Tomica Lexus IS350 F Sport: Review

What comes into mind when one thinks of Lexus? It may be their solid reputation for building reliable upmarket cars. Or maybe it is their incredibly smooth and quiet driving experience. Or perhaps it is their status as Japan's best answer to the German kings of luxury cars; namely BMW, Mercedes Benz and Audi. » 4/17/14 3:05pm Thursday 3:05pm

Next CCC adventure, the brawling v8 Brits: Aston Martin V8 Vantage Vs. …

In my mind, the list of prettiest cars in the world is a small one. But the one company, that is making the prettiest cars in the world, is Aston Martin, by miles. There are other cars that are very pretty, but I don't think any really come close to Aston's perfect mix of aggression and elegance. This is where the nice … » 3/31/14 12:44pm 3/31/14 12:44pm

Later Models with Noise: Buick Riviera (and Century, for reasons)

There's been some talk about Buick lately, and I have to say, not all of it has been great. I love Buick, and that love isn't just for… » 3/28/14 6:48pm 3/28/14 6:48pm

2015 Subaru WRX STI Driven and Reviewed

First car from CCC! 2001 BMW e39 M5 driving experience.

I've pretty much followed the CCC since they started. I didn't, don't, and never want to be the asshole that ruins one of their cars., or a clutch, or a wheel, or a tire even. Yes, my deductible is low, and the potential cost is somewhat manageable. But that's not the point. The point is I like cars. I know how much… » 2/03/14 9:01pm 2/03/14 9:01pm
