The Sound and the Fury

Early this morning, I was perusing an article published yesterday on TopGear.com about the new ragtop version of the Mercedes AMG GT R. If you’re not familiar with the GT R, it’s the revved up version of the already-bespoke AMG GT, but this time with 557hp from the 4.0L bi-turbo V8, and some additional body [...]

It begs the question...

This week, I haven’t been thinking so much about a particular car rather than an idea about cars, and quite honestly, about industry and the things we enjoy in general. What makes a particular car a classic, and are there any cars on the market currently that we could potentially view as classics in the [...]

Little Dues Coupe

Earlier today after I dropped my son off for school, I saw what I thought was a mirage brought on by morning exhaustion and a lack of caffeine. A Duesenberg is such a rare sight that I never thought I would actually come across one in the wild, but there at the end of a [...]
