Highlights from Radwood Philadelphia 2018

IMG_7000

This was the first Radwood event on the east coast, and it was surely one of my favorite events of this year. Radwood is a car-based celebration of 1980s and 90s culture and the stuff that showed up was extremely interesting. I’ll let the highlights do the rest of the talking for now. There’s much more to come. Enjoy!

I love the E46 M3 and I especially love it in Laguna Seca Blue. This one was very nicely modified and it really popped against the exotics and classics at the Scarsdale Concours.

Enjoy the photos!

Welcome to the E38–or, the best 7 Series ever produced.

When I was a kid, my friend’s dad gave me a lift home in his brand new 1999 BMW 740iL. I was blown away by how nice it was to just sit in even as a nine year old. Since then I’ve wanted a BMW 7-Series from this generation. Here, Doug Demuro walks us through the highest end version of the era–the 750iL V12 with the M Sport package. Enjoy the video.

Highlights from Cars and Caffe at Garden State Plaza Fall 2018

IMG_6014

I love Cars and Caffe because it draws the entire enthusiast spectrum, everything from beater Miatas to classic muscle cars to heavily modified cars to million dollar hypercars. It’s a real show of enthusiasm for the automobile, and there’s no other show quite like it.

I’m a firm believer that car people are largely the same, just at different socio-economic levels. The person in the E46 M3 would be the one in the Ferrari 488 if he had more money, and vice versa if the person in the Ferrari had less money. You can really see that when you go to a show like this.

Naturally, I tend to focus more on the exotics in my photos, despite me being the guy rolling up to the show in a Miata. Rest assured, I’d do the same with a Pagani if I had those sort of means.

Lots of people really love cars, and that becomes crystal clear when you’re at this show. There is hope yet for the enthusiast automobile!

Enjoy the gallery.

Mini Gallery of the September 2018 Caffeine and Carburetors at New Canaan, CT

A few weeks ago I was able to make up for lost time by attending the first of two fall Caffeine and Carburetors events in New Canaan, CT. This one, held on the main drag, was not as heavily-populated as some have been in the past, but as it was my first time, I was still very happy to have come up. These are some of my favorite shots of the day and I hope to attend more of these down the road. The next one will be in October, likely late in the month, and will serve as the season finale. Enjoy the photos. Continue reading Mini Gallery of the September 2018 Caffeine and Carburetors at New Canaan, CT

Test Driven: BMW X3 xDrive M40i (Grade: B)

BMW X3 XDrive M40i Cargo Area

Compact crossovers have taken the American market by storm in epic proportions. Sales of sedans are declining, and sales of luxury crossovers from brands like Mercedes, Audi, Lexus, and the like have gone through the stratosphere. Cadillac’s best selling vehicle is the XT-5, the replacement for the SRX. Meanwhile, BMW started working this segment with the first X5 way back in the Bush Administration. Two Presidents and eighteen years later, we face the new X3, a car that I mocked often when it launched in 2004. Now in its third generation, I took the keys to this blue M Sport (as ridiculous as it sounds) and found it to be quite an eye-opener. Continue reading Test Driven: BMW X3 xDrive M40i (Grade: B)
