Thirty years ago, when Automobile’s first subscribers received the long-awaited debut issue in their mailboxes, these are the two cars they saw first. As disparate as they were similar, the 1985 Ferrari 308 QV and 1986 Toyota MR2 both strove for the same goal: to deliver driving excitement. The difference was how they went about it. For the cover story, David E. Davis Jr. wanted to know how a cut-rate Japanese sports car built almost entirely from econobox parts-bin bits competed against a thoroughbred Italian with an engine drawing from Formula 1 experience. It was a valid question, especially if you couldn’t swing the near-$60,000 price tag for the latter, and it remains interesting today. We see these cars together for the first time at Chateau Julien, the photo location and a picturesque winery in the heart of California’s Carmel Valley. Each vehicle boasts fascinating design details. Sure, the word “pretty” isn’t often used to describe the … [Read more...] about When Magnum P.I. met Mister Two: Ferrari 308 vs. Toyota MR2
roared into 1992 with more refinements and spun quite a few digits on its Buick odometer. Late in ’92, with Bill Clinton packing up his Astroturf-enhanced El Camino and heading for the White House and the days getting shorter, I decided to celebrate my escape from the looming menace of an academic career by tricking out the Impala’s hood with some Fiat X1/9-sourced scoops… and getting back to Interstate 5, where I belonged.I’d envisioned the project by this time, with random application of primer paint, greasy handprints, and road dirt giving it the proper finish, but I felt that was coming up a bit short in the jacked-up-street-racer portion of its image. I asked myself what a young Bill Clinton would have done to, say, a beater ’51 Olds Super in 1965 to impress the young ladies of his fevered Arkansas fantasies. The answer came immediately: Hood scoops!J.C. Whitney’s fine selection of fiberglass scoops, but didn’t see one that really seemed … [Read more...] about 1965 Impala Hell Project, Part 10: Fiat Hood Scoops, Endless Ribbon of Asphalt
For our second 2014 LeMons race at GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, Michigan, we admired some of the greatest endurance-racin’ machines we’d ever seen on Friday, watched those machines duke it out in the rain on Saturday, and then watched the winners roar (or clatter, or coast) across the finish line on Sunday. Here are the trophy winners from the 2014 Where the Elite Meet To Cheat 24 Hours of LeMons.For the first seven seasons of LeMons racing, the Porsche 944 did nothing but dash the hopes and break the hearts of the many teams who felt that perfect 50/50 weight balance ought to ensure road-course domination. It took until the end of the 2013 season for a Porsche to take an overall LeMons win, and that seemed to open the floodgates. The Porch Racing 944 won again in March, then the Floridiot Motorsports 944 won at Sebring in July, and now the United Ducktape Racing 944 has taken the Class A and overall wins at the Where the Elite Meet to Cheat race. The Swiss Racing BMW … [Read more...] about 24 Hours of LeMons Michigan: The Winners!
We met the machines on Friday, watched them blow up on Saturday, and on Sunday we handed out trophies to the winners of the 2013 Cure For Gingervitis 24 Hours of LeMons.Taking the win on laps and Class A trophy was Bucksnort Racing and their ’87 BMW 325i. The Bucksnorts won the Spring ’12 race at Gingerman, and they’ve contended in most of the Midwest Region events since that time.The Bucksnort organization is a family operation, and the whole coonskin-hat-clad clan— including babies and dogs— shows up to keep the team working at maximum efficiency. Usually we’re a bit bored by BMW E30 wins in LeMons, since we have so many of the 80s Bavarians in the series, but the Bucksnorts are all right.The Bucksnort car spent the entire weekend with the ’86 Volvo 245 wagon of the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers glued to its rear bumper. The Little Lebowskis’ car has neither turbocharger nor 16-valve head, its suspension is squishily stock, and it has … [Read more...] about 24 Hours of LeMons Detroit: Winners!
Living in Colorado, I have become something of a connoisseur of low-sales volume, all/four-wheel-drive versions of otherwise commonplace vehicles. The rarest one so far has got to be this ’87 Ford Tempo AWD, but I also have managed to find some fairly unusual All-Trac-equipped Toyota vehicles.There’s this ’90 Camry All-Trac, a car that’s a rarity even in this state and just about unheard of anywhere else, and a few examples of the Corolla All-Trac wagon. Now we have this gleaming gold Previa All-Trac.The Previa featured a bunch of very interesting engineering under its conservative-looking minivan exterior. The engine is a mid-mounted straight-four laid on its side under the front seats, with a weird remote-reservoir oil system (not a dry-sump, despite the urban legends you may have heard, but still different), and the engine accessories are way up front and powered by a long shaft from the engine. Later North American models were supercharged, though this … [Read more...] about Junkyard Find: 1992 Toyota Previa All-Trac
The Pontiac Fiero was a frequent junkyard sighting up until about a decade ago, but now they’re quite rare. So far in this series, we have seen this excessively yellow ’86, this ’88 Formula, and now today’s Iron Duke-powered ’86.The SE was the second-to-top Fiero trim level for ’86, and it came with aluminum wheels and a black “aero package.”Unfortunately, the SE didn’t come standard with the 140-horsepower 2.8-liter V6. Instead, the gnashy, rattly, shaky 2.5-liter pushrod Iron Duke four-cylinder offered 92 horses.You were in the danger zone when you revved the Duke to 4,500 rpm. Meanwhile, the ’86 Toyota MR2 came with a 112-horsepower 1.6-liter engine, weighed 2,282 pounds (versus the Fiero’s 2,499 pounds), and sold for $11,298 (versus the Fiero’s $10,595). On top of that, the ’86 Honda CRX Si listed for $8,279 (though you’d probably end up paying a lot more than that), weighed a mere 1,954 pounds and … [Read more...] about Junkyard Find: 1986 Pontiac Fiero SE
Based on pageviews, you guys didn’t particularly love Wednesday’s Ferrari. So, let us consider something at twenty percent of the price, but with maybe 85 percent of the performance:Toyota MR2 Turbo: 94.5 inch wheelbase, 2,700 lbs, 200 hpFerrari 308 GTSi QV: 92 inch wheelbase, 2,800 lbs, 240 hpNo, I’m not kidding. I don’t have proper instrumented test data at my fingertips, but the generally-close-enough accuracy of Wikipedia for both cars tells me that the performance probably isn’t too far apart.Problem is, most of the MR2s I’ve encountered while shopping for today’s feature look like posterchildren of a circa-2005 NOPI catalog. No, I want a stock one. Today’s 1991 Toyota MR2 Turbo, with around 66,000 miles, looks perfect to me.As much as I complain about poor photography when looking at used car advertisements, sometimes photos that are too good scare me off. These actually look like they could be stock photos from … [Read more...] about Digestible Collectible: 1991 Toyota MR2 Turbo
