One of my favorite lines from any movie is when Doc Brown at the end of “Back to the Future” says “Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” before his DeLorean lifts off the ground, tucks its wheels, and takes off into the sky. The thought of flying cars always seemed like a fantasy and it technically still is, but this hovercraft DeLorean is about as close as you can get. Although it didn’t start its life as a hovercraft and it can’t be driven on the road, it’s a pretty faithful replica that can drive over just about anything else from sand to sea. Best yet, it’s for sale on eBay Motors right now if you want your very own hovering DeLorean! […]

That band happened to be Train who is still touring, and they appear to be pretty big automotive and transportation fans. So let me elaborate on this and we’ll take a look at some of Trains best album and tour cover photos! […]

Lap Around the Web – Nov. 12th, 2018

The early 1970’s were a great era for the early days of the SUV. Before people were worried about fuel economy or safety standards, there was a trio of big, burly 2-door SUVs that ruled the world: the Ford Bronco, the Chevy Blazer, and the International Scout II. While 2-door SUVs were quite popular from the 1970’s until the 1990’s, consumer’s desires more space and utility, relegating these fun, stylish trucks to the shadows. Now though, there is a resurgence of people who want 30-year-old oddball trucks and suddenly the hot rodders and customizers like Icon and The Ring Brothers are picking up old Blazers and rebuilding them to be far superior to their original forms. This 1971 example, built by the highly skilled Ring Brothers in neighboring Wisconsin, features a Chevy LS3 V8 crate engine with 430-hp on tap and absolutely gorgeous finishing throughout, making it half sculpture, half adventure vehicle. To learn more, head over to Silodrome. […]

I’m not sure if this qualifies as part of the rebirth of the “Van Life” movement but there’s something about seeing a bunch of big 20+ year old full-size vans sliding and dive bombing each other around a race track that gets my juices flowing. There’s something about these “Dajiban” that screams cool. Who’d of thunk a big metal box with expensive shocks, sticky tires, and half-assed aero (because who are you kidding by putting a wing on your van?) would be so much fun to look at? Diving deeper, this has become a bit of cultural phenomenon in Japan as used short wheelbase, rear-wheel drive vans from the 1970s through the early 1990s have been repurposed as track toys in the most ridiculous way. Inside, the plush rows of seating have been stripped out, only to be replaced by spindly racing seats and all the typical controls you’d expect in a race car. To read more about the art of racing in a van, check out Sam Smith’s wonderful article on Road & Track. […]

Road Trip Role Reversal with a 1980’s Porsche 911

By | 2018-11-05T10:04:39+00:00 November 5th, 2018|Driving Experience, Test Drives, Uncategorized|2 Comments

Imagine yourself crammed into the backseat of a 1980’s era Porsche 911 exploring the Midwest on family road trips for hours on end. Sounds comfy, right? Well, that’s how I spent many a summer when I was growing up. Mom and Dad would enjoy the relatively expansive front seats while my awkward teenage body was crammed like a sardine in the back seat. For hundreds and hundreds of miles. First world problem, right? Truth be told a Porsche 911 wasn’t the best road trip vehicle for a backseat passenger approaching his late-teens, but the reality is those road trips were a lot of fun. And thank god I was an only child because the way my mom packed there wasn’t room for anyone else but my pudgy self and her abundance of extra baggage in the back seat. Strangely, while I’ve had a lot of (back) seat time in Porsche 911s, I’ve never really spent any significant time behind the wheel. That is until we acquired the MHCC Porsche 911. The car is one of our most popular rentals and whenever it’s not booked I look for any excuse I can find to drive it. The perfect opportunity arose two weekends ago. […]
