Four-cylinder Engine Rebuild: Time Lapse

11 months, 3000 pictures and a lot of coffee. That's what the creator of this video said it took to perform a rebuild on this engine he purchased on Ebay. I know some of my friends will recognize this motor immediately. Others will have to see a bit of the car shown later in the video to identify it. Either […]

Austin-Healey at The Mitty 2012

James Thurber’s short story “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” first published in The New Yorker in 1939, describes the main character as a regular guy with a rather mundane life.

Nissan GT-R at the Monticello Motor Club

Golf schmolf. That’s this car junkie’s humble opinion of the value of a country club membership. But joining an exclusive motorsports facility like Monticello Motor Club, which is just 90 miles from Manhattan and includes 4.1 miles of smooth tarmac? That’s more my speed.

Automaker Spotlight: Chevrolet

Established in 1911, Chevrolet has one of the richest histories in the automobile business. That’s given the company plenty of time to continuously improve its products for better performance, economy and reliability. Still, vintage Chevys stir passion among enthusiasts.
