After we mourned the departure of Spinelli from his Postfather position at J-nik, we were enticed to check out one of his newest endeavors at Garage419, a video site dedicated to opinionated banter on the auto news of the day. It's kind of like a flame-war, but less civil and more informed. Matt Farah, from the New York Motor Club, and Mike get into it over the rumored Ferrari Dino, a possible revival of the Lamborghini LM002, how ugly the Porsche Panamera is and Farah's undying love for the DeLorean. They also take a few minutes to discuss street-racing and whether or not the laws governing our roadways accurately reflect what our machinery is capable of.

It's good, clean, wholesome entertainment for a lazy Saturday afternoon and you can check it out after the jump.

      It's kind of like a poor man's Top Gear. I can see it becoming pretty tedious.

      Spin can be pretty amusing (in text form) but looks like he's been squeezed until his eyes bulge out.

      No offence.

      Why does everyone have to dog on the Panamera so much? I for one like it.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Mike Spinelli certainly outperformed Matt Farah. I enjoyed the atmosphere of competition between the two.

      Chumps...

      Why would you use Germany as an example for speed laws? Use Montana, it's a much more relevent example...

      And what do they have against the PRV engine? It sucked in the Delorean because the car was too heavy, and US emissions equipment made it weak. It was a good motor for the rest of the world, and it did fine service as a sportscar motor in the Alpine A310.

      Freakin' chimps.

      I think these beginners in video need to learn not to wear striped/plaid shirts. It looks like ass on video.

      interesting...but ultimately pointless. Like AB says, yes, theyre informed, but all that theyre talking about are their opinions for the most part. They need to find a way to work more specs and facts and stuff in there.

      they quibble, not enough facts is all over the net, why have two people arguing it.. good luck to thier adventure.
      The only aspect of dino I know and to me it is the most famous: they made a true 120 degree v6 for racing and won with it for the short time they were "Allowed" to win. It mysteriously disappeared hardly referred to ever again. ?the dino went to the crazy angled v6 of 65 degrees, and it is not based on the race dino, it is based on whatever they felt like making.Wikipedia doesn't even mention it... go figure. I even downloaded a picture of it with the mid engine verifying the real v6 with the real math we may never really see on earth (aside from aviation). I suppose thier show is good to remind us of our own facts learned, and not argue..

        Amateur-driven wikipedia isn't really the be-all-and-end-all of automotive info.

      It's like bench racing with your friends. Hey, it's fun.
      Don't over analyze it, it's just opinions. Top gear is fun for the same reasons.


        • 7 Years Ago
        no, top gear is fun becasue they road/track test high end cars and do crazy challenges.
