Mid-Engined V6: 1984 Honda Civic

There’s no denying that the 1984 Honda Civic, while well-built, didn’t offer a lot of performance or excitement. One look at this Civic with its low stance, big alloys, and the boxy fender flares, suggests that this is anything… more»

Most of us know of the famous Honda ATC90, arguably the one that started it all in 1970, as in the three-wheeler craze. This is the other one, or one of the other ones as many motorcycle companies made… more»

Rust Free Original Survivor: 1974 Toyota Hilux

It seems like more often than not, the term “rust-free” can rarely be used to describe a vintage Japanese vehicle. How many of us have found what we thought would be a great example and then we see it… more»
