By Mike Thies

While I have always celebrated cars and motorcycles of all kinds, it is natural to have favorites.  I fell in love with Porsches on the Interstate years ago when I was passed by a 356 Speedster! This was a number of years before the tragic accident that took James Dean’s life in a…

The 20 Best Cars That Still Offer a Manual Transmission For those who like to do the shifting themselves. by Ben Stewart

The manual transmission is on the endangered species list. Every year fewer and fewer cars are offered with a clutch and a shifter. Why? Americans just don't want to be bothered with the chore of working a clutch with their left foot and shifting with their right.

Caffeine & Octane - The Biggest Vehicle Event in Georgia

C&O was started about nine years about at a Panera Bread in Marietta, Ga and has outgrown a number of locations, steadily growing over the years to a new record set at Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody, GA last Sunday at an estimated 2500 vehicles!  It is now owned by the third owner, Bruce Piefke, who clearly has a handle on how to make it better and better.  Over the years, the numbers have intimated some of the owners of the older more classic cars, yet there still is a highly respectable…

Flat Sex: Porsche 911 Reimagined by Singer (Rob Dickinson)

This article in Road and Track celebrates a man I really enjoyed meeting in Las Vegas at the SEMA convention last year. He was easy going, open and down right chatty, not like many to of the self involved elitists that seem to set up at conventions. So many company leaders seem to put paid staff out front and keep out of the way of press and the general enthusiasts and buyers. But not Rob Dickinson! He seems to enjoy getting to know people and when they gush over his "art work"…

Hot Summer Days In The South East!

I love my cars when the tops come off, but even then I run the AC when the temps go to close to 100 or more! I have memories of cooking in my old Model A's in August. Here is a video on how important AC can be for you an your car in the Summer; but what is does not tell you is that this company "Air Cool", are experts at installing AC in your collector car or hot rod, inexpensively!
