What a shame for the track, his family, and the historic racing community. The group that shows up to Lime Rock are all people deeply involved in the sport, and great, friendly people whom I've met at various events around the country. They're a group thoroughly devoted to the sport and the preservation of automotive… » 8/30/14 8:05pm Saturday 8:05pm

I tried asking this in another thread, on Oppo, and via email, but I'll try again here: if I submit a film, can I continue to broadcast and profit of off said film in my name? I'm hoping to enter some Hitting Redline stuff just to see, but obviously it would be preferable if I could continue to use that material for… » 8/27/14 1:46pm 8/27/14 1:46pm

Asking this here because it got lost the first time. If we submit something to the Jalop Film Fest, so we maintain the rights to broadcast, profit from, and otherwise use that piece? I was looking at the contest rules, and it appears that the answer is "yes," but for my own entries (I intend to enter a Hitting Redline… » 8/26/14 10:20pm 8/26/14 10:20pm

Its Own Set of Rules: The Morgan 3 Wheeler Experience [VIDEO]

It's safe to say that the Morgan 3 Wheeler has had one of the largest lust-to-power ratios of any vehicle on the road in the last few years. It's also a vehicle I've sought to film since I first saw this very car near my town two years ago. And when I finally got the opportunity to experience the magic of this car and… » 8/25/14 8:57am 8/25/14 8:57am

...I didn't realize city-dwellers honestly have no idea how water access works. The world wouldn't need so many reservoirs, pump systems, and water networks if people didn't live stacked on top of one another hundreds of thousands to the square mile. Wells are how water is acquired in the rest of civilization. There's… » 8/23/14 11:32pm 8/23/14 11:32pm

I have a Lexus that's a third car, and the only one with air conditioning (I didn't know what "cold AC" meant until I got this car). Oddly, my Lexus (a GS300) is quite possibly the only midsize luxury sedan that is actually reliable, and I stumbled upon it totally by chance. » 8/16/14 12:44am 8/16/14 12:44am

Depends what level of driving you want to do with it. The modified 302 route that people are suggesting is an idea that originates in the drag racing world, where there exists ample time to fine-tune and assess a motor before each run. That said, there's probably a balance in there somewhere. I'm curious what you… » 8/11/14 7:12pm 8/11/14 7:12pm

It is a platform-sharing system when you consider that up to four or more models (coupes, convertibles, sedans, wagons, etc.) are based off that chassis with the same engine options (or more, as is the current case), and also convenient for generations (the same as C1/2/3/4/5/6/7 Corvettes, or that Jeep Wrangler thing… » 8/11/14 1:55pm 8/11/14 1:55pm

Ugh. I just dealt with this bullshit trying to get a 1985 BMW from VT (Vermont doesn't issue titles to anything over 15 years old) registered to its buyer in Jersey. Jersey titles EVERYTHING and Vermont won't even consider building a title for an older vehicle, and in order to get it registered down there, I had to… » 8/08/14 10:46pm 8/08/14 10:46pm
