If you’re an automotive enthusiast here in the United States then you probably know there were earlier versions of the Nissan GT-R before the current model. In fact the Nissan GT-R has been around in one form or another since 1969. The R32, or third Gen GT-R, was produced from 1989-1994 and never sold here in the States. It’s also regarded by some to be one of the most collectible GT-R’s out there. Endless, a tuner shop in Japan, has managed to get a whopping 1,200 hp out of the R32 and done so in a manner that not only keeps the car streetable, but reliable as well.

Here you have it, the car I have been lusting after for about 15 years. This is a 1970 Plymouth Sport Fury, and in my eyes it’s one of the coolest road-sleds ever made. About the size of a Chevrolet Suburban, the ’70 Sport Fury is one of the cars that you either love or hate. Men seem to gravitate towards it, while women are generally repulsed. The fuselage styling, considered to be cutting edge in the 1970′s, gives the car a wonderfully aggressive look. Combine that with a blacked-out grille and the option of a 7.2-liter 440 cubic inch V8 with a Six-Pack set-up, and we’re talking about a car that has “EVIL” written all over it.
So, let’s hear it – what’s the one car that you’d eventually love to have in your garage?
This is the 1930 Ford Model A hot-rod known as Kryptonite. Built by the folks at Smokehouse Rods & Cycles in Fredericksburg, TX, Kryptonite pays homage to those amazing customs from the 1940′s and 50′s. A 401 Buick “Nail-head” V-8 with drag star long intake, Stromberg carburetors, and Sanderson lake headers reside up front, while the original all steel body keeps passengers safe and sound. The car also features a GM Turbo-400 automatic transmission and a 10 bolt posi rear-end. Now while this kryptonite green sled may not be for everyone, there is no denying that the amount of work that’s gone into this build is nothing short of staggering. Check it out on eBay!
The Aston Martin Vanquish and the Lamborghini Countach. Two super cars from different eras that provoke different reactions from all that view them. The Countach is the stuff that childhood dreams are made of, whereas the Vanquish is what Fortune 500 CEO’s think about. The Countach is a superhero, where the Aston Martin is an accountant. The Countach is passion, performance and penis (that’s right, I said penis) all rolled into one, where the Vanquish is a nice suit with fancy underwear. Ezra Dyer of Yahoo Autos recently got a chance to compare the two and surprisingly his thoughts were very similar to my own. The fun begins after the jump.More »
Do you like military vehicles, zombies and post-apocalyptic Japanimation? Well if you do, then get ready to view a ride that would fit perfectly in your garage. Builder Sataomi Nakawatase has taken queues from each category and crafted one hellacious ride out an old school Nissan Silvia. Not just a piece of art, this Silvia is apparently just as home on the racetrack as it is scaring the crap out Japan’s younger population. In short, it’s awesome!More »
The problem with GT cars here in the U.S. is that for some reason, they’re never really as good as we want them to be. They all have high-style and big power, but they’re a compromise between a true sports car and a full-on open road car. Carlos Lago recently got his hands on the new 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT to see just how good this newly revamped super-Benz really is. Check it out after the jump. Via Motor TrendMore »
Even though it’s almost 20-years old this 1995 Ferrari 512M looks remarkably fresh. Maybe it’s because it only has a scant 5,427 miles on the clock, or maybe it’s because the 512M was the best of the Testarossa lineup. Built at the end of the Tesstarossa’s 12-year life cycle, the 512M benefited from some pretty special upgrades. The flip-up headlamps for example were now gone and replaced by more modern flush mounted units, while power output on the mid-mounted flat-12 engine was bumped to 432 hp and 369 lb.ft. of torque. This particular vehicle (number 57 of 75 worldwide) is currently for sale on eBay and is located in San Francisco, CA. It also looks to be in truly spectacular condition. Check it out on eBay.
he 1932 Ford is said to be the quintessential hot-rod and a favorite amongst customizers. They’ve been transformed into everything from light-to-light drag and open road cars, to streamlined speed machines that have run flat-out at places like the Bonneville Salt Flats. The one you are about to see however has been transformed into something that I don’t even think Henry Ford could’ve imagined. Multimatic-designed, a company that specializes in advanced suspension systems, has recently developed an in-wheel suspension system that is one of the trickest things we’ve ever seen. Everything hides inside the wheel hub with the goal of making everything compact and lightweight. Click through and check it out after the jump. Via ChromjuwelenMore »
The next time you feel sick, stub your toe or maybe even sprain an ankle, you need to think of Darius Glover. He’s the guy in this video that’s soaring through the air on a dirt bike while being physically strapped in. You see at 15, while racing, Darius was involved in an accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down. His doctors, friends and relatives said he’d never ride again – Darius disagreed.

The first generation Buick Riviera that were built between 1963-1965 are some of the most classic and understated designs to ever come out of Detroit. Designed strictly as a four passenger, and originally powered by a 325 hp 401 cu.in. V8, they not only had the power to compete with just about anything in their class, but redefined what the executive muscle car could be. From the beautiful grill to the clam shell headlights on the 1965 model, the Buick Riviera has stood the test of time incredibly well. The following ’65 comes to us from eGarage, and although slightly modified, it fully showcases just how beautiful these cars truly are. Video after the jump!More »
