One Quick...um...Straight-6 Brick?

Welp, my obsession with Volvos and 90 degree corners has landed me another Swedish brick in my driveway. I picked up the lovely '98 V90 with ~145k miles you see below for the measly sum of $375 (too bad I couldn't snap pics before the snow hit). Gotta love Craigslist. » 1/09/15 9:38am 1/09/15 9:38am

Test Driving a S60R Tonight. Woot!

Going to test drive a S60R with the 6-speed manual after work tonight. It's not a V70R, but it's local and in great shape! So excited! Do I dare move up to a modern brick? To the Oppo members familiar with these....what should I look out for? » 12/08/14 3:41pm 12/08/14 3:41pm

Happy Friday Oppo!

I'm just sitting here watching Rush for the first time and drinking a tasty IPA. What are my fellow Opponauts up to tonight and what is the drink of choice for the evening? » 11/21/14 9:40pm 11/21/14 9:40pm

I Love it When a Plan Comes Together

I dropped my truck off at the shop this morning to get a proper alignment, and I am one step closer to completing it. Over the last couple of weekends I finished: » 11/03/14 9:10am 11/03/14 9:10am

In Honor of Germany, Have some Porsches

Four years ago, I was living in Germany during the World Cup and managed to make it to almost every German auto maker's museum. I thought I'd share my pics of the Porsche museum in honor of Germany's massacre victory yesterday. You'll have to forgive some of the crappy pics...photography is not my strong suit. » 7/09/14 9:03am 7/09/14 9:03am

Sorry Torchinsky, but GM's Ecotec 3-cylinder is the Future of Gasoline…

Let's face it. Small engines are here to stay. Big V8s are being replaced by small V6s. Small V6s are being replaced by little I4s, and now little I4s are being replaced by tiny I3s. Ford was first to the premium pint-sized engine party with their 1.0L Ecoboost, but now GM is showing off its Ecotec line. » 3/27/14 9:30am 3/27/14 9:30am

It's Happening!

This was featured on Bring a Trailer last Saturday. Although it's kind of pricey I'm stoked to be seeing 25 year old wagons being imported to the US. This thing is clean and absolutely gorgeous for its age. I have some friends in Germany, so I may have to have them start shopping for a nice E30 325 wagon for me and… » 2/19/14 1:35pm 2/19/14 1:35pm
