    There’s a reason Italian food is so popular; be it pizza joints, pasta houses, ready-made dishes or jars of sauces, it’s an easy dish to make in some form or other, and pretty much no matter what you do to it, it’s gonna taste pretty good. However it came about, it’s the sort of food…

    I know this is Internet 101 right here for any auto geek, but it is time to honor a man with a passion that exemplified what it means to be a member of the Hoonisphere. If you think that looks like a normal Dodge Minivan – hop the jump to get served… (that’s right, I…

    What’s better than 216.1 inches of 5 passenger personal coupe? Why 216.1 inches of luxury pickup truck, of course. While no price is fronted in the ad for this uniquely modified Lincoln, its innate practicality as a mobile landing field for light aircraft is of immeasurable value. With only 54K on the clock, this bench-seated…

    Are you worried about your current vehicle’s ability to get you from point A to point B? Then you should really consider plunking down the lowly eight Benjamins for this former Postal Jeep. That’s because “neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these courageous couriers from the swift completion of their…

    Crosswalks are more than just places to line up for an impromptu stop light drag race, they also serve an important function in pedestrian safety, and provide instruction for the slower Boy Scouts in gaining their granny-helping-across-the-street badge. Usually, at a 4-way stop, the cross walks are a simple set of white lines with a…

    Yesterday, Name That Part was solved in minutes. Clearly, we’ve been too easy on you. Now, granted, p161911 (who I’m firmly convinced is either Borg or a Droid, with such a lovely alphanumeric name) did solve it by finding the site I used, which I personally think is blatantly cheating. In that situation, clearly, the…

    comments

    745i, that’s a 4.5L V8, right? Wrong! The 745i was arguably BMW’s most egregious departure from the [Series][Engine Size] nomenclature (at least until the current “Xdrive35i” or whatever they’re doing). You see, BMW decided that the turbocharged 3.2L I-6 had comparable power output to a 4.5L naturally aspirated engine (and that most owners would never…

    Time once again to put your gray matter to work by trying to guess the identity of this car from a single, but quite revealing picture. From this shot you know two things: that it is supercharged, and it’s blue. Hey, you’re half-way there! Click through the jump to see if you were right.

    I’ve been saying for a while now that Canada has a whole hell of a lot of car nuts. Heck, one of the Canadian institutions, Canadian Tire, started out as just another tire and auto-parts shop, and it’s now a huge mega-retailer, rivalling WalMart, but without all the uber-cheap Made-In-China crap. I’m not sure if…
