Oddities, Eccentricities, and Aberrations – May 2017 Edition

By | 2017-05-31T13:01:32+00:00 May 31st, 2017|Cars We'd Like to Own|0 Comments

We’ve got the need for speed this month, so we’re doing a special Race Car edition of the Oddities roundup and right off the bat we’ve got something pretty special: the only Panoz DeltaWing ever made available for public sale. As far as weird race cars go, this one is right up there as one of the weirdest of weird, but how cool would you look showing up to the next track day in a DeltaWing?! It’s chassis #001 and has a substantial racing history in the P1 class of ALMS and P2 class of IMSA. The DeltaWing, along with spares and even track support, can be all yours for just $375,000 directly from DeltaWing Racing. […]

Oddities, Eccentricities, and Aberrations – April 2017 Edition

We searched the deepest, darkest bowels of online car listings and found plenty of weird stuff for this edition of “Oddities”. First up, we found a bit of a Franken-Ferrari. At first glance, this might look like your run-of-the-mill 308 GTS, but I assure you, my good sir, that it is not. That’s because, at some point, someone came up with the brilliant, mad-scientist idea of cramming the 4.8-liter V12 out of a Ferrari 400i into the back of this 308, where the 3.0-liter V8 normally resides. The result is frightening intriguing. It’s sure to be fast, but that’s a pretty hefty lump of an engine to shoehorn behind the cockpit which makes us suspect that the handling might be slightly perilous. Either way, it’s going to auction in the UK next month where it’s expected to fetch a healthy premium over a normal 308. […]

Say “hello” to Zombee1, which was created for a show called “Zombie Clean Up”, which apparently is a real thing. It’s a ’99 Chevrolet C2500 work truck that has been built up with custom armor, front and rear winches, and three mini gattling guns that may or may not work. While it’s certainly a well-executed build if zombies were a real threat, you’re bound to get plenty of looks from the walking dead and non-dead alike when driving around in this thing. Although it’s not quite as cool or practical as Ecto-1 from “The Ghostbusters”, Zombee1 would still make a great work truck for a road-kill cleanup crew if you swapped out the guns for some shovels, so that’s something… […]

The Amelia Island Auction Picks | 10-11 March 2017

By | 2017-04-19T13:43:30+00:00 March 6th, 2017|Cars We'd Like to Own|0 Comments

While we all already know about the Mazda 767B that will be going to auction at Amelia Island, we wanted to daydream for a while and pick out a few more cars heading to auction. Now there will be a few auctions over the weekend and we couldn’t help but dig in and see what tickles our imaginary fancy. Between Bonham’s, Gooding & Co., and RM Sotheby’s we thought we could find a vehicle, or two worth holding up the paddle on. We’ll keep the same format as last time: one affordable, one for the road, and one for the track. Ready, Set, Go! […]

Finally, we can get excited about the Catalina wine mixer, because we can buy this Pontiac Catalina limo and roll in style. Just look at it in all its majesty – 4 extra doors, truck mirrors, full-length roof rack. Plus, it’s gold. On gold. So. Much. Gold. It’s everything you need, all wrapped up into a single car, if everything you need is an 8-door station wagon. […]

Here’s Everything We Missed At The 2017 North American International Auto Show

By | 2017-01-10T12:31:53+00:00 January 10th, 2017|Cars We'd Like to Own|0 Comments

So… We skipped the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this year. It’s a fun show but it turns Detroit into a complete circus. Hotels are few and far between, flights are expensive, and the weather sucks. So we just said “screw it” and decided to road trip out to Chicago next month for the next big auto show on the calendar. Personally, I’m a little bummed we didn’t go this year. There are a lot of exciting cars that have been unveiled this week that we weren’t there to see, but hey, hindsight is 20/20, right? So instead of showing you our coverage of the show, we’re going to be borrowing stories from all of our favorite automotive news sites and giving you our thoughts on the coolest unveilings in Motor City this year.

Oddities, Eccentricities, and Aberrations – December 2016 Edition

By | 2016-12-21T10:15:13+00:00 December 20th, 2016|Cars We'd Like to Own|0 Comments

Since most of the upper midwest has been ravaged by various winter storms over the past few weeks, we figured this edition of Oddities, Eccentricities, and Aberrations would be as good as any to focus on the oddball vehicles that will get us through anything mother nature can throw our way. […]
