Some cars you’d expect to have a lot of horsepower on hand—the 707-hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat or 730-hp Ferrari F12berlinetta, for instance. A GMC Yukon though? With 420 ponies it’s certainly no slouch, but far from a modern heavyweight hitter. That is, until now.  Continue Reading »

1974 Ford Escort MK1 Restored To Its Former Glory; Promptly Does Donuts

Here in America, the Ford Escort is primarily associated with automotive punishment. It was a total tin can, devoid of any redeeming qualities, and certainly would not be thought of as a classic by any means.
