The W140 is Still the Best S-Class The W140 is Still the Best S-Class

I have driven the past four generations of S-Class, fairly in depth, and none of the newest ones have even come close to matching the world-class craftsmanship that the W140 possesses.

I am deeply cut to learn the death of my personal favorite F1 driver, Niki Lauda.

Unnecessary Car Shopping with DaftRyosuke - The World is not Enough, but maybe a $40k Aston Martin is Unnecessary Car Shopping with DaftRyosuke - The World is not Enough, but maybe a $40k Aston Martin is

Found at a Chevrolet dealership of all places. They’ll sell anything these days.

It’s been fun shooting this.

Competition of the Coupes - A Look at Four 1/43 Coupes Competition of the Coupes - A Look at Four 1/43 Coupes

Thanks to the bad influences of fellow LaLD alumni BlueMazda2, I’ve been bitten hard by the 1/43 scale bug. Something about the compact size and reasonably cheap prices of these models has made them extremely enticing to me, plus the fact that there are just some models that are available in 1/43 that you can’t get…

Happy International Land Rover Day, from the only Range Rovers that matter.

The Roller That Time Forgot - Remembering the Silver Seraph The Roller That Time Forgot - Remembering the Silver Seraph

Think back, for a second, to the 1990s, specifically 1998. The Clinton administration was coming to an end, Y2K hype was just beginning to ramp up, and the ownership of two of Great Britain’s greatest marques was up in the air, leading to one of the greatest controversies to ever happen within the 113 year history of…

Breaking Down my 1990 Lexus LS400: What's the Deal? Breaking Down my 1990 Lexus LS400: What's the Deal?

For those who aren’t acquainted yet, yesterday I picked up a new project/daily: a 1990 LS400, for which I paid $650 for in total. I’m on day two of ownership and I have to say, I absolutely love this car. But, it’s not perfect, not by any means...but I’m going to make it perfect by the end of it.

Good morning everyone. Good morning everyone.

I’m pretty sure the odometer on the Lexus is  broken. How many miles does it have? Who the hell knows?

I Did a Thing! I Did a Thing!

Say hello to my new 1990 Lexus LS400!

1981 Lotus Esprit Turbo by AutoArt 1981 Lotus Esprit Turbo by AutoArt

Well, this is a day that we all knew was coming. Since I got back into 1:18 collecting last year and coupled with a job that pays me well, the day would eventually come where I would get my hands on an AutoArt. I’m happy to say that this is the first one I got of two currently in my collection, and I got it at a crazy…

Caffeine and Octane Atlanta - 4/7/19 Caffeine and Octane Atlanta - 4/7/19

It’s been a couple of years since I journeyed to Atlanta for a car show. Hell, I nearly didn’t even this time, but I still forced myself out of bed at 2:30 AM just to make it in time. I was greeted with many a Mercedes, some shrewd negotiation, and a strange French thing. Worth it? Yeah, probably. Here’s the…

Oh hello Oh hello

A wild Peugeot 508 appeared...in Atlanta.

2019 Alabama International Auto Show: An Overview 2019 Alabama International Auto Show: An Overview

As per my yearly tradition, since I was about 4 years old, I ventured to the Alabama Auto Show this weekend to see what was on offer for 2019. Honestly, I wondered if there was even a reason for me to go, considering I get most of my fill on most makes and models at work, but then I realized that why should a new job…

TIL that if anyone tells you that BMW has lost their way, they’re bullshitting.

The P80/C is a better modern take on the F40 than the F8 Tributo is. Shame there’s only one.

I’m gonna find a way to like this design. It’s just gonna take some time.
