  1. The Petersen Museum: A More Perfect Automotive Education

    25 Aug 2016

    Let’s say you met a time traveler. Someone who had been instantly transported from a time long ago to 2016. This person would have zero concept of modern technology, and transportation, and would inevitably be very curious about, well, everything. Being a car enthusiast, you’d get right to the point…


  2. When The Question Is German V8 Sports Cars - Torque Is The Answer

    25 Aug 2016

    The formula is correct with this bawdy German duo. A well balanced chassis, drive to the rear wheels, and most importantly a potent V8 motor up front. Only thing missing was a sinuous stretch of tarmac, which we just so happened to find. When these cars were new I ate…


  3. Recreational Drone Flying At Its Best

    25 Aug 2016

    Just flying around, minding my business, and this dude comes out of no where and starts sliding all over the place. #notbad Keep up with JBH on instagram / twitter www.youtube.com/jbh1126


  4. BMW M Laptimer Records Telemetry Everywhere You Go And It’s Amazing

    25 Aug 2016

    Did you ever wonder what percentage of the throttle you are using on the way to get a sandwich? Were you ever curious how many Gs you pulled on the way home from clarinet lessons? Do you have a BMW? You might just be in luck. BMW says these fancy…


  5. PTG E36 - In Depth With A PTG Technician

    25 Aug 2016

    I posted this video a few months ago, and for the first time in the history of the internet, I received a truly productive YouTube comment: Steve did email me, and ended up answering a whole bunch of questions which I have posted below with some images I took shortly…


  6. How To Turn Your Mom’s BMW Into The Most Expensive GoPro Remote Ever

    25 Aug 2016

    I use my GoPro a lot, most of the time suction cup’d on the outside of a car at some precarious angle. Before the GoPro app and remote, we had a lot of GoPro face, but now there is GoPro BMW as well I’m hoping a future firmware upgrade will allow…


  7. Legend Of The Mid-Engined Aston Martin

    25 Aug 2016

    Very rarely do I get into legit argument about cars with someone. I usually try to avoid arguments in general, especially when my conversation partner is SO sure. Like SO, SO, 100% SURE!! Which is why I was quick to revert into “agree-mode” when a truck driver told me he once hauled a mid-engined…


  8. BMW 328 Roadster: Stunning Sheetmetal

    25 Aug 2016

    Yesterday I saw one of my absolute dream cars in person for the first time. I had a hard time putting sentences together…


  9. How To Fit In A Back Seat With A Half Cage (Why It’s A Bad Idea)

    21 Mar 2016

    Now, let me preface this by emphasizing how bad of an idea it is to ride in a car with an unpadded cage without the proper safety equipment; you could be seriously injured.   That said, intrepid CCC mechanic Ethan demonstrates the most gracefulest of ways (not graceful at all) to…


  10. M3 Duality: Which Would You Choose?

    21 Mar 2016

    One of our members picked up the Gallardo Spyder yesterday and left his very clean, mostly stock, 80k mile E30 M3 in the garage for the weekend. I couldn’t help but line our E30 up next to it and make some comparisons.


  11. Driving & Talking: 1989 BMW M3

    21 Mar 2016

    I’ve been driving this M3 as much as possible for roughly the last year (er as much as my bosses will let me) and I’ve finally collected my thoughts enough to talk some sense (and a lot of nonsense) about one of the greatest cars ever built.


  12. Is The E39 M5 Too Quiet?

    21 Mar 2016

    Usually I’m all for making cars louder; half the fun of driving is hearing the sound of the engine. But in the case of the E39 M5, I kind of like the fact that it’s not really loud.  It definitely has that V8 bass when you rev it, but it’s…


  13. Go Ahead, Wax Poetic About the E30 M3

    21 Mar 2016

    But it doesn’t mean shit until you’ve chased down a current generation M3 on track.  Okay to be fair, I may not be the most impartial voice on this topic (I love E30 M3s), BUT, having driven both first and current generation M3s on track I will invoke a small…
