1973 VW Super Beetle – The New Kid on the Block!

By | 2017-10-09T11:13:29+00:00 October 9th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

We decided that we were missing some love in our fleet. So we went out and caught a love bug. It’s a 1973 Super Beetle Convertible that was originally delivered in Minnesota. While we do still have a bit of work left to finish before it’s completely rental ready, we’re already loving it! The VW Beetle is an iconic design and a sure fire way to enjoy an afternoon buggin’ around town. We can expect this rental ready by next week to catch the final part of our season in this baby blue Beetle convertible! […]

Lap Around the Web – Oct. 2nd

By | 2017-10-03T09:24:32+00:00 October 3rd, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

I love weird cars. Cars with a story, a unique history, or a secret life. And that’s exactly why I had to feature this Porsche 356-based “Kaiserslautern Coupe”. It’s one of those cars that can show up at a car show or event and despite the condition, it’ll draw a crowd and hundreds of questions all day because everyone is curious what it is, where it came from, and why it exists. The story about this rare car is actually even more interesting than I would’ve guessed, but not wanting to spoil the surprise, I recommend you head on over to Petrolicious to read the owner’s story about it.

Daily Driven: Life with a Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

By | 2017-09-28T11:23:01+00:00 September 28th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

A lot of people have been asking me the same questions over and over. It generally starts with “You have eyes, right?” Apparently, (and this is just what I’ve gathered) a considerable portion of the population thinks the Porsche 996 is the ugliest car ever to come out of Stuttgart. “Fried-egg headlights and a ticking time bomb IMS bearing” are touted as the norm when it comes to the 996 chassis.  Now, I’m here to set the record straight. After owning a Speed Yellow 2003 Porsche 996 C4S for almost a year, I wanted to give it a fair review. To really explain why I went out of my way to sell my perfectly functional daily driver, and use the loot to buy a warranty-less Porsche. Disclaimer – I am not crazy. Probably. I’ll just get to the good/bad of the Porsche 996… […]

Lap Around the Web – Sep 25th

By | 2017-09-25T14:14:44+00:00 September 25th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

When it comes to racing, there’s passing someone and then there’s passing someone. If you watched yesterday’s IMSA race from Laguna Seca, you might’ve seen what could likely be one of the most epic passes of the entire 2017 motorsports season. If you’ve been following the IMSA season, you’ll know that the Cadillacs have been pretty dominant this season, which is why it was so surprising that Renger Van Der Zande made a heroic pass for the lead in his #90 Ligier prototype, squeaking by one of those Cadillacs IN the Corkscrew on the second to last lap. He then hung onto that lead for the last lap of the race to take his and his team’s first victory in IMSA. Many have said that this move echoes Alex Zanardi’s epic Corkscrew pass during the 1996 CART race at the same track. But why not watch it for yourself and decide if this should qualify for “pass of the year” or not? […]

A Photo Recap of the Road America Weekend

By | 2017-07-25T10:53:39+00:00 July 25th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

This weekend was all about Camaros, Can-Am Cars, and everything else under the sun that can go fast. Whether it was 80hp Pre-War Specials, or an 800hp Can-Am car, everyone was ready for the WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman. There’s something special about waking up at 7:15am to the spin of the power tools as opposed to a regular alarm clock buzzing in your ear. Camping at the track has been something I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember! I’ve spent over 20 years heading to racetracks all over the country, and I’d have it no other way. That being said, there’s something special about showing up year after year to Road America for “The Hawk.” […]

Oddities, Eccentricities, and Aberrations – July 2017 Edition

By | 2017-07-18T14:21:22+00:00 July 18th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

It’s been a little while since we dragged up the weirdest automotive finds from the darkest corners of the internet but we’re kicking things off again with a doozy! If you like boats but don’t want to deal with that pesky truck and trailer, we’ve found the perfect solution for you! Just drive your boat! That’s right, this off-road and off-land ready vehicle can go straight from the highway to the waterway. Sure, it costs more than your average house, but as we always say “you can’t drive your house!”. This 2015 WaterCar Panther is everything a boat lover could ask for with a 3.7-liter Honda V6 and a manual transmission for proven reliability. And don’t mind the painter’s tape designating some of the buttons. Once you’ve made this Panther yours, you won’t need those labels for long… […]

Not only are these displays going to be on the fourth, but when it falls on a Tuesday like it does this year, it could be the weekend before and after! […]

The 24 Hours of Le Mans: The Quick and Dirty Recap Roundup

By | 2017-06-21T07:15:01+00:00 June 21st, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

It was bound to be an intense 24 hours of racing at Le Mans this year. Between Toyota shattering the lap record in qualifying and Porsche showing up with their new 919 LMP1 cars and their new mid-engined 911 RSR LM GTE cars, it was shaping up to be a great race. Ford sent a bevy of their GT race cars that dominated last year, while Corvette Racing showed up with a few C7.R’s, including a car being campaigned by the Taylor brothers, Ricky and Jordan, two of IMSA’s most dominant drivers this year, proving that the GT class would remain entertaining as well.
