There’s a cheeky joke that goes “Q: Know why the British don't make computers? A: They couldn't figure out how to make them leak oil!” As the owner of a vintage British sports car I’m not at all offended by oleaginous humor. For every drop of oil lost on the highway and driveway, I’ve found buckets of joy behind th...

Sporty station wagons are hot right now, and none more smokin' hot than Jaguar's XF fast hauler, blogs Road Test Editor Howard Walker.

Yep, you heard that right; the return of Uncle Waldo's station wagon, though thankfully without the faux-wood sides. The latest to join the ranks is Jaguar's sleek a...

PART III: REBUILDING MY TOTALLY-NOT-COLLECTIBLE MUSTANG!
Stephen Cox blogs about re-powering his four-cylinder ’80 Mustang that’s been in his garage for decades. Now it’s on-track to be a potent Ponycar. Ford Motor Company built 128,893 Mustang coupes during the 1980 model year, making my Medium Blue Glow four-cylinder example anything but rare. I bought the car when I was seventeen and it was my primary transportation for a decade. It now has nearly a quarter of a million miles on the odometer. Since the car has little value, I figure there's no ...
