Project 1985 Fiero Part 1

Posted by on 4:49 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Since most enthusiast forums have died out these days, most of the best project car builds you see are on YouTube. Not only is YouTube an outstanding format for project builds since you can choose to just post pictures and text (like on a forum) or you can go all out. Builders can show time lapse builds, they can choose to just type text, record voice overs or being on camera. Although not as cheap as forums, project car builds on YouTube still have a small barrier of entry but the end product is way more immersive. One of my favorite current...

Memory Lane Museum

Mooresville NC While participating in the Trump Charlotte Concours d’Elegance in 2018 we took time out to visit the Memory Lane Museum in Mooresville NC. Their web site suggest a little more than the museum delivers. It is contained in a large building and has a lot of cars and related “stuff” in it but the displays are poorly kept. When we arrived, late morning, they had to turn the lights on because no one else had yet visited that day. Don’t let this criticism stop you from visiting. Although there are far better...

Project 67 Mustang

Over a year ago we told you we were getting back on our 67 Mustang Fastback. This car has been in my garage or back yard for over 30 years! Early on it was my daily driver and then served as the “school car” for each of my three kids. They all contributed to adding a dent or two here and there. It has gone through a couple of different life cycles but it is now officially my driver classic. The car is a real deal Southern California car and has next to no rust but it has been messed with a lot which is ok with me. Our first steps...

This morning’s strange car was a Nissan S-Cargo

The Japanese Kei Car pool on Flickr came through. As it turns out, the strange vehicle I saw this morning was a Nissan S-Cargo (snail pun probably intended). According to the Wikipedia article it was a small van produced in Japan from 1989-1992. S-Cargo vans(?) were exported for use in other countries, and are coveted as business advertisement vehicles for their rarity and abundance of ad space. I also ran across another resource with tech specs for the Nissan S-Cargo. What a cool little...

What kind of car is this?

This interesting looking creation caught my eye this morning in traffic on the freeway. It had manufacturer plates and yellow round bug-eyed headlights. I was near the Nissan manufacturing facility, which would seem to go with how unique it looked. I think I’ll upload the pictures to flickr and add them to the Kei Cars pool to see if anyone can identify it. *UPDATE* – it’s a Nissan...

Chevrolet Volt real world MPG numbers are not so great

Chevrolet Volt real world MPG numbers are not so great

I guess I should express admiration for Chevrolet in taking its first step to create an electric/gas vehicle into production that’s not just a limited range pure electric or adding another crappy hybrid to its fleet of Tahoes. But I can’t. According to real world road tests done by Popular Mechanics, you can only expect to go just over 30 miles after charging all night before the gas engine kicks in and gets very average fuel economy (35 MPG average). Basically, you get to spend $45K (for the car and charger) to plug your car in...

Smart partners with Nissan to make even uglier cars

Smart partners with Nissan to make even uglier cars

While tiny little cars might have seemed like a star in the face of five-bucks-a-gallon gas, they don’t shine so brightly when gas is back under three a gallon. What’s the solution to this? How about rebadging a Nissan Versa and selling it as a Smart? Brilliant!
