    Featured: Project Ugly Horse: Part IV
    1358528280

    Bits and Pieces The asphyxiation-blue plastic of my dash looked like it would snap under a crass tone. The line between cleverness and idiocy is a blurry one. After reading a number of write-ups on the best way to swap pedal boxes in a Fox Body Ford Mustang, I decided to eschew common ...

    Featured: Project Ugly Horse: Part III
    1355428860

    Now With More Manual Transmission Trust me when I say there is no more detestable a sensation than being slowly overrun by cold tranny fluid. This isn't my first rodeo. I have, in the past, pulled any number of transmissions, both automatic and manual, and no matter how many times I do the ...

    Video: Nissan crowd-sourced Project 370Z moves to stage two
    1337730000

    Nissan has finally wrapped up work on its crowd-sourced project 370Z. The company put the sports car on a dyno for final tuning and wound up with somewhere around 504 horsepower. That's not too shabby given the jump in gusto was gleaned from a few bolt-on parts. Nissan then set about fitting the ...

    1330021800

    Nissan has turned to Autoblog for help picking one of the vehicle's most important systems: the suspension. Nissan knows how passionate fans of the company's 370Z can be. The enthusiast community has long embraced the Z as a capable performer right out of the box and a willing platform that ...

    Rumormill: Bugatti developing $3m uber-Veyron track car
    1199978880

    var digg_url = 'http://digg.com/autos/Bugatti_building_new_supercar_that_s_faster_than_Veyron'; Speculation over a potential second model from Bugatti has been a colossal roller-coaster. There were rumors of a super-luxury sedan, an entry-level roadster and a targa variant of the existing ...

    SEMA 2007 VIDEO: Popular Hotrodding's Project X
    1193788140

    With 19 magazine covers and a starring role in Hollywood Nights, Popular Hotrodding's Project X is the classic hotrod. Since 1965 it's been modified constantly, but GM wanted to take a shot at the vehicle it had created 50 years ago. The General started with a 427 crate engine, and added parts from ...

    Hah! So Lotus is working on a new supercar!
    1192562940

    It is a Lotus, it isn't a Lotus. It is a Lotus, it isn't a Lotus. Today we think it could be, despite earlier reports to the contrary. But whether that mysetrious test mule spotted with Lotus paperwork was actually a Lotus or not, the famed British sportscar company in fact does have a supercar ...

    Autoblog Project Edsel: Paint and Body
    1189360920

    It's been an exciting start, mainly because I get to dig out all my old model building tools and skills. That's also why it's been a little slow since the initial post went up, because I've had to find all those model building tools. The last model I built was a '67 Belvidere GTX over ten years ago ...

    A project car on a blogging budget: Autoblog Project Edsel
    1187875920

    The recreational car show season is about two-thirds of the way done for 2007, at least here in New England. There will be good cruise days sprinkled in until about Halloween, but as the summer winds down, so does the practice of four-wheeled gatherings. Every year as I stroll past rows of shiny ...

    Don't forget the snow tires: PGR4 to feature "dynamic" weather
    1178906520

    Project Gotham Racing 4 on the Xbox 360 has new AI, a revised in-car view, a career mode, better graphics, more cars... and a dynamic weather system! Thunderclouds, rain in the day, snow at night, icy roads, the perfect 4-wheel slide that suddenly turns mid-corner into a face full of Armco, it's ...

    Autoblog Project Garage: Cold-air intake, Part II
    1176220980

    With some minor disassembly performed in Part I in anticipation of a new cold air intake, we also performed a few modifications that will be explained further in some later posts. Now that the car and components are ready for installation, let's dive under the hood to finish up this project.

    Autoblog Project Garage: Cold-air intake, Part I
    1176134520

    In the quest to improve performance, few modifications provide the horsepower-per-dollar payback of a proper cold air intake. The issue here is that the factory usually designs for a different set of priorities than us enthusiasts hold dear; that in itself isn't evidence of poor engineering, but ...

    Autoblog Maintenance 301: Part II of our front suspension/steering refresh
    1175010840

    With Part I out of the way and the front end of our Buick Roadmaster in pieces, the next logic step is to start putting things back together. In this installment, we'll get the control arms buttoned up, and pay some loving attention to the steering gear. Click through for more ...

    Autoblog Maintenance 301: Front suspension/steering refresh, Part I
    1174919700

    Suspension components, charged with providing articulation while withstanding a constant beating from rough roads, live an incredibly tough life. Proper maintenance that includes regular lubrication helps, but once the odometer clicks over the sixth digit, it's often time for some fresh components. ...

    Corvette Starter Kit - CHEAP!
    1170345720

    Another eBay gem. The seller is exceedingly honest about what he's offering; a mostly picked-over carcass. There really isn't much left, and we're wondering if the busted up windshield is the result of a rollover. While putting wheels back under this tub would be a monumental undertaking, we know ...

    Hot Rod wants your help selecting its next project car
    1169408040

    We certainly wouldn't claim that the only measure of a gearhead is the number of projects in his or her garage, but certainly it's a useful metric. By that standard, Hot Rod's David Freiburger definitely deserves his post as editor-in-chief, but even he has found himself with more cars than time ...

    The Autoblog Project Garage: Big-brake install, Part III
    1169392980

    After dedicating the last several years to the pursuit of power and handling, we're finally putting forth an effort to slow down our car. Consider this to be an indicaton of hard-earned maturity (as opposed to our receding hairlines, which are just signs of getting old). Our new parts showed up in ...

    Autoblog Maintenance 301: Transmission R&R, Part IV
    1165678020

    A plan is finally in place for rebuilding the broken Tremec T56 transmission from our 1996 Impala SS; now it's time to carefully assemble some components in such a way that it'll survive the sort of abuse that we dish out every time the car hits the racetrack. Follow along as we walk through the ...

    Autoblog Maintenance 301: Transmission R&R, Part III
    1165597740

    When we last visited this project*, we'd torn down a couple of Tremec T56 transmissions - the F-body/Viper hybrid that was making nasty rock-crushing noises from under the floorpan of our Impala SS, and one from a Chevy SSR that was presumably still in good working order, and perhaps could serve as ...

    Project Kimber AC Smart Roadster takes shape
    1165595340

    Following the Smart Roadster's dismal sales failure, the rights and equipment to build it were sold to a British engineering firm called Project Kimber, which, as we reported earlier, will use the diminutive barchetta to resurrect the old AC brand. Although the first sketches didn't show much ...
