Car and Driver

I have a car and I drive it

Seems Legit

Apart from criminal conspiracy, insurance fraud, receipt of stolen property…

2005 Ferrari f430 Berlinetta.

I’m assisting in brokering the sale of a near mint condition 2005 Ferrari f430 Berlinetta. The car is not stolen, salvaged, wrecked, or damaged in anyway. It does have a lien on it. This is an excellent parts car for someone who already owns an f430 or for someone who is crafty enough with obtaining titles. There will be NO TITLE with the car, only a bill of sale. Please no tire kickers, serious interest only.

Things you learn by listening

Previously, I argued that publicity portended the death of Hookers and Squirrels the “Motorsports gathering” (née Cars and Coffee) in Scottsdale.  Me, as an avowed hater of the city and idealized lifestyle of Scottsdale, fully expected that the city would take notice of this completely Constitutional gathering and start whining about “event” permits and other bureaucratic bullshit cities impose. I thought…

Fancy Parking For Dummies

What is Fancy Parking? Fancy Parking is many things to many people. It’s a way of life, a philosophy, a global movement, and honestly, any attempt to define it would be an insult to Thousands of Fancy Parkers worldwide.

Soul: Sold

What a difference a couple of months makes. Suddenly (or so it seems), Cars and Coffee has turned into post-Soviet Russia.  No more rigid no ads, no promoting policies.  It’s open season. Suddenly, the “event” has outside corporate presenters. Yay capitalism. (This time: McLaren Scottsdale).  Just as suddenly, no one gives a shit about the unofficial capitalists.

It never rains but it pours

Just as we’re about to launch a major escalation in our moonlighting… the day job rears it’s ugly head and says “hold on there.”  But we’re undeterred.  We’re coming for you, automotive press.  And yeah, it’s gonna be more like Jesse Pinkman, and less like Edward R. Murrow.

Monday Musing

Am I turning into my grandfathers? Last year it was this: This was the old man’s dream:  power windows, power locks, power motor, plus style and gravitas. Karma: I don’t think he lusted after the falling apart piece of shitness of this particular example. He had the money, but had to wait for the old lady to die off before he…

Zinda, his face black, his eyes red. But not for long.

In our last episode, the great truck hunt was down to 3 finalists.  There was one clear favorite, lack of hemi notwithstanding. We took it easy yesterday, being wickedly hungover a bit peeved at Buck, our sales rep for a terse and kinda rude exchange Saturday about valuing a trade. Karma:  also because Lurleen, uh, hoped we would reconsider the utility…
