I've always liked this car. It's honest and wasn't designed by a committee. It's a joy to see a designer's vision carried to fruition. Every element of the car goes together -- and that's why it's...

I never saw an actual Can-Am race, but after that series folded, a lot of the cars ran in the SCCA ASR class. I was a corner worker at Indianapolis Raceway Park and towed an early McLaren back to...

Here's one. 1962 Invicta Station Wagon right after my mom and dad bought it new. Yes that's me.

We went all over the country on vacations in that beast.

The loudest race cars I ever heard were the Can Am cars. You could FEEL the sound of those cars vibrating in your chest.

It lacked both the passenger and storage space you'd expect in a car that size. Fuel mileage wasn't up to snuff either. Shoddy materials, poor workmanship -- it seemed like the carmakers simply...

That was the car that marked the stinking low tide of the American automotive industry. Ugly, impractical, inefficient and handled like an ox-cart.

That is exactly what a 21st century Trabant should look like. It's not as cute as the Japanese retro-mobiles but it's not bad either.

IMHO, Button doesn't react well to pressure. When he had a completely superior car, he was okay, but when everybody else caught up, he seemed to tighten up and lose form. Now he's in a downward...

Yes. The object of war is to win as soon as possible with as few casualties as possible. An invasion of the Japanese homeland would have been a bloodbath for both sides.

I won't complain about 10 hours of coverage. NASCAR pays the bills for Speed and they provide sports cars and F1 almost as a favor to the rest of us.

Thank you, Speed.

It might be okay if they called it something else but it's nothing like the mythic DS cars of the past. Epic Fail.
