The 90s Toyota Supra is an enthusiast icon thanks to the Fast & Furious films. But before that generation there were many Supras. The supra has always been a rear wheel drive fun car, but began as a variant of the Celica. This history brings us to this specific car, a 1982 Celica Supra. Owned […]

Its fame comes from the sheer distance it has traveled, and the fact that our friend Matt Farah bought it for the sole purpose […]

In 1976 Volkswagen launched the GTI and quickly started both a cult following and a brand new segment of performance cars we now know as “Hot-Hatches”.

As the start of our new shorter-review series called “Fast Blasts” we finally get the chance to put a Porsche 944 Turbo on camera.

We’ve reviewed both these cars before and enjoy them for their attitude and history, but never gravitated toward them for a fun road. In truth, both platforms are a poor structure for making a world-beating car. The Challenger may be a two-door coupe, but at 4,500lbs it is as big and heavy as many seven […]

The bailout of General Motors and Chrysler stained both company’s reputations but also began a renaissance in American car performance. One look at the line up of either company reveals improved interiors, better styling, and more performance rear-wheel-drive monsters than we could have ever imagined a mere five years ago.
