AutoPort Finds

AutoPort Finds

Spotted by the Halifax AutoPort: someone in Canada bought an Alfa! Someone else bought a V60 Polestar! (But not in Rebel Blue).

Sorry for the poor quality photos. Had to zoom on an iPhone. Gross.

SPOILER DISCUSSION: Final Top Gear Episode

SPOILER DISCUSSION: Final Top Gear Episode

Spoiler comments after the jump.

Here are my thoughts.

1. Jeremy’s “I hate working for Top Gear” comment during the SUV segment was especially poignant.

2. They never addressed the literal elephant in the room.

3. That ended with a piddle.

4. I need to track down a 124 Spider.

Help Me Oppo, You're My Only Hope. 

I need your car configurator skills, Oppo. My dad is thinking about selling his 2012 Volvo XC70 for something else. I have a good idea on what cars to recommend him (more suggestions are welcome), but I figured you lot would know how to specifically spec them for the best value.

A bit of criteria;

- Must be from a Canadian website. We get different packages from the US.

- The longer the...

5 Minutes in Photoshop

5 Minutes in Photoshop

That’s all it took to fix the BMW E9 homage. It’s not perfect (the face is still terrifying), but it’s an improvement.

Help. 

Help. 

Accidentally drove over a broken beer bottle. I’m planning for the worst.

Does anyone know if you can use a patch kit on MPSS tires?

No exciting photo, sorry. Kinjaaaaaaa.

No.

No.

Don’t.

Throwback Wednesday

Throwback Wednesday

A few years ago, I gave the Volvo Concept Coupe the Polestar treatment. It resurfaced on my computer, and I still want one.

The driver and I were both fine, he just over-corrected his steering. Very comfortable crash. The car was an ~’07 Nissan Altima.

Cheap Car Challenge

Cheap Car Challenge

I’m planning on moving to Vancouver at the end of the year, and I need to find a car. TLDR at the bottom.

A little background; I’m a Master of Architecture student in Halifax, NS. My school lets us take an 8 month work-term anywhere between January and August 2017. The program is structured like this: 8 months in school, 8 months working, then 8 months doing a thesis. I’m coming up on the...

2017 Abarth 124 Spider: This Is It

2017 Abarth 124 Spider: This Is It

So many car reveals. This is the new Abarth 124 Spider. Power is up 10hp (from 160 to 170), and torque stays at 184Ib-ft. The good news is it has a mechanical LSD, Bilstein dampers, Brembo brakes, and Record Monza exhaust.

That last one is the Abarth 124 Spider Rally. It gets a bigger 1.8L engine making 300hp. It’s built to FIA R-GT regulations. Very nice.
