Daughter Reunites Stepfather With A Porsche 914: Video

Project cars don't always work out the way one would hope. Time, money, and life can get in the way.

It's Called Rockzilla, And It's For Sale

If there's one thing we don't like about the Ford Excursion, it's the excessive use of body paneling. We don't mean trim, we mean actual bits of body that could be removed to save weight and increase performance. Thankfully, there's someone out there who agrees with us.
