    The Drive recently put out a video (below) talking about an act of vandalism on a California freeway. This vandalism, however, is the good sort. It’s the type that actually helped many a driver be in the right place for an upcoming exit on an otherwise very confusing stretch of freeway. Richard Ankrom, an artist…

    One of my favorite cars on the planet has awoken from a well-earned slumber. It’s Richard Petty’s 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Why is it being stirred from its sleep? Because Richard’s son Kyle is putting the car on a plane bound for England. Kyle is prepping to run the Superbird up Lord March’s driveway to rattle…

    The Technic line from LEGO is known for delivering some excellent machines. I’m talking about both in their overall design and the actual functionality of the pieces and engineering involved. The latest automotive icon to get the Technic treatment? None other than the wonder from Woking, the McLaren P1. This kit, which goes on sale…

    Disassembly is complete. Disassembly was pretty easy. The hard part is all ahead of me, and that bit of project car anxiety is creeping in at full speed. Especially since I’ve opened the box and started unfolding all of the wiring that’s about to go into the car. It’s a whole lot of colored bits…

    Over the course of the last few years, I’ve taken a deep dive into the world of mountain biking. To get my bike to some great trails, I often strap it to the back of a vehicle. I started with a spare tire-mount-based rack and graduated to a massive Thule multi-bike rack, but I’ve now…

    Audi kicked a lot of butt with its 90 Quattro GTO race car. This was an inline-5-cylinder all-wheel-drive monster machine that Hans Stuck drove the wheels off and shocked V8-powered beasts on plenty of road courses. That car should’ve easily secured a championship in 1989, but a few missed races and early teething issues prevented…

    I can feel folks getting ready to hit the keys to type my messages, telling me I’m wrong. But I don’t care because I’m here to tell you that the C8 Corvette Z06 is a supercar. It has evolved. It is more than. The idea that this is “just” a sports car is now incorrect.…

    The E39 BMW 5-Series remains one of the few from the brand that I actually still lust over. While an E39 M5 would be a dream, the 540i is also an excellent vehicle. You can get them with a proper 6-speed manual gearbox as well, and there’s one for sale just down the road. It’s…

    In February of 2014, the National Corvette Museum found itself making national news. Not in a way it would’ve hoped, unfortunately. A sinkhole opened up under the Skydome portion of the facility and took 8 Corvettes down into the Earth. You can actually watch the event unfold because there’s security camera footage of it happening.…

    Driving a modern car at speed is pretty effortless. The machine is designed to keep you comfortable and safe. If it were legal, you could cruise at triple digits on the highway in almost anything new, and doing so would be a breeze. As you slide backward through automotive history, however, the ability to drive…
