This is the kind of stuff that dreams are made of for those that love racing through the dirt. It’s pretty amazing to see a truck on a rutted shoulder keep pace with a car traveling on a smooth highway. Better yet, you can watch all of the suspension components suck up all those huge bumps like they’re nothing. Sure, this truck, built by Psychotic Racing is just one of the many trucks they’ve built specifically to handle the Baja 1000, but watching it in action as it goes over bump after bump without a fault is mesmerizing and so much more interesting than the usual quick fly-by or helicopter shot you see from that race.

We’re just going to jump right into the deep end of this month’s weird automotive finds with this thing: a 2009 Dobbertin Hydrocar. Believe it or not, this amphibious vehicle is one-of-a-kind, featuring hand-formed aluminum body panels, including the retractable pontoons on the sides that raise up to function as the Hydrocar’s fenders or lower 8″ to help it float on water. Apparently, it also features 4-wheel steering that allows the driver to choose between having the rear wheels follow the fronts or to turn the opposite direction. Plus, it has gullwing doors, so… there’s that. […]

To Buy or Not to Buy: Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale

By | 2018-01-23T11:15:35+00:00 January 23rd, 2018|MHCC Trips|2 Comments

The old saying, “Heavy lies the crown” is the first term that comes to mind when thinking about my visit to Barrett-Jackson for Morrie’s Heritage. You have the power to buy sure, but making a split second decision on an expensive vintage car is a terrifying decision. When that gavel cracks down you’d better be pretty darn sure you know exactly what you’re buying, and you should keep reading below to see if we succeeded in our quest to add or new car, or left empty handed.

When I first saw photos of the Liberty Walk “Miura”, I thought/hoped it was some sort of CGI trickery. Surely, nobody would take such a rare, iconic, and valuable car and go full “hellaflush” on it. And luckily, this wild creation is based on a Ford GT40 kit car chassis with custom body panels formed around it to resemble the Miura, all done to surprisingly accurate effect. The result is a car that sits just 32.2″ tall (that’s below the top of the tire on most Jeeps) and with the over fenders and super dished wheels, it looks more like a skateboard than it does a car. While this build surely ruffled plenty of feathers when it was debuted last week, I’ve got to say that I like the idea behind it. Really though, I’m just glad no real Miuras were hurt in the making of this build. […]

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.
