Just spotted this perfectly preserved 1981 Honda CM400T on eBay, too bad it’s in Wisconsin. So clean I would feel bad about bastardizing it. I’d have to find an extra tank and side covers to paint I think But is anyone in the midwest wants a bike, this appears to be nothing but a well […]
Spotted this old timer still hauling the something up and over the Sepulveda Pass last week. He wasn’t moving very fast, but then none of us were in the morning traffic. From the sound of it he was still sporting the flathead V8 in all its low compression glory and the non-syncro 3 speed. Whomever […]
Back in June of 2011 I spotted this off-road ready Mercedes Benz Gazelle replica kit car in the parking lot of the junk yard. Well, today I saw it cruising down the street and it appears to have sprouted a full off road spec roll cage since the last time I saw it.
Not a hell of a lot of information on this one, but lets go from what we can see. It looks like a 1st generation Honda Goldwing GL1000 front end, welded to a modified 70s Toyota pick up truck, powered by what looks to be a GM 2.8 FWD 60 degree V6 driver train from […]
I can’t take credit for this it was tweeted, and on the BCAS earlier today, but here is is in all its glory a Cowboy Cadillac that seems to have driven thru the J.C.Whitney warehouse attracting accessories. I’m going to start with my favorite picture because it is the wrongest of them all. Despite what […]
Some people claim 24 Hours of Lemons is a waste of good cars, but wouldn’t you rather see this 1970 Ford Mustang running around a road course than running errands to Home Depot, where I shot this? It looks as if someone in high school in 1981 tricked this thing out with shackles, big wide […]
At this point we have less than a week until the 24 Hours of Lemons Sears Pointless and the car still doesn’t run. At this point failure is not an option. If I can’t make it run today, and make the tranny go into at least 1, 2 and 3 there is no time. I […]
Just a quick update on the M50: the owner called to tell me it was still marking its territory with a drop of oil now and then, and that he had sold it. I told him great, and that for the 1960s and an Italian bike that was considered oil tight. Hopefully the new owner […]
