    Bubs' Bikes

    I've seen enough bike threads here in "Post Your Car" that I finally don't feel weird doing it myself. :mrgreen: Currently I have two motorcycles - I've been riding since I was barely old enough to walk and had my motorcycle license right when I turned 16. Since then I've owned a variety of...

    Ownership Verified: Multi-Motorsport / Daily Driver B13 SE-R (and B14 SE-R DD / Ice Racer)

    I started RallyCross in 2011 with a B12 Sentra and had an absolute blast. Bought it for $300, put new cooling system components in it and drove it daily alongside racing it for an entire year to complete the 2011 NER Championship. I was originally planning on getting a B13 SE-R right after...

    Ownership Verified: Dennis the RallyCross Wagon

    After a very fun and exciting first year in SCCA Rallycross with my $300 daily-driven '88 Nissan Sentra, I sold it to a gentleman who wants to get started in Rallycross - and went to school with my hero - Wyatt Knox! So he will be back next month running the car in Stock Front again, which will...

    Bubs' Rides (RallyX Sentra, Subaru-Vanagon and Versa, some bikes!)

    Decided to make a tidy little thread for everything! I tend to have a number of vehicles because I find some pretty good deals; plus cars and bikes are my hobby, but I'd never be able to afford them if I didn't buy smart! Follow me at www.perkinsrally.tumblr.com ! [My Rallycross Thread] I have...

    Day at the Car Auction II

    So I went down to the auction again today, this time to scope out manual cars for my rallycross beater. Let's begin. This relatively new Cadillac just needs a quick buff. There were a few promising cars fitting my criteria, but that promise might evaporate as soon as I hear them run. I've...

    '88 Nissan Sentra running hot

    I just picked up this '88 Sentra 4-speed at auction for $375. It runs and drives fine, but runs on the hot side. Doesn't seem to overheat, but it might if I let it idle too long. 136,000 miles. Runs hot (according to gauge) Cooling fans do not kick on Coolant is obviously old and dirty (nasty...

    My '75 Kawasaki H1 500 Triple

    I ran a search and realized after all this time, I never posted my bike here outside of the motorbikers discussion thread, so here it is! I've been on road-legal bikes for almost four years now and at over 20,000 miles. Trail bikes for even longer. My dad is 49 now and he's been riding since...

    What a Small World (Rallycross and an old Saab)

    This is a long story, but bear with me. I assure you that it's interesting. Way back before I was even old enough to drive, my dad bought a gray Saab 900S at an auction. He had just moved back from California, this is back in 2002 or 2003. I loved that car, we went everywhere in it. I learned...

    (56k) A Day at the Car Auction

    Today I went with my father and a good friend of ours to a car auction that we have frequented since I was in grade school. We were looking for a work van to beat on for the winter, and our friend was looking to replace his Ford Taurus, which he had bought at the auction for $400 four years ago...

    Jalopnik: The Audi Quattro Is Go For Production

    The Audi Quattro Is Go For Production Can't even tell you how much I want one of these, even if that front end looks like that on the showroom models. Problem is that the limited production car will be too expensive for me to afford...ever. Plus they may all be sold out before production even...

    They Want Ten Thousand Dollars for This?

    My friends, please take the time to gaze upon this piece of automotive perfection that is for sale at a local pawn shop, and is apparently a 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC. For anyone lacking in Mercedes-Benz knowledge, this means it is equipped with a 5.6 liter V8. The "S" stands for "Sonderklasse"...

    The Quirky Cars of New England (Now Featuring Harlequin VR6 Baywindow Bus!)

    I went on a trip to Old Orchard Beach, Maine and found all sorts of quirky European iron along the way. Unfortunately I missed an opportunity to grab photos of a mint V-12 Jaaaaaaag right by the ocean. Okay, now the weird European iron begins. First I found this aircooled Vanagon camper and a...

    Kenny "K-Strass" Strasser: Yo Yo Master

    If you were to simply watch the news videos, you may be led to believe that this awkward, bumbling man is for real. When you find out that he is actually an actor who has a knack for crashing local news programs, this saga immediately becomes epic. He has appeared on a few morning news shows...

    Nissan GT-R Owner Charged With Insurance Fraud - Thanks to Youtube Video

    Remember this awesome video showing some dumb punk wrecking his GT-R? Well, apparently he tried telling the insurance company that his sister crashed the car on the freeway.

    Das Versa

    I finally had it with the Saturn, too many problems coming all at once. So, I just sold that for $750. I'm finally at the age where I can afford full coverage insurance so I decided to get a newer car. I was looking at some of the newer Imprezas but insurance on those is still far too expensive...

    Bubs Benz-en-Schnitzel

    I went halves with my dad on this '88 Mercedes-Benz 420 SEL. It was more or less a random endeavor, I happened across it the other day and took some photos, my dad wound up seeing the pictures and he wanted to check it out in person. After taking it for a drive, we decided to go halves on it. It...
