A Clownshoe Crashcourse and Why It’ll be the next E30 M3 (just better)

Are you sick of reading articles praising the E30 M3 as the "last real BMW", "the last pure driving machine from an automotive golden age"? Do you cringe every time you look at those price trend graphs resembling Mount Everest because you regret not having bought that pristine E30 M3 for sale in your neck of the woods… » 1/03/15 12:42pm 1/03/15 12:42pm

OPPO I'm Selling Some Model Cars

First of all my apologies for misusing OPPO as a classifieds section type of thing. I just thought that some fellow Opponauts might be interested in the models I'm parting with, plus holiday season is approaching etc. (Also, could someone please share this to the diecast blog or make me an author there?) » 11/27/14 11:57am 11/27/14 11:57am

Cars that don't get enough Love: Audi Coupe GT

("Cars that don't get enough Love" is a series similar to "Cars that time forgot", except that instead of obscure cars like the Talbot-Matra Murena I will be writing about cars like the Audi Coupe GT, which aren't forgotten, but underappreciated or ignored by the majority of car enthusiasts.) » 1/19/14 2:26pm 1/19/14 2:26pm
