  • 2006 Hyundai Tiburon GS

    Choosing a car is a very tough decision. Buying a new car is almost like entering a new relationship, after all--it could go sour in a matter of weeks, or instantly it can get under your skin and excite you every time you turn the key. It's even more true of a college car, since it's about all you can afford--and any betrayal could cut into your tuition money, your book budget, or God help us, no, the beer money. Sure, any old car can become your friend over the years, but a really exciting car will make you enjoy driving all the time. Even if you're just going to the student union, you will...

    Name Your All-Time Favorite Fast Or Fancy Ford

    The era of social media is fully upon us when even 100-plus-year-old carmakers are adopting outlets like Twitter and Facebook as part of their efforts to build brand reputation. Sometimes it's even interesting. Take this tweet for @Ford, the official Ford Twitter account: @Ford: In 1953, Ford...

    Pebble 2010: A Fistful Of Ferraris

    Whether racing, cruising the nearest strip, or artfully sitting still, Ferrari's cars are the very definition of desirable. We found these three cars particularly interesting, and hopefully so will you. First up: the 1964 Ferrari 250 LM Scaglietti Berlinetta. Racing is in Ferrari's genes, and we're...

    Pebble 2010: Alfa Romeo, Fiat Don't Need No Stinkin' Ferraris

    Go to any concours in the world (Pebble Beach included) and you're likely as not to find a wild herd of Prancing Stallions among the crowd. But there are Italian cars beyond Ferrari, and these Alfas and Fiats put a point on that fact. Daring lines, innovative technologies, and pure aesthetic beauty...

    Pebble 2010: Ghia, In All Its Glory

  • The Quail 2010: Odds and Ends Gallery, part one

    There are so many cars, so many objects of lust and art packed into California's central coast this weekend that it's simply too much to cover it all in detail. But ogling can be just as fun even if you don't know the name of the ogle-ee. Even this gallery contains just a sampling of the hundreds of cars on display, but it might just help dull the pain for those of you not lucky enough to be in attendance this year--or it may serve as motivation to make plans for next. There are so many cool, weird, and plain-old-gorgeous shots we've had to split the gallery into parts, with the second to...
