As far as offbeat colors go, this Evergreen BMW M Coupe is up there, especially with its matching green interior. We spoke with the owner and I believe he said it was one of just 16 like it on this Earth. I’ve always loved the Clownshoe and its shooting brake design. BMW took a roadster and made it into a genuinely practical coupe with a unique design. It’s a future classic for sure on style alone, but it’s also a genuine enthusiast’s car from what I consider the end of the golden era for BMW. Values are already climbing.
Enjoy the photos.

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!

In modern muscle car terms, I consider this perfection. The mighty Dodge Demon wearing Plum Crazy Purple. It is magnificent!
I was thrilled to see this thing at the Driven By Purpose event in Liberty State Park. The Challenger just has that classic muscle car flavor at a level that the Mustang and Camaro don’t quite match. 50 years after the hay day of the American muscle car, Chrysler is still staying true to their recipe. I love it so much!
Enjoy the gallery.

The new Daddy of Corvettes and what will likely be the most powerful front-engined production Vette of all time. Oh yeah, she’s bad!
I appreciate a nice clean slammed car, and this Nissan GTR was top notch.
I’ve recently been spending some time behind the wheel of my buddy’s Fiat 500 Abarth and I find myself thinking about it a lot. I drove one briefly a few years back when they first came out and I was enamored with it, but spending more time with the Abarth only makes you want one at a deeper and deeper level. It has all of those intangible things that don’t immediately jump out on paper, and those things give it what I call “staying power.” The Abarth offers a depth of experience that will keep it interesting long after you sign on the dotted line.

The ultimate Cayman thus far. This was one of three Cayman GT4s that showed up to Cars and Coffee, but it was the only one in red. Great look!
The Alfa Stelvio QV is the SUV to have if you really wanted a high-performance sports sedan, but needed AWD and some extra practicality. This red one was at Concorso Ferrari, and I fell even more in love with it there.
Regular drivers in regular cars doing regular things in their regular lives. If you ask most people, they don’t aspire to be just regular, yet, overall, most of us wind up doing regular shit day in and day out. Life defaults to being excruciatingly routine if you let it. The “good enough” mindset sets in, and one day you wake up just another average Joe or Jill. It’s a fact of life. We all make sacrifices in the name of convenience and practicality because to do otherwise usually causes more struggle than necessary. That makes everything work smoothly, but it also totally dulls your life experience, and frankly, it’s depressing.
Compromise is the reality, though. The fact is, most genuinely remarkable things in life are exceedingly impractical and don’t really fit into the lives of most people. In our minds, we’d all love to be that stylish and interesting person who’s always going on adventures, seemingly without a care in the world… or a budget, for that matter. That idealistic perception can never really be fulfilled, but what we all can do is make our compromises intelligent. Okay, maybe you can’t really be the guy who daily drives a sexy classic Italian sports car. Even if you can afford one, if you have a family it doesn’t really work out that well, and that’s not even counting the car’s functional lack of reliability. The dream doesn’t have to die with a boring minivan or nameless sedan, though. There is a very real middle ground that can give you most of the experiences you’re yearning for while also satisfying your practical needs.
Car enthusiasts, like myself, are well aware of this, but the average consumer may not be as turned on to it. I’ve seen a lot of more casual car people go from driving something genuinely fun to something awful like a Minivan or a mundane SUV. It’s sad, and it’s not necessary. Meet Alfa Romeo, a company that makes sports cars of different sizes and shapes.

Roadkill may no longer be posting new videos to YouTube, but a best-of is always a welcome break from the monotony.
I’ve always loved the RS 6 and this one has been modified very cleanly. It was a nice sight at Cars and Caffe, standing out in the sea of exotics.
I learned to drive on a 944 S2, so I’ll always have a soft spot for the front-engine 4 cylinder Porsches.
