10 Most Reliable Engines Running Beyond 300,000 Miles

There are a few different reasons why a car might stay on the road forever. When a model turns up on the list of most reliable vehicles every year, the automaker deserves a great deal of credit. The company created something that could stand the wear and tear of daily driving, regardless of climate or driver skill. In some cases, owners have an attachment to the vehicle and will pay whatever it takes to keep it going. But it is not necessarily a good value to keep something just because…

Most Backwards Engine Swap Ever Gives Muscle Car 3-Cylinder Diesel

Recently, I made a plea to SEMA builders to try and build some cars where the usual huge V8 engines are replaced by tiny, anemic little engines of two or three cylinders, just out of some deep-seated perversion. It looks like that idea has sort of already started, as this Plymouth Roadrunner with a 3-cylinder two-stroke diesel demonstrates. Now, it’s not exactly like my idea because this Detroit Diesel 3-cylinder engine is not exactly a tiny little oil-chugging mouse. It’s a 2.6-liter beefy little brute making 101 HP and 205…

Vintage 1937 Film Perfectly Explains the Secrets of Engine Lubrication

Pretty much every engineering challenge inherent to the internal combustion engine comes down to one simple thing: friction. Countless hours have gone into creating surfaces, coatings, oils, and bearings that attempt to dispel this universal force. And yet, the most basic part of an engine’s friction coping method, the lubrication system, hasn’t really changed in the past 80 years. It’s all about the even distribution of an adequate amount of clean oil. And even if you’re already abidingly familiar with the inner workings of an oil pump, or you’ve witnessed…

A Quick Look At The Original 1966 Monkeemobile: Only 2 Built

The Monkees is an American sitcom that aired on NBC from September 1966 to March 1968. It followed the adventures of four young men, collectively called the “Monkees”, trying to hit it big as a rock n’ roll band. They did and went on to sell 75 million records. The television series that launched the band to stardom featured a highly modified Pontiac GTO, and now a huge fan of the show named Mel Gutherie purchased it at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The GTO has some overblown body modifications…

This Barn Find Lamborghini Miura Is Back on the Road After Sitting for 25 Years

A Lamborghini Miura isn’t exactly a common barn find. After all, if you own a Miura, you tend to remember having it. But the rarity of that situation (combined with the rarity of the car itself) is part of what makes this particular Miura so special. In an interview with Petrolicious, the current owner says his 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 originally belonged to one of his grandmother’s cousins. He worked on it himself, drove it regularly, and even commuted in it. But unfortunately, a brake and clutch repair in the…

12.4 LITRE RADIAL-ENGINED 1939 PLYMOUTH PICKUP

By silodrome Dropping a 12.4 litre Jacobs R-755 radial engine into a 1939 Plymouth pickup truck seems like the sort of thing you might do if you’d been tasked with the job of building a modern chariot for Mars – the ancient Roman God of War. The truck is the work of the Corns family, based out of Colorado where they run a 40 acre salvage yard with hundreds of vehicles and tens of thousands of parts. Each Wednesday evening the Corns family invites friends to come by and they set…

THIS CUSTOMIZED ’69 CHEVY BLAZER FROM THE MAD GENIUSES AT ICON 4X4 IS A BRIGHT BLUE BEAST

By DAN CARNEY Icon 4×4‘s customized classic off-roaders are famous works of art among gearheads. But truck drivers are notably loyal to their favorite brand, so no matter how gorgeous an Icon Bronco or Toyota FJ may be, a Chevy guy isn’t going to buy one. Icon 4×4 Instead, a Chevy die-hard convinced Icon boss Jonathan Ward that it was time to do a classic Chevrolet Blazer. Even starting was a challenge, because as fans of old Chevys know, these things rust! Icon 4×4 Eventually Icon located a suitable 1969 Blazer…

One of the Twelve Original Jaguar E-Type Lightweights Is For Sale

Back in 1964, the Jaguar E-Type Lightweight wasn’t as desirable as it is today. The company planned on building 18 Lightweights for competition use, but only managed to sell 12 examples before production ended. Since these cars are so rare, they’ve become a holy grail for classic Jaguar collectors everywhere, and almost never come up for sale. That’s why we think this particular example will be the star of the show once it goes up for auction in August.  This particular Lightweight was the factory works entry for Jaguar for…

The Ten Most Sexist Car Ads Of All Time

Different times mean different standards, but it’s still shocking to see how blatantly sexist the car industry’s ads were right up until the last two decades. Here are 10 of the most egregious examples sure to make you cringe. 10.) Hurst Dual Gate Transmission The message is clear here. Not only will your woman appreciate that you went for the automatic instead of the performance-oriented four-speed stick, you will also have a personal key that can prevent her from using the “competition gate.” Nice touch!
