Welcome back to our monthly segment that highlights the most unique, interesting, and questionable cars for sale on the internet today. And boy howdy are we kicking things off with a doozy. I like beer as much as the next guy but I’m not sure I like it enough to want to drive a Corona car. Looks like this bottle-shaped car started life as an old VW Beetle floor pan or a failed Meyers Manx kit. And now it looks like a beer bottle. So there’s that. There’s only one picture in the ad and I can’t decide if I actually want to see more of this thing or not. Either way, I’m sure you’d be the only one to turn up at a car show in something like this.

The middle of April is always a great time for the Long Beach Grand Prix. It’s a nearly week-long event centered around a street course in Long Beach, CA that plays host to drifting, stadium trucks, and world-class sportscar and prototype racing. However, the hot new thing at this year’s Long Beach Grand Prix wasn’t even new. Instead, everyone was excited to see some vintage IMSA GTO cars rip around the narrow street circuit. Stuff like Nissan 300ZXs, C4 Corvettes, Fox Body Mustangs, Merkur XR4Tis, and so much more ’80s and ’90s nostalgia raced wheel-to-wheel in front of fans of all ages. Call me a cynic but I’d almost rather watch these cars race than the latest and greatest IMSA cars. It just looks like so much more fun! To see more photos from the vintage race in Long Beach, head over to Speedhunters. […]

Who doesn’t love a good build thread? We do, so we’ve put together all the pieces that make our new iRacing Simulator a hit!

This will be used at our upcoming events, and be able to be mobile to go to our real racing events, and much more. So check out our build thread to see what we bought for parts, and what’s to come in the future! […]

If you’re going to own one of the most beautiful Italian cars ever made, it only makes sense that you’d keep the car in one of the most beautiful places in Italy as well. That’s just the case here with this ATL Alfa Romeo 1900 that is stored and driven in Lake Como, Italy. For those not familiar, ATL (which stands for Autotecnica del Lario) was a small Italian coachbuilder in the 1960s and ’70s and the Alfa Romeo you see here might’ve been one of their most beautiful creations. Powered by a 1.9L 4-cylinder that produced around 100 hp, this car was built to be as light and nimble as possible. Coming in at 1750 lbs thanks to its birdcage-like chassis and thin-gauge aluminum skin, the ATL-built 1900 is able to make the most of its modest power. It’s speculated that ATL built just eight examples of this car and it’s anybody’s guess how many of those survive today, but after a loving restoration in the 1980s, this particular car still gets driven regularly around the beautiful rolling hills surrounding Lake Como. For more about this gorgeous car, including more incredible photos, head over to Petrolicious. […]

Hopefully, it’s safe to say that winter is mostly behind us at this point. It’s rare to see any remaining piles of snow on the ground and the ice is out on most of the lakes at this point. In parts of Russia, however, it’s not all that hard to still find snow and ice. That’s why the designer of the Flanker-F race cars you see below, Sergey Kabargin, thought it would be a cool idea to break the tandem drifting speed record on the frozen Lake Baikal. Not only do the cars look awesome but the scenery around Lake Baikal is absolutely gorgeous as well. What better place to drive flat out than on a wide open, frozen lake with two 650+ horsepower cars sliding side by side on the ice? To get all that power down, both cars feature full sets of studded tires, with 480 studs each. This all led to the tandem drift speed record being broken at a recorded 152.8 MPH. To read more about this thrilling record and the cars that made the record possible, head on over to Speedhunters. […]

The Lincoln Continental of the 1960s was basically the perfect executive car. It looked stately with its iconic 3-box shape and the “suicide doors” made it instantly iconic. Maybe that’s why Rich Plavetich hung onto his grandfather’s Continental after all these years. After an issue with the first Continental that he purchased new, Lincoln traded him into an “executive demo”, loaded with all the bells and whistles of the time. Almost 60 years later, Rich has kept his grandfather’s Continental in tip-top shape, a rolling memorial of the man who first solidified his love of cars. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0MLAxBKUO8 […]
