Stumbling upon a piece of racing heritage like this is nothing short of breathtaking, and dammit if its asking price doesn’t make us wish we were one of North America’s elite multi-millionaires.

Carspotting: 1990 Lotus Esprit
While at a local Cincinnati performance shop the other day, I came across a bit of a surprise. Although you’re more likely to see a “hawkeye” WRX on a lift at Subaru specialist Turn In Concepts, it’s not uncommon to come across the occasional Porsche or BMW either.

Colorado Legislation Would Ban Rolling Coal
I don’t hate the environment. I very much like to spend time outdoors up here in Colorado, but I don’t worry too much about being green. Still, few things on the road get under my skin more than idiots in diesel trucks rolling coal.
