2013 Coronado Speed Week

I just got back from this year’s Speed Week Vintage Race at the Coronado Naval Base, near San Diego. This was going to be a fun year for us four-banger guys. They got rid of all of the big bore Trans Am cars this year (as much as we all love them). So, it was […]

Making My Peace with Old Yeller

Old Yeller II is a famous race car from the ‘50s. It’s a kind of raunchy-looking roadster that was hand-built by Max Balchowsky. There were only a few American sportscars back in those days, so races were pretty handily dominated by gorgeous Ferraris and Maseratis. Then, along comes this pale yellow, backyard-made American mutt that […]

Paul Newman Racing Documentary

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m a Datsun guy (don’t you judge). As I became successful as a comedian, I started picking up vintage Datsun race cars. During the hunt for a new car to add to my growing collection, I came across an ‘84 Nissan for sale, which Paul Newman had raced. Truth be told, […]

Every one of these events is an eye-popping smorgasbord of high-dollar cars and […]

Lamborghini Aventador, When Not to Get Noticed

It’s hard to talk about the Aventador in comparison to any kind of normal driving or car ownership experience. A supercar or hypercar (or whatever they’re calling them these days) is so different in every way from even the nicest of production cars, that I don’t know how they can both be called cars. Sure, […]

Paul Newman’s 300ZX at 2013 Rolex Monterey Historics

For this year’s Rolex Monterey Historics, I brought one of my favorite new vintage race cars, Paul Newman’s 300zx 2+2 turbo. I’ve only driven this car once, to get the feel of it at a rich white guy track day at Laguna Seca earlier in the year. Before this event, though, the car hadn’t been […]

Singer Vehicle Design’s Porsche 911

A while back, I had run into Rob Dickinson up on Mulholland. He was up there with his hot rodded 911. You may know Rob as the singer of the band Catherine Wheel, but he’s also a car guy. He said he knew I wasn’t big on German cars, but he told me about his […]
