The new Dart is the first car to market that is truly a joint effort between Fiat and Chrysler.

In many ways I felt a lot was riding on this drive when I stepped into this hot blue Dart. Read the rest of this entry »

The most slammed Miata I have ever seen
This thing was low as hell. He went over a little dip in the road and sparks flew out from under his car. This is surely the lowest Miata I have ever seen in person. Sounded solid too. Great car.
