Someday I will own a DeLorean. It won’t initially be a nice one though, because I am way to cheap to buy anything decent. It will probably be a total mess of a car that nobody else will touch. It will look like a pile of charred stainless steel that was hit by a train, and then dumped into a muddy river for a few years. Yeap, that is the one that I would buy. Haters gonna hate, but I love seeing a car brought back from the worst of the worst. The only thing better than that is being part of the restoration process. That said, assuming that you are not quite as cheap as me, but pretty darn close, I have a treat for you today. It comes in the form of good news in bad news though.
Good News: This DeLorean was not hit by a train! Fantastic right?
Bad News: It was on fire, but the current owners says that it merely “had minor fire in cabin“. Understatement of the year? Absolutely. We all know that fires are put out with water, so I think we can also assume that this car was filled with thousands of gallons of H2O as well. That doesn’t scare you right? Good!
Just less than 9 grand is all it will take to bring this beauty to your driveway. It’s just too bad it wasn’t hit by a train, or I may be a buyer. Ah well, better luck next time I guess…
Be sure to check it out on Hemmings for more pictures and info:
Yea, I could probably write something more clever here, but I think that a chameleon painted ’69 Karmann Ghia speaks for itself. 1600cc’s / Automatic Stickshift. There is nothing left to be said.
Maybe it’s the minitrucker in me, but I like my wheels to tuck. Hellaflush? Yea, I can be on board with that too. But this? This is just getting silly. I can appreciate the work that goes into any car, but this much negative camber leaves me at a loss for words.

Kasey Kahne drove the Red Bull machine to a victory last weekend at Phoenix International Raceway; Kyle Busch is at bay and on probation for his truck racing incident, and if you’re not on Brian Vickers bad side, and your name is Tony Stewart or Carl Edwards, you might just win the Nascar Sprint Cup Chase this weekend at Homestead.
Just three points… yes that’s right THREE!, separate first and second place Chase contenders Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart.
Last weekend at Phoenix, both contenders traded positions back-and-forth, like two heavy weight titans battling for every inch of real estate to get that extra point.
Edwards has been great all season, and Stewart has really started to pour it on at the end of the year, to make it not so easy for Edwards. Both guys went back and forth all race long last week, and still three points are all that remain for Stewart to over take Edwards.
This has to be the closest battles in Sprint Cup history. The race this weekend should be a great one to watch.

Did you guys catch the Top Gear USA episode several months ago where the guys attempted to travel into the wilderness with a plethora of camping equipment? Well, here are the cliff notes: It didn’t work out. The terrain was just too tough for their camping equipment to survive. Luckily for us common folks, there is a solution!
On eBay right now, is “The ultimate concept car. It is like having an ultimate 4×4 with a tent trailer built into the top.”
No, this is not a psychedelic dream, this is real life. You may think I’m being sarcastic, but I’m not. This thing really is quite cool. First off, it’s yellow, so when you are lost in the jungle, surrounded by sasquatch…es, helicopters can locate and save you. Secondly, it has super low mileage, and a manual transmission. Win. Lastly, the roof flips over and pops up into a tent. What else could you possibly want in a truck? Pop. Up. Tent. People. POP-UP!

Have you ever heard somebody proclaim “I’m going to drive this dang car until the wheels fall off!” ? Well, a friend of mine literally did drive at least 1 wheel off, and he captured that very special moment on video for the world to enjoy. Luckily for him and his Subaru, he knew something was horribly amiss before the wheel decided to take an early apex without him. He immediately pulled the heck over before the car could begin its full acrobatic yard sale routine. Extremely Lucky!
Note to self: Always film automotive adventures, because you’ll be glad that you did.
