Cruising through the local Cars & Coffee this past weekend I was checking out the GT3RS and Aventador that had pulled in, when out of the corner of my eye I spotted a tan little car that had the hood up. It was parked off by itself with only a few people mingling near it. With the crowds flocking to the newly arrived super cars, I made my way over to take a peek at the interesting little car. When I got closer I spotted that not only was this little car an old Fiat 600, it was a very long way from stock.
Change is coming whether you like it or not. That is just the bare reality of it. Electric cars ARE the way of the future.

Motorsport is so much more than just racing. It’s the passion and dedication that goes into it. It’s the desire to be the greatest and the willingness to sacrifice everything to get there. The raw emotion of defeat. The elation of victory. The storied past and the hope of the future yet to come. Nothing has ever captured this much like the video series Racing In Slow Motion.
The Australian Grand Prix was the electric start to the brand new 2018 Formula 1 season that we were all hoping for. Rivalries are set to be continued, a dark horse has emerged, and certain engines continue to struggle. Here are the top 5 things that we learned from the Australian Grand Prix.
They say flowers blooming is the indicator that spring is around the corner, but we believe that the arrival of a new generation of Formula 1 cars is a better indicator. Welcome to the 2018 Formula 1 season complete with a new F1 logo, a couple new names in the field, and a controversial new Halo on every car!
Ten years ago the dumbest car thief ever decided to steal a modified R32 Skyline GTR from an automotive enthusiast when pretending to take the car on a test drive. Although I am very late to this party, the story is just too good to not share.
If I told you that there was a 1981 Honda Accord Gasser that could do 0-60 in 2.7 seconds you’d probably think that it has some loud thumping V8 or a 2JZ powering it. Well you would be wrong. This particular Accord has a little something special under the hood, electricity.
