You know what sounds awesome? Ferrari race cars. Particularly, vintage Ferrari race cars with big, carbureted V12s that shoot fireballs and don’t have any sound insulation like the Ferrari 512 BB LM in this video. While one could make a case for just listening to the sounds this beast of a race car makes as it slides its way around a wet Imola circuit, it’s even better to watch the footage from both inside and outside the cockpit as the 512 BB LM chases a wild Porsche 935 K3 around the track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwdu9f8xUqw […]

Driving in a Snow Storm – The Dummies Guide

We here at MHCC love a good driving story, but the bad driving stories are the ones that we remember the most. It was only supposed to be a 3-hour tour (cue the Gilligan theme song), but it ended up taking us just shy of 9-hours to get home on Sunday from a fishing trip. It started Friday so well, with sunny skies and no wind, then Sunday looked like a different planet. So we want to share a tale of why you don’t drive on the roads when they shut 3 major highways around you. […]

Mazda his pretty well-known for their efforts at LeMans with the mighty 787B of the early 1990s but before that, they raced the car you see above. This was Mazda’s 1982 entry and it marked their last production-car based racing entry to see the famous French race. Known as the Mazda 254i, this Group 5 racer didn’t achieve the success Mazda was hoping for, instead finishing 14th overall during its sole run at LeMans. A second 254i was campaigned as well but failed to finish the race. These cars were raced sparingly for a couple of years before they fell off the map, although the LeMans finisher, unfortunately, was totalled in a racing accident. It took 35 years for the sole surviving 254i to surface again and luckily, it’ll be receiving a full restoration and a new life. To learn more about this quirky Mazda 254i race car, head over to Japanese Nostalgic Car. […]

Check out this MONSTERBUS! Although the ad says its perfect for taking 22 of your best buds paintballing or booze cruisin’, I think it’d be ideal for transporting your buddies to and from Monster Jam. They could all hop out and go to their seats while you jump it over cars and do barrel rolls in it. What’s not to like? If you got your buddies to chip in on the $75k asking price, it almost starts to sound like a bargain… […]

MHCC in the Windy City

Being that the winter isn’t the busiest time for MHCC, I had some spare time to sneak down on a road trip to the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. Mercedes-Benz of St. Paul hooked us up with a brand new GLC (which you can read about here) and we made the trek East. I was blown away at some of the classics that had stolen the spotlight at the show! Up sitting on stages, right in the center of the booths, the vintage, and classic cars had taken the cake! Not only the classics, but some of the manufacturer’s race cars were stunning to see up close and in person. […]

Obviously, snow tires are really important things to have in Minnesota during the winter but your drivetrain can make a huge difference in how your car handles snow and ice too. The guys at Team O’Neil tethered various cars to an old Jeep in an icy parking area and goosed the throttle to show how different differential and traction control setups work when things get really slick. As you’ll see in the video, 4WD doesn’t always mean that all four wheels are getting power and sometimes, a 2WD with a limited slip differential can put the power down even better than a Jeep when conditions get tough.
