If you’re from Minnesota and have been following racing for some time, there’s a good chance you’ve seen Paul Newman wandering around the Brainerd International Raceway, or Road America in Wisconsin. Not particularly today, but most likely in the 70’s and 80’s when he ran some pretty unique and special cars that still leave us with the same feelings today. So take a look at Paul’s Datsun 280ZX that we wouldn’t mind having in our garage.   […]

Since I’ll be heading to Barrett Jackson this week, I thought I’d skip the actual auction I’m heading for and try my best at the Russo and Steele auction. While there’s still a chance I could make my way over there, I saw some insane stuff while browsing through and thought I should try and make the best of my time exploring what I can’t buy… So here’s my picks from the other auction across town.

Toyota’s robust JZ-series of engines has long been known as a great platform for reliable horsepower. While the 2JZ has reached near-mythical status as the heart of plenty of 1,000+ hp Supras, it’s older brother, the 2.5-liter 1JZ hasn’t shared the limelight for making reliable 4-figure horsepower. That’s why Minneapolis-native Don Groff bought two 1JZs and started hacking them apart with a bandsaw before welding them together at the crank to make his own twin-turbo, 5.0-liter V12. Now, most people undertaking such a laborious project would have a vehicle in mind to swap just such a crazy engine into, but not Don. He decided to build his dream engine first and later decided to fabricate his own tube-chassis in the shape of an old ’60s Formula 1 car to match. The project has taken just shy of 10 years, but according to Don, he’s right on schedule. To learn more about the build, head on over to Road & Track where they have a video of the engine firing up for the first time. […]

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to work on the best car in the world (spoiler alert: it’s the McLaren F1), there’s only one man trained to do so in the entirety of North America. His name is Kevin Hines and he calls McLaren of Philadelphia his home. Although he started off wrenching on American iron with his dad, he became a BMW tech in the ’90s before working his way up the food chain to Porsche, and finally onto McLaren where he now has the skillset to work on one of the most fanatically engineered cars on the planet. Road & Track recently had the chance to interview Kevin about what it’s like to work on such a finely tuned machine and his stories are almost as amazing as the car itself. […]
