Jim’s Blog: Buy it Done or Build it Yourself?

A friend of mine called me a few weeks back to shoot some photos of a GTO out in the weeds on his property. After years and years of an “I’ll build it someday” mentality, he’s finally decided that it’s just never going to happen. Time to sell the GTO while there’s still some GTO left to sell.

Jim’s Blog: 4-speed or Not?

I tend to think of my best car buy as the next one I’m going to buy, but it doesn’t usually work out that way. If I had to pick one car, it would be the 2001 Camaro SS I bought for $18,500 back in 2007 or so. Read More
