We Bought A Pair Of Honda CT70 Barn Finds!

I recently walked into the Barn Finds’ office and was greeted by a bright green 1969 Honda CT70s motorcycle. Jesse has long been into bicycles and it isn’t uncommon for me to find a new bike sitting in our… more»

Todd’s Garage: 1972 BMW 2002 tii Project

Before the birth of the iconic 3-series, BMW’s 2002 defined the now-popular class of two-door sports sedans. Parked since at least 2007, this 1972 BMW 2002 tii found a home in my garage after a friend decided it needed… more»

Barn Finds 1958 Berkeley SE328!

A few days ago, we featured a Berkeley SE328 that reader Ikey H tipped us off to. Shortly after Russ D wrote it, we realized that this little rarity was right here in Boise, Idaho. We’ve been on the… more»

Fitch’s Folly! Todd’s 1981 Imperial by Chrysler

Project Update: Jeff’s 1986 Isuzu Trooper Project

The Junkyard 1986 Isuzu Trooper Has Landed!

Restoring The Paint On Our 1974 Porsche 914 Project!

We’ve been bitten by the 914 bug, so when this bright red example came up for sale just a few days ago with a low asking price, we snatched it up! It took us all of about 4 hours… more»

Junkyard Find Mercedes Cosworth Updates: Into the Shop!

When we last left off, I was probably running out of interesting things to tell you about my junkyard-find 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16¬†Cosworth. Man, that’s a mouthful. Anyway, the good news is a few months ago, it finally left… more»

Junkyard Trooper, Part 3: She Runs!

I’m going to get in front of some potential disappointment right now and tell you this: I don’t have a video of my junkyard Trooper running. Blame it on the Georgia heat, but I neglected to document the truck… more»

Jeff’s New Project: Mini-Cars Go Kart!
