Many people think that racing is kind of a two trick pony. They see NASCAR and F1 and think that's pretty much it for scheduled events, but in reality there are a lot more types of racing out there that are considered much better and more competitive than either events, but they've had trouble catching on and there's a few reasons why. In this episode of #carsidechat we discuss the reasons and how they can be fixed so that you know they exist.
We really enjoy big cars and this 1966 Caddi is no exception, but does it drive nice? Is it worth the investment? Well in today's episode we're going to drive it and tell you how much, the upkeep, the things you may run into and most notably, what it's like to drive!
Many of us envision rubbing elbows with the elite for just a single moment, but to be invited to a car show specifically associated with the exotic car community would be a dream come true! Our friends over at Boston Auto Blog got just that opportunity when they received a summons to an invite only exotic show that was definitely hush, hush! The good news, is he wanted to share it with you so you can see what it's like to break bread with some of the coolest people on the block in some of the coolest cars in the world.
Have you considered daily driving a drift car? Well you may want to watch this video first to see what it costs to purchase one, the new pitfalls, and what the ride will actually feel like. Tell us what you think! Would you consider owning a Drift Toyota Corrolla?
I'm so happy to finally have this show started. I had the idea banging around all winter and we had the dedicated drivers since the beginning of the year and now it's here! In these episodes we show you what it's like to drive aftermarket vehicles of all kinds in case, in the future, you want to consider doing them yourself! It's a great idea and there's really nothing like it on television today!
In our first episode we take out and air bag equipped rust monster. Basically a truck that has only been fixed enough to pass inspection and drive safely, but on the exterior it's rust and other components make what can only be called an artistic creation and show you, the cost, upkeep, and the driving experience! I can only say I was shocked!

We had come off a drenched April and coming into May we were, needless to say, timid as we looked toward some more good shows. It rained all the way up to the event, but as the morning closed in the clouds moved out as if to say, "you get this one!" The chill moved away with it and cars began to arrive. Slowly at first, but then more frequently, until the parking lot began filling up.
Then we heard the thunder of engines as they crested from the track, racers getting ready for the next day. Then suddenly I heard something that wasn't a race car, it sounded like normal cars hitting the track and sure enough the spectators from the show were racing on the track. In some very cool battles including an amazing fight between a Nissan GTR and a Monte Carlo that meant business we climbed an elimination tree that climaxed in a single victor. Who won? You'll have to watch and see!
The Star Drive-In Cruises are some of the best in our area, but the cold and potential rain has just been a nightmare this year. Regardless, some great guys came out with some great cars and if they're willing to come out, I'm willing to show up and share it with you. It's short, but highly enjoyable.
