Rough Start “Tour Of Temptation”: 1981 GMC Caballero

The list of cars I actually want to own longer than a few weeks at a time is fairly short, to be honest. I want to sample everything, I want to push cars to the limit, I want to understand the...

Rough Start “Tour Of Temptation”: 1994 Dodge Ram 1500

Out of all of the trucks built since 1990, the 1994-2002 generation of the Dodge Ram is my favorite. When these things came out, they immediately made GM and Ford trucks look dated. The GM trucks had...

For those of you who are following along on our Rocky Mountain Race Week 2020 coverage, my end of the story goes like this: after the livestream at Bandimere Raceway, Haley and I crashed at the hotel...

The Hauler: This 1978 Ford Flatbed Is A Coyote-Swapped Beast!

Money No Object: 1986 Ford Bronco XLT – One Burly-Looking Bullnose

Everybody is waiting on baited breath for the return of the Ford Bronco. The upcoming version will be retro in design, in both two- and four-door layouts and will be aimed squarely at the Jeep...

Money No Object: 1970 Dodge D300 – Working Never Looked So Good

I’ve always been drawn to the idea of a work truck. Blame my father for instilling that stereotype of “the truck is for work, the car is for everything else” into me when I was...

Bite-Sized Hauler: 1976 Ford Courier – The Little Stepside That Can

A Mazda B-series by any other name, the Ford Courier was a very appropriate answer that landed just in time for the first gas crisis and rode out through 1982 in the U.S. market just fine. A small,...

Hellcat Hauler: Tell Me You Wouldn’t Swap A Third-Gen Hemi Into This 1992 Dodge D350!

With Holley unloading the swap kit program for 1972-1993 Dodge trucks, it was a given that I would be foaming at the mouth to try that plan out. Nothing against Angry Grandpa, but in the end...

Random Car Review: 1994 GMC Suburban by Lingenfelter: Would 605 Cubic Inches Please You, Sir?

(Lead and engine photos: Aaron Kiley/Car and Driver) 1994…what a year. Music, news, world events…way too much to dive into without going off on thousands of tangents, so let’s stick...

Rough Start: Go Big With A 1974 Dodge D-500 And Give The Old Farm Truck A Fair Shake

The Mopar itch is never too far from this soul, it seems. I might be up to the elbows in Ford products right now but there’s still a part of me that is dying inside for an older Chrysler ride...

Random Car Review: The 1993 Chevrolet C-1500 “Coolside” Factory Concept…Because What Compliments A 510ci Big-Block Better Than All-Wheel-Drive?

At the dawn of the 1990s the auto manufacturers were still in the “early awakening” process, barely stirring, just starting to figure out that smog equipment, emissions laws, computers...

Classic YouTube: The 1977 Dodge Ramcharger Promotional Video – The Bright Spot In Chrysler’s Dark Days!

Chrysler in 1977 was a mess. At least, the car side of the house was…the mid-size models got the same names as the full-size models, the big cars weren’t selling because the buying public...

Unhinged: The “Bronco II Incident”, Or How I Managed To Not Land A Truck On A Friend

In the summer of 2000, I was living a teenage fantasy: I was living all but unsupervised, had a job at a carpet installation shop, a T-top Monte Carlo to bomb around in, a girlfriend, a couple of...

Top 11: McTaggart’s 1990s Picks – The Cars From The Horsepower Re-Awakening!

So, I decided to revisit this list to see if my mind had changed in the five years since I first wrote it. Obviously, with only eleven spots, there were going to be some omissions and some contention...
