From the Vaults: Flipping a SAAB 900

From the Vaults: Flipping a SAAB 900
SAAB may have fallen on hard times in recent years, but it once made some really great cars. And while we preferred the older SAAB 99 design, the Saab 900 of the 1980s and 90s wasn’t a bad car – and it certainly was known for its safety.

Jaguar XJ220 Does a Flaming Burnout

Jaguar XJ220 Does a Flaming Burnout
Previously, on TaxTheRich, we got to witness a Ferrari 288 GTO driving off-road, and a Jaguar XJ220 ripping up some grass in the English countryside. In this clip, the man who refuses to treat his supercars with kid gloves takes that very same XJ220, and smashes the hammer down to create an epic burnout, fueled not just by burning rubber, but a little bit of highly-flammable accelerant to get a small fire going. While we’re pretty sure we’d never want to subject such a rare and impressive specimen to this kind of intense heat, you’ve got to hand it to the guy for his ability to make a spectacle of himself.

Watch Craftsmen Remake a Classic Porsche Body Panel
It can take a tremendous amount of time and money to restore a classic car. In most cases, car owners have to dig through junkyards and auctions to find the parts they need.

From the Vaults: 1984 Monte Carlo Rally
It might sound crazy, but there was a time when rally racing wasn’t controlled by all-wheel drive vehicles. In this video that dates back some 35 years, you’ll get to see classic Lancia 037s take on a pack of Audi AWD quattros in the WRC Monte Carlo Rally. While the Audi team ended up dominating that year, the results one year earlier were a quite different, with the RWD Lancias taking the top two positions.

Porsche 911 Targa GTS Can be Packed With $60,000 in Options!
If you had $60,000 to spend on a car, you could certainly get a nice one, like a fully tricked-out Kia Stinger GT, or even the new Toyota Supra. But when you buy a Porsche, you can rack up that kind of expense on options alone.

Toyota Taunts Supra Fans with Sweet, Sweet Exhaust Note

Toyota Taunts Supra Fans with Sweet, Sweet Exhaust Note
Car fans know that there is more to a car than performance and style. It’s also got to make the right noises. To prove it’s got things well in hand, Toyota is teasing the new 2020 Supra with a blurry clip of the car running around under throttle and going brapity brap. The BMW-sourced inline six sounds really good (if more European than Japanese), and it hurts our souls a bit to think that the car might be too expensive.

Working BMW Transformer: Robots in Disguise

Working BMW Transformer: Robots in Disguise
One of the more incredible custom car builds I’ve ever seen has to be this BMW from Letrons. It looks just like a regular BMW when parked, but then opens up to form a giant mech, just like a Transformer. Unfortunately, the car isn’t big enough to hold a human driver or passenger, but it does drive using a remote control.

The Evolution of the Honda Civic Hatchback
It’s been nearly 45 years since the Honda Civic hatchback first burst onto the scene, kicking off a long line of Japanese hot hatches for decades to come. While today’s Civic Type-R is certainly the most technically impressive and powerful of the Civic hatch family tree, it’s not necessarily everyone’s favorite when it comes to its over the top aero kit.

Racing Drones vs. Stock Cars Should Be a Sport

Racing Drones vs. Stock Cars Should Be a Sport
Racing around in stock cars on a dirt track is a blast; so is flying a high speed drone. So why not combine the two into a single activity? That’s basically what one aerial photographer recently did, when he set off to chase dirt track racers around the track using a fast-flying racing drone.
