well deep in sand and dirt.

Some cars are so transcendent that you don't have to know a single thing about them but the minute you see one, you know it is something special. When a... Continue Reading →

Cars in the Wild

In my feeble brain, the general rule of thumb has always been that the more expensive and powerful a car is, the more I want it. Doesn't matter if it's new age or old school, if it makes a ton of power, looks the business, and causes my wallet to wilt in fear, that's the... Continue Reading →

Cars in the Wild

When the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 first hit the world stage back in 2007, it had about the same affect as when Nissan unleashed its new GTR—people looked at each other in stunned disbelief and said, "It can do what? And it costs how much?" The Zr1, like the GTR,  serves up a heaping platter of... Continue Reading →

Cars in the Wild

Read an interesting fact about the Mercedes-Benz CL recently - Mercedes-Benz will sell as many of these coupes in a year as Ford will sell of the F150 in a single day. In a single day. Not only is that difference so enormously vast it's actually hard to comprehend, it also speaks volumes about the... Continue Reading →

Cars in the Wild

When you think of the early 1990's, supercars may not be the first thing that pops into your brain. Here's a list, in no particular order that arrives to mind first: TrapperKeepers, Dennis Rodman, the Goosebumps books, and Salute Your Shorts.
