Street Neo Classics —”As someone who came of age in the late 80s and early 90s it was incredible to see cars that I grew up with now on display at the Street Neo Classics. You come to expect legendary and culturally relevant sports cars like 240Z, Integra, and NSX to be there in droves. But bone-stock (dare I say, concours-quality!) Tercels and Cressida’s? Woah, I am getting old – because the cars we used to learn to drive stick on and borrowed from our friends’ moms are now collectible!” Glenn Oyoung reports.
LA CAR REPORT— What do you get when you drop the shells of today’s sport-compact cars onto purpose-built rally cars pushing 600hp, invite a bunch of ridiculously talented drivers from around the world to pilot them, and make them all mix it up on a course that includes a drag race at the standing start, a dirt x asphalt combo platter, and some airborne door-to-door action? It’s Red Bull’s Global Rallycross (GRC), the sport that has since evolved into a full-fledged race series featuring two classes: Supercar and GRC Lites. Glenn Oyoung reports.
AUTO REVIEW—The new Clubman seems to be the sleekest and most centered of the whole MINI line. The low, slightly sloping roof line gives this one a sporting aire, a proper English “shooting brake” style, if you will, that fits nicely with the performance-aggressive Cooper package that motivates this one in fine fashion. And motivation is the watchword here, this is the fully “breathed-on” John Cooper engine package, a 2-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder, twin-cam mill that plays even bigger than the listed 189 horsepower and 207 pounds-feet of torque. Doug Stokes reports.
