There once was a time when Toyota sold sports cars. Seriously. The company now best known for beige once offered a fleet of interesting, sporty, high-performance cars. The Celica, Supra, Celica Supra, rear-drive Corollas, FX16 GTS, and MR2 all came from your […]

Yes, it’s the Volvo S80, complete with twin-turbo 286hp tranverse-mount straight-six. Looks like an insurance-auction car, and it was a runner. Except for the banged-up hood (which may have been the result of […]

My current garage, however, is quite boring, with a domestic minvan and SUV, and a rusty/immobile Miata. For the last four years, my automotive wanderlust has been mostly sated by writing for Bring A Trailer. I’ve been able to stave my […]

I’ll continue that with today’s find: Dodge’s high-performance version of the second-gen Dodge Intrepid: The Intrepid R/T. You got the 242-horsepower 3.5 liter V6 in this car, which was pretty decent for […]
