VW Nationals Indianapolis Pictures

VW Nationals Indianapolis Pictures

The following are our pictures from the 2013 VW Nationals in Indianapolis. Honestly, the event was mildly disappointing to me as I was expecting a larger turnout for the car show, swamp meet, and autocross events. The weather may have had something to do with it as it was overcast and a large chance of rain. The drag racing was exciting even with the crowds being smaller than expected. Only 2 or 3 cars participated in … Read entire article »

Road Rocket Rumble 2012 Pictures

Road Rocket Rumble 2012 We decided to try to beat the heat by going on Friday to the Road Rocket Rumble. There were not as many cars as expected to be there on Saturday, but we still saw plenty of awesome cars. Almost everyone we talked to was pleasant and more than willing to talk about their ride. We also spoke a couple of pinstripers at the event. One of the guys was super nice, … Read entire article »

The 2013 Ford Fusion or Aston Martin?

The 2013 Ford Fusion or Aston Martin?

In case you haven’t seen it yet, Ford has been showing off it’s great looking 2013 Ford Fusion, but is it really a new look? Yes it is a new look for the Fusion, but doesn’t it somewhat resemble a brand of car which Ford owned until 2007? I don’t know if you see it too, but to me it resembles what a cheaper Aston Martin 4-door would possibly look like. Take a look at … Read entire article »

Hunnert Car Pile Up Continued…

Hunnert Car Pile Up Continued…

I was so happy with the HCPU that I decided to expand on Rob’s article and further the discussion, I figured I would give both of our readers some more to read on the subject.   The spectrum of my automotive appreciation is quite narrow, there are things that I can tolerate, and themes that I despise, mostly pet peeves and irritants.  The HCPU focuses on the single greatest following of excellence in automotive culture. The Chrome Czars … Read entire article »

The Lego Volkswagen T1 Camper Van

The Lego Volkswagen T1 Camper Van

Looking back at my childhood, I had many toys which were my favorites. If any of you are like me, one of those toys would be Legos. To be quite honest, Legos are still one of my favorite toys, in fact my wife got me a Lego car kit for Christmas last year. When I was younger I was always building cars out of Legos, I didn’t have many of the car specific Lego kits … Read entire article »

The 10th Hunnert Car Pile-up Review and Pictures

The 10th Hunnert Car Pile-up Review and Pictures

The Hunnert Car Pile-up is an amazing show put on by the car club the Chrome Czars and the show has some very specific rules to what cars can be entered. Your car must be a 1964 or earlier Hot Rod or Custom built in a “Traditional Style.” This means all cars in the show should look like they could have been built in the 1940s, 1950s, or 1960s with little or no visible modern … Read entire article »

Was that a Hyundai or a Mercedes with a Bentley badge?

Was that a Hyundai or a Mercedes with a Bentley badge?

Is it just me or does the new Hyundai Genesis Sedan look vaguely familiar? If you are like me, you pay attention to all different types of cars and stylings when you are out and about. The other day I saw a Hyundai Genesis and I unfortunately wasn’t even sure it was a Hyundai. I thought at first, is that a Mercedes, but it looks like it has a Bentley emblem? Am I losing my … Read entire article »
