Used Ferrari records aren’t always legitimate, as Matt Farah discovered the hard way
Car bibles offers two new series for your automotive entertainment: âCar Confessions And Hard Lessonsâ is dedicated to the mistakes we’ve made and what we’ve learned from them, while âEV Explorerâ shows us our way into the world of electric cars. This week we have new installments in each!
Other interesting slices of auto culture we looked at this week both included small red cars. One is featured in a stunning new series of commercials, and the other has become the most expensive car ever sold on Bring-a-Trailer.
Car bibles Usually focuses on DIY-related content, how-to tips, cultural commentary, and automotive entertainment celebrating low- and mid-budget automotive. We’ve increased our schedule to six posts per day every week, including a daily background photo, so if you like what you see below I’d love to see you visit our site to find out the rest! In short, let’s go to the roundup:
From guest contributor Matt Farah of The smoking tire:
âHere’s what I should have done: Find an independent Ferrari mechanic in the Athens, Georgia area to go see, race and drive the car, and do a thorough mechanical inspection. It would have probably cost around $ 500. .Perhaps it would have taken an hour of my time to research. This would have been the advice I would give to anyone else looking for a vintage car.
Here’s what I actually did: read service records, look at pictures, and watch a two-minute video of the car being started and driven. All seemed decent. I assumed it would take Something, because all old cars need something. But it was the right color, the right amount of used, and the right price. So I wired the money, paid my broker a reasonable search fee, and got my car back. “
From writer Chris Rosales:
âThe auto ads have a big swing from incredibly lame toâ I need to buy this car now. âToyota’s advertising campaign for the GR86 got very close to the latter for a while, but the last few tricks almost did. That implies Initial D, the original host of the series Shuichi Shigeno, and the Drift King himself Keiichi Tsuchiya. “
From guest contributor Victoria Scott:
âGetting your first car is a watershed moment for most car enthusiasts. If you’re like me, you’ve been dreaming about what your first car would be like long before you got a license, browsing Craigslist posts, old magazines, and eBay Motors ads. for the ride of your dreams as soon as you could conceptualize buying a car, imagining what platform you would choose, what style you would try to aim for, what modifications you would make to make it the perfect machine. the car is finally seated in your driveway, it’s not just a new stage of independence and adulthood, it’s a physical representation of years of aspirations. “
From writer Kevin Williams:
âMost of the criticism of the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 comes down to ‘This is boring.’ I don’t like it; not all cars need to be exciting to be good. well, most people (maybe you?) for a week i learned it’s okay because it’s boring. it’s bad because it’s kinda shitty. “
From writer Chris Rosales:
“A Porsche Carrera GT broke Bring-A-Trailer’s auction price record, for $ 1,902,000. Whether you applaud or hoot, that result likely correlates with your net worth, but the auction photos are stunning and the Carrera GT itself is a fine example of Porsche’s analog supercar masterpiece. . “
